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!
Well it is official, I have made the move into Tribeca, and I couldn’t be more excited about the neighborhood. One thing that has been hard for me, is missing my long beach runs. Being down in this part of the city, not only do I have Chelsea Piers to hit, but the West Side Highway runs along the Hudson, and the view is gorgeous! You can run all the way to Central Park if you should choose (too bad I am not that in shape).
The weather was mild last week, so I chose to ditch the gym and get moving outside instead. I just ordered these Adidas Tubular Viral Knit Sneakers for cross training, and they couldn’t be more comfortable. I love that they almost look lavender in the light, the perfect color for Spring. I’ll also be wearing them with jeans and a white tee as I stroll the city.
I have been obsessed with green lately, in all shades, and these Nike work-out pants are a great shade. I like the logo on the side of the leg, and you will be seeing lots of athletic tights with fun sayings this season. There are a range of fun colors and patterns from all the major athletic companies, and as we all know, I usually keep my workout clothes on to run errands, so I have a feeling my collection is going to grow.
I love mixing up shades of green with pink, so I simply added my favorite Herschel backpack from Nordstrom. It is the perfect size to carry to the gym with me, and I love the baby pink color. Also, when biking around the city, it is not too big that I will feel weighed down. In Cali, carrying a large tote was much easier, but I like having the option of a backpack so I don’t feel lopsided when I will be walking for longer periods.
Now can we talk about Ivy Park? This fun athletic line from Beyonce is killing it for me! Her designs are not only super cool, but the quality is perfect. This jacket is just light enough that I can wear it on my run, and lets be real it is super hip. Her line merges fashion forward design with technical innovation to create a new type of performance wear. I can’t wait to see what she has in store next season!
