My running commuting has been limited the last several weeks because of mid-week work travel (since I have to travel with my laptop, before and after a work trip are blocked from run commute because I need to get the laptop home or back to work).
But the last time I had a week where I anticipated multiple run commutes, I filled up my garment bag with several outfits, and I've just been slowly working my way through them.
I wore the last outfit in the bag yesterday, and I looked ridiculous.
Yesterday was my hottest morning commute so far this year (mid-80s and SUNNY, but only about 70% humidity). I got to work, and went straight to my office. Followed the routine there -- unlocked my laptop and turned it on on the docking station, filled my water bottle, got out my hair/makeup/shower bag, and then went to get my last remaining outfit.
Ugh. Thick khakis and a dark cranberry cardigan and sweater tank. In reality, if it didn't look so out of season, it would have been fine since our office is way colder than I like. But it definitely looks like a winter outfit. I'm not even sure why I would have packed it in May.
Anyway, I went down stairs and showered but I couldn't stop sweating as I dried my hair, even trying to use the cool setting on the hair dryer. I wish there were a huge fan in the locker room.
I got dressed in my appropriate-for-a-high-of-75-not-a-low-of-85 outfit, and went back up to my desk. I decided to shut my door and just work in my sweater tank until I cooled off. I hate doing that, especially since I have a glass wall so my unprofessional sleeveless look is still visible to anyone who looks, but it felt necessary. I peeled off the cardigan, which was 100% stuck to me and my sweater tank had massive wet spots on it from my sweat.
I finally stopped sweating and cooled off, and put my cardigan on and opened the door. And then worked all day.
Not until I was getting changed to run back home did I realize I'd worn the cardigan inside-out all day long. And it has a massive tag in the back.
So I looked super awesome yesterday. Seasonally inappropriate attire, worn inside-out.
I'm in Philly working next week, and again the week of the Fourth. But the next garment bag will definitely be all summery clothes.
