My daily attire has definitely changed. Now that I’m back to work in an office after more than two years of working in gyms or writing from home, I’ve actually had to spend more than two minutes getting ready for the day each morning. That means putting on make-up, some jewelry and a work-appropriate non-workout work outfit. And overall, I don’t mind it.
Being that I work at a fitness company, the office standard is a loose interpretation of business casual. There are definitely days when people walk around in workout attire and jeans are always okay. That’s not out of the ordinary for the San Francisco Bay Area, where companies are known to be extremely casual. However, I’ve been sticking to regular clothes — and quite frankly, I enjoy getting dressed in something other than leggings.
Because quite a few of you have asked about things that I’m wearing lately — letting me know you like to talk about things other than food and fitness on the ole’ blog — I thought it would be fun to give you a peek into my daily wardrobe. (By the way, I’ve linked to the most of the items I’m wearing, or something very similar under each picture.)
A week of non-workout outfits
This is a line-up of my outfits last week. And some notes: Yes, I wear my hair back almost every single day. Because after a morning workout, that sweaty un-washed mesh just needs to be tamed. You feel me? Secondly, I am far from a pro when it comes to selfies. Please proceed with caution.
Scarfing it up in flats, wearing a standard fluffy top with black pants.
Bright colors, a little animal print and my super-comfy black boots.
Blue dress, flat boots and some black tights to keep the legs warm.
Tall boots, jeans and a pop of color.
This blazer is super old, but still seems to work. And here are few more details on the jeans, top (which is a recent buy, and one that I can see myself getting a lot of use out of), boots, watch, earrings and necklace.
For the best day of the week, a chunky sweater is always the right choice.
There you have it! Next time you’re standing in your closet thinking “what should I wear to work??” Take a cue from me: Solid bottoms, a pop of color on top, and most importantly, a time-saving bun. Selfie totally optional.A week's worth of non-workout work outfits. #OOTD #Fashion Click To Tweet
