My first Saturday blog post. I had to share this Star-Print Windbreaker from the New Balance for J. Crew active wear collection. I loved the first roll out of the New Balance for J. Crew active wear and featured it in Pattern Mix Hits the Gym. I longed for a zip jacket. I need a jacket to carry my phone and keys and I love to have a jacket for warmth in the cold and sun protection. This jacket is perfect for all that and even makes it impossible to use rain as an excuse not to work out.
The star print is so cute!
It is no secret I am partial to navy and the Star-print Windbreaker works perfectly with my Fitbit Flex 2 in navy and New Balance for J. Crew Performance Leggings, which are hands-down THE most COMFORTABLE leggings I have every worn. Best of all, I never need to pull them up, they stay put.
I have to admit there are days where I wear my active wear all day. Sometimes it is one of those days where I intend to workout and won’t take it off until I do. Other times it is just one of those busy days with back to back meetings and activities. Luckily, I swap one piece (jacket or legging) and look professional. I love that this line is so stylish that I don’t feel like I need to hide or apologize for my workout attire. My real dilemma at this point is what NOT to buy, because I love it all. I feel sorry for my other active wear that is just taking up drawer space while the New Balance for J. Crew is on constant repeat and it was just about half the price!
Rain or Shine – I will look stylish
I can see this windbreaker working with more than active wear.
