After putting together the graphic for this post, I realized I have been making some sporty purchases lately. Kinda funny, cause when I would play Spice Girls when I was younger, I was always forced to be sporty spice, since I played soccer and have brown hair. I always wanted to be Baby Spice since she had a cool swing on their tour bus in Spice World (best movie ever), but my blonde friend never let me. Siggggghhhh. These days though, I am embracing my inner Sporty Spice. Maybe I'm being influenced by the World Cup, or my subconscious is freaking out about the half marathon I signed up for... who knows!


1. Old Navy Tank ($17) - I bought this in stripes and white because I like it so much. It's loose, but not too slouchy, and has a nice high neckline.
2. Italy Poster (Free!)  - I spied this poster in an apartment on a home tour and have been searching for it ever since. Brittany over at Brittany Makes made a free printable version in a size for Ikea frames. Ikea frames an insanely affordable, but the sizes are European standard frame sizes, so rarely do they fit any art I buy. Thank you Brittany!!
3. Olay Fresh Effects Dew Over Moisturizer ($12) - I switched over to this gel moisturizer for the warmer months. The gel feels cool and is very hydrating without being greasy. It smells really nice too! The container looks small, but I use it daily and have gone through half in about two months.
4. Nike Flex Experience ($60) - I believe in buying a good pair of sneakers for running, so I don't like to wear my nice running shoes for walking around the city. I decided to get a less expensive pair of Nike's just for walking, and I have worn these almost every day since I got them. They are SO comfortable.
5. Gap Legging Jean ($35 - On Sale!) - Denim is an item I believe is worth the investment. That being said, I have tried a lot, a lot, a lot of luxury brands and many of them were not worth the price. I still love Citizens and Hudsons, but holy moly, these Gap legging jeans are probably the most comfortable jeans I've ever purchased. They are a sturdy denim, but also very stretchy. I was worried they would stretch too much, but I have worn these 5 or 6 times and they have stretched out very minimally. I legit could probably do the splits in these jeans, if I could do the splits to begin with.
6. J. Crew Sweater ($15 - On Sale!) - Summer in San Francisco is sort of a joke. It is one of the foggiest times of the year, so lightweight sweaters are necessary. I like the 3/4 sleeve on this J. Crew one, and the athletic stripes on the arms. Plus, the sale price is AMAZING.
