Moody Style: Anchored Down

I just got back in town from a quick trip to Dallas, TX for a work meeting.  I’m literally home for a night with enough time to unpack and repack for another trip.  Traveling for work was fun and a little glamorous the first few times I had to do it.  However, the unending parade of hotel rooms, living out of my suitcase, and standing in long lines for airport security is quickly losing its charm.  I can see how people can get worn down from doing this for too long.  The only way to maintain my sanity is coming home and sleeping in my own bed even if it’s just for one night.  I love feeling anchored down with some normalcy and the comforts of home.  It always perks me back up and gets me going for the next trip. Do any of you travel for work or pretty often? How you do recoup after a long trip? Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: Flowers and Stripes

This has to be one of my all time favorite outfits so far this year.  I fell in love with the Punk Floral print when J.Crew brought it out last year.  But I wasn't able to grab any of the pieces except for the bathing suit.  So I was elated when the company released a newer version of this print at J.Crew Factory.  As soon as I could make it out to my local store, I jumped at the chance to grab this skirt (here) and this sweater (here).  I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty happy that I can find some of J.Crew’s sold out pieces at the Factory from time to time.  Have any of you snagged some of J.Crew’s best sellers at the Factory?  What have been your favorite purchases so far?  Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: Coral and Lace

Hiya everyone!  I hope that you all had an awesome holiday weekend.  I really didn’t do too much over the past three days.  I stayed pretty close to home and ate my way through the weekend with lots of barbecue.  I had the most pretty amazing BBQ ribs that I'm still dreaming about.  I’m so bummed that they're all gone.  Other than eating, I managed to make it out to farmer’s market on Saturday and bought some fresh veggies and homemade soap.  I also made it out to the stores for a little retail therapy.  I bought a few things from J.Crew (like this and this) and Banana Republic (a couple pieces from their limited edition Marimekko collection) since they were both having great sales this weekend.  I also ran a few miles each day to help me feel better about all of the food that I ate over 3 days.  Did you all enjoy your weekend?  Did you go shopping?  I would love to hear what you did or what you bought.  Just let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: Day or Night

I hope that you all are having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend so far.  What have you guys been up to this weekend?  I did a little shopping today, went to a farmer’s market and got a pedicure with a good friend of mine.  I love lazy Saturdays.  Anyways, here’s a quick post of an outfit that I wore a couple of weekends ago to a barbecue birthday party.  I figured that this J.Crew dress would be perfect for the occasion; it’s a great dress for day or night.  I was so excited when I scored this dress for less than $30.  Don’t you love it when that happens?  Have you scored any good deals from J.Crew lately?  Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: A Scattering of Dots

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m so excited that we only have two days left in the week before the Memorial Day Weekend.  Do you have any plans this weekend? I don’t have any plans yet, but I’m really looking forward to having some down time at home.  I’m hardly ever home since I travel so much for work.  As a result of my travels, my apartment is in serious needs of a little TLC.  The only thing that I have scheduled this weekend is a 5k race on Memorial Day.  I haven’t ran in a race since March, so Monday morning should be interesting.  I would like to make it to the beach at least once this weekend and I would love to find a barbecue to crash.  If anyone’s barbecuing  just let me know - I just may show up.

Moody Style: Black and White

Hope that you all are having a good week so far.  I’ve been super busy at work lately and I haven’t had a chance to post in a while.  So, I’m taking a quick break right now to share this outfit.  Sorry that I’m keeping this post pretty brief.  I’ll try to write much more next time.  All the best!

Current Mood – Top 3

It’s been a while since I’ve posted my top 3 items from Anthropologie, but it’s finally back. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been shopping in the store as frequently as I had in the past.  There were a few months that I just wasn’t inspired by the clothes that they offered.  There were a few pieces that caught my eye here and there, but that was about it – until now.  I’ve been pulled back into the Anthro fold after receiving the May Lookbook in the mail.  I don’t know if it’s the anticipation of the summer season or the store has stepped up their game a little bit.  Whatever it is I’m in love with the store again. I’m also loving the collaboration between Anthropologie and BaubleBar.  How pretty is this Seastone Necklace? Anyways, here are my top 3 items from Anthropologie that I love this month. Do any of you have any favorites that you can’t live without this month?  What’s on your wish list?  Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: Neon Fiesta

Happy Monday and Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!  I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend.  Did any of you have any plans today for Cinco de Mayo? My plans only involved going to Cantina Laredo and eating great food and lots of chip and guacamole.  So after work, I made sure I worked out for about 2 hours so I wouldn’t feel so guilty about all of the food I planned to eat.  But all of my working out didn’t really help.  I still felt a little guilty afterwards.  I know that I’ll be running off my food at some point tomorrow afternoon.  So how did you spend Cinco de Mayo? Let me know in the comments.
