Ever notice that when you look good you feel good? Conversely, The same is true. When you feel good, you look good. It’s a healthy cycle that feels amazing when you’re in a good rhythm, but that’s easier said than done.  I’m always more motivated to get in the gym/run outside/do yoga (and such public exercises) when I’ve got gear that fits well, and looks cool. Naturally, I choose mostly black, because when investing in more expensive workout clothes, I like to think that the more basic, the more versatile they will be. Black leggings will go with everything, and are obviously more flattering. A neutral bra with a cute print is the same. I’m averse to the neon/reflective and totally nauseating workout clothes making a comeback, because the last thing I want to do is stick out like a traffic sign in the middle of the gym. If you’ve ever made the long walk from the cardio room through the weights to the locker room, you know your tight-ass pants can leave you feeling like, for lack of a better term, a piece of meat. I’m not trying to call attention to myself at the gym in LA, where that walk feels more like the last judgement…I’m keeping things on the DL. My last tip is that it’s important to purchase pieces that that translate from gym to everyday outings, and ones that can be used for other activities besides sports. In So-Cal, its completely appropriate to wear a cute pair of cut out leggings (shown above), with a nicer comfy tee and cute bralette, outside of the gym. Add an oversized tote that doubles as a grocery bag and you’re set. It’s comfy-chic, and looks effortless…because it was.

Everything here explains what I would like today. Coffee, minimalism, comfy shoes, blogging, candles, sushi. Alas, I am a working girl now, and its Monday…so thats a no-go. The good news? Vacation is on the horizon…I leave for a week in Colorado this Saturday. Summer Red Rocks shows are calling my name. Flume, Cut Copy Chromeo=dancing all night. I just have to get through this week.

Tonight’s the night where millions of Americans tune in to watch the Victorias Secret Fashion Show, a theatrical parade of women in their underwear. In honor of this day, I would like to share some non-sparkly, non-pink, skivvies that have caught my eye lately. For Love and Lemons a rad clothing line created by fellow Buff, Gillian Mahin and her best friend Laura Hall, has released it’s first season of lingerie. Sophisticated, strappy, under things reminiscent of European lingerie, but with a bit of fun thrown in (see the papillon bralette). P.S. the longline bralette looks amazing under a little black dress, and adds a touch of intrigue to a black silk tank. P.S.S. I love to use Soak Wash’s Lacey Lingerie Wash for all of my delicates.
