The Lucky Find + Hello Monday Linkup

Hi friends!

I wore this combo to work the other day, because I couldn't wait to wear this new skirt.  I paired it with this heather gray t-shirt and denim jacket to dress it down, since my office is pretty casual.
Gap modern crew tee [exact]  //  Kut from the Kloth denim jacket [exact]  //  Elie Tahari lace pencil skirt [similar, similar]  //  Naturalizer Felicity lace-up sandals c/o [exact 50% off!]  //  Vince crossbody [similar]  //  Kendra Scott Madina earrings [similar]  //  Bite Beauty lipstick in 'Sweet Cream' [exact]

How gorg are the details on this skirt?!  I stumbled upon it in the Runway section at TJ Maxx, and at 80% off retail I couldn't pass it up.  Elie Tahari always has such impeccable details, textiles, and fit, so I was really excited to add a piece to my wardrobe for under $100!

The Scalloped Shirt Dress & Hello Monday Linkup

The other day at work, I grabbed Panera for lunch (You guys, their mobile app is my DOWNFALL- order your food on your phone, and pick it up minutes later without even having to talk to a real human) and I actually stuck around and ate outside because it was a beautiful day and I didn't have to hurry back to meetings.  There's a bunch of other restaurants and businesses around the Panera, which means great people watching.  During which, I saw the chicest girl walk by wearing an adorable scalloped light blue shirt dress and nude pumps.  She made me want that dress. 

Fast forward a few days and I was at the mall very hastily seeking a black pencil skirt.  Banana is my go-to for remotely professional clothes, so I checked there first and not only did I find the required black pencil skirt, but I found THE DRESS.  I had forgotten about it and never searched it out online, and there it was!  Meant to be 😉  and it was on sale.  Obviously, it went home with me.

Life Lately + Hello Monday Linkup


Taking up climbing | A couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a Groupon for an introduction to rock climbing class for a crazy good deal.  I've always wanted to learn, so I figured why not?!  Well, I got totally hooked.  Just last week I took the plunge and invested in my own gear, which consists of a harness, shoes, carabiner, and belay device... of course I'd like any activity that requires new shoes ;) 

Loving this new bronzer | Being pretty fair, I struggle to find a good bronzer that's not too dark or orange, and I don't like shimmer in my bronzer.  After a little research, and lots of Sephora swatching, I settled on this Tarte bronzer in 'Park Avenue Princess'.  I've been using it about a month now and I adore it!  It blends and builds really nicely, and it still looks brand new.  

Excited to wear these sandals | At work I find that sitting on conference calls = buying shoes online.  Whoops.  I absolutely love the shade of red of these sandals- the perfect orange red for summer.  They're really comfortable, and I think they'll be equally cute with cropped jeans or skirts and dresses.  

Mastering homemade pizza | The husband ordered this book on Amazon a couple weeks ago, and we've been reading through it together.  It provides so much insight on all different types of pizza, precise recipes, and details on exact brands of tools and ingredients to use.  The author waxes a little too poetic, sometimes verging on pretentious, but overall it's a super informative read.  We just tracked down the necessary flour for Neapolitan pizza, so we'll be making our first pizza in a few days.  

Shopping for destructed skinny jeans | Since a few Whole30s and starting up running again, all my go-to destructed jeans are a couple sizes big, and I miss having a good pair of truly skinny, destructed jeans.  I've acquired a few too many shoes this month though, so I have a very budget-friendly option on their way to me now.  Historically, my luck with Old Navy's jeans is very hit and miss- I'll report back if they're keepers!

Buying workout clothes | I've been squeezing in a run, climbing session, or BBG workout nearly every day, which I quickly realized makes for a LOT of laundry.  Because I hate laundry and love shopping, the logical solution was to pickup a few more sports bras, running shorts, and tanks.  I love Old Navy, Gap, and TJ Maxx's selection and pricepoint.  I document my usually mismatched workout outfits on Snap (roberts_jenna) on the regular.
