Free People Tank & Bralette




This is the time of year for layering. When Brian saw this outfit, he said "Yep, this is the 'skipping-through-meadows' free spirited hippie Courtney that I know." I don't find this look super bohemian, but the comment made me smile. 



I'm loving the contrast between the blueish/purple with the black! This long cardigan is from Loft, but I received it several years ago from a friend, so it is no longer available. Same with these pants...I bought them a few weeks ago on sale at Abercrombie & Fitch. I'll link some similar styles below! 



It's just not realistic for me to only wear "new" things as a blogger. Even if I had the funds for it, I wouldn't want to! Isn't the point of buying something because you love it and want to wear it for years to come?! I can't imagine how crowded my closet would be (and how measly my bank account would be!) if I was only wearing new things. I am baffled at the bloggers who are always showcasing brand new things...I'm just like, "but where do you store it all?" Or, "Don't you get sad only wearing it 1-2 times?" All of this to say that my cardigan and pants are old and no longer available, and you'll find me re-wearing things time and time again on my blog. 



I've always been a fan of Free People, but they can definitely be pricey. I love that this flowy tank is only $20! It runs large so size down. I am normally a medium, but sized down to a small. It is slightly cropped, so be aware of that. I'll be living in this with some high waisted shorts this summer.


The bralette I'm wearing is also by Free People. It looks so pretty layered underneath just about anything! 

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

I turned 29 back in February and made a fun little goal/bucket list of 30 things I want to do/experience/grow in before my 30th birthday. Some are actual big goals, others are just small fun things I want to try. Some of these I've already tackled (like running my first marathon, yay!), some of these I'm in the process of doing, and others I have not started yet. I just thought this would be a fun, but realistic "bucket list" of 30 things to do before February of next year. If you have anything on your bucket list, I'd love to hear!

Thanks for reading!

The Coziest Tee You Need In Your Closet Right Now




As a busy mom, when I'm not at work, this is typically the kind of outfit you'll find me in. When I tried on this top at Express a few months ago, I was immediately sold. Not only is it drapey and flattering, but the material is incredibly soft. It feels like being wrapped up in a blanket...so besides being tempted to crash and take a nap at 1:00 on a Wednesday afternoon, it is amazing. ;) 



I paired it with an older style of Zella leggings (similar style linked below) and my pink Adidas flashbacks. The style is longer in the back so if you like to have your butt covered, it's perfect! 



I've also paired this with jeans and booties as well as high waisted black pants and dressy flats. Five gold stars for versatility. Basics are so faithful like that! If this top was a number on the Enneagram, it would be a loyal 6. 



I also wore my Free People bralette underneath. The neckline is looser so you can drape it over your shoulders if you have a cute detail that you want to highlight. See? Versatile. 

Okay...being wrapped in this cozy tee is too much. Going to nap now. Just kidding...kinda.
