Thursday's Threads

Happy Outfit Day! It's going to be nice here they say after a rainy start. I am still lacking in the riding outfit department. Sorry. But I do have a VERY boring running outfit to share! I'm sure you're excited... You see, it started raining when I was getting ready to go out for my run. So I was thinking I would just run on the treadmill in a sports bra and leggings. So I picked a really fun bra and boring black pants. But then it stopped raining and I wanted to go outside. And I will NOT wear just a bra in public! So my outfit got boring. Here it is:
I won't bore you further with close ups. The top and the bottoms came from Fabletics, which I actually really like their stuff. And if you're patient, you can get great deals in their sales.

Sneakers: Asics
I was really attached to my Mizunos for a LONG time, but they made a lot of changes to them in the last few seasons and they weren't really working for my feet anymore. So after the relay I ran last fall I stopped (with our 20% off from the race!) at the local running store to see about something new. I wound up with these Asics, and I like them quite a bit. I haven't done any real distance in them yet though, so we'll have to see how that goes eventually.

Ok, on to the fun stuff! Today's outfit!
Cacti! It's tough to see all the cacti here, but they'll be more visible in the closeups.

Top: Old Navy
If this tee reminds you of the avocado one.... that's because they're pretty much the same. It was a good day at Old Navy that day...

Belt: C4
C4 never lets me down when I need a good theme belt. I haven't turned the extra into a bracelet yet, but it's on the pile to get done.

Jeans: 1822 Denim
I don't often wear distressed jeans to work because I think that might be pushing over the dress code line. But eh. I did today. I wanted something cropped and these were what I dug up first.

Shoes: Soludos
I just think they make the cutest shoes! After having some previous pairs feel smallish, I sized up for this one. They're a tad too big honestly... But I have a desk job, so they'll be fine. I'll probably get an insole for them for next time.

Apparently Cacti are really big right now, because I keep finding all kinds of fun things adorned with them.
Phone case: Also unbranded
 I got this purse on the TJ Maxx website. It came with a chain to make it a crossbody and a short strap to use it as a wristlet/clutch. Or you can leave it strapless. I like options. The phone case came from Ebay.

Necklace: Kate Spade
 I think this thing is ADORABLE. It's really tiny, but the details are not lacking.

Arm Party!
 Lefty is donning a Tory Burch wrap bracelet in hunter green and my trusty apple watch.
Righty is mostly decked out in Tory Burch as well. The only non Tory piece is that cactus in the middle that I got on Ebay. The Tory bracelets I scored on Poshmark. I realized after I was at work that I have some cute cactus bracelets from Pura Vida. I guess you'll have to wait and see those next time I wear a cactus outfit. I'm sure the suspense is killing you.

And that's it today! Thoughts on Cacti? I enjoy them, they remind me of me. Interesting to look at, but not so nice if you touch them wrong.... Any favorites from today? Requests? Should I set up a poll and let you guys pick my theme?


  1. This is so ridiculously cute, I can't even. I also want to know- how many clutches/purses in various themes do you own?!?

    1. Thanks!
      Ummmm.... uncertain. There are many. Let's just leave it at that ;)

  2. Next week's challenge: cookies or space themes

    1. I don't really have cookies on their own... They're in the "junk food-sweets" category. But I could pull something together with a space theme!

  3. I love my Asics running shoes. I went on a multi-store shopping rage over Memorial Day weekend trying to find new sneakers that I didn't hate and those were the only ones that passed.

    1. I'm really liking these too! I'm not sure why I waited so long to try them? I guess because I was happy with the Mizunos?
