Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Hello There

warby parker_old navy_phillip lim for target_asicsI don’t know about you, but there just never seems to be enough hours during the work week to get any personal errands done. And now that I am dedicated to training for the NYC half-marathon, my ‘free’ hours during the week have become almost non-existent. Saturday’s are my marathon errands day, which is why comfort is key!

No need to sacrifice fashion sense for comfort. That is why I am thankful for super stretchy skinnies and graphic sweatshirts. Pulled out my old school kicks for a laid back and practical off-duty uniform. For a little added glam, I donned not one, but two, shiny necklaces. A functional cross-body leaves me hands free while adding a bright pop of color. This is quite a utilitarian outfit if you ask me. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

    SO cute! Pretty sure you wore this sweater when I saw you in NYC, so totally fitting that you’re talking about the NYC half 🙂 Speaking of, super impressed, and hope I get to see you when you’re here!
