Red, White, and Blue

cropped jeans - eddie bauer; striped tee - h&m; folding wayfarers - ray-ban
Today's patriotic outfit! And outfit #2 made from my travel capsule. Funny thing is that I started wearing this in the afternoon, and then after my run, couldn't bear wearing jeans anymore. So I swapped the jeans out for the soft shorts. Glad I went with the red and white stripe since it could skew really patriotic, or really Parisian feeling haha.

My family is celebrating the 4th grilling lemongrass pork outside to eat with eggrolls and rice vermicelli. Tonight, we'll go catch the fireworks at the lake. It's beautiful days like this that make living in the Midwest not so bad. Yes, we have winter for most of the year, but it makes summer that much sweeter.

I'm definitely feeling a little sunsick today, but it's so so worth it. My boyfriend and I are doing the Couch to 5k program again. I started this a while ago, and then stopped after about 5 weeks or so because my knee started to really bother me. But we're back to it as of a week ago! Whenever we're back at our parents' house, we love running the Des Plaines River Trail. It's beautiful in the summer and I try to enjoy it as much as possible, since I don't get as much nature in the city.
