From Day to Night, Outfits for All Occasions

It’s workout time with new gear sponsored by Zappos.

The one thing I love about summer is that it’s warm enough for outdoor workouts! My absolute favorite time for an outdoor workout is right around sunset, because it’s cooling down but still really nice out. I just got some awesome new workout gear from Zappos to keep me looking stylish and cool while I sweat. I’ve found an amazing little spot on the rooftop of a building in Oakland to work out. Luckily I can squeeze in my workout before date night with the husband.

Today was bodyweight exercise day – lunges, burpees, push-ups, and planks were all on the list. And after my workout was done, I got a chance to stretch and take in the view from above!

Date Night #OOTD With the Husband!

It’s funny because I had a whole post on Instagram the other day about high heels are bad for our posture, so I’m always looking for shoes that pair well with a dress but still keep me looking stylish. Luckily I shop at Zappos where they have SO many different types of shoes and you can even sort by the style you are looking for.  I found the perfect outfit for tonight; I know, I know, I always have some sort of sporty flair to my outfits, but I think this one is perfect for a casual night out to dinner and a movie!

The thing I love best about Zappos is that their customer service is top notch, and things arrive so quickly. Shipping is usually free, and I literally got all of my stuff 2 days after I ordered, just in time for Friday’s activities! I would definitely recommend checking out the site if you’re looking for affordable and unique clothes and shoes!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Happy Shopping!

Yoga Pants – Not Just for Yoga Anymore (Part 2)

About a month ago,  I posted about how yoga pants aren’t just for yoga anymore! I’m one of those people who continues to wear my yoga pants on every occasion. People always say that I look pulled together and fashionable, but little do they know that I’m often wearing the same pair of favorite pants – the competitor tight – from Style Firm Los Angeles! I discovered them while shopping in Bloomingdales in Santa Monica, CA and have been hooked ever since. They do a great job of making my booty look nice and toned!

Take a look at how I styled these leggings 4 ways!

This is my usual gym look, featuring the competitor tights. I also styled these with one of my favorite sports bras from Lorna Jane (unfortunately it’s not made anymore) and the Style Firm Modern Long Jacket!

This is my classy party look, and one of my favorite dresses from Anthropologie that is SO versatile that I’ve worn it to company holiday parties, weddings, and even to a nice dinner with my fiancee. I’m wearingthe competitor tights underneath to keep the look pulled together (and because it’s been 30 degrees in California lately)!

This is my casual everyday look for meeting friends and staying warm. If you can believe it, I got this packable down jacket at Costco of all places for $20. These competitor tights continue to keep me warm! This long jean shirt is from Madewell, and my boots are from Forever 21!

This is one of my favorite looks for running errands or going to the movies! I’m still wearing my competitor tights to stay pulled together and looking cute, and my sweatshirt is from Serengetee, an awesome company also from Los Angeles who travels the world to source fabric, using the profit from sales to support local artisans and fabric makers from all over the world.

So there you have it! Which one is your favorite look? Happy 2017 everyone!

Yoga pants – not just for yoga anymore!

I love a nice pair of ripped designer denim or chic pair of slacks, but you can’t match the comfort of a great pair of leggings! People always ask me how I transition my activewear from the gym to the office or even to date night, and the answer is: pair your leggings with some great classic pieces!

Here I take my favorite pair of leggings from Avocado Activewear and pair it with some favorite pieces from my closet to create four completely different looks! The key I’ve found is to choose leggings in neutral colors that can go with anything and are also nice quality and not transparent (no see-through leggings please)! Let me know what you think of these looks in the comments below!
