Sneak Attack

August 24, 2016

So lately I have become more and more intrigued with sneakers, as you may have noticed in my last post. I’ve worn Chuck’s and Levi’s White Tab Low and high forever, but I’ve been looking at the running style lately. I have a pair of Brooks that you have seen me wear a few times and lately when I’ve worn them I’ve really liked them. So I thought I would check out some new styles and put together a list of favorites for you all. Obviously I lean more toward the retro styles. I also threw together some inspiration photos.

 

A Plaid Shirt and Sneakers Three Ways

August 22, 2016

Something I really want to do with this blog is show how versatile some pieces can be, or how just changing up one element can completely change an outfit. Of course, I have a lot of ideas that never come to fruition because of time and my ability to stay awake while raising a baby and working from home lol. But here is an example! The baby went down for a nap and I went shooting crazy!! I wanted to show how just a pair of jeans and a quality button up shirt can be more than just that. Feel free to chime in on the comments with any thoughts.

Another heat wave is upon us and I have been wearing short sleeve shirts basically every day. I just ordered 2 more today as well. I popped on these joggers again and headed to the mall to check out some end of season sales. I picked up an awesome blazer from Topman for $45 instead of $160. I also ordered another one online for $16… yes… $16!!!!! instead of over $200! And I had a 10% off coupon on top of that! Gotta check them sales, guys!!!!

Farmer’s Market Sundays

August 14, 2016

Every Sunday we head to our local farmer’s market to get samples and pick up our weekly CSA box. It’s so nice being so close to the market because we can just stroll over and back at our leisure. It was so f-ing hot this last time that I tried to stay cool in this new short sleeve shirt and chinos from Nordstrom but after about 20 minutes I was sweating quite a bit in the heat. And it wasn’t even 10am yet! Oh well. I’m not one to complain about heat because I love it. I grabbed a vegan hash from Anthem Vegan and ate it as we walked through the market. I also started off my morning with my new Handpresso espresso maker, though. It works really well to make a 16-bar pressure pull of espresso.
