My First Post with 5kFashionista

30 Sep


I’m Valerie, you can read some more about me in my about page. I’ve been thinking about blogging for a while now and I finally decided to try it out. I’m hoping it sticks.

Deciding what I wanted to blog about was easy. My favorite things to read and watch are based around fashion and exercise. Running has always been a little bit of an escape for me. I seriously think it helps keep me grounded. When I put on my sneakers and run 5 miles it feels like nothing in the world can stop me and I love that feeling. In that way I think running is so empowering, it’s one physical activity where only you can push yourself harder.

It’s funny because when I was younger I always considered myself more of a “tomboy.” I hated dresses and loved to run around outside and play sports. I still love being outside and sports, but now I actually don’t mind dresses. I’ll still take a pair of jeans and a cute top any day, but now I won’t pass on a really hot dress or skirt. I actually really enjoy dressing up and putting together outfits. I wanted to post some of my inspiration and fashion finds on this blog.

I came up with 5kFashionista because it combines two of my favorite things. 5ks (my favorite racing distance) and fashion.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts. Follow me or subscribe to my RSS feed if you like running and/or fashion. Also, let me know what type of posts you would like to see or any advice you have for a new blogger :)
