Summer + Dress = Instant Outfit!

You guys....How is it almost July!?  The fact that my kids have just finished school makes the summer feel like it is flying by.  I have been wearing a lot of dresses this summer because they are so easy. And to quote my youngest son, "Mom, I just realized, you have a LOT of dresses!"  Yep...and shoes, and clothes in general.  It's a problem.  Anyway,  I have a LOT of summer dresses and I am dedicating this post to them!  I just love that you have one piece of clothing and just throw it on with some cute sandals for an instant outfit.   
A recent purchase that I bought from one of my favorite althetic-wear sites, title nine is this cute dress pictured below.  It is called the Shready Dress .  It is actually made by Patagonia and organic cotton with a hint of stretch. I ordered an extra small and the fit is perfect.  (It has a built in bra but I still wear a strapless with it cause...ya know.)  I really want it in the other color but they are out of my size. Another plus is it is one of the less-expensive dresses that they offer.  I love it with a pair of metallic sandals (I wore Lilly Pulitzer for Target pineapple sandals.)


Athleta has a great selection of stretchy, t-shirt material dresses. 
I already featured this one in a previous post - but it deserves another highlight, it's so great. Here is a link to one similar. 
If you are more into the Boho look - I love the dresses from LUCKY BRAND. I got the dress below last summer and wear it at least once a week! Here's a link to one that is similar.


From Ann Taylor, I recently purchased this striped poplin dress will be great for church or other summer events. It is faux wrap top that is so flattering for all shapes! 
I own several dresses from LOFT and currently eyeing this oneThe dress below is from LOFT last year. Also striped and has pockets, which I love!




I could go on and on, but that's all I've got time for today! Happy summer dress shopping!

New running socks review!

Today I tested out abother pair of procompresion socks.  I have always worn Feetures and still will but these will be my new go-to pair...luckily they came in a two pack!  They are seamless and so soft and have special areas that are more cushioned (right where I normally get blisters). I am excited to try them out on a longer run!



Ragnar Richmond Recap!

First Ragnar Trail relay is in the books and boy, was it an adventure!  Notice I said, "first"...I had originally thought I was "one and done" with these things (as I am with the full marathon) however, I think I could enjoy another go of one. Definitely a fan of the trail version and not interested in a road Ragnar though (the thought of sleeping in a van horrifies me more than camping!).  I think I need to wait til 2019 (or even 2020 ) though - not ready to train for another in 2018!  Gotta let the paint dry on this one...So, here's a detailed recap of our adventure:

Thursday 3pm-ish: 4 of us drove down to Richmond with all of the camping gear in order to set up our site and get checked in.  This was a great plan because we were able to scout out a site and set up before the rest of the team arrived the following morning. Our start time was one of the earlier times on Friday (10am) so we didn't want to be worried about setting up camp and then running our…

Swimsuit roundup

Just got back from a glorious week with the family at the beach.  It was really what I needed in order to re-charge my batteries before the upcoming school year begins next month. It is always the hightlight of our summer and really our entire year because we get to spend a whole week together with family and extended family.  My youngest son was so upset for it to end that he nearly cried himself to sleep last night. (He's 13 now!)In honor of our beach trip I seem to always buy a new bathing suit....with the exception of this year! I didn't buy any new suits but managed to have a different one to wear each day. Thought I would do a bathing suit roundup of my suits and if they're not availbable anymore I linked some selections of suits that are similar in style. First off is this triangle suit from last year that I purchased from Target (linked to similar style)- which I topped with the Michael Stars Ruana from the summer 2017 FabFitFun box. (By the way, so many cool things…
