J.Crew x New Balance


As you may have gathered via. Twitter, i’m in love with New Balance.

The fratty 540’s were my high school sneaks. My first ever running shorts were New Balance. Not to mention they STILL get the most wear to the gym -for three years now. That says a lot about the brand’s longevity. 

J. Crew released a fitness line with NB -and I lit-uh-rally swooned (slight exaggeration, but let’s digress). Naturally, I grabbed the Mac and clicked/zoomed/scrolled to my heart’s desire.

Summer is here and the heat is on. It’s fate. Perhaps a little workout splurge to treat myself? I think yes!

Without a doubt, J. Crew x NB cultivates a quirky intervention. Something the fitness market doesn’t currently afford. Companies are so alike these days to the point where I could not care less what brand i’m wearing. As long as it wicks sweat, i’m sold.

This collection, however, plays subtle prints (stripes) and pops of cute color (bright orange and olive green) to create a stylish streak. I’m over here thinking: “this isn’t your average workout gear.”

 Just the right amount of chic and dapper, you know? Where impractical meets practical. Also, can we talk about those olive green shorts? SOOOO PRETTY.
