Brightest Runner Around

Gel Kayano 21 - Before our first run together.

After about 2 runs, seriously didn't need any breaking in.

I seriously felt like the baddest runner ever with my new Asics. I've owned plenty of running sneakers but they were never so bright. When I picked them in this color, it was a little bit weird but everyone knows that the brighter the better when it comes to running sneakers. Boy was I right, everyone kept stopping me in Mexico to ask me what kind of shoes they were, there was no filter needed to show the color and they almost even glowed in the dark. A complete review will be coming next week but one thing for sure is that everyone needs a pair of these Asics Gel Kayano 21.
Not only are they beautiful but also the softest running shoes to run in with great support.

Whats' your favorite color of shoes?
Have you owned a bright color like the ones shown above?

Halfway home, waiting for bus in Puebla to go to the airport to take our flight back home to NYC.

We spent days with my Grandma, days of walking in the campo and days of horse riding. My heart was broken when it was time to leave Mexico but now i am counting down the days till next Summer. Stay tuned to lots of exciting post from Mexico in the meantime keep your eyes opened to posts coming up this keep including a giveaway and some other surprises.

Hope your Summer has been a good one.

You can never go wrong with a colored pair of classic jeans, it will add that special touch and pop to any top.

A nice patterned maxi dress paired with a nice pair of boots. Definitely perfect for nice stroll through Central Park.

Legging days are coming and that means finding the perfect top to go with them. This one is perfect, casual yet perfect for meeting with blogger friends.

What's your idea of a laid back look?

#ShoeBuyDotCom Does It Again

Yay! It's here. Shoe Box knows exactly how I would feel once my new trainers arrived.

Being in Mexico and on vacation doesn't mean no running. So excited to take these babies for a run. Especially through the beautiful country side of Mexico and the killer hills :)
Can't wait to get back and let you know how they felt. I can tell you already that they are so cute and super light weight.

I was sent these sneakers for review purposes from Shoe Buy.
