Fashion Emergency

by Meghann on January 25, 2011


I’m filming my pilot for Izon Orlando this afternoon and I have no idea what to wear!

IMG_4097.JPG IMG_4098.JPG IMG_4101.JPG IMG_4103.JPG  IMG_4099.JPG   

Personally I’m a fan of the self promotion route, but I have a feeling that’s a no. πŸ˜‰

What do you guys think? It’s a fitness type show where I will be more than likely jumping on a trampoline for part of it (I promise I’ll explain more on that tonight) and I have black yoga pants for the bottom. All suggestions and thoughts are welcomed, but please keep in mind that I am limited to what’s already in my closet.


Oh, and we start filming in two and a half hours!

Yikes! Don’t you love leaving things until last minute? πŸ˜‰

It has been a busy morning around here. I haven’t stepped away from my computer for more than 5 minutes at a time and I still have mucho amount of work to get done before I leave. Isn’t being self employed grand?

I think the more zoned out I become with work, the hungrier my stomach becomes. Shouldn’t it be the opposite?

This morning I took a mini break to nibble on some Peanuts and Smores & Pretzel Goldfish.


When lunch came around I had no desire to cook anything and instead with the random plate of what ever is in my fridge route.


I just happened to have black beans, avocado, nut butter fries, broccoli, and cherries in my fridge.



I’m a little nervous about filming today. I’ve never ‘hosted’ anything, though I was a ‘weather girl’ in middle school ad was involved in tv production in high school.

Anyone have any pointers? My problem is I tend to talk fast – i know I need to get over that one!

1 Ali January 25, 2011 at 2:21 pm

I like the orangy pink long sleeved top you have in one of the pictures. It looks nice with your coloring!

2 Jessie January 25, 2011 at 2:50 pm

I agree with Ali!

3 Ali @ Ali on the Run January 25, 2011 at 2:21 pm

I like the long-sleeved peach/pink top best. The color will pop and balance out the black pants nicely. Plus, you won’t have to worry about any, uh, slip-ups while trampolining! Remember, take deep breaths, smile plenty and just relax. You’ll be great!

4 Erika @ Food.Fitness.Fun January 25, 2011 at 2:22 pm

How exciting! I personally like the orange shirt – good luck! πŸ˜€

5 katy. January 25, 2011 at 2:22 pm

I agree with Ali, the orange/pink one with the long sleeves. It’ll also stay hooked on your hands well while you’re bouncing. I’m guessing Rebounderz? πŸ™‚

6 Katy January 25, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I really really like that salmon/peach-y colored top! It fits you well and the color is great! It looks casual, but fitness-y and nice at the same time!

7 Holly @ couchpotatoathlete January 25, 2011 at 2:24 pm

Just take lots of deep breaths before you go — as silly as it sounds that always helps calm me down.

And I like the first pic first — the white shirt with the gray wrap/cardigan thing.

8 Amanda January 25, 2011 at 3:02 pm

I’m with Holly on the shirt preference.
Make sure you have a full deep breath so you don’t feel like you need to gasp for air as soon as you start talking.

9 DCRunner January 25, 2011 at 2:24 pm

Sweater top is the way to go… versatile enough that it doesn’t scream sweaty workout wear, but it looks a little more put together. But if you want to scream workout wear, I’d go with the orangish/pinkish (what color is that?) top with the thumb holes.

10 alex January 25, 2011 at 2:25 pm

My suggestion would be to stay away from white or black, as well as anything with logos. If you are a nervous sweater (sorry, but it is a reality for some!) then consider a tank or dri-fit. My favourite is the pink/salmon. Nice bright colour, looks active and ‘sporty’ without looking like you just screeched in from a workout! Good luck!

11 Amanda @ Eating Up January 25, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Take a deep breath and pretend the camera is your friend and you are having a conversation with it!

I like the very first one best, with the salmon colored one as a close second!

ps. Your closet is like 3x the size of mine!! Look at all those clothes!!

14 Avery (Young Aspirations) January 25, 2011 at 2:28 pm

I like the short sleeved blue one on the bottom right. You won’t get hot and it shows off how fit you are!

15 suki @ [Super Duper Fantastic] January 25, 2011 at 2:28 pm

I think the first few votes are for the peachy/salmon top! It would work well if you plan on doing some fitness type stuff.

17 Katy @ A Healthy Shot January 25, 2011 at 2:28 pm

I like the peach top or the white tank/black hoodie! I think public speaking is just something that comes with practice. My best advice is to take some deep breaths and don’t be afraid to stop and take a pause to regroup your thoughts. Good luck πŸ™‚

18 Mari January 25, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Good luck!

I am a fan of the white grey combo too, and I think the cardi will look really cool bouncing on a trampoline…

19 Lindsay@cookveganlover January 25, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I like the first one the best! it’s the cutest!

21 Jenna January 25, 2011 at 2:34 pm

I like the coral long sleeve top best, or the blue short sleeve one if you think you’ll get too hot in long sleeves. The brighter colors look the best on you, and I think would look better on camera. Good luck!

22 Caroline January 25, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Well if we’re ruling out the Meals and Miles shirt, I think the top left is most flattering, though I don’t know how it looks without the cardigan (I’m thinking bra-straps like the top right are a no)

23 Erin (Travel Eat Repeat) January 25, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Finally, my broadcast journalism degree comes in handy! πŸ˜‰ Just remember to breathe and speak slowly and clearly. It’s better to speak a little slowly than rush/mumble your words. Have fun!

24 Lindsay January 25, 2011 at 2:36 pm

I like the first one…looks more put together. But I guess if you want/”need” to look my “work-out girl” then the peach one πŸ™‚

25 bethany January 25, 2011 at 2:37 pm

orange/peach/pink shirt FOR SURE! You look awesome!

26 Heather January 25, 2011 at 2:37 pm

I love the orange shirt!!! Colourful πŸ™‚

27 Kim @ girlevolving January 25, 2011 at 2:39 pm

36 Lisa January 25, 2011 at 2:45 pm

I like the pinky-orangey shirt, maybe with a black/grey cardigan over top? Sporty but still professional and if you’re going to be bouncing on a trampoline, maybe not a tank top? πŸ™‚ Have so much fun!

37 Jillian @ Reshape Your Life January 25, 2011 at 2:45 pm

I think the Meals and Miles shirt is fun, but my second choice is the short sleeved blue shirt. It’s sporty and flattering but doesn’t scream workout shirt.

40 Rae January 25, 2011 at 2:48 pm

I have the same issue. I work with a speech coach for my job and he suggested taking intentional pauses…like, after you make a point, pause and take a breath. Lets you slow down and make the audience think you are making an excellent point πŸ™‚ good luck!

45 Mari January 25, 2011 at 3:03 pm

What about your Chicago marathon shirt?

46 Sarah for Real January 25, 2011 at 3:05 pm

I like the light blue tee. I agree that the color of the coral shirt is night, but the high neck line looks a little strangling. The little scoop on the blue tee is more flattering and elongates your neck.

47 Michelle January 25, 2011 at 3:05 pm

What’s wrong with a little self promotion? I would probably wear what’s more comfortable and bring a backup just in case! Good luck and have fun!

57 KitKat @ Pursuit of Happiness January 25, 2011 at 4:02 pm

Since it’s for a fitness related show/you’re going to be jumping around on a trampoline I would definitely go with one of the bottom two choices (the pinky orange or the short-sleeved blue). I would say for filming purposes, no patterns or graphics! I say go with the pinky-orange. Good luck! πŸ™‚

60 Marg January 25, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Short sleeve blue is more flattering in the color. I think the salmon is giving you a pink tone, kinda like what yellows do. I do like the cardigan one, but if you’re jumping maybe not!

61 Jamie @ CherryOrchid January 25, 2011 at 4:15 pm

I love the pink top, it looks great on you! Anytime I have to film something I just pretend I’m making a video for my Mom, it reduces the nerves and fast talking. Good Luck, I’m sure you’ll do great!

62 Courtney January 25, 2011 at 4:23 pm

The orange/pink shirt – very cute.

63 Heather @ Side of Sneakers January 25, 2011 at 4:33 pm

Exciting!!!! I like the 1st outfit- it looks put together, but still appropriate for jumping around. πŸ™‚ I like the peach shirt too….and of course I’m partial to the North Face shirt πŸ˜‰

I highly recommend the long sleeve orange top with a tank under it in case you get to hot jumping on the trampoline. Are you testing out Urban Rebounding? πŸ™‚ Thats the name of the trampoline class I take in NYC!

I’m in the same boat when it comes to public speaking. I always need water and chapstick because my lips and mouth get so dry. I also tend to fiddle with my hands and hair. I still haven’t overcome it so I probably don’t have any advice. πŸ™‚
