What do you wear when you’re going to eat 1.5KG of BBQ meat along with sides like Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Bacon Beans, Slaw, Brioche, topped off with healthy serving of Cronuts and coffee?
Some adjectives that popped into my head while I was getting dressed were baggy, stretchy, elasticised, comfortable, did I mention baggy and stretchy? So that’s exactly what I did. I pulled on my elasticised waist jersey skirt, baggiest black tank and even my most comfortable bra and I was ready for any food that was coming my way.
My Sunday was looking up. The sun was shining, the day was getting warmer, I couldn’t see a cardigan, jacket or hoodie in sight AND i stumbled across this awesome graffiti of jousting knights riding prawns on the way to lunch.
KNIGHTS. RIDING. PRAWNS.

I’m not entirely sure what flicks the switch from relatively healthy eating to the eating habits of a teenage boy going through puberty, but it happens every Friday at around 5pm. Surely enough post dinner time I have eaten something either deep fried, cream laiden, smothered in all types of cheese imaginable, a type of fatty meat and/or as many carbs as I can think of. Trust me come Friday evening, I have consumed either 1, or sometimes all of the above. Top it off with a healthy helping of Ben & Jerrys, Fro-Yo or if I’m feeling fancy a Messina creation and there’s my Friday, Saturday and Sunday night literally on a giant plate.
Coming from someone who is what you could say, somewhat lactose challenged, it does not make for a great couple of days.
Suffice to say, come Monday, I want to run a hundred miles, bench press a hundred kilos, attend a pump class and finish off with a Yoga routine. And so comes today’s outfit inspo, because nothing makes you want to sweat it out like some shiny new gym gear and Nike’s trademark quote.
Just Do it.

As someone who would live in track pants and hoodies all day if I could, the ‘sports chic’ trend has been a god send.
No longer is my old grey sweat shirt banished to be couch potato, gym or sick day attire. Throw on a pair of heels, som jewellery and old grey is free to proudly roam the streets, bars, pubs and work places.
Breathe in the fresh air old grey, the world is your fleecy oyster.
