 After a the past few weeks of travel I had the opportunity to kick my fitness clothes to the curb for days spent exploring new cities and cultures. Honestly, it felt good to dress up and feel like an actual 33 year old woman! I wore blazers and booties and chic sweaters. I also dove into the midi skirt trend in a big way. I felt so ladylike and proper and sexy without revealing much more than my calves. I love a midi skirts because they can easily be dressed up or down and paired with everything from a chunky knit sweater to a bodysuit, t-shirt or classic white button down.

For a while midi skirts were considered unflattering and for a different generation. Today, the midi skirt is something that a woman of any age can wear. They come in so many cuts, colors and fabrics and I am so happy that I did not shy away from the trend like I have from so many others before. This green skirt is very fun and eccentric, but I absolutely love this one from H and M for everyday wear.

I have been pairing mine with sneakers for day to give them an athleisure vibe, but you can easily pair a midi skirt with booties or a sassy heel to transition seamlessly from day to night. If you are going to wear sneakers with a midi skirt make sure to keep the design sleek and not too fitness forward. I believe this trend will be with us for years to come. So if you have been thinking about purchasing one, but have not whipped out your credit card yet then I suggest you ordering one right now. The holidays would be the perfect time to rock this trend!

Can you believe it is still 80 degrees here in sunny Florida? If you are looking for more winter vibes make sure to check out how my girl and athleisure goddess NYC Pretty styles the same green skirt! She is totally amaze and makes me want to take on the cold streets of NYC ASAP!

Tuesday Shoesday: My Favorite Kicks for Fall


Happy Tuesday Shoesday! I have been gearing up for some overseas travel and that means I can finally wear some fall clothes. For me, September is the time to get reorganized and the “out with the old, in with the new” mentality takes hold. I absolutely love shoes and accessories; however, Cory will literally kill me if I bring home one more pair. Thankfully enough I get gifted quite a bit for this blog so I can save some money here and there. I get my shoe fix and my husband adds up the savings.


Last spring I was gifted my first pair of Adidas Ultra Boost and fell in L-O-V-E. I am not an avid runner; however, I can run longer and more comfortably in most Adidas shoes. I love the fit and comfort level and they feel awesome on my flat-wide feet thank to 20+ years on the dance floor.

Yes! I love sneakers, but so also love pumps, booties, over the knee boots and slides. I have created my list of go-to shoes for the season.


Athletic: Athletic sneakers are kicks that may have some athleisure cross-over, but for the most part they are made to run, jump, kick and play! I pair them with athletic looks and they are made for group fitness classes!


Athleisure: Athleisure sneakers are kicks that I think can be paired with everything from your favorite dresses and skirts to leggings and denim. My top choices shown here are ones I love, lust or have in my closet.

Girls Just Want to Have Fun: These are shoes that have no athleisure vibes, but are shoes I just love for fall and will definitely be strutting around in during my travels.

ThirdLove Review-The Quest for the Perfect Bra is Over

This is an important bra conversation brought to you by ThirdLove. As always all opinions are my own.

ThirdLove Loungewear

Bra // Underwear // Top // Leggings


It seems like these days I live my life in sports bras or pretty lace bralettes because my athletic body does not require much more; however, that was not always the case. In college I rocked an almost C hormone induced chest, but after overhauling my diet, increasing the amount of group exercise classes I take every week and going off birth control I found myself struggling to fill out a B. Often times have to wear a nude bra for modeling jobs or when I need to act like an adult on the weekends, but whenever I do wear a regular bra I have to tighten my straps to an uncomfortable level or I am left pouring out of the side or with a gap in the front with the seams popping through every shirt.

ThirdLove Bra Review

ThirdLove Bra

Finding the proper bra is a very serious mission, similar to finding the perfect pair of jeans. Once you find the right style, fit and comfort, you stay true to that brand until the end. Without sounding too excited, “salesy” or overexcited, I want to share a little bit more about my new favorite bra from ThirdLove.

ThirdLove Bra Fit Finder

The “Fit Finder” is a questionnaire used to help you find the perfect fit of your next bra. It is a few simple questions that will open a whole new world for you. All this time I thought I was a 34 B, but in actuality I am an athletic 32B and a HALF…yes HALF. The every day bra for me is the 24/7™ Classic T-Shirt Bra. It is seamless, comfortable and fits perfectly with no gaps! The accordion strap gives a woman extra support without digging into the shoulder. ThirdLove offers 30 percent more cup size options than most bra makers, and they have developed a proprietary blend of lightweight memory foam to give the bra a feeling of “a second skin”. The flat tubing is sewn into the bra’s frame and although it costs twice as much as traditional wire channel, it keeps the bras underwire from ever poking out and scraping a woman’s skin.

ThirdLove Seamless Loungewear

ThirdLove Bra Review

I have tried on my new ThirdLove bra with everything from this Seamless ¾ sleeve Tee in Zinfandel shown here to my favorite little black dress and I have to tell you…I am ready to order more. The color I chose is called naked -2, but if nude is not your thing I love the potent plum and the seafoam. There is also a 3 for $27 package on seamless underwear that is worth every penny. They pair perfectly with the Seamless Leggings or with active wear of any kind. I have tested them and they are very comfortable during yoga or boot camp!    I plan on wearing this entire outfit on my travels to Italy and China in a few weeks and give ThirdLove an A+ in comfort, fit and fabric.

Make sure you hop on over to ThirdLove to use the Fit Finder and get sized for your perfect bra today! ThirdLove believes in their product so much that you can even try before you buy! Order any bra style, wear it, wash it and try it for 30-days and decide whether or not you want to keep it. All you pay for is $2.99 for shipping. After the 30 days are up you will be charged in full for your new ThirdLove beauty…which I truly believe you will.

If you are already a ThirdLove worshiper then I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

Get the Most Out of Your Workout With Athleta and Powervita

This  conversation has been sponsored by AthletaAs always, all opinions are my own.

Pants //White Bra // Flowered Bra // Sweater

No matter where you are in your fitness journey, finding the way you, your body and your soul likes to move will be the game changer in sticking with any fitness regimen! Movement comes in many forms and is not a one stop shop for all. With all of the personalities I and every other woman has swirling around their pretty little heads, finding a movement style that resonates with every personality is 100% possible; however,  it takes time, patience and more often than not it means laughing at yourself when it all goes terribly wrong.  One day you may be feeling anger and a boxing or a HIIT session may be your calling your name. Other days you may be bursting with energy and a dance or cycling class may be the key in releasing the hounds on the endorphins train. The most important takeaway here is that you move your body on a regular basis. Movement simply put helps you feel better mind, body and soul.

In order to find a movement and/or class that works for you my biggest suggestion would be to join a health club or app service that offers a variety of instructors and styles. This way you can ease your way in, move with a purpose and not spend an arm and a leg on joining multiple studios. Lastly, get some cute workout clothes! Have you ever noticed how an outfit can change your entire demeanor? When I get new workout gear or new kicks I often find an increased pep in my step,  a little more swagger and increased power in my workouts.

Speaking of power, The new POWERVITA collection from Athleta offers innovative, interlocking construction that gives a lighter than light, hugged-in feel. The wicking fabric pulls sweat away from the body so it can evaporate faster yet it is breathable enough that sweat can travel to the surface and evaporate faster. It honestly feels like my body is being hugged in all the right places yet I do not feel suffocated in any way. I love that the white bra is great for HIIT sessions and the adjustable braletts are perfect for Yoga and Barre. They offer more than enough support, but feel like they are barely there. As far as sizing goes I size down to an XS in both tops and bottoms.

This fall, let Athleta and the POWERVITA collection help propel you forward and give you the confidence to try something new! Add layers for a cute athleisure style that can easily transition from the studio to the streets and embrace the #PowerofShe.

When I was little it felt like it would take centuries for the holidays, my birthday or summer to come around. Nowadays, I blink and another year passes. Truly, I cannot believe we are only weeks away from closing out the summer and breaking out all things pumpkin spice and cozy layers. Even though I live in Florida, the temps in the fall still dip in the evenings and we take respite from the 90 plus summer temperatures. This also means layers are key to remaining comfortable throughout the day! Cue: a little help from Old Navy style!

I have a secret to tell you. The only sports bra I wore last week was the Enlite bra. I did barre one day, went for a run another day, taught a “lower half” class  and rounded out the week with a BBG session that left me weak in the knees. I have to say, the Enlite bra kept me supported and comfortable the entire time! Have you ever gone to a class and had your natural boobs look like they are frowning at you in the mirror while you are trying to squat, tuck or burpee? Well, I have and honestly, it is one of my biggest fit-fashion pet peeves. I am a 32 year old woman, who lives on a planet with gravity, do I really have to be reminded about this fact during every single workout? I. THINK. NOT.

Free to Move: lululemon Enlite Bra

This post is sponsored by lululemon. As always, all opinions are my own! All photos by Judy Walker Photography.

Last week I had the opportunity to walk into lululemon and get fit for the new Enlite high-impact bra. As stated in my last lululemon post, the quality and comfort of lululemon products are and will remain at the top of my fit-fashion list. Before heading to the mall, I made an in-store appointment to be fitted for the new Enlite bra, and my experience was honestly fantastic!

As a proud member of the itty, bitty, ti**y committee I never really gave getting my bust measured much thought. Maybe that is because I wear bralettes and sports bras 90 % of the time, and sizes only come in small, medium and large.

Upon entering lululemon, I was greeted and promptly brought to the fitting area where sales associate Maria was waiting with a smile on her face. She prompted me to breathe in and out, while taking measurements like a ninja. Of course, it can be a bit awkward standing in the middle of a store in your undergarments, but there was ample dressing room space for privacy if needed. Getting measured took all of five minutes and it was determined that I was a 34C in the Enlite bra.

I am traditionally a 34B in a regular bra, but felt the fit of the 34C was nearly perfect.  The support comes from underneath your lady bits, and I love it because it felt comfortable, supportive, soft and did not dig in! I know I do not have a very large chest, but most “high support” sports bras leave me with a less than attractive “uniboob” and are painstakingly tight; however, the Elite bra does the opposite. It offers a separate home for each breast and is perfect to wear under your favorite top or by itself.

The Enlite Bra has redefined what high performance support and comfort feel like and I cannot wait to put it to the test! Stay tuned for more from Lululemon and the Enlite bra and have a fabulous week!

 

TWF Product Test: Adidas Ultra Boost X

Adidas Ultra Boost X

Last week was a serious marathon of sweat, unity and fit-fashion excellence! I had opportunity to connect with fit-friends and bloggers across the country, attend a workout fundraiser at The Fit Shop in North Miami Beach and experience the best in fitness from NYC to MIA and beyond. The sweat life has given me a serious boost of inspiration to create, complete certifications and connect with other strong like-minded women.

When I think of household fitness brands, adidas is definitely on the top of my list!

Every woman has her go-to brands to make her feel fabulous, and adidas has been a mainstay in my wardrobe since I was a little bit of a thing. Remember the massaging sandals that took a week to get used to? Well, they are back, and honestly, I think the adidas tracksuit has been on rotation since my mom was shopping for clothes in terms of months.

Find Your ZOKU With Reebok

ZOKU Runner by Reebok

ZOKU’s Japanese translation means to be continued or to be part of a tribe. As a strong millennial woman, I consider my gang of fearless females my ZOKU! They inspire me to be the best version of myself, and honestly, are the reason I continue to share my stories with all of you on my little part of the Internet. The whole ‘mean girls’ trend is like so 2004, and we should work hard as women to leave that shtick in the past and take time to lift our girl gangs up. Support and inspiration of one another should be the wave of the here and now!

ZOKU Runner by Reebok

Like the ZOKU RUNNER, women are incredibly versatile! No offense to my husband, brothers or father, but my rock star gals who are full-time working stay at home mom’s; I bow down to you! You are the real heroes of the household, and no doubt “wear the pants”. Better yet…you wear the “ZOKU RUNNERS”. Women have to be a variety of different people on any given day. They are the cooks, the cheerleaders, the organizers, the boss babes, the goal diggers, the wives, the girlfriends, the coaches and often times the fathers. Women are truly what make the world go round. So thank you mom for all of the sleepless nights and sacrifices you made for us!

lululemon has been a mainstay in this health and fitness junkies life for some time now. They are brand I stay loyal to for many reasons; three being: comfort, style and timelessness of their pieces. To me, diving into the NULUX collection is like stepping out your front door and into a cool-crisp spring morning. You know the type I am talking about. The mornings where you walk out the front door when the sun is just beginning to shine, the birds are chirping, there is dew on the grass and a slight lingering chill is holding on for dear life as the first sign of daffodils pop up to say “hello”-just in time for your morning walk or run.

Nulux…It feels like running naked on a perfect spring morning.

Nulux...it feels like... Nulux...it feels like...

122A0675Nulux fabric is quick-drying, sweat wicking and offers lightweight coverage for all of your fitness needs. In other words, Nulux bra’s and tights fit exactly how I like them to, whether I am going out for brunch or am in the “pursuit of sweat” from my weekly barre classes to outdoor run or HIIT training session.

Living in Miami means you can take your workout outside 365 days a year; however, the extreme summer heat can also leave you feeling breathless in a short period of time. Investing in gear that lets your body breathe and leaves you comfortable is the key to success!

Null...it feels like

The Nulux Fast and Free Crop and Bra come in a variety of bright spring prints and colors! I love how the bra cuts in at the clavicle and adds ample coverage and boost without feeling suffocated or restricted. The Nulux fabric offers barely-there sensation, quick drying, lightweight coverage that is perfect for a training session at the park on the beach or wherever life takes you!

Nulux by lululemon

The crazy smooth fabric is also great for layering! I plan on wearing mine well in summer and I hope you do too! As the temps begin to rise and the last of the snow melts away I encourage you to start aNU in Nulux!

Don’t let your workout clothes get the best of you. Head over to  lululemon.com or show up in store, pick out your favorite look, grab your equipment, get outside and live #TheSweatLife this spring.

Get “naked” with Nulux! Designed with you in mind.
