Sporty Chic

Hi people! 

I have been thinking about doing something different for a while now and so here comes the new category: Sporty Chic! You guys still wanna look chic even whilst working out and breaking a sweat, right? Well, in the next few weeks I am going to try and convince you (and hopefully myself too) that fitness is oh-so-chic!

Released during exercise, endorphins are essential to starting or ending your day right. It gets you in a great mood! And makes you more productive too! Nothing kickstarts your day like a good run, and nothing helps you relax more at the end of the day than a good yoga session. Whatever your workout of choice is, always remember to make it a part of your lifestyle. Exercising should be a priority. Here are some of my personal tips on how to stay healthy, fit and stylish!


There are so many brands out there carrying stylish activewear for fashionistas like you and me. Hey, all the more motivation to get to the gym right? Have fun with colors, prints, and textures when dressing up for your daily workout. Try cute, printed shorts like I did, or wear a bright colored sports bra underneath your workout top. Trust me, a little color and a little fashion will put a spring in your step and make you more motivated to go to the gym. Also, prepare your gym bag the night before. You got no excuse to miss your workout sesh when you’re all packed and ready to go.


Don’t be afraid of the weight room. “Lifting makes you look bulky” is a fitness myth that has been debunked time and time again. If you want that bikini body, cardio won’t be enough. You don’t have to lift ultra heavy kettle bells right away, you can start small and work your way up. Assess your comfort and strength level, or ask assistance from a personal trainer or even from your gym savvy friend. The formula for losing weight is burning fat through cardio combined with building muscle. Muscle doesn’t always mean bulk, you can build lean muscle through exercise and a good diet.


Having an extra busy week? Take 20 minutes out of your day to go for a quick run. It is important to maintain a regular cardio exercise in your routine.

Another great tip is to program an awesome running playlist into your smartphone or iPod. It always helps to have tunes that get you groovin’ and get you in the mood to go that extra mile.

Running isn’t your thing? Experiment with other activities that will get you your required cardio. Try Zumba, swimming, or even tennis!


Invest in a good running/workout shoe. Pick a fun mix of colors or print that you will just love to slip into everyday. Just take a look at my adorable pink and mint sneaks from DKNY!


Lastly, never forget to monitor your diet. That doesn’t mean starving yourself, mind you. Get your daily dose of greens and try to avoid processed foods. If you have a busy schedule, it might be a good idea to prepare salads and healthy snacks ahead of time so you don’t sacrifice your health and good diet during your busy work week.


My final tip to you is to find a friend to keep you on track, in the gym and beyond. It always helps to have someone to keep you in check and to have a buddy on your journey to a better you.


Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle can be challenging, but there are ways stick to it and ways to keep on the right track. I hope this post helped you on your road to fitness! Those are just some of my simple and easy tips on getting fit and staying healthy.

Sporty Looks for Summer

Latest trends

Alexander Wang was definitely one of the pioneers and trailblazers for the resurgence of the athletic trend that is sweeping the fashion industry at the moment. Gray sweats, sneakers, and mesh tops are moving out of the confines of the gym, and are now firmly planted in the style spotlight. Sports luxe have been spotted on the backs of the most stylish set, like Miroslava Duma, Olivia Palermo, and Chiara Ferragni to name a few, this fashion trend show no sign of slowing down.

Sprint-Trend-SportyYou can count on more sportswear detailing and materials propping up even in the most classic of silhouettes. From Gucci to Marni, DKNY to Marc Jacobs, locker room wear is a trend that’s here for the long haul. Incorporate this sought-after look into your wardrobe, and get inspired with my top 10 picks for the best sporty summer looks:


Wearing your sneakers with a relaxed tee and tote in a matching color is an advanced style move that makes your casual attire look a little bit more polished and pulled together.


Trousers with a single vertical white stripe is an understated nod to jogging pants. Take it to another level by using it to diminish the dressiness of the sequin top and studded heels.


Mesh details are hot, hot, hot this season. Turn up the volume on this sporty material when you wear it with distressed jeans and menswear inspired loafers.


The drawstring and pocket detail of these shorts allude to its gym attire origins, but the ankle strap sandal and oversized camel coat make it look updated and super chic.

Change up your crop top, and go for a sports bra instead. Wear with a high-waist pleated skirt, and give a fresh and twist on the athletic trend.

You won’t look a like a dad when you wear sneakers with jeans and a blazer. Just bear in mind that your separates should be tailored and not baggy.

main.original.585x0 (4)A striped sleeved T-shirt gives a subtle nod to sportswear. Topping it off with a crystal statement necklace and lucite heels makes it unique and personal.


Never downplay the value and impact headwear can add to your ensemble. Just by simply wearing a baseball cap, you can dip your toe into the athletic wear trend. Opt for baseball caps done in a more luxe material, like this leather cap, and avoid sports insignia at all costs.

new-york-21-682x1024You need not be limited to blazers and boxy jackets when choosing a piece to complement your favorite graphic print pencil skirt. A varsity jacket is the way to go, when you want to add a bit of sporty glam to your street style.


Gray sweatpants must always be paired with something more formal or a more rigid or tailored shape to it. By using a leather vest to layer the look, you don’t look like you’re lounging at home or sweating it out on the treadmill.

Why not try this trend out for size? You might be surprised at how many chic points you’ll score!
