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!
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.
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.
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!
Okay okay, you have me here, I did not attend a college with a football team. Can you believe it? Yes, I missed out on tailgates, painting my face, and running wild as a college kid does during games, but I have learned to love college game day just as much as the rest.
When people ask me if I have grown to love a team, I would have to say that I have enjoyed watching how bowl games and now a national championship have shaped college football in the last ten years. Yes, sometimes I yearn to have gone to a school such as Bama, where you can just see people breathing the spirit of it all, but I certainly did get a sense of that growing up with college hoops. And yes people, I know it is very different. So if one may ask, I would have to say I am taking my dad’s alma mater the University of Pittsburgh. I have been lucky to see a few of their games, as well as attend UCLA and USC football games. What I love the best is being in Los Angeles, and seeing the total fandom of both of these teams.
With that being said, my goal this year is to attend a couple more big games, and finally attend a bowl game. I will keep you posted, and until I really decide on a team, I will be the ultimate fan in fun pieces like this Tommy Hilfiger football jersey. I mean I might as well bring some fun fashion into this right? Check out Urban Outfitters for fun gear! Anyhow, whomever your college football team may be, good luck and see you all tailgating across the country!
We all know that summer can be tough when it comes to keeping up with our workouts. I mean lets be real, it is all about the burgers and beers. For me, when I come across a fun workout look, that always motivates me to get it back together again. One of my favorite lines for running and yoga is Onzie. Their pieces are so fun and trend forward that they make me want to get myself in gear again.
What I love about this set is the back is way cool. It makes for a subtle hint of fashion in it, and the trendy leggings are so fun. I will throw on a sweatshirt and cool kicks with them in the fall. I also love that these pants are hight-waisted making them easy for yoga.
Speaking of kicks, these New Balance for J.Crew are making my month. I love the mix of blue and pink. They are so comfy and have the perfect colorful mix that you don’t see that often. I will wear these for working out and for casual days around town.
I picked up the cutest pair of aviators for $12.00 at Nordstrom. I tend to walk a lot outdoors as well, so if I do not have on my hat, then a cute pair of shades works well.
Last but not least, remember to grab the perfect Sneaker Lab products to keep your sneakers clean!
Okay guys, we all know that I am an active athlete and sun worshiper here in Los Angeles. For me, making sure that I have on the proper SPF and coverage is a must. I am literally always outside running, swimming, or just running around town, and so when I came across the coolest line of make-up Sweat Cosmetics I had to try.
My face is really sensitive, but I like to have on some make-up when I am out exercising because it just makes me feel much better about myself. Sweat Cosmetics are high-performance makeup products designed to protect and enhance beauty while being on the go. They were developed and tested by Olympic female athletes in order to empower active women to embrace beauty and find their sweat. From the moment that I put it on, I knew that I was sold, and not only that, it outlasted a major run on the beach, plus a quick dip in the ocean. If you are on the go like me, run don’t walk to pick up their products.
Besides a good new cosmetic for on the go, I also tend to live in baseball hats in the summer when I am trying to beat the heat. This cute California hat from Nordstrom is the perfect pink and is only $15 dollars. I mean talk about a steal.
The weather as we know cools off at night, and so I have been living in this cute adidas sweatshirt in the early am. It will be perfect for the Fall as well with my skinny jeans and sneakers. For now, I am on a white denim jean short kick. How cute are this pair from Topshop? You can wear them in the day, or pair them with a cute bootie and blouse for the night.
Last, of course I have been living in my New Balance kicks that I have had for two years. They are worn in and go with almost everything. I love the simplicity of this color, but if you want a bolder pair they have a ton of fun colors right now.
From old skool kicks to fun new finds, this past month I found myself rocking a little of both. This past year, I partnered up with Happy Socks, and let me tell you they will make your feet dance. They have such a fun assortment of socks and underwear that are not only cozy but make a statement when you wear them. I love the retro polka dot feel of the spring collection below, and so I found it fitting to break out my favorite checkered Vans for summer. This skate shoe has been around forever, and is still one of my favorites.
Speaking of throwing it back, the Vans Sk8 hi-low sneaker in all white is also a favorite of mine. They are affordable, cool, and definitely make my look a little more cool. Adidas has also made such a fun comeback with their “originals” this past year, and I haven’t met a color I didn’t like! This taupe gazelle is off the chart. It is the absolute perfect color to go with everything in my wardrobe.
When it comes to new snekaers that have been dropped, the technology continues to grow for sneaker companies, and they are making it harder and harder to chose a pair! I found this new adidas Tubular in pink. They are blending the past with the future by redefining sportswear for the street, taking inspiration from an iconic 93 runner. The Nike City Knife 3 Flyknit Sneaker, actually is a foldable and packable sneaker, and let me tell you for traveling it speaks to me. The colors are so fly as well, I feel like super girl when I wear these.
A little bit of fun design plus all white sneakers were just another added bonus. These new Nike Air Huarache SE remind me of wearing denim on denim. They are trendy and fun, and litearally are also so comfortable. For me, when it comes to brunching, I love mixing a fun long skirt with a preppy pair of white sneakers. These Tretorn for J.Crew do just that. I also will pair them with all my fun Fourth of July looks coming up.
