myFABfind: Taking Casual Friday to Casual Date Night

 

 

My office is VERY casual. I could wear jeans to work Monday through Friday if I wanted. I usually wear trousers or a skirt with a cami and jacket. My way of shaking things up in this environment is with a cute handbag and shoes. When I do wear jeans, it’s usually on a Friday and I never pair them with sneakers. I just can’t. 

Tonight I will be going to a comedy show with the hubs and will not have time to change if I want to get there on time in this DFW traffic. So today’s look must take me from very casual office to date night and I MUST be comfortable. 

  
myFABfind:  Last week I had to stop my Sam’s Club to pick up a cake for the office. While waiting on them to find our order, I stumbled across a table with Seven 7 brand jeans and tees. “How cute,” I thought. And the price tag was even cuter! The tee with the bling accent pocket was only $12. The bling accent pocket jeans…. $20! I could not believe it. And these jeans feel and fit soooooooo freaking good. I’m so glad I grabbed this set. 

  

I paired the set with these flirty Vince Camuto peep toe booties. These are from Macy’s and I think I caught them on sale for under $149. I threw on the beige jacket just to “office it up” for work, but I’m not sure about wearing it to the show tonight. I think I will carry it in just in case it’s chilly. I have no idea where I got it. I’m sure I was dirt cheap. I would guess that I paid $19.99 or LESS for it and probably from TJ Maxx or some place like that. 

  
To add a pop of color to all of that blue, I’m carrying a bag in my FABfave color… PINK of course! My blue gradient aviators are a must. Handbag: Dooney & Bourke (gift).  Aviators: Ray Ban, $150.

I think I did pretty well with the $32 ensemble and pieces that I already owned. I look presentable in a office where my co-workers are wearing jeans and sneakers and yet cute enough to go on my date to see comedian Lavell Crawford. Now I’m ready to get off from work. ūüėĀ Happy Friday!!

mrsFABreviews: Will Shakeology pass myFABtest?

  
For the past few months I have had representatives from various companies to ask me to try this, that, and the other. I have reviewed many types of products in the past and with so many offers, why not start again? 

Starting this month, I will test a product (every other month, possibly sooner) and post a review here on theFABexperience.com. The length of the test period will depend on the type of product. All products reviewed will be donated by the companies who ask me to review them (or that I bug to allow me to review themūüė≥). 

This month I will be testing vanilla Shakeology  protein powder whose slogan is, “The healthiest meal of the day.” Now I must disclaim that my sis, NurseFAB, is a Beachbody coach and I have several friends who are also coaches. That will NOT have a bearing on my final review. I don’t sell Shakeology and will give a clear, unbiased, and honest review. 

You may be wondering just how I will be testing this product? I plan to drink one shake for lunch or snack every day for 30 days starting today. I want to see how this shake makes me feel. Will it perk me up? Will it give me an energy boost? Will it be beneficial to my workouts? Nutrition wise, how does it compare to other brands that I have tried? What’s in it?  Will it curb my sugar cravings? That last one is HUGE for me, as I am a sweet-a-holic! I definitely inherited my dad’s sweet tooth. 

If you (or your company) have a product that you would like for me to test and review, email me at mrsFAB@theFABexperience.com. Results from this product test will be posted here next month!
