my less serious day: dear closet mirrors

Dear full-length-mirrored-closet doors from my previous house -

I used to hate you because you are ugly and straight out of the 70's. But today, when I lugged a 50 pound mirror into my bedroom and awkwardly photographed my outfit, I missed you.

Sincerely -


Skirt: Gap; tee: Old Navy; belt: Banana outlet; heels: Tsubo.


This morning I went on a 30-minute run at working pace. After work I hit the gym for a 60-minute Body Pump class. I also included two 10-minute walks  during the day.


Breakfast was a bowl (x2) of Kellogg's All Bran, Cheerios, banana, and almond milk

Lunch was a romaine lettuce salad with grape tomatoes, mushrooms, carrots, tahini, cottage cheese, and balsamic vinegar. It looked much tastier before I forgot to photograph it and ate half before I remembered...

My afternoon snack was a Pink Lady apple and dry-roasted almonds.

It is rare that there is fresh fruit in our work fridge. I took advantage for my second afternoon snack of cantaloupe, watermelon, and pineapple.

Dinner was eggplant pizzas (three with goat cheese and one with Parmesan) on top of raw spinach and corn on the cob. Look familiar? Dessert was (un-pictured) dry Cascadian Farms vanilla almond granola and peanut butter.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Monday, August 13. 


  1. Aww well at least the outfit is super cute :) Delicious looking eats as always!

  2. adorable outfit. and I still have not made those eggplant heavenly melts.

  3. Hahaha, I have the hardest time taking self-pics in my skinny Walmart-ish mirror. I've always wanted one of those huge ones that take up half the wall!

    That said, the skirt is very cute :)

    1. haha yeah these fashion shots are going to be a bit ghetto until i get it figured out (and get the time to!)

  4. I love that skirt! Cute, as always, Miss Sara!

  5. Gotta love the mirror haul from one room to the next, trying to find the right lighting. The new blog is going to be pretty fashion-heavy, so I've been trying to figure out how to make it work. DANG if it isn't difficult!

    1. oh yay! i'm SO pumped for your new blog. and you know i will love the fashion part!

  6. Kudos for planning to take walks during the day! I think it is so admirable when people purposely plan NOT to be sitting at a desk all day long!

  7. ohhhh gosh those eggplant pizzas look amaaaaazing!

  8. Taking self pics are the WORST in my mirror. I end up feeling like an idiot. You did well, girl :)

  9. Loving that outfit!


  10. I used to have full-length mirrors on my closet doors when I was growing up and I've missed them since the day I moved! They make seeing and photographing outfits SO much easier. But, your new set-up seems to work just as well!
    I looove the outfit, as usual! You always inspire me to incorporate more skirts into my wardrobe rotation. I tend to forget about them! <3
