Weekend Recap: Fitnesswear to Formal

Laura_Black_Tie_Precious_Child

This weekend had quite a few polar opposites as I went from fitness gear to formalwear… but getting to experience all sides of the spectrum is exactly how I like it! My flight got in a bit early on Thursday, which allowed me to meet a friend at Twelve Degrees in Louisville for a quick drink to kick off my time at home. Twelve Degrees is one of my favorite breweries in Colorado, and it had been a while since I’d been there. They had some new-to-me brews on tap, but I stuck with a classic – Walter’s White. Twelve …

Decorating Myself and Three Trees – Happy Holidays!

Laura and Daria

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the last few weeks have been exhausting – and it is so nice that tonight I had no plans and am able to stay home in my own little bed and catch up on things! (Okay, so maybe I did have plans and canceled them… sometimes I need a break.) But don’t feel too sorry for me – while I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately, it’s been for a lot of wonderful reasons. The first weekend I stayed in Dallas, it was to attend my company’s Dallas office holiday party. The attire is …

April Challenge: Focusing on Finances

Yesterday was officially the end of my March fashion challenge, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Last night, I had a minor meltdown while packing for the week. It sounds so silly, I know, but I could just not find anything that I thought looked okay together. One of the biggest things I’ve learned from my month of focusing on fashion is that accessories are key, and since I’m pretty much starting from scratch with my jewelry collection, that means starting from scratch with outfits. Not good when it’s already 8:30pm and I have to be up …

Replacing – and Reorganizing – My Jewelry Collection

On Wednesday night, while going to pack up for my Thursday flight home, I made an upsetting discovery: an entire bag of my stuff was missing! The New Balance shopping bag that I had been using as a catch-all for a lot of miscellany had been in the living room of my hotel suite, but now it was nowhere to be found. Inside that bag was my Garmin, my fuel belt, some other running apparel, a few pairs of shoes… and a jewelry pouch with a ton of stuff (since I had been traveling for two weeks). I’m honestly confused about …

Muddy Marathoner to Black Tie Formal: Savor the Symphony

Last night was the Elan Circle’s annual Savor the Symphony charity event, held at the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas. Since my friend Blake chairs the event and spends a lot of time planning an organizing, I’ve been hearing about it forever, and so planned to stick around Dallas for the weekend in order to attend. It was just luck that I found a marathon to run yesterday while I was in town (more on that in tomorrow’s race recap), but when I arrived home absolutely covered in caked-on mud, I realized that I was about to embark on a pretty …
