What I’m Wearing Wednesday

I feel like my What I’m Wearing Wednesday posts lately reflect what I’m wearing  about 20% of the time.  Believe me, I love getting dressed up and I love putting outfits together, but let’s be real. The majority of the time I live in workout clothes so those are just as important to post because workout clothes can be fun too. I like getting new workout clothes. One, because I wear them every day and two, because if I’m wearing workout clothes it means I have to get my ass to the gym. Motivation!

Two years ago, I met this great couple down at the Crossfit games who own a Crossfit gym in the Sacramento area.  The husband, Charlie, was talking about this company he was starting that was based on thefairly  combination of caffeinating and lifting weights. Hence, the brand name Caffeine & Kilos. At the time it was just in the works, and now, two years later, his company had absolutely exploded in the Crossfit community and beyond. Charlie and Micha are such down to earth awesome people that I’m happy to see their success and happy to support their brand.  Plus I consider them fairly “local” since we’re both NorCal so it kind of feels like that whole shop small idea…and their stuff comes fast 😊

I have to admit that my husband was the first Morlock to sport C&K apparel in this relationship but I quickly jumped on his bandwagon. I love their stuff. The tanks are great and the muscle tees like the one I just got are super soft and flattering.  What I also like about their products is that their logo is simple and their colors are great.  I don’t like busy workout apparel. They keep it real and I appreciate that.

For reference I wear a size small.  So check out the Caffeine & Kilos website and support The Movement.

So this is what I’m wearing this Wednesday…

Oatmeal Apple Pie Yogurt

IMG_8449Well, this was a happy accident.  After 10 days off my macros and coming home to an empty fridge, I probably should have gotten back on track today, but I decided to just get after it the morning we left because, why not???  I’m a go getter and I have goals.  I had my fun on vacation and was ready to get back to a normal eating routine, so why wait another day?  But I didn’t have time to go to the store so I had to make do with whatever we had in the pantry and any leftover vacation food we brought home with us…which was basically nothing haha.

Easy Shredded Chicken Korean BBQ Bowls

My husband is a firefighter and works A LOT, especially in the summer time.  So that means I’m home alone for dinner a good chunk of the time.  But just because I’m eating solo, it doesn’t mean that my dinner’s have to be boring.  But a non-boring dinner also doesn’t mean it has to be complicated.  There are a few staples that I always keep in my fridge that are super healthy but extremely versatile.  I ALWAYS have rotisserie chicken breast on hand.  I buy one or two from Costco because they’re only $4.99 each and pull apart the breasts when I get home.  I keep the shredded chicken breasts for myself because the white meat has less fat and pull off the legs and wings and put them in a separate Tupperware for my husband to have for lunch or take to work – win/win situation for us both!  Depending on what I’m making, I will use the darker meat from the legs too, but when I’m eating on my own, my meals tend to be a little cleaner because I’m only feeding myself.  But again, clean doesn’t have to be flavorless!  Rotisserie chicken is perfect for ANYTHING.  It becomes whatever you need it to be.  That’s why it pairs so nicely with cauliflower rice, because there are so many different directions you can take it.

What I’m Wearing Wednesday

I’ve added a few new maxi skirts to my summer wardrobe.  You can’t go wrong with a maxi skirt.  I prefer a solid maxi to a printed one, but that’s just me.  My black go-to maxi is from Target but I just got this white one from Splendid that can either be worn as a maxi or a dress so it’s versatile.  I know white can get super dirty but it just looks so good with everything!  Especially in the summer!  I lovvvvvvve crisp white clothes on tan skin.  Nothing says summer more.  I like to keep my maxi skirts simple and fitted.  A hip and butt hugging silhouette that hangs straight down with not too much excess material is most flattering on my short and muscular frame.  What I also like about maxi skirts are that they can be dressed up or down.  They pair so well with racer back tanks or a breezy top.  Your accessories of choice are really what define the casual vs. fancier look you’re going for.  This skirt was moderately priced.  Obviously it ain’t a Target, but it’s not terrible and it’s not like it’ll be going out of style anytime soon, so that’s how I justified it!  Spledid clothing is kind of on the pricey side but they’re having a 50% off sale right now if you check out their website Here.  Their stuff is super light weight and comfy.  Perfect for summer time and goes with practically anything. I actually bought this skirt on Shopbop because the Splendid site didn’t carry it. I’m wearing the XS.  And if you end up getting one, just make sure you have a nude colored pair of low rise Hanky Panky thong underwear to go with it 🙂

So this is what I’m wearing this Wednesday…

Sweet and Spicy Grilled Drumsticks

DrumsticksIf the weather is warm, it means we are grilling something at my house.  Steak, chicken, vegetables…you name it, it’s on the grill.  Everything just tastes better when it comes from the BBQ, especially when it’s got great flavors behind it.  I’ve had these drumsticks in my freezer forever and needed to use them.  Drumsticks are one of those pieces of chicken that you kind of forget about.  Breasts and thighs are usually our go-to cuts for grilling, but then you grill the drumsticks and you’re like, “why don’t I do this more often?!”  They’re juicy and you get to eat them with your hands!

What I’m Wearing Wednesday

Since the 4th of July is fast approaching, and one of my all-time favorite holiday’s, I’ll be sporting some Americana apparel this week!  I consider myself pretty patriotic – I’m a high school U.S. History teacher in my real life – so this holiday means a lot to me.  It’s all about Family, Fun and most importantly Freedom.

So when June starts to wrap up and I start to see all the red, white and blue come into the stores I get a little excited.  I usually avoid all the cheesy sparkly Fourth of July type clothing, but I dig anything Americana, country or retro that I can rock this time of year.  And this tank that I found at Nordstrom’s a few weeks back totally fits my style.  I just can’t decide if I want to pair it with daisy dukes and wear my cowboy boots, or go with a white maxi skirt – maybe i’ll do both 🙂  Shorts during the day because it’s been hot as hell around here and skirt for the evening.  Win-win situation!
