My favorite leggings ever!

 Faux Leather Leggings: c/o Spanx | Vest: c/o Chic Wish | Sweater: Walmart $12! | Booties: BP | 
Clutch: Clare V. | Lips: MAC Faux 

I have a super amazing giveaway at the end of this post!!

I have NEVER been able to put a pair of faux leather leggings on my legs…ever. I can get them to my knees and that’s it. The trend is so cute and I have always been devistated that I couldn’t ever wear it. THIS pair completely changed that for me. Not only can I get them to sit on my waist, they flatter my muscual legs! 

They are double layered so they smooth your skin. They are high waisted to give you a smooth midsection. Spanx makes these amazing leggings! At first, I was hesitant that they would pull in wierd areas. Let me tell you, I feel like the best version of myself in these. I will be rocking these all season long!

I paired them with THIS $12 sweater that is an exact dupe for THIS one for $54! Layering it under my favorite fur vest made this look the perfect mix of contempoary and glam. I loved that this outfit was a little out of my comfort zone but was still completely me! Go try these leggings on, you will fall in love.

Healthy Me. [Ledbetter + Giveaway]

To enter the twin with giveaway with Ledbetter, go HERE!
 Tank: c/o Ledbetter | Leggings: Zella | Shoes: Nike | Headband: c/o LEDBETTER | Headphones: c/o Sudio  

I have loved Ledbetter headbands since I first discovered them in 2013! They just relaunched their companies workout gear and I couldn’t be more thrilled. They have the cutest workout gear designed by gals that know function and style are both necessary when working out. In celebration of the relaunch of their site, I am teaming up with Ledbetter for a giveaway! Go HERE to find all the details!! PS use code ‘Nicholle’ for free shipping on US orders over $30 (ends 10/14/16).

I love THIS Ledbetter tank. You can wear it tied on the side, like I have, or lose. They also have THIS tank that I am OBSESSED with. Maybe someday soon I will feel confident in my body to wear that one too. 

I have hopped back on the health train again. Let me tell you, it has been difficult. I had been dependent on Coke and sugar to sustain my energy through the day. Life is unfortunately super stressful right now. As I was talking to my mom about this fact, I realized that life will ALWAYS be stressful. I can’t keep using that as an excuse to not take my health seriously. Ledbetter is a great resource to plug into if you need guidance on a change for your body. They are an amazing company!

My mom and I both have been doing a modified  diet to cut my sugar cravings. The first 4 days were awful, just warning you. I didn’t realize how badly I was dependent on sugar. I am now doing lower carbs to try and keep my cravings at bay while keeping my metabolism fired up. I have since completed 3 weeks of this plan and I am feeling awesome! Although, I have fallen off the trail a little due to stress…again. 

I have added working out again, very lightly so I don’t tire myself out to the point where I can’t function in the rest of my life. I have also been doing the Teami 30 day detox and LOVE the results. The tea tastes amazing without anything added to it. Another product that is getting me through are these earbuds by Sudio! You can receive 15% off your order by using the code ‘topknotsandpearls’ at checkout!

All of this to say: I am going to start incorporating workout, recipes, and fitness apparel on Topknots and Pearls. I also want to stay transparent on my skin care regimen, this is why I have not edited my acne out of these photos. I hope that I can bring inspiration and transparency with all you lovelies!
