Fitness Find: Rollerskating

Get out your neon and fanny packs!  The weather is getting warm and I'm looking for all kinds of ways to enjoy the outdoors and mix up my workouts!  Sooo I'm back in the 80s with one of my favorite childhood past-times... rollerskating! 

I used to spend hours on my skates... up and down the driveway, into the street, up and down my neighbor's driveways.  I loved it.  And I still do.  So last year I decided that it had been way too long since I owned a pair.  It's time to bust them out!

Chris had a day off... it was sunny and warm... I wanted to get out of the house and be ACTIVE... enter rollerskating in the park!  This can seriously be an amazing workout!  It helps with your balance and coordination, and you really feel muscle toning in your legs and butt!  And of course, it's fabulous cardio!  Mr. Wilbur got a pretty good workout too!  I was surprised how much he enjoyed it.  I definitely plan to spend more sassy spring days rollin' down the sidewalk ;-)

What I Wore: Main Street Arts Festival

Hey y'all!! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was BUSY!  Chris and I enjoyed two days of the Fort Worth Main Street Arts Festival!  It was fabulous!! We had a really great couple of days full of art, music, craft beer and fried foods.

The weather was sunny and HOT! I was surprised at how warm it was!  I tried to keep my outfits cool and comfy... but that doesn't always mean teeny shorts and a tank.  The older you get, the more you start to plan outfits around protecting your skin.  I'm over and done with burning my skin and trying to get a golden brown tan.  Guess what? I'm 30 and that means SPF 50 and covering my body!! mom would be so proud! 

So here's a little taste of my outfits from the festival! Please note it was ridiculously windy so I have crazy hair in some of them... and I'm laughing... a lot! :-)

{Day 2}
My apologies for Day 2 pics being a little blurry!  That was an experimentation gone wrong ;-) We tried to take a walk away from the crowds and catch the fading light during the sunset... but the lighting just didn't work... we won't being doing that again! 
This picture turned out to be my favorite.  I was caught off guard but I think it shows how much I love our local festivals and being outdoors in downtown Fort Worth!  Chris and I staked out shady seating right next to the craft beer tent and enjoyed Ugly Pugs all day long! 

These outfits include some of my very favorite items I've acquired over the last few years.  Upon searching for them, I've found that some are not available anymore... like my amazing yellow linen pants! Booooo!!! So, I've done my best to help you shop the look with some similar items!! {see below} Also, the two leather purses featured will be detailed in an upcoming post! Stay tuned!
