Well, another week is upon us. This is actually my last week at work. That’s right, I’m retiring at the ripe old age of 24. Well, until around December 15th that is, I assume I will have my hands full after that.
Take a look at the fly threads we’re rocking today. I’m using this lingo because we tried to look sultry in our poses this week. It did not bode well for us.
Button-up: Express|Pants: Express|Belt: Express. Y’all.
Teal Tank: Target Maternity|Gray tank underneath: Old Navy (NOT MATERNITY!)|Maternity Jeans: Old Navy|Watch: Iron Man training watch that was a birthday gift from my training partner dad! A lot of use it’s getting these days…
Necklace: Target. When I bought this, I thought it was just a good basic gold pendant necklace. I have been asked multiple times since what I won a gold medal for. I usually respond with “Cross Country Skiing.”
Earrings: Gift from my friend Mia. I think she got them in Bolivia.
Shoes: Toms that I got for free from a friend of a friend because I was the only person she knew who wore a size 7.5 (what!?) and they didn’t fit her. Woo hoo!
That does it for today. Join me next week for round 3!
New Segment alert!
I’m a big fan of Pinterest. I have it. I love it. I use it. (Follow me! There’s a handy button up there! To the right. Yeah there!)
We all know that Pinterest can turn into a dreamworld if we let it though, amiright? Everyone looks wonderful and is always edited to perfection. If I were a crafter, which we all know I’m not, I would feel all kinds of depressed after looking at beautiful Pinterest creations.
So, in efforts to show what a real family looks like on regular days of the week, I am starting this segment. Sometimes you will catch us wearing cute clothes. Sometimes you will catch us in our PJs. Always you will catch us in relatively cheap clothes, because homegirl doesn’t pay full-price for stuff. It’s the Alex way.
Shirt: Express|Jeans: Express|Phoebe: photobomb
Shoes: Vans-probably from Journey or something
Black Ruffle Dress: Jane.com|Leggings: uhhhh Rue 21?
Necklace: Gift from my Mimi I think
Earings: Smaller ones are always the cheap card packs from Claire’s!|Bottom ones were a Christmas gift from my sister.

That’s it guys! Join me next week for volume 2.
