What to Pack for Colorado

I’m headed to Colorado this week to celebrate my aunt’s 70th birthday! When we went to Colorado as a family for the first time last year, I was completely unprepared. I packed regular everyday outfits. Wrongo! I ended up buying workout clothes from the gift shop. I wasn’t complaining, but my husband might have been ūüėú… Anyway, I should have known, since most of what you do in Colorado consists of excercise- hiking, water rafting, zip lining, mountain biking, etc. But this time, I’m prepared! Here’s what I packed. Well, for the daytime, anyway.

I’ve long admired my friends who come up with cute workout wear outfits. Frankly, I don’t feel like I’m very good at it. I basically rely on fun leggings and coordinating sports bras. Then I’ll just wear one of my favorite black¬†backless tank tops. I guess it’s my workout wear formula! Although, I am excited to add my new workout jacket and red tennis shoes to the mix!

If you’d like to follow along while I’m in Colorado, head to Instagram. Otherwise, I’ll do a trip recap when I get home.

Happy Summer!

The Top I Can’t Stop Wearing

Madewell Top

You know when you buy something and it just works? It works so well that you can’t stop wearing it? Plus, you keep seeing different people, so why hassle trying to find another outfit? Ok, so I saw the same person two out of the five days straight I’ve worn the top, but it’s a good friend, so who cares, right? Anyway, here’s why this top works- it’s cool, it’s loose, it’s adjustable and because it’s knit, it doesn’t show my sweat. Plus, depending on where I’m going, I can get away with just wearing a bandeau strapless bra with it! Ummmmm, and it’s darling with my new white skirt¬†and white shorts.

This is how I wore it to a swim meet. Ok, I didn’t feel comfortable in my bandeau bra for that event, so I put on my favorite strapless bra. Oh, and I was handing out ribbons, so I opted for shorts, but my white denim skirt looks cuter. I didn’t even have to sloppy tuck!

Thanks for all your comments on my recent posts! Last week, my AC went out, the cable went out, my dog got sick, and my son had a double ear infection, so I apologize for not replying sooner! #summerdays Happy summer, guys!
