Slack

I am learning blogging lessons left and right these days.  I didn't have a photographer for an outfit picture and I don't have any back up pictures, yet!  Lesson learned!  Sorry for the lack of outfit post:( But, a few things:

ONE//
Look!  I redid my header!  What do you think?  Still simple, but not plain [like it was!].

TWO//
I got a Facebook and Twitter for the blog!  Really exciting.  So, feel free to go like and follow them!  There's also a button for each of them on the left column at the top.

THREE//
As you may have gathered from some of the backgrounds in my outfit pictures, I live in the country!  Well, kind of.  I live in the most beautiful place in Utah.  Anyway, my dad has like 14 cows right now or something.  I think four new babies and two still on the way.  I wanted to leave you all with this cutie video:



Happy weekend!  Any plans?

Wise Guy

The past two weeks, Danny and I have had a date night in the middle of the week!  That makes the week a lot more bearable and seems to make the weekend come sooner!  Last night we went to Wise Guys in Salt Lake City at Trolley Square, where Danny's friend was doing some stand up, then to the Pie Hole on State Street for pizza by the slice.  Here's what I wore on our funny night out:






jacket: UO [old; similar] | tank: Forever 21
pants: Windsor | necklace: Free People 
purse: Forever21 [old; similar]
booties: Steve Madden [similar]
sunglasses: Free People

What kinds of things do you do for date night?

Long weekends and a Winner

I hope you all had a great and safe Memorial Day weekend!  I am so grateful for all the men and women who have risked their lives for our happiness and safety.  This weekend I was able to spend lots of time with family.  Yesterday my parents and I went up to Sundance and hiked to Stewart Falls.  IT WAS GORGEOUS.  It was a perfect day and it was a great hike.  I recommend it to anyone who hasn't done it.  Not too hard and a short one!  I've learned something I didn't know about myself until recently: I love to hike.  I find it so relaxing and liberating.  I can think clearly up there!  And it's a great workout without seeming hard!  I think this will become a regular workout if I'm not doing another workout.  Anyway, here are some pictures of the hike and what I wore [my go to workout attire].  I had to wear my American flag tank... had to.  I can only wear it like twice a year!











tank: Forever21 [old; similar
shirt tied at waist: Nordstrom [old]

Genie in a Bottle

So, a few weekends ago in St. George, my family and I were shopping.  I came across a pair of Paige Premium Denim "genie" pants.  You know, the ones that cinch in at the waist and the ankles, but are baggy everywhere else?  They didn't fit.  That's when I knew that I wanted a pair.  Then last week, I was browsing Nordstrom.com and came across THESE.  I was so excited and bought them.  I know they're a little weird.  But, so am I!  I feel like since I wear and own so many black pants/jeans, I should  mix it up in the fit of them.  Here they are, in all their weirdness!  And I have a guest appearance.  My cat, Nin.  Best.

sweat it out.

The other day I showed you my favorite online hair tutorials.  Today I want to show you, on a different note, my favorite online workouts.  I attend a spin class twice a week, but this is the last week it'll be taught until fall.  These classes are half of my work out for the week!  I get so sad when the classes end for the summer break.  I like to [I mean, "make myself", whatever] work out at least four times a week.  I attend the gym twice a week and spin twice a week.  Now that my spin is ending for the season, I need to come up with another workout routine/plan.  So the days I choose not to hit the gym, I like to hit up YouTube.

  I've found that I love Blogilates - obviously.  Sure, she's not fun to listen to all the time [sorry, Cassey!] but, wow! she gives a great workout.  Which channels do you like?  Are there any workout videos you've found that you love and see the results?  If so, I'd love to hear about them and why you love them.  And, if you need a little inspiration to get up and workout, just watch THIS
*note: I do not own these videos, nor do I claim them.

Thanks for reading!

And the winner is...

Thanks to everyone who entered and for your support:)

As previously mentioned, I have a giveaway for you today!  But, first, a quick [and relevant] fact about me: I love piercings and tattoos.  I would have seven tattoos and two more piercings, if I sported such decorations.  However, these are where my commitment issues lie.  Not with Danny, not with anything else, really.  Just holes and ink in my body.  Anyway, I was looking at Free People the other week and fell in LOVE with this cuff.  But, I just couldn't bring myself to spend $70 on a single, fake piece of jewelry.  So, I went to Etsy.  I came across this shop and picked up two of her basic cuffs!  One for me and one for you.  Well, one of you!  I love how simple it is and I love how it's not screaming, "LOOK AT MY PIERCING!".  It speaks for itself and blends in naturally.

  Here is how I styled it:

pants: Windsor | sneakers: Target 
watch: Skagen | necklace: gifted [details here]
sunglasses: Gap [in store; similar, similar]

Friday, Friday!

We made it!  It's Friday.  Cheers to the freakin' weekend, right? [Thanks for the song, Riri, but thanks, Walk off the Earth, for the better cover.]

Today's post is kind of all over the place.  Several random pieces to talk about:

ONE//
If you happened to miss yesterday's post, you didn't see that I was guest posting on Design, Life, and Style!  Here's a peek:

So, the Cannes Film Festival started on the fifteenth of May.  I'm already drooling at some of the looks from the red carpet.  Here is picture of my favorite look thus far.  Duh, of course it's Cara Delevingne!  I mean after last week at the Met Gala, yet another killer.  Can she do no wrong?!  No - she can't.  Especially not in Burberry and Chopard.

*note: this image is not mine, nor do I claim it.

Did I really just post a picture of me and Cara in the same post?!  That's basically self-esteem suicide.  Anyway, stop by my blog again - I'll be posting more of my favorite Cannes 2013 looks next week or the week after that!

THREE//
I have a fun giveaway planned for next week [as soon as I get it in the mail].  Stop back to enter!

FOUR//
IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, guys!  Please look at how sexy my boyfriend is [oh! and his voice, too]! :)  HERE is Danny's YouTube channel.  Seriously, you'll fall in love.  But he's taken.  I'll leave you with a song he wrote that we sang together.  I get to make up most of my own harmonies.  SO FUN! 



 

Have a great weekend, guys.  Any fun plans?
Thanks for reading/watching.

Blog Swap: Lea from Design, Life, & Style

Have you ever seen one of those perfect girls and thought, "How does she do it? She is flawless!"  Well, if you haven't, get ready to. And if you have, you'll think it again.  I really hope you've already visited her blog, but if you haven't, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Lea from Design, Life, and Style.  I met her a couple years back through a previous job.  We instantly became friends.  At work, we would always discuss fashion blogs and how much we loved them. Now, we both have our own blogs and we've decided to swap for the day! Anyway, without further ado, here is beautiful, inside and out, Lea from Design, Life, and Style.

Hi! My name is Lea and I am the brains behind designlifeandstyle.com; a fashion, interior design, and lifestyle blog. I am so happy to be guest posting on The Inclined Blog today mostly because Hannah is one of my absolute favorite people in the world! I have always known Hannah to have the best taste and she really values her personal style. I was so happy when she decided to start blogging!



Over at Design, Life, & Style you can find anything from the latest fashion trends, to interior design inspiration, or even the occasional yummy recipe! I'm just a Jersey girl living in Utah that loves to shop and decorate and I want to share my sophisticated, yet trendy, East Coast sense of style with everyone!


I hope you enjoy my post and stop by Design, Life, and Style soon! Have an amazing day! xo, Lea
