happy 5 years of blogging to me! i will do something to celebrate, i promise… any ideas?
if you’re new here, every week, me and a couple hundred of my best friends (wink wink) get together and keep each other accountable by showing what we wore for the week. i started this as an effort to get out of my “lounge wear” (fancy words for pj’s or yoga pants) and put just a little effort into myself. not only has it worked to motivate me to get dressed in the morning, but its also fun! i’m trying new things and mixing up clothes i thought i’d grown tired of. i hope you’ll join in, too!
date night! well, technically my sister was with, but i still call that a date!
tank – old navy clearance (blame the new clothes on my sister)
sweater – gap
jeans – target
boots – steve madden
because i’m always cold, i had to layer a long sleeved t under my tank.
the necklace was a gift from a friend years ago. still love it.
what?!?! yes, thats me. in workout clothes. and i actually worked out! a new pair of running pants motivated me to get back at it and i’m hating every minute of it! (if you use exclamation points, you don’t sound as grumpy) but seriously, this stinks. i used to run, a few years ago, but gave it up because, well because i don’t enjoy it and like sleep so much more. but i need to take care of myself and running is the most logical thing for me. so i went yesterday for a couple miles. and i was aching by the time i went to bed. woke up today in immense pain, decided another run might stretch out my muscles a bit more and loosen me up. i ran until the hurt stopped and then i realized i still had to run back home – gah! i felt good once i got home and then the pain set in. like i-can’t-get-up pain. like i walk around the house like i’m walking on hot coals, super awkward and stiff. stink.
shoes – running wharehouse
pants – forever 21
zippered top – walmart
ear warmer – target (little boy’s section)
you know those days where you feel good about how you look and then you see yourself in a picture and change your mind? yeah, this was one of those days!
the bad picture doesn’t help.
top & wedges – old navy
cardi & trousers – target
necklace – forever 21
bracelet – stacy lynn
i am loving this new necklace, though!
why am i standing so awkward? because i can’t stand normal – it hurts too much!
why don’t i have on shoes? because that would require bending over, which i cannot do!
top – forever 21
pants – crazy old, old navy
and just for fun, i added these new ipad cases into my shop! they have lots of goodies that coordinate with and are so fun!
