Getting Olympics Ready

With only 3 sleeps until the Rio 2016 Olympics kick off, I really need to get my butt into gear and get Olympics ready. I really don’t mind settling into the couch for a fortnight to watch the world’s finest athletes strive for gold, chips in one hand, wine in the other, wondering ever so slightly why it’s not me there ๐Ÿ˜‰ My fave sports to watch are:

  • swimming
  • gymnastics
  • diving
  • equestrian
  • cycling
  • and whatever Aussies are competing in!

I’m super psyched for our flag bearer Anna Meares. She is such an amazing athlete who has achieved so much in the sport of cycling and her comeback after breaking her neck is nothing short of awesome.She is one of hubby’s cycling idols and definitely is an inspiration for not only those involved in cycling but in all sports.

For such a long couch stint, one must be prepared and comfortable. Style is often compromised when viewing at such unsocial hours and for such long periods so I’m looking to up my game. I’ll be going for a sporty luxe look, that really only hubby will see, unless you want to join me on snapchat (username: lizzypag) for late night Olympics chat?! Taking inspiration from our team uniform colours and the olympic medals, I’ve chosen a few Olympic viewing outfits for myself ๐Ÿ˜‰
