Classic Chic

I can tell my fashion mojo has been missing for quite awhile. Today right off the bat I got 2 compliments: " Wow, great skirt--love your outfit", "You look really good today".
Compliments on my OUTFIT???  I can't remember the last time I got that kind of compliment which tells me that I've been dressing so usual and boring that no one has noticed anything that stands out or looks good (and at least taken a moment to acknowledge it).

I've got a big closet clean out scheduled and am going to get rid of alot of stuff and make room for some new things. Even a couple of new items can make a big difference and they dont even have to be expensive.  I recently saw this post about key items for updating your wardrobe:  8 Spring Updates for Business Casual.  I think I'm going to go shopping soon!!

Pink Loft Top

It's warm enough to wear shorts to work now and my legs are also brown enough :)  From all the gardening I've been doing lately I'm getting a bit of a tan (I know its bad but I love it anyway:).

I really like this t-shirt from loft.  I like the soft color and also the softness of the silk on it.  I don't see myself as a 'soft-clothing-wearing-kinda-gal' so this is a nice change for me:)

Since I was so sick with that stoopid cold virus this past few weeks I'm currently doing alot of juicing as a way to flood my body with awesome goodness from all the vitamins and enzymes from the fruit and veggies. I feel really awesome and energized from it also.    I came across the Aussie guy Joe who lost tons of weight on a juice diet. Thats unreal. Not sure how anyone can do nothing but juice for months on end.  Must have willpower like an ox.

Have you ever tried juicing?

Out in Public

Hello lovelies!!  Well. I have gotten this terrible cold virus thats been going around and I don't know it its bad karma or what but for someone who is RARELY sick, I have had this for 2 weeks! I've had to work from home most of the time due to the extreme coughing/dry hacking and just overall low energy levels.

The MOST disappointing thing is that I was registered to run a 50 Mile trail run and had to pull out of the race.  Thats the main thing that sucks about being sick-- THE LACK OF EXERCISE :(

Today was the first day I ventured out and it almost felt like I've been living in the bush for 20 years or something, felt so weird to be in a big meeting with lots of people. I felt like a foreign creature from outer space.  Anyway, am abit better now, on the mend.  I have to be patient and be grateful for my overall health in the grand scheme of things.

How are you all doing?  I have been reading up and have seen your outfits and such-- don't think I'm not monitoring your fashion trends :)

Running Wild

I've been doing ALOT of trail running these days. Its fantastic. I've even had the pleasure of going on 3 + hour runs all alone. Seeing not one person in the forest/mountains. It's such a treat to be out there all alone, so peaceful and mindful. Quiet. Still.  I've been exploring alot of new places and now that its light out longer I can even get out after work. Luckily I live close to alot of great trails and places to explore that are relatively close.

Not much else to report other than I've signed up for a bunch of 50 km and 50 mile races this season so will be doing a fair amount of travel to new places exploring some awesome new routes.  Fashion photos will be coming soon :)  Hope you are all well.
