Plaid wrap for National Wear Red Day

The first Friday in February is National Wear Red Day for women. It’s a day to promote heart health awareness by simply wearing this bold color. Today I am all cozy in a plaid wrap for National Wear Red Day. Keep reading to see my full outfit details plus my curated picks!

Heart health is the theme for February. Not only is it the month of love (Valentine’s Day) but it is also national heart health awareness month. To kick it off, the first Friday in February is always “National Wear Red Day”. Look forward for heart healthy workouts and recipes coming to the blog this month. If you’re local, pop in to my yoga class that the flow focus this month will be on heart openers! Make sure you check out some of my posts from last year too; like this heart centered cardio work out!

Disclaimer, I took these photos before there #PolarVortex2019 and snow on the ground; but I am currently wearing this outfit! My wrap is from a fall Ellie box. I love that it is reversible! It is super warm, it’s basically like wearing a blanket.

I am pairing it with black leggings- that are actually Reebok (if you look closely you can see their logo on my hip) and a plain white tee. My socks are from Costco- I’m not even sure the brand but they are so super warm. Probably not on the shelves anymore, but come next November be on the look out!

What I am most excited to link up today are the Hunter Boots I’m wearing. They are the Chelsea and depending on your size you can snag them for under $80 like I did! I’ve got them linked up in my product widget below. Call me basic but I really wanted a pair of Hunters. I ended going with the Chelsea, which is the ankle boot style and I’m so glad I did. I have a pair of Coach tall rain boots that are a decade old (yikes, but they are still in excellent condition) but I don’t find the tall boots to be that practical. I am getting more use out of the ankle boot. Being only are they all black (my Coach are white with pastel C’s) they are easy to throw on when the ground is wet. Paired with those thick socks and they are perfect for midwest winters!

My wrap is Balance Collection and I’m not able to find any exact match to it- you can still order up the past collection though on Ellie! If you don’t want to get the best activewear subscription box I’ve linked up some similar wraps. Like this plaid one from Loft and this Vince Camuto wrap.

Also, I want to share with you how I have this wrap secured. I didn’t take any photos so I’ll talk you through it. Basically, I’ve taken the ends of the wrap and tied it together behind my back with hair tie. It’s that simple! You can also knot it, but I find that to be too bulky.

In addition, I added some super cute red tops that are on sale in my product widget! These would be perfect for today or Valentine’s Day. I really love this blouse and kinda want to order up this cardigan. Everything I have from Cuddle Dud is so soft! This hoodie is super cute too! Reminds me of the one I wore to see the Harlem Globetrotters!

Earrings are handmade by me; do you love the simple geometric like I do?

LC Bell Sleeve Tee

Super soft cotton and dramatic sleeves- this LC bell sleeve tee is a must buy this season! Kohl’s Instagram got me after a few post of Lauren Conrad in this crew neck bell sleeve top for her cozy fall collection. Her posts were always so cozy and who isn’t a fan of cozy in the chillier months? I threw this dramatic sleeve crew tee on with a pair of AG Prima cigarette pant, oversized plaid affinity scarf and loafers for an afternoon at the outlet mall. Need to embrace the few days of the season that it is warm enough […]

Plaid + Leo: A Winning Fall Combo

If you are from the Midwest you probably own a plaid shirt (or five). Instead of pairing with your favorite plain boots trying mixing up the patterns with a leopard print shoe! Plaid + Leo is a winning fall combo! Hey babes! Look- it’s a style post! The first one since April. {covers face} In all fairness I spent 95% of summer in either a bathing suit or workout clothes so really, not much was missed. Here we are though in October and fall is in full foliage. California has palm trees, Ohio has corn fields. You can’t help but […]

Hello, are You there?

Heey, winter- you have overstayed your welcome. For real, I would be okay if you never made another apperance for the rest of this calender year. I never thought I’d miss my allergy inducing good friend Spring as much as I do right about now. Hello, are you there spring?  The trees are blooming but we are only receving a tease of beautiful sunny days. We want to throw our booties to the back of the closet and show some skin. This weekend was a pleasant weekend and we were able to spend most of it outside! Friday we went […]

Gingham 3 Ways

The school year started today for my district. And while summer break might be over for the kids, I’m holding on to the next few weeks! Before we break out the sweaters and booties (and I can’t WAIT for that! Fall. Is. My. Favorite.) I’ve have three ways to wear gingham that are perfect for the end of summer. Scroll down to see my looks!    Gingham is one of my favorite plaids! It’s great in all the colors but black and white is just so classic and stylish. Wear it to work or wear it to play- black and […]

Current Trend Love: The Romper Maxi

Hope ya’ll are having a wonderful weekend! I’m super pumped to spend some time with my bestie who is in town! I love rompers. I love maxis. And I definitely love this maxi romper! Have you seen these this season? They are so super fun! I purchased this fun dress a few months back in anticipation for summer and let me tell you, it’s been on repeat! It’s so easy to throw on with gladiator sandals or dress it up a bit more with some block heels. I wore it out for a date night with the hubs. I wore […]
