So here’s something I really have yet to see anyone bring up, Fashionable fitness wear?!?!? Lets face it part of the motivation to work out (other than looking good naked) is rocking some kickass gear. I don’t know about you but nothing motivates me more than putting on some bright neon shoes, fitted crops and a tank and rocking out at the gym. The selection of gear has gotten better over the years admittedly but I think still has a bit to go. I don’t know about you but I’m not in Lulumons demographic (mama got bills and likes to eat) but there are some places that make cute stuff. I mean honestly what average person has $80 for reversible workout pants? I’ve found some great stuff at the Gap, Old Navy, Target, and Ladies Foot Locker. Plus I like finding that one day my workout clothes don’t fit and going to buy some fresh new threads. I mean seriously, LFL has a neon tank for $19.99!!!!!!!!!!
I gave some links to some of these spots. What’s your take?
Looking for some trendy items to work into your wardrobe? Then check out Target. Not only do they do fashion collabs but even their in house items are pretty fab. Of course neon is one of the biggest trends and they have that covered with scarves, belts and even work out wear. Plus the accessories are fun and reasonably priced. They had a cute faux leather mossimo bag and look at the belt selection! So the next time your looking for a quick fix check out Target.
So today I lost my bet, and took myself out for a nice Italian dinner in Chelsea. I stopped in a spot called Intermezzo and it was worth it. As with most NYC spots small space but done in clean classic lines and colors. Food was fresh and done well, plus they were what serving sizes should be, just enough to fill you up. I ordered the caprese ensalda (mozzarella, tomatoes, EVOO, and balsamic vinegar), penne a la vodka, and of course creme brulee. The noodles were a la dente and the salad fresh. As far as the creme brulee, you could tell they had just pulled it from the fridge and caramelized the sugar mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Overall 4 out 5 forks.
