Life Lately

After not posting for a while I always want to start off with an apology, which is weird since this is MY blog and I'm entitled to post whenever the heck I want to, but nevertheless inconsistency is…well, annoying. So I am sorry! Needless to say I've been very busy this past week with finishing up school (wrote 4 papers in one week) and a few other events. Let me take this opportunity to fill you in on the fun parts :)

First off, last weekend I completed my second half marathon! That's 13.1 miles for those of you non-runners out there. The race was in Door County, WI which is charming little area that made for some beautiful running scenery. Even though this route was picturesque, the course was ALL hills which was quite a challenge since I'm used to tackling maybe one hill per run. I somehow managed to complete the run five minutes faster than last year despite the terrain!! It certainly helped having my teammates & friends running as well and my parents & boyfriend there to cheer me on ♥

The second worth-mentioning event that took place last week was at Gap Mayfair Mall. Fellow Milwaukeean and style blogger, Molly, of Heart of a Blonde and I were so lucky for the opportunity to host Gap's Styld.by event to kick off their brand new Miami Pop collection. It was a blast helping out customers with style tips while putting together outfits for their upcoming vacations and Mother's Day! There was also a DJ, hor d'oeuvres, and refreshments for the evening. Gap sure knows how to throw a party ;) Despite all of that, I'd probably say that my favorite part of the event was getting to know Molly a little more and talking about blogging/fashion in between customers (something most people in my life are still trying to figure out). Check below for details on our favorite pieces from Gap's collection! And please ignore the quality of the following photos…some were swapped via social media and were taken with our phones (sorry!)
