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!
Okay you guys, the holidays are here, and there are some amazing and fun trends that will make every girl on the block feel cool. From futuristic shades, to vinyl pants, and funky boots, it is fun to rock something different. If you are looking for something for the fashionista, then look no further!
I kinda love these fun shades that I picked up at Nordstrom. They are not only super funky and make a great gift, but they are just $12.00. Make sure to check out the Brass Plum section for all kinds of shades that will not bust your budget! Also, what girl does not love a great pair of boots! These white patent pair are super trendy, but any fashion forward girl will love them. They are Steve Madden and are on sale as well!
There is something to be said about a fun fanny pack for a friend as well. If you are on the go, they are so simple and make a look a bit cooler and hip. This one is from Chelsea 28. I was a little scared to wear it at first, and now I want another! Yes these pants are vinyl, and not the easiest to pull off. So if you are feeling something super spicy, I would totally try a pair, or simply a fun faux leather legging. These are from Topshop and again are under $100.00.
One more on trend look that makes a great gift is a fun jacket to layer. I love the lace detail mixed with the sporty edge of this Veronica Beard piece. You can find fun ones at every price point!
Well, this fall has been insanely busy. I feel like I am juggling so many different plates, which is exciting and exhausting at the same time. So many fun projects are in the works, hopefully I can share them with you in the next month or two! One of the things that I love about California weather is that a simple lightweight sweater and cool jeans are usually about all you need this time of year.
For me, staying on time is imperative when you are busy. I was so excited to team up with Daniel Wellington, who make such pretty timepieces. This Classic Petite Ashfield is both dressy and sporty, so I can wear it with everything. If you head to www.danielwellington.com and enter SUZIG at checkout you will get 15% off!
So I am obsessed with all things fun and embellished right now. When I saw these “bee” sneaks from Steve Madden I knew I had to have them, I mean they are just so fun. Nothing reminds me to keep the pep in my step than these shoes, that is for sure.
I am always on the hunt for different types of sweaters that can be dressed up or down for a day on set, or a night out on the town. I love the bell sleeves of this Topshop sweater, because it is super on trend. I’ll wear it with my black leather skirt at night to dress it up.
I am still on a high waisted denim kick for fall, these jeans from Good American are more comfy than any I have worn in awhile. I love the idea of distressed ripped jean mixed with a cool sweater like this. Again, these can easily be rocked at night with a cool pump.
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.
One of my favorite combinations living in Cali was pairing a great sweater with some cool jean shorts. The weather always tends to drop in the evening, and so keeping lightweight sweaters out year round is a must. Here in NYC for the next couple of months I will be traveling to places where temps drop in the evening. So this is a look I will keep here on the East Coast as well. I tend to live in my denim shorts all summer, and so picking up a few new sweaters, like this one from Vince is perfect.
Usually in the summer time, I throw on a cool pair of kicks with my jean shorts. These Nike AirForce 1 tan and black mid tops are awesome. They will go with everything in my wardrobe, and they are super comfortable as well. I paired them with my favorite sporty adidas watch and some simple H&M bangles.
It is all about the belt this summer. Whether you go for a western style, like this fun one from Topshop, or a simple black belt, make sure to add it to your list. Just this small accessory added to jean shorts and a sweater can make all the difference! Step out of your comfort zone, and find one that has a cool pattern.
