Last week, I set a personal goal to wake up every day at 6:00 a.m. I have always wanted to be a morning person, so I am doing an experiment to see if it is life changing. I have read many articles about how morning people have extra time to themselves to exercise, pack lunch, drink their coffee – whatever they feel like doing before the day begins. The notion made me jealous.
Since I successfully woke up at 6 a.m. for a whole week, we had to go out to celebrate the accomplishment.
I am definitely going to continue waking up early next week, and I will report back if it is indeed life-changing. Having this blog and a journalistic reason for waking up early really helps me get out of bed!
As a bonus, I’m doing the 21 Day Fix fitness dvds every morning. The program lasts for 3 weeks, or 21 days. The workouts are tough, but fun. I’ll report back on my experience and with some before and after photos for those who are interested. I personally love before/after photos, although not necessarily of myself. But I’m biting the bullet and sucking it up for you guys. Yikes!
And now on to the outfit. Spring has finally sprung in DC. I picked out this fun pleated midi skirt from ASOS. Remember my tips in this post about picking your proportions wisely? The midi length definitely makes me look taller. I paired the midi skirt with a layered blouse (mine is old from Francesca’s) but this, this, and this are all beautiful and affordable options, and would make for a similar outfit.
Finally, these block heels. You guys, they are PERFECT! The camel color goes with everything and the block heel is more comfortable for walking than a stiletto. I had to track them down because they were sold out in my size everywhere, but I recently found them on Zappos in plenty of sizes. They also have them in black at Nordstrom. I know they are a little bit of a splurge. Here is a less expensive option, and also here.
