If you follow me on Instagram, you saw these outfits (or versions of them) on Friday. First, I posted my apres Pure Barre outfit, then my third outfit of the day, the jeans/turtleneck outfit you see above, and asked how many times you change clothes during a normal day.
I change clothes about three or four times in a day:
- I get up at 5:30 and throw on whatever I’m wearing at home that week, which is always a pair of Simulacra pants, or my Everlane cashmere sweatpants if it’s really cold (and it has been lately), a t-shirt, and one of my older Everlane cashmere sweaters to take Dagny out and work for a few hours before I go to Pure Barre at 9:45. (you can see details of my entire wardrobe on my google spreadsheet)
- I change into whatever I’m wearing to Pure Barre
- Home from Pure Barre, I don’t usually stay in my exercise clothes for very long, other than to drink my protein smoothie and work a bit more. Around noon I’ll take a shower and change into my “street” clothes for the day.
- At about 4 in the afternoon I take Dagny out for a longer walk, and I’ll usually wear leggings and a long tee under my Icebreaker jacket if it’s really cold, or just a long sleeve tee if it’s not.
Once I’m back from her walk and if I have nothing else to do in public the rest of the day I’ll change back into whatever I put on first thing in the morning. And take my bra off…
So, 4 outfits a day? or three depending. How many outfits do you wear in a day?
Some notes about what I’m wearing:
K Deer leggings – I got these with some credit I earned by renewing my 12-month contract at Pure Barre. I’m wearing a size medium and they fit really well. They’re VERY long (I have them scrunched up), but very comfortable to work out in. I’m really pleased. Made in the US.
Sabah shoes – I struggle with these. I love them, and they basically feel like I’m wearing slippers when I wear them (they don’t have a lot of support or an insole), which is a good thing, but…I wish they were either black, or tan, not black AND tan. Of course. I got the two-tone version because I really like them, and thought they were much more interesting than just one color, and unlike anything I already have in my wardrobe. But as usual, I over think how to wear them, and have trouble treating them simply as a neutral shoe to wear with anything; I will ONLY wear them with black, and even so, it’s a challenge. I don’t wear them as often as I’d like to. But I will continue to try!
