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!

Workout wear has become my summer uniform. It’s not because it’s comfy and wicks the sweat away, although that’s a perk, but it’s because if I don’t get dressed and showered for the day, then I keep thinking I’ll go work out. There’s my problem- thinking. Hahaha! So since I’m finding myself in workout wear a lot, I started looking for a few new “summer” workout wear items. And by “summer”, I mean new workout clothes and not what I’ve been wearing all winter. Hahahaha! Do you like my rationale? So when Nordstrom asked me to share women’s wear with you all, I knew exactly what I needed and wanted to share!

My favorite workout jacket was a little too hot for summer, so I picked up this one.

I’m loving the really soft knit at the elbows and…

…wrists. It’s super soft. I also like how lightweight it is, but that it still keeps me warm in restaurants, etc. It’s perfect to wear around town in Houston, and it will be perfect when we take a summer trip to Colorado.

Plus, since it’s made out of parachute material, I can throw it in my purse and the wrinkles come out in seconds. I also like that I can wrap it around my waist and it doesn’t add bulk. Shoot, I should have taken a picture of that. Double shoot, I just saw that they make it in white, and I like the white more.  HAHAHAHA! Oh, well. I’m wearing a small.

I’m also loving this new tank top. It’s high in the front. My sports bra cleavage isn’t very pretty… trust me. This top is one size fits all.

I also picked up this outfit. I’m telling you, I’m loving white on white this summer- even for workout wear!

For workout pants, I pretty much only wear ONZIE. I’ve tried other brands, but I always end up wanting to wear my ONZIEs. Now, I just search by ONZIE on the Nordstrom site when I want a new pair of workout leggings. I also picked up this pair. I’d been looking for a cute white tank for my white on white look, and this one is perfect. A special thanks to my friends Donna and Elizabeth for taking my dorky picture!

I had to include this picture because this is genius! One day, my friend Whitney walks into DEFINE, a work out studio, with this gigantic YETI cooler on her shoulder. When I inquired about it, she said she came straight from the grocery store because she couldn’t make it home in time, so she brought the cold stuff in. GENIUS! I think I would have just said to myself, “Well shoot, since I have to go to the grocery store this morning, I guess can’t work out.” Hello!!! Just put your groceries in a cooler and bring it in. This is precisely why I am constantly in workout wear and not working out. Thinking… not doing! Ha! Let’s get creative, Carly!
