To Hang With the Seniors

I showered at the YMCA today.

Years ago, when I was a single lady I used to hit the gym before going to work.  That was the last time I had reason to shower at the gym.
Back in the day, I'd shower at 6:30 in the morning with the rest of the "professional" crowd.

Today, I showered at 11:30.
Let's just say the crowd was a bit more mature.

And the towels at the Y are much smaller.

White Top: Gap; Polka Dot Skirt: I Made it (See how HERE)
I SWEAR I ironed this skirt.  But 4 hours of retail work + a seat belt did me wrong.Striped Tights: Target; Black Booties: DSW
Earrings: Won in Giveaway from With a Wink and a Smile
Necklace: Inherited from my Mother in Law

I can report that I got a clear picture of what's to come in the not-so-distant future.

Alright, I'm dying to hear your AWKWARD gym shower moments. Fess Up.

I love this skirt! I can't believe you made it! Thanks for sharing how to do it, I've been wanting to try a DIY project soon. I'm your newest follower!
No awkward gym shower moments, I'd rather be grimy and shower at home then do a gym shower!

I love the fact that you made your skirt! I wish I had inherited some sort of creative gene...

So cute!

How was the mature crowd?:D

I used to take quick ones with my friends before but I'm not a gym person anymore.

I like the skirt and how you've paired it with the belt.:D

Have a great weekend!:D

lol! I usually shower when I go home, more because I'm too lazy to bring all my stuff to the gym with me. Pretty skirt!

Lydia Marie said...

Oh wow, that definitely sounds like an interesting experience. I have to say I've never showered at the gym before, I've always had time to go home.

PS I love those tights!

Cute outfit! I'm not at all modest, but for some reason I always avoid the gym shower, so I haven't had any awkward experiences in that arena. The rest of my life, though, that's another story.

By the way, I nominated you for a Happy 101 award on my blog. I hope you'll check it out and participate if you have time :)
