There is a growing trend in America to become more physically fit and active. I’m sure you’ve seen a rise of spin, yoga and kickboxing studios in your area over the last 3-5 years. Capitalizing on this growth, retailers such as Lululemon, Sweaty Betty and Athleta have offered not only fitness apparel, but stylish athletic wear that can be worn from the gym to the yoga mat and even out to lunch with friends.
If you’re looking to revamp your workout wardrobe, below are a few trendy options:
Burnout Stripe Athletic Tee (Forever 21, $12.80)
Stage Door 3/4 Slv Tee (Sweaty Betty, $65)
Rocket Tight (Lululemon, $92)
Here to There Pant (Lululemon, $118)
Radical Stride Capri (Athleta, $84)
Crush Connect Capri (Athleta, on sale $59.99)
The sun is finally starting to shine here on the East Coast and it’s putting me in “shopping mode.” Since I already have a ton of clothing in my closet from last spring, I’m planning to add only a few small accessories and dresses to my spring/summer wardrobe. I believe that small accessories can be mix and matched with the same outfit to create a totally different look (FYI: It’s also more economical than purchasing more clothes).
Below are three of my top picks to add to a spring wardrobe:
Kealla Wedge Sandal (ALDO, $65)
Navy Enamel Bezel Silicone Metro Watch (Kate Spade, $175)
Botanical Woven Dress (Forever 21, $19.90)
On Sunday, I attended the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island in New York. Party-goers from all over the city came the small island dressed in 1920’s vintage clothing, danced to the sounds of Michael Arenella’s Dreamland Orchestra and enjoyed a variety of food, drinks and activities. This year, I opted for a simple cream lace dress and vintage-inspired jewelry.
Below is my Style File:
Lace Shift Dress (Forever 21, $27.80)
Of course, I had to throw on a quirky mustache to layer with my mother’s pearls.
Mustache Charm Necklace (Forever 21, $5.80)
The Victorian Woman ring is the most “vintage looking” accessory that I wore. Unfortunately, I don’t remember where it was purchased. However, Amazon.com and Victoria’s Jewelry Box might be a good place to start if you’re looking for more authentic-looking pieces.

As Mother’s Day approaches, many are booking spa appointments, sending flowers or planning a brunch to show their mothers how much they appreciate everything that she’s done for them throughout the years. If you are having a hard time figuring out what to wear to any of the activities you have planned, then I suggest taking a dive into your closet now to figure it out before Sunday.
A silk shirt and a pair of brightly colored jeans or patterned pants is my top pick for this weekend. Whereas floral patterns were once an obvious choice for dresses and skirts, they are now being used for bottoms. I noticed the trend when celebrities such as Beyonce, Solange, and Katie Holmes were spotted wearing them. But, now they can be seen on the shelves of Forever 21, Macy’s, and Zara (for us common folk!).
If you’d like to sport the trend, below are a few options.
