Last week I wore the sporty trend with tennis shoe as seen in this post. However, I wanted to wear the sporty trend to the office and a silk shirt and dressier shoes are all that I needed to make it work. How are you incorporating the sporty trend into your wardrobe?
J. Crew Sweater (similar), J. Crew Shirt, J. Crew Pant, Louise et Cie Heels, Kate Spade Beau Handbag (I have to say I liked this bag when I saw it in other colors, but I just had to have it when I saw it in navy blue.)
Six of my girlfriends are training together for the Rock the Parkway Half Marathon coming up April 12th! I have been using Map My Run to track distance and time and I like to check what my splits are. When I first started running I had never ran over three miles, so each week the long runs over the weekend cause my nerves to be on edge with the anticipation of the run. I have to say if it wasn’t for this group of girls, I definitely wouldn’t be training. I hope all six of us will be able to run this weekend as it will be a 10 mile run. I can’t imagine running it on my own. We were missing Teri when I took these pictures.
I typically am a big fan of Fall and I actually don’t mind winter weather as I love to wear layers. However, when training for a half marathon during some of the coldest days is starting to convert me into the category of “I wish Spring were here!” I wore a pop of pink as this color reminds me of Spring and Easter will be here before we know it.
I love any opportunity to wear jeans and since I work with a bunch of CPA’s who are in the midst of tax season, we have had Friday Jeans Days. So thank you to all the hard work as the rest of us love the denim opportunity.
I had a beef chuck roast, but didn’t know what I wanted to do with it…So I entered chuck roast into the Pinterest search engine and I found this amazing Beef & Mushroom Braised Beef Stew recipe on Taste of Home. I made homemade mashed potatoes and I roasted carrots to go along with the main course. It was delicious! I love how the steam was coming off the food in the pictures.
Sporty Chic Trend
I love the sporty trend and when you take sports and fashion and you blend the two together, I get the best of both worlds. Saturday was a sporty day for us as we watched our girls play their last basketball game of the season, and they won! Then we went to my niece’s 7th birthday party at a gymnastics academy and the kids got to live out to pretend they were training for the Olympics! I hope you all had a great weekend! – Smiles – Carrie
J. Crew Hat (I wore it two days in a row, I love it so), J. Crew Sweater (similar), J. Crew Pixie Pants, Michael Kors Tote (similar), Ray Ban Avaiator Sunglasses (here & here), Puma Tennis Shoes (old, like these), J. Crew Scarf (old, like this one)
I peaked out the window as I heard a few sprinkles and the clouds were beautiful. By the time I was ready and hopped into the car, I had missed the really great and interesting clouds by 30 minutes. Moments later after I took these shots, the winter rain storm came down. I hope you enjoy!
Today was a day that when I pulled my outfit together I just felt “sassy classy!” And yes, I now officially have a photo studio in my house and I am so giddy about it as it as I now don’t have to take photos outside in the freezing cold in the early mornings!!!! Who wants to schedule a photo shoot?!?! I have already been planning my nephew’s photo shoot for when he is born this summer. It is amazing what kelvin lighting can do to improve your photography. Wahoo!
I am excited it is the weekend! We get to watch our two daughters play basketball, then they are going to a Rainbow Loom Party, I will be running 7 miles today with friends in a surprisingly warm 50 degree day, we are taking our girls to dinner to one of their favorite Thai restaurants in Lawrence, KS, called ZenZero, and I will then be meeting a group of friends out for a bit for a birthday celebration. Busy day and I hope to capture several moments on my Canon 7D camera!
When I bought this jacket from the Loft several years ago I instantly thought it looks like a Chanel jacket and I had to have it. I like the versatility it gives me as I can wear it with jeans or with dress pants.
