I’m unsure why people are still insisting on trying to tell me that they don’t like my fashion posts. I don’t like pictures of people’s children taking a dump on the potty for the first time, but I do not tell them that. I mean, they’re children will hate them for it later so what’s the point in posting my own frustration? But since these people’s days have been so rattled by my lululemon scarf, I kindly tell them that they are an idiot and should be consumed more in their own life than mine, but in a very kind, classy way. You know, because I’m so classy. But what upsets me the most, other than poopy children, is that people are never kind enough to write back. They voice their opinion but are suddenly startled when I lay the heat down. What does that even mean? Who knows. It just means they are the worst kind of humans. Stick up for yourselves, people. I just back handed your face, serve it back!

So I pretty much want to wear fake lashes every day of my life. Like, so bad. They are so great. And make my little beady animal eyes look much larger. It’s a miraculous lie. Below are my fake lashes. They say nice to meet you. This is an outfit I wore to Butterjoint in Pittsburgh after cooking too many recipes in a week. This dress is the most comfortable dress ever. And it’s longer so it’s more conservative for you conservative folk out there. I’m obviously not usually one of those people.


{ Red and White Shift Dress from Pink’s Boutique for $40 (this dress goes down to right above the knee and is completely long sleeve) | Black Vegan Leather Jacket found at Inspyre Boutique | Beige Booties from 2010 from TJ Maxx for $50 (ps one of my favorite pair of shoes of.all.time.) – here is a similar pair | Necklace from Pink’s Boutique for $20 }

This outfit was one of my casual outfits I wore in Pittsburgh when we decided to do a little night shopping in Monroeville. I think it was Monroeville. I really never know where I am out there, but I bought some workout clothes at the Gap! Love their stuff! Anywho, if you haven’t noticed, I REALLY love scarfs. Especially vinyasa scarfs. They are the best from fall into winter.


White Ashby Tank from Splits59 for $45 | Astrid Saturn Back Pullover from Splits59 for $86 | Vinyasa Scarf French Terry from Lululemon for $58 | Flying Monkey Jeans found at Inspyre Boutique | Dolce Vita leopard flats found at Nordstrom Rack }

This outfit means nothing to you, BUT TO ME it was a super exciting outfit because it was the outfit I was wearing on my way home back to Colorado. So it was a travel outfit. I wore a pair of booties hoping my suitcase would miraculously weigh less than 50 pounds. It still didn’t, it was 53 pounds. So I ended up carrying my straightener and curling iron around the airport and while flying. Such fun.


{ Beige and White Lace Top from Pink’s Boutique for $35 |  Target Junior’s Camo Jacket for $40 | Flying Monkey Jeans Jeans from Insypre Boutique for $50 by – similar Flying Monkey pair | Taupe of Your Life Booties from Modcloth now $34 | Stone Drop Necklace in Black by Stitch and Stone for $20 | Scarf from Target for $15 }

Random outfit day in Pittsburgh! These pants are seriously the most comfortable ever. I really wish I could find them online for you, but I’ll keep looking because you deserve to find them. It’s hard to see in the pics but they kind of puff out in the hips which is a look I personally love. Not everyone loves making their hips look larger, but I kind of dig it. I’m weird like that.

Black Vegan Leather Jacket found at Inspyre Boutique | Leopard Print Scarf found at Inspyre Boutique | Light beige t-shirt from Buffalo Exchange for $10 | Blue Pants from Paper Doll Boutique in San Diego for $40 | Beige Booties: Target for $35.00 (last season –BUT I FOUND THEM HERE!) }

Last but not least, another casual and comfy fall outfit. Yet ANOTHER vinyasa scarf. Why am I so obsessed with scarfs?  People keep asking me why I wear my vinyasa scarf. Here’s the deal: I have no idea. I wrap it, fluff it, pull at it and hope that it looks natural. There’s just no method to my madness.

IMG_0820 { Dark grey shirt from Hailee Grace for $35 | Black and Blue Vinyasa Scarf from Lululemon for $58 | STS Blue Destroyed Slim Boyfriend Jeans, in white for $54 in the Juniors of Nordstrom – similar pair here and hereDolce Vita leopard flats from Nordstrom Rack for $40 }

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. You look great. Its fun to see outfit posts but your blog is so much more which is lovely. Thing is, the people who leave nasty comments says so much more about them than it ever does about you. Keep going x

  2. Julie.. Would you say the inspire leather jacket is true to size? I want to order one but I’m torn between sizes..

  3. I love your fashion posts, your blog and your attitude cracks me up. Some day when I’m grown up (I’m 52), I’m going to have a blog and say whatever I want too!

  4. Oh my god you’re effing hilarious. I wasn’t that into your blog until I realized how mean people were and how much of their crap you don’t take. Now I love it for the snark. The rest is good too ;). Thanks for not being a sell out. I wish I was a little more bold like you.

  5. I don’t care who doesn’t like your Fashion Friday posts because I LOVE them!!! Keep saying F you to those haters!!
    Side note: I also hate seeing people’s children on the potty or with food in their face.

  6. I love your fashion posts please keep them up! What I really like about them is your not wearing some $800 dollar jacket that no one could afford and you shop at normal places like Target and TJ Maxx. I look forward to them every Friday :).

  7. I love fashion fridays! There’s something very real about a real person with real body issues putting on real clothes from real stores and sharing it with the world. Keep it up!

  8. I think your fashion fridays are great. I admire people who put themselves out there…some people are just mean..if you don’t have anything nice to say..why say anything at all?

  9. i am falling in love with you in a completely heterosexual way! We could be the same person. Quick question, do you apply your false eyelashes or did you have them don? If so, where’d you go? I’m a Denver girl too!

  10. I have been following your blog for awhile.. I love your fashion posts. The workouts and the things you eat along with the recipes are great. You look amazing. Forget the people that post dumb stuff I mean really just don’t read your blog. It is your blog to do with what you want. So keep on posting all that you do.. I know lots of us enjoy it..

  11. I love reading your fashion Friday posts and adore your casual style. You shop at two of my favorite places… Target and Nordstrom Rack. Keep them coming!

  12. People are ridiculously entitled. Your blog belongs to YOU and you get to do whatever you want with it!

    I love your Fashion Friday posts. Get it girl!

  13. I always look fwd to these posts and they have become my favorite posts…People are weird and mean and have nothing better to do with their lives than try to make other people miserable too…Whatever!

  14. Semi-random question: how did you go about finding someone to do fashion photos for you? I’d love to use some kind of blog photog from time to time but don’t quite know how to navigate that. Do you just have photog friends whose arm you twist? My bf gets grumpy when I recruit him for photog duties. (Lame.)

    ALSO: fake eyelashes are seriously the best. I would also wear them every day except the glue gets itchy so I can only handle it for a few hours before I want to claw my eyeballs out–not a good look. I used to have eyelashes that literally would touch the bottom of my eyebrows when my eyes were open and they were AMAAAAZE. And they only cost me $3, while the ones I spent $15 on sucked. Anyway, carry on.

    1. Well, the pics that were taken from someone else are done by my friends bill and hayley out in Pittsburgh. I haven’t been able to find anyone to do it during the day while I work from home in Colorado, but hopefully that changes. My boyfriend doesn’t like it much either lol.

  15. I love everything about your blog. Friday mornings I look forward to drinking my coffee at work and checking everything out. I purchased some leopard flats at Target, and I can’t believe the amount of compliments I get on them! Thank you for doing what you do!!

  16. Whatever, I love these posts, and your fake lashes, and vinyasa scarves.

    When I see your fashion posts, I think “Oh, she looks good, and that is affordable. I could do something like this.” It gives me hope that maybe (MAYBE) one day I will be sort of fashionable. 🙂

  17. I look forward to your Fashion Fridays too. I love how you put random pieces together and it looks like it totally belongs. I like scarves on other people. I hate them on me….I feel too confined and need to set my neck free. Mean people suck and if they can’t respond to your comeback then it’s just a random person who has nothing better to do than suck.

  18. Juli, you have the best attitude towards all the people who apparently have nothing better to do all day than hate on people they’ve never met.

    Your blog has been a favorite of mine for a while now – first you showed us how to cook paleo treats that don’t taste like cardboard, and now you’re going a step further with fashion and workout tips. You rock!

  19. I dig the fashion posts but I don’t dig reading about haters and negative attitude. Its getting to the point that every blog post is bitching about haters. I get it, they’re assholes and I don’t blame you for how feel. in no way do I think your feelings and opinions are wrong. But as a reader it’s very tiring to just constant negativity and complaining in every post. Theyve dragged you down to their level, to the point your blog is no longer enjoyable to read.for me anyway. And i think that’s sad. 🙁 and lest you think this is just another attack I left my real name and did not hide behind a veil of anonymity

    1. That’s so true. I’ve dropped other blogs from my FB feed cuz the bloggers were so consumed with all the haters and let it affect them. Juli, be true to yourself! I love how positive you are. Just ignore them. Its gotta be difficult to be famous and get anonymous haters on you but be like Taylor swift and shake it off. 😉

      1. I agree with you both…haters are just going to hate. Ignore them because the statistics on your comments say that people love the fashion. So, keep it rolling! I find it inspirational and beneficial at the same time…if I would commit to taking better care of myself through a dedicated diet then I would feel more confident and more than likely dress better!
        Thanks for all you do for your readers!

  20. I like your fashion posts – please keep them coming.
    And I’m impressed with your ability to wear scarves. I’m still working on getting it right!

  21. Hello Juli! I’m one of those people who doesn’t like the fashion posts, but I’ve never left a comment saying so because, well, it’s non of my business and you should do as you please with your blog. I love fashion and I follow a lot of fashion blogs, but I think i don’t like fashion friday here because I got so used to finding yummy food, that the whole fashion thing kinda makes me feel like it has nothing to do with anything about what the blog is about, but then again, it’s not my call to say what YOUR blog is about. I believe people need to stop being so rude and telling you (or anyone, for that matter) what to do or not do.

    That said… you do dress really nice.

  22. I love your posts… all of em.. as many of the girls here said.. the ones who don’t are not happy themselves and want to share their unhappiness.. but we don’t want to partake!!!

  23. It boggles my mind that anyone would take the time to say anything negative on someone’s blog. If you don’t like it, move the F#@* on!

    You are gorgeous and have great style, but hey, that’s just my opinion!

  24. The internet gives people the ability to be the absolute worst–because they can say things(things they’d never say to your face) anonymously. Louis CK has some great commentary on this!

  25. I love the leather jacket with the cheetah print scarf. And the blue pants and yellow clutch are nice little “surprise” pops of color! Very nice! I like that your post is well-rounded with fashion, fitness, and good recipes. 🙂

  26. I love your fashion posts…and generally all posts. I’m glad you don’t have a kid so I don’t need to hear about annoying child-related things.

  27. Someone else may have already commented on this, but I am lazy and didn’t read them all. Anyway if you like the lashes you should look into going to get individual ones done. They get glued to each real lash and stay on till that lash falls out naturally, mine last about a month. It’s awesome to have them 24/7 and they aren’t irritating at all

  28. i love your fashion posts! It’s a great way for me to find outfit ideas 🙂 Keep posting!!!!

    I’m totally digging scarves too 🙂

  29. I like your fashion posts but I like food posts better and WOD posts. Btw, if you love fake lashes, try those semi-permanent lashes!!! If I were single and didn’t have a kid and cared a lot about looking attractive to others, I would totally invest in them cuz it looks great and easy.

  30. Fashion Fridays! Keep ’em coming! So glad you addressed the eyelashes, since I was having major lash envy. I had the extensions done and my feeling is unless you can go every 2 weeks and get them “filled” it’s really not worth it. Not in my stay-at-home-mom-part-time-fitness-trainer budget. AND yes it does destroy your natural lashes for a while after the fact. DAMN eyelashes, why can’t we all just have fabulous natural lashes! 😉

  31. I love your fashion post! It gives me ideas for new cute outfits. 🙂 Have you ever had lash extensions they are amazing! Yes they are a little spendy but they hold up even through the sweeties wod!!! Who doesn’t want fabulous lashes while doing crossfit and any other time! Love your blog big time!

  32. I love the fashion posts! I think its been fun to see your blog evolve, and if people only want to come to the blog for recipes, then they can click on whatever they are looking for at the top (or buy a cookbook). I also think Mindy Kaling should you invite you to be a writer on the show… 🙂

  33. I have to admit, you are right when you say you are weird for liking pants that add more volume to your hips. But, on you it works, so that’s cool – we should wear what works for us. However, I have to say that I LOVE that outfit – I love a bright pant with a variety of neutrals (even if I choose a rather more, ahem, streamlined pant….).

    I saw a few comments from people about finding a photographer – you could use a timer? I assume you are currently using your smart-phone (about which I know nothing, being the sheepish owner of a dumb-phone) so I assume it has no timer capacity. However, even your totally boring average point-and-shoot will have a reasonable timer, then you can take pictures of yourself anywhere you can find a flat surface to prop it on. Because, I would offer to take your pictures, but I’m assuming you don’t want to come all the way to CT for that….

    Anywho, keep it up, I love the fashion friday posts no matter how you do them!

  34. Juli, your post made me laugh. I initially grumbled in my head when you started the fashion posts, mainly because it is not my thing, but you look so happy and have great skills, so that’s my problem. It’s your blog, do what you love!

  35. People always hate! They’re probably just mad that they won’t look as good as you in these clothes. 🙂 Anyway – I love your fashion posts, except for the fact that it makes me have fall/winter envy since I’m stuck here in Florida! (ok.. maybe stuck is the wrong word… it’s pretty awesome to have warm weather year round!) Love the scarves and all the outfits. These are my fave posts behind the food posts because.. well.. food.

  36. Ya’ know what’s worse than a douche-bag bully? A faceless douche-bag internet bully that leaves coward comments about your blog posts then doesn’t have the balls to respond….Actually, after some reflection, bullies aren’t much for responses in either case. They are ugly on the inside.

    I love your fashion posts, they make you more human to me. You have awesome affordable taste that is approachable and really well put together–and so often at a price point that’s achievable. Rock on Juli.

    I love your blog, your funny, and your FANTASTIC fashion. GFY Bullies.

  37. PaleOMG. I just found your blog and love it. I have decided a more paleo-like lifestyle. I saw you also enjoy fashion which is also my passion (I should write poetry!) I personally dealt with “haters” on YELP today so I know what you mean about laying the heat down.

    Anyway, I own a consignment shop so I’m all about affordable fashion. If you travel again to Pittsburgh my BFF also has a great store an your sense of humor/style/eating. And of course if you’re ever in Dayton I’d love to have you visit my store.

    Keep it up. Your blog alone will keep me on track to a new and healthier lifestyle.

  38. There’s definitely no reason for people to be upset about your fashion posts. It’s your blog! You can do what you want! Personally, I follow you for the recipes, so I mostly skim past the fashion (except if it’s an especially cute IG picture, let’s be honest). Does it upset me though? Pshaw! I have better things to do with my time than pick on what makes other people happy.

  39. WHAT?! That is so rude of people to say to you. I absolutely LOVE your Fashion Friday posts and look forward to them. You’ve even got me to Sole Society for some cute boots. Keep doing what you are doing and being you!

  40. Being an accessory stylist with Premier Designs Jewelry myself, I LOVE your fashion posts! They are super fun and you are showing awesome and affordable trend. I’m glad you wear scarves. I love them too! I’d like to see you add more jewelry to those scarves – a necklace tied or twisted in or a fun fashion pin. Or use the scarf to frame an awesome statement necklace. Accessories are like the icing on our cake! It takes us from dull to delicious! Keep those Fashion Fridays posts coming!
