Outfits of the Week

IMG_1550

This is the first week we’ve let Harper sleep at the foot of the bed, which has translated to getting much more sleep and thus… a semi-operating brain in the morning to remember to snap outfit photos.

I also got rid of almost half of my wardrobe, which, oddly enough, has led me to put together some new combos. Not the most exciting by any means, but take a look.

Outfits of the Week

Wednesday

Happy Friday!

Last weekend was a welcome reprieve, with Nick’s sister Ava visiting and really leaning into vacation mode. But this week has felt long, and I can’t quite explain why. Maybe I’m still recovering from Hello Dolly. Or maybe it’s just life with a pup. 😉

Anyway, this Outfits post is going live automatically because I’m currently spending the morning with Nick and his mom in Swarthmore, PA!

Oh You Know, Just Dumpster Diving

This is going to sound weird and ridiculous, but it’s true. This Monday evening, when Nick and I were walking Harper before I had to head to rehearsal, we saw in our back alley that our dumpster was filled with stacks and stacks of clothes

Getting Creative

I’ve become very financially focused these days, and spending moolah on new clothes is not quite on the to-do list. Instead, I’m working really hard to put outfits together that don’t look like the same old thing every week (although I’m aware that sometimes they do).

Take a gander! I think I did a pretty good job this time around.

Get More Bang for Your Buck

Hi, friends! I finally have some good photos of my living/working space and my bedroom in my Wash Park, Denver apartment!

I thought I’d share how I packed some serious style and utility into its tiny square footage—and on the cheap.

How I Get Stitch Fix Items for FREE!

Rack Up Referral Credit

When it comes to Stitch Fix, I learned early on that it might not be totally worth it to use the service unless you downright hate shopping or have no time to invest in your wardrobe. The clothing can be pricey and not any better quality than your average store.

BUT it’s definitely worth it if your items are FREE. Let me show you how I do it.

Getting Back at It Finally!

Rested & Restored

The dust has settled after the craziest, busiest time of my life! I’ve taken the past two weeks to really decompress, relax, and get back into the groove of what I love to do: hang out with the man, eat, run, have fun, and repeat!

And I’m feeling like myself again. 🙂

I took a break from blogging for those two weeks, so… Prepare for photo overload!

Thrifty Workout Finds: Good Will and Old Navy

SUMMER TANKS & THROWAWAY TOPS

This past Saturday, I left for rehearsal early to stop by Good Will for a super-cheap throwaway top—something I could run in for the first few chilly miles of the Colfax Half Marathon before warming up and tossing it.

I found something great for $3, with tons of time to spare! So I stopped by Old Navy, after hearing they had great sales on workout gear. Here’s what I found!

A SPORTS BRA CRISIS

I recently had a come-to-Jesus moment when I realized the 3 sports bras I own were hand-me-downs from 15 years ago. Don’t judge! There were holes and sweat stains and… yeah, so that’s too much honesty.

I was on a mission to upgrade on a budget. You might be surprised where I found these super-inexpensive-yet-still-stylish workout clothes.
