Jeans are here (40% off!!!), similar sweater is here, bodysuit here (comes in 3 colors), shoes here, sunglasses here.
Oh, my, gosh,… these jeans are by far my favorite pair! You need to get them while they are 40% off! They are a nice light wash so you can wear them during the day, and you can dress them up at night as well. They go with so much and the distressed look makes them that much more springy.
I paired them with this bodysuit since they are slightly high waisted. It is so comfortable! I ordered a size too big (I always get nervous when ordering bodysuits online), so I will have to shrink it a bit. It definitely runs true to size and it comes in 3 other colors! It’s not warm enough yet to to wear tanks so I paired this lightweight sweater with it so you can still see the outfit, but also be cozy when running errands.
These shoes…. THESE SHOES! I’m going to start off by saying I am so glad I got them a few weeks ago. I have been waiting to wear them and I think they are going to be on my feet majority of the upcoming months. They are SO comfortable and they make you a little taller which I like without wearing heels. They are the perfect slip on and go shoe. You should definitely invest in a pair!
As for this weekend, it has been very relaxing. Saturday I had my 10 mile run and my goal was to not stop, and I did just that so i’m very happy!! I came home and my boyfriend had cleaned our entire place – it was so nice! Our little kitty baby (her name is Wrigley) turned 2 yesterday so we went out and got her a new toy and a cookie cake (even though we will be the ones eating it). Here is a picture of her with her presents. We are absolutely obsessed with her if you couldn’t tell. She has such a great personality. I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend!!

 Dress is here, jacket is here, shoes are here, sunglasses here.
I wore this outfit last Sunday when I got home. It is so comfy and it’s easy to add layers with the jacket to keep you warm. If it gets hot, you just take the jacket off and still look dolled up! My converse are some of my favorite shoes to wear, and these are so cute with the ruffled back. They cling to your heel more so that your feet don’t pop out when you walk. In addition to the shoes being one of my favorites, these sunglasses have been my FAVORITE pair to wear this spring. If you don’d have a pair yet, or want more I highly suggest these!!
What an eventful week it has been! Work, coaching, grocery shopping, making dinner, laundry, training for half marathon, running this blog, my Instagram page, my closet page, etc., have kept me very occupied so sorry if my posts are lagging, but I love being this busy!! It helps the days fly by:).
This weekend I have my long run coming up, 10 miles! I have never ran that far before so i’m a little nervous for it. Any tips from fellow runners? All and any advice will be gladly welcomed:) Also, on Saturday my little kitty baby turns 2!!!! I can’t believe she’s growing up so fast. This means I get to buy her a new toy, and a cookie cake, when really I will be eating it for her! 😉
Every night after getting home, my boyfriend and I have been binge watching a new Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. I read the book a few years back and it was very eye opening so I was excited to see the series. It is very sad, so be cautious when watching it! We are on episode 5 right now. What are some suggestions you guys have for good Netflix series to watch?!? I’m looking for some new ones to start!

Hey guys! How were all of your weekends? There was beautiful weather here if you live in Chicago!
Yesterday I woke up early to do my long run for my half marathon training. This weekend was 9 miles, and the trail I was on was so pretty! I love running in different areas and finding other trails and areas to go to. It’s such a great way to get out and explore. After that my boyfriend and I had some friends over and we went to Top Golf. If you haven’t ever been there you HAVE to go. It’s a mix of darts and golf – so fun! We have been to the one in Wooddale before, but tried the one in Naperville that they built last summer since we live out here now and it was crazy busy.
Today was Easter Sunday so we went to my parents for our family party. My mom is so silly and always loves to do games at family parties; this time we did bozo buckets. After we got home we went on a walk around the golf course that we live on. Great food, great family, and a great weekend!:)

​ Top is here (on sale for $29!!), jeans are here (I LOVE these!!), similar booties here, sunglasses are here.

I highly suggest getting these jeans! They are SOO cute and comfortable! They can be paired perfectly with booties, or sandals. They will definitely be a staple piece of my wardrobe going into spring and some chilly summer nights! This top is very soft also, and such a pretty color. I’m definitely thinking about snagging another in a different color while it’s on sale!
This week has been a busy one. We have had PARCC testing at school, which always makes for longer days when the kids feel a little sleepy (and teachers do too!!:)). It’s nice to get outside after school for the girls soccer practice. It has been a little chilly but it is supposed to warm up this weekend again which is exciting for Easter! March was such a busy month with things every single weekend between my boyfriends birthday and my sisters birthday and my spring break from teaching, so i’m enjoying every weekend in April while I can with no plans so I can just get out and about! My boyfriend has been talking about going to top golf on Saturday. Have you guys ever been there? It is so fun! I want to go to the one in Arizona next time i’m there because i’ve heard it’s so pretty with the view of the mountains in the back. Do you all have any fun plans coming up or fun things to do/ideas to get outside? If you do, please share! I love doing new things.
I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

What a windy day out! I guess that’s why they call it the windy city – I feel like every time I try to take pictures I get blown away!! Anyway, this top is so so cute and i’m so glad I snagged it. Apricot lane has the cutest tops but you do need to purchase quick or they sell out fast!
This weekend was BEAUTIFUL! Saturday I woke up and went running with my friend Katie, then we went to Fleet Feet to check out running belts for our half marathon we are running with our coworkers towards the end of May. I then came home to watch some lifetime movies and just relax. Today has been a crazy busy day running around to a few different places. This weather makes me so happy! Hopefully one day soon I can move to Texas so that I can enjoy weather like this a lot more often!!!! My boyfriend and I said that we wanted to move by 2020. Hopefully that comes true! Do any of you have opinions on the Dallas area?
