I was watching "What Not to Wear" one day and they were talking about only wearing tennis shoes to the gym. Hmmm. I guess I buy groceries at the gym because I wear tennis shoes in winter when I go out. At the end of the day I do not want to walk around in my work shoes and they are not even spikey heels. Those came off a long time ago. I would be so out of place in NYC or any high fashion location because I am not a fashionista by any stretch.

It's Monday and my computer's not cooperating!

For me, being dressed up means wearing a bra.

Ah, but even in NYC in the summer, workout clothes, tennis shoes, and a general, overall, "sloppy tourist" look, prevails. I worked on Wall Street, then later near Times Square, and it was always easy to tell when summer had arrived (and it wasn't the temp). Busloads of camera toting, fanny pack wearing, folks who indeed looked as if they were headed to Golds gym (or maybe the beach?) invaded the business districts. These areas in NYC were areas where EVERYONE still dressed like they were attending a wedding. Suits, ties, cufflinks, womens business suits, heels, you get the picture. One local told me, that was the reason that any self respecting New Yorker just had to have a place in the Hampton's for the summer. Of course I had to make a living so had no choice, but I did enjoy that people still made attempts to look nice. I mean if its only about comfort, lets just all go out in pajamas and houseshoes.
