All right - at the beginning of the month there was a goal that I made that I didn't include in my list that I shared with you. Mostly because I was unsure about it. It seemed like a sort of superficial goal but the more that I thought about it the more I realized it was something that I wanted to work on.
So here goes (I'm slightly embarrased about it) I NEED to be thinking about what I look like. I feel like since I have started running that I have taken more time to get sweaty and less time to try to clean up my act. I have been wanting to live everyday in workout gear and never put makeup on again. I would feel confident when I left the house in my minimal style and pony tail until I came in contact with people who did their makeup and actually went shopping for real clothes - not just dri-fit stuff.
My lifestyle has changed a lot compared to when I was in college. Then I would go to the gym maybe once a week - if it was a good week then a couple of times and walk to campus. In my senior year I started to pick up running but with the ability to pick and choose my class times I was able to start class late enough in the day that I could still do all of my hair and makeup.
I have so much makeup that I don't use anymore - see evidence pictured below. It comes in handy when I am getting married, or a friend is getting married. But for the day to day stuff - I honestly would rather sleep in a little extra or get in a couple extra minutes of running/stretching/strength exercises.
On Friday I went way casual (lots of days I dress like this actually) grey t-shirt, skinny jeans, grey leg warmers and black boots.
Find some cute - regular clothes - I have enough clothes to run in - no need to invest in more.
Figure out the easiest hair style and do that - makeup is ok at a minimum
Look like I actually thought about what I was wearing before I leave my house.
What advice do you have for cute basics for my closet?
Easy outfits to pair together?
Do any other run-aholics think this way?
