Tee’s Me Tuesday

My silence for the last two days was due to some much-needed unwinding and a little personal maintenance. Now I’m back with a new hair cut, a refreshed state of mind, and a new crop of posts!

A couple of weeks ago I received a super-mega discount deal from my old Bikram studio (I got a groupon and went to only two classes. Shame on me!). I decided to make the most of this opportunity and sign up. It’s been a week now and I have really noticed a difference. Not just physically, but with my whole being.

This new healthy habit of mine has brought about a new, minor dilemma. I really need to reconsider my workout attire! Before when I had my gym membership, I would throw on any old, baggy shirt and shorts and go. Considering Bikram is a bit more intense (and sweaty!) I need things to wear during and something light and easy to throw on after. I did a little search and found this very yoga appropriate tee shirt!

‘Eat Sleep Yoga' Tee
Find at Sweaty Betty.
I’ll admit, it’s a little pricey. You can, however, find good quality workout gear without paying a fortune! This is what I would typically wear to and from my yoga class. This hoody is actually a bright, highlighter pink and is super cozy! As always, I gotta work Hello Kitty into my workout somehow, so I tote her around on my water bottle. As always, my chuck’s take me too and from class in style. (Not pictures: my three, sweaty towels that are very necessary for Bikram).

Tee’s Me Tuesday

I’m not usually attracted to muscle tee’s. Frankly, I think they’re a little overrated. But this one in particular made me eat my words.

Quirky Pom Muscle Tee
Forever 21 always has some of the quirkiest, and very inexpensive, muscle tees! The only people that seem to pull off this look are the terribly trendy hipster types that you see at music festival. I’ve never really figured out how to wear one of these that best suits my style, but I definitely gave it a shot! Here I paired this tee with a cute fit-and-flare skirt, a beaded cardigan from J.Crew, mint Converse high tops, and a super cozy rose colored scarf.

back against the wallThe bad news: I’m catching a cold. I haven’t been sick since I’ve graduated thus making me a huge baby right now. The minuet I started to sniffle and felt my throat get sore, I started complaining and downing thousands of milligrams of every vitamin I come into contact with.IMG_9249Whenever I feel sick and I don’t have time to curl up in bed and watch Simpson’s reruns, dressing up somehow makes me feel a whole lot better! The brighter colors, the better! One of my favorite dresses from Modcloth and my new lipstick and eyeliner shades from N.Y.X seemed to do the trick yesterday!IMG_9257IMG_9264IMG_9267IMG_9313IMG_9325It was so blustery yesterday! I was so happy with the crisp chill in the air. That wind, however, mussed my do! I had to constantly brush it down with my hands in every shot. Oh, well! It made for some cute pics. Happy accident, I suppose!IMG_9339IMG_9351IMG_9362IMG_9365IMG_9369I got these chucks somewhat spur of the moment. I have been waiting for a pair to come along for sometime now. After a year of wishful thinking, browsing eBay for cheaper ones, and crossing my fingers every time I stepped into a Crossroads Trading Co., I broke down and paid full price for them. No regrets! These shoes are definitely paying off. I’ve worn them everyday since.
