I'm not in to a fashion. I'm not fashion inept, but I don't pay attention to the trends. I know what looks good on me and a lot of times, the trends don't. Either colors or cuts don't work for my complexion or body type. No wonder I'm so picky. My biggest fear in college was getting a job that required me to wear suits every day. I can't tell y'all how uncomfortable suits make me. Thankfully I can rock business casual and I get to wear jeans on Fridays. With my sneakers.
In high school, I had 4 pairs of shoes: running shoes, cleats, flip flops and snow boots. Now I have running shoes, two pairs of flip flops (one's fancy), and 1 pair of dress shoes. Still only 4 pairs of shoes, and my work shoes wouldn't even qualify as kitten heels. They're also open-toed so my toes don't get blisters. I'll even wear these shoes in the winter since cold toes >>>> blisters. Anything that interferes with running is out.
The only bullet point that doesn't match my style is #18. I wear my contacts all the time, partly for vanity, partly because I need to wear sunglasses, even on cloudy days. I found this article fascinating since I fit practically every bullet point listed. The 20/80 rule is me, maybe even 20/90. Don't get me wrong, I love shopping, but I rarely buy.
Can we talk about coming back from vacation? I know it was only 4 days, but it was 4 days of me eating yummy crap. I did 2 miles on Tuesday and I felt every gram of that yummy crap. My legs felt a little heavy, my form was awful, and I couldn't find a rhythm. I stuck with 2/1 ratios and just got it done. Don't worry, Allie's here to help me foam roll
