I’m locked out of my office right now, so what the heck? Blogtime.
Tonight there’s a class at my gym that I need (okay, not need… but really really want to and will regret it if I don’t) to take, and between the time I leave work and the time it starts, there isn’t really any time for me to stop by my house and change. Solutions:
- I could pack my gym clothes and leave them in my car. But then I’d still have to change at the gym, and I’m already short on time. Besides, those would be some super cold clothes (high of 30 in Boston today, whatup).
- Okay so I can’t change at the gym… so what if I packed everything and brought a bag with me to work and changed there? Plausible, but I really didn’t want to have to carry an entire change of clothes + sneakers.
- Combine work and gym clothes into one awesome outfit. Checkmate.
I got the idea from the lululemon Off The Mat blog challenge, where one woman works a few pairs of lulu pants into her professional and fitness wardrobe. It gave me a great start for today’s outfit.
Not all the items are exactly what I’m wearing, but it gives you a good idea.
The Wunder Under pants are the base for work and gym. Right now, they act as leggings under my dress and later they’ll be workout pants in the gym. The Nike top is layered under my dress for a little more warmth, and allows me to really quickly transition into gym attire later. I have my athletic socks on in my boots, and my sneakers are in the trunk of my car. The only other thing I actually packed was my new Helly Hansen merino base layer. I got it on clearance at a running club event last night :) I figure it’s better to put that on post-workout rather than get my jacket all stanky.
I know a lot of you take the time to exercise during lunch at work, but does anyone regularly try to wear athletic but professonal-looking items to easily transition into a workout later?
Oh and yes, I finally made it into my office :)
