Wimbledon has long been the ultimate spectator event, with people from all over the world gathering to watch the world’s greatest athletes duke it out on the tennis court. Fashion is incredibly important among Wimbledon spectators, so it’s essential that you look your best as you enjoy your traditional strawberries and cream. Consider stocking your wardrobe up with the following items, which will ensure both fashion and comfort as you enjoy Wimbledon:
TALL Plaited Strap Casual Cami
Casual, but not too casual, this flirty Topshop cami features a figure-flattering scooped neck and unique detailing on the straps. For Wimbledon, you can wear it with a simple pair of jeans or leggings, but don’t be afraid to dress it up with your favorite skirt.
Topshop Copenhagen Sneakers
Wimbledon may be held in the United Kingdom, but it is a thoroughly European event — so feel free to honor Copenhagen with these cool Topshop kicks. Chunky soles and star detailing make these sneakers pop! They are versatile enough to wear with nearly any outfit, but look particularly cool with simple leggings and an oversized tank.
Electric & Rose Sunset Legging
Make a statement during Wimbledon and wear this snazzy pair of leggings from Electric & Rose. These leggings are as stylish as they are comfortable, and what’s more, a unique fold-down waist grants them extra versatility. A variety of color options are available, but if you’re looking to stand out, opt for either Drift Blue or Deepblue Emerald.
Varley Sofia Compression Leggings
It’s tough to combine subtlety and edginess in a single clothing item, but this is easily accomplished with these cool compression leggings. Although this is technically a performance pant for working out, it works well as casual wear and as a chic going out garment. Its natural versatility means it’s perfect for Wimbledon — but you’ll still be wearing it long after your favorite spectator event is over.
LNA Double Cut Tank Top
When dressing for Wimbledon, it’s all about those unexpected details. This cute top has a unique cut-out design that friends and strangers alike will find intriguing. Pair with your favorite bright leggings for a dazzling look.
Looking for a swimsuit for the summer 2016 season, there is no better time than now to buy the must have swimsuit right before the July 4th long weekend. Some things to keep in mind when looking for a swimsuit should be – is it flattering, will you want to wear it for more than one occasion, and will it stand up to being worn while running around in the waves or is it a swimsuit just for sitting by the pool? All of these questions should be part of the buying process since swimsuits are just as much of an investment as a pair of shoes or a new jacket and you want something that will at least last you the whole swimsuit season.
For a great look with a textured finish, the St. Lucia one piece is a top choice. Featuring scrunchy ruffle trim along the legs and edges of the bust, the shape forming swimsuit shows off your best assets in a subtle way. The back cut out with hook closure gives you a stylish look from all angles, and the underwire cups lift in just the right places.
The spandex blend stretches across the body with open sides, giving you more space to move on the beach. The tie closures give you style and function without imposing on your comfort, and the piece serves as a strong base for wicked accessories if you are looking to show out this summer.
The halter top comes with strap ties around the back and neck with scalloped edges. The look is bold and forward, and you can match it with a scalloped bottom or another type of bikini bottom.
Ale by Alessandra Mother Earth Convertible Triangle Top
The bead and charm accents on the convertible top bring just the right amount of attention to the mesh overlay, with lightly padded cups providing just the right amount of support. The straps are stylish, with a halter top look around the neck and back.
Aila Blue Cathedral Bikini Top
Go with a more traditional, full black look with a center tie for just the right amount of style. Halter top straps give you the support that you need to look great on the beach without any of the adornments that other bikini tops usually need. The bottom of the bikini is reinforced to give you more durability just in case you feel like spending your time on the beach in the water and not on the sand.
While you are thinking about buying swimsuits, don’t forget to pick up some activewear so you can stay in shape this swimsuit season.

New Year New You Workout Ideas & More – What are you doing to get in shape after the holidays? Did you eat too many buttermilk and pecan pies this holiday season? How were those peppermint barks and eggnogs? Did you have one more indulgence on New Year’s Day before putting it all away? Every New Year people start off with good intentions and then it all falls away by February 15th. Suddenly it is the long President’s Day weekend and everyone feels like they need to take a long weekend diet break and eat pizza again. Here are a few ideas on what to do to stay on track.
- Workout Daily – Working out daily might sound like a lot of work, but one way to approach working out is to not put too much pressure on yourself. Think of working out as something that you can gradually build upon daily. If you take your dog for a walk in the am before work, make sure the walk is brisk and takes you 20 minutes. Do that same walk after dinner with the dog and you just did 40 minutes worth of working out that day. Put in another 20 minutes after dinner while watching television. Instead of just sitting there and watching television get on the floor and stretch or do some planks and a few burpees. Do 2 minutes of planks and burpees during each commercial break. That will add up to 10 minutes of planks and burpees while you wait for your show to come back on. Taking the stairs or walking to lunch instead of driving is another way to get in some extra steps daily. A little adds up to a lot.
- Don’t Diet – Instead of dieting, make your lifestyle about eating well. In the am drink a full glass of water with lemon first thing in the morning and make egg whites with whole grain whole seed bread like Dave’s Killer Bread .Â This protein and fiber packed start to your day will give you tons of energy and keep you full so you won’t want to indulge in donuts in the break room at work. At lunch, make a conscious decision to eat a salad. Choose to eat a salad with a protein that you like. Eating a saladÂ will add more fiber to your daily diet and you won’t feel exhausted and need a nap by the time lunch is over. Bring some Skinny Pop PopcornÂ in a ziploc bag to work and munch on it as a snack in the afternoon. AÂ healthy snack will keep you satiated so you don’t run to the vending machines for a candy bar. At home, always prepare chopped vegetables and have them ready to cook or make into salads for dinner. Defrost those proteins you want to use for the eveningÂ in the fridge so that a healthy meal is less than 15 minutes away. This way you won’t be starving by dinner time and grabbing something unhealthy while waiting for dinner.
- Fun Activewear – Get some fun workout activewearÂ to add to your wardrobe so you are motivated to get moving before or after work and on the weekends. Fun printed camo leggings and printed tees with fun messages Â and a warmÂ down camo print vestÂ will make you look and feel great and want to get moving. My moto is “when you look great you also feel great.”
- Make Exercise and Eating Healthy Fun – Don’t think about getting in shape and eating better as a chore. Make eating well and being healthy a fun activity. Chop up vegetables in lots of fun colors and display them on a platter. Eating healthy doesn’t mean eating boring foods. Colorful green celery, red peppers, orange carrots make a pretty display when cut up with some hummus. Working out is fun when you take a brisk walk through an area full of stores with pretty window displays. As you have fun doing these activities, you will find yourself getting in shape in the New Year without any of it feeling like a chore.
