I am obsessed with all things sheer. I died when when Gwen Stefani wore this sheer jumpsuit. I first saw the pictures back in April; I loved it so much then and still think it's great. Lea Michelle just wore a sheer dress to an event this month. The hotpants/long maxi dress together is so much fun, I cannot get enough.
I haven't found a dress like any of these but have been doing a lot of sheet blouses with a cute bra underneath. It is the easy(cheap) version of this trend.

I look ridiculous in this picture. It was after Buster's show in NC, wearing his vest.

So I recently starting doing Bikram (hot) Yoga aaaaaand I love it! I have always been a gym rat and would work out for hours at a time but lately it's all changed. My body has really responded to these sessions and it is a great way to relax and release stress, toxins, tensions and flush your internal organs. I found a studio close to home and was able to purchase a month pass at the introductory rate. The best part is there are late night classes that work with my schedule.
The typical bikram uniform is minimal-men wear a pair of shorts and women wear shorts and a sports bra. Luckily I didn't feel the need to go crazy and purchase everything relating to the sport right away like I usually do including new outfits, accessories and gear. The studio does require you to bring a mat and towel every time so I had to improvise for a short time. For the first week I was able to rent a mat for $2 per class which was helpful. I planned to borrow my mom's mat but ended up finding one on eBay at a great price. It was used of course so I was worried about the condition of it but when I opened the package, I was pleasantly surprised. Looking at new mats from brands like Lululemon and Prana, I was shocked that some were selling for up to $70-80!! With shipping, mine was under $25. I also bought a useroo towel which I probably didn't need but I am glad I did. The room gets so hot and your body is working surprisingly hard, it is easy to sweat out what feels like gallons. A thick yoga towel is a good idea and they are made to fit the length of the mat perfectly. I found a great Prana towel on eBay as well for under $30 with shipping. It is a wonderful feeling every time I leave class. I highly recommend checking out a studio where you can by individual classes to try it out or an introductory rate.
Over Labor Day weekend I took a trip down south to visit my brother and his fiance Arin. It was a great time filled with food, laughter, music and driving!!! We enjoyed time in Raleigh, Fayetteville and Winston-Salem. They drove SO much and I am grateful they enjoyed it (almost) as much as I did. I saw one of the free shows during this trip as well.
I was able to use my work account for internet on the plane! Didn't have to pay for this awesome service, wooohoo! We checked out future wedding site, Fort Bragg (where Brennan spends his work hours with Blackhawks, parachutes and machine guns), played shuffleboard at Draft in Raleigh and visited a Tattoo Museum. It was such a great trip, I cannot wait to go back for their wedding!!! xo
I am freaked out by birds so this was all new for me! As you can see by my expression, I was nervous.
I also ate horribly, not vegan at all! But it was worth trying some southern foods. Everything at Draft was amazingly delicious and so bad for you. Bro and Arin took us to their fav BBQ spot in Fayetteville, Cape Fear BBQ. It was pretty dang good. As I now say: When in Rome...
