Fall Beach Day Essentials

This past week has been brisk and a bit windy, and I am loving every second of it. The overcast skies soften the city, giving it that crisp but cozy holiday feeling, allowing me to finally snuggle up in my favorite jackets and blanket scarves. I spent the day hiking out to Ocean Beach on Saturday morning, enjoying the sounds of the ocean and the crisp air along the trails of Lands End down to the beach.

I am currently obsessed with Target’s activewear line C9 by Champion, as their outerwear this season is gorgeous on top of being functional. I picked up their fleece jacket that was somewhat similiar to my Patagonia Better Sweater, and I must say the comparison is completely on point.

Not only is it longer (tall girl problems!) in the body, the collar is wider, which helps when it’s windy. It’s a less boxy fit, and makes me feel feminine when I am bulked up in warm layers.

One of my favorite tank styles is the Fly-By Tank by Under Armour. Aside from it’s flattering fit, I love that the back is mesh which allows for quick sweat wicking, and overall comfort. It comes in just about every color out there, so there’s bound to be one to match any outfit you’ve got. Thanks to my friend Shauna for the recommendation!

I found these sandals on mega clearance at Target, and I must say they are amazingly comfortable and still fashionable. They’re exactly what I need to take my beach day back into the real world for either dining out or shopping. Goodbye rubber flip flops!

The Mesh Factor: Studio to Street, Instantly.

I am loving the mesh trends in active wear this season. It gives a chic approach to hitting the gym, and also speeding to brunch or errands shortly after. Yep, chic activewear makes me way more productive. At least that’s how I rationalize it, anyway!

I am currently OBSESSED with the latest from Lululemon, the Hot to Street Pant, the most amazing way to transition your sweat sesh to daily life. It’s not for the faint of heart though, as the mesh amount almost outweighs the amount of solid fabric, in the most flattering way possible though!

I wore them to work at Barry’s Bootcamp, and they were incredibly comfortable, breathable, and held up perfectly, given the sweaty mess I usually am in the studio there. I had a quick transition to brunch with a friend after, and was able to totally hide the fact that I just got destroyed by an hour of killer Barry’s Full Body with Shauna!
