Hello and happy weekend and happy end of March! I am so.ready.for.Spring. Beyond ready. I have a half marathon on tap this weekend. I'm excited about it, even if I don't feel totally ready. I'm not worried about my fitness at all (hello: see prior 19 weeks of IMLP training posts), but this is the first time I've done a half marathon without a concentrated, running-specific training leading up to it. It should be a fun morning.
Here are a handful of recent outfits.
* St. Patrick's Day! Green Top & Jeans *
This was a casual St. Paddie's Day outfit that I wore out with friends the weekend before the holiday. This is the shirt I scored at Banana Republic outlet for something crazy like $5. Despite my sour expression in this picture, I really was happy to go out for the evening.
* Banana Republic Red Wrap Dress *
I really, really, really believe that a wrap dress is essential to a wardrobe. I have several and I wear them often. This one is from two years ago at Banana Republic. I love the way it fits and the way it feels. My face is a little red here because I had a 8.5 mile run that morning. I wore my nude patent heels with the dress and kept accessories super simple.
* Black Dress, Black Cardigan, Gold Belt *
I liked this outfit, even if I look a little ninja-like. I wore my black sheath knit dress (from Banana Republic outlet) with a Forever 21 fitted cardigan, and black hose and heels. My favorite part was the addition of my skinny gold belt, which I bought years ago (I think 4 years) and have never once worn until this day (which was Monday of this week). It just worked and I loved the little pop of gold. I wish I'd taken a picture without the cardigan.
Three more outfits. Yay. I like posting these because it does force me to think of ways to use my existing pieces so that I can show them off on the blog.
Have a great weekend! I'll be back on Monday with IMLP training recap and, later in the week, a race recap of the inaugural Philadelphia Love Run half marathon. The hill of death from the Philly marathon is featured in this race ... gulp.
See you swoon,
