FIT FASH FRIDAY || OFF ROUTE 5

Jesse and I drove up north to attend the Lightning in a Bottle Festival. (Which by the way was incredible. That blog will post Sunday so come back!) I found that a lot of my fitness attire could double as festival fashion. I had so much fun playing with patterns, prints and different styles to create my own festival look. 

We stopped somewhere off the 5 freeway the day before the festival to stretch our legs and thought this weird little area would be fun to shoot against.

If you don't know already, I recycle ALL my clothes that aren't fitness attire. I mainly shop at Crossroads Trading and Buffalo Exchange. But I frequent random vintage shops and trading posts that I stumble upon both in NY and LA and wherever else I travel. 

The tights and sports bra are by Vie Active. I love a lot of brands but I have to say that Vie Active is probably my favorite. I just feel like their clothes were made to fit my body. I pretty much live in these leopard tights. Leopard is of course, my favorite color, but the materials Vie Active tights are made of are so luxe they like second skin. There's really nothing like them. 

The white shift dress, hat and boots (which are Miu Miu) are all from Crossroads Trading and probably cost me about $65 all together. The sunnies are from the boardwalk in Venice Beach. The necklaces are old school J Crew. This type of accessory is slightly out of style, but it brought some needed color to my outfit and at festival... anything goes. 

My hair... was braided by @misty_extensions in Beverly Hills. SHE IS AMAZING. I stalked her on instagram and called her up to make an appointment. Since showers were scarce and I find my new short haircut intolerable, I figured this would be both practical and badass. I loved it so much you might see me rockin' braids again very soon! 

FIT FASH FRIDAY || MAY FLOWERS

First Friday! Our Most Favorite Day. Jesse Deyoung and I headed out to play in the May sunshine and capture the colors of sping before they faded away. We didn't have to travel far. This beautiful park is on the corner of Los Feliz and Riverside Dr. 5 minutes from our front door. Hope you enjoy! 

How cool is this circular sculpture? The fountain in the back is gorgeous too, but this bit of public art created a perfect playground to shoot in. I'm in SukiShufu again and embracing their hashtag #sukininjas by climbing all over this thing in anyway I could.

I love this soft yellow print. I wouldn't normally choose an outfit like this for myself, but it's so lightweight and breathable, it feels great to move and sweat in. Though the color is soft, it really stands out against all the black and neon you normally find in fitness fashion. And the white leatherback bra and leggings give it just a hint of edginess it needs.

 

FIT FASH FRIDAY || HELLO SPRING!

The first five days after the weekend are the hardest. Thank God for Fridays! And for Spring! As you know on the first Friday of every month this year Photographer Jesse DeYoung and I are gonna showcase some of our latest and greatest #FitFash Finds. Enjoy!

After a recent run in search of new trails at Griffith Park (basically our backyard) we came across this incredible field of orange and yellow wildflowers. We were like, we HAVE to shoot here.

When SukiShufu sent this gorgeous blue cloud print two piece we knew this would be the ultimate spring look to share. Top and Leggings by SukiShufu. The sneaks, I found at shoe store in Rome (at the very top of Via Del Corso)  but I know that Puma and Supra make a similar silver shoe, which is really the perfect choice to compliment these sky blue leggings.

There's two pairs of sunnies featured here; the pale pink and blue are by Crap Eyewear, my absolute favorite brand for shades. You can find them online or in Venice Beach, CA. The yellow and blue are a street wear find from a tiny shop in TaiPei Taiwan. But have fun with your sunglasses this spring! I love bright colors and fun shapes, I mean... why not?

May all your weeks be wildflowers and all your dreams a walk through the clouds.
