Anyone else as excited as me, that the NBA playoffs are here? One of the things that I love about this time of year, is that there is so much fun fan gear, and it can be worn in so many different ways. I came across this Golden State Warriors Jacket available at Fanatics and was instantly in love! They have several teams in this cool snap front vintage style from Starter.
The back of this jacket is just as cool as the front, and to be honest, if I were going to any music festival I would go sporty and wear this. There is something about a simple denim short and tee to make it more stylish and fun.
Not to mention braids are so back in style, and if you want to be super on point, throw some in and take this look up a notch.
We all know that I am going to pair my looks with some cool kicks, and these Jordan’s are my favorite right now. The cool zip makes them even cooler, and they also come in black!
Spring is here, and it is all about the track trouser pant for me. I am all about mixing athleisure trends with unexpected pieces, and this season the track pant has become even more elevated. You are seeing this trend for nights out, and to make it even cooler, pairing it with a crop top and a denim jacket makes it funky and unique. I received this Wrangler jacket this past fall, and I love that it is two tone and cropped. It is the perfect length to go with these high-waisted trousers.
Whether you leave it open or closed, you can pair this piece with a pretty skirt, dress, or even make into a cool denim on denim look. I picked up this bandeau top at a flee market a few years back, but any fun crop that you can find from Topshop to Nordstrom will work!
Not only are these pants dressy, they are fun and loud. They can go with a blouse as well, and definitely a killer heel will make them great for a stand out date night. I wore them with my favorite CK slides from DSW, another big trend. These slides are perfect for after yoga or for a day out.
Some of my other favorite athleisure trends are below, and remember play them up for a night out, and keep them simple for the day!
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!
I had the pleasure of speaking to Jordan Bell and Patrick Mccaw of the Golden State Warriors about their fashion. The environment was casual after a practice, and chatting with both of these athletes about their personal style was so much fun. As the year progresses, we are seeing more veteran athletes really step up their game in the fashion world, and these young players are not far behind. I watched Jordan Bell as force with the Oregon Ducks, and this is his Rookie year in the NBA.
We started off talking about this incredible suit from The Good Counsel, which is a men’s luxury, Big and Tall e-commerce destination. This company has suited up many athletes, and is perfect for a game when you need to be dressy. That being said, casual vibes are being seen just as much from these players, and Jordan has been seen in some really cool pieces from the clothing brand Regi Phenom.
This line based in Los Angeles, was created for tall and athletic body types, I love the cool structure and lines of this sweater that Jordan wore. When we talked about NBA All-Star in Los Angeles, he said we may see something new and custom made from this line. Which, of course I cannot wait for. Off the court, when it comes to casual, we have to talk about the sneakers. Jordan is a Nike athlete, and his FAVORITES are the Nike Air Foamposites.
When It comes to his on court shoe, Jordan usually wears the Kevin Durant’s to play in. This leads to the question of traveling and being a Rookie. The schedule is crazy, and packing is not easy. Jordan told me he is not great at packing, but is getting better as the year goes on. What does he have to have when he travels? His stereo system that he can listen too while he is getting ready at the hotel. Make sure to follow him @1jordanbell to see his “fit” at NBA All-Star!
I first met Patrick Mccaw at NBA Summer League while playing TopGolf and talking kicks. He went to UNLV and was a Running Rebel, so the two of us have a lot in common. Not only is he fun and casual in his fashion, he may be one of the nicest guys in the league! Pat is only in his second year here in the league, and he already has a championship ring with the Golden State Warriors team.
He says, that as a young player in the league he would rather be more casual then dressy. His travel routine is on the fly, as he usually packs the day of to hit the road. A GSW warm-up and some cool kicks are easy, but his favorite line that you will see him in often is Thrasher. When it comes to the kicks, Pat wears a ton of Jordan’s. I love the casual photo above with his Penny Hardaway throwback tee and jeans. Growing up, this was his favorite player, and he continues to aspire to his game style. What does Pat have to take with him on the road? His video games. Right now he is playing a lot of Call of Duty, which I challenged him on with my next trip to San Francisco!
On the court Pat likes to mix up his shoes. He wears a mix from the Kobe’s, to Paul George, and Kyrie’s. Most of them are inspired by the Golden State Warriors colors like these Nike Kobe AD Mid shoes against the Toronto Raptors in January. Make sure you follow @pmccaw0 to keep up with his cool kicks collection!
Yes it is the winter, and yes I am on a pastel sneaker kick right now! This time last year, I was buried under the snow in NYC wearing my snow boots and rain boots all over the city. I do admit, we have had our fair share of winter days in Cali, but really, we can usually wear sneakers year around. To switch it up, I love to find fun and girly athleisure pieces, and right now we are seeing a big trend of pastel sneakers. This I am totally okay with, that small pop of mint or pink makes me smile, and pulling a whole look together just feels happy at this time of the year.
First things first, these Nike Air Max 95 LX kicks are just really dope. I found them at the NIKE X Nordstrom pop up, and they are quickly becoming one of my new favorite sneakers yet. You know that you have found a gem when you get stopped on the street frequently with these on. My birthday is coming up, and I am contemplating wearing them out dancing! Thoughts? As we all know, throwing on a baseball hat is easy for me, and this two tone denim number from Nordstrom feels so 90’s to me.
I have kind of been living in sweatshirts because this cool girl trend makes me feel like it is totally okay. Whether it be from adidas or Nike with a logo, or just easy and plain like this piece from Topshop they are fully on trend. Again, in the spring it will be perfect with my denim shorts and these same kicks.
I am quickly becoming a big fan of changing my leggings from plain jane to having logos or a fun print all over them. These Nike joggers from Macy’s are not only super comfortable, but are kinda just perfect for lounging around the house at night as well. For errands, we know I cannot deal with a big bag half of the time, and this cute and simple gold purse from Nordstrom is under $30 and looks just as great with a little black dress.
Now go out and find a pair of pastel kicks that you love, my recommendations are below!
