Tee is here(comes in 5 colors), jeans here, sandals here (come in so many colors – and such a great price too!), similar bag here.
This tee is so cute and casual! It is so versatile and easy to pair (I have it in the gray color too – and contemplating purchasing more). I’m the type of person that when I really like basic staples I buy a few of them!! Anyone else like that?!
I paired this casual tee with distressed jeans for this windy day, and wore my new sandals! Old Navy was having such a great sale I bought them in this color and in the blush. They are so comfortable and fit true to size. They matched with my bag to tie all the neutrals into one mix so I thought they’d be perfect to pair with this outfit. Shop them with the link above or in the widget at the bottom of the post. 🙂
How has your guys weeks been?!? Mine has been good – it has been scorching hot here – yesterday it got up to 90 degrees! I can’t believe there are only 4 days until my half marathon – I hope it cools down by then. These past 3 months of training have flown by, but boy am I so glad for this to be over. I’m so nervous for it the nerves are eating me alive! I know there is nothing to be nervous about, but you all know the nervous feeling! Any of you have tips to calm your nerves?!?

 Cardigan here (a dream!!), top is here, jeans here, necklace here, similar sandals here.
O M G. This cardigan is a DREAM! When I saw it online I wasn’t sure, but when it arrived in the mail it is SUCH a pretty color! This is perfect to dress up and go out to a fancy lunch or dinner in, or to lounge in on the couch but still feel girly. The little slits on the side make it so that it doesn’t look to baggy and it hangs around your sides just right.
I paired it over this double strap cami that is so cute and feminine. I ordered two of them during the nsale last year and haven’t worn them until today. I love that you can wear it front wards or backwards, and it isn’t see thru (it has two layers) so you don’t have to worry about anything showing, but it is still breezy. I’m happy I got these because I will be wearing them a lot more often now that it is getting warmer out.
This weekend has been so beautiful and such great weather! I woke up yesterday and ran my 12 miles for my half marathon training (half marathon is next weekend already- I can’t believe it!!). I then went shopping with my sister and came home to rest my legs. They are SO sore, but it feels good! Today we went out to lunch for Mother’s Day. We went to a place called Rack House in Arlington Heights and did a buffet. At first we were hesitant because when I made reservations they never mentioned it was going to be buffet so we went in expecting to order what we wanted off of the menu, but it all worked out. Their food was delicious, and I almost liked buffet better because you can take a little bit of everything!
We then came home and i’m now hanging out with the baby kitty Wrigley (since i’m her mother right?!?!) Cat mom for life! Hope you all had a great weekend and happy mother’s day to all the mothers out there!! You are greatly appreciated!

Hey guys! Free People is turning into one of my favorite brands, and I have been purchasing a lot of items directly from the store, and also through Nordstrom. Below are a few of my favorites – some I have already purchased, and others are on my wish list – and future purchase list! SO many of them come in a lot of different colors and can be styled with so many things and in different ways. There are a lot of great price points too! Take a gander at my favorite 10 and splurge!:)

Dress is here, shoes here, bag here.
Hey all! How is your week going?? If you need a little Wednesday pick me up I suggest purchasing this dress! It is so comfortable and it’s on sale! It comes in gray with stripes, or white with stripes (I hope the white comes back in stock so I can purchase it!). This is definitely going to be a go-to dress for me this spring and summer. You can dress it up with wedges or down with flip flops. I know i’ve said it before, but dresses are my favorite because they are so easy and effortless, and you still look good!
If you do like the white striped dress, it is currently sold out, but Nordstrom is very good about things coming back into stock. Sometimes i’ll check each morning to see, and i’ll be pleasantly surprised!
This week has been going okay so far, and we are halfway through! My girls lost their first soccer game yesterday which was a little sad, but it helps us learn what we need to work on for next game. They were a little tired since we ran 3 miles on Monday during practice, which brings me to my next statement. Only a week and a half until my half marathon! I am so excited to be done with the training so that I can just run for fun and enjoy it, rather than extensively. Boy is it crazy what you can push your body to accomplish if you put your mind to it!

 Top is here (I have the denim color – originally from Nordstrom, but sold out), jeans are here, shoes are here, necklace here.
I have been on a Free People kick lately where I just want to buy all of their stuff! I used to live right by an actual Free People store in Chicago, but moved last year and am so sad that I now have to order stuff online. Although I do love ordering online since it gives you something to look forward to coming home! Anywho, if you don’t have this top, you should definitely splurge! I usually wear a medium in clothes, and this is how a medium fits on me. I could have sized down if I wanted to. I like the medium though because it is way more comfortable than I thought! I love how flowy it is (if you wear it out you can eat a TON of food and nobody will notice!!!). I tucked it in since it is so baggy, but you can wear it untucked too.
I paired it with one of my favorite pairs of jeans (I just love the dark denim color), but you could also pair it with leggings for a more comfy and cozy look, or tuck it into a cute pair of denim shorts. I dressed this look up with these wedges and this necklace. These wedge are the dupe and are so comfortable to walk in I could wear them around all day! I have mentioned this necklace before on another blog post, but it’s so feminine! It goes with so much; perfect for a summer choker!
I wore this look to my boyfriend’s cousins’ graduation party yesterday. I was weary of what to wear because the sun was so hot, but the wind made it cold. This was perfect for when the sun set and it got chilly. There was so much food (and I ate a ton – being hungry is definitely my thing – especially after running 11 miles yesterday morning) so this top was perfect to hide it all.
Today is our day to run errands – Costco, Target, our usual Chipotle Sunday. What do you guys have planned for the last day before going back to work tomorrow? I hope you have  a great week!
