Hi guys! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments on the Love page. I still have a lot to add to it, but I’m glad that I got it started. I’ve been meaning to do it for a while! Last week we finalized the 82 photos for our wedding album, so once we pick it up we will have a disc with all 1200 photos so I can wedding recap to my heart’s delight 😀
Yesterday was Friday which means business casual at the office. For the fourth day of the challenge, I kept it pretty simple with a cardigan, black skirt and sandals:
- Berry cardigan- J Crew Factory Outlet (purchased January 2010)- Repeat
- Black tulip skirt- Banana Republic (purchased July 2009)
- Sunnies- Chanel (gift received June 2007)
I’m standing in front of my black Camry, Cameron. I got her in February 2009 and she already has about 45k miles on her :p Lots of driving to Va Beach from upstate NY!
- Sandals- Cynthia Vincent for Target (purchased May 2010)
I wore the cardigan differently than last time by wearing it buttoned up and tucked in. I especially love this combination with the skirt in the winter with a pair of tights and flat boots or the berry colored shoes I wore the other day.
Tonight presents the first real “challenge” of the wardrobe challenge. My bestie Kristin invited me to go out with her and her sister/sister’s friends. Her sister got a limo for a special evening on the town and all of the girls will be decked out in fancy duds, meaning that every single girl is wearing a dress. At first I figured I would wear the black skirt with the yellow tank and a nice necklace/pumps but now that strikes me as too casual. Technically I’ve only worn nine items thus far so I could swap out my skinny jeans for a dress. That just doesn’t seem functional though- I need to be able to wear my jeans on the weekends! Ah well, I’ll figure it out.
Today the half-marathon training plan called for a seven miler. I slept in so I didn’t hit the running path until around 1:00 P.M. I was a little nervous that it would be too hot but man, what an amazing run! From the get I just felt like I was in an amazing groove. My inner monologue while running is hilarious. “Alright, how are you feeling, ah feeling pretty decent, I’m surprised I don’t feel hotter, aw what a cute little kid, don’t try to take me on squirrel, you are such a strong runner!” etc etc. Besides the random stream of consciousness I actually do get a lot of good thinking done during the runs. I definitely enjoy doing solo runs alone. It just allows me to reflect on the past goings on of the week and come up with to-do lists and, perhaps most importantly, to just veg out and listen to good music 😀
In other exciting running news, on Thursday evening Melissa and I set out to run three miles in under 28 minutes. We really pushed ourselves but we did it! Three miles in 27:06, averaging 9:02 per mile. It was SO challenging but I felt awesome afterwards. We have a 5k this Tuesday after work so I am hoping I can finally achieve my goal of running a 5k race in under 30 minutes. Wish me luck!! 😀
Alright, gotta jet and figure out the wardrobe sitch for the evening. Have a wonderful Saturday peeps!
