These sale finds, though: Leggings I swear by & the sports bra I buy in bulk… Among Other Things.
Weekend at last — anyone else in the same boat with that mindset?
The last few days have been jam-packed, but that’s never a bad thing in a bigger picture sense.
In addition to teaching Cycle at Studio Three every day this week, I’ve been dog sitting as well (for my Nika girl, photos below). I also spent a big chunk of time virtually wedding dress shopping with my sister (since I wasn’t able to be there in person).
Looking forward, I’m so excited for Lollapalooza next weekend. I can’t believe it’s nearly August!
Last weekend, I checked out Pitchfork Music Festival (first timer!) with one of the event sponsors, car2go — a flexible, pay-by-the-minute car-sharing service that just came to Chicago (but is currently in most major US cities).
You can read more about/sign up for car2go here — be sure to use the code CHIHAL to waive all registration fees and for a $15 credit toward your first use.
Here’s a few sales, links and the like that caught my eye this week:
Sales & Such
Everyday essential: My favorite black skinny jeans — on sale.
Exercise essential: And the high-waisted leggings I swear by — also on sale (under $36).
If the “shoe” fits: I have at least three pairs of this Nike sports bra — it’s my fave.
Sneaker game strong: Nike’s classic ‘Cortez’ sneaker — newly marked down in the prettiest of pale pink colors. I have these, they’re super comfortable!
Summer staple: Navy and white striped pull-on pants (super similar to the ones I have — and wear all the time, below).
Poolside: An adorable — and affordable — all-black backless one-piece bathing suit.
Accessory obsession: I’m so into circular, retro-looking sunglasses this season — these designer frames are high on my wish list.
