Thanks to your help here, we recently spent a Saturday in San Diego brunching with Christian's cousins and biking around Balboa Park.  It was so nice to getaway even for just a day and we are so thankful that even with Christian's busy schedule we can still fit in so many adventures thanks to our location.  I'm always reminding these Californians how lucky they are - they don't even realize!

It was the perfect opportunity to wear my new wifey tee!  I felt cute and comfortable, but Christian was all, "you're wearing that to bike around?"  Um...yes.  I should also share that I did just fine in my tee and jeans!  He's so proud to call me his wifey.

wifey tee - Style.Love.Living (c/o) | denim - Forever21 | sweater - Gypsy Couture Boutique | flats - Shopbop, similar here and here | sunnies - Forever21, similar here | watch - Swatch | cuff - Shop Prima Donna (c/o) | gold bangle - Bip & Bop (c/o) | necklaces - Bip & Bop (c/o) | belt - Hermes, love this belt | cross my heart ring - INPink (c/o)

And yes, these are mens jeans.  I was looking for a pair of boyfriend jeans to distress for an upcoming collaboration (stay tuned), but I couldn't find any girls jeans that were loose enough.  Enter the men section. When in doubt, think outside the box!

Thank y'all so much for reading. Would you ever wear mens jeans?  I'm I just totally crazy?  You can tell me, I promise I can take it.  Don't forget to enter the Rumor Boutique clutch giveaway! XO -

Wednesday Wish List

Whites and greys and rockstar heels - this is what I'm craving this week!  An item in this lineup that I have and love is Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lip gloss.  I have three colors and the consistency and color is perfection!

So many open back and off the shoulder dresses that are just begging for a summer tan.  Two products I love for quick and easy self tanner are Tarte's body self tanner and tanning towelettes and Jergen's Natural Glow.  I've already been using both this spring until I can get to the beach more!

Do you have a favorite self tanner?  Do share.  Thanks so much for reading and don't forget to enter the Rumor Boutique clutch giveaway - XO

Jus by Julie

I've been amazed with the feedback from my DIY BluePrintCleanse post this summer, so when Jus by Julie offered to let me try their three-day cleanse, you know I was onboard.  I thought this would be perfect after my 12-day eating spree in Chicago.

This Brooklyn-based juice company founded by nutritionist Julie Maleh specializes in blended juices and cleanses.  The blended process is different from most cold-pressed juices in that blended contains the whole fruit and vegetable in order to retain all the natural vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and fiber present in the natural product.

Jus by Julie has only been around for a little over two years, but I think this company will be around for quite some time.

- my personal fave -

- my second favorite! -

I loved that this juice cleanse was fresh, filling and best of all - all three days weren't filled with the exact same six juices.  The morning glory and sweet spin green juices remained the same with some variation on the remaining three.  When I didn't drink water in between juices I got hungry, but other than that I had plenty of energy, could work and concentrate just fine and felt lighter and less bloated than I usually do.  If you give it a try, let me know what you think!

A big thank you to the gals at Jus by Julie for allowing me to review their delicious and nutritious cleanse.  Thank y'all so much for reading and don't forget to enter the Rumor Boutique clutch giveaway - XO -
