Spring Break in La Jolla

AKA: A Jolly Gorge-Fest

But first: I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted on The Real Life! I love my job, but work demands a lot of my energy. Blogging is a little too similar to my job sometimes, and as my goals and responsibilities grow at work I’ve felt like the last thing I want to do is more posting. Sorry, guys! I’ve also been prioritizing my mental health and listening to my inner guidance system. When blogging stopped being fun and turned into an obligation (and a way for me to impose perfectionism onto myself) I knew I needed to take a break.

Speaking of breaks… I’m so excited to share a recap of our lovely Spring Break vacation to La Jolla! The Man booked this trip for my 31st birthday, and it was worth the wait.

Finally Sweater Weather

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! With high temperatures in the 60s and even 70s for the past couple weeks, snowfall and lows in the teens have been welcomed by this winter-lover… minus the slipping and falling on my booty in the ice. Whoops! And Harper loves [to eat] the snow!

Anyway, before we take part in our pre-Christmas sushi-delivery dinner tradition and then head to Philly for holiday festivities, here are some sweater-weather outfits from the week.

Also: An exciting $2,500 giveaway!

Here are this week’s outfits!

Running, Food & Holiday Cheer

This weekend was a great one, particularly in the food department! The weather in Denver has hit record highs for this time of year… highs have been in the 60s, which means both of my runs this weekend were in shorts and a tank top. What? It’s December!

We also tried to get Harper in the Christmas spirit. Cute photos ahead!

Outfits of the Week

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.
