I don’t have much to say today and my meal choices have been largely uninspired – dinner was a bowl of Honey Nut Chex and a chocolate chip cookie and milk, delicious but nothing to write home about. Because of this, I wasn’t planning to blog but I was reading a few blogs today and fashion kept coming up. Jenny at Peanut Butter and Jenny is doing a Five Days of Fashion series this week – an idea that I love but my outfits are too boring to participate – and A Healthy Happier Bear posted her outfit today and it was adorable.
Since I work full-time, I don’t get very creative with my outfits these days. Yes, there are the days I rush to yoga and have to camouflage leggings and sports bras underneath my office wear but those don’t always result in “fashion” by any means. I love to shop but find myself looking for things that can double as work and weekend wear. This means that on the weekends, I often don’t want to wear what I have because it reminds me of being at the office. I end up in lots of dress pants and sweater or cami/cardigan combos.
Of course, shopping for my honeymoon has been easy. Summer is so much easier to shop for!
Thank you J.Crew for these fun new arrivals.
My go-to stores are J.Crew, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft. I try to look at some of the local boutiques but I do have a budget to consider. Forever 21 tends to be hit or miss for me, the skirts are often a bit too short for me and it always feels like I really need to commit a good chunk of time to looking through the store. Basically, I need help finding new places to shop and outfit inspiration – help!
