Cheers to four years

4 year

Tomorrow marks The Written Runway’s 4th birthday!  As crazy as it is to think I’ve been blogging for 4 years, it truly does feel like the blog is a big part of my life and I can’t remember life before it.  Thank you to everyone who has followed along and engaged on the blog and social media.  I am baking up something good for you guys, so stay tuned for a fresh new look on TWR.

Let’s “flashback Friday” to my blog birthdays in years 1, 2 and 3.  Be sure to also follow along in my social-party: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube & Pinterest.

Super Bowl style

A1 copy

We’re just three days away from Super Bowl Sunday and I cannot wait!  I’m bleeding blue and green with excitement for the Seahawks to take on the Patriots.  As a self-proclaimed 12th Man, I’m happy to show off my fashion-meets-football style.  My inner cheerleader is always about coordinating from head to toe with an abundance of color.  Even though you can’t see them, my toes are even Seahawks-blue.  Get ready to show your team spirit with pops of Super Bowl-inspired colors.  Go Hawks!

What’s your Super Bowl style?

Jersey: Nike, Blazer: H&M, Jeans: Old Navy
Heels: Steve Madden, Sunglasses: Oakley
Nail Polish: OCC Makeup and Revlon

No Editions

Runway- No Editions M F 15

The coat is making its statement.  At No Editions Fall 2015 menswear show in Paris, the coats were not to be missed.  Like numerous menswear collections for fall, the coat is the must-have piece of the season.  No Editions used an assortment of details to bring their coats to life.  Everything from patches of fabric that created a striped effect to exposed zippers and trims of shortly cut fur were accenting the coats.  Wide, notched lapels laid open across the chest on a trench styled coats.  I love the rich color palette, full of hunter green, navy blue and pitch black hues.  Get ready for statement-making menswear next season!

Which detail is your favorite in No Editions coats?

Back to the grind

Everything- Back to the grind W 15

We’re back from Georgia and back to reality.  After a good, long vacation away I’m excited to get back in the kitchen cooking and in the studio dancing.  With a health-kick on my mind, I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces for working out.  I like a workout outfit that makes me feel comfortable and still fashion-forward.  A pop of color or a playful print always brightens up a workout, especially when you’re just not in the mood that day.  Just remember, a 20 minute walk is doing more productive than 20 minutes of tv  even though I’m totally all about watching tv while stretching!  Let’s get moving!

What are your must have brands when working out?

Jacket: Oakley
Scarf: Nike
Tights: Nike
Shoes: Nike
Sunglasses: Oakley

Tomas Maier

Runway- Tomas Maier R 15 1

We’re headed back to DC from Atlanta today and I’m dreaming I was driving a little further south to the sunshine in Florida the Florida Keys to be specific.  Since I’m not, let’s swoon over the beautiful, Resort 2015 collection by Tomas Maier.  I seriously cannot get enough of this collection, I would wear every single piece.  This first two looks are what I wish I was wearing and the style of outfit I will be wearing in DC just add boots, gloves and a scarf.  I’m a summer dress girl by heart.  The details are perfectly curated in each look, from micro printed fabrics to pockets.  Casual-minimalism is radiating in each style.  The silhouettes are a great balance between slim fit and over-sized-with-ease.  The woman who’ll wear this collection loves a well-designed outfit that is effortless and cool.  I can’t stop looking through the pieces as they all speak to my California-girl style and love for a well crafted garment.

Which Tomas Maier look would you wear?

Atlanta styling

Everything- Atlanta Styling W 15

After settling into my vacation here in Atlanta, I’m excited to explore the fashion styles of the celebrity scene.  As we know, celebrities set the tone for a huge portion of people’s style inspiration.  Each of these pieces is taking cue from a celebrity who was born or lived in the Atlanta area.  I love the eclectic assortment of talent that has stemmed from this town.  Julia Roberts speaks to the woman’s style who is classic, rocking the pants suit and still looking for a simple touch of sex appeal with an accentuated waist and drop-neckline.  India.Arie channels the bohemian styled woman who wears everything from fringe and head wraps to stacks of gold accessories.  Usher is the king of swag with his iconic oversized eyewear that leaves people wondering more about the man behind the lenses.  Ryan Seacrest’s style speaks to the classy, well-tailored man’s wardrobe.  It doesn’t matter where you’re from or where you live, find a style that represents you best and rock it!  More from TWR in Atlanta all weekend long here.

What piece from your wardrobe represents your style?
