I always like to work Flywheel or Dailey Method cycle classes into my week, so keeping my gym bag fully stocked is a necessity. From my go-to sneaks to my favorite fuel, my gym bag essentials are listed below!
Kicks: I live in my Nikes, especially because I walk to work. I recently added the grey Lunarepic Low Flyknit 2 to my sneaker collection and wear them every single day! They’re perfect for throwing on before a class or wearing for weekend errands.
Hydrate: Having a trusty water bottle is a must, and I’m loyal to my S’Well bottle in rose gold. It’s always by my side! It’s ideal for group classes or hydrating throughout the day.
Pullover: I always like to have a pullover in my gym bag to throw on before and after a work-out. I live in this lululemon athletica Define Jacket, which was shockingly gifted to me by brothers (they have better taste in athleisure than I do!).
Snack: I’m a big believer in having a light snack a few hours before a cycle or yoga class and always have raw almonds or these Kashi GoLean bars in my bag for some extra fuel before heading out!
Hold-All Hair Accessories: As an ex-J.Crew employee, I try to support their brand. I was so excited when they partnered with New Balance to launch a line of athletic wear and have been loving the headbands to keep hair in place and add a pattern to an ordinary work-out ensemble.
Bag: This Adidas by Stella McCartney gym bag is the perfect carry-all for a post work class. I love its stylish design and color — it goes with me everywhere!
What’s in your gym bag?
This year marks an exciting time in my life as many of my close friends are starting to get married. After the engagement, the celebrations continue for months, from bridal showers to bachelorette parties and finally, the wedding weekend. With half of my summer weekends already booked with these events, I’m planning ahead to ensure I have all the essentials a bridesmaid/wedding guest needs.
CALPAK Davis Carry-On
I’ve been on the hunt for a new carry-on suitcase for a while but haven’t been able to commit. This one is chic, practical and the price is right.
Miss Selfridge Rhinestone Bow Back Sandals
I haven’t started shopping for outfits, but it’s a given that neutral shoes will be essential for all summertime soirees. I love that these are simple with a feminine twist.
Jen Atkin X Chloe + Isabel Pearl Pin Set
I love a good hair accessory and will definitely rock these on the reg this summer.
Sonix Preston Sunglasses
No matter the weather, I rarely go outside without sunglasses on and always like to cop a new pair for summer. I’m obsessed with this lighter tortoise option paired with gold framing.
Vans Classic Slip-On Sneakers
A good pair of slip-ons is key for airport travel and Vans have been a longtime favorite. The next addition to my collection will definitely be blush pink.
Cheers Foam Cups
I’m all about festive drinkware, so I’m stocking up on these for all the bridal festivities in my near future.
Kendall Jenner is killing it these days and I *love* it. I know, I know … I can’t believe I’m admitting this either. But, Kenny has come a long way from her humble beginnings on E!, and I can’t ignore her swag any longer. Her style is simple with a splash of personality and her hair and makeup looks are always on point. From red carpets to the runway (both fashion and airport), I’ve been keeping up with Kendall’s style and really like what I see.
This might be my favorite outfit a Kardashian/Jenner has ever worn. This Elie Saab number combines a few of my favorite things: matching sets, mixed textures, and a cool neutral color palette. I’m also really into the casual hairstyle with such a glam ensemble.
This look is right in my wheelhouse: basics with a twist. Total model off-duty goals.
Kendall has a knack for finding dresses that look like they were made for her. Exhibit A: this Versace printed wrap.
Vintage Chanel in the perfect shade of pink. Need I say more?
Maybe it’s the early 2000s tween in me, but I’m kind of obsessed with the t-shirt and giant hoops. The Yeezy boots add a modern vibe (and confirm that the family that slays fashion together, stays together.)
What star has pleasantly surprised you with her style lately?
My bag is all about practical necessities, especially during the colder months. In addition to an extensive selection of lip balms, warm gloves and cozy hat, these are the items I can’t leave home without.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam
I’m a huge fan of Jen Atkin and her brand, Ouai Haircare, is one of the most represented lines in my (overstocked) beauty collection. When they announced their new Dry Shampoo Foam, I immediately opened my Sephora app and placed an order. Two days later, I was in love. I’ve tried a range of dry shampoos over the years and this one beats them all; it not only erases oil and product build-up, but adds INSANE volume. I’m patiently waiting for the travel size version but until then, this has a permanent place in my purse for hat hair touch-ups.
NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Bound
This is the perfect product for anyone with dry lips who prefers matte finishes over a standard gloss. These are hydrating, longwearing and dry super-fast — the ideal combo! I love this neutral shade for both day and night.
Rose Quartz Corkcicle Canteen
Major alert: Hydration is essential. This stainless steel canteen keeps my water ice cold, whether I’m out running errands or posted up at my desk. Plus, it’s the perfect shade of blush pink.
Aveda Rosemary Mint Composition Oil
I can’t get enough of this calming oil! Dab a bit on your neck, wrists or temples for a quick fix when that midday headache hits.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
My testy skin has gone from “oh, no…” to “yes, glow!” since I started adding 1-2 scoops of this into my morning smoothie. This powder offers a boost of collagen, which helps keep skin, hair and nails healthy — pretty great, right? I’m officially hooked and always make sure to carry extras for my coffee at the office. If I’m not a big enough celeb fan for you, Jennifer Aniston swears by it, too.
What are your winter must-haves?
There is nothing I admire more than someone who exudes complete confidence through their personal style. In my eyes, the Man Repeller herself, Leandra Medine represents this like no other fashionista in the game. She has this magic ability to take individual pieces and find a million different ways to wear them. That is the genius of the Man Repeller, and these are just a few of my favorite Leandra moments.
Denim on denim, a floor length trench coat and casual sneakers. Only Leandra can make this chic enough for Fashion Week.
I am officially wearing a moto jacket over my wedding dress. Done and done.
I can always get behind a good beanie moment. Also, the bright accessories perfectly enhance this casual look taking it to the next level.
Why not pair a silk maxi with your favorite flannel? She proves that you can make ANYTHING appropriate for everyday wear, even the black-tie dress you bought for your cousin’s wedding that is sitting in the back of your closet right now.
I leave you with one of my all-time favorites – Distressed and re-dressed denim with an oversized sweater and a gold, monogrammed chain, just because.
