The weather beautiful on the East Coast this past weekend, and now it’s warming up on the West Coast this week! We are always inspired to get outside and moving, but without looking like a schlumpy mess who rolled out of bed. And then when we pull together something that is halfway decent, we don’t want to spend a small fortune. Yes, investment pieces are key (see fabulous LuluLemon jacket above), but you can find chic basics for wallet-happy prices.

This post was mainly dreamed up from our obsession with Urban Outfitter’s new venture, Without Walls. Focusing on styles and gear for fitness, surf, and trail, Without Walls makes a stylish, active wardrobe attainable. They also introduce products from smaller companies that are making waves (yes, literally) in the industry! We currently have our eyes on Calavera swimwear, Onzie activewear, and Salt Gypsy surf leggings. There’s a lot to love on the Without Walls site, and you can find their products carried in select Urban Outfitters stores, too. We call that win-win.

Now, for the Get Movin’ part. If you’re looking to add some variety into your weekly workout, or just looking to get out there in general, we seeked out some great spots in both VA and CA for SUP Boarding, Yoga Classes, and Nature Hikes. Plus, you need a place to show off your new workout gear – right?

Warby Mine: Warby Parker Spring ’14 Collection

Fixed Warby Mine

Happy Valentine’s Day!

We’re celebrating on the blog today by combining the holiday of love with a Friday Find. When I went to visit Sarah for her graduation in Richmond, one of the first places we visited was NeedSupply (our favorite local shop). While scouring for our usual trendy finds, we noticed a new wall of eyeglasses by the front of the store. And not just your normal run-of-the-mill glasses. They were cool, edgy, fun, and classic all rolled into one. They were all made by one brand – Warby Parker. 

Warby Parker isn’t just a brand that  makes great eyewear; they are a company looking to change the world one pair of glasses at a time. For every pair purchased, Warby Parker provides a pair of glasses to someone in need. Talk about spreading the love!

Sadly, we both have less-than-perfect eyesight, and we have been in the market for new eyewear for what feels like eons. We could never find the right pair that married affordability with fashion sensibility. Warby Parker changed the whole game for us. Not only are they always on-trend with colors and silhouettes, but most pairs run under $100(!).

And their latest collection is no exception. Quoted as being “for every frame of mind”, the Warby Parker Spring 2014 collection is full of styles that fits any style or personality. Whether it’s a punch of color, like the Walker Canton Blue, or a modernized classic, like the Marcel in Plum Marblewood, these frames are perfect for whoever you want to be today.

The best part is, you don’t even have to go to a Warby Parker showroom to try these babies on. You can digitally try the frames on yourself, or should we say selfies. Then, you can choose your top five favorites to be shipped directly to you, for FREE, to make your final selections. And you only pay for what you keep (with FREE returns, too)!

Sarah and I had so much fun digitally trying out our future frames, and here are some of our favorites.
