Fashion Finds & Favorite Links

 

On Wednesday I mentioned that I took a little break from blog work in order to do other things. Of course other things included shopping.

fashion finds

I am in love with the Align Crops from lululemon. There aren’t enough words to describe how well they fit and how soft they are. The Align Crops are designed for yoga, not for running but I consider them casual wear for when you want a great pair of leggings that look good and make you feel awesome. Yes, I do think they are worth the investment.

If you are looking for the perfect t-shirt this summer season, I recommend the new vintage cotton t-shirts from J Crew. They fit me really well and have a nice shape. They aren’t long t-shirts but have a good cut and the perfect sized cap sleeve that isn’t too capped but isn’t long. The sleeve of a t-shirt needs to hit your arm in the right spot in order to be flattering. Try it on and then get ALL THE COLORS.

Can we talk slides for a minute? Gosh how I wish my slides and sandals from 1999 had lasted me since the styles have returned! Everyday sandals though don’t last very well season to season since we wear them into the ground with our bare feet so I try to let the old pairs go after a while in favor of new ones.

Anyway.

If you have seen the cute FENTY Puma by Rihanna slides with the pink bow, you can actually spend a little less and go with the TOP SHOP Halo Bow Slide. They are the same thing! The only difference, I think, is that the Top Shop pair is not as pink. From what I have read about them in comparison, they are basically the same and you can save some money.

Now, can someone please find me the cheaper version of these CHANEL slides? There was a time in my life (hello, early 20’s) that I would totally rationalize this purchase but right now, I just can’t bring myself to do it. Where is Kate Spade when I need her?! Surely she can replicate these CHANEL slides for a more acceptable and rational price for a sandal.

Eating Like An Athlete: Why I Eat EverythingI always appreciate what Laura has to say. As a meatless eater, I can even appreciate this conversation of NOT eliminating food groups. It’s really something to consider if you are currently not eating certain food groups. Maybe just once in a while isn’t that big of a deal, you know?

    Is it too soon to buy another pair of lulu crops even though I just got a pair a few weeks ago? I am always on the hunt for comfortable sandals, since most of the ones I have from past years will no long work. Im hoping for a warm and sunny weekend here! Have a great weekend!

    I am a bit of a hippie and live in my Birks. I’m not a fashion person at all, not because I don’t care but because I’m simply not wired that way and whenever I try to do something fashionable, I end up looking like a clown and feeling super awkward. I’m okay with it though.

    Cute stuff!

    I am running a 1/2 this weekend in San Luis Obispo, CA. The weather should be amazing, I’m just hoping that this dumb sinus infection doesn’t hold me back too much.

    It’s supposed to be 98 on Wednesday next week. What the heck, spring??
