Style Details No. 196

The most common goal I hear year after year is: “This is the year I’m going to start working out.” Well, if this is your goal, I believe in the look good, feel good method. So, it’s time to stock up on some new activewear.  I should mention, Style Details normally consists of items I want/need, but today is all about my ten tried and true products that I love and can’t live without.

  1. Tory Burch Leggings / 2. Nike Free Running Shoes / 3. PowerBeats3 / 4. Water Bottle / 5. Nike Pullover / 6. Outdoor Voices Bra / 7. Vyper Foam Roller / 8. The Beauty Chef Cleanse / 9. Agent Nateur Deodorant / 10. Monrow Sweatpants

This year #1 on my journey to wellness is to get in the best shape of my life. Anyone else?! I have always been pretty consistent at working out. From age two until 18, I was a competitive dancer, in addition to dancing, in high school I was a cheerleader, and in college I was so nervous to gain the Freshman fifteen that I spent endless hours on the elliptical machine (sad to say but the beer outweighed the workouts…hey it was college).

Post college I found a few open dance classes and then fell in love with Fusion Fitness in Kansas City.  When we moved to Dallas, I tried all of the workouts. Seriously, you name it, I tried it! I got really into spin, then modified crossfit (more like high intensity interval training), then hot power yoga, then I hurt my hip and took a break. I rested my muscles and let my body heal. I was still active during these six months, but nothing super intense.  Once I got back to 100%, I started taking Endurance Barre at Equinox, which is still my favorite class. Monica’s class makes me feel like I am back in the ballet studio. At the end of last year, I decided to make a change. I have had the BBG book for over a year (If you want to know what BBG is, click here). I did workouts here and there, but never stuck to the routine.  So it has been four weeks and here is the breakdown of my new schedule.


Monday: BBG and a run

Tuesday: Endurance Barre and a long walk

Wednesday: BBG and an interval run

Thursday: Endurance Barre and 30 minutes on the stairmaster

Friday: BBG

Saturday: Spin

Have any of you finished the BBG 12 week program? I feel like I am already starting to see little results from the workouts and my energy level is wayy up.


Shopbop has the cutest activewear. I am obsessed with these sneakers. I want to try them before I give them a glowing review, but boy are they cute!

Outdoor Voices wins the award for best designs and colors.  They really just get me.  I have this set in black and navy and these two toned pants, too. I also have this style which I love for hot yoga.

Athleta is great for tanks and jackets. These crop tanks are my favorite.

Nordstrom has a great selection of Nike and Alo. I got this Nike pullover for Christmas and have been wearing it non-stop!

On a different note than clothes, but equally as important. This foam roller is EVERYTHING. Patrick bought it this past summer after reading endless articles about the benefit of foam rolling. I was skeptical at first because it is a little pricey, but I was so so wrong. I use it every single day.
