Good morning, friends! How do you like my new Coffee Talk image? I thought it would be fun to have one that’s a little more personal than what I was using before, and I can change it out for each season with something fresh.
Anyway, I hope you’re having a nice weekend. Our weather was predicted to be kind of dreary, but it’s turned out to be quite nice so far. It looks like tomorrow may be our only rainy day, so yay for that!
I worked for a while yesterday morning, and then I went out for a run before the sun got too high. I ran 3.5 miles for the first time since my last bout of vertigo. I wanted to run 4, but I was afraid of overdoing it. I’m trying to increase my mileage gradually, as advised by my podiatrist.
After that, I did some more work and then spent most of the afternoon by the pool with my Kindle. I finished up book 2 of the Seven Sisters series and started book 3.
I was planning on taking a break from the series after book 2, but the author is really clever about hooking you into the next one, and I couldn’t resist downloading it when I got to the end. The Kindle makes it so easy to hit a button and have a new book ready to read almost instantly.
Anyway, I’m already hooked on book 3, so that’s probably how I’ll spend this afternoon.
Last night we attended a graduation party for a close friend. It’s crazy but fun to see these kids I’ve known almost their whole lives graduating high school and moving on towards adulthood.
Since tomorrow morning is supposed to be rainy, I really should run again this morning, but I may opt for another cup of coffee and share what I’ve been wearing. I know I said I wouldn’t be doing another one of these posts for a while, but I have the pictures so I thought I might go ahead and include them here.
I also have pictures ready for a try-on haul, but I think I’ll make that a separate post. I actually meant to do that yesterday afternoon, but I decided to spend the afternoon reading instead of working. It was Saturday, after all!
At any rate, here are my daily looks from the past week or so.
My Daily Looks
I wore this to meet a friend for breakfast last Friday. I really should make plans like that more often. It was nice to have a reason to get dressed and go somewhere on a weekday other than a doctor’s appointment or a photo shoot.
This dress is 40% off, and while the black is mostly sold out, it’s fully stocked in the two stripe versions. I had the navy and white stripe last year, and it’s really cute as well. I’m also drawn to the grey and black stripe, but I figure I don’t need that in addition to this solid black one.
The earrings are from Premier Designs, I believe, and I can’t find a link to them anywhere. My red bag sold out, but I do love these TB slides. The silver trim on the logo is a fun detail, and the leather is really soft and luxe.
This next look is what I wore to a Blues BBQ last Saturday. It’s an outdoor music festival, and the weather was quite warm, so I wanted to be comfortable. This tank is only $16.50, and I like how it covers my chest, where I tend to burn, but it leaves my shoulders bare so I don’t get a “farmer’s tan.”
I had to drive my husband’s car, which has a manual transmission, and I’ve learned that it’s not conducive to heels — especially espadrilles. Sure, I could have brought the wedges to change into, but that seemed like a lot of effort for an hour-long church service. At any rate, it’s nice to have options! The flat sandals look really good with this dress too.
FYI, this dress is still coming up 30% off with code M5R1, and my Stuart Weitzman wedge mules are 30% off at Shopbop. You can find them in more sizes and colors at Saks, with $75 off (use code SUMMERSF), and the similar for less version by Caslon is 60% off.
I had a photo shoot Monday morning, and I wore this next outfit for the rest of the afternoon.
I still love this top and want to wear it like every other day. I’ve been holding off on ordering another color, simply because I don’t like having a lot of duplicates in my closet, but I’m soooo tempted by that grey.
Also loving these Lucky Brand sandals with the molded footbed. They’re very comfortable and attractive on the foot.
It was chilly on Tuesday morning, and I had to leave the house at 7:30 am for my daughter’s middle school awards ceremony, so I wore my cargo joggers with a grey tee and my denim jacket. These cargo pants finally went on sale! They’re so cute on and such a nice change from jeans.
My Splendid tee is also on sale, and it’s such a nice one. Splendid is known for their incredibly soft tees and other closet essentials, but they’re spendy so I always try to buy them on sale. Size up; I have the medium.
I wore this on Wednesday, I think, although I have no recollection of what I did that day. I was probably at home all day.
I’m not sure what happened on Thursday, but I wore this on Friday. This top is almost sold out, but there are still some left in the short-sleeve version. Also, FYI, these sandals finally went on sale again!
And finally, I wore this last night to the graduation party I mentioned. It was a backyard affair, and I figured I’d get chilly as the night wore on, which I did, so I was glad I wore pants rather than shorts.
This Joie linen tee was a bit of a splurge several years ago, but on a cost-per-wear basis, it has more than paid for itself. The J.Crew roll cuff t-shirt in the hthr grey would be a good substitute in this look. These skinny cargo pants are also the Joie brand, and they’re 25% off at Bloomingdale’s.
And that’s a wrap!
I’m off to church this morning, and then we don’t have any plans this afternoon so I hope to relax and make some headway on my book.
Have a good one!
