How is everyone doing with their New Year’s Resolutions? Like me, I started off strong, and as the winter sets in here in NYC, staying motivated isn’t always the easiest. I have always been an avid runner, and this year I have vowed to switch up my routine just a bit. One of my favorite things to do is take a fun dance class with friends. They are all over the city, and you literally can let loose, burn calories, and have fun at the same time!
Active wear has become such a huge part of our everyday life, and when J. Crew announced a collaboration with New Balance, I was so excited for the launch. Not only are the pieces functional, but they are pretty hip and playful. One of my favorite pieces is this windbreaker. It is not available yet, but I am already putting myself on the waiting list. A big Spring trend is star patterns.
This whole look is totally my style. I love the color blocking of both pieces, and the back of this top is not only sexy, but breathable. The pants fit perfectly, which is a huge plus. When working out, there is nothing worse then having to constantly fidget with what you have on. I usually don’t work out in just a sports bra, so this little bit of stomach that shows is just enough for me to feel really sexy and strong at the same time.
Can we talk shoes? This literally is the biggest component for me in working out. When it comes to running I need something lightweight that floats on air. Many companies are now making running shoes like this, especially Nike. My biggest rule of thumb is to try on several pairs in the store, and take a few minutes to walk around in them.
