Sale Purchases:
As promised, I'm sharing my sale purchases from the current promotion for those who like the chance to get the items at the same discounted price! I tried to choose pieces that will transition well into Spring, so here's what I got:

Shop these pieces:

Jacket: The jacket is not on sale but you can use a mailer coupon (which I did) and it's been on my "to try" list for awhile. It's also not in stores near me so there's no other way for me to check it out.  I've been pinning looks (like this one) with Camel jackets and coats on Pinterest and if this fits right, I think it will go well with a lot of pieces in my existing wardrobe.

TopI haven't bought a Portofino shirt in ages but I'm ready for a bright, springy new color. Carylee has one in a similar color that I've always loved (see her outfit with it here), so I hope Fluro Guava looks as good in person!

Black Supersoft Jeans: I picked up a second pair of Supersoft jeans (see this exact pair on Skye) because they're just so comfy! After sizing up with my last pair and finding they stretch a bit with wear, I decided to get my normal Express size for these. (Short length, of course.) You can read my full fit notes on these and other Express jeans here.

Light Cropped Jeans: These are cropped to 28"...which is not really going to be cropped on me. Once again with spring on the brain I'm thinking these will pair well with lighter colors and sandals.

Fitness Recap:

Here's a look at the workouts I've done this week, based around Cathe's STS Meso 3 weight training.

Saturday: Kickboxing + Martial Arts classes (Local Studio)
Sunday: Dance Class (Local Studio)
Monday: Legs: STS Meso 3 Week 4 Plyo Legs
Tuesday: Abs: Cathe Butts & Guts Ab Section 1 + Cathe Imax 3 Step Cardio Premix
Wednesday: Shoulders, Bis, Tris: STS Meso 4 Week 4
Thursday: Cathe Turbo Barre Lower Body Express Premix
 Friday: Chest and Back: STS Meso 3 Week 4

Notes and Modifications: 
I made the same modifications to the upper body work as I mentioned in Week One of this Phase. On Thursday I was short on time so I condensed that workout to about 35 minutes by skipping some of the quad work. With Plyo Legs on Monday I felt like it worked my quads harder than my glutes so I wanted to balance it out with some bonus work.

That's it for today since I covered a lot of ground earlier this week, especially with the sale post! I'm headed into a fun and busy weekend so feel free to follow along on Snapchat (@ontheDailyX) if you want to see some snippets of San Diego winter living, but I'll be back on Tuesday with some of my recent Pinterest hits and misses so hope to see you then!

  1. I should have read your post before making me second order lol, they supersoft jeans are actually tempting but oh well. I have not purchase a portofino in a while as well, but I have to be careful with the colors that I buy because I always end up wearing the same ones but I did get the stripe bf shirt, surprise surprise. I also got a pair of jeans, I really hope they fit because they are so cute.


  2. I love the last two outfits! Your striped sweater is so cozy and that blush jacket is such a great piece! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Looking forward to seeing how you style that camel jacket. You have the best jacket collection there is and that light blush one is still one of my favorites. I don't have STS, but anything Cathe and plyo is a reason for shortening the next day's workout. That woman has springs on the bottom of her feet. Have a great weekend Gina.

  4. I LOVE all of your Kendra Scott jewellery! It's so bold and pretty!


  5. Your new portofino purchase definitely makes me excited for spring colors again! And I can't wait to see how that jacket and your light washed jeans work out!! Edge of my seat!!

  6. Love your pink hues in this week's looks. I'm been crushing on camel too, so that jacket you ordered looks great!

  7. I love that bright pink top and that Kendra Scott necklace!! I might cave and get that dress even though it isn't included... Have a great weekend Gina!

  8. I currently have items sitting in my cart. Should I hit the button or what? LOL decisions, decisions... I love your two middle looks the most. The pink port is such a pretty color and the striped cardi is a stunner as well!


  9. oh have a fun weekend darl!

    that shirt that carylee has is so pretty, i hope yours works out as well. i don't think i can pull off colours like that but i always try! i really like your sam edelman sandals. are they super comfy to walk around a bunch in?

    do you change out your main purse and all your stuff in it often? i notice you always have different bags, i am so lazy that i can't imagine taking everything out and putting it in a new bag. not judging, totally curious. i really like the wine coloured bag and i think i'm gonna get that one :)

    1. Regarding the sandals- yes, they are SUPER comfy to walk around in. The soles are nicely padded and they don't rub any part of my foot.

      As for my bags, I do change fairly often. I have it on my list of things to blog about at some point because it took me a long time to get on board with colored bags/bag variety because I didn't want to switch my stuff. Now I have a system down and it takes 5 seconds to switch bags so it's no big deal to me anymore. I've gotten used to it and it's rarely a nuisance. Every once in awhile yes, if I'm in a super rush and head downstairs to leave and my shoes are on and then realize I need to head back up and get a different bag because my bag doesn't match my outfit at ALL. It just doesn't seem to happen that often though or I probably would have given up bag-changing! (And yes, the wine bag is an excellent choice! Very versatile and should go with A LOT of your wardrobe from what I've seen!)

  10. Amazing outfits Gina! I'm obsessed with that bright pink top, so fabulous. And your jewelry is always onpoint.
    Happy weekend!

  11. I haven't shopped Express in quite a while, but I made an order yesterday during the sale. I ordered the dark wash supersoft jeans in 2 sizes, to see which I like better. Although it wasn't on sale, I also tried the textured knit. One Eleven hoodie. It's a gamble because I usually don't like pullover hoodies without a deep v-neck or half-zip. But I couldn't resist, and it's easy enough to return in store if I don't love it. :)

    Here's the hoodie I'm referring to: http://www.express.com/clothing/women/textured-knit-express-one-eleven-hoodie/pro/8002459/cat1820002

  12. Pretty selection!
    Have a nice week-end!

  14. So many great looks! Love the blush jacket!

    Hope you have an amazing week ahead of you!
