Daily Outfit: Make the Best of IT

I'm baaaackk!  Yes, I have a temporary computer so I am back in action. You have probably guessed this about me already, but in case you haven't, anyone who has the determination and discipline to do long distance triathlons (Ironman) is the kind of person who makes things happen.  So I am making the best of it. This dress, in cooler circumstances would get a wider belt and some nude shoes with heels (I brought some, but way too impractical here).  But given that this week is all about preparation for Ironman World Championships, instead you get the dress as it came off the hanger and paired with purple teva flip flops.  Not the glam of other fancy ladies I have seen, but this is over my bathing suit, and right after a 2 hour workout so this is as good as it gets for today!!  Believe me, I am just happy I can download pics and catch up with you all now!! xoxo j


  1. Hi Hunnie.....sol glad to see you, what was the issue? strange huh?
    I think your dress is beautiful!!
    I have to hand it to you, Ive been to Hawaii many times, and I dont think Id be able to keep up with the outfit posts.....too makeup....just walking around in a bathing suit 20 hours a day, look great....hope you are doing well. When does the actual competition start? When are you leaving to come home again? (forgot)

  5. that is a really neat pattern for the dress! and the color is fun too

  6. LOL, I know what you mean, I dont have any makeup on, and the hair is frizzy but I guess I'm willing to let you see the good, the bad and the ugly :) may be more ugly to come so prepare yourselves.. hah hah.

    Fiance is doing the race. I missed qualifying by a few spots so maybe next year.. this one is for the top athletes around the world and I haven't quite made it to that level yet... I've been doing the workouts with Fiance to keep him company though!
