LBD w/ a Zebra Twist

When I walk into my gym, there is a sign just inside the front door that says “Because getting here is half the battle.” I believe that figure should be amended to something a bit more generous…say, three-quarters of the battle. Last night, for example, I was tired and just wanted to stay home and watch Family Guy with the Husband, but forced myself to put on some cute workout gear (as in all parts of my life, a cute outfit can motivate me to do almost anything) and get up and go. I told myself that I could just go and walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes if I still felt tired once I got there. And surprise, once I was there, I was able to do a hardcore workout and felt all the better because of it.

This morning, however, I’m feeling awfully sore from my bout of insanity that took place on the gym floor. A stretchy black dress is the perfect solution for a tired body, and I like the zebra and pink with it. The black flats are the try-something-new part of the outfit, as I would normally wear heels with this dress. The pairing of flats with it have 100% to do with dressing down a LBD for work, and nothing at all to do with the fact that my feet are incredibly sore from my new, uncomfortable un-broken in brown heels from yesterday.
P.S. This pink flower is actually one of a pair of shoe clips purchased at Target this weekend (thanks Ginny). I read about shoe clips about a year ago, and idolly looked for some, but I guess I put it on the back burner. When I saw them at Target, I knew they were going to be a new favorite. Unfortunately, I have yet to wear them as intended because one of them is broken! It’s an easy fix with some super glue…but wear did I...I mean the husband, yea!...put it last? But the working one looks great as an accessory, don’t you think?

P.S. Happy Blog Birthday to me Yesterday! :)
