But alas, it’s now back to the grindstone at work. I am still thinking about meaningful resolutions and I am currently reading up on different ways to improve my running. Below are a selection of books I am currently looking at to figure out how to approach making my running resolutions. A full review of each book will be done eventually.

Comfortable Yet Stylish Travel Clothes

27 Dec

I have been asked to share what I wear when traveling as it is hard to find clothes that are comfortable, stylish, and can take you from one city to another. I generally opt for the black  jeggings and sweater look as it is very comfortable, takes well to layering, and can look good for a dinner out if my bags get lost (which has happened on more than one occasion). I also tend to pile on the jewelry, but I always arrive to the airport sans jewelry; I keep it in a little pouch in my purse  so after I go through security it is all in one place.

Below is a representation of what I will be wearing to take me from sunny California to gray Seattle. The only thing missing is my dark grey Banana Republic trench coat!Comfortable Yet Stylish Travel Clothes

Unfortunately that means that my updates will be intermittent through the end of the year 😦  I’ll try my best to update but may not be able to reach a computer until after the first of January.


Do any of you have New Year’s plans? I’d love to hear them!
