Zumba is good

Well I survived my first experience with Zumba last night!  I actually really enjoyed myself, but my friend's studio is way too far for me to go on a regular basis, so I'm going to be looking for options closer to home.  I'd like to keep doing it though, it's a great workout and I think it is the kick in the behind my exercise routine needs!

Today felt like another maxi skirt kind of day.  I picked this one up for super cheap on season end clearance at Old Navy.  I have wanted a gray striped maxi for pretty much the whole summer.  While I do like the purple on this one it wasn't exactly what I wanted but for as cheap as it was, I'll take it!  And magically the sun is at a better level for outdoor pictures in the morning again, at least it was today.  I'll take what I can get!

And this next photo just proves to me why I need Zumba.  I've seen a lot of cute pregnant gals out in blogland lately turning to the side and showing off their baby bump.  Well I have a little pooch going on here but it is not a baby bump - think I'm getting a beer belly, eek!  Yep, time to step up my workouts for sure.

I've been missing my Jenna Lou bag, so it was time to switch back to her for a bit.  I still love the versatility of this bag, it's probably my favorite one that I own.  Which if you know me and my love of purses, that is a very bold statement!  Do you have a favorite bag?  Or have you ever tried Zumba?

    I haven't ever tried Zumba, but it looks like fun. My 7 yr old does Zumba at her after school day care, ha ha! Heather

  7. Love this maxi and OMG your non-existent non-baby're hilarious. Zumba is sooo fun! I used to go before we moved but then the gym was too far so we quit :P
    It's a great workout though and you have way too much fun to realize you're actually working out (even if you feel it afterwards)
    Excited for next thursday!

  8. i love this skirt! it's so cute. and you do NOT have a beer belly. i used to love zumba, but i can't make the class, either. i have a dvd if you ever want to borrow it!

  9. ohmyGOSH, I love Zumba! :) It's one of my favorite workouts, if not the best one altogether. I'm so glad you did it!

  10. Love the jacket with the skirt! Think I should go to Zumba also... I really could do with some exercise:)

  11. I am so into gray right now. Very cute outfit.

  12. Great outfit, I lurv the look! I think I also am coveting your bag. ;-)

  13. Ooh the purple is super fab. Congrats on the Zumba. I've never been, but I play dance central at home. It's like Zumba for anti-social people. ;P

    I still haven't found the right bag. My brain still drifts back to the silver piggie bag every once in awhile, but I've mostly been throwing everything in my backpack these days.

  14. love your skirt! and you look great :)
    p.s. i'm your newest follower :)
