I’ve added a few different series to the blog this year (including personal style) for more of a personal touch. Of course everything I talk about on the site are topics I am interested in, but this particular series of inspiration is supposed to put everything together a bit. A few of these (definitely Fashion Week & triathlon training) will consume most of my weekend. Have a great weekend! And don’t forget to shop the Peter Pilotto x Target collection on Sunday!
It’s Day 2 of New York Fashion Week! While everyone else is excited about the Olympics, I’m more excited about seeing what trends are coming up for Fall 2014.

I realize that with a petite frame, oversized clothes aren’t always the most flattering. But, I’ve always been a fan and the same goes with the oversized coat. Although it’s already February, San Francisco tends to be a bit chilly year round so I’m off to scour the sales for a great deal on a bright colored oversized coat. By the way, oversized coats are all over the runways so this trend isn’t going away anytime soon.
Lipstick is a beauty essential for me, and I love to make a statement with it. I typically go for all shades of red (and more recently some berry shades). Orange lip colors will be on trend for Spring, and while they do make a statement… orange can be a difficult color to match with any skin tone. I do like the look, so I’m going to be searching for the right shade for my olive skin.

Lastly, I started my triathlon training this week. This season is my second training, and so far I’m signed up for a few races between April and June. Triathlon training is time consuming and challenging, from both a mental and physical standpoint. I’m all about mantras and this is what I keep telling myself anytime I want to stop. It helps (at least most of the time).
