OOTD: Seriously, stop wearing pajamas like they're going out clothes...

Yesterday was a highly productive day.  I got up, did two loads of laundry, went to yoga, deposited a check, bought cupcakes, sent a check to reserve a cabin for Lake Tahoe, did more laundry and went to 3 parties.  Whew!  It was tons of fun though.  I found a groupon for the area to get 25 yoga classes over 2 months for $25.  For anyone that knows how much a yoga studio typically costs, that's a steal!  The studio is a little further than I would have liked (about 20 minutes away), but it's in a nice downtowny area that I can explore before or after classes, so I don't mind.   I used to think yoga was for wimps, being a more high impact workout type person -- soccer, kickboxing, snowboarding and the like -- but I was looking for a way to tone my upper body and yoga seemed like a good way to go.  Man does it make muscles sore in places that you wouldn't expect.  When was the last time your hamstrings and your hamstrings alone, were sore? I have pretty strong quads, so it's really bizarre to just have the back of your legs hurt.  But whatever, I love the pain :P.  Now that a major milestone in my work project has been reached, I'm trying to do all I can to get back on the workout band wagon.  It's definitely a work in progress.   I've signed myself up for a few soccer leagues and enlisted the help of some new workout buddies to keep me honest and from being bored.  What do you to keep your workouts from going stale?

Anyway, I'm going to start with yesterday's outfit.  It's nice and dressy because the BF and I were going party hopping.  I basically layered a lace top over a chemise, and I <3 it!

Outfit Details
Cardigan: Anthropologie Charlotte Tarantola Field Game Cardigan

I was desperately trying to catch the light while I was getting ready, so this is actually what I wore partying after I realized I'd be walking a lot.  Funny how a half an hour can make a difference between the picture above and all the rest, huh? The Chinese Laundry pumps provide a good second option though, no? 

Aaand my attempt at a model shot.  Don't laugh.  Seriously.  I see you!

I'll be back later tonight with today's outfit post.  Also, all that laundry I've been doing?  I'm trying to get all my 30 for 30 picks clean so I can take pictures of them!  If I'm lucky I'll get this done tonight, otherwise, tomorrow.  I don't have a chance beyond that since February starts on Tuesday!  What is 30 for 30 you ask?  Check it out here.
I'm starting to love this whole blogging thing.  It's super fun!  Thank you for sticking with me if you're following.   I totally missed my 1 month anniversary, but that's ok.  1 month anniversaries aren't important anyway.  Right? Right.  

That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by!
