Who doesn’t love a man (or woman) in uniform? Since it’s Halloween, I decided to put a military twist on today’s look.

I’m usually in all black, but with fall in full swing, why not branch out to olive? Rompers are my style staple this season. I love how they can be dolled up or dressed down. Did I mention they’re comfy as hell? They are. It’s like wearing pajamas at the club… Well, minus the heels.

Outfit deets are as follows:

Romper: G-Star, purchased at The Well
Shoes: Pour La Victoire, also purchased at The Well
Sunnies: Ray-Ban
Clutch: Vintage
Earrings: Claire’s
Bracelet: NYC Street Vendor
Makeup: Val Harvey

Major thanks to Val for snapping these during our Monday photo adventure!

The only thing I’m missing in this post is my (future) Harley.

Sporting some motorcycle style thanks to vintage finds at Black and Brown. Obsessed with this leather motorcycle jacket, it pairs perfectly with my leather backpack. White shoes? Yes please. They are on-trend this season.

Major thank you to Leco for taking such fantastic photos! One of the most talented men I know. Make sure to scope his site.

Maybe I’ll be a Venice Vixen in 2015?

Republicans wear red and Democrats wear blue, but I’m an Independent so I’ll keep it neutral.

You know those abs I keep Snapchatting? I didn’t get them from eating salads. Yeah, genetics help, but you know what’s really whipped me into shape? CrossFit Santa Monica.

I’ve always been athletic. Dance class, dance team and weights kept me fit. However, something changed my mid-20’s. I still worked out and ate healthy, but long office hours and socializing around drinks took a toll on my tummy. My then-boyfriend signed up for CrossFit and suggested I try it (genius move to get your girlfriend in shape). I completed my first WOD in March and have been hooked since. I’ve joined the “cult.”

WOD, AMRAP, OHS, KBS, T2B and HSPU are part of my lingo. Not only has CrossFit improved my physique, it’s made me stronger. I eat healthier. What I like most is the camaraderie of the gym. Everyone is supportive. No pressure to go RX (I’ll never clean 110, let’s be real). The owners, Carter and Kaj, are Navy Seals, which is especially motivating. I workout at CrossFit Santa Monica to have fun and get fit, all the new friends are an added bonus.

“Bess, what about injuries? Isn’t CrossFit dangerous?”

Life is dangerous. Lift responsibly. CrossFit Santa Monica has knowledgable coaches to teach proper technique.

Major thanks to CrossFit Santa Monica. You’ve given me that extra push to take my fitness to the next level. If you’re looking to join CrossFit, or just want to give it a try, drop in to CrossFit Santa Monica. Your first class is free!
