lounging.

if i'm lounging at home with no concrete plans, you'll probably find me in jeans and a tee with my hair thrown up. i love the idea of a sophisticated bag that adds structure to my otherwise casual outfit. should i need to leave the house for a lunch or store run, i instantly feel pulled together with the right bag. added a vintage scarf for color.

if you follow me on instagram (@rockoomph), you'll know that i participated in our great aloha run, an 8.15 mile race traditionally held on president's day. i literally "decided" to do it a couple days before, no training whatsoever. man, am i feeling it today. and even though i wanted to sleep the rest of the day, i packed up dinner and took the kids to the beach. after all, it was their holiday, too.

one of the most comfortable jeans i own...
several years later, worn to perfection.

post-run swag.
post-run breakfast...savory crepes, ham, and coffee.
tradition of collecting sea glass. yesterday's finds.

  6. Wow congrats on completing that run.

    You look so pretty. I love your jeans and the scarf on your handbag.

    I love sea glass. I always look for it whenever I make it to the beach. Which is very very rare due to living in Kentucky.

  7. Congrats! on the GAR! I've done it 3 times when I was younger, I keep telling myself that I will do it again,but who knows when that will be? I also keep telling myself that the Honolulu Marathon is on my bucket list! I love the laid back look, that's me most of the time too and the weekends! Comfy and easy!! I totally agree about the bag, I am a bag lady to extremes.

  8. So now I have three reasons to envy you:
    1. You look so fab in that casual outfit (I tend to look better "dressier")
    2. You actually get to FIND sea-glass... it's so lovely, but I'm in "fly-over country" where we BUY it.
    3. You are in good-enough shape to run an 8+-mile race on a whim....

    It's a good thing you're sweet, or I could really hate you! :)
