Steppin’ Into 29 In Stripes

misa striped blouse
Yes, I am now 29 years old! Which I am totally okay with but knowing this is my last year in my 20’s is pretty hard to believe. I am very happy where I am in my life but one thing I wanted to do at some point (I’ll say before I turn 30 because it sounds right) is run a half marathon. I have no desire to run a full marathon because running for hours just doesn’t seem fun at all but I can handle a half.

With that said, I have signed up for the St. Jude half marathon in December as part of the Bloggin’ Miles for St. Jude!!! I am very nervous for the training to begin but I am excited to do it. I’ll talk more about this as the date comes closer but I’d love for any of you to donate to help me reach my goal, you can click on this link to do so!

I have to admit I sure do feel good when I get dressed up sans Myles. Never could I wear this outfit with Myles, white jeans would no longer be white and this shirt would end up being all twisted and most likely exposing more than it should. These earrings would be pulled and tugged as well. Note- this is not a baby proof outfit.

The Breakdown:
My outfit is from Rowe Boutique located in the Short North in Columbus. It is my favorite place to shop when I’m in Ohio. I know there are a lot of other local boutiques here but I have yet to frequent them. This top is by a designer I’ve never worn, MLM Label and is super cute. I had to wear high wasted jeans and this pair was perfect. Since my shirt was more of a blouse and striped it seemed on the professional side so I added a watch. My statement earrings are currently on sale and under $20 and made this outfit a little more fun without being too loud, I also love these earrings. I would have preferred this look with a more simple shoe, perhaps these which I own or a pump but these strappy ones were all I had with me at the time. We are still unpacking into our new house and I have a lot my nice things are still at our condo. Well, I’m off to get back to Myles and hope he behaves today so I can have a happy and relaxing birthday!
