Fitness Gear for Fashion Girls

Fitness & Workout Gear for Fashion Minded Chicks

As someone who isn’t a fan of bright colors, or giving up my fashion style identity while working out, it’s difficult to find fitness gear that reflects my personality! I understand the psychology behind eye catching fitness clothing (i.e. bright colors = happier mood!) but it’s the opposite case for me! When faced with bright colors I become discombobulated and unfocused, thus making my workouts less effective! I need calm tones, muted shades and a sense of serenity when working out. Recently I started the hunt for “the perfect” workout outfits for myself and realized there are probably a lot of fashion-minded girls like me who don’t wear brightly colored clothing, and as a result, don’t see the point in wearing them to exercise! After lots of searching I’ve found some great pieces and had to share with y’all! I’m watching the post office box for mine to arrive and am already so excited for everything to finally be matching! A few sets of matching, good quality exercise outfits are one of those “30 before 30” things everyone should have on their to-do list! Since I’m nearing 29 now is as good a time as ever!

Michael Kors February 2017 | Paris Meets Prep

I don’t follow the runway shows (except for Dior & Elie Saab; be still my heart!) but after seeing the Fall ’17 Michael Kors collection come across my social media I had to check it out! The instant vibe I got was, “Paris Meets Prep,” and somehow the whole collection looked startlingly familiar… My Pinterest board, “5th Avenue at 5am” could have been a literal inspiration/mood board for this collection, which is why I fell in love with it!

Michael Kors February 2017 Runway

These are my 12 favorite looks from the MK F17 runway this month:

Give me all the navy blue and white! Things I love about this collection: The platform heels, wide shoulders and tapered waists, wide belts, double breasted men’s wear cut jackets and coats, pinstripes, and all the suit separates you can mix and match!

Do you follow runway shows every season? Who are your favorites and how do they give you inspiration for your own style?

I was looking through some shots I took of some beautiful French hotels I stayed at last time I was in Paris and it inspired me to shoot a little boudoir theme collection of my January Favorites! Paris is the easiest city to fall in love with, don’t you think? 🗼❤️

Inauguration Style Inspiration [part 1]

COCO CHANEL QUOTE

Firstly, let me say this is a NON-POLITICAL POST! My favorite part about watching the Presidential Inauguration (and the thing I was most looking forward to leading up to the 20th!) was seeing what everyone had chosen to wear for this notable day. I was certainly not disappointed (I’ll discuss my thoughts on Michelle’s, Kellyanne’s and Melania’s outfits next week!). I’ve always loved the power of an all-white outfit on a woman, especially if it’s a pant suit! Cape blazers, tailored coats and tapered pants are a few of my favorite ways to wear an all-white look and I loved getting more fashion inspiration from the ensembles styled on Inauguration day.

Inauguration Day Fashion Inspiration #WearWhite

Hillary’s all-business look was crisp and classic, Ivanka’s look was romantic and elegant, and Tiffany’s coat was a powerful nod to one of my favorite menswear looks; the double breasted suit coat.

While all three of these outfits ran into the $1000’s you don’t have to cash in your 401k to achieve the look! Shop my favorites below! Most items are in the $30 – $50 or $75+ range. Hover for details!
