Jammie Dress - Must Be Monday

I am so sore today from the 10K race yesterday! I'm sure I'll be stiff tomorrow too.

My time was 1:14, which, although not even close to my personal best of 1:07, was not too bad (remember, I racewalked it). I finished 6,421st overall (out of 13,000+ people), 4th overall in the competetive walking category and 1st in my age division. Yee haw! The gold is mine this year! I will show off the medal when I get it.

Anyway, seeing as I am so sore, I had to wear the jammie dress:
I last wore it last summer (here). It's so comfy and stretchy and I don't have to think about layers or belts or assorted gew-gaws.

Even the stuff was minimal:
Another pair of kitten heels (my most comfortable ones) and my bendy necklace thing.

I know I haven't been around much lately - life is crazy. I'm hoping things will get back to normal after this week. I miss all your blogs!

Dress (I.N.C.), shoes (Kenneth Cole Reaction, swap from Cat), necklace (gift from Elaine).

  1. Its so cool... but don't the pantyhose detract from the "jammie effect"?

  10. Yes !
    the outdoor stairs- i love this location.
    First, congrats on the race - and i am certain you will show that gold !!! 'Cause you are getting it.
    Now, on to the dress. It's perfect. I thought I had a jammie dress on but then I realized I had to hold my breath all day long - so no jammie for me.

  11. Congratulations on the medal!! I too wore my pajama dress yesterday. Of course, I threw on tights under is when I got home so I didn't have to sit like a lady... the only downfall to pajama dresses!

    Sal, thanks!

    Sal Kaye, thanks!

    Lorena, it's growing on me. I'm just waiting for one of my neighbours to catch me. It's not a jammie dress if you have to suck anything in!

    Cara, thank you, m'dear! Nicely done on your jammie dress!

    Paula, oh, yes, it's the best. Thanks, hon!

    Thanks, Valleycat!

  17. I don't own many things with patterns. Or many things that are green. But I love this.
