When I got the news that I would be heading to Dallas and Chicago to talk about fitness fashion for Lady Foot Locker, I immediately freaked out. Ok, I immediately said “YES!” and then I freaked out. What do I know about fashion?! I’m still rocking jelly bracelets and DIY cropped tees. But if you want success/experiences/joy, you HAVE to show up for life. Just keep SHOWING UP and big things will happen.
Baby Summer & Justin tagged along. I couldn’t do any of this without him.
I’m going to warn you now that this is going to be an INTENSELY photo-heavy post. How could I possibly write about a weekend dedicated to fashion without tons of pics? I was also completely in love with my hotel, so I need to throw in at least a couple pics of my schmancy digs.
Baby Summer saw the room and screamed “HOLLA!!”
My favorite part of the stay was the cookie delivery welcome…
… and the surprise delivery of #FashionablyFit Lady Foot Locker gear!
Lady Foot Locker wants to show us that we can Go Anywhere – Look Good Everywhere. That message is at the core of their newly re-vamped style. Why can’t we look just as amazing at the gym as we do everywhere else? And for me, a girl who LIVES in fitness apparel, rocking my “bummy swag” (as Adrienne Bailon describes it) everywhere I go is NOT an option.
Like I said, I was nervous about talking fashion, but as soon as I hooked up with the other bloggers at breakfast on the morning of the event, I was completely at ease. Lady Foot Locker brought in Ashley from PursuitofShoes.com, Hallie from CoralsandCognacs.com and my girl Bianca from MizzFit.com to lend their expertise in the world of fashion. Adrienne Bailon joined us after breakfast for some pre-show girl-talk. We got INTO IT about working out, diet, makeup, fashion… she was too much fun. All I could think about was how my daughter would be dying if she knew I was hanging out with a Cheetah Girl without her.
It was so exciting to meet them and hear their perspectives on fashion. The most refreshing part was hearing that while it’s definitely about the fashion, it’s even more about our personal style. We all got hot looks to wear for the event, but they were all SO DIFFERENT. Lady Foot Locker wanted us to talk about OUR fitness STYLE, not just the latest trends. So let’s see the clothes!!

It’s all about the NEON right now (thank you fashion gods!!)

Adrienne with the models – bright & BEAUTIFUL!
We’ll be in Chicago next weekend at the North Riverside Park Mall showing off MORE fashion and WORKING OUT!! I’m leading two classes, and Adrienne will be joining us for one of them. She’s super-dedicated to working on her fitness, so I’m making a special core-strength class JUST FOR HER. I did some planking in the airport to encourage you all to work on your core power, and I want to hear YOUR favorite core moves in the comments below.

Before I wrap this, I have a few more of my favorite moments to share. It took so many amazing people to make this happen, so I just want to send a huge THANK YOU to all of the wonderful boys & girls from Glam and Lady Foot Locker for having me out. I also want to thank Leianna, a super-cute BexLifer from Austin who made the long drive to meet me.
Glam ladies + bloggers = fitness fashion amazingness
