I Like Girls That Wear Abercrombie & Fitch
Grrrr I turned off my alarms when I had that snow day, and forgot to turn them back on. When I naturally woke up and saw light coming through my window, I knew something was off. I totally slept through Bikram today! Me = Not Happy. Not gonna lie, I was very anxious about missing my routine yoga session. I didn’t get to get my stretch on at all this week and I’m having withdrawal!
But I made the best of the situation, threw on my workout clothes, and hit the gym at work for a different cross-training workout. I ellipticized for 5 miles (46 minutes) and then did some ab and arm work. I’m thinking of this as a blessing in disguise — lots of times my legs are sore after Bikram and I don’t want that for my 17 mile run tomorrow!
By the time I was all sweaty, my anxiety about missing Yoga was *almost* gone. I just needed to get my heart pumping, no matter the method!
Today’s outfit feature is dedicated to my readers at Abercrombie Corporate in Columbus, OH! Apparently Dani is doing a great job as my unpaid publicist:)
Abercrombie is one of those places that I wouldn’t think about going in past the age of 14, but when I was applying for a position with the company (did you know I was *this* close to taking a job there??) I got a totally different view of the store. Despite the music-filled and slightly over-scented stores, the clothes are actually really great! I got an up-close view of how well-made they are, making that higher price tag worth the money. And they sell jeans in long…I’m sold.
While some of the clothes might be too preppy for you, or you might not like that little moose logo, lots of the pieces can be great additions to your wardrobe. A&F does find ways to make their clothing fit into the current trends, so you can find fun motorcyle inspired jackets (like the one I’m wearing) and really cute tanks & dresses for summer. Plus people in Europe think A&F is the greatest thing ever, and Europeans are stylish. Right?
And if you haven’t checked out Abercrombie’s lounge-wear and intimates store, Gilly Hicks, you’re missing out. Just one look at their bras & pjs might make you start to ooze cuteness out of your pores.
Moral of the Story: While it might not be where you do all of your shopping, Abercrombie isn’t always just for tweens and teens!
More chia oats! Some people told me they were kinda freaked out by Chia seeds. Maybe because of Chia pets? Maybe because of how they gel up? I can tell you that when mixed into oats, you don’t get a gelled texture at all…just volume and oomf! They taste like practically nothing on their own –slightly nutty if anything. The taste of my oatmeal isn’t any different with them added in.
But the Chia Pet issue? That’s your own problem.
Happy Friday everyone!! Hope you have exciting weekends ahead.
