Friday Five

1. Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2014

Oh Ladies of the Pink Palace, do you know what you do to my heart and bank account? I'm obsessing over the new dresses and prints, but unfortunately, I am saving up for a new pair of E. Porselli flats. My only reprieve about the new arrivals is that I do not see a revival of the original classic shift design.

2. Half-Marathon Training

I have always been interested in minimal/barefoot running since I read an article years ago from a tall height runner like myself with knee issues take up minimal running after he read and researched a couple of South American tribes that still practice barefoot running today. Research shows that barefoot running helps keep a person in their own proper alignment as everyone is built differently, so I bought a pair of Vibram Bikila FiveFingers to try it out. I was worried about potential pain, but the exact opposite helped. Hint: take it slow and get used to the shoes. If you can only last five minutes in them, then only wear them for five minutes.

3. March Madness Update

My Cardiac Louisville Cards won thanks to powerhouse Montrezl Harrell and Cool-Hand Luke Hancock...wore the accessories I that I had on during the 2013 Championship game plus my red and black E. Porselli. New superstitions arising...

4. Sporty Trend

I am trying the sporty trend because I consider myself "athletic" and it is super comfy.

5. Smoothie Recipes

Does anyone have any good smoothie recipes they want to share? I like to enjoy them after a workout.

  1. I love your take on the sporty trend! I really don't know if I could pull it off, but I have contemplated giving it a try. I went to the Lilly store in Cincy this weekend and surprisingly left empty-handed. I love Lilly, but I felt like a lot of pieces were strapless (which my flat self cannot wear!) and the pieces that did have straps looked like little girl dresses. Better luck next season, I guess?
