Vacation looks+ Look Sleek

Nice clothes by Yigal Azrouël perfect for a vacation plus my sleek body workout.

The Workout

Seated Bicycle

Sit tall with legs extended, feet flexed, and hands lightly touching either side of your head, elbows out. Lift your legs, lean back slightly so you’re balancing on your tailbone, and draw your right knee in as you rotate your upper body toward it.

Hold for 2 counts, then switch legs (and twist in the opposite direction) to complete 1 rep. 

Do 15 reps.

Wide Dumbbell Pull

Stand with feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent, and hold a 10- to 15-pound dumbbell in each hand. Lean over from hips until back is almost parallel to ground. Extend arms down in front of knees or shins, palms facing legs.

Draw weights up, bringing elbows out to the sides and slightly back. Hold for 2 counts, then lower weights; repeat. 

Do 15 reps.


Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, and bring hands in front of your chest. Pull right knee up and across your body toward left hand.

Quickly switch legs, bringing left knee up , to complete 1 rep. Do 15 reps, hopping back and forth as quickly as possible. Keep your hips and shoulders squared forward the entire time.

Dumbbell Press 

Lie faceup with knees bent and feet on the ground and hold a 10- to 15-pound dumbbell in each hand slightly above chest, elbows bent out to the sides and palms facing forward.

Extend arms over chest, turning palms to face head and tapping ends of weights together. Reverse motion to return to starting position and repeat. Do 15 reps.

Front Squat

Stand with feet hip-width apart and hold a 10- to 15-pound dumbbell in each hand at chin height in front of you, elbows bent and palms facing you.

Slowly squat, sitting back into your heels. Hold for 2 counts, then rise up and repeat.

Do 15 reps.

Kneeling Concentration Curl

Holding a 10- to 15-pound dumbbell in left hand, squat low with left foot in front of right; lower right knee to ground, heel raised. Extend left arm against inside of left leg, palm facing right; place right hand on right thigh.

Keeping upper arm still and against your leg, slowly lift dumbbell toward your shoulder. Lower to starting position and repeat. Do 15 reps; switch sides to complete set.


Hold a 5- to 8-pound dumbbell in right hand and get in plank position with feet slightly wider than hips

Keeping shoulders and hips squared to the ground, raise right arm out to the side to shoulder height, palm facing down. Lower arm, place weight on the ground under your chin, then repeat with left hand to complete 1 rep. Do 15 reps.


Lie faceup with legs extended and hands on either side of your head. Raise head a few inches.

Life legs off ground, then slowly sit up, drawing knees to your elbows directly over hips. Hold for 2 counts, feet off the ground, then slowly lower torso and extend legs (but keep head and feet slightly off the ground). Do 30 reps.

Happy Weekend+ Bikinis+ Abs Workout

I love these "look-at-me" bikinis and cover-ups by Melissa Odabash. I'm including a simple yet effective abs workout so you'll look killer for bikini season.

The Workout:

How it works Do 2 or 3 sets of each move three times a week. Rest for no more than 30 seconds between sets.

You'll need

A set of 3- to 5-pound weights, a Bosu balance trainer, and a mat (optional).

Triple-Delt Duty

Hold a dumbbell in each hand out to the sides at shoulder level. Circle arms forward 15 times, then back 15 times. Next, bend elbows 90 degrees. Rotate forearms down so they’re parallel to the floor, then back up. Do 15 reps.
Finally, bring elbows together in front of you, then back out. Do 15 reps.

Plank Progression

Get in plank position on forearms on the round side of a Bosu. (If you don't have a Bosu use a yoga mat or towel)
Hold for 30 seconds, then turn to the left and balance on right forearm, feet staggered and left arm up. Hold for 30 seconds, return to center, and switch sides to complete series. Repeat entire series once.

Standing Crunch

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand in front of your chest, elbows bent and palms facing each other.
Pull your abs in and lean forward and to the right, using the same motion as you would when doing a regular crunch. Repeat to the other side to complete 1 rep. Do 15 to 25 reps.


Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, then squat and put hands on floor in front of feet. Hop feet back, then forward again.
Jump up, catching air and raising hands overhead. Continue for 1 minute. (Add a push-up while you're in plank pose for more of a challenge.)

Get to work

I really like the clean look of this Jussara Lee's suit, the straight and skinny cut  makes it feminine.

Ok go!

My picks from the Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2011 collection. I am not sure I like the single feather in the hair...

Fashion Greed

Isabel Marant's Spring 2011 collection is just fab, everything is so wearable and perfect for summer. I know it's mean to talk about other people's bodies but some of these models look way to skinny to me.

Hip Flower

Gary Graham's Spring 2011 collection has lots of flower prints but the cuts of the clothes make them modern and timeless.
