I really did not want to like the just launched New Balance for J. Crew active wear. I have a lot of active wear already. I was lured in by the color and styles (Hello, navy pattern mix!). Then I tried it on…It is ridiculously comfortable and the rise and waistband are at the perfect spot. The price point is just over half of some other active wear brands, to boot. My only concern became how much to buy and how I would make room for it, as I wanted it all. The look below is going to be on constant repeat. My other active wear is about to feel neglected.
An added bonus is that it is easy to style with all my favorite navy pieces, so that I can run errands to and from a workout. I styled the performance capri leggings in stripe with the in-transit long sleeve shirt in polka dot. I added my favorite J. Crew for NET-A-PORTER faux fur scarf, Ryan Sunglasses, my own bag and my favorite navy leopard kicks. If you have not read the story of my inspiration for the name of the blog as a result of these shoes, its here.
Even the accessories are perfect! I love the colors of these hairbands and they are just the right size.
