feelin’ bad ass

I’ve been wanting to start boxing for years.  For one, it’s a great work out.  It’s also pretty bad ass.  I happily shed my put together exterior, clear my mind of any stress and worry, and just focus on learning.  When you put the worries of the world aside, even if just for an hour long class, you can be that bad ass that already lives inside you.  What makes it easier?  Back Bay Boxing offers drop in classes with no obligation to buying in bulk or having a monthly membership.  You simply pay as you go, how refreshing!

When feelin’ bad ass you must also look cute.  My workout gear these days is provided by two brands I am a loyal buyer of.  Leggings and top from Fabletics.  It’s new and unfamiliar to some, but trust me, so worth it!  Sneakers by York Athletics.  A local Boston company crafting minimalist pieces with the simplest and most elusive branding, designed for maximum performance.

The last crop top of the summer…and possibly… life.  I mean, how long can we rock these things?!  What is the cut off?! (pun intended, teehee)  Can’t go wrong with a black fitted crop top with high waisted black pants.  I’ll be bringing these culottes right on into fall with me as long as I possibly can, which will most likely only be a few weeks, sadly.  They are so comfy and chic!  The stretchy waistband makes them the easiest to wear, yet the sleek dart placements add an interesting design element and flattering fit.

The earrings are my favorite!  This outfit was the perfect opportunity to wear them (I’ll use any excuse).  The top knot really ties together the entire outfit, giving it that “I Dream of Jeannie” feel.  If only I could grant some wishes!

It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest fan of wearing color.  To some, this may translate as a more masculine aesthetic, which I embrace.  But, sometimes a girl just wants to be girly! Enter…wait for it…ruffles!!  Ok, so there’s still no color here, cut me some slack!  But, this dress is completely girly in every other way.  It’s off the shoulder, adding sex appeal, the ruffled sleeves add all the girly, and the slit in the back is just magical!  I love the way it subtly exposes the smallest and curviest piece of back.  Gotta love that subtle sexy.  I paired the dress with camel leather block shoes, keeping things neutral yet slightly less black+white+grey as I tend to.
