I’ve worn a lot of pants in my life. From sequins to fringe, bell bottoms to boyfriends, and leather to custom painted (these really exist – TWO pairs), I’ve tried just about every style. However, this new trend is by far my favorite. Not only do these pants have the holy grail of all clothing items – pockets (isn’t it the absolute worst when pants psych you out with the itlaysflatterbecauseitdoesnthavearealpocket thing?), they have everything else you could ever want. A wild print, plus eye-catching neons, and a lightweight fabric so moveable that I may just wear them daily. And to bed. And back to work again. No shame.

To top it off? A STRETCHY WAISTBAND! 

If you are a donut-loving, pizza-eating, cookies-n-cream craving gal like me, you’ll appreciate a pair of pants that are not just stylish, but can be worn on the most delicious of Thanksgiving Days. After my healthy eating kick (no, I’m not the resolution type – but the holidays are too busy to take proper care of myself), I’m already looking forward to that glorious day when I can pig out. Until then, you’ll be seeing me pretend to be sporty in these fancy joggers and sweating like Richard Simmons in the gym downstairs! But most definitely not both at once. That just wouldn’t be right!

As we were leaving for the Bahamas, I intended to come home with no less than seven blog posts. If it had been a New Year’s resolution, I would have epically failed. If you know me at all, you should know that I am NEVER on time when it comes to being ready – particularly when I think there might be a bit of leeway. Sure, I can make it to all business meetings or other appointments, but from dinners to basketball games, I am always late. Hence: “I’ll be ready in five minutes.”

On one of the seven days we were on vacation, these photos come from the one night I was early. By early, I mean that dinner probably was set for 7:00 and Taylor told me it was at 6:30. If this is true, then after four years, he totally understands how I function! It was so humid that this hair-do became my staple, and now I’ve forgotten how to do anything else. What’s your easy-go-to-up-do?!

Western Conference that is.

T put our names on the season ticket holder list three years ago, essentially right after we started dating. I didn’t say anything, but in my head I was thinking “is this really that serious?” Guess it was! A few years back, Taylor bought me the jersey of my favorite player, James Harden. I adored that man, and have always loved an underdog. Even if he was being paid millions to be one. The following summer we were at dinner with his family, sister, and now brother-in-law, on the gorgeous patio at SW Steakhouse in Las Vegas. Then, tragedy struck. Knowing we followed the Thunder pretty closely, Luke made the comment that Harden had been traded. Not typically being one for the water works, I started crying hysterically at dinner. Couldn’t even finish my meal. And people – that is hands down, one of the top 3 steaks I’ve had in my life!

Since then, I haven’t been able to allow another jersey into my life, for fear of the NBA being in control of a potentially outdated wardrobe. However, Steven Adams (John Mayer’s look-a-like!)  is slowly sneaking into first place, for his devilish good looks, quite impressive ball skills, and that New Zealand accent that you could listen to all day. This time, I’ll wait until after the Thunder re-sign him though. No need to jinx the handsome fella! Until that day comes, when I can dress up a jersey, I’ll keep playing with the orange and blue color palette. What’s your go to Thunder wear?!
