What I've Been Wearing Lately

Easy outfits for work

Hey there, friends! I've been sharing most of my daily outfits over on instagram lately and haven't really done an update here on the blog in a while. Since I don't have someone to take my pics for me, I've been embracing the mirror selfie and surprisingly, I kinda love it. I hate that instagram has become so filtered and not at all "real time" (or even real life, for that matter). That's what I initially loved about IG - the instant sharing. This year I wanted to get back to sharing more everyday (non-staged) moments and worrying less about posting at the right time of day or playing the algorithm game. And you know what? I love my feed more than I have in a long time. My creative brain still sees the world in instagrammable moments, but I've come to embrace that, too. I've found a balance between being in the moment and capturing it.

I'm always curious which apps everyone uses for editing their photos. My favorite is A Color Story by the sisters who created A Beautiful Mess. I've been using their latest filter release, Golden, paired with Flashes of Delight to create a soft, glowy feed. I think if you try it out you'll love it!

Ok, back to the focus of this post - sorry, I got way off track! The leggings that I'm wearing over and over again in the photos below are these from Old Navy - the mid-rise compression leggings. Hands down, these are the. best. leggings. ever. As you can see from my outfits, I wear them all the time! Also, these sneakers from FashionNova are a recent purchase that I have been loving. Listen, do not let the FN homepage throw you off (or some of the, ahem, questionable outfits). I have fallen down a rabbit hole and am in love with this store. Give it a shot, and I have no doubt you'll find something you love (like these hoops that I can't stop wearing). I finally bit the bullet recently and bought a pair of Timberland boots and I can't get enough. Do I feel a little J. Lo when I wear 'em? Yep, and I ain't one bit mad about it. I went with the light brown color (basically nude) - they just felt more me and I knew I would get more wear out of them than the original wheat color with the dark band at the top. I scooped mine up at an outlet store and I can't find the exact ones online - these are pretty close.

And if you didn't notice, I did a few little blog updates yesterday. I changed the photos behind my "life," "style," and "beauty" links, I updated my profile photo on my sidebar, swapped out winter items for a spring wish list just above this post, and added some pink to my navigation bar at the top. Just to freshen things up a bit! I still love this template from Pipdig and can't recommend them enough if you're on the hunt for an easily customizable blog template.

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend! xo, Julie
