Month: April 2017

Friday. FriYAY. Either way, it’s a good day!

Whatever you want to call today, I’m in. It’s finallllllllllly time for me to head to Ohio to visit Cassidy & Josh, explore the city of Toledo, get in some puppy cuddles with Frodo, discover new coffee shops…oh and run a Half Marathon. Eeek! So excited! The weather is looking very Spring-like and perfect for a little 13.1 jaunt. If you caught Wednesday’s post, you know that you can track Cassidy and I on Sunday AM via the RaceJoy app. Send us ALL the cheers {literally, you can send us messages DURING our run} you can–we love every single one. If you, like most people, won’t be up at 7:02am EST you can send us encouragement pre-race too! 🙂 To no shock of anyone who knows me, I’m not quite done packing. My flight doesn’t leave until 5pm this evening so I have plenty of time. Or so I’m telling myself. Honestly I don’t need much more than race clothes, running shoes & my headphones because one of the best perks of having sisters is raiding their closets and having an entirely new wardrobe for a weekend. Ironically despite all 4 of us Breon girls {5 if you count Mom!} having completely different body types, we can share almost all of our clothes. Shoes are a totally different story which is kind of a bummer since we each have a slightly different style and it’d be awesome to have access to 4x the amount of shoes. Wow…I’m rambling. Sorry. I’m running on a 24 oz. Iced Coconut Milk Latte and no food. Need some carbs ASAP. But now lets focus on my outfit because it’s so comfy and perfect for the temperamental April weather!

Applique flowers & an inexpensive price tag.

Any time I see pieces with detailed or intricate applique, I immediately assume they’ll be out of my price-range. Sure there are plenty of cheap options at F21 and similar spots that give off that same look but when you find ones that are legit, they’re usually not within budget. When I saw and felt THIS navy sweatshirt with white flowers, I knew it had to be mine. Currently I cannot get enough cozy yet fashionable sweatshirts and with price of $30 it was a no-brainer. It’s from Target {obsessed} and Victoria Beckham’s line {obsessed x2} so obviously it’s a gem. I’m loving so many of the pieces she created for this collaboration but I’ve noticed that they run pretty big; honestly I tried on two different dresses from the girl’s section and both fit. For reference, I’m wearing this particular top in an XS and it’s still a bit oversized. Casual vibes are always the right choice in my life so pairing my fun new sweatshirt with distressed denim and my bright white mules made errand running last weekend both easy and fashionable. This type of combo is the perfect alternative when I’ve over worn leggings and a workout hoodie for too many days in a row because I’m still comfortable but you don’t look at my wondering if I just rolled out of bed! Alright babes, off to crank out a few more hours at the office then off to the Eastern Time Zone! xox

#1 Chocolate Almondmilk Ice Cubes This is about as simple as it gets but these little guys are game-changers! I’ve been avoiding adding any kind of syrup or sugary substances to my iced coffees in the morning but I haven’t quite found something to mellow out the acidity of my go-to cold brews, until now!

Race Day is Sunday! I cannot believe that my race is literally 4 days away. I’m equally as excited about it as I am incredibly nervous. My training started back in January and I stuck to my plan almost 100% which is kind of shocking. Unfortunately over the past 12 days, after feeling so good […]

Can’t get enough of this sunny weather! I’m with the majority of the population who isn’t thrilled that it is Monday, but waking up to the sun shining and not a cloud in the sky definitely is helping the case of the Mondays that is brewing inside my soul. The sun and espresso that is. […]

Ruffles on a midi dress = instant obsession. Every once in a while I spot a piece of clothing that seems to jump off the screen at me. It’s rare considering I come across WAY too many ‘must buy‘ items while online shopping that one particular thing really stands out, but this dress did just […]

Always a casual Friday around here! Anyone else have kind of a blah week? I know ‘no one can dictate my mood‘ and all that jazz but for some reason this work week has just kind of been sucky and lame. Probably going to blame some of it on the fact that up until yesterday, […]

What’s up y’all?! It’s WEDNESDAY. Weird title for a blog post, I totally get it. I was thinking the same thing. But a majority of the time my titles come easy because they’re focused around a piece of clothing, outfit, food item, etc. but since this one is kind of all over the place it […]
