*Ray Ban "New Small Wayfarer" Sunglasses in Tortoise

For the first time in many, many weeks, I have finally relaxed a bit and sat down to focus a bit more on this little blog of mine. It feels good, like I'm catching up with an old friend. Slowly but surely I'm catching up on what my favorite bloggers have been up to as well. I really wish I had more time to devote to this blog, but unfortunately real life can get in the way. One of the good things about blogging for fun is that I'm not forced to post out of obligation, but only when I want to. Even though I've been busy lately, sometimes I love an outfit that I put together and will take the few extra minutes to snap some photos and upload them, even if I don't write that much in the post.

Not sure why I look oh-so-serious in these photos. The Diet Coke obviously hadn't kicked in yet this morning. This outfit was completely inspired by my always stylish cubicle neighbor and co-worker, D-Hud, I spied her layering work last week and decided that I needed to replicate it with my own closet. This has got to be one of my favorite outfits of late, it combines so many of my favorite things and was amazingly comfortable as well! First of all, this Yin Me pullover from lululemon has got to be one of the most easy things to wear. It's cozy, slouchy, and can be paired with "real life" clothes and "gym clothes". Thanks to my laid back dress code, I've been known to sport yoga inspired outfits to the office. Love that this can be paired with jeans or leggings, depending on what look I'm going for. The mint blouse underneath is a cheap thrill from H&M I couldn't resist ($13!), especially because I, along with approximately 68% of Pinterest, is obsessed with mint green. I've always loved it (you can tell by how often my anthro Mint Drop necklace appears on this blog) and I am happy that it's "in" right now, because that means there are more mint items out there! 

Below are some instagram snaps from the last few weeks. (Follow me @rosaan!)

Essie "Tour de Finance" with a touch of "Clambake"

Oaxaca Grilled Cheese Sandwich from Little Muenster
(recommended by my co-worker A, who is my other cube neighbor!)

Absolutely obsessed with the song "Call Me Maybe", as much as I hate to admit it.

So my friend K gave me a jar of Trader Joe's Cookie Butter, and it is life changing. Especially paired with B&J's new Greek Frozen Yogurt. the Raspberry Fudge Chunk is delightful, especially if you love Greek yogurt. I finished the pint in 2 sittings. Bad news bears.

Ran my very first 15K this weekend! Thanks so much to my lovely friends for coming to cheer me on, I really appreciated the encouragement!

Hope everyone has a fabulous week! Let's see if I can get back to this whole regularly posting thing...


  1. YOu have inspired me to start running. Had a baby 10 months ago. I am not fat but have a baby belly that I would love to get rid of. I need to stop by Lululemon :)

  3. Love the outfit! I wish my office was more casual. I might have to see if H&M still has that mint shirt though! I've recently gotten into running and ran the 4-miler that was before the 15k. Congrats on your run and I'm looking forward to reading about your running!

  4. I would never have thought to layer like that, but I must say, it looks fab!

  5. Hey great blog and photos. I am following you. Hope you'll do the same.
    I also have a giveaway.


  6. I love the way you layer. Lookin good as always!
