Happy Friday everyone – Kendra here! I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I go to the gym, I’m inclined to throw on a pair of studs, or even a delicate necklace. Just knowing that I’ll have a bit of sparkle on helps me worry less about getting my hair sweaty and my make-up runny. From studs to dainty bracelets, we have oodles of jewels that are gym-appropriate, and will add just the right amount of subtle pizzaz to your fitness attire. Our classic Carly Studs, which come in a kaleidoscope of fun colors, and our new Bessie Necklace top some of my favorite gems for the gym.
And speaking of gems, check out some of my top picks for activewear. Whether doing yoga or running at your nearby park, having comfortable and breathable clothing is a must and there are so many options that are both chic and comfortable. Nike is my favorite brand for women’s activewear, and I love these look-at-me coral tennis shoes that are perfect for runs around the neighborhood when being noticed is essential for safety. This bright orange Adidas jacket by Stella McCartney is perfect for a run on a chilly night and can double up as a casual everyday jacket. H&M also has an activewear line that is affordable and very cute.

Still a naysayer regarding jewelry at the gym? Take a hint from the pros! The Opening Ceremonies for the 2012 Olympics in London is today and I’m feeling inspired by some of the leading team USA ladies. From the Williams’ sisters, to the fierce Lolo Jones, all have been caught rocking jewelry while in action. Lolo has a signature necklace that she always dons and the Williams sisters have been known to rock everything from hoops to bracelets to compliment their tennis attire. The talented sisters even wore jewelry when they won this year’s Wimbledon – can you say good luck charm? If your goal is to workout like an athlete this Olympic season, you might as well dress like them too!
