What I wore this week: January 22-27, 2018

Hello, hello. Welcome to my weekly roundup of what I wore. There are a few reasons I’ve decided to do a weekly roundup, and I’ll share those reasons with you now:

  1. I recently got an Echo Look for my closet and it’s really helpful in documenting what I’ve worn. It’s not quite the same, but it makes me feel a little like I have Cher’s closet computer from Clueless. I’m trying to learn the ins and outs of it, while also taking inventory of what I’m wearing. That means I have the photos to share, for better or worse.
  2. I often get asked what I’m wearing (JK JK, like one person every 6 months will ask, tbh) so I obviously want to share the wealth of clothing information.
  3. I don’t know. I just felt like doing a roundup.

Pretty solid reasons if you ask me.

Anyway, here goes nothing. This blog is all about living and learning and whatever else, so maybe this will prove to be helpful to someone other than me. I have no idea, but let’s do it.

Monday, January 15

It was freezing on Monday, but I had an appointment so I was forced to leave the house. I bundled up, but remained true to myself in one very dumb way: exposed ankles.

Also, my top is so comfortable and soft. I’m obsessed, and it’s only $16!

Tuesday, January 16

For those that may not know, I am not just a sports reporter. I am also a high school cheerleading coach. Fun, right?

Anyway, our high school’s wrestling team had a dual on Tuesday so I was looking for something that felt like sweats but was a little more put together. Since it was still FREEZING outside, I went with a sweatshirt, jeans and moccasins that are actually slippers but I still wear them outside.

Thursday, January 18

I had another high school sporting event, but this one was girl’s basketball. It was warmer outside, but the concept remained the same. I wanted comfort, so I went with the tried-and-true sweater, jeans and sneakers. Except my sneakers have a little extra poof to them, if you will.

I separated this one out because I was really excited with how this look came together. I attended ‘A Night of Symphonic Hip Hop featuring Wyclef Jean’ at the Holland Center in Omaha and I wanted to get a little more dressed up than normal, but nothing too crazy. I think I hit the right balance.

Regardless, the concert was incredible. If you can ever see Wyclef Jean in concert, do it. If you can see him backed by a symphony, DO IT. He was incredible, as were all the musicians on stage. I highly, highly recommend and would easily see him live again if he heads back our way.

And that is officially that! My first roundup is complete, and I hope to keep it alive more than one week. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, I’m going to try and revive my Poshmark so follow me there. I’m planning to list a bunch of things, and maybe you’d like to snag something. It says the closet is empty now, but I’ll be adding things soon!


Hello, Hello Ruby!

Y’all. I am so excited. Tomorrow is the official GRAND OPENING of Hello Ruby! For those unfamiliar with Hello Ruby (and its lovely owner Jill), here’s a little about Omaha’s new mobile boutique (from Hello Ruby directly):

hello ruby offers a unique and innovative approach to shopping, with the most stylish yet affordable women’s clothing & accessories…brought to you on wheels. Come onto the truck – we stop and you shop. hello ruby promises you a shopping experience you won’t forget!

The grand opening is tomorrow (Saturday, April 1) at Ted and Wally’s on 11th and Jackson in Omaha from 11am-4pm. You can get more details here.

(Can’t make it to the grand opening? Don’t worry! Find the truck right here.)

So, what can you expect from Jill and Hello Ruby? Having gotten an early look at the ribbon cutting, I can say you’re going to LOVE it. Jill has stocked Hello Ruby with so many unique and fun tops, dresses, rompers, pants, jewelry… You name it! She’s even partnered with other local entrepreneurs (like Ripley and Rue) to provide even more awesome products for you, your dog, your life, etc. etc.

And just to highlight a small sample of what she’ll have to offer, here’s one of my most FAVORITE bomber jackets this spring:


I made sure to stand in front of a baseball diamond in need of some love to show how sporty and trendy I am. Did it work? Anyway, this bomber is only one of many amazing items on the truck and I need you to go buy lots of stuff so I don’t spend my entire paycheck at Hello Ruby myself (but who am I kidding…. I still will).

Anyway, I wanted to introduce you to Jill and her awesome new adventure. So if you’re in Omaha tomorrow (or any day), get out and support Hello Ruby (and all local businesses)! You won’t regret it, I promise.


P.S. Congratulations, Jill!
