Oh my goodness, this past winter was the absolute worst! I promised myself that once higher temperatures made their debut again, I would burn my bubble coat and lighten my #Athleisure load in style.

#1 Stay On Track In Style

Can you say head turner? The adidas Originals Firebird Crocodile Print Track Top sold at Six:02 ($69.99) is such a sexy spin on this classic. The all over crocodile print is simply wild and will pair well with your leggings, joggers and even a LBD. The stand up collar screams, “I am too cool for school!” so be sure to pair this light layer with your heaviest hitting shades. Oh, and if you are anything like me and love the ease of being able to step out without a purse, then enjoy the zip up pockets to stash your cash, lip stick and smartphone. 100% polyester never looked so good.

Featured Arm Candy: Tory Burch for Fitbit Fret Double-Wrap Bracelet ($175)

This brand new design just launched in four colors – French Gray/Tory Silver, Light Oak/Rose Gold, Black/Shiny Brass (shown above) and Bark/Aged Gold, so hurry and get your hands (and wrist) around this new sleek way to sport your favorite fitness tracker. Featuring a smooth leather strap, it’s lightweight, versatile and perfectly polished – Fitbit and Tory Burch have done it again.

#2 A Light & Lovely Girly Layer

I am the queen of taking my fit gear from the studio to the street, so when it comes to a light layer that is still soft and feminine, I will wrapping up in the CALIA™ by Carrie Underwood Women’s Effortless Dip Dye Cocoon Sweater ($79).

Sold exclusively at Dick’s Sporting Goods, the popular singer launched a jaw dropping collection this season that you don’t want to miss (the tank shown is the Women’s Striped Double Layer Tank Top ($55). I love the longer length in the back of this super soft, lightweight cashmere blend and the thumb holes add such a beautiful touch. Throw this on after yoga and grab a coffee with your girls in style.

Featured Arm Candy: So Excessive Silver InitialCuff ($40)

Introducing hardware that will be hard not to wear everyday. It’s cuffin’ season and nothing makes a statement better than your initial plated across your wrist. I have a feeling come summer I will end up with the R, A and D from this lovely line. So RAD!

#3 A Bomber That’s The Bomb

The last light layer essential that you absolutely need this spring is a bomb bomber. The Nike Woven Bomber TP Jacket – sold at Six:02 ($124.99) is such a chic chameleon since it’s reversible. Love. This. Solid black on one side and a fancy black and white floral print on the other. You are going to flip out once you realize how many fun ways you can flip your fit gear with this two in one jacket. Like a true bomber, it sits just above the hip and the single black stripe down the arm (on both sides) is such a fun touch.

Featured Arm Candy: Samsung Gear Fit ($149.99)

I had the pleasure to take this beauty for drive earlier this month when I discovered a new “try before you buy” website for fitness trackers – Lumoid. This water resistant, heart rate sensor is not only a fitness tracker it also allows you to get emails, texts and incoming calls right on your wrist. Looking to get a new tracker? Try this one and many more over at Lumoid, I sure did – check out the CBS News fitness tracker fun I had with Lumoid here.
