Hey loves! I just came home from a super busy day at work, many many meetings, a lovely wine tasting afterwards, and last but not least I went to the girls-only adidas Event where Lena Gercke (German model) stood tall for selfies all evening long. In all honestly, I’ve never been the person to love sports since I was a kid and thus it wasn’t a routine at all before – unlike Lena, whom has always been a fitness-geek since she was young. Nevertheless, I try incorporating sports into my weekly calendar as often as possible. I admit it, I often enough need to kick my own ass when it comes to actually doing something – and of course, I don’t manage it daily, I do have days where I feel down and won’t do anything, I do have days where I overeat and feel even worse. I am normal. Yet, I notice I start missing it on the days I don’t do it at all – it allows me to calm down, get away from the busy daily-life and hey – it’s healthy. So when I got the chance to attend the adidas event tonight I was quite excited to have a look at the newest clothes and what pieces the brand presented tonight. Show-stealer was surely the PureBoost X sneacker, which, Lena actually wore herself. Because let’s be honest, working-out becomes so much more fun with a new set of sneakers or a whole new outfit. The event was hosted at Jelmoli here in Zurich, where you can also buy the shoes online – though, Lena wore the new black & salmon colored version (not online yet). Personally, I had an eye on the new superstar editions – I love the classic black and white sneaker, already own a pair (though really need a fresh, clean one!), have the fully gold ones, the black one, and now have an eye one the black ones with a reptile skin touch to it and the grey ones. What are your thoughts, another black (I know my closet could use more color) one or a new color? Decisions, decisions!
On another note, I love the “new” trend of wearing sports wear all day long. I wrote “new” because, really, it’s not new at all. We see celebrities running around in sports clothes since so long, wearing sneakers daily has become a standard and they even work instead of heels paired with a dress (and leather jacket, whilst we’re at it). However, it seems that although this so-called trend is nothing new, it always takes time to arrive in Europe (unless coming from within, of course). I often feel as if once certain trends have been defined in the US, they are most likely to jump over to London first, and, once it’s been generally accepted to work out (or look good, in this regard), it finally hits all other countries.
Now, time to get ready for bed – I really need a few more hours tonight! xo
