What I wore for Chinese New Year

6:10 AM

Ok, I know it’s a little delayed but I have been so bad with all of my blogging lately.  We’ve gotten hit with a snowstorm yet again so I had to stay at a friend’s house instead of going home after work.  We went to the gym and oh my goodness it was amazing.  I’m not super sore but I feel it a little bit.  We did weight lifting, squats, and I ran 2.41 miles.  Nothing like going to the gym to warm up and lose some of this winter weight.  I’m probably not going to get a membership or anything because I don’t have the dedication or time to go to the gym along with everything else I do so I’ll just go every once in a while with all of my free passes from friends.  I know, I’m horrible and won’t lose anything doing that but I’m really indecisive so that won’t help.

Anyway, what this post is mainly about is what I wore for the Chinese New Year last week.  I was told by my coworkers/friends (they celebrate this holiday) that you are to wear red and something new even if it is a pair of socks.  So I did and here is my outfit.

Poncho:  Ralph Lauren {here}
Boots:  Nine West {old}

I really hope this winter weather calms it down a notch because we’ve gotten hit so bad this winter (it’s the worst winter in quite some time).  Anyway, I hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Linking up with The Pleated Poppy and Because Shanna Said So.

  6. oh, a poncho. I love it. Going to the gym for the first time after a while always feels great. Maybe you should just try and make some time for it. You'll feel great!
