day out to workout

split screen

As I write this, it is 20 degrees out and we are having a snowstorm.

It feels wrong to be posting these photos from August, but I realized I never shared them and now seemed like a good time to get them up.



You may know already that I have been learning hip hop dance for about a year and a half, and I now take 2 different classes: an intermediate class and a beginner crew.  It has been so great to bond and grow with the other dancers, and I am so excited that our winter session is starting in a few days! Woo!



My classes are in the evening, so I often need to wear something in the day that I can quickly transition for a workout.

The best way to do this is by having an item that works for both looks.  In this case, it’s my tank top.



Although it is CLEARLY an active top (stretchy material, mesh details), I think it looks cute with my skirt!  And the necklace really helps…accessories can transform an otherwise athletic look.

I didn’t want to have to change my bra before class, so I wore a sports bra with neon details.  I could have just as easily worn a black sports bra, but my skirt is bright and colorful so it was nice to have a bit of that peeking through the top as well.



To flip the look, I changed into workout capris (though I definitely could have worn them under the skirt for an even simpler switch), put on some high top sneakers. and slapped on my favorite hat.



By the way, my hat is from an AWESOME game called Prey.  It takes place on a space station orbiting earth and you have to kill aliens, help survivors, and try to escape.  It is set in the future, but has an alternate history where JFK was not assassinated (which changes the whole Space Race).

I don’t always pay close attention to the storyline when I play games, but this one sucked me in.  I finished it back in May, but now I want to play it again so I can make different decisions and alter my game ending.

And just because I’m a doof, I’m going to leave you with two strange photos…I really just did these to entertain Dave while he was taking the pics 🙂

first day of summer vacation


It’s funny going through these photos, since they were taken back in June. It was the first weekend of summer vacation, and I had just said goodbye to my amazing students the day prior. (Including a very emotional hug with a 5th grader – we had really connected over the past five years, and she was sad to be leaving me to go to the middle school! So sweet!)

down by the station



Back in August 2015 I took some photos at Depot Park in Bedford, MA.   I love this location at the end of the Minuteman Bike Trail mostly because of the vintage passenger car that’s parked there.  It was once part of an old Boston commuter line which ran for over 100 years from 1873-1977.
