My Fit Style

Kitties + Couture: My Fit Style

Top: Chi Tank c/o | Sweater: Olympus Sweater c/o | Bottoms: Chat tights c/o | Shoes: New Balance c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker via Poshmark (same style, different color)

I made a vow to myself at the beginning of last year to keep my fitness in check. Now that I’m in my late 20s, I notice and feel my metabolism and energy levels slowing down and after a few health scares, taking care of myself is more important than ever. I’ll be the first one to admit that I definitely indulge (french fries and bread!) and probably don’t eat enough greens, but I definitely try my best to find a balance that works for me – and I think that’s what I’ve achieved.

My weekly routine consists of 3 days of 1-hour Zumba classes at my local Equinox (intense, high-cardio) and as much walking as I can get. Luckily, San Francisco is definitely a walking city and I’m fortunate enough to have the Embarcadero in my backyard. That’s why when Athleta reached out and asked me to style some of their new spring arrivals, I jumped at the opportunity. There’s no better motivation to workout than new, cute workout clothes!

And let me tell you – ever since I got each of these pieces in the mail, I have had a hard time NOT wearing them, especially because I can easily transition them into my casual street style. The sweater (with thumb holes!) and crisp white running shoes have been in heavy rotation. However, my favorite out of all of them may have to be these tights. They’re SO comfortable, warm (but not too warm when you sweat!), and come in petite sizing so I don’t have to worry about them bunching at the bottom.

Sequins & Knit: #LoveYourLatte Giveaway

Kitties + Couture: Sequins & Knit #LoveYourLatte

Sweater: Target | Skirt: H&M | Shoes: Brian Atwood | Sunglasses: Tory Burch | Watch: Michael Kors

Finding different ways to wear an otherwise night-time appropriate style, such as this gold sequin skirt, is pretty rewarding in my opinion. I’ve had this skirt for a couple of years and I was really excited to pull it out to play again as part of my Starbucks Caramel Flan Latte-inspired style challenge. While my legs are pretty much see-through (I need a beach stat!), I still loved this simple, yet eye-catching combination of sequins with an over-sized knit sweater.

I’m LOVING all of your entries for my Starbucks Giveaway so far! I’ve seen some really creative outfits (hello, inspiration!) and can’t wait to see more. For those of you who are new to my blog or missed my posts last week, Starbucks and I have partnered up to give one lucky and stylish reader a $100 gift card!

To be entered into the random draw, all you have to do is style a look around the Caramel Flan Latte and share it with me through one of the following channels:

3. Instagram a picture and tag me (@justmamor) and Starbucks (@starbucks) and use the hashtag #LoveYourLatte. **Please make sure your profile is set to public so I can see the picture!**

Yes to Love

Kitties + Couture: Oui a' l'amour

Tee: Sincerely Jules | Jeans: Mango | Blazer: c/o bebe | Shoes: LAMB c/o DSW | Clutch: Zara | Sunglasses: D&G | Necklace: c/o bombom Jewelry | Watch: Michael Kors “Bradshaw” | Rings: Topshop, Colombia

I have a love / dislike relationship with Valentine’s Day. While I don’t feel like you need a special day to remind you to do or say something nice to your significant other, or that you need to be with a significant other in the first place, I do appreciate the notion of spreading love – whether that love is with your partner, mom, sister, co-worker, or friend. And there’s plenty of cost-effective (or even free!) ways to spread that love.

Some of my favorites:

  • Bright flowers: there’s nothing like fresh flowers to wake up to in the morning
  • A thoughtful card: words have so much meaning
  • A commitment to do something nice for others together: community service, volunteer at the homeless shelter, etc.

What will you be doing to spread that love around?
