Super Bowl Getup:

Quite often clients will ask me what to wear for a certain event; from a kid’s birthday party to a wedding.  Because the Super Bowl is this weekend I thought this would be an apropos style post.  I just read an article on what to wear for a Super Bowl party and it was rather appalling.  Put it this way, one of the items was an “essential” pair of  $1,350 leather pants.  As if.  This is my take on a perfect Super Bowl party getup.

Blank Denim Overalls:

Some of my favorite jeans are from Blank.  And the price is definitely right.  I love the rinse on these, the perfect amount of roominess (yet they’re still fitted) and the side zippers.

Rodarte Sweatshirt:

Cute and cozy. It’s pretty RAD.

Matt Bernson Boots:

Roll down the top of these shearling-lined boots  and roll up the bottom of the overalls.  Tuck them haphazardly into the boots for a casual yet cool look.

Go Seahawks!

Koolaburra Steals:

chukka

I live for a good deal and I love to share my steals with my readers (let me do the dirty work and you reap the benefit!).  Both styles of these Koolaburra boots are 40% off right now.   Unfortunately in the case of these booties I’m not a size 7, but for those ladies who are, these Chukka Boots are pretty awesome in that boho chic kind of way.  Pair them with rolled up boyfriend jeans or cargos.

These Jovi boots  come in brown and black, and are available (for now) in various sizes.  This cold weather take on the combat boot not only looks cool with leggings or skinny jeans, but also can be worn in the snow.

Sneaker Boots:

This week’s snow storm called for footwear that emphasizes function over form.  Luckily, thanks to Ked’s  and their generosity (my first delivery to the new house this Summer), I didn’t have to compromise either component.  These faux-shearling boots have the comfort of sneakers with the durability of snow boots, despite the fact that they’re made of leather and not nylon or rubber.  The shearling inside is cozy enough so that you don’t even need to wear socks with them.  I put that to the test yesterday when I traipsed in the snow and built a snowman with Colette.

Walnut Body Lotion

unnamed-3

It’s no surprise to people that I love Mario Badescu products.  I’ve written several posts on my favorite products and even profiled my twice daily facial regiment.   A product that’s new to me, but not new to the line, is the Walnut Body Lotion.  It’s creamy without being oily, and smells delicious without being overwhelming–the perfect lotion to lather on after a bath on this snowy snowy day.

(P.S. the price is right too.  The smaller bottle, as seen here, is only $10 and lasts a long time!)

A Kick Butt Class:

The last time I’ve done any sort of kickboxing was as my college gym class.  I remember loving it but I also know that was many years ago (more than I’d like to admit).  I recently joined Equinox in town and decided to try the famous Cardio Box, aka “Rob’s class”.  I went last Wednesday morning, slightly intimidated by the amount of ladies who showed up coupled with the fact that I haven’t done an organized class since before I was pregnant.  I’m always hesitant of classes and the level of intensity.  If I’m going to be present in a room for 45 minutes to 1 hour I want it to be a real deal workout.  Well let me tell you, this class more than lived up to my expectations.  For a whole four days later I could barely stretch my legs, and my arms, forget about it.  I also loved the fact that it was a full hour class.  Whichever Equinox you belong to you should be able to find Cardio Box.

For non-members, and for a free trial, just bring in the below pass to any Equinox and email gerald.conlan@equinox.com
