The Scene
Today I hit the gym at 7 a.m. BEFORE work. Wear the new beige Champion pants I bought yesterday with a great mint top - think cute outfits are going to be the key to consistency.

Feeling amazing, surprisingly less ravenous and more alert than usual. Am pondering doing a 12 week boot camp class that starts next week. Seriously, WHO AM I???

Only downside to being “get-in-shape-girl” is that I don’t have time to straighten my hair. So am trying to rock the Carrie-curls though my hair really needs to be longer (by about 4 inches) for it to look very Sex in the City. Sigh.

The Outfit
Theory chocolate slacks
Marc by Marc Jacobs sleeveless mosaic tunic
in blues, beige, brown and purple (o my!)
Purple long cardigan
Wool camel overcoat

The Accents
Coach beige and brown heels
Louis Vuitton Speedy bag
Marc by Marc Jacobs aviator brown sunglasses
Me&Ro gold hoops with turquoise danglies
Brown plastic charm bangles

The Grade

The Commentary
Proud of the color combos in this outfit and the layering.
I have resisted the long cardigan look as too librarian but am realizing that it can work with less matronly pieces.

I heart MJ tops. They are always such
a swirl of color and to-die-for girly details. His pants are not so good on me but his tops make me sparkle.

By the by, though I am over Coach as a brand (has become too middle America for me which translates as down market) I still really love these heels. They were one of my first adult purchases and are still holding up 6 years later.

Am totally over winter – it is not my strongest sartorial season.

love the gym outfit, btw. i fully believe in looking cute at the gym is a huge motivation for getting there consistently. how sad is that? if you haven't already checked them out lululemon and lucy both have adorable workout gear that is both cute and functional :)
