two pairs of old navy straight-leg jeans (similar) in light + dark wash
I stopped by Old Navy after a weekend chock full o’ board meetings. A bit of retail therapy was in order, plus I had a $10 off coupon to use on a purchase of over $20. These puppies were on clearance for $10.99 each, so, combined with my coupon, I ended up paying $13 for two pairs of jeans ($6.50 each!). Awesome.
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of high-intensity interval training, but was wearing my same old running sneakers. They are super cushioned, which is great for running, but not so much for keeping my balance during cross-training moves. I’ve only worn these New Balances around town for errands, but they are super lightweight and comfy. I’m thinking that they’re going to be a big improvement for my workouts, plus they’ll be great for the travels we have planned for this year!
So happy to have found makeup remover that’s natural available at a local store.
craft supplies from michael’s
I realized recently I haven’t been doing nearly as much crafting as I’d like, considering that I was once the arts and crafts director at a summer camp. So, I procured wooden beads and sueded cord to make some jewelry (mostly necklaces) and then a set of paint brushes, a book of watercolor paper, and a set of watercolors. Hopefully I’ll have time sometime soon to delve into these more deeply!
anne klein fully-lined trench coat (via nordstrom rack)
This jacket was definitely a bit of a splurge item (at $90), but I’ve always loved having a timeless trench coat. They’re perfect for pretty much every occasion and are easy to throw on. I’ve been lusting after the Burberry trench coats for ages, but at their $900+ price tag, owning one will pretty much never be in the cards for me. One of my favorite things about the Burberry version is that it had a full wool lining that could be removed during warmer weather and added back in when temps dip. While shopping at Nordstrom Rack (in search of a trench coat), I came across one from Anne Klein that was basically identical. I just couldn’t pass it up!
spanx reversible tights (via nordstrom rack)
I got my last pair of these 3+ years ago and they’re still going strong. Based on the wear and tear they get (as well as numerous trips through the washing machine), I’m pretty sure they’re indestructible. Definitely worth the $20 price tag!
sally hansen double duty base + top coat (via ulta)
I needed some new base/top coat and picked this up while we were out running errands. Luckily, it doesn’t score too badly on the EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, but it definitely wasn’t the most mindful purchase.
