When it comes to clothing, since the majority of the blog's focus is what happens on the mat, I thought it might be nice to take a second to talk about what goes on off the mat. What do you wear in your day to day life when you're not running to the yoga studio? Are you constantly in workout clothing? Always in a suit? Dress?
Luckily for me, my job requires that I wear either workout clothing or pajamas (hello, I work from home), so anytime I wear jeans it feels like I'm getting seriously dressed up. It's a far cry from my days as a Spanish teacher, where I used to (sort of) dress up for work. I sometimes miss it - dressing up for work, though to be honest, I never actually found comfortable shoes and only wore wide leg business pants that covered the majority of my foot so no one would notice I was wearing a variation of a slipper (not kidding!). While I do sometimes miss getting dressed up and having a place to actually go for work, I wouldn't trade my current job for anything.
The other day, ECCO kindly sent me a pair of spring Touch 15 Patch Ballerina Flats (love!) and a Felicity Cross Body Bag that I thought I'd share here in an Off the Mat post. The shoes are super comfortable, but I was especially psyched about this bag. The only bags I own are giant and can hold everything but the kitchen sink. That's pretty convenient for travel and when I need to tote a lot around for work, but it can be somewhat inconvenient for running errands which is why I love this pale pink, lightweight cross body bag.
Despite its petite size, the bag can hold quite a bit. I always love to see what people carry around in their bags, so here's what was in mine the other day: My phone (with the best case for my credit cards and a little cash), a coconut snack, business cards and holder, another snack (I don't think you understand the level of my "hanger"), lotion and sunglasses.
So let's talk- what do you wear off the mat? And, tell me, what's your favorite spring shoe trend? Tell me below in the comments for a chance to win an ECCO shoe card worth up to $250!
