Rebel with a Cause


Spring has sprung and I'm so excited that all the snow is finally gone from NYC. In keeping with one of my New Year's resolutions to get healthier I decided it was time head to the City to try a new workout class. Because I'm a practical girl and didn't want to drag gym clothing with me, I embraced the athleisure trend and hit the streets in my workout gear. I was super excited to wear my new Puma Rebel Mid Sneakers that I just picked up at Famous Footwear. They're the perfect combo of street and chic, and I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable they are.




These Pumas are now on sale for $64.99 at Famous Footwear and they come in hot pink too! I was so tempted, but the black and white styling called to me. The Rebel is lightweight and don't even get me started about the cushion-y insole. I was on my feet all day and these wore like a dream.





From head to toe:
  • Sunglasses: Ray Ban, Century 21, $8, RV $145 - back when they had 90% off!
  • Coat: Zara, $29.99 from $199.99
  • Workout wear: all BooHoo Fit, gifted
  • Bracelet: Balenciaga, sample sale, $99
  • Backpack: Rebecca Minkoff, sample sale, $10 (RV about $200)
  • Sneakers: Puma Rebel Mid Sneakers, Famous Footwear, gifted (RV $69.99)






Thank you Belle @littlefashionstylist for taking my pics! We met up that day to hit the SJP sample sale which was right around the corner from the LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana by 55th & 6th. Little known fact - he hadn't expected it to be so popular so he didn't copyright his work. So if you think it made him rich and famous you'd be wrong.

After a little shopping (didn't get anything) & shooting we headed downtown to grab a bite and by the time I got to the gym I missed my yoga class LOL. Some people might think that spending the day on your feet running around the City is enough of a workout, but when you've over 40 your metabolism slows down - and you really have to make a effort to stay fit. I'm still figuring things out but I'm proud that I'm taking steps to get there. Literally :)

Thank you to Famous Footwear for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Next week is Passover so I'm going be taking a little break from shopping and social media. Because you know I won't leave you high and dry, let's talk sample sales for a minute. Tomorrow is the first day of Eddie Borgo (deets mentioned here) that I'm probably going to skip after they raised prices at their last sale. But later this month we have Marc Jacobs which was epic last time, Edie Parker, & Marissa Webb. I'll get you all the details as they come a little closer.

    1. OMG they are! I've been dying for a new pair of kicks and these are amazing :)

  2. I love the black from head to toe look on you! That coat is so cool. I feel like I need a good long parka style coat like this, our winters are very mild, so light layers are good most of the time.
    Also, love that you went with the black sneaker over the pink, it's chic!

    1. I'm a huge pink girl but I'd have to agree that the black and white is so chic. And yes - I didn't expect to love this parka so much but I think I'm going to be living in it. It's so lightweight and such a great layer!

  4. Okay, I can't think of a better way to have styled those sneakers. You can really never go wrong with black or white. Your photographer did an amazing job capturing this look. Definitely one of my favorites from you!

  6. OMG, Marc Jacobs sample sale! Sound so good. Cant wait to see what you will pick up. I love your sneakers, they look comfy and very unique compare to other boring sneakers. I think you look amazing in your age and your husband should be very proud for what you do and how you do!

  8. I love your look! I especially love your jacket! I so need some new shoes for working out and these seem so perfect! Mine are really heavy and I purchased them when I was pregnant (like really pregnant) and shoe shopping was not my idea of fun so I just picked one and left! Definitely love that these are light weight! Also, I didn't know that about this sculpture! I love learning little facts like that! Have a beautiful week celebrating passover!

  9. I've been totally rocking that altheisure look too! It's just so comfortable and effortless and then I don't have to change into workout clothes because I'm already wearing them. And the sneakers sound like such a steal! I can't wait to be able to start working out again and actually be wearing work out clothes for a reason :) haha

  11. Amazing look! Totally comfy, casual and chic look at the same time. Love monochromatic, because it's figure flattering. Love the nice and fun touch of color with your bag. Loved it!

  16. Michelle, I am totally in love with your Puma Sneakers. They look unbelievably cool and I love their sleek design. I totally need to find the hot pink ones, they would be perfect for me. You are looking seriously chic, I love your workout gear. Adding that gorgeous Balenciaga bracelet was the perfect touch, I can't believe you bought it for $99. This is the perfect fashionista look for the gym.

    Enjoy the beautiful weather babe :).

  19. I can't believe you ran around all day in those sneakers and were still comfortable- now that says something when hitting the NYC's concrete all day! The black and white design is so sleek, and at just $65, those sneakers are a complete steal. Definitely checking out Famous Footwears after this :D I'm sorry to hear you missed your yoga class, but sounds like it was an amazing day nonetheless. And with great company to boot! :) Thanks for sharing such awesome sneakers with us! P.s. loved the fun fact about the LOVE sign too- what a shame! But I hope the happiness of so many would be payment enough! :)

  23. Wow, I did not know that the LOVE sculpture was not copy righted, what a shame, he would be so rich right about now. Great photos, I love the sporty look but also a little edgy with the metallic backpack and those futuristic kicks. I think everyone need to do a little bit more walking for a small attempt to stay active and fit. We drive way too much here in the states. Great job for you to continuously trying.

  25. Always wearing the super cute affordable outfit. So happy the snow is gone for New York as well. We all need a little sunshine and warmth in our lives. Those sneakers are good for all that city walking and busy city lifestyle. Black is the perfect color to, they will go with everything.

  26. Loving the black on black layered look! I can feel you about not wanting to change clothes when going to the gym! I'd feel lazy about that as well. As for those Puma kicks, they look so good! Love the luxe details on them. x
