Weekend Wear, Weekend Purchases, and my Husband’s Shirt

On Saturday, I participated in the Take Steps – Be Heard walk for Crohn’s and Colitis, on my good friend Rachel’s team. It was pretty low key, but definitely for a good cause. Since I was also cleaning for most of the day, I wore my Lulu Wunder Under crops and Scuba print hoodie (similar).


Then on Saturday night we had a great dinner party with friends.

Two of my Sunday outfits revolved around a 50’s themed murder mystery party thrown by Rachel. I was playing the part of a 50s teenager, so I wore Oxford flats, cuffed jeans, a white button down, a yellow cardigan tied around my shoulders, and then wore my hair up in a pony-tail with a scarf tied around it.

In the morning we went shopping and to the Louis Vuitton store to see if they could repair the zipper on my wallet. I was incredibly impressed with their customer service. They repaired the wallet for free, and it took them under an hour! I wore my cuffed jeans, my white splendid tee with button rolled sleeves, black flats, and the scarf tied around my head.

At Nordies, I picked up my “waist under 28 inches” reward! I give myself “rewards” in 3 different categories, pounds lost, inches lost around my waist, and number of workouts. It is also a great way to keep my shopping in check! I got a pair of tan Minnetonka moccasins (I have grey ones, but they are too big! I ended up sizing down a full size.) and a new black Diesel watch.

I don’t actually own a white button down, so I decided to steal one of Nick’s. It actually fit well (with the sleeves rolled up) and looked cute! I may have to raid his closet more often….After the party I kept on the shirt, and wore my new moccasins and new watch!

What a Morning!

I always do breakfast with a group of friends on Friday mornings, and while I was climbing into my friend’s jeep, my jeans split open! Completely exposing my behind to the world!

Luckily I was able to borrow his car to drive to the mall nearby. I headed to Nordstrom for the jeans, and since I was there, I decided to grab a new shirt, and some stuff from Lululemon for my trip.

First, I got the Paige ‘Skyline 12’ skinny stretch jeans. They are incredibly comfortable! Can either be worn with jeans, heels, or cuffed up to wear with flats.

Then, I grabbed this shirt (also from Nordstrom), the Splendid mixed media shirt. I got it in grey, but the other colors were super cute, too.

Then, on to Lulu!

I’ve been working on planning my packing list for my trip (I’m going to post the details in another post!), and realized that if I could grab a pair of the wunder under leggings that I’d be eyeing, they’d serve dual purpose for comfortable airplane wear as well as workout clothing for the trip itself. I tried them on, and they were amazing! The benefit about being short is that the crops will be perfect under boots (they were the perfect legging length), as well as great for workouts. I also grabbed this scuba hoodie which was on sale (I have a black one already and love it).
