Calling all t-shirt hoarders!

Aeropostale is having a major sale right now, and while I’m pretty sure I’ve outgrown — out-matured? — 85% of their inventory, I really love their basics. Right now, tees and camis are buy one get TWO free. I’ve been stockpiling their v-necks when I can find them on sale, since I basically live in t-shirts and jeans through the workweek. They have just the right amount of stretch, and hold their shape through lots of wash-and-wears. And, at around 6…

Sunday Best

Last Sunday, the spring cleaning bug bit C; he came home from the gym with my father-in-law’s pressure washer and big plans to clean the exterior of the house. While he busied himself blasting the mildew from our stucco, I threw on my old Sunday standbys headed out for some errands and shopping. My spring weekend uniform is typically some simple variation of this: cut-offs (I made these from a pair of extra-long Joe’s I…

Overdrive

Happiness is: a big ol’ pom-pom sweater and leggings. I snapped this photo on my way to the shop early Saturday morning. When I have to schlep my haggard behind to work on weekends, I like to throw on easy outfits that can transition to cozy nap-wear without a hitch. Speaking of naps, I’d like about a dozen of them. I’m feeling the burnout hard this week. Things are slowing down to a normal pace…

leggings are not pants. but gosh, they are comfortable.

Today, in lessons of thou shall never say never: Once upon a time — when my closet was filled with pencil skirts, Express Editors, stilettos and all other manner of 9 to 5 attire — I put my nose in the air and proclaimed, “I will never wear leggings out of the house!” I relegated them to loungewear and workout gear; which means I mostly just wore them while lounging because I don’t work out…

weekend wear

We had an absolutely lovely weekend filled with cool weather, football, warm and hearty home cooked meals, and just the right amount of laziness. I only bothered getting dressed on Saturday — for work in the morning followed by a local college tailgate party later in the afternoon. There just so happened to be a Pioneer Days festival across the street from the stadium, and I spied a “Handmade Chocolate!” sign so we moseyed on…

hot & spicy

I certainly wasn’t feeling very “hot and spicy” yesterday… We snapped these outfit photos in the morning when we dropped off our delivery van for new vinyl graphics; just hours before a 24-hour bug hit me like a Mack truck. It started with the tiniest of headaches and an itchy throat, and ended… well, badly. Fortunately, a few bottles of Gatorade and 14 hours of sleep later, I woke up feeling much better, but kind…
