Hanes Sunkissed Tights Giveaway (CLOSED)





This post is sponsored by Hanes Hoisery. All content and opinions are my own.
There have been some warm temperatures here in Utah this past week and it’s safe to say that my skin color is lacking that “summer glow” right now.  At my current job I’m inside most of the day so I don’t get as much Vitamin D as I’d like… especially on my legs! It’s now skirt and short weather here and I always feel self-conscious with my white legs from winter. I was recently introduced to the new Hanes Hosiery’s Silk Reflections Sunkissed Ultra Sheet Tights and they have been a fashion lifesaver for me! You probably can’t tell but in these photos I’m wearing the Hanes Sunkissed Tights in Medium Bronze size CD. They easily blend with your current skin tone and give your legs a natural bronzed look in just a matter of minutes. With skin cancer on the rise and messy fake tanning lotion, Hanes Sunkissed Ultra Sheer Tights are the way to go! With five shades available, it’s very easy to find the right color and fit for your body.

Hanes is giving away not only one, but TWO pairs of Hanes Hoisery's Sunkissed Ultra Sheer Tights to TWO lucky readers of Unpredictable & Chic in the color & style of their choice! Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below and remember, the more entries you complete, the better chance you have of winning! All entries will be verified and the winner will be announced & notified via email on Monday, June 9th! Good Luck and thank you for reading!

All Black Everything





Black is one of my favorite colors lately. As much as I love the bright colors of spring, black will always be classy to me.  I love pairing black with…. well, BLACK! Black on Black is such a great look on anyone, instantly slimming and chic. I added a black hat and some gold detail to the mix this time and I love the end result. Happy Hump Day to you all, keep it up only a few more days until a four day weekend!!

Wear The Paint + Giveaway! (CLOSED)






The work week is back and I'm sending happy Monday vibes your way! This weekend was pretty perfect, with 80 degree weather and a weekend spent with my husband, doesn't get much better than that. As warm as it was this weekend, I swear I’m always cold. My husband being the manly 6’4, 280 that he is, our body temperatures are constantly opposite of each other. If our house could stay at 78 degrees always, I’d be content! Even in the spring and summer here in Utah, there may be a random day where the temperature drops or you may need a few extra layers as the sun goes down. I love the pencil skirt & graphic sweatshirt combination. It’s very laid-back and perfect for my current style. I think the most important part of pulling off the pencil skirt & sweatshirt combo is the choice of colors you choose to wear. More contrast the better in my opinion! This Giant Rose sweatshirt is made of extremely comfortable fabric and I've been wearing it on repeat the past week. 

Wear The Paint is an Etsy Shop that specializes in hand-painted shirts and sweatshirts for men & women. Can you believe this Giant Rose sweatshirt design is hand-painted? Victoria, the shop owner of Wear The Paint is extremely talented and has a large variety of amazing designs available, see {HERE} for the full collection! Use coupon code "CHIC25" at checkout to receive 25% off your order from Wear The Paint Etsy store. Code expires June 30th so use it now!

Aerie Bra Fitting Guide #AerieReal





I received an Aerie gift card as part of my relationship with Quality Blue Community. All opinions expressed are my own.

If there’s one thing I think women should care more about, it would be bras. It’s really important to find and wear the right size throughout your life, especially since they are something you wear often! I completely understand the relief that comes from taking off your bra at the end of the day. HOWEVER, what if you could actually wear a bra all day that was super comfy and you wouldn’t want to take it off? This isn’t a myth; it’s a reality with the new Aerie Bra Fitting Guide!

Everyone’s body is different, boobs included. Not everyone is going to need the same size, fit, or coverage.  My bra size has increased over the past few years and I have had difficulty finding bras that give me both support and comfort throughout the day. I am really picky about the type of bras I wear and the Aerie Bra Fitting Guide helped guide me to the perfect ones! The Aerie BraFitting Guide lets you to select your bra size (P.S. they also offer great fit tips in case you are unsure of your size), and then filters the bras in your size based on type such as push-up, strapless & multi-use, and layering bras! I can get pretty hesitant about buying things online but Aerie’s free shipping and free return-shipping on all purchased bras was a huge incentive for me.  

One of the unique things about the Aerie Bra Fitting Guide is that they show real, untouched photographs of women modeling their bras from sizes 32AA to 40DD. I loved this because with other bra websites it’s hard to get a realistic idea of what it’s going to look like on, especially when it’s being modeled by some super tall & skinny model that looks NOTHING like my own body type. Another great thing about Aerie is that all of their bras are reasonably priced. All of these bras came to a price less than $50! By using the Aerie Bra Fitting Guide, I purchased the following bras (as pictured above):

Aerie Seamless Bra in color Sweetheart: This bra fits great, I love the racerback fit and the full support is provides making it perfect to work out in! Oh and it’s only $15!

Aerie Softest Lace Perky Bralette in Buff: I am in love with lace lately and you can’t help but feel feminine and beautiful when you wear a lace bra! This bra comes in a variety of gorgeous colors and it’s perfect for wearing under a dress or flowy top for summer!

Aerie Signature Lace Bandeau in Black: I’ve never worn a bandeau before so I thought I would try this out. I love the lace on this bra too and I know this will be a good layering bra for those hot summer days.

Chic Weekly 5.15.14


I have been feeling lately like I need to make this blog more of a place where I can record memories and share our adventure of being newlyweds and living downtown, like an online diary of sorts. While I love sharing fashion and the outfits I create, there is so much more to me, my interests, and my life! I have struggled getting personal on the blog sometimes since I am a VERY private person. I’m trying to work on that because I know that sharing isn’t always a bad thing, it’s a way to connect with others.  I hope you like this new layout for Chic Weekly… it allows me to get a little bit more personal with all of you. Thank you to all my loyal readers, I love being able to have this blog as a creative outlet and each of you make every post worth it for me!

Dark Florals





Happy Hump Day! The weather here in Utah has been so blah and I'll admit I've been feeling the same way. Knowing that I'm already half-way through the work week is an added plus and I can't wait for another relaxing weekend with the hubby. Anyone else anxious for some summertime weather?

I have succumbed to the kimono trend and trust me, I’m not complaining. I love everything lately that oversized and “flowy” as I like to call it. It’s very feminine and perfect for relaxing during the summer.  I’ll admit the only thing I don’t like about kimonos is the fact that most of them are very sheer. Sheer can be a good and bad thing so when I found this kimono at H&M on my work break, I was thrilled that it was the perfect amount of sheer AND it was black! Black has pretty much become my go-to color, even as it’s warming up.

IdealShape Review + Giveaway! (CLOSED)




You’ve heard me talk {here} about being healthy and confident in your own skin which is something very important to me.  I have wanted to try a meal replacement shake for a while now but have been unsure which one to try so when I got the opportunity to review some weight-loss products from IdealShape, I jumped at the chance!!  I was able to try out the following products c/o IdealShape:
  Tub of IdealShake Mix in Chocolate
NatralShape Enhanced Hunger Blocker Dietary Supplement
I have been using IdealShake Mix for about a month now and have already seen some great results. I have more energy in the morning after I drink it and I have noticed that by taking the NatralShape hunger blocking pill 30 minutes before meals, I have been eating smaller portion sizes! I’m a big snacker during the day and the cinnamon caramel crunch idealbars taste GREAT! Just by seeing the name of them you already know they’re going to taste amazing and they satisfy all my sugary cravings in one little bar. One thing I have heard about other meal-replacement shakes is that they don’t taste that good. I was a little worried to try the IdealShake mix but when I saw that it was CHOCOLATE, all my fears went away. (Duh!)  It has tasted great every morning and the shaker bottle is great for de-clumping the excess powder.  TIP: I have been combining the shake mix with Almond Milk lately and it gives it a little extra flavor!
One thing that is important with meal-replacement meals/shakes is that you should still keep up a healthy workout routine to maximize results. I loved how the IdealShape came with a great tutorial full of workout routines that I could do while taking IdealShape. Not only that, but IdealShape also includes information on how to start yourself on a healthy meal plan complete with nutritional information, healthy recipes, and grocery shopping guides! Visit the IdealShape website for additional weight loss methods such as DVD’s for purchase and weight loss challenges you can participate in.
IdealShape is being so generous and offering one lucky reader of Unpredictable & Chic their very own IdealShape 30 Day Kit which includes the following:
1 Tub of IdealShake Mix
1 Box of IdealBars
1 Shaker Bottle
$70.00 retail value

Enter the Rafflecopter below and Good Luck! The giveaway will last two weeks and the winner will be announced via email on Tuesday, May 27th! Open to US Residents Only! All entries will be verified, please be honest!

Elephant Print







Monday is back again, hope you all had a great Mother's Day weekend! This season I am all about prints, especially unique ones like this cute elephant-print tunic from Ovoloo. This tunic is extremely light-weight, and I really like the button and pocket details. With working full-time in an office that requires business casual, I’ve been trying to make more of an emphasis in purchasing clothing I can dress up for work as well as wear to the grocery store or on a date night. I wore this tunic with a bright pink skirt last week and decided to have a more relaxed look for this post. I look like I’m planning for a safari right? Ovoloo is an NYC based fashion retailer tthat specializes in leggings, intimates, dresses, plus size options, sports wear and shape wear! All of their clothing is extremely affordable, go check it out! Use coupon code "UFDWDLNL" on checkout to receive 10% off your purchase
