fashion meets fitness

2015 is now here and moving faster than I can believe! January is a time when gyms are full of people who have made & are sticking with their New Years Resolutions. I just wanted to share a few tips (and outfits!) to help you stay fit in the new year!

  1. Make reasonable goals for yourself. You’re way more likely to continue to work out, stay active, if you have something you’re working towards. But, if you’ve never run more than a mile, maybe don’t make it your goal to run a marathon by march. Try signing up for a 5K or a 10K to keep you motivated and on track!
  2. Get into a routine. Figure out what time of day is best for you to work out and stick with that. I’ve heard it takes 21 days to form a habit. So, set your schedule (ie: every Monday, Wednesday Friday from 6:30-7:30am), and stick with that for 3 weeks straight! After that, it should be as easy as breathing…right?
  3. Make it fun! Working out and being active is way more fun when you can do it with a running buddy, or go to a class that you really enjoy. I also love my fitbit because it helps me stay active even when I’m not “working out”. Working out is also way more fun when you can look cute while doing it…

Which brings me to my next point! Let’s all look our best and feel our best when we work out. Here are some of my favorite work out pieces that are not just great for running or yoga classes, but you can actually wear when running errands or grabbing lunch. I wear my Zella leggings…probably way too much.

First, start with a good pair of tights. All of these are great for running, yoga, or just everyday wear. I love all the bright colors + fun patterns


Next, cold weather gear. It’s so easy to make excuses in these cold months to not go work out. Layer up in some of these great jackets and then you’ll have no excuse, right?


Lastly, you will get nowhere with your work out regime if you don’t have a good pair of shoes! I just started running in these Nikes and have had a great experience so far! I also really like Mizunos. Running shoes aren’t cheap, but they are worth the investment if you want to stay away from injury.

a hint of leopard.

I am such a fan of being comfy, and if I am not in a pair of sweats or my favorite lounge denim, then I love to add a little chic-ness to the leisure look. T I P S: add a statement vest with a rad shirt dress.

I am also in love with this new pullover we got for Michael this weekend. It’s Patagonia – so it’s super sporty and athletic, but the buffalo check makes it so on trend and great for a casual date night too!

casually striped.

This is my go-to running-errands ensemble. Neutrals have started dominating my closet, and I incorporate the outfit pop in textures and prints rather than color (aka stripes, sweatshirt arms, and denim all over).

a sweater + skinnies

there’s something so wonderful about a good sweater that you can throw on with skinnies and have a complete outfit. yes, it’s always fun to dress up and layer and accessorize, but I think there’s so much beauty in simplicity as well.

black and blue.

A lovable black bootie + a soft cozy statement-scarf + my favorite denim = the go-to look for a lunch meeting or a dinner date. Oh, and a warm pop with some faux fur. I don’t know what it is about the navy hue: it has a more casual feel than black and fits the daytime so well.
