Trend Watch Wednesday: Tru Colors

Happy first day of September, beauties!

Ok, first order of business...guess what deliciousness I'll be indulging in this afternoon? That's right! A perfect, warm Pumpkin Spice Latte...the first of the season. I didn't have time to stop at Starbucks this morning, but I'll be stopping by later today for a snack : ) I feel like I deserve a decent coffee treat after my first session at the gym with the Muscle Maniac last night. (To be fair, I'll probably get mine made with skim milk and have them hold the whipped cream.) A couple of observations following yesterday evening:

1) My arms are seriously out of shape. I just thought they were semi-toned. Turns out, they aren't. 5 minutes into MM's workout, I realized this.

2) Tricep kickbacks, hanging dips and cable pull-downs are the devil. However, if the devil can give me guns like Kelly Ripa's, I might be willing to make a deal with him ; )

Arms like Ms. Ripa's? Yes, please!
Anywho, the bottom line is, I cannot wait to see the results in a month or two from all of this workout stuff. And if, in fact, I do see results, I'm highly likely to reward myself with a new outfit or four. Maybe from this store...

You may remember this post that I wrote last year about this superb line of clothing. Tru Colors Apparel was founded in 2007 by Louisiana native, Amy Chenevert (who, I should mention, is an absolute sweetheart!) TCA is a completely presh line of dresses and tops made specifically for we ladies that want to show our team spirit AND look stylish. If you want to support your favorite team without having it literally written on your sleeve, Tru Colors is your solution.

TCA's items are produced in comfy knit fabrics (95/5 cotton lycra), which is perfect for those daylong tailgating sessions and sometimes muggy game days, (as we typically experience in the South until November : ) Each style is specially named after one of Amy's beloved sorority sisters or girlfriends and are all made in the USA.

I think my favorite part of this line is that everything, no really ladies, EVERYTHING, is less than $100! Cute clothes for less than a Benjamin? Uh yeah, sign me up.

A few Blonde Ambition faves for this fall:

1. Ashley
2. Cecile
3. Kara
4. Dray
5. Dray (alternate view)

6. Amanda
7. Rachel
8. Layne

And my MOST favorite, The Stafford

You can read more about TCA's founder, Amy Chenevert (pictured above), here. Additionally, you can order your fave looks by visiting Tru Colors' newly redesigned website or one of the many boutiques soon to be listed online.

SEC girls, ya'll better get all over this!

Be blessed, lovelies-
