Friday Fashion Faves + Stoney Clover Picnic Collection

Just a few Friday Favorites for today!

First, can we just discuss again how I thought this colorway of my new Brooks Ghost 13’s was boring? It’s not boring! I really like the subtleness of the gray, and, I think I would go out of my way to order this color again on purpose. Maybe I don’t need exciting, bright-colored running shoes after all.

Oh, and yes, the Ghosts are always super comfortable. My feet really love them.

In Stoney Clover news, their new Picnic Collection launched yesterday. Stoney Clover product launches are always a big deal filled with anticipation of the launch day and time!

I always recommend a small pouch, the fanny pack looks so cute, and I definitely want a tote.

The new patches are adorable too — I have yet to make any final patch-pouch decisions. There are so many good choices although I always gravitate towards a cupcake. And ice cream cones.

Not Stoney Clover but I love this pretty tie-dye-looking tote anyway.

Did you see Forever 21 has a collaboration with Juicy Couture? A lot is sold out already but I want to go to the store today to see what they have available!

I naturally gravitate towards skirts like this.

Bloomingdale’s is running Friends & Family still so you can get this ruffled mini skirt AND this flounce mini skirt with an additional 25% off if you act quick! Go with this cropped tee in pink too.

I’m already working on my picks for the upcoming Sephora Spring Sale which I will share next week. I can’t believe it’s time for another Sephora Savings Event!

In the meantime, here are my most recent Sephora Savings posts to get you started thinking about what you may want to stock up on with the discount:

Hockey In Summer + Fanny Packs + Fashion Finds

Lots of Friday Favorites to discuss today (how is it Friday already?) so let’s jump right in!

Hockey Playoffs In Summer?!

Never in my 42 years of life have I experienced a hockey season during the summer. Until now. Looking back at this photo from an Islanders game in December, I had NO IDEA when I took the picture that the hockey season (and the rest of the world) would be coming to an abrupt halt due to a pandemic, only to have the hockey season resume with the playoffs in the summer. Who could imagine such a thing?!

So while this year has been anything but normal, I’m not complaining about the hockey part at the moment. I’m pretty excited to have hockey games to watch, and it’s playoff hockey! Should be quite interesting. Usually around now the talk turns to training camp and the start of the new season in October. I have no idea what fall will look like so I’m happy to enjoy hockey in the present moment. Even if it is basically 100 degrees outside.

Stoney Clover Fanny Pack

Should I do a “what’s in my Stoney Clover fanny pack” post like I did a what’s in my clear pouch for summer running? Yes, I think that I will. I have a lot to say about the fanny pack especially since I was never a fanny pack person BUT the new fanny pack option from Stoney Clover was too cute to resist. And don’t get me started on the new Love Shack Fancy X Stoney Clover Laguna blue glitter pearl letters either. I already have another pouch in the works using these letters. The glitter plus the pearls plus the Love Shack Fancy floral pattern of the letter is just so delicately pretty with that extra level of detail. Can’t get enough.

Fashion Finds:

In this heat, I’ve been all about dresses and skirts so naturally, that’s what I’ve been searching this week because I need
want more.

I ordered this comfortable and pretty eyelet skirt from the Gap and it arrived very quickly. It’s a perfect staple to have in the closet because you can dress it up with heels (if we ever get back to normal life and do normal dress up things) or you can wear it really casual with a t-shirt and flip flops or sneakers.

Here’s another eyelet style in this Eyelet A-Line Skirt.

I also love this super cute taffeta ruffle miniskirt. And this sweet and simple white tiered miniskirt 

Oh, and this court Rival High Rise Skirt from lululemon. Good luck with finding your size. I may go to the store today in person to try to find my size.

I’m always drawn to dresses like this Ruffle Strap Midi Sundress although midi is never my favorite style. It really depends. I’m more the above the knee or right at the knee style since I’m short. However, I can wear midi when the fit is right and there’s some a-line, high waist something to the dress so I don’t look so lost in the length.

Ok, I love this Nike Cover Up Dress with a hood and I would wear this Nike tennis dress every day. Did I ever tell you that I used to take tennis lessons as a kid? I should take them now to wear the dress with purpose.

And yes, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts for everyone in a few days. I don’t love this sale each year but I will continue scouting it to report back on my findings.

Have a great weekend!
