Comfortable, Washable Shoes – Bzees

April 7, 2020

When the warm weather hits, I always have one favorite pair of sandals … usually something easy to slip on, super comfortable, and sure to go with anything. I think this season my go-to pair will be my Bzees!

Athleisure Staple: Adidas Track Pants

April 1, 2020

Well, we’re on week three of lockdown here in Silicon Valley, and I know most of you are now living under some sort of stay at home orders as well.  How is it going?  I’d love to hear from you.

Life looks really different than it did a month ago, but we’re adjusting over here!  The hubby and I each took a spare room to create work-from-home office spaces.  We’re actually preparing meals at home, instead of getting take out. The dogs are getting SO many walks every day.  We’re enjoying the slower pace.  Though watching the news turns everything into a nightmare of course.  After catching up on the news, I find myself doing guided mediations to relax.  For me it helps.

Gray Hair Transition – 16 Week Update!

March 28, 2020

Here’s my latest update on growing out my gray!  I’m about 16 weeks with no dye at all. I’m starting to get an idea of the color it will be, though I’m not sure what’s you’d call it. I asked my Grey & Proud Facebook group, and my favorite answer is “Champagne Silver” …. I’ll take it!!

 

gray hair transition

I was planning on trimming several inches at least, and maybe more, as well as putting in a few low lights to blend the shades together a bit better. But of course we’re all on a beauty treatment break, aren’t we?  Ladies, if you were ever on the fence about going gray, this could be your window of opportunity. You can’t get your roots done right now anyway. And nobody is going anywhere for awhile! Just a thought! 😜

My Current Outfit Criteria

March 21, 2020

What have you been wearing?!  When I look in my closet right now, I’m looking for something comfortable enough for the whole day.  I want an outfit I can wear for: working from home, doing some yoga, walking the dogs, curling up in my bean bag chair with a good book, and running a quick errand (if necessary).

Dressing for Shelter in Place

March 17, 2020

It’s a whole new world right now, isn’t it? Everyone is spending more and more time at home to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and the community.  In the San Francisco Bay Area we’ve even been called to Shelter in Place, and this new daily reality creates some new wardrobe needs.

This outfit above, from my previous NIC + ZOE post, will come in handy when the weather is a little warmer!

 

Athleisure

I never got on the athleisure bandwagon.  Athleisure just didn’t seem to fit anywhere exactly in my life and frankly I found it a little boring.  Well, only a couple of days staying at home and I’m eating my words.  Now I know what many of you stay-at-home-moms, retirees, and work-from-homers already knew:  athleisure is something you can put on in the morning and wear all day!  I want an outfit that is comfortable enough for working from home, stretchy enough for yoga, and presentable enough for a dog walk or a quick grocery run … in other words, athleisure!

Hey Friends …. I know … it’s getting weird out there. It’s getting scary in a lot of places, including Santa Clara County where I am.  And yes, we’re staying home.  So here’s my list of the good things about staying at home.  And please know that I’m not making light of what we’re going through right now AT ALL.  I’m just trying to keep myself positive.

WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT STAYING HOME?

#1 Your pets are SO excited to have you home with them.  Look at this girl’s happy face?!

#2 I might learn to cook. Maybe.  I’m the queen of eating out and getting take out, but I actually cooked one night last week: baked salmon with brown rice and vegetables. So healthy!  OMG, who am I?
