yet another time management recap
nichole posted another recap of the summit presentation, complete with an adorable list-containing photo! there are also some good tips in her comment section, so check it out.

i also found this professional photo on the arnold bread facebook page:

woah. not sure i’m loving this angle . . . am i about to sneeze?
fashion friday
recently, josh and i decided to watch our budget a little bit. fortunately, my favorite splurge company has played along nicely, with sale offerings that would make any anthroholic smile. while there are some styles that are so popular that they never make it to the sale section, this seems to be the exception rather than the rule these days. wait long enough, and it will be half price!? i am definitely patient (and practical) enough to play that game.

here are a few nicely marked-down picks from the latest offerings:

art school sweater, $50 from $88. lovely for that weekend grocery trip or casual fall brunch.
the secret garden tank is still pricey for a light piece at $40 (from $68), but i think it has the potential to be special.
throw a cardigan over the shifting feathers dress, $50 from $98, and you’ve got yourself a smashing bargain outfit that goes from work to after-hours
while $99 isn’t cheap for jeans, it’s pretty good for joe’s jeans, here in provocateur fit/ryder wash.
i already snagged this preptastic split diamonds cardigan in navy
one thing i love about anthro is that they are not afraid to feature multiple shapes and silhouettes. some of the items above have a a bit of a throwback look to them — but i know what tends to work on my body, and i’m okay if it doesn’t fall in line with the absolute latest trendy thing. this is not to say i don’t enjoy rocking the skinny jeans/pants once in a while, but if i’m honest with myself, there are probably other styles that flatter more.

fashion Q&A!
what is your favorite place to shop? and how do you deal with current trends that might not be the most flattering cuts for you? finally, any items on your must-have list for fall?

fashion is fun! let’s discuss.



workout: 5 miles on the ‘hard’ TM. i swear, this one is calibrated SO differently than the one at the gym! i did 1.5 miles @ 9:13/mi pace, 2 miles @ 8:35/mi pace (which felt like 8:00/mi pace) and 1.5 miles @ 9:13/mi pace, all 0.5% incline.

the improv kitchen: it’s not that i didn’t menu plan this week; it’s just that i didn’t feel like FOLLOWING my plans for some odd reason. very unlike me, but it’s been fun to just combine ingredients without a recipe for a change.

local corn/tomato/basil and mozzarella salad with balsamic vinaigrette; grilled zucchini; chicken-apple sausage
board prep: 1/2 fluids/electrolytes chapter. i’ll be back on schedule after today!

    I&#39m really not a big shopper. Most of my clothes are from Old Navy or Target. *embarrassed face*
