Running Gear

See, I told you I wore neon orange running shoes. And they make me run faster. Obvi.

These leggings are the last of the items I picked out at Aéropostale a few weeks ago. I've got running shorts and tights, but these are my first pair of capris - I'm a new fan! I am digging the marled gray, as opposed to the ever popular black. 

this headband was in a swag bag from the event at Aéropostale
You like? What do you think? Would you try out a new brand of workout gear? Specifically Live Love Dream?

shoes: local running store, but they're Mizuno Wave Inspire 9s

Aéro Rocks Fashion

this is a sponsored post, however, all opinions are my own

Several weeks ago, Aéropostale reached out to me about an event they were hosting at my local store last Monday. They were unveiling their new fall line, and invited me and two guests to attend. They covered their store windows after close on Sunday, and unveiled their new look at 4 pm on Monday for their Aero Rocks Fashion event, all over the country. 

I hadn't been to an Aéro since my freshman year of college, I think - that whole "college student budget" thing (my budget was that I had ZERO money to spend on clothes). But I was blown away by the items in the store - lots of cute sweaters, tops, jackets, pants, shoes, jewelry - you name it! I used to have several polo shirts from Aéro, as did most of my friends, in high school, and I'll admit, I wore those things out! Aéropostale has refreshed their look, and I'm a big fan! I came home with some great things to rock this fall (below).

I'm a terrible blogger - this is the only picture I took at the event. It's a maxi dress - the light makes it look green-ish, but it was actually more of a tan/khaki. Really cute, but a bit too long for this shortie here. *sigh*

 Can we talk about those faux leather trim ponté pants?? SO excited to have found them! I'm imagining them with boots and a big sweater this fall & winter. They're along the lines of "riding pants," but are a bit edgy with the faux leather on the sides. *swoon*

 These marled contrast-stitch active cropped leggings are part of Aéro's active line, Live Love Dream. I've got running shorts, and running tights, but these are my first pair of capris. They immediately caught my eye because of the pretty marled gray color, and the neon stitching. I told you neon makes me run faster, right? My running shoes are bright orange #truestory #proof #justkiddingimstillreallyslow

I've got several races coming up this fall, and these will be perfect for a chilly morning event here in Colorado. And they're a little different than the typical black capris/leggings that everyone else seems to wear ;)

I've got some great ideas in mind for these new pieces and can't wait to share them with you! Be sure to check out the new arrivals at Aéropostale - there are some great items at really affordable price points!

Happy Monday! Sorry, no Mr. Picks Mondays today or last week - he's been in Vegas since Saturday, so I had to pick out my own outfit :/ tough way to start the week, I know!

And please accept my apology for my week long absence - big changes in our little family! I've switched jobs and my sweet Mr. got a promotion! More on that soon!
