I love Trina Turk clothing. The introduction of an activewear line to Trina Turk was exciting! My peers, community, and my readers all have a sense of style and I know would love the newest TT endeavor. This collection fuses fashion and function. I love it!
The collection currently consists of: shorts, leggings (mid and full length), jackets, sports bras, tank tops, long and short sleeve model tops and a track suit. The colors and patterns range from neutral solids to classic Trina Turk prints.
In addition to looking fabulous while working out, this Trina Turk collection would make great stylish loungewear. I can already see so many of these items working into my world. A short run or Pure Barre class straight to school pick up. All while looking great!
Thanks Trina for continuing to broaden your collection!

It is that time of year! The weather is cooling off and all of my scarves are coming out. The one void in my scarf repertoire, a workout scarf, was just filled. What a great idea! A scarf that is easily washable, SPF 20, can be thrown over your workout clothes and instantly morph you from sweaty to stylishly sweaty.
The first thing my husband said when I tried on the scarf is, that looks like something you will wear all of the time. He was right! My Borelli scarf can go everywhere. A warm accessory on a cool morning school drop-off that can double as a sweat towel during a difficult Pure Barre class. What more could an on-the-go momma want!
The website WWW.BORELLIDESIGN.COM demonstrates the many different ways this versatile scarf can be worn, along with step by step instructions. Marissa Borelli also designs scarfs, baby blankets, kids scarfs, hair accessories and other items for men, women and children.

Finding a stylish, comfortable shoe can be challenging. One of my favorite casual styles is a loafer. It’s often hard to find a good looking loafer in navy. This shoe has a navy body and a burgundy top piece accented with a silver button. The shoe also comes in black with a dark grey top or in brown.
The workmanship is excellent. The leather is soft and the finishing touches are superb. None of the seams rub the foot. Also there is an elastic band at the arch to make that fit perfectly. There is no breaking in period with this shoe. The rubber sole is designed for a comfortable fit and well suited for a day of shopping or walking. I especially appreciated the built-in arch support and foot pad.
I have an easy foot to fit and can wear most brands. I am a 6 1/2 M and this shoe runs wide. It gaps at the arch and slips badly on both heels. Once I inserted heel pads, the shoes fit better. Since I have never worn this brand before, I would choose an N width next time.
I think these shoes look great with jeans and leggings. They would be versatile for travel, shopping and, of course, work. They can be found at www.cobbhill.com and also www.shoebuy.com. The price is $89.99.

I admit my running skorts are on the short side. At the same time I recently had a run in with a skort that was too short. It got me thinking.
Houston we have a problem! The picture above is my daughter wearing a size 2 Lululemon running skirt. Yep, this is real. To Lululemon’s defense the skirt looked tiny, was on final sale and in all honesty I thought was part of a new kids line. Speaking of a Lululemon kids line, they have one called Ivivva located at www.ivivva.com. I checked and my daughter’s skirt is not from Ivivva. For the record my 5 year old just had her well visit and she is in the 50% for weight (40lbs) and 75% for height. She is not a giant.
I am a runner that used to have skirt/outfit envy when looking at my tennis playing peers. The running skirt revolution was soo overdue. I welcome the comfortable, stylish, flattering and added fun that skirts bring. To be clear there are shorts, bike shorts, under running skirts. The skorts may be short, but we feel a little more covered up with two layers. Am I among the women who wear running skirts too short? That is totally subjective. Personally if something is hanging out or completely unflattering then that particular style of skirt may not be the best choice.
