Work it Out

A new year means new resolutions for yourself and body for many people. Although a fresh start is never a bad idea, I always try to make it a point to better myself through out the entire year, rather than for just a month exactly after midnight on NYE. In doing so, have found a love for all athletic gear - and gym shoes! I find myself going for these clothes in my closet sans work out and couldn't believe how many chic choice there are now a days! I usually opt for white, black or gray color combos, but patterns and pops of color are always a fresh look! Below are some of my favorite items that may look familiar from appearances on my Instagram.



I finally caved and bought my first pair of Lulu's (yay!) I actually found them at their outlet store in Rosemont - who knew that existed!? Safe to say I'm extremely glad I took the plunge with the fun pattern.



I've recently blogged about this scarf (see here) - however I can't get enough of it. I recently went for a run outside (crazy, I know) and it kept my entire neck and lower face warm the entire time. In Chicago, that's a feat in itself!

My boyfriend and I are huge sneaker heads - he bought me these limited edition Nike sneakers a year ago for my birthday, so unfortunately they're not available anymore - however these 'Blazer' Vintage Basketball sneakers and these are so similar and the style is great for walking around or running errands all day!

I wore the soles of my last pair of Nike's and came across these in the store. Once I tried them on, it was like walking on clouds. I never turned back! I love the white and black contrast with the light reflecting elements - its chic without being too flashy. Similar styles are here and here
And, of course, these are all on my current wish list for all things athletic. If you're like me, you'll be adding them to your wardrobe quickly!
