Y’all were so great with your responses to my post last week about figuring out this whole “social life in your 30s” thing. The biggest takeaway from your comments/messages is that Patrick and I just need to be more intentional with our time, whether it’s for the two of us or out with friends. Saying we’re going to go on a date and then just sitting on the couch asking “So…where do you want to go?” isn’t the most romantic. Gone are the days when we’re texting friends on Saturday afternoon to make plans for that night. We need to think ahead, and that’s ok. Also: instead of waiting around for people invite me places, I’m just going to invite myself. Shameless, party of 1.
But now on to the important stuff: how my legs look. Y’all, THESE JEGGINGS. I do not have super toned legs, but something about the fit of these miracle pants make me look like I’ve been spending hours in the gym. Case in point:
BAM! Seriously, I don’t know where that rounded, beautiful, hamstring came from, but I’ll take it. These jeggings just seriously squeeze everything in and sculpt your lower body while still being comfortable. #miraclepants.
Since my new lifestyle is nothing if not casual, I love the way today’s outfit is casual + pulled-together. This grey hoodie has been one of my favorite pieces from this capsule, and I wear it with leggings on my way to yoga or under this jacket with a pair of boots. It’s been perfect for this fall weather that’s 80 degrees one day and 50 the next. (Now it’s just rainy and cold every day, which is another thing altogether.) While I love these boots, the heel is way higher than it looks. I finally bought some Dr. Scholl’s to cushion the balls of my feet in them, and that made all the difference. It’s the little things, y’all.
Next is an even more dressed-down version where I just switched out my jeans and shoes. These distressed jeans are super-soft and feel like leggings, and I just love, love, LOVE the white sneakers. Super comfortable for nannying or running errands (which is 90% of my life these days).

This capsule isn’t fancy, but that’s alright by me. Casual suits me just fine.
