From the Barre to the Boulevard: Kim Edition



Kim_Gear_1_adj


We're closing out another amazing month, with another amazing "It-Girl". Kim rocked October from the bike to the barre. When she hit the streets in these styles though, she was definitely turning heads! It was all about creating petite-friendly looks for Kim's small frame while also tapping into the hottest Fall trends.

Even if your vision isn't 20/20 you would be remiss not to notice that plaids and checks are the season's print du jour. Adding one into your wardrobe feels completely festive and gives your autumn attire something special. However, when you are on the smaller side, if these prints are on the wrong cut of fabric, they can look overwhelming or even dowdy. Sinful if you ask me, especially for how hard this hot mommy of two works to keep her physique svelte and toned.

I found her the perfect buffalo check blanket sweater {by Bar III via Macy's} that fits in all the right places while still being a bit dramatic. The sleeves are the key factor here to keeping her proportion in check {no pun intended} and allowing this piece to be flouncy at the hem.

This sweater was so versatile adding so much to a jeans, tee, and knee-high boots ensemble for day and perfectly framing a wine hued mini-dress for night. Isn't that what we all want from our wardrobe, pieces that do double duty just like this fab barre-tender ;)

Our October #LBItGirl, Kim!



On tap this month is our October #LBItGirl, Kim!

Kim-2_adj_web

 

Was there an interesting path that led you to teaching at Barre? 
I was a displaced fitness instructor from Philadelphia looking for an amazing workout upon moving to Hoboken. I immediately found Barre/Wheel at Local Barre. It was all over after taking my first class ;).

Health enthusiast? Tell us about your diet...vegan? raw? raw til 4? recipes? favorite seasonal dish or smoothie?
I am a huge believer in “everything in moderation”. I practice this and have my private clients practice it as well. If you go overboard, don’t think of your day/diet/otherwise as “wasted” or “lost” - you can right your ship whenever you decide to get back on track! For smoothies: water//kale//protein powder//apple//orange//banana//bee pollen//flax seed//chia seeds. For salads: arugula//watermelon//grape tomatoes//red onion//feta cheese//white balsamic vinegrette homemade dressing.

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Janelle Edition


IMG_7386_adj_web


Here comes the new season and with it all the styles we love! If you've been working hard at the barre and let's be real if you've taken a class taught by "It Girl" Janelle, then you're definitely working hard. Her tone has a sly way of making you think what you're about to do isn't that hard and then 30 seconds later you feel the burn. Tricky, tricky! But when you emerge with a perky booty and feel toned all over, who can complain? Your leather pants will be applauding you for your efforts. If you don't have a pair, get on it. They are a great alternative to jeans and hug in all the right places while adding a subtle edginess to all you pair them with.

I styled Janelle in the bottom of the season alongside a color combination that screams autumn. Olive + Aubergine {or really any family member on the red wine scale} are colors we don't see too much in the summer and styling them together for fall really makes a refreshing impact. This cardigan is fun with it's chunky knit and textured fringe. You can throw it over tons of tanks, dresses or even a leather croptop for fun ;) Booties with a nice, low, thick heel are essential. They tend to be more comfortable and can work with so many items in your wardrobe. If you already have a great neutral pair in your repertoire, I advise you to go with an eye-catching color like these by Ted Baker. You would be surprised how many looks they can go with!

Finally, finish things off with a great accessory that literally spells it out for you. This cheeky little clutch {by Kate Spade! Yes, Kate Spade finally made it's way to Hoboken!} can go with leather pants to a glam evening look, there are so many styling possibilities.

All these items are from neighborhood store Two Heathers! You can find their boutique at 331 Washington Street.
