HELP! I Need New Shoes!

I figured after an entire summer of becoming a runner and running my first of many 5K’s, that I should invest in another pair of running shoes. My current pair of running shoes are NewBalance 790 running shoes. I’m happy with them, but I’m wanting something a bit more. Not to mention, I want some fun colors on my sneaks! I’ve narrowed it down to three different options and I’d love your help!

Let me know what you think! Also, if there’s another pair of running shoes you think I should check out, please let me know!


Must-Have of the Week

I have come up with yet another brilliant idea! I shall share my “must-have of the week” with all of you! An item that I not necessarily own myself, but rather, an item I would die to have. I hope you all enjoy and share with me your must-haves!

Ah! I’m obsessed with these J. Crew bubble necklaces! I want one in every color, please and thank you. I’ve been drooling over this one in particular for months. I’m crossing my fingers it will be mine for my birthday…if not, it looks like Kelsey will just have to stop by J. Crew on her own and do a little birthday shopping.

Ready for Fall?

Am I jumping the gun a little bit with my first fall post? Eh, whether I am or not, I don’t care. I’m more than ready for cooler weather and the color of the leaves changing! Oh, and all of the fashion that comes with this new season. Fall is not only my favorite season, but’s it’s also my favorite season for styling as well. I love the colors and layering and scarves…I am just so ready.

This post will kickstart the first of many fall-related fashion posts since September is just days away. It’s just a little intro to get all of you as excited as I am to dust off your boots and dig out your favorite scarves! AH!

Posts to come:

  • Fall colors
  • Fall prints — mixing and matching
  • Boots
  • Jeans and corduroys  — skinny, cropped, and wide legged, oh my!
  • Scarves and accessories
  • Sweater and cardigans
  • Makeup and hair looks for autumn
  • …possibly some baking, DIY, and personal fall festivity trip posts. When I say “maybe,” I really mean “most definitely.”

Color Run 2012

Look at us, so clean and fresh. That didn’t last long. Today was the St. Louis Color Run and it was everything I expected and more! There’s nothing like running with friends, jamming to amazing music, and being doused in every color of the rainbow! If the Color Run hasn’t already stopped by your town, sign up! It was something I will never forget.


Until next time, fashion lovers!

Favorite Things Friday

HAPPY FRIDAY, everyone! You made it! I don’t know about you, but I had a pretty nice week. There was a lot catching up with friends and work to be done at school before the first day back on Monday. I’m loving being on a normal schedule again. If any of you are heading back to school, good luck and have fun! Here are my favorite things of the week:

Getting adorable monogrammed shirts and letters from my pen pal.

A great playlist for my runs

Great friends — have a great semester, Sarah!

Picking up my Color Run gear! WOO!

Alrighty, only four this week. I was super busy and this was all I was able to snap on Instagram. My Color Run is tomorrow morning and I’m pumped! I’ll be sure to post photos ASAP! Have a great weekend!
