one: Old Navy mini messenger bag
two: Topshop lemon oversized sunglasses
three: La Mer neon wrap watch
four: Forever 21 scalloped bib necklace

There is nothing like an extra pop of neon to immediately enhance any outfit. I am loving neon yellow at the moment and these are pieces that I have in my shopping charts via the interwebs.

Pops of Color

{Outfit Details} J. Crew Coat, Old Navy Cardigan, Old Navy Blouse, J. Crew Pants, Forever 21 Socks, H&M Brogues, Forever 21 Scarf, Quilted Marc Jacobs Stam Bag

My fingers are crossed for some snow soon. Crazy how we are so used to snow around this time of year and we still have yet to get some flurries (except for our huge October storm). For now, I am just adding pops of color to my outfits here and there to brighten up the long, cold days! :)

One: Puma Fitness Lux Workout Bag- a bag to throw a change of clothes in!
Two: Valeo Women's Lifting Gloves - I always wear these, they keep my hands from forming calluses!

Four: Nike Pro Core Women's Capris - the perfect fit capri, great for running
Five: Nike Luxe Layer Tank Top - I love tank tops in this style. It gives me air to breathe in and I love the looseness of it!
Six: Nike Element Women's Thermal Hoodie - For before and after your workout
Seven: Nike Air max Tailwind Sneakers - to pound the pavement with....
Eight: Puma Sportbands - pull back those flyaway's!

Stay tuned for an upcoming post on some of my favorite workouts and tips!

An Outfit for an Overcast Day

{Outfit Details} ApartStyle Matte City Anorak Jacket (c/o), Old Navy Sweater, H&M Blouse, DL1961 Denim in Kate cropped (c/o), BCBG Heels, Eloquii Colorblock Envelope Clutch (c/o), Forever 21 Necklace
These jeans could  be the most comfortable denim I own. They are made with Invista's Lycra fabric, which makes them, OH so soft! I could probably run a few miles in them, although I would rather not :)
There is something about snapping photos on a dreary/rainy day that makes me love the photograph more then when it's sunny out. I don't know exactly what it is, but it's amazing not to have the sun gleaming in your eyes! Overcast is definitely my favorite weather to snap outfit photos in. What is yours?
