I know I’ve said I have few crop tops, yet my last 2 casual outfit posts featured crop tops. Not sure why I’m lying but they come in handy for the Summer. I try to limit impulse buys but couldn’t resist this tee, I did think about it for a week, so it wasn’t really an impulse. I wish Adidas made it in other colors, then again I don’t need the temptation.
This is the only other outfit I managed to snap in Brooklyn, I was grabbing coffee and breakfast at L’imprimerie, it’s a cute little French bakery and cafe. It totally has an hipster vibe, my outfit almost felt out of place. The coffee was excellent and the avocado and PB & J tartines were delicious.
Since I don’t blog as often anymore, there’s things that I don’t get to share with you in a timely manner. So let’s do a little recap. We are in the middle of Summer and I identified some pieces in my closet that I did not see myself wearing in the next month or two, that was my queue to let go of them. It’s a combination of clothing and shoes.
I got rid of 3 blazers, they still look great but I outgrew the style. I realized that I prefer my blazers on the longer side, they have to go past my waist. I picked two new ones, I meant to only keep one but ended up with both blush pink and white, they are under $70. The crepe fabric is perfect, we don’t experience real Fall here, so this is a piece I know I will enjoy to the max.
I’ve said this time and time again, J.Crew Factory has great shoes, the quality is up to par and they are comfortable. I have all three colors of these wedges for work, two of these strappy patent sandals for going out. The latter are way more comfortable than the Stuart Weitzman nudistsong that are seriously a curse, they can only be worn if you plan on sitting most of the time. I noticed that they added a few new styles and this one got my attention. I ordered them in a couple sizes to try, their shoes tend to run half a size bigger on me. I also got this black pair, I have it in blue and again great shoe for an awesome price.
In October, I’m headed to NOLA for a work conference, I’m staying for a few extra days for fun. So if you have any great recommendations, please send them my way. Talking about work, I got promoted to a new position and I’m super excited for this opportunity. I will have more responsibilities but I always welcome new challenges. Good thing I cut back on my posts because I know the first few months will be challenging.
Lastly, I am still enjoying pilates and I just joined a new pilates studio. My regular gym has a few pilates classes weekly but the time is often not convenient for me and I don’t want to sacrifice my other TRX, Barre and Yoga classes. I struggled with not wanting to pay for two gym memberships, but I feel like this is money well spent and to be honest I used to spend way more on clothes monthly so this is a good thing. I can already feel the benefits of pilates, my core has gotten so much stronger, I used to fall apart after one minute of planking. I also found weaknesses, I have a stiffer lower back so now I know to work on that. My flexibility has also improved tremendously, I am a lot more physically active this year and it has done wonders for my overall well being.
Hope I didn’t bore you too much, I know my life is not all the exciting. On Wednesday, I have work outfits coming and Friday is all my monthly cravings. It will be a good one 😉
