Fitness is a really important part of my life. I’m prone to being a stress case, so I love the opportunity to turn everything off and sweat it all out. Here’s a peek at my best get-sweaty looks.
Bikram is my therapy! I aim to get to the studio three mornings a week, usually on my busiest weekdays so that I can get centered before the crazy comes. I think my most productive workouts are my sweatiest ones, and there is no lack of that when you spend 90 minutes in a 105-degree room. I keep my wardrobe minimal so the laundry isn’t as daunting; a sports bra and little boogie shorts do the trick.
I do most of my spinning on the weekends, because that’s when the class times are most convenient for me. I love to do a 9am on a Saturday–it makes me feel energized all day (and a little less guilty for that second martini on Saturday night). My go-to gear is a long bike pant and a tank top with a built-in sports bra. I like something streamlined so it doesn’t get in the way of my ride.
Cardio at the Gym
When I can’t commit to a class time or am in a crunch, I’ll head to my gym for some cardio and light weights. I like 45 minutes on the stair climber or elliptical, usually in running shorts and an old college T-shirt swiped from my husband’s drawer.
Even in the colder months, I love getting a little fresh air when I exercise. I live close to Central Park, so I take my bike around the 6-mile loop once or twice. They key is to layer up so you don’t freeze your butt off! I usually wear my bike pants, a sweat-wicking top, a zip-up jacket, and a fleece or a vest on top.

Memories of playing with sidewalk chalk as a child eventually fade, but with pastel shades making their mark on the runways and in stores, everyone gets a chance to bring the chalk back to the streets.
Pastel separates for the summer are great for both day and night. Pieces can be mixed, matched and layered to offer multiple looks. To get that easy, breezy summer look, stick with light and airy fabrics.
If you want to get more out of the versatile trend, pair with black and white for extra boldness. We also love adding gold jewelry and fun shoes!
