Ello, ello! Sipping coffee and writing to you from aboard the train from San Diego to LA to hang out with Jeffrey and his fam over the weekend. I've picked a seat facing the back of the train unfortunately, so it's semi-trippy to be zipping backwards in a stationary seat for a few hours ... like traveling in some kind of cinematic space-time machine. Okay, so marathoning Big Bang Theory has rubbed off on my imagination - make a show about glorified geeks and I'm hooked (my people!). Trying to edit while your screen is doing The Wobble is harder than you think. I hope you all have wonderful New Year's Eves whether curled up at home to watch the glass ball drop or out all night living up the final glam moments of 2012.

This was a really old set from August (8/14) towards the beginning of med school, but I figure the SoCal temperate winter justifies a better-late-than-never post about how to multi-task your outfits for your busy days. In my case, I had morning class and wanted to hit the gym after without having to go home to change. Start off with your basic biker shorts and racerback tee and layer on a sheer maxi and heels to glam it up. The only thing to throw into a drawstring is sneakers, socks, sports bra. Thanks Cassandra for playing photographer!

P.S. I know this is dinosaur-age news, by now, but check out my new profile on Instagram! The layout is so pretty in design - I'm impressed and the top banner is dynamic, changing every few seconds to feature another one of your pictures. If you use IG, you have one automatically too.

So cute! I love going to the gym, but fitting it in day-to-day is so hard. This is a wonderful solution, you are the queen of multitasking!x

I'm loving that skirt. I've seen a lot of sheer maxi skirts around lately, but have never been quite sure how to pull it off without crossing the 'too sheer/this is awkward' line.

Also great tips. I've only just begun regularly exercising and hated always ending up with double outfits on any given day. Nobody likes extra washing!

I've been looking EVERYWHERE for a sheer pleated maxi skirt! Question: Does it touch the floor for you w/o heels? I know you're petite...I'm trying to see how it'd fit me (since I'm so tall, I need one that's super long!)

Love the Glam to Gym look!
