Leopard Coats and Kicking Boots!

FINALLY, it is cold enough here in Cali to put on a cool coat and rock some fishnet tights with boots. I do not know about you guys, but I have a huge crush on outerwear and probably own way too many jackets, just like my sneakers. This season, besides faux fur, I love a fun leopard print. This one is from J.Crew and right now is totally on sale at 30% off! My other top picks are from ASOS and Topshop. You are even seeing leopard fur on army jackets, and in the linings to add a bit of a funk.

Double Leopard Topcoat

I have also kind of fallen in love with hats this season. I’m usually in a baseball cap or my favorite straw summer hat, so I decided to branch out and purchase a fun beret this season along with a lieutenant hat. I have to say, it totally makes for a fun gift for the on trend girl, and adds a hint of cool girl factor to a look. The one above is only $40 at Nordstrom. If you are feeling frisky, their Brass Plum section has all kinds of bright colors.

I have partnered up with Daniel Wellington this season, who offer some of the best timepieces out there. Not only that, they have all kinds of amazing deals and bundles that they offer. The price point is great, and makes for the perfect gift. From now until December 31st, when you use my code “SUZIG” at checkout, you will get an additional 15% off. Oh, and there are additional discounts, free shipping and returns, and gift wrapping. I mean, it is a one stop shop for everyone on your list!

Sporty t-shirt dress

I also have to say, that the sporty T-shirt dress is here to stay, so why not continue to wear it by layering it the way I did here. Both adidas and Champion have my favorites. The way to make it funky for this season, is definitely with a coat like this and some jazzy fishnets. I love tights, and for me, I always try to find pairs that make my look sparkle.

Lace-up boots

Yep, these boots were made for walking, dancing, and just about anything this winter. If I am not in kicks, I turn to block style boots, and these have that utility feel to them with a bit of feminine edge. These are from Sam Edelman at Nordstrom, but you can find some amazing deals as well on Zappos. My other favorites right now are Timberlands!

Staying in Shape During the Holidays!

Well, not going to lie, the holidays are in full swing and my eating habits have already gotten out of control. How is it that we are only in the first week of December? When it comes to this time of year, I actually like to get ahead of the game and try new workouts that keep me focused so I have something to look forward to. I am not one to shy away from indulging, so it is super important for me to stay motivated. NOT only that, workout gear is so fun and trendy right now, that it makes for a fantastic gift for those workout buddies of yours out there. From a cool water bottle to funky leggings, check off your athleisure gift list here!

Mountain puffer vest

One of my favorite pieces in the winter is a “puffer” jacket or vest. I do not know anyone who doesn’t love these in the colder months, and they look just as fab with jeans and a sweater. J.Crew always has fun colors every season, like the one above. Another great gift is a simple hoodie,  that you can wear to run early in the am or jet around town for errands. Zella, from Nordstrom are the perfect price and come in several colors! This grey has thumb holes, which are my favorite!

Mesh Inset Leggings

I am all about funky leggings for the trendsetter out there. These are just oh so cool, and from Nordstrom. They are my go to store along with Athleta for the coolest pieces. If you head to either of these sites now, you can get a great pair for a friend and yourself. New gear always makes you motivated. I actually wore these with a simple sweater for a casual dinner, that is why I love this athleisure trend so much!

If you are looking for the perfect gift, a S’well water bottle is good for anyone. They are cool looking and I take mine everywhere with me. If you are looking for something small, this will not disappoint workout queen out there. Of course, while treating myself, I had to pick up a pair of icy blue Nike Air Max Thea kicks. The color screams winter fun to me, and the whole look is easy and casual. Not to mention if you are in a bind, a gift card to Nike or adidas makes for a great gift as well!

Everyday, Game Day

How do you Athleisure?

I can’t believe that the MLB baseball playoffs are right around the corner. It is officially fall, and where did the time go? The Los Angeles Dodgers are in first place in the National League, and this city is excited! When I say they are good, guys they are great. I don’t follow baseball as closely as I do the NBA and NFL, but I usually get really excited when playoffs roll around. Being in Cali for as long as I have, I would say that my team on the west coast is obviously the Dodgers, so I will for sure be getting to a playoff game for a hot dog and beer!

Baseball hat and sweats

One of the things I love about a good old baseball hat like this one from 47 Brand is that it looks worn in and has a vintage feel to it. When I am running errands around town after a workout, it is so easy to throw on a cap repping your team. I have become obsessed with anything that is oversized this season, and if you are looking for a trendy piece, make sure to find a cool sweatshirt like this one from Rag and Bone I literally throw it on with my yoga leggings and I am stylish for the day. Not to mention, these days I like to carry a small bag that fits my phone and a credit card. How cute is this one from Nordstrom? It is under $50.00 and totally adds some more style to the look.

Zella leggings for Athleisure look

If you haven’t jumped on the legging bandwagon, then it is time to do so. Zella from Nordstrom fits me really well, and they are not too expensive and are on trend. These are such a great color, and the moto style makes it easy to wear them all day without feeling boring.

Adidas kicks

I did encounter a little bit of a shoe problem when it came to this look. I just picked up these adidas kicks, and they really go the distance when it comes to running on the treadmill and doing errands around town. They look just as great with a pair of simple denim jeans and a t-shirt.

I also kind of want to kick up my leggings in these fun Nike kicks. The Nike logo is the cutest baby pink which makes them also so fun. There is a bit of an added girly touch to them, which obviously makes the high top unique!

Sporty Chic Jackets for Fall

Well summer is quickly coming to an end, and it is that time of year again where I start thinking about some cool light jackets. For me, that means some cool girl vibes with a track jacket. What I love is that you can mix it up with some denim shorts and sneakers, and when the weather is cooler simply throw on a cool maxi skirt to make more edgy. Of course, It is also perfect with any workout leggings to head to a workout. With the Nordstrom Anniversary sale coming to an end, I picked out a few of my favorite ones to still get now.

I love the style of the adidas bomber jacket above! They also have a pretty cool new Neoprene Tubular out that will be perfect for all of fall and winter!
