Today, I would like to show you what friends wore this past weekend to a casual Christmas party gathering. These are the ladies I workout with! We have known each other for about five years and most days during the week we begin our day together at 5AM. We have supported one another through difficulties and through laughs. I would not have hung in there this long and gone through the ups and downs of injuries without the encouragement of this group. They are amazing. We did not know each other before the gym brought us together and it has been so much fun. The lovely over-60, grandmother-to-be with the fabulous sleeveless top on the front row is the one who took me to the hospital at 4:45 AM when I fell and injured my shoulder getting ready to go to the gym…(Mr. B was out of town that day). These women are not only strong when it comes to weight lifting, but they also have strength of character!
This is the most flexible woman of the group! She also wore the best color to the party! I liked this shade of red with the pearl jewelry. It was so nice to see everyone dressed up…most often we are in gym clothes with hair pulled back and no makeup1
Most of us wore black that night and it worked so well with denim for our casual styles. The lovely one in the buffalo check scarf is the baby of our group, but my partner in humor. Sometimes the classes are so tough we need a laugh to get us through it. She tells the funniest stories about her life as a mom.
This is one of the party guests and she doesn’t workout with us, but I liked her outfit so I wanted to share it. More and more animal prints are becoming a neutral and even work for holiday parties. Last week, Project Runway’s second challenge was to design an animal print street style outfit. I loved everything the designers created. They were cool and edgy…like this look is. I love how she styled it with her boots.
If you are considering joining a gym for the first time, take some of the classes and see if you can connect with other women who will encourage you and ask where you are when you disappear occasionally. We all need a little support!
I found some similar pieces for some of these looks below…hope you enjoy them…and
