hazy days.





{top: etsy // jeans: marc jacobs (similar and on sale!) // heels: cole haan (similar) // bag: vintage // gold cuff: vintage // sunglasses: urban outfitters //coral necklace: lilly pulitzer}
you wanna know what's not fun?
attempting to train for a marathon with all of this crazy forest fire smoke.
forest fires everywhere seem to be planting their co2 emissions right smack dab in this valley.
although i usually find every excuse in the book to not run,
i ran 14 miles this past saturday and i figured if i've made it that far,
might as well keep on truckin'.

you wanna know what is fun?
your boyfriend telling you he found this vintage rainbow plaid top on etsy.
for $12!
and buying it for me.  
(just go with it people... don't question why my boyfriend even knows what etsy is)

I was a bit confused by the title at first, but mad props for toughing out 14 miles in the haze. PA is in the lazy, hazy, days of summer and I'm having trouble motivating myself through that. Thanks for the extra push!

LOVE that vintage-y plaid top! Super cute :-)

running + forest fire smoke sounds AWFUL (i almost wrote awesome - totally not at all). good luck though - hopefully it gets better. and i LOVE that plaid top - it's the perfect color palette

I have so much to say about this post.

1. Those photos are great and I love your location!

2. That top is fantastic and I am totally jealous.

3. The fact that your boyfriend bought you it on etsy makes me even more jealous

4. YOU GO for training for a marathon in the middle of summer. I am so impressed. Really!

I love that necklace, and the old gas pump. Such great pictures. I can also relate, Utah has been getting a lot of the smoke from the fires as well. So not fun!

When you find a boy who appreciates Etsy, and will actually shop on it for you, you must keep him around!
