Yoga Style

20 Jan

Today’s Friday Style is inspired by my early morning yoga classes. I am obsessed with the first top (Nike) and loooove the cozy wrap jacket (Old Navy)! Happy Friday!




Winter Work Attire

For today’s Friday Style I thought I would show you a typical work outfit for me. I work in a professional office so heels are a necessity, but I love wearing bold jewelry & great patterns to mix up the winter doldrums.Winter Work Attire

New Year’s Eve 2011

31 Dec

I was asked to share my New Year’s Eve outfit as it is glam but easy to wear. The top & pants are courtesy of Banana Republic’s great post Christmas sale and the shoes are something I’ve been saving for a special occasion!  I love how loose (and forgiving) the top is and the pants are so comfy! We’re going to a house party so that’s why I chose those shoes – there is no way I’d be walking the streets of Seattle in those heels!

Comfortable Yet Stylish Travel Clothes

27 Dec

I have been asked to share what I wear when traveling as it is hard to find clothes that are comfortable, stylish, and can take you from one city to another. I generally opt for the black  jeggings and sweater look as it is very comfortable, takes well to layering, and can look good for a dinner out if my bags get lost (which has happened on more than one occasion). I also tend to pile on the jewelry, but I always arrive to the airport sans jewelry; I keep it in a little pouch in my purse  so after I go through security it is all in one place.

Below is a representation of what I will be wearing to take me from sunny California to gray Seattle. The only thing missing is my dark grey Banana Republic trench coat!Comfortable Yet Stylish Travel Clothes

25 Gifts for Runners: Day 25

25 Dec

Merry Christmas!!!! I hope that everyone has had a wonderful month of December and that your holidays are spent with those that you love! And for those of you who love runners, today is the final installment of the 25 Gifts for Runners series I’ve been doing here at Marathon Beauty!

25. Entry to Your Runner’s Dream Race. Why not surprise the runner in your life with an entry to his or her dream race! Does she really want to run Big Sur? How about Chicago? While some of the most sought after are only done by lottery (Nike Women’s Marathon & New York), and you have to qualify for Boston, a runner would love it if you bought them an entry into Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles and then made a fun trip out of it!

23. Rain Jacket/ Wind Breaker. There are a lot of options on this front, but one piece of gear that makes running in the winter possible is a great waterproof hooded jacket. I wear the old school LL Bean one, but here are a few more fashionable options!
