Skippy Says: Give Up Already (OOTD)

Am I a bad person for wanting people to start breaking their New year's resolutions already? That's a rhetorical question. It's just that the gym has been so crowded this week, and the girl in front of me in class almost punched me in the face with her dumbbell as we were doing shoulder raises. Plus, the line for the shower after class was so long that I seriously considered skipping it all together. What? You can't smell photos. And other than that, I have no shame.

  2. I hear ya loud and clear. The gym has been super obnoxious this week! I had to fight for a machine. The blue in your polka dot shirt looks fab with that scarf. Also, I'm coveting your greenery. We've got nothing but drab snow.

  3. I totally agree! I went at the most random time yesterday and still had to wait for a cardio machine, and all of our lockers were full.

    Moving on to happier subjects, your outfit is spectacular today! I love the polka dot top with that scarf, the combination is sooo cheery! You need to teach us all the fun ways you tie your scarves.

  4. Haha, don't worry, they'll all be gone in about 1-2 weeks.

    I love that scarf - please ask your mama to go back to India and get me one?

  6. Bahaha! That's hilarious about the gym - I'm so on board with you on that one, I want to some space in Zumba class, please....
    Love the scarf + polka dot combo! I already have both in my closet, can't wait to try it out. Your pics are gorgeous.
    Also: is that your backyard?! Be still my heart.

  8. This scarf is gorgeous, and I love your polka dot shirt :)
    I'm not the type of person who goes to an actual gym but I give them two weeks tops. That's how long my 'resolution' to work out always lasts. But I do yoga in the privacy of my own home and do not bother strangers at the gym. ;)

  9. I adore this outfit! The scarf and the shirt (I have such a weakness for polka dots) are PERFECT!

    and don't worry about the gym - they'll quit eventually.

  10. Love your polka-dot look! I've heard that most New Year's resolutions last about two weeks - that's why I plan to start going back to the gym on the 15th ;)

  12. I love that top, and the way you're wearing it with the orange! Beautimus! I have a friend who works as a receptionist at a gym and she said they had at least ten new clients that first day back from the holidays. It'll thin out soon, I'm sure!

  15. HAHAHA. not at all. I sometimes wish it too! My gym is really crowded, and I hate having to eye machines so people won't use them! I super adore those polka dots-- they're cute!

  16. Can you please ask your Mom to go back to India and get me one of those scarves? Thanks. Loving that polka dot shirt! And those jeans fit you so well.

    I hear ya! Check this out. Last night I was one of four people in my contortion class. Me and four 11 year old girls. Am I a bad person for in my mind being all, "FACED little girl. My back bend is WAY better than yours." See? I'm way worse than you.

  19. I'm so glad someone else has had this thought! My classes have been so crowded this week I almost punched the wall in turbo kick and almost danced over another in Zumba...as some of the other "regulars' and I were joking around in the locker room-give it a few weeks and things will be back to normal! Oh...and LOVING the polka dots!

  20. Dude, you show that 11 year old girl!

    This is why I always wait until mid-January to hit the gym...I can't deal with the crowds! Love the top as well, and don't even get me started on your awesome purse.

  22. I totally feel ya! It's hard just to find a place to park, and I go in the middle of the day while most people are at work! Crazy gyms and the people who think they're going to go to them forever but aren't... Ha! Oh well. Love that top! It's even better with that super cute scarf :)

  23. Blue + orange/red look great together. Like the deep blue of that purse - great deal for $5. :)

  24. Haha well if it makes you feel any better, I've already broken mine :( My 'healthy diet' lasted for exactly two days :( But then I decided then I still have the [russian] Old New Year to start all over again. Isn't it exactly why we have it? :)

  27. I love this look! Such a pretty top and scarf. And I totally know what you mean about the gym. The first month or so sucks. Luckily being sick I've been skipping out of the gym so I haven't had to deal with it too much.

  28. This is such a cute outfit! Love it. Don't go to the gym for a month and then you'll have it all to yourself! Happy New Year anyway. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog - hope to see you there again!

  29. One (of many) reasons why I don't like gyms - I don't like showering there. So if/when I do go, I have to do it after work or something so I can come home and shower up. Call me germaphobic, I guess!

  30. Yup loving everything about this whole outfit - I've never met a polka dot I didn't like. I NEED that bag, what a great score!

  31. This outfit is so chic, especially loving the scarf and shoes. What gorgeous colors together with the blue! It's so funny how the gyms are packed first week in Jan. But I guess we are all thinking positive which is good :)

  32. Loving that polka dot top with the orange scarf! What a great color combo.

    And this is why I don't make resolutions to go to the gym because I never even make it to the parking lot, it's always too crowded ;)
