Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY to you!

I can’t believe Mal’s spring vacation is over just like that. I feel like we were just celebrating the start of it. We really didn’t do all that much this week, so HOW does that happened? Oh, well. Summer vacation is coming soon, right? Honestly, I don’t know… spring even seems a zillion years away. Is it freezing where you are? As long as there’s not snow, I’m happy! 🙂 So, it’s Friday and you know what that means: It’s time for the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

Naked and Afraid – Ok, I’m a little behind on this one, but I caught an episode on the plane ride home from Atlanta, and I’m obsessed. That show is crazy. Mal thinks it’s all fake, but I’m so impressed with these people – mostly because I’d never survive naked in the wilderness!

Striped button-shoulder turtleneck – I’m loving the stripes lately! 🙂 I love this cozy top, which comes in other colors and is on sale right now – perfect for cool summer nights!

Three-time cancer survivor finishes Boston Marathon 13 hours after start – This is SUCH an amazing story!

Eyelet-back sweatshirt – Another J.Crew favorite! How amazing is that back of this sweatshirt? I’m obsessed. It also comes in white and navy.

Can you still eat intuitively while meal planning? – This is such a great blog post from one of our RDs at DTFN! “Meal planning with some weekly prep is the only way to consistently have a positive outlook on your diet. That might sound extreme, but let me explain! Whether you are trying to eat more and recover from a restrictive mindset, reign in your portion sizes and make healthier choices, or just save time, having good options available when you are hungry is key.” Ashley makes so many great points about combining the best of both worlds with meal planning and intuitive eating – be check out her full blog post!

Fran, Karen, Annie, Diane, Joy & Claire Tank – GGW fans! Check out their new tank tops! LOVVVE! I already own one, but if you love the podcast, I highly recommend having one in your wardrobe, too. It makes me happy every time I wear it! 🙂

Athleta Stripe Modern Metro Shortie – I’m working on a blog post called “Shorts that Don’t Suck,” and I just purchased these to add to the round-up. Super cute, right? And they look so comfortable. Athleta FTW!

  1. I love stripes, love love love. I have a very clear memory from years ago of buying jeans from a Levi’s store while I was wearing a striped shirt… The cashier told me loves that stripes were making a comeback and I was horrified because I didn’t know they needed to make a comeback! I quickly got over the horror because trust me, I was probably making a lot worse fashion statements at the time, haha.

  2. OMG can you please add some athletic “style” (you know pull on comfy) shorts to your write up on “shorts that don’t suck” I love wearing comfy shorts in the summer when just bumming around the house or doing errands, but TRUE running shorts are a little short! I’m not talking about old lady knee length, just non but cheek showing shorts.

  3. I am a big fan of stripes! My sister has actually made fun of me because I go through stages when it seems like every top I wear has stripes. haha

  4. I have a few items with stripes that I love it depends on the width of the stripe and how it hits me. I’m a bit on the busty side and some stripes just make me look really wide and/or even bustier neither of which is a good thing. but that striped shirt looks fantastic on you. Hope you enjoy your last few days of spring break.

  5. So excited for your shorts post! I’m a pretty petite person but obviously do not have a thigh gap, due to thighs but also narrowly-set hips. SO MUCH RIDING UP! Spandex long shorts or capris isn’t always optimal. Banking on you to include some running shorts for those of us with athletic butts and things 🙂

  6. I’m not a fan of stripes at all…but I’m really looking forward to your post on shorts! I’m always looking for decent workout/leisure clothes 🙂
    Have a great weekend!

  7. I don’t mind stripes. I haven’t got many in my closet. I am more of a polkadot girl.
    I am not a big fan of turtlenecks, but I am large chested and find they make me feel self conscious.
    I have so much trouble finding shorts I like. I have thighs that touch, so they always ride up, and if I buy the longer legs, they don’t seem to look very attractive. Although on one of those fashion makeover shows, they totally despised shorts. I also seem to find so many short shorts, I really don’t want cheekies in outerwear. lol

  8. So so excited for your shorts that don’t suck post. Since doing CrossFit I can’t find anything that fits my butt or legs without riding up the crotch. I feel too old for 3 inch shirts but don’t always love the bagginess if the 5 inch.

  9. My husband and I love make and afraid!! One of the most awesome episodes is during naked and afraid XL with huge electric eels!! It’s so crazy! Highly recommend you check it out.

    For me it’s hot and miss with stripes, some looks very flattering but others make me look so old and frumpy!
