Shirtdress + Oxfords (Mid-Week Required Reading)

Shopping fell by the wayside between an impending move and the many adult milestones that I got to celebrate with friends. (Insert a potentially empty promise about blogging more regularly here.) I do want to share a recent purchase that I noticed was restocked in all sizes. After a lengthy search for the perfect shirt dress, I found the one in the ASOS Swing Shirt Dress with Long Sleeves (available in petite sizes only). Size US1 (worn in this post) fits me well and is sufficiently blousy without being overwhelming. The material is slightly wrinkle-prone but perfectly gauzy which makes it versatile (read: can be tucked into pants without unsightly bulges). I will share a few more looks featuring this dress soon.

And some light reading to get you through hump day:

Why I Run

In the ultra-wired world in which we live, I find it necessary to consciously unplug in order to reflect. Running is a welcomed break from gadget dependency and often the only time in my day when I am not tethered to my web-enabled network.

I liken running to reading, which are both experiences best enjoyed in private, but occasional communal activities, like a race or a book club, are fun reminders that even solitary activities can be shared.
