Millennial Pink Workout Clothes


Have you heard of Millennial Pink? It's not just one shade of pink, it a range of light pinks from rose quartz, to blush, to rose gold. It's a muted barbie pink so it could be a pink between beige and peach. My favorite summer pink nail polish colors cover this spectrum. It may be the new trending color, but I've been a fan of this shade for years. However it's so hard to find serious running shoes in this color and tank tops. Why is that?

For the summer, I decided I really want to wear pink and white to my fitness classes. I've been wanting to wear white workout pants for years but had been putting it off thinking I have to wait until I'm thin. Well I decided to stop the waiting game and just embrace my size. Earlier this year lululemon released an entire white collection and it got me thinking about it again. Then I read this popsugar article that did a field test of how white workout gear holds up during a sweaty workout. That convinced me to take the plunge and bought the same crop pants the writer is wearing (which is unfortunately sold out now). I also bought the Mind Over Miles Tight. I'm so used to buying my running tights with a draw string to hold them up, but these really stay up without one! Athleta makes a pair of white tights for yoga.

I wanted to share some loose fitting light pink tank tops that I've found to go with these awesome white tights.  Nike's Tomboy tank have been my ultimate favorite tank that I own in several colors. I have been having a heck of a time finding others that aren't semi-sheer so the search continues.

Weekend in Chicago



Chicago's skyscrappers reminded me a lot of NYC where I went to college. The buildings run from 60 floors to 100 floors! This was my second trip to Chicago, the first was a college graduation gift from my mother to see the Taste of Polonia Festival. How do New York and Chicago compare? Well Chicago is smaller than NYC with only 2.7 million people. The bitter winters makes it a city of drivers, unlike (mostly) car-less New Yorkers. However, Chicago has a beach right in the city! Yes you read that right, I was surprised too. They actually have 26 beaches and my favorite was North Avenue Beach. It has an Ocean Liner inspired building which has a bar on top with a dj and a day party going on. The beach has a ton of volleyball nets and is surrounded by the Lakefront Trail. The Lakefront Trail is an 18-mile path where you can bike, run, or walk adjacent to the beach. It's great for people watching while having a gorgeous view of the beach and skyline. Chicago has an awesome bike sharing system called the Divvy which has 300 stations. I saw so many people on the lakefront trail using the Divvy bikes.

Summer Workwear

It finally feels like summer here and the humidity has kicked in early! By now I'm sure you've gone through your closet to see what you can wear this season, what no longer fits, and what you no longer feel like wearing. And if you're like me, that means there's not much left to wear! lol So I put a few things up for sale on Tradesy, it's an online consignment store. I have so many fun weekend clothes, but not much I feel is stylish for work so I went shopping. 

In the top row, the first three dresses are from Kate Spade. I love the "jardin" print! it comes in several dress styles, a romper, several bag styles, a scarf, skirt, blouse, shorts and a phone case. The blue dress and peacock dress are on sale! 

In the summertime I love wearing pastel pink nail polish and mauve pale pink clothing. I've shared a couple pink dresses, blazer, blouse and Kate Spade bag that you can find in a pretty shade of pink. 


I've noticed in stores that stripes are really in trend right now. The great thing about wearing a striped dress or shirt is that in your air-conditioned office you can pair it with a jeweled colored cardigan like emerald or royal purple. Together the colors will pop!

The sleeveless navy ponte sheath dress in the 2nd row is from Lands'End. They make this same dress every year in different colors. I love this dress because it's washable, doesn't need to be ironed and has pockets. It's a perfect work staple! It comes in a range of colors, prints and plus sizes. Chico's makes the pull-on slimming crops pants and the kelly green linen side slit tunic.

You can never go wrong with a pair of espadrilles wedge heels. Click on the images below to go to the item.


48 Hours in Miami Beach


Miami Beach is one of my favorite weekend destinations even though I haven't been in seven years. From the white sandy beaches, palm trees, turquoise warm waters to the overall sexy vibe of the city. Last month I had a 2-day layover there between flights and I was so lucky to get perfect weather – sunny skies, low 80s with no rain. I loved walking around at night with the warm crisp breezes. I divided my time between Wynwood and South Beach.

Wynwood Art Walk




Continuing from my last post on Wynwood Walls, I wanted to share some of my favorite walls. The walls are continuously changing, what you might see someone post on Instagram today won't be there when you go in a few months. I had watched the movie Lion  a few months ago and got the idea to start using google satellite to find walls in Wynwood. I just "drove" up and down the streets on my computer and stumbled up on this unique wall.
