Recently a reader named Beth emailed me asking me to do a Fashion feature on what I wear on any given day. After checking to make sure that she emailed the right person, I asked her if it was a joke.
I don’t consider myself to make much of a fashion statement with what I wear.
Generally I dress for comfort, unless we are of course talking about my 4 inch stilettos.
Yesterday, at the funeral, I was asked by a man how I fit my toes in the end. LOL. I love this question.
I tried explaining to him that the toes don’t go into the pointy part, to which he replied, “Must have some short feet!”
Oh man I needed that laugh!
Since I love What I Wore and I did promise you guys some Fashion on here, I decided to give Beth’s idea a shot. I will do “What I Wore, The Uncool Version” :D
I have never followed fashion trends. I mean if it looks good on my body I will wear it, but I won’t wear something trendy usually. I am a pretty basic gal when it comes to my clothing!
Here is today’s What I Wore 1st Segment.
Morning Outdoor Run:
Putting on the knee sleeves!
What I Wore:
- 2 knee sleeves
- Polar RS200 HRM
- White Nike Cap (Purchased in 2006 at outlet store for 60% off)
- Lululemon Reverse Groove Pants (from 2006 and still kicking, even though the lulu symbols have come off!)
- Pink Lululemon tank purchased in Spring 2007? (Sorry I forget the name of it, but it has a funky, open + crossed back)
- IPod Shuffle
- Blister Proof socks (they lie!)
Later on today…
- $5 Old Navy Yellow Flip Flops
- OPI Nail Polish in Feelin Hot Hot Hot (Spring 2009)
Some Blue Notes Board Shorts that I ‘borrowed’ from my sister, wink wink*
I think these must be from pre-2004 and they are still as good as new! Amazing!
A used Lululemon Shape Jacket bought off Ebay for under $40 CAD (regular price is $100 CAD + tax!)
I am all about bright and bold colours. I find they make my skin glow.
And a pair of favourite Swarovski earrings from my mom. These are my go-to earrings!
And there you have it! Pretty basic, right?
Today’s Question: What is your style like?
I have always been a big nature girl, who likes soft and feminine clothing. I am a girly girl, but my basic wear is always super comfortable. I hate synthetic fabrics!
I had a wonderful run outside today in the sunshine!
Man, I have missed my outdoor workouts.
I find the runs outside FLY by…I could literally keep going and going!
I even had some new songs on the Shuffle which was a fun way to mix it up. I will be posting my playlist later!
Today I tested out my calibration on my Foot Pod to see if it was correct. I measured the distance of a nearby street on Map My Route so I knew what my HRM ‘should’ read for the distance. We also measured it with the car just to make sure. I was happy to find out that it was dead on. I was happy that I didn’t have to recalibrate it!
- Duration: 37 mins.
- Max heart rate: 173 bpm (going up hill)
- Avg heart rate: 154 bpm
- Feel the burn: 317 kcals
- Distance run: 3.49 miles (oops, I went over my training plan! It was just too easy outside!)
- Average pace: 10:30 minute mile
As I mentioned, only near the end of my workout did I realize that I was going to go over my mileage on the run! I didn’t mean to, but I was just having such a great time outside! I was anticipating only running 2.8 miles today, but ah well. I did cut it short once I saw where my mileage was at so it could have been near 4 miles today!
I did lots of leg stretching when I came home, including the yoga pose ‘dead bug’- I love this stretch for inner thighs!
