2 Sides 2 Every Story

Christian Louboutin Prive Glitter Pumps, Asics Gel Cumulus Running Shoes

I’m a girly girl who has always loved playing dress-up.  I’m a wannabe jock who would have loved to run the mile at the Olympics. The first compulsion has been satisfied with a dreamy big-girl closet filled with my favorite objets d’art that would make any fashionista swoon.  The second, with regular long distance runs and occasional competitive races.  A contradiction?  Perhaps.  But I think it’s our contradictions (my list is soooo long :)) that allow us to make our own unique imprint in the world.  How about you?  Are you a series of contradictions, too?

Be back soon with more of my road trip tales.  Until then, make it a great day!

  1. Seems as if it is our contradictions that make it possible for us to maneuver through life :-) Thanks for putting the concept into words, as well as posting such a great picture!

  2. Yes! I was in the Tory Burch store in Buckhead today returning a shirt that I had coveted for months. I told them I needed to bring it back because it was too itchy…they looked at me like I was crazy. Comfort over style these days!
    P.S. Is that a band aid on your toe?

  3. I’m a Gemini and thrive on contradictions! Here are my three contradictions:
    1) I love beauty and looking my best, but I love having a “day off” where I’m in something stretchy, hair in a ponytail and no make-up whatsoever. I’ll wear my chunky Buddy Holly glasses and embrace my inner nerd.
    2) My apartment is almost perpetually messy, but when I entertain I go into Martha Stewart overdrive.
    3) Moderation is something I cannot do. I’m either in excess or spartan mode.

    Bonus: bacon and chocolate go together.

    1. Haha! What a great list—especially the messy vs. Martha Stewart! I can relate. I’ve got guests coming this afternoon and my inner Martha has yet to kick in. I guess I love the hard-deadline, as in pull it together an hour before everyone arrives :)
