Saturday Six: Just Do It

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. These posts are not sponsored, but some links may be referral/curator links. Links on where to purchase are always included in the captions!

We recently stopped at an outlet mall, and I found myself resisting the urge to purchase everything at the Nike store. Whenever I go clothes shopping, I should really be building up my work wardrobe, but all I ever want to buy are sweatpants. The sweats at the Nike store felt SO insanely soft! Sadly I left empty handed, but here’s a roundup of a few things I’ve got my eye on…

nike1
I love the color of these rose gold joggers! Available from Nike.com.

 

nike2
Cute and comfortable: the best of both worlds. I could see myself lounging all day in this Nike sweatshirt dress. Available from Nike.com.

 

 

nike3
I love the colorblocking on these leggings! Great for working out, running errands, or just hanging around the house. Available from Kohls.

 

nike4
Are you noticing a trend in color here? I love pink but I’m drawn to everything gray! These look so comfortable! Available from Nike.com.

 

nike5
I’ve been dreaming about this jumpsuit since I spotted it at an outlet at the beginning of the summer. I keep waiting for it to go on sale. It feels so soft! Available from Nike.com. I also like the romper version and the sweatpants.

 

nike6
Here, enjoy some color. I love the retro vibe of these turquoise and black sweatpants. Can sweatpants qualify as workwear? Available from Nike.com.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Ice Cream Castle in the sky…

Hey friends! I thought I’d do one more summery Saturday Six before diving headfirst into Halloween. 🙂

I’ve got ice cream on the brain. The above image doesn’t really have anything to do with this post other than the fact that I love Morris Day and The Time and it’s a great album. Maybe listen to it and eat ice cream? Or check out this week’s picks!

icecream1
This ice cream cone pin from Wildflower Co looks like a great addition to my denim jacket.

 

icecream2
I saw this cute little pencil pouch at Target the other day and had to fight the urge to buy it. I can find a use for it, right? I also love these pens!

 

icecream3
Speaking of Target, did you know they did a collaboration with the Museum of Ice Cream on a children’s clothing line? Why oh why couldn’t it be adult sized? I love everything! I think the closest I can get to purchasing is with these sprinkles and gummy bear socks.

 

icecream4
Speaking of cute, I love this ice cream tee and leggings pajama set from ASOS!

 

icecream5
I love this ice cream printed blouse from ModCloth! It’d be perfect for work!

 

icecream6
These are out of my price range, but I can still dream. Rommy de Bommy makes the most amazing food-themed purses and jewelry, like this ice cream cone handbag. Check out her Etsy shop here!

 

I hope you’re eating some ice cream this weekend!

Tell me: Do you prefer hard or soft serve? Chocolate or vanilla? Sprinkles or nuts?

Saturday Six: Happy Camper

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. Some links may be referral/curator links.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love camping! We’ve done two camping trips so far this summer and have one coming up in a couple of weeks. I’ve also been feeling nostalgic for my summer camp days. I blame it on watching camp-themed movies. My love for camping and this post on Summer Camp Style by Say Yes inspired me to do my own camp-themed round-up. So pull out your friendship bracelets, find the marshmallows, hike up your shorts, and get ready for your own camping adventure!

camp1
I love an A frame! Get psyched for your camp out with this cute tee from Camp Brand Goods.

 

camp2
I’ve been looking for the perfect enamel mug, and I think I’ve finally found it! Now I’m dreaming of sitting by the fire and sipping coffee in this Happy Camper Mug from Camp Brand Goods.

 

camp3
Are you on the fanny pack train yet? I’m convinced I’ve brought them back (ha). I’ve been wearing them for years. They are so convenient for hiking or at events when you don’t want to lug around a purse. The Dope Dopp Kit by Poler looks perfect for adventuring.

 

camp4
These American Apparel Interlock Running Shorts are a true callback to ’70s camp days! If you’re sleeping on the ground, you might as well be comfortable.

 

camp5
Aside from dry shampoo, hats are your best friend while camping. I’m a fan of “dad” style hats (is that weird?). I like this plain black hat from Adidas, but if you can score a vintage trucker hat, even better.

 

camp6
Sitting at the top of my wishlist is this great tee from CAMP clothing. They have a lot of great retro-inspired items. I don’t think I need to explain why I love this tee.

Happy camping!

Tell me: Did you ever go to camp when you were younger? Do you like camping?

Let’s go to the mall…

I’m not really a big shopper. I guess I should clarify that point–I’m not really a big mall shopper. I don’t think a week goes by where I don’t have an Amazon package showing up. I love going to thrift stores and digging through the racks, and I make up excuses to go to Target (oh, we’re out of soap? I might as well peruse the clearance racks…).

I typically avoid the mall, though. Gone are the days when my husband and I would go wander the mall just for something to do. Now it seems like the only time we go is when I order something online and do a store pick up, ha. There’s one exception: OUTLET MALLS.

We love outlet malls. Maybe it relates back to our love of thrift shopping. Something about finding a good deal is just so satisfying.

We hit up the outlet mall over Memorial Day weekend, and I thought I’d share some of my buys.

I finally bought a swimsuit! It’s so awkward trying on swimsuits in stores. I had to go on a little faith that it would look better at home (it did). I really like the color and retro vibe. Suit is available at Zumiez.
jacket
I have a bad habit of buying clothes out of season. It was nearly 90 degrees the day we went to the outlet mall, so of course we picked up some new pants and jackets. That said, this Levi’s hooded jacket/sweatshirt combo is the most comfortable thing I’ve ever put on–and it was 40% off!

Another Levi’s buy. I’m pretty sure this is the first pair of pre-ripped jeans I’ve ever bought. I normally wouldn’t go for the style, but these were freakin’ $9 and fit like a dream.

And yet Levi’s store find. I don’t normally buy vintage repro styles (I’d rather try to find the real thing), but the glitter text and retro feel of this shirt won me over. Plus, I think it was less than $7!
img_2339
This dress was originally from Target, but I found it at a thrift store at the outlet mall. The trifecta!
img_2245
This hat is actually from Walmart of all places! I wasn’t happy about going there but I was happy to find this cute summer hat for $10. Expect to see me in this hat at the beach all summer.
img_2243
I’ve been stalking these sandals for a couple months now and finally pulled the trigger. I remember that slides were big when I was in middle/high school. I didn’t think I’d like them again, but something about the color blocking of these won me over. They are also crazy comfortable. It’s nice to have a pair of shoes to, well, slide on quickly in the summer.
img_2209
Last but not least, I had to buy this air freshener for my car. How could you not?? It actually smells like pancakes!


Tell me:
Do you prefer outlet malls or regular malls?

Saturday Six: JUMP JUMP!

Each weekend, I’ll share six cool finds. Some links may be referral/curator links.

Jumpsuits and I are having a moment. They are comfortable and can be easily dressed up or down. I have casual ones for hanging at home, but I also love that the nicer ones make you look put together without much effort.
