STYLE| ATHLEISURE

September marks the busiest time of my life since…God, I can’t even remember. With teaching my first set of college courses this semester (eeek, professor status), to being back in graduate school (yikes, pupil status), working full-time and blogging, I’m being stretched forty ways to Sunday. So, for-warning, expect to see a lot of casual wear on the blog for the next few weeks. Aside from pulling out my work clothes the night before, dressing has become a total chore. On weekends, I’m busy prepping lesson plans, writing papers, trying to fit in date nights, family time and of course, me time so I have to dress multipurposely–yes, I just made up a word. 

Performance-wear/athletic-wear-whatever you want to call it, has become everyday-wear for me on the weekends.  One Sunday, I went from taking my daughter to soccer practice in the morning, to the weekly stock-up at Trader Joes, to an impromptu movie date. To jazz up my Adidas graphic tee and leggings, I added mules and this statement sequined varsity jacket. Yup, I guess I can say that I got this athleisure thing in the bag.

Old Navy Style- NEW YORK CITY

“The Big Apple”  “Gotham City”  “The City That Never Sleeps” -there are so many names for New York but to me, it’s home. However, it hasn’t always been. I was born in Miami, Florida and lived there during the early years of my life.  Moving to New York not only shaped who I am today but also my style. Let’s face it, NEW YORK IS FASHION!  This summer I’ve been lucky enough to work with Old Navy on a few projects, but this one really hits home. As part of their #50Styles50States I’m sharing how my state(s) influence my style.

Finding the RIGHT fit with DENIZEN® from Levi’s®

This post is sponsored by DENIZEN® from Levi’s®

I hate to break it to you, but Fall is right around the corner. If you’re smart, you will have begun to slowly round up your wardrobe items that can transition with no fuss from summer to fall. In my opinion, the easiest pieces to do that with are jeans. Although I have a fair amount of jeans, I am always on the prowl to find the best-fitting jeans. That’s why I jumped at the chance to test drive DENIZEN® from Levi’s® Women’s Curvy Boot Cut Jeans.

Lifestyle| Healthy Snack Ideas

September marks the beginning of a brutal yet academically satisfying time for me. Not only am I back in grad school as a student this semester, I’m also teaching three liberal arts courses while still maintaining my disciplinarian role at work. For those of you unaware, I work in higher education at a New York University. This past weekend while everyone was soaking up the last bit of beach time and making memories, I was at my home office working on syllabi, writing papers and assignments and prepping my own daughter for her new school year.  As my personal history would have it, this would be the perfect platform for pigging out on snacks.  Knowing that this hectic period was coming my way, I made the conscious effort in deciding to shop for healthy snack foods. While at my local ShopRite supermarket, I reached out for fruits and to satisfy my sweet tooth, I swapped my high caloric go-to’s for Weight Watcher snacks. I couldn’t decide on which flavor to get so I ended up buying the red velvet and lemon creme cakes.

STYLE| BELTED RIBBED JUMPSUIT

Happy Monday ya’ll!!

To think that today is my last day in southern paradise nearly brings tears to my eyes. I’ve had a fabulous time here in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Every time we visit, we discover new activities to partake in  and a plethora of sites to discover. Coming within the next few days, I will run down my top favorite HHI places from boating excursions to restaurants and bars. In the meantime, check out this really cute ode to the 70s jumpsuit I wore few days ago. Leave it to me to wait ’til my 30s to discover the versatility of sneakers! My Adidas Stan Smith kicks have been a go-to during this vacation and they literally go with everything! Goes to show, we never stop evolving.
