Happy Friday! I’m so excited for this weekend. My sister and I are going to South Boston’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, followed by the Hoodie Allen concert at the House of Blues, and it looks like we’ll have another bout of sunshine!
Almost as awesome as a sunny Saturday is this gorgeous skirt from The Limited. Between their versatile and professional clothing, awesome sales, and free two day shipping from ShopRunner, I always find myself filling in my wardrobe with Limited pieces. This skirt is gorgeous for pretty much anything, but I particularly had Easter in mind when I picked it up. I love a good dress, but I definitely prefer skirts. There’s so many more options to style a skirt different, that it feels like a building block for future outfits rather than just an outfit on its own-which is why I have so many skirts on constant rotation in my closet. This aquamarine color goes great with other cool tones, or a bright coral necklace and blush heels like I wore here-the magic of a good skirt is always in its versatility! I actually wore a skirt from The Limited for Easter last year with this same necklace in this post and it was absolutely perfect (similar purple skirt here and lace skirt here).

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
Today’s outfit is inspired directly by my Saturday routine. On the average Saturday, I like to stick to my morning routine as closely as possible. I wake up early and get to the gym right when they open, enjoy a longer workout, and then shower and get ready for my errand routine. This past Saturday I was craving comfort even more than usual, as my feet were killing me after getting back outside training for my upcoming race and walking around Boston in heels a bit too much, definitely not my brightest moment. I try to look somewhat presentable on my weekend errand runs because I know I’ll wind up seeing someone I know, or someone I want to know, and wearing something as simple as jeans instead of yoga pants usually makes all the difference in my eyes.
My checklist this weekend included a warm sweater so I didn’t have to carry around a coat with me and comfortable shoes for the aforementioned unhappy feet. After I crossed those two off the list I honestly just looked for something fun to brighten up the outfit, which wound up being this necklace I got at The Limited last year. I’ve never understood why people choose to go to the grocery store in sweat or yoga pants when it takes just as much effort to put on jeans in the morning, and that simple change can make a world of difference. Throwing on a bright necklace or scarf really just adds to the image of effort, while still being really comfortable. I’ll have no problems walking around and seeing people I know without mascara on and wearing street sneakers like I am here as long as I have jeans on, but if I went to Target in my gym clothes I’d wind up being so embarrassed I’d run through the store as fast as possible and forget half the things I needed. Not like that’s ever happened before. or anything…
