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!

Everyday, Game Day

Welcome to the Association!

On September 15th, Nike put on what I can only describe as an amazing presentation to unveil their new Nike X NBA uniforms at Sony Studios. Being invited was not only an honor, but when actually arriving at the event I had the chills. The media vibe was like nothing I have seen in a long time, and the lead up to the show was well put together.

Before the start of the show, we got to walk through a really cool room of mirrors that led into a great warehouse. From there, the show began with three huge moving video vignettes before they began to unveil the new jerseys.

Nike’s new NBA partnership will begin with the 2017-18 season, but last night the Swoosh gave us a glimpse of what to expect as we got an exclusive look at the brand new NBA Statement Edition uniforms.

Every team had a player representing, and they walked on the stage with the new zip up hoodie before all at once taking it off to show their own new jerseys.

The new Statement uniforms will be the threads teams will be wearing for big time games or rivalries. The design of each uniform is inspired by the team’s desire to make a bold statement every time they step on the court. The aesthetic expresses the specific spirit of the current roster. Take the Boston, Chicago and Cleveland uniforms for example, the chose black bases to represent a sense of strength and power. Each has team-specific detailing; Chicago’s pays homage to its historic use of pinstripes, while Cleveland’s displays the franchise’s secondary logo. Other teams such as the Denver Nuggets use their heritage as inspiration (mile-high altitude), and the list goes on.

Lakers uniforms

Oklahoma City uniforms

The defending Champions Golden State Warriors pay respect to the culture and legacy of its hometown: Oakland. Their uniforms read “The Town” above a new team crest, which employs Oakland’s family Oaktree (a design found on street signs and sourced by the team through Oakland’s city government).

Not only that, Nike just announced the “Nike NBA Jersey with NikeConnect”, a connected jersey that allows wearers to get highlight reels, scores, stats and exclusive content from and about their favorite players and teams with a tap of their phones on the jersey’s tag. Check out the video below!

Sneakers, Trends

Fall Sneaker Lust!

Well it wouldn’t be fall if I didn’t already want every pair of sneakers that are being dropped right now. We all know that I love me some Jordan’s anytime of the year, and I just decided to grab these classic Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG. The other Jordan that I want to add asap to my collection is the new Jordan Westbrook 0.2 sneaker. I love the navy blue suede color, and just like his logo “why not”!

If you want something fun and girly, the new Nike Air Max 1, just released, is pretty in pink. I love the mix of tan with the white sole and pink glaze. It is perfect for a fun twist on this classic shoe.

If you are a fan of the Rihanna line for Puma, her new cleated creeper is coming soon. Derived from her original model this cleated creeper has a double cleat style sole. It will be available in both brown and black.

Another fun collaboration is with Adidas and Hender Scheme for a luxury pair of Originals. The two have teamed up to reimagine three silhouettes with a more luxurious feel. The whole collection is hand crafted in Tokoyo.

The other Adidas collaboration that I need to get my hands on is the Stan Smith and Pharrell sneaker. This musician and designer is remixing aesthetic elements of the Stan Smith with his bold classic the Tennis Hu. It combines a court shoe with a runner in a sock-like construction.

Blondie!

I just came across the cutest new designer at Nordstrom by the name of Brunette the Label. They have the cutest tees and sweats that will make any girl skip around town. I found this Blonde sweatshirt that is perfect for the weather as it begins to change here in California. The mornings and evenings tend to drop and for the beach this is the perfect piece.

Not only that, but these cute Nike leggings are fun and totally on trend. I love a fun design on my running tights, and these have a great waistband that stays up during any activity. I also just got this cool Baby G watch for the fall. It is a cool shade of black, and will go with so many different looks. I like to wear it out at night too for a sporty edge.

Quay Australia shade

I am a little obsessed with Quay Australia shades right now. They can be purchased at Nordstrom as well, and they are all around $60 dollars. I mean what a steal for such a cool pair! I love that these are a bit oversized, and they fit perfectly with this whole look.

Nike sneakers

Say hello to my new favorite kicks from Nike. How cool are these Cortez vibes? Irridescent sneakers are a huge trend for fall, so don’t be scared to try them out, and of course mix and match them with all of your looks.

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.
