Carly from Thirty Something Fashion


I'm so happy to feature a really wonderful fashion blogger and small business owner of a personal styling and box service, Carly, from Thirty Something Fashion (TSF)! Don't know Carly?  Well, let's meet her! 1. You have been a stylist for many years. How has it changed since you first started out? My first retail job in the formal wear department of Bloomingdales had me styling women for really amazing moments in their life like weddings and galas.  I adored the fantasy of it all….limitless budgets and over the top dresses with beads, sequins and trains.  Ahhhh!!!! As much as I loved that job, when I moved on to boutique management things were so much more fulfilling.  I saw clients over and over again…some of them would make weekly stops.  It was relationships and … [Read more...]

Runner Style


Guys, this weekend was it. It was all about runner style and having fun.  After months of training, I did it.  My first ten mile race!  I have done half-marathons before but for some reason I felt that this one was bigger. The George Washington Parkway Classic was one I have wanted to run for years and it was everything I wanted it to be and more. I was nervous about this race. I haven't run that far in a few years.  Training in the winter can be rough and that was a majority of my time on the pavement.  When I hit four miles in training I hit a wall.  My body was too tired from every day life.  I started taking Thrive supplements (which I was totally not a believer of) and immediately noticed a difference in my abilities while running, during recovery and afterwards.  I don't think I … [Read more...]

All the Pretty Flowers

I am not into a lot of prints. That is of no surprise to anyone, is it? I think it was hearing that as a kid and then teen I was too small in stature to carry off any type of print from stripes to all the pretty flowers and any type of loud color.  I'm serious.  So breaking into the floral trend, which is so stunning in spring was hard, but I love it too much to ignore.  I'm also co-hosting with Angela from Reason to Dress, so please check her out and join in!  Don't we all need a dress this flowy and fabulous to make us feel beautiful? Paired with simple jewelry … [Read more...]

Working For It


There comes a time before every race that I know I have to bite the bullet and actually run the full distance of the race. A practice run, really.  Even if I know I have accumulated those miles before or I've come just a mile under I still have to physically run that full distance to get my head in the right place. That up there?  Bane and me running hard on Monday. Because ready or not my 10 miles loomed large and had to be done even if it sucked up more than half of my morning. Because... Source: How I feel mid-run. While I wanted to wear this cute tank I picked up this winter the weather still wasn't ready for it.  Maybe spring will really be sprung from the evil clutches of Old Man Winter by this weekend as I start to taper off in my mileage.

A Little Wine & Design


One of the things I love about my neighborhood is that we hold a lot of events.  It can be family-oriented one month, a guys night or in the case of this past weekend a little time with friends, neighbors and new connections brought together by wine and a little bit of painting. It turned cold earlier that day with the winds whipping around making me forget the idea of running 8 miles and instead focus on being warm and comfortably cute. I brought out the cocoon sweater again and paired it with my gray denim and nude flats for new take on old favorites. The final product.  Warmer days are ahead! RIGHT?!
