It’s no secret that majority of my wardrobe consists of spandex and workout gear. I don’t mind this and luckily have a husband who doesn’t mind this either. He knew what he was getting into: little to no make up (mainly because I don’t know how to wear it), hair mostly goes in a ponytail (unless I’ve chopped it), mostly showered, but not always a guarantee. I’m a delight; I know.
Here are a few examples from last week. Very typical of Colorado that one day I run in shorts and then a day later gloves, hat, and 2 layers of clothing needs to happen. In the summer, things obviously look a little different for me. And I do love a good running skirt. I think it is so fun to pass a male in a race while wearing a girly running skirt!
It’s not that I don’t want to look good or cute or whatever a person of my age is supposed to look like. I will just always choose function over fashion. Always. Even when it doesn’t include spandex. I have a job that requires a variety of wardrobe needs. So, it is a nice little fashion balance for me. I can wear skirts and dresses, jeans, and yes, sometimes I will show up in spandex. I think one week last summer I wore a maxi skirt to work everyday – that’s a bout as good as spandex.
I’m heading up to the mountains in Winter Park for this weekend for my work’s 2nd biggest fundraiser: Wells Fargo Ski Cup! It will be an action-packed weekend of ski competition, aprés ski parties, and a whole lot in between. I’m bringning plenty of spandex to try to get some mileage in at 10,000 feet while I am there. I hope the weekend is more of this…
