I'll start with a few photos of what I've worn to work fairly recently (It's a weeks worth of outfits, but these aren't all from one week).
I'm learning more about what looks good and not so good on me, but I think this is the last installment for a while. I am getting really tired of snapping self portraits in the bathroom mirror in the morning. Hahahahah.
There are two outfits that I wish to comment on. The first is the jeans and camel sweater (right side, second one down). I happen to like this a lot, so that is what I wore on my birthday. And yes, I had a lovely day, thanks for asking. :-)
Second is the long black skirt outfit (left side, third one down). Remember when I mentioned getting compliments on the black short skirt with boots outfit a few weeks ago? Similarly, this is the only outfit of the five from this post that I received any comments (all positive) about what I was wearing. I'm thinking I need to wear skirts/dresses a bit more often.
On to a more running-related topic. I managed to get three runs in last week topping out at a 2.9 mile run as the longest of the three. I ran again today, just barely beating a storm, and got 2.5 miles in. I'm hoping to run at least two more times this week and work my way up to a 3.5-4.0 mile run. After that, I should be able to rejoin my group and it will be back to business as usual. This whole return-to-running thing is a bit discouraging as I am so far behind where I was when I had to take a break for my knee and I'm still a bit reluctant to push too hard.
Husband & I were hoping to get in a nice bike ride on Sunday only to wake up to find that it was snowing!! So no bike ride. I guess it *is* still the middle of winter, so I shouldn't be too surprised that the weather didn't cooperate, but it had been so nice all week that we really surprised about the snow.
