It’s been an absolute whirlwind start to the year! This blog post is grossly overdue, and I cannot express how excited I am to get back to my regular routine of doing what I love most: blogging.
This year marked the beginning of a full time teaching schedule at Barry’s Bootcamp, coupled with my current career training and writing. That said, I have been on the move, with little time to fit in all my passions. Over the past few months, I have had the chance to pioneer an athleisure styling column with Barry’s on their blog, The Intel.
I have since styled two outfits, one for each collection released this year. You can find out more here!
My favorite collection and outfit to date is the one I styled this past week: our “Leather & Lace” collection. I am in love with this Split59 tank, and wear it everywhere, including styled into some of my nighttime looks out on the town here in San Francisco. It’s an incredibly transitional piece, especially for being so racy!
I am also currently obsessed with Allbirds! If you haven’t heard of them, you definitely will shortly! They are taking over the world of fitness and lifestyle wear, and I cannot be more excited by it! The model is 100% wool, making them washable and resilient to odor. They are the perfect blend of fitness function and urban chic athleisure, and have survived multiple Barry’s classes and workouts, and still look pristine. If my shoes (and feet!) can survive a week of powering down the Barry’s tread, they can handle anything.
I was first introduced to them by one of my private training clients, who heads up their marketing, and helped them launch. They are a San Francisco based brand, and are some of the coolest people I’ve met in the industry of fashion/fitness/outdoor enthusiasts. Follow them here on Instagram.
