Happy 9th ♥Annie-versary♥ to ASIA & me!

Humane Society

The very photo on the Humane Society website that made me fall in ♥love♥ with ASIA in the first place: her #DeepBlueNeedYouEyes 😍 ♪♫

Now that Memorial Day🇺🇸 has passed, we who abide by fashion rules can wear white shoes👟 until Labor Day!

Welcome Home, ASIA!

At least ASIA ~ as a ⛄️snowshoe❄️ ~ always has her white shoes + she & Lil’ Sis ANNIE😻 have their pink & gray paws

Since we’ve experienced way more-than-usual ❄️cold⛄️ fronts and 💦rain☔️ this 🍀spring, I’ve still found myself wearing scarves, especially since the weather did a number on my health!

scarves

During 🍀spring🌷 cleaning, I switched my scarves (that include my Pashmina shawls ~ gold from my colleague, salmon from my aunt & fushia print from mi suegra ~ + multi-colored from Edwin & chevron-striped from my R.E. student for reading @ her parents’ 🙏🏽Church💒 💍wedding👰🏻) from my 💝heart💖 door hooks to storage in this Ikea bin for the still easy access off-season

As the next school term approaches, I’ve already planned my work wardrobe for the 🌞summer🌼 📋speech🎤 class that I teach over a 📆month📅 ahead of time!

accessories

Belts & light scarves adorn my 💝heart💖 door hook + the 💍bling💎 hook rack also holds my good luck🍀 elephant🐘 mail📮 pouches + my DSLR🎥 & handy-dandy cam📷 bag👜 ~ my 💸$$$$$money-maker🏆

While I’ll wear dresses👗 or skirts almost everyday before play, I do have these bottoms for back up that pair well with seasonal 👚tops!

Workout Wednesday: Unorthodox Gear

I wear jeans to the gym!

This was from Working Out Gets Girls* one of Rick’s Man Tutorials, starring Philip Wang of Wong Fu Productions. Ok, so I wouldn’t go that far (unless they were a stretchy pair of jeggings that feel like yoga pants without showing camel toe). Actually, the only times when I’d wear jeans to the gym were when I worked at my local gym a decade ago.

Well, the weekend before last, I hit the track with my folks for the first time in a long while after Church.

My mom told me that I wasn’t dressed up appropriately.

Sandals and skirt, really?

My footwear were toning flip flops …

Not your typical workout gear

Work those leg muscles {Fit Flops in black Rockstar bedazzled in Swarovski crystals & bronze; Reebok EasyTone (my most effective); Skechers Tone-Ups (the sister sandals to the Shape-Ups MBT-type sneakers)}

… and my bottoms were a running skort.

Running Skirt

Exercise in comfort and style ~ putting this to good use @ Walk to End Alzheimers [2013] {running skirt/shorts combo from C9 by Champion}

I’d recommend these pieces when you’re on-the-go: walking while doing errands, but definitely not these open-toed shoes while you’re doing higher-impact or more strenuous exercise: running, tumbling, lifting weights, etc.

An outfit that I work out in actually offers resistance as I move!

When I went to the park to walk with my parents again last week, my mom didn’t mention anything wrong with my choice of apparel anymore!

Today, I look forward to going to the base gym (which, in my opinion, has the most top-of-the-line amenities compared to the rest of our citywide health clubs) with Evie! Enjoy your summer training sessions with a workout buddy to have fun, whether on the run or in the sun☼
