I changed the name of this blog a little over a year ago to combine the little things in life that make me really happy: fitness and preppy clothes.Â
I love that the fitness industry is booming right now, and I loveÂ that workout clothes are getting cuter and cuter. But thereâ€™s two collections Iâ€™m REALLY excited about right now.
My New Balance love started a few years ago when they were a client at my old job, but the love continued even after my work for them stopped. I still swear by their 880sÂ and their Windblocker jacket is magic in this cold.
Iâ€™ve also always loved Kate Spadeâ€™s whimsical style, so when I heard the two were collaborating, I died of happiness.
Side note: try explaining a fashion collab to your mother. â€œSo are they Kate Spade or New Balance? Are they on sale on Saturday?â€ Yes, mom something like that. The shoes are New Balanceâ€™s 811, a training shoe, but I see these as the perfect knock-around-the-city in cute jeans and a hoodie or workout clothes kinda shoes.Â
This morning I was catching up on Graceâ€™s blogÂ and she linked to an awesome cover-up DIY project.Â Iâ€™m going to Puerto Rico next week, and was thinking a new coverup would be a nice little gift to myself for my birthday. (Better than the terrible, terrible Loubs I bought myself for 30.) Naturally, the first place I looked was on Lilly…
And saw this! My mom got me a sweatshirt similar to thisÂ for Christmas, but Iâ€™m excited for this really cute activewear.
I interviewed for a job a few years ago doing social for Lilly, and one of the things I proposed was that the brand get into fitness clothes. Iâ€™ll take my check now, thank you. (I also think a Lilly/Lulu collaboration would be AMAZING.) As for the coverup, I think Iâ€™m ordering this one.
What are your favorite workout clothing lines? What regular-clothing brand would you love to see get into fitness?
