Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! This week my girls headed back to school as fourth and sixth graders. I can't believe that I have a sixth grader! I can vividly remember being a sixth grader myself and it's so crazy that I'm a mother to a middle schooler. Our first week has gone great and been full of newness. The girls are riding the bus for the first time ever and so far it's been a smooth process. Our drop off/pick off location is conveniently less than five minutes from our house (Julianna's school is almost 20 minutes away) so it's been great not living in my car as much!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! I've been living in mostly workout clothes every morning but I have been trying to get dressed in "real clothes" by the afternoon when I go to pickup the girls. My favorite Goodwill is at our drop off/pickup spot so I get dressed up for a thrift run! I am still loving dresses; they have been my go-to for getting dressed!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. B I K E  S H O R T S | I have tried so many bike shorts because they are favorite for working out, especially cycling and these are hands down the best pair that I have ever worn. I have them in the six inch and eight inch length but I personally prefer the eight inch. They are so comfy and so soft! I wear my true lululemon size in these which is a size up from my regular workout gear size.

2. S N E A K E R S | It's been a couple of years since I actually purchased running sneakers. Since I haven't been to the actual gym in a year and half, I haven't really been concerned about the condition of my sneakers. But, I've been getting my into my walks and garage workouts this week. I discovered that my sneakers are really in need of an upgrade because they are so worn down on the bottom. I currently have this pair in my cart. I love a classic black and white sneaker!

3. S H I R T | This shirt has been on my wish list for years (probably since I discovered Madewell) because it's such a classic piece. I finally invested in it back in the spring and it's one of my favorite tops in my closet! I love the oversized yet structured style of this piece. It runs slightly big but I stayed with my true size because it is a little fitted in the shoulders. I love it with denim!

4. N A P  D R E S S | I have been wanting a nap dress since I first saw one of my favorite bloggers styling one! It looked so comfortable yet put together... exactly my style! I finally ordered one last week and it arrived yesterday. I can't wait to wear this beauty!

5. R I N G | I love a simple statement ring for my ring hand and I've been wearing this one daily since May. It's so comfortable to wear! I'm a big fan of all of my Madewell jewelry. It holds up so well!

6. H E A D B A N D | Another roundup, another headband. I just can't get enough! But, they are so practical while being cute. I wear them for my workouts and my oldest daughter wears one of them everyday as well to keep our hair out of our faces. These polka dots are so fun!

7. B A G  S T R A P | My friend bought me this leopard bag strap a few years ago for my birthday and I still absolutely love it! It's still in great condition and adds such a fun pop of leopard to any look. I use it on my medium transport tote (my most favorite Madewell bag)!

8. S L I P  D R E S S | I rediscovered an old silk slip dress in my closet yesterday and it rekindled my love for slip dresses. I went on the hunt for a classic black one and found this $20! Slip dresses are perfect to wear now in the heat of the summer but they also transition nicely into fall by adding a denim jacket and a pair of ankle boots.

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!
