Summer is here, and what I love about California is that you can wear denim all year around. I tend to live in denim shorts with a sweater, or cute white jeans with a fun top. There are so many new trends that I always tell people, stick to what you like. For me, that is a fun fray at the bottom of a jean, a cool utility looking pair, and of course denim shorts. Whatever you like to wear, dress them up or down with a fun heel or some cool sneakers.
The overall trend is back, and yes I know not everyone loves them, but if you want to do something different try this trend. This pair is from McGuire Denim, and are sexy and playful at the same time. I paired it with my favorite swimsuit from Solid and Striped, because that trend is also going strong. Last, these cute kicks from The Greats Brand, are not only fun but super funky too.
You can make white denim, like these from Mcguire work with about everything as well! The fray on the bottom makes them unique, and a simple button up and hat keep it light and summery.
We all know I love my animal print, and these shoes from Steve Madden are so dang cute.
A most certain for me, is high waist denim short. These work with a swimsuit, a sweater, and a cool blouse. The weather is so perfect in the summer to wear them all the time!
Sundry clothing in one of my favorites, and they have branched out into cool pants too. I love that these feel very utility but girly at the same time. I paired them with my new Arkyn adidas kicks, and a cool Ivy Park crop top from Nordstrom.
No matter what your style is, make sure to pick up the denim that you love and suits your personal style!
I had the pleasure to celebrate adidas last week with about ten other female influencers, and it was amazing. They teamed up with Nice Kicks at the Mondrian Hotel for a day of celebrating the launch of the Arkyn. This shoe is amazing, just like the event and the other women that I met. We had a round table talk, and it honestly only makes me more excited about what I am doing in my field.
The setting up on Sunset Blvd. was absolutely perfect to kick off summer, and this white pair is super cute and perfect for everyone.
Nice Kicks, put on the perfect day with adidas, and gave us some pretty cool goodies, including a fun necklace, and some pampering facials along with new kicks.
Of course I wore my favorite Gazelles, and this window seat is the perfect place to chill out.
This is the other amazing pair of Arkyn sneakers that I have, and between the two of them, I will be kicking up my feet all summer!
Well spring is pretty much here! The weather is starting to get warmer, and the days are finally longer. I love living at the beach, and this is one of my favorite times of year. The days feel perfect, but the nights are still cool enough to throw on a jacket. As we know, I am all about a fun tee, mixed with well…the unexpected. These high-waisted pants from Hiptique are absolutely so adorable. They have just the cutest little floral print on them, but the shape is still more masculine. I love mixing it with this California tee, and adding a denim jacket at night. I am all about some major sneakers this spring, and there are drops galore. I definitely have about five pairs on my radar now, and that is not even the beginning!
How cute are these mint Reebok’s from DSW? I love that you can find so many great pairs of kicks for the right price there. Not to mention, I always carry a little purse filled with my favorite makeup when I am running around town, and this one from Hiptique as well, makes me smile!
Well 2018 is off to a big start, and the athleisure trend is nowhere near going away. For me, the comeback of lines such as adidas originals, Fila, and Champion have taken this to an even more cool girl level. I love the idea of pairing an edgy winter coat with some throwback track pants and cool kicks.
This coat from Guess is one of my favorites that I have purchased all year. It is not only on sale now, but you can take the pink fur on and off, which makes it playful and fun or super simple and clean. I love the faux fur mixed with olive green. I also like wearing it with my track pants from adidas for an edgy athleisure look.
The pull apart track pant is hot for 2018 and you can wear it all year long. Both adidas and Nike have some fun pairs. These are so unique as the white adidas stripe is a show off, and you can mix them up with so many different color ways. For winter I will be wearing them with my coats, but come spring a simple crop tee is perfect with a ball cap.
We all know that any throwback sneakers I can find I want! These rose gold Nike’s I found at their outlet mall on major sale. If you have one in your city, it is a must. They have tons of harder to find pairs. I love that these can be dressed up because of their shine, or paired simply with the track pant. The FORCE logo makes them pop even more. I linked a few pairs that are similar because the metallic trend isn’t going away!
I cannot believe that 2018 is here! Wow, what an exciting and challenging year 2017 was, which certainly makes me giddy with delight for what is to come in the next few months. I have never worked so hard at continuing to get the blog going, and making progress with all of the fun projects that consumed last year. January and February are going to be two crazy months of work, as I launch my YouTube channel focusing on athlete fashion as well as travel for both the Super Bowl and NBA All-Star. That being said, like everyone else, I have certainly had too many beverages and sweets, with a lack of working out over the holidays. This month my goal is to really focus on changing up my workouts, eating clean, and not drinking. I will be on camera, and I want to feel and look my best! One of the biggest goals for me is to work on my core, and what better way then to hire a trainer and buy some cute new workout gear.
I’m a big fan of printed leggings, like these ones from Beyond Yoga. I love how they are high-waisted as I find working out is much easier when I do not have to continue to pull up my pants. I love a simple sports bra from Alo Yoga. It gives me motivation when I am working on my core. I belong to a gym, but with my training, taking my workout straight to the beach is simple and fun. The sand will kick your butt.
Like many of us, we also run around all day in our gear, and simply layering a super cool and on trend track jacket is key for me. I love this piece from Puma, and a simple pair of aviator shades as well.
Lately I have been rotating my sneakers up depending on my workouts. I find that adidas work well for me when I am cross training, and Nike is perfect for my runs. These are simply clean and comfy. I also love that you can pair them with some jeans, and that these leggings will go well with a chunky sweater too. Cheers to the New Year and keeping up with all of your resolutions and goals!
