:: fall + fashion + fitness ::

It's finally starting to feel like fall. And it's so bittersweet. Autumn is truly my favorite, but it's followed by that cruel mistress we call winter. But she's still far off in the distance, and I'm hoping to keep it that way for as long as possible. I could do this year round:

So in the meantime, while there's still some glorious outdoor activities to be had, I'm enjoying the crisp air and my new outfit from the City Sports CS line. I'm so impressed that they somehow sensed that purple is my favorite color.

Moving forward, I'll wear this trio running, but couldn't resist a little canoe trip for their debut.

First up is the City Sports Paramount tight ($54) in Charcoal. There are tons of great features on it, including a tagless label (so simple, but SO annoying otherwise), a reflective logo and side seam and a great length that hits me just above the ankle (I'm 5'10").

Here's a close up of a few of the other extras:


That's a zippered pocked for an ID, or your iPod, as well as a drawstring waist and an internal pocket for a key. Or an Advil (these knees are getting up there).

The City Sports See Me Go 1/4 Zip Up in Royal ($55) is the perfect match, with thumb holes (love) and moisture wicking fabric. And it's loose enough on my torso that I don't have to keep tugging it down. Which is my number one complaint with some other popular zip ups (that cost double this one, at least). Here's a back view, with some water spots...things got dicey out there:

And finally, the City Sports Core Long Sleeve Crew, also in Royal ($25)...the perfect layering piece:

There's so much time left to be outside! Summer may be over but fall sports and fall fashion are just beginning...

  1. I love the fact those pants have two pocket. Normal I have to take a running belt. That way I have everything I need.

  2. Those look awesome and I love the baby pockets!

  3. Your new active wear looks great.

    I am so excited about fall. It will forever be my favorite time of the year.
