my less serious day: home tour

My house is for rent and some guy came by to look at it before I had a chance to pick up. 

Just so you know, four pairs of post-run once-sweaty underwear hanging from your ceiling fan makes for an awkward home tour.


Top: Old Navy; skirt: Anthropologie; necklace: Target; heels: Tsubo.


This morning I went on a 30-minute run at working pace followed by a short 15-minute cool down walk with L. Tuesday means an after-work 60-minute kickboxing class. I finished the day with a 10-minute walk when I returned home.


Pre-workout I had 1/2 banana, 1/2 mug of black coffee, and 1 pint of water. For breakfast I had this bowl (times 2) of Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal mixed with Kellogg's All-Bran, 1/2 sliced banana, and almond milk.

Lunch was a romaine lettuce salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, 1/4 avocado, cottage cheese, balsamic vinegar, and sunflower seeds.

My afternoon snack was a Golden Delicious apple and cocoa-dusted cashews.

Dinner was leftover sausage, goat cheese, and spinach fettuccine alongside roasted zucchini and squash.

Dessert was more cocoa-dusted cashews and a piece a of Belgian chocolate (dark chocolate with vanilla filling) my parents brought me back from their recent trip. To.die.for.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Tuesday, June 19. 


  1. Yum, yum, yum! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks All Bran is delicious. I particularly like it with ice cream, cottage cheese, and peanut butter. Soooo good :)

  2. I am the same way, I always leave my sweaty running clothes to dry and forget when people come over. Whooops. Haha.

  3. Cocoa dusted cashews?!?! YUM! I've had cocoa-roasted almonds...I bet the cashews are even better though!

  4. That skirt. Oh my God that skirt. Was it a recent Anthro find, because Im totally willing to drive out right now and hunt one down if it's still in stores.

    And the home tour...that's hilarious. Im sure the person understood. After they showed my apartment about 3 times, I stopped giving a damn. This is my mess, deal with have one too. Welcome to your new home.

    1. it was a few months ago, but i got it on sale!

  5. I'm the same way with sweaty clothes! I usually have them hanging on random door handles haha

  6. Love how your outfit matches your bedroom. :)

  7. Love your outfit! You JUST got me onto cocoa-dusted almonds and now you tell me there are cocoa-dusted cashews out there too? Omg my world is a-rockin'.

  8. Cocoa-dusted cashew sound great!!! I like you outfit. And thank you for sharing your work-out, it is always interesting to see what other people are doing. :-)

  9. LOL @ the undies hanging from the fan, that's totally something I would do!

    That skirt is so stinking cute!!!!


  10. that salad with cottage cheese looks SO good

  11. I LOVE your skirt! So cute and chic!

    Haha, so funny about the home tour. The exact same thing happened to me when I was renting out my apartment several years ago. Except my bras and underwear were on the bathroom door handle. I didn't realize this until *after* I'd let one of the guys use the bathroom. Whoops! So awkward. ;)

    Your spinach fettuccine dinner looks amazing! I love stirring goat cheese into pasta.
