sometimes i compromise my workout attire for the sake of more day and evening wear.  i’m finally ready to invest in activewear.  these cute workout clothes (mostly stella mccartney for adidas) are on my radar.  and, click here to see yet another pair of beautiful leggings.  if cold weather and dark winter evenings hinder your workouts (as they unfortunately do mine), new attire can be a huge workout motivator.  at least, i’m hoping.  happy workout!

nautical escape

wearing this look i’d like to find myself at a beautiful resort in the hamptons or palm beach.  this look is lightweight, surprisingly comfortable and perfectly nautical for a seaside venture.  it also creates the perfect silhouette.  peplum tops are the ultimate waist defining top.  i love its simplicity. with its barely-there abstract floral design, it contrasts these leg lengthening, bright pants nicely.  with a wide brimmed hat, having a similar nautical feel, a cocktail by the sea would be quite fitting!

the Panama hat has quite a history.  it’s practicality and style have served it well over the centuries.  From its beginnings in the 17th century, to Theodore Roosevelt and its rise to icon status, it’s fame was further established in acclaimed hollywood movies like “to kill a mockingbird” and “gone with the wind.” today, its classic, contemporary, and practical elements are gracing the heads of thousands of spectators at one the world’s most celebrated sporting events Rolland Garros. this is a hat transcending time, bringing history to present day and it’s track record proves it can be worn with almost anything from a silk suit to current street styles.  with white denim jeans, a kimono-style top, bright belt and wrap bracelets, this hat certainly “tops off” my look.  with the perfect wide brimmed hat to shelter me from the sun, i’m ready to take the oklahoma fields by storm.
