I’m headed to Colorado this week to celebrate my aunt’s 70th birthday! When we went to Colorado as a family for the first time last year, I was completely unprepared. I packed regular everyday outfits. Wrongo! I ended up buying workout clothes from the gift shop. I wasn’t complaining, but my husband might have been 😜… Anyway, I should have known, since most of what you do in Colorado consists of excercise- hiking, water rafting, zip lining, mountain biking, etc. But this time, I’m prepared! Here’s what I packed. Well, for the daytime, anyway.
I’ve long admired my friends who come up with cute workout wear outfits. Frankly, I don’t feel like I’m very good at it. I basically rely on fun leggings and coordinating sports bras. Then I’ll just wear one of my favorite black backless tank tops. I guess it’s my workout wear formula! Although, I am excited to add my new workout jacket and red tennis shoes to the mix!
If you’d like to follow along while I’m in Colorado, head to Instagram. Otherwise, I’ll do a trip recap when I get home.
Ok, I actually really dislike the word “obsession” when it comes to clothes because, well, the definition is “an unhealthy and compulsive preoccupation with something or someone.” I mean, yikes, right? But I couldn’t come up with another word! Comment below if you have a better one for me. I know there are some wordsmiths out there. It’s not really an obsession. It’s just that I’m obsessed with red accents right now. Maybe it started with my red lucky peacock fan earrings? Or was it my red lip? Or was it a picture I saw on Pinterest?
However it started, a recent happy happenstance really sealed the deal. I was forced to wear a pair of red workout socks, because I’d forgotten my own, and they looked darling with my workout outfit! I’m in workout clothes nonstop right now, and I think red tennis shoes will make my outfits look cuter and make me feel cuter! Plus, I’m headed to Colorado and these tennis shoes will be perfect for all of our activities!But then I wanted to put on a pair of heels with this blue and white skirt outfit, and all I could think was how cute would red heels be. Then I went to my closet and looked at all my dressier outfit options to see if red heels would look good with them, and it was a resounding YES! So I purchase a pair of red heels, too! After my ankle injury, I haven’t worn heels much because I’m afraid to roll it again, but since these are block heels, I think I can do it!
