Lust List: Monday-spiration

Lately I have been craving my old body back like you wouldn’t believe. I want to push myself in a sweaty muscle-aching work out. I want to feel what it’s like to sleep on my stomach or flop around trying to get comfortable without the effort of a thousand careful ninjas. I want to spontaneously online shop for the perfect oh-my-gosh-I-just-can’t-believe-how-beautiful-this-is jacket/skirt/blouse. And I don’t want it to have a stretchy panel. I want to climb hills and stairs without huffing and puffing. And I want to feel fabulous. Like really really fabulous. Because even though there are days where I do feel pulled together and confident as a big pregnant lady – there is no denying a lack of FABULOUSNESS due to functionality. I’m totally ok with it, there is a time and a place for everything! I just want it back.

So today I’m using the power of pinterest to share some of my lusty inspirations. Oh man… I cannot WAIT to wear something with a fitted waist, or a smart jacket that closes! What are your lusty inspirations lately? If you have a minute – leave me a link in the comments. I am always looking for more reasons to fashion-drool on my keyboard.

This is quite possibly over the top, but whatever. It's so far beyond a bathrobe and sweatpants I would wear this doozy to work if I could. Source.

Happy Monday everyone! I raise my 700th glass of water to toast a little day-dreaming and a lot of fabulous.

  1. Target has those sweater looking leggings! I saw them, stared at them for a minute thinking “could i pull those off?”, and then gave up and kept walking. Hahaha! GO GET THEM and fold them up and hide them in a tiny space for post baby 🙂 Xoxo.

  2. But Lauren your belly is super cute, and you might feel huge, but you don’t look huge, you still look fit, huge belly and all, because your bump is very clearly outlined and your face looks the same. I loved that pic of you on Christmas Eve with a stripey long sweater while stylefully drinking from a mug. BTW, given how pregnancy’s been kind of hard on you, you should totally throw yourself a party (maybe Kamel can organize it hint hint) and be a super chic pregnant lady like this:

    You asked for it so here goes my lust style inspiration / list of obsessions:

    This dress I actually own. I got it last Spring for my brother’s November wedding (it’s always sunny in Mexico) . It just made me feel so sexy. And the colors are my fave.

    And while we’re talking weddings and lacy necklines I am in love with this dress (not sure if it’d look good on me though I feel I would look like a giant bell or something)

    Oh and shoes, I am in love with this:

    BTW, judging by the dresses you posted you might want to check Karen Millen (and they are on sale now) they have chic dresses with fancy silhouettes like the dresses you posted.

    1. And doesn’t it seem doable? I feel like that is the best part. I don’t feel like it’s so out of my reach to find these pieces are something similar and ba-bam. Chic weekend, chic travel, chic chic comfy chic.

  3. Duuuude those printed pants are KILLER! I’ve been so intrigued by printed jeans recently…want to find a cheap(ish) pair so I can take the plunge.

    1. i have heard tell of some awesome patterned jean/pant thingies at H&M. A lady at work was wearing burgundy pants with a very subtle print and they looked AWESOME.

  4. Oh man, you are aware that the “i wish i owned these clothes” game is dangerous, right? Imma play anyway 🙂

    I would wear this to work ALWAYS:

    I want this bag- it looks perfect for day to day use!

    These would make my work outfits look so much more fun:

    If anyone can track every element of this outfit down, I’d buy it immediately:

    A few more trips to the gym, and maybe I could pull these pants off 🙂

    and this sums up what I wish my life was like: glam, fun, cheerful, ruffly, and a little bit bad-ass:
