What I Wore: Colorado Recap

Colorado Recap

There is so much good stuff in this post- my new favorite top to wear with leggings, my favorite backless workout tank, and the power of a pretty white top in a wardrobe. Plus, I’ve updated the links to the items that were sold out! I had so much fun in Colorado, but it’s good to be home! Am I becoming a homebody? Ha! Oh, and thanks to all of you who followed along on Instagram. That was fun! I felt connected to you all, even while I was away!

This is what I wore on the 4th of July. It also happened to be our travel day. Can we just talk about how great of a color combination red, white and blue is? When in doubt, red, white and blue your outfit.

As soon as we got to Colorado, we went on a hike. It’s a good thing I had my tennis shoes on. Truth be told, that was no mistake – I knew we would be doing some kind of activity as soon as we got there. I tried to be prepared.

It felt good to get dressed for dinner after being in workout clothes most of the time. If you ask me, the accessories made this outfit.

I wore my favorite backless tank almost every day on the trip. After staring at the top of the girl working out in front of me and searching for the brand the entire workout, I finally figure out where it was from! I headed straight to the store and purchased four of these tops! They were perfect for Colorado!

I had another learning on this trip. When one packs for Colorado, not only do you need workout wear, but you need a backpack. There is something about going hiking while carrying a purse that doesn’t quite work. Ha!

I was so excited to get “dressed up”  and go on an “adult dinner” that I curled my hair!

This is the same outfit as the previous picture, but this picture shows the power of a pretty white top in your wardrobe. My outfit is pretty regular (jeans and sandals), but what makes this outfit is the pretty white top.

Here are a few pretty white tops:

I found the best new top for leggings! It covers both front and back! I sloppy tucked it, but it covers completely when untucked! 😉 I found it in black, and I linked it on Instagram. Then it sold out, but I found it again! Updated link below!

We took my son to The Lion King for his birthday. This is what I wore. Later, we took him to play video games, so I changed into my red tennis shoes.

That’s my Colorado recap by outfits! If you all want to hear more about my trip, like recommendations, what we did in a camera roll type post, let me know. I couldn’t figure out if a post like that would be like a boring slideshow of your relative’s trip. Ha!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts this week. Let me know if you guys have any special requests!

      Hi! I, also, always go for black, grey and white. I did pick up the pink color, but I’ll have to say, I’m wearing my black and grey tanks a ton more! Yes, they run tts.
