Bundled Up in Leopard

I can not wait for the temperatures to drop!  I am looking forward to rocking my faux fur leopard coat with everything from workout wear to evening wear.  I styled it with navy and my new favorite kicks.  My sweater is on sale and is so versatile.  I styled it here with a shirt under it.

Ring the Bell

Happy National Stripes Day!  Those of us with a stripes addiction can rejoice today.   Thank you J. Crew!  If you are like me, you had a lot of to choose from.  I selected this bell-sleeved top and styled it with a liberty print blazer, lookout jeans, New Balance kicks and my Piper sunglasses.  The look was perfect for walking around Venice in off and on rain.  I love that the top is a new silhouette for me (I featured it recently in pink, here), but it still has my favorite stripes.

Vintage Rainbow

My son calls this my rainbow shirt.  There has been a lot of talk of rainbows in my house with St. Patrick’s Day coming up.  My son is hard at work on his Leprechaun trap and we are really hoping for some gold.

I went all in on my rainbow look with a matching striped pouch.  I added a touch of gold for good luck with my New Balance kicks in salt and gold.  I completed the casual look with my new favorite Lookout Jeans and Piper Sunglasses in Ocean Blue.

Golden State

Just when I think I have my fill of t-shirts, J. Crew launches a new batch of destination art t-shirts.  How could I resist the California t-shirt?  California is home.  I have lived in California the longest, despite two stints on the East Coast and one in Chicago.  My New York City born and bred husband is not leaving California anytime soon.

I styled my golden state t-shirt with a gold pouch and gold and salt kicks.  I rounded things out with a navy blazer and Piper sunglasses in Ocean Blue  – all from J. Crew.

For other Destination Art t-shirts looks take a look at these posts: Beautiful Waste of Time, Dreaming of Paris, London Calling, New York State of Mind, Sliding Doors, I’ll take Paris and the Vineyard, and New York on the Vineyard.

Spontaneous Starry Saturday

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!

Windbreaker / Cropped Leggings / Shorts / Crop Top

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

Mani Friday – Navy Leopard Edition

This was a good week for The Navy Leopard.  I am feeling very grateful and inspired.  This week’s mani was inspired by the New Balance for J. Crew active wear that I have been wanting to wear 24/7. It was featured on Tuesday in Pattern Mix Hits the Gym.  I actually changed out of other active wear today to put it back on, it’s that comfortable!

The color is “Incognito in Sausalito” by OPI.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

Thank you for all of your support of the blog.

Happy Friday!

New York on the Vineyard

Right before I left for my vacation J. Crew came out with these “destination” art t-shirts.  I had to have the New York version.  I love the navy trim on the sleeves and neck and the graphics are just so quintessentially New York.  I styled it with  cut-off denim shorts, panama hat, sunglasses and one of my favorite pairs of New Balance for J. Crew kicks.  The color is salt and gold and they go with everything.  I love the gold.  It is the perfect polish for a pair of white kicks.  We had a leisurely afternoon at Alley’s General Store.  My son could spend hours there.  They have an unbelievable selection of toys, housewares, toiletries, supplies, you name it.  It is a true general store. It is the oldest operating business on Martha’s Vineyard and was established in 1858.  Then we headed to Oak Bluffs for a casual dinner and ice cream.
