Today started out with a surprise pair of brand new Nike high tops from my boyfriend (how cool is he?) and continued with an unexpected abundance of beautiful sunshine, which my fellow bunheads and I enjoyed after company class this morning. We did a little ballerina-style tanning (gotta love those leotard lines), drank Seven Stars iced tea and soaked in some much needed Vitman D. Now the rest of the company is headed back into the studio to get made up, bunned-up and warmed up for the opening of Up Close On Hope tonight. As for me, I’ll be taking my sweet time putting on a fancy outfit, blow drying my hair and attending the show from the other side of the stage for a change. It will certainly be an interesting experience for me, as this will be the first show I’m not performing in since I joined the company 3 years ago. But you know what? Sometimes it feels really good to have the pressure off your shoulders for a few performances. And whose shoulders is that pressure coming down on, you ask? Well take a look and see for yourself:
Aren’t they a bunch of cuties?! Merde to all my little Festyheads tonight! :)
My pinterest boards are getting pretty clogged up, so I figured I’d share a few things that I would love to be rocking this season. First, in a sea of pigeon-toed fashionistas donning all black outfits, this interestingly tailored wool blazer from Madewell caught my eye. I love its unique shape and refreshing light gray color. When these charcoal suede and leather Nike’s popped up on my pin-filled screen, I knew it was love at first sight. Even if they only come in men’s sizes (what is up with that anyway, Nike?!), I’m still picturing them with skinny jeans and a varsity jacket. Next up, a few Free People items- surprise, surprise. This embellished peterpan collar sweater is to die for, no? And if anyone is searching for that perfect leather jacket, FP’s black motorcycle jacket has come to save the day (plus it’s actually vegan “leather”…animal friendly- yay!). Last but not least, I’ve been lusting after Ariel Gordon’s initial necklaces ever since spotting them on Pinterest some time ago. They are delicate, dainty, and adorable…need I say more?
I’ve never been one to wear sneakers. To me, they’re constricting, sweat-prone, and should be reserved for working out. With running sneakers deemed unacceptable for every day life and all other form of sneaks completely out of my comfort zone (chucks-a bit too middle school, high tops- perhaps if I were slightly less blonde/perky), I thought the world of laced-up rubber-soled shoesies was impenetrable. But that was before I saw these beauts on one of my favorite fashion blogs, Sincerly Jules. They are the immaculate spawn of a Liberty x Nike union. They somehow marry the youthful, urban look of high tops together with that bohemian Liberty look that I am so very “into”. Plus there’s a hidden wedge built right in! Sneaky, sneaky, sneakers.
Just a little update on the workout/cleanse the roommie and I started Tuesday…
Today my roommate/partner in crime/workout buddy traveled to the Cape (lucky duck!) to sit some babies, and I surprised myself by continuing the workout regime all by my little old self. This may seem like a small act of simple self-control…but let me just say, people, I am SORE. Not your average sore, either, but 3rd-day-into-new-fitness-routine-after-several-months-of-increased-couchtime, fiery pain in my back, arms required to stand up from any position because my legs are like jelly, S-O-R-E. But like they say, it’s good to feel the burn…no pain no gain…sweat is fat crying…you know the schpeal.
Anyone else trying to get in better shape? I raise my homemade, delicious and nutritious, post-workout protein smoothie to you, cheers! Oh and here are some pictures that might help you along (I know they’re kicking me in the buns!)…
P.S. Dang, Miley has a nice body, huh?! I hate this phrase but- prime thinspiration!
