SIA: Sunrise at Sunset

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter · Style Imitating Art

This past weekend Jason and I went up to Lake Geneva so I could run a 5 mile race and party with Valerie and friends.

I know this photo is out of focus, but I think it looks kind of artsy, right? Anyway, I ran a great race and then we danced for like four hours (the race started at 2:30 pm). When you’re in your mid-30s there aren’t a lot of chances to drink beer and dance, you know?

Sadly, I did not win the dance competition (although I know who did….) but I had a really fun time regardless.

Anyway, when we got home on Sunday afternoon I wanted to snap a quick photo of the outfit I’m wearing today as inspired by Jen’s Style Imitating Art pick. The painting she picked is called “Sunrise” but we grabbed these photos at sunset.

In my year-in-review of outfits, Jen commented that this top stuck out to her. I think it’s because it’s clearly the perfect thing in my closet to wear for this painting inspiration! However, I do tend to wear it in very similar ways every time.

P.S. Can we talk about my quads/hamstrings in that center photo? I mean, I know I’ve been working on them but, dang. I think it’s probably those that got me to my fastest 5 miles ever on Saturday. Seriously, guys, weight lifting has made me such a better runner it’s crazy.
