Sweat It Out On 12.12.12

It's been five long days since I've blogged last. I went to Florida over the weekend to attend a baby shower of one of my good friends from college, Brittney! It was a nice breath of fresh air to be able to travel, enjoy new scenery, and reminisce with an old friend. But as you can see, I haven't quite gotten caught up on my blogging since the new week has begun. In honor of December 12, 2012 (12.12.12), a day which we won't witness for another 100 years, I had to do a blog post to leave my stamp on this monumental day.

Today's post is called "Sweat It Out (On 12.12.12)." I know you may be wondering "why"? Are we going to discuss exercising tips? Nope! We are going to tackle #dope sweatshirts that I've spotted over the course of the last few weeks. As I've stated before, sometimes I don't feel like dressing up in heels and a dress. So what better way to showcase your swag than with a sweatshirt! Yep, you read that right. I said a sweatshirt. This is not your average primary color sweatshirt that your mom bought you when you were 12. Sweatshirts have gotten an upgrade adding leather accents, fur trim, and words to inspire ya.

These sweatshirts offer words (of wisdom). Whether it be "Fresh!" "Fly!" or "Work, Party, Repeat!"

This "Fly" Sweatshirt is from Chargrel's Couture (

This "Work, Play, and Repeat" sweatshirt is from Gifted Apparel NYC

These sweatshirts have leather details which upgrade the overall lax look. You can get leather detailing on the bodice or the sleeves. Which ever you choose, I'm sure you will be pleased :)

When I first saw this sweatshirt, it immediately went on my "got - to - have - it" list!!! I love that they take a classic sweatshirt and add an unexpected detail of fur on the sleeves. 

This furry sleeved sweatshirt is from Dear Envy (

This sweatshirt takes sheer details to add a softer, romantic upgrade.

This gorgeous sheer sweatshirt is from Asos (

This is one of my favorite sweatshirts that I've spotted over the net. It is custom made by Chargrel's Couture. I am a sucker for ruffles so to combine ruffles and comfort gets an A+ in my book!

You may be saying, these sweatshirts are pretty dope, but how to I style them? I'm glad you asked! I know the obvious choice would logically be to pair them with sweatpants. But you don't have to be so matchy, matchy just because you are wearing a sweatshirt. You can pair sweatshirts with leggings, army fatigue pants, denim shorts (with tights), jeans or even skirts. For footwear you can wear sneakers, boots, and even dress it up with pumps. It really depends on your mood, how you want to style it. There is no wrong answer. Play around with it and have some fun.

Happy Hump Day! Enjoy your 12. 12. 12
