Fashion Friday

24 Feb

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! Something occurred to me the other day – I never write about non-running fashion. I’ll write about running shoes, and compression garments, etc. all day long, but I never write about what I wear when I’m not running.

A lot of people will say, “If I could live in workout clothes, I would.” I am not one of those people. I love to get dressed in “real” clothes. My day job requires me to look somewhat professional, and I enjoy dressing up and looking cute on the weekends too!

For my very first Fashion Friday – I’m going to share with you one of my favorite work outfits from this week!

Me Top Half w-HeadWhole Outfit

Top Headless Half

Unfortunately you can’t see the stripes in the pants really well – and I thought I had taken a picture. They’re black, white, and purple. I love to wear a top with striped pants that brings out the color of the stripe.

What’s the other thing I love about these pants? They’re about 7 years old. So anyone that says “Oh, I don’t like Old Navy, they’re not quality, blah blah blah…” Sorry, you’re wrong.

Here’s where I got what I’m wearing:

Headband – Sparkly Soul

White Tank Top – Aeropostale

Purple Top – Gap

Pants – Old Navy

Cardigan – Ann Taylor

What is one of your favorite fashionable things to do, like me matching my shirt to my stripes?

    Super cute outfit. I also LOVE to dress up and my favorite thing to do is match accessories (Jewelry) to my clothes.

    Unfortunately I have no “need” to dress up since it’s not required for work. Although I do like the feeling of getting dressed up for special occasions. Happy Friday!

    I’m with Heidi – as a personal training, my gym clothes are my work clothes! But it’s fun when I do “get” to dress up..cute outfit! 🙂

    Super cute outfit! I love dressing up for dates…especially the sushi date-blogger style variety 😉 I also don’t mind dressing up for work (the one day I’m in the office a week now LOL) and LOVE accesories and shoes to make/break an outfit. So fun! BUT I can’t lie – I DO love my workout gear too, so comfy and sporty 🙂

    Yes!!! I love my sparkly soul headband!!! And I really need to get over to Old Navy. It’s one of my favorite places to shop–I always find great deals there!

    Like you, my sister has adopted her Sparkly Soul headband as perma-fashion wear, not just workout wear.
