I see it’s been a full 2 weeks since I posted! I did buy a red dress with birthday gift $$ and some more necessity type items (bra and house slippers). But I’ve been largely off shopping. Which is good. I wanted to shift to seasonal shops and this is an in between seasons time.
I am honestly thinking my best buys so far this year have been the 7 pack of black socks! LOL I wear them to work all the time and life is too short to wear worn out socks standing on your feet for 40 hours a week.
Speaking of being on your feet, late last month I signed up for a half marathon, kind of last minute. About a month to get ready. Been training as best I can with a full work load which equates to one short and one long run per week. This has understandably taken up much of my free time. Also thanking myself for buying a new running bra this year. Fiona sports bra
So, my practical, reality-based purchases have been the shining stars this year. I am still enjoying the ‘fun’ stuff when I can. My silver and black sandals have been on my feet quite a bit now that the weather has shifted. Melvi sandal Enjoying some of the looser, drapey silhouettes paired with some old favorites, too, to update what I have.
I’ve also gotten rid of more of the stuff that I was just hanging on to. I was finally ready. This leaves me in a good space to wear what I have left, on the few occasions I get out into the world out of uniform. I’m enjoying my favorite pieces instead of hemming and hawing between runners up.
I imagine my posts will continue to be a week or more apart. Unless I share more outfit pics I suppose. My shopping has just slowed to that point where I don’t have too much new to share. Which is great. Lately I’m more interested in balancing my work load, wine intake, and quality time with friends and my BF. Shifting focus.
