Outfit Post: New Kicks

Over the weekend, Drew turned and looked at me and said, “It’s amazing the amount of things you think you can squeeze into one day.”┬áThat sentence basically sums up my life and definitely this weekend.

I don’t think it would have been possible to cram more into my Sunday, let alone this weekend. It included one surprise birthday party, one wedding in Cincinnati, one kids birthday party and we went to the Lyle Lovett concert (don’t judge – it was awesome). Plus, I cleaned out my closet in an attempt to sell all my goodies on Sunday (a ton is left over and I’m considering putting up pics on here to see if anyone is interested – lots of cute stuff that doesn’t fit/I don’t need) and took D3 school supply shopping. Running around is a habit.

So I figured it would be only fitting to show off these new running shoes (sike! the only running i’m going to be doing in these is running late). I scored these puppies at KicksUSA where it took me WAY too long to narrow down my favorites. I ended up going with these New Balance 574’s because of how many things they go with in my closet but I could have easily gone for these or these (or about 10 others). Feels like I’m back in 5th grade, without the awkward growth spurt and weird hair, getting a new pair of tennis shoes for the new school year. Now if only I could wear them everyday.

Outfit Post: Yellow

Okay so I know you’re probably thinking ‘what in the samhell is she doing wearing this jacket when it’s August?’ and I would totally agree if I didn’t work in the world’s chilliest office. Seriously, our interns brought blankets in … giant, fleece blankets.

Since my boss thinks that 65 degrees is standard room temperature, it’s important for me to dress in layers even when it’s 90+ degrees outside. This is my typical Friday work wear. Jeans, a simple tee and sneakers. Yes, I can get away with wearing sneakers to work on Fridays with no client meetings. You gotta have some dressing perks when you work in the Arctic tundra.

The good thing is this sweatshirt jacket (yeah I know that sounds weird but that’s what it is) will come in super handy this fall. Good for those lazy days when all you want to wear is a hoodie but a little more polished than that ratty, XL college sweatshirt. And by polished, I mean when you’re going to be seeing other humans. Otherwise that old sweatshirt sounds pretty comfy.
