The Abseil Outfit

As you would have read, I went abseiling over the weekend, and while it was a hard task, an equally difficult struggle was deciding what to wear - ok, slight exaggeration, but it was still a hard choice. While I was tempted to do it in heels, or wedges at least, I decided against it and settled on a very comfortable outfit, that was more practical than fashion.

So, it didn't hit me on the day to take any outfit pictures, so I'm afraid you're stuck with these ones, taken from a distance, but you get the gist. My jeans are ones I've worn so often that they're probably moulded to my body shape - exactly what I needed on the day. And a hoody, because it got cold at the top, and it was windy while I was coming down.
And of course, a comfortable pair of trainers. I love Onitsuka Tiger - they're really solid and served me well on the day. I was impressed just how great they were for the it. So for future reference: if you're ever abseiling down a glass building, Onisuka Tiger trainers is what your life needs.
There's a great selection of Onituska Tigers over at Sarenza. I definitely recommend getting yourself a pair - they're a sturdy shoe, that also come in a lot of cute colours and styles.

I'm guessing this is me doing some flirting:

What do you wear when you need to be as comfortable as possible?

Well done for doing the abseiling! It looks super scary and a very high tower. said...

I agree with Style Eyes! :)

I don't even know how I would go about choosing an outfit for something like abseiling - as fun as it would be do it in all glammed up, I'm sure it would be terrifying enough in sneakers! My most comfortable outfits usually consist of a turtleneck, skinnies and boots - I'm a winter girl at heart :)

This type of outfit would be tricky, I suppose some type knit would work, but when we went bungee jumping I wore denim because I wanted thick protection on my legs for some reason. :) Have a great weekend.

Good choice of outfit, heels may have been a little dangerous ;) A little red dress always makes me feel comfortable!
