hooray for the weekend. i don’t know about you, but this girl is pooped! in a good way. the second week of gym attendance is now complete, and i feel great. i’ve decided to knock out a workout first thing in the morning, so the alarm’s been going off at 5am… and let me tell you, athens is really dark at that time of day. once i have one month in the books i’ll cut back to 4x a week at orange theory and add 1x pilates reformer class. at some point, i’d like my routine to have 4x endurance, strength, and power classes, 1x yoga class and 1x reformer class for flexibility. but so far, so good with an average of 400 – 500 calories burned and my heart rate reaching the orange zone 40% of class time. i am tuckered out toward evening as my body adjusts to the early morning workout, and just plain working out again. but it’s a good sort of tired.
before i head on up to nyc, mr. style and i are taking our favorite german shepherd to the local frozen yogurt joint for a little treat. the temps were in the high nineties today, so it was a welcome surprise for oscar! this denim dress last seen here is back in stock which i know will make some of you happy. denim is an excellent choice any time of year but is ideal come fall. i might have gotten away with a size eight but i sized up to a ten for a looser fit, and i’m not sorry i did. have you seen the new iris apfel collection with INC? it’s pretty darn cute! a pair of cheetah loafers is ideal to wear when out and about with oscar, but i didn’t forget to add a few accessories for pizazz. a silver bracelet and tassel necklace will do nicely. don’t forget, next week it’s all about #NYFW. join me for behind the scenes action on snapchat. my handle over there is styleatacertain. but don’t worry, i’ll be posting what i wear to the shows and cocktail party here on the blog. the action starts bright and early on sunday morning when mr. style drops me off at hartsfield.
on that happy note, oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend!
