In case you’re new to my life, let me tell you something about me. I am NOT a morning person. I love sleep.
However, my current job starts at 8 AM and I end at 5 PM. I’m lucky in that there is a gym in my office building so I can usually sneak away at lunch and get in my workout.
Lately, though, my schedule hasn’t allowed for lunch time workouts. And since my evenings are devoted to husband, dog, dinner, and chores (and I don’t get home until after 5:30 most nights), I was left with one choice if I want to keep up my current strength/half-marathon/triathlon training: workout before work. Which means getting up at 5AM. Blurgh.
On days when I’m packing my bag to shower and get ready for the office at the gym, I try to pack the fewest number of pieces that still make a put-together outfit. My normal solution? Just add bling.
Turtleneck sweater, jeans and flats are all fine and good but I think a blank canvas like this sweater is just calling out for something. Thankfully I had this Le Tote necklace handy. It adds just a little extra interest to an otherwise simple outfit.
In fact, it added so much interest that I got several compliments from people at work!
Trying to think in the morning is virtually impossible for me so I pack my gym bag the night before. Top, bottom, shoes and bling is an easy combination to remember. Try it. I promise you’ll like it even if you’re like me and hate mornings.
