sweat pants and sneaker fashion

sweatpants and sneakers

Currently 38° in Nashville, TN. Back on the road again shooting a promo real for OTBT shoes and visiting some friends along the way. Filming starts at 9:00am, and the predicted forecast is 22°. Goodbye camera hand, you’re about to get frostbite and die. Crazy makes me seek comfort, so I thought I’d share one of my less stylish vices, sweats and sneakers. (What I wish I was wearing next to my fireplace tomorrow). In my defense, sweats and sneakers are making a comeback on the fashion scene, with nostalgic sportswear brand favorites like Champion, Puma and Adidas thriving in the era of athleisure. But it’s not sportswear that sets this fashion trend apart. Sweats themselves (non-athletic wear) are no longer for lazy days at home, they’re actually in vogue. Don’t believe me? I’ve spent the past 2 weeks collecting hundreds of celeb spottings and outfit ideas in the once frowned upon fashion clichés in chic streetwear galore. Check out my Pinterest board for the deets. In the meantime, here’s the scoop on this hot …

sport luxury fashion blog

making sporty fashion lux

Love luxury fashion but not feeling like trying too hard? Sport luxury is the easiest (and sexiest) solution. Unlike some of today’s quirky fashion blogger trends, sport luxury is effortless and totally understandable no matter what part of the world you may be living in. Here are a few key tips on dressing up your sportswear pieces… or dressing down your luxury fashion… depending on how you choose to look at it. Unlike athleisure, sport luxury doesn’t mean going ultra casual, and you probably won’t look like you just got out of the gym. Athleisure is defined by activewear pieces that you can wear for other occasions in your lifestyle. Leggings to the market, sneakers with dresses and a sport jacket just for the heck of it are all pretty good examples of athleisure style. Sport luxury is a slightly more elevated fashion trend, blending sporty elements into high-fashion style. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | snap knit c/o:DAVID LERNER | leather leggings c/o:DAVID LERNER | gingham print shoes c/o:SENSO | accessories c/o:ABBOTT …

2 ways to wear joggers

2 ways to wear joggers

Athleisure continues it’s dominance in mainstream fashion. And it’s no wonder. With active lifestyles on the go, we had been screaming for this one for years, “please, give us a fashion trend that’s cute and versatile.” Cramming in a full day’s work, errands, a few precious moments at the gym, and let’s not forget happy hour… no one has time to change a dozen times for each activity on the planner. Athliesure is sport activewear that transitions into day wear. So what’s the difference between your gym clothes and something appropriate to wear for a $7 beer and app combo with the girls? Consider your accessories, materials and overall presentation. To pull off the athleisure look flawlessly, opt for swapping your trainers for slides, or do the opposite and keep your trainers on with your suiting. The idea is to mix it up, keep it fresh, and don’t try too hard to follow the rules. One of the most comfortable elements of the trend: joggers. photography: KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | wool joggers …

new years resolutions 101 and how to stick with them

Just kidding, if I had the answer to that I’d have flat 6 pack abs from a rigorous active routine, be juicing every morning, and actually be taking the time to do my hair on weekdays. Let’s face it, we all struggle with meeting the expectations that are put on us by friends, family, coworkers and worse – ourselves. And there’s no other time that’s more apparent than New Years. Somehow inspired by the unmarked calendar, people gaze steadily forward. Sure that this time, they’re going to follow through. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not discouraging you. In fact, New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays as it represents a fresh start, new beginnings and yes – New Years resolutions. I quite savor the time of year to look forward with an untarnished canvas laying before me. But it’s important to remember amidst your ambitions, not to get lost in trying to become someone whom we are not, or becoming discouraged when we fail. Though I can admit to often falling in line with …

versatility at its finest, NAME activewear review

Gym, then coffee date. Office to happy hour. Yoga to the market. With people overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time, it’s unusual for one to be able to step out of the house for just one thing. My list is normally a mile long of a few errands I’ve been putting off, some element of work and probably trying to squeeze in some social time between appointments. In NYC, that means packing a change of shoes, my laptop and sometimes even a change of clothes. Versatility is key for my lifestyle. If the stuff I tote along with me can’t keep up, its going to end up staying in the closet. In the era of wearable technology, robotics and AI – why can’t a girl get a bag that’s just well, smarter? That’s why I’ve partnered with NAME, a luxury fashion brand to introduce their newest activewear bag. Taking a stance on redefining luxury, NAME understands that a women of our generation seek not only beauty and elegance in fashion, but …
