To boot or not to boot

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter

I’m still working through a backlog of photos so here’s an outfit I wore back in November. I originally wore it with the boots but decided halfway through the day I should have worn it with my silver flats. Something about the boots just felt too heavy too me.

So, here it is both ways. What do you think?

Anyway, I don’t have a good segue for this, but lately I’ve been thinking about hustle. On Sunday I was sitting in the window of a local coffee shop with a friend talking about my strength training ¬†and running and personal trainers. Sitting across the street from a place where I know several local bloggers spend a lot of time doing part of their hustle also made me think about how you only have one life.

I’ve got a few things brewing in my head and one of them is the possibility of getting my personal training certification. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for awhile. I don’t know yet what I’d do with it, but that’s what lead me to the idea of “the hustle”. You know, the one where you make your living doing what you love even if it means giving up the comfort of a desk and a cube.

I’ll be 36 next week and I think I’m having some kind of midlife crisis. Maybe 2016 is the year I do something crazy. Maybe not. But what will it hurt if I start with getting a personal training certification? What do you think about that?

P.S. If you are looking for the most adorable flats then may I recommend these? Why? Because polar bears, that’s why. Maybe I needed these for this outfit instead.
