Sweat to Street to Eat

by LCCotter on April 8, 2012

Hi friends. How’s life treatin’ ya? Hope the weekend was FILLED to the rim of good stuff. This weekend was pretty low key at the Cotter House. Training (hubs), Chores, Eating, Sleeping, and Easter service.

Let me tell you something we’ve come to realize lately.

The Cotter’s do not have much style. Wait, let me rephrase that. The Cotter’s do not wear enough normal clothes to have style. ha! In fact, it has been a month since we’ve worn jeans or a real outfit. And guess when that was? Yep, on the plane ride home from New Zealand.

Are you laughing yet?

But this weekend we got to dress up for my favorite holiday, Easter. I busted out a skirt that I bought 2 years ago, which still had the tag on it. ohh man, that just shows you how I shop, right?

So here ya go, a little “Simple Style” Sweat to Street Weekend.

"Fashion" "Fitness" "FitFluential" "Fashion Link Up" "Fitness Clothing"
Hosts:
Family and Life in Las Vegas (Emily)
Wild Things RUN Free (Charlotte)
Running and Cupcakes (Samantha)
MCM Mama (Erika)
Boobs, Barbells, and Broccoli (Tenecia)

***IF YOU WANT TO FOLLOW SWEAT TO STREET ON TWITTER OR PLAN ON TWEETING YOUR POST, PLEASE USE THE HASHTAG #SweatToStreet***

Sweat to Street has been created as a place to link up your favorite outfits of the week as a new Sunday blog feature. The idea is to have some fun and change it up!Each week we encourage you to post one workout outfit and one outfit you wore that isn’t fitness related.

What are we wearing?

Wild Kiwi & k-swiss (Hubs’ Sponsors), Gap, H&M skirt, Lulu pink pants, and um ya, that’s about it. My husband has enough Kswiss gear to last him 10 years, or until he retires and puts on 20lbs. Whichever comes first. haha.

Oh I forgot to mention Sadie. Sadie is wearing dirt from the trails and a very old Petco Purple Collar. I think it’s about time we update her wardrobe. Winking smile

And just for kicks, I’m throwing in a few of our Easter Eats. These are definitely COTTER STYLE!

Girl, I have zero style! I’m like you and prefer to be in sweats/workout clothes. I really like that skirt tho!

Heck ya! Brin over some of those Easter tamales. I’ll provide the wine. Your header has style! Loving the new look!

tamales are a must for any holiday, right?

HAHA, I have like Noooo style! I swear, if I could, I’d just dress like a tramp 24/7 :p.
You look SO cute in your yogi attire and stripey skirt!

This weekend I made your berry crisp healthy bites- OMG awesome! I LOVE your recipes!

Glad you had a chill weekend:),

Wait- there are clothes besides “work clothes” and workout clothes??

Happy Easter Lindsay!

apparently. haha, i know, i feel the same way.

Lou April 9, 2012 at 1:57 am

I love the little sunflowers, too cute :) Sunflowers just make you smile. Man these days, I just can’t be bothered with clothes/style/fashion… if I put something “nice” on, you can bet your bottom dollar Misty will smear food/boogers on it within 30 seconds. Plus 7 years in the fashion industry totally killed a lot of my love for clothing!

Comfy is best… yoga pants/shorts/singlet = hooray!

Kath (My Funny Little Life) April 9, 2012 at 4:14 am

Happy Easter, Lindsay! I actually find you are a stylish person! Okay you may wear a lot of sportswear, but it’s always stylish sportswear! :D I feel you have a sense of what suits you, and I like that very much.

My style is casual and a little sporty. I just sorted all my clothes and realized I have about 15 hoodies. :D

Reply

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 7:47 am

i think i have about 10 hoodies. Best purchase ever! and i want your socks you had on yesterday.

Lisa @ RunWiki April 9, 2012 at 4:21 am

I love Sadie’s outfit.. I was wearing the same thing yesterday on a egg hunt with my kids. haha .. You look gorgeous!.. I have always wanted a pair of those Lulu pants.. hope you had a nice Easter. xo

It was great, thanks! And yes, many tasty treats :)

Allie April 9, 2012 at 4:41 am

I LOVE your new layout!!

I have NO style what so ever. Last Tues I went to a movie with 4 youth girls from my churchs youth group. I wore leggings and a hoodie(I was seeing the midnight showing of Titanic) and I basically got a LECTURE bc I wanted to wear black leggings with a dark blue hoodie. It was INSANE. So yeah, I guess I have no style either.

Reply

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 7:48 am

leggins and hoodie are STYLISH to me! trust me, i bet you looked cute.
p.s.
Been praying for ya. how are things?

Reply

Allie April 9, 2012 at 9:42 am

I felt STYLIST but the girls told me I couldnt wear black and blue?! What the HECK?! I seriously didnt care!! For one I was going to be sitting in a DARK room for 3 hrs and 15 minutes waiting for a boat to sink on the big screen in 3D and I wasnt trying to impress anyone so I didnt care! haha

Im doing okay. I am still feeling lonely and out of the world bc it feels like everyone is getting into relationships or engaged or popping out kiddos and I just feel SOO left out. But its okay. I have 13 days till my FIRST half marathon and Im SERIOUSLY freaking out!! I feel as if I didnt train enough and Im just worried Im going to fail. Still havent found a teaching job for the fall, but I did find a SWEET job for the summer so I guess thats a BONUS!

Heather @ Dietitian on the Run April 9, 2012 at 6:27 am

Easter tamales?! I’m coming to celebrate with You next year. Delicious.

After a few months of working at lulu, I realized I had more luon in my wardrboe than anything else. It was quite the challenge to “re-learn” how to dress without something tight and stretchy. ;)

Reply

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 7:49 am

I blame you and dorry for getting me hooked on lulu. Yep!

Reply

Heather @ Dietitian on the Run April 9, 2012 at 6:28 am

P.S. where have I been?! LOVE the new header.

Reply

Abby April 9, 2012 at 6:33 am

Your blog is most certainly styling and profiling? As for me, I would LIVE in my yoga/workout pants if I could, but work does not allow for that ;) However, I do wear jeans and running shoes most of the time, quickly switching to said yoga/workout pants when I get home. I have no “real” style, just comfort ;)

Reply

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 7:50 am

ha, we are one in the same abby. comfort is style. And as for the question mark, i like it. We are questionable these days anyway, right? hehe

Reply

Abby April 9, 2012 at 6:33 am

I didn’t mean to use a question mark. Your blog IS styling and profiling! (Exclamation point.)

I also love your style, you can rock that skirt just as well as those lulu pants, and you rock them like a pro lemme tell ya! Simple style is good in my book!

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) April 9, 2012 at 7:57 am

I could live in my work clothes (workout pants and tank tops). I actually hate forcing myself to put on street clothes to go out after work. Although, I hate getting my butt checked out by creeps, so that’s the only thing that really forces me to change. I hope you had a great weekend!

Reply

jobo April 9, 2012 at 8:29 am

the pink lulus are hot!! I love them! And honestly, I don’t wear jeans very often either, during the week it is lulus all day and then usually barre n9ne, and only on weekends when I am actually going somewhere do I wear ‘normal’ clothes, so I feel ya ;-) Ah the joy of working from home! Happy Easter friend! (love the new blog look btw!)

Reply

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 7:39 pm

i think we should boycott jeans and dress up pants, yes? LULU FOREVER!

I really love this idea! Can anyone join along? The sad thing is I rarely get out of my lulu yoga capris these days, so I might only share one week’s worth before it becomes too redundant haha.

Reply

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 7:41 pm

yes, do it! join! i think it would be fun, a lulu photo swap. haha.

Shannon April 9, 2012 at 9:18 am

My weekend style was work apparel… dark wash jeans and a white, button-up polo… but yesterday was my last day!

So, it that a green band-aid on your finger? If so, that is for sure some awesome style. =)

Reply

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 7:41 pm

hehe, yes, that is a green bandaid, my only color in the outfit. :P

Tara April 9, 2012 at 9:48 am

I love the new look!! I have to say my style is running clothes and pajama right now because I’m on spring break and I’m just relaxing. It’s nice not to worry about how I look!

thats a good style, don’t forget the hoodies, right?

The blog looks great! And the tamales at Easter sound like a great idea as well.

I wish I could wear workout clothes all day everyday. Is that bad? I even design women’s clothing for a living. Mostly dresses! So Ill ask again is that bad?? lol (ps I never wear dresses)

I just can’t help it. I feel more comfortable in workout stuff. I just wish it was warm enough, it is still a little too chilly so I have to be putting on the jeans a little while longer. Counting down the days to summer!!!

LCCotter April 9, 2012 at 8:31 pm

oh man, i would be complaining all day. I am such a tomboy though. I hate dressing up, unless someones styles me. haha.

One workout outfit and one non-workout outfit each week? Pretty sure that’d be the same two outfits every week for me. Okay, so not really, but I do tend to wear the same things over and over and over and over…

If I looked as good as you do in my workout outfit I’d probably wear that all the time!

Reply

Jan April 9, 2012 at 3:02 pm

I mean as you do in YOUR workout outfit. You aren’t wearing my outfit. LOL

There’s a reason I could never participate in the sweat to street… I never wear regular clothes! Okay maybe once a week, but then it’s def not something I want to brag about. I don’t know how to dress myself any more! Some one help! ;)
