For the past three months, one of my friends has been living in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She flew home yesterday and we grabbed lunch and gabbed like little birds. We got our nails done and did a bit of boutique jewelry shopping. I picked up a new bangle by Stella and Dot. It’s made by the same company that also makes J. Crew’s bangles, a little tidbit the cashier at Therapy mentioned when I purchased it.
There is something so polished about having your nails done. I’m not sure exactly how, but my outfits feel that much more pulled together when I have cute nails. Illogical, I know. But it’s every little bit true.
I also had fun wearing my new J. Crew flats that I bought a few weeks back. Aren’t they adorable?
I have the gold capped ones and they fit so perfectly!
I had been wanting to bust them out on a fun occasional but nothing had really fit the bill. So, I wore them the whole day and they didn’t give me any blisters, which was surprising since my other J.Crew wedges gave me insane ones earlier this summer.
These are the ones that gave me blisters, but in Navy!
Have you guys ever heard of a Color Run? It is a 5K run done in a variety of major cities.
But the epic part about this race is that they have Color Zones, where volunteers throw colored cornstarch at runners dressed in white. These Zones help runners determine how far along in the race they are AND make for a ridiculous amount of fun and silly photos! Like this one:
Or this one:
The color in his beard is spectacular.
I have always wanted to run in one since I saw a race in Seattle, but they only come to San Francisco about once a year. The last few years the timing has just not work out, BUT I just registered for the October 26th race. So, this means I need to get my butt in gear and get some running in.
Anyone have any suggestions on good songs to run to?
My name is Sandy, and this is my new blog. I adore my roommate’s two Labradors, the color blue, and the smell of freshly washed sheets. I dance around my room in my new clothes, and plan life with colorful sticky notes and my moleskine. This is a blog about the things I do, and the craziness that comes with being a girl in California a little too in love with pulling together an outfit.
