How is everyone? I am good, holy crap we are down to about 1 month!!!!
In honesty i have been a bit of a vain girly girl my whole life. I’ve done dance, cheerleading and gymnastics. I have no problem leaving the house without makeup on and it doesn’t take me hours to get ready but i enjoy being a woman. That being said i have been trying to figure out how to remain somewhat feminine out of the trail.
I will be dirty, sweaty and smelly; my hair will probably be up 80-90% of the time and ill be in clothes that will be progressively getting looser and looser…..and grosser and grosser. I won’t have any makeup on for close to 6 straight months and will be wearing the same outfit almost everyday.
Knowing all of this, i have decided to make an effort in small, but still practical ways. I bought cute hoop earrings to wear on the trail, it is amazing what simple earrings will do.
Hoops are a little more sanitary than studs when being left in for long periods of time since they allow more breathability.
And i bought a workout skirt, technically its a skort. It has spandex shorts underneath. It is comfortable and it is wicking material. So i can be comfortable, practical and still cute.
I know i am a dork, but being able to be a little girly out there is something that is important to me and i think will help me deal with the constant dirt and grime.
What do you think about me trying to maintain some femininity?
Talk to you soon!
