baby blue sweater + 10 day cleanse

lauren sims baby blue sweater lauren sims baby blue sweaterI bought this baby blue sweater in the tan version last fall and seriously lived in it. It was my go to for every wedding shower, date night, or dinner with the parents! So when I saw that it came in a light blue, I snagged it without a second thought.

I don’t know about where you live but I know in Boulder it will probably stay cool through March and April – and this is the perfect sweater for those temperatures! Also want to call out these booties. I was wanting a pair of booties that I could wear now when it’s still a little chilly, but also wear in spring with white denim or denims shorts – and these have been PERFECT. Since they’re perforated you can really wear them year round. I also love the little cutouts.lauren sims baby blue sweaterIn other news…if you follow me on snapchat (or have seen recent IG stories)…Michael and I are doing a 10-day herbal cleanse right now! You might remember last January I did the advocare 24-day challenge. The 10-day cleanse we are doing is the first 10 days of the 24 day challenge (if that makes sense). So, you can either do the entire 24 day challenge, or you can also just choose to do the 10 day cleanse. So, I’ll explain what the cleanse is and why we’re doing it!

What is the Advocare 10-day herbal cleanse?

The AdvoCare Herbal Cleanse system can help rid your body of waste and prepare the body for optimal nutrient absorption with its unique blend of herbal ingredients. Using a systematic approach, this 10-day system guides you through the daily steps for thorough internal cleansing and improved digestion.

Each Herbal Cleanse System includes three key products:

  • ProBiotic Restore™ capsules (in the Herbal Cleanse box)
  • Herbal Cleanse tablets (in the Herbal Cleanse box)
  • AdvoCare® Fiber

So basically, it’s 10 days of eating really clean (no sugar, alcohol, dairy). So we’ve been eating eggs, chicken, ground turkey, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, etc. In conjunction with a healthy diet, we take the supplements that come with the cleanse to help cleanse and detox our bodies of toxins.

Why we are doing the Advocare 10-day cleanse:

So, the last two weeks Michael and I were in Dallas before the move were complete chaos. We were eating out almost every night (PS miss you, Chuy’s), definitely having dessert everyday, and just not fueling our bodies right. After that, we went to Montana with Michael’s family and of course on vacation you let yourself eat whatever you want! #Noregrets

But after all of that both of us just felt sluggish and bloated and yuck. The cleanse really does make you feel so much better/lighter/healthier and takes away that bloated feeling. We’ve had more energy and my skin looks better (because we’re drinking so much water!). It’s also been great because it’s forced me to look up clean, healthy recipes, and allowed us to cook more together! We’re 6 days in but it’s been such a great experience so far.lauren sims baby blue sweaterOutfit details: Baby blue sweater (similar here – wearing the US 2) | Distressed skinny jeans | Suede saddle bag | White tassel earrings | Perforated leather booties

I’ll probably do another post or two next week with some of the recipes I’ve made! But, just wanted to give you guys a low down of what the cleanse is, in case y’all are interested in doing it as well!

Have y’all done any type of cleanse/detox before? What was your experience with it? I tried a juice cleanse once and legit hated it haha slash I kind of don’t think those are healthy (IMO). I love the Advocare 10 day cleanse because you’re eating real food and fueling your body with whole and healthy nutrients!

    Love this outfit Lauren! The sweater is such a beautiful color! I was wondering though during the challenge what do you eat for snacks? I love the idea of eating really clean for a bit to rid toxins but snacks always ruin it for me haha!

    What size is this sweater you are wearing? I think we are similar sizes…There is a size 2 available on Nordstrom now, but not sure if there was a 0 at some point. If so, that would probably be my size! I love the sophistication of the sweater.
