Who Knew, Old Navy? Part One

This weekend, I had a moment of weakness and went a little bit bonkers in Old Navy. I’m going back to office life next week, and I wanted a few fresh pieces to add to my wardrobe, which at this point consists mostly of yoga pants. Also, I’m being super-healthy-frugal,…

I Rented the Runway, Everyone

And I survived. Last weekend, I attended a bachelorette party and a wedding (and a bridal shower, but that rental was a fail. 2 outta 3 ain’t bad), because welcome to June. Hanyways, I decided to break the seal and use Rent the Runway for the first time. I’ve spent…

Leggings for a Fancy Weekend

In about 3 hours, I’ll be heading down to Charlottesville, VA, for a classy bachelorette weekend of brewery tours and beer tasting. Since it’s also a holiday weekend, I have to admit, I want to be be comfy. I want to wear leggings all day, everyday. But at the same…
