reading and running

I know, I know, I'm not supposed to be looking at the floor but I couldn't get to sleep last night and well, oh well. Nothing to report. Have been doing amazing on running 10-15 miles every week this year (with the exception of the crazy elbow/Vicodin haze week). I think it shows too - I've got to give myself a pat on the back for those legs... now if only I had any sort of motivation to do crunches. I just don't. I can't. I won't. I've also been biking a few times a week. It's FINALLY nice out, I THINK (and HOPE) for good. 

Glasses - Prada
Cardigan - it's a Jones NY I've had forever, years ago it got three burn holes in it from my idiot smoker friends (it was on a table while I was dancing and wound up on top of an ashtray, back when you could still smoke in bars), so I added a bunch of buttons to cover them up!
Dress - thrifted Converse sample from Fake Target - I don't know how it's supposed to be worn and it's way too big, but I think it's fun like this! Wrinkly and wrapped up with string and an unraveling hem! Click to enlarge and see the crazy wrapped up midsection!
Shoes - Chinese Laundry

Ok, I'm just gonna leave it at this little bit, I have headache (perhaps due to lack of sleep, perhaps due to mega eyeglasses prescription and I've been reading all day - it's a deadly combo!) Can't complain though, who else gets paid to sit around reading books at work?

Those shoes are THE most delightful shade of blue. And hey, way to make lemonade out of a smoker-damaged sweater, lady!

Hello!
I have been bitten and am intruiged by the fashion blog world. I have been a closet follwer of many fashion blogs for a while now and have been inspired to start my own. It seems like a great way to "push" your own personal fashion boundries while getting encouragement and critisism from fellow fashion bloggers, while forming new friendships. Anywhoo.... check it out if you like.

I also love your shoes!
Love your style and your staircase!

here's the thing, darlin'....if you are freaking RUNNING mileage per week, your abs don't have to have situps! to me, they are easy. i lay down, do my sit-ups, do my push-ups, do my "bridge" exercise, and wah-lah....i've only spent 15 minutes, and all was done right in my living room floor! i do this several times a day...maybe 4...and i can tell it makes a difference. i look in the mirror and catch my upper arms and go wow...those belong to ME! lol. i haven't been walking my daily mileage because it's been so yucky here and the treadmill and eliptical bother my back. i'll be so happy to see cloudless skies and sunshine so i can walk. it makes me feel better. ok...how's that for a record-setting comment length?!?!?! did ya miss me? lol.
