No Pain, No Gain

Skirt? Thrifted (similar here or one with a check pattern here)  Jean Jacket? Taluha, thrifted Tee? Joe Fresh Shoes? Derek Lam Earrings? Bebe (similar here)

I wanted to write a thrift post today. I had the subject matter decided upon and the pictures ready but the words can't seem to come out right now. It's like I have thrift writer's block... or would it be writer's thrift block? Either way, I am coming up short; a frustrating feeling indeed.
And so we have an outfit post instead. Only problem is that I can't think of much to write for that either. I might as well point out that this $4 skirt has served me very well over the last two years as I have worn it many times (here, here, here or may favourite here). But beyond that, I have nothing of interest to add. 
Unlessssss...
... you find it interesting that I decided yesterday I was going to become one of those people who, like, go running and stuff. So I bought pink running shoes and ran my little heart out until my Robyn tracklist was exhausted. Today I am so sore that I had a hard time climbing those church steps for outfit pictures. Is that interesting? You find my pain interesting?
What's wrong with you....

I love hearing about other people's pain. :) Not really--well, maybe a little. I'm a runner and love it more than anything!

This outfit is freaking awesome--like all your outfits. I'm in love with the shoes and the earrings.

Oh, I love this! What a beautiful color on you. Those earrings are magical.
I always get really gung ho to go running...and then I run for a couple of days and decide that I stink at it...haha! I'm much more of a bike rider I guess :) Hope you heal soon! :D

Robyn has been my playlist of choice for the past two days spent polishing exhibit cases. Oh, yes, I lead the glamorous life. I end up dancing, and then the construction workers end up laughing.

You've convinced me it's time to bring my jean jacket out of retirement. I love it paired with a bright midi!

As for the running, best of luck making it through the sore muscles to the other side!

Haha oh you're one of THOSE running people now ey... ;) Good for you! I started a gym membership recently, and the first week was very painful... But hey, it means you're doing something right!

ahha I go through phases of wanting to be "marathon runner". It usually lasts about a month until I get preoccupied with something else I want to be. Good luck!

I love that your "boring" posts are still about 20 times better than most people's blogs at their best. Take heart, Yen: you're always interesting...especially when you wear that insanely awesome skirt and earrings that are longer than my hair.

Now, the important stuff: when are you and Matt coming to Chicago? Oh, this summer? Great! Let's talk dates. :)

Please may I? said...

Loving the lighting in these photos, it creates great atmosphere to them.

As for running, we have a treadmill as british weather is shocking and its fair to say I hate it with a passion. I know its good for you but I run like a demented elephant, which is not a pretty sight.

I hate running, but at least it's mutual, because running definitely does hate me!

Not much of a runner so I went the Zumba way and love it now! Love the skirt and how you've worn it differently everytime!

Only you could write about nothing and still make it funny. Your skirt certainly is the color for spring. I love it when I get something cheap and can wear it to death.

I do love that skirt! Those shoes are super cute too!
