If you’ve been a reader for a while now, you know I’m a huge fan of Stitch Fix, the personal style delivery service. Well it just got even better because now they include shoes! They’ll offer brands you know (Dolce Vita, Seychelles, Franco Sarto, TOMS, etc.), as well as some exclusive styles just for Stitch Fix. They carry sizes 6-10 (with half sizes) and the assortment of over 200 styles for spring will assure there’s an option for every budget, taste and lifestyle.
In celebration, Stitch Fix asked me to put together a “day in my shoes” post. I always love getting a glimpse into other bloggers’ day-to-day schedule so I thought this would be fun. One thing I love about my job(s) is that no two days look the same. I may be spending the day shooting workout pictures or spending the day at my computer. One day I might be cooking up a storm and photographing food, the next writing posts in between teaching classes. This is a general idea of what my weekdays look like …
5:00 AM Wake Up
The puppy slippers aren’t just a cutesy blogger photo prop–my feet are permanently cold so I tuck them into a pair of slippers or socks immediately after hopping out of bed. Joe is still sleeping so I usually rummage around our studio apartment using my iPhone as a flashlight until I can find some workout leggings to wear, brush my teeth, and then quietly sneak out the door. I’m about as low maintenance as it gets–to the point where “low maintenance” is becoming a euphemism for “slob” (haha).
6:00 – 9:00 AM Teach
shoes are SeaVees from Stitch Fix! + leggings are Michi
If I’m teaching at the Back Bay studio, I’ll walk over; otherwise I hop on the T around 5:20 AM to head to the North End. I teach barefoot or in grippy socks so I usually just wear a pair of easy slip-on shoes to and from the studio. Oh, hello, new SeaVees! 🙂
9:00 – 10:00 AM (ish) Workout
Classes at BTone are stacked so that I teach two or three back-to-back. If there’s another class immediately after I teach, I’ll stay and take it.
Otherwise, I’ll get my own workout in elsewhere. That could mean strapping on a pair of running shoes, spin shoes, cross training sneakers or going barefoot. I’m always switching up my workouts. Lately I’ve been spinning at least once a week to get in cardio without the impact of running (gotta save my knees for those long runs!).
10:30 – 6:00 PM Werkwerkwerkwerkwerk
Side note: I’m pretty confident I have the lyrical prowess to write Rihanna’s next smash hit single. Work work work work work summadumma derkderkderkderkderk. Or the vintage classic: I want that cake cake cake cake cake cake cake, cake cake cake cake cake cake.
Anyway, shoes. Like I mentioned earlier, blog work varies from day to day. Some days it means sitting at home in my pajamas answering emails and categorizing site tags but that doesn’t make for a very glamorous blog post now does it?? 😉 While it is possible to do 95% of blogging right from my apartment, I like to take my work elsewhere at least a couple times a week so that I don’t go stir-crazy. Also, this may sound odd, but sometimes I swear I’m more productive if I get dressed (in real clothes, not pajamas), look like a fully functioning member of society, and surround myself by other people working. Anyone else feel that way?
After a post-workout shower, I’ll throw on a casual outfit and head to a nearby coffee shop or the Boston Public Library (<– on warm spring days nothing beats working in the BPL’s courtyard!).
This outfit is literally head-to-toe Stitch Fix! SeaVees shoes, Mystery sweater, Mavi jeans, Pomelo jacket and I can’t find the bag brand name. The best way to request anything you see on blogs is to pin the picture to the Pinterest board you’ve shared with your Stitch Fix stylist.
Early Evening Blog Events, Yoga or Read
Some evenings I’ll have a blog event to go to (a sponsored group fitness class, dinner, meet-up, etc.) or, if I’ve spent all day at my computer, I’ll try to go to a late yoga class or do a YouTube flow on my own at home. If either of those doesn’t happen, I’ll do a little reading.
9/10:00 PM Bedtime
If I’m teaching the next morning, I do my best to go to bed at 9. That doesn’t always work out though. Some nights Joe doesn’t get home until 9 and let’s just say he’s not exactly quiet (ha!).
