stylish and sporty

how you doing this lovely sunday? :) apart from the rain it's been quite a nice day of jamming and general lazing around :P it feels so strange not having anything to revise for or any work to do, but today i spoke to my lovely friend kayleigh about college as she goes to the one i'll be going to which was really helpful! i also decided that my top wants for this month are a pair of seamed tights, denim acid wash shorts from the vintage shop and a top/tee that's opaque at the front and transparent on the back. i saw one on sonya in neighbours and it was gorgeous. i want one of those :P
so today as you probably noticed, apart from to go running in the rain with philippine, i didn't go out so i didn't have an outfit to post you, but my run made me think about what i could post about and i thought about athletes and sportswomen that are stylish. it was really hard to find any because that's not what they're known for but i found a few sports related things i thought i'd share with you :) another picture heavy post so i hope you enjoy.
1. anna kournikova 
i found this stunning photo of anna in this gorgeous lbd with her diamond encrusted watch and ring. not bad for a tennis player ;)
i love this outfit so much apart from the heels! the silk shirt is gorgeous with the black though and this is the first time i've seen a "bra through shirt" looking sophisticated. i'd love to own this outfit! here's a polyvore i created in the style of this outfit -
the details of each item is on the right. you can see i changed the shoes for a more.. gorgeous pair of louboutins! for more info - click my polyvore tab to the left of this post :)
2. serena williams
another tennis player, here at the glamour awards wearing a lovely pamela rolands dress. she's super-muscly isn't she! but i think this dress looks great on her because it's so light and feminine that it emphasises her curves and makes her look softer :)
mary j blige, serena williams and alicia keys here all wearing gucci. this dress is okay, but i think that serena and alicia are both suffering from "i forgot to put a bra on" syndrome. but i like the sparkliness of serena's dress. i don't particularly like any of their shoes either..hmm. what do you think?
3. lee hyori
this is a korean r&b singer and was featured on the cover of vogue korea in may 2010. so she's not a sportswoman perhaps but the photos are centred around basketball and they're stunning. 
this skirt is slightly bridal but i absolutely love everything about this photo!
looks like a wedding dress but also looks awesome with that cardigan style thing. 
i love this one again. slightly less than the other two but apart from that i like this too :)
4. nike is one of the leading sports brands in the world and i stole these photos off lookbook but i love how these cool people have styled nike clothing-

1. i love the scarf and the nike trainers just go completely with the outfit.
2. i love these trainers, but the hat sealed the deal for me :P
1. this girl looks really great and you would have thought some floral heels or flats would go but the grey socks and dunks look perfect.
2. i love the photography here, i love acid wash jeans, i love classic nike's and his top is pretty cool too so this outfit is just a winner!
last but not least, here are a few photos i've taken in the last few days that i thought i'd share with you :)
hannah's gorgeous little puppy, her name's boo and she's a miniature schnauzer. i want her so much :P
taken on my phone so bad quality. but i won essex championships u17 triple jump yesterday. 
decisions decisions! i went for cosmo in the end but it wasn't that good so i'm gonna go and buy glamour tomorrow :P
haha spotted this while out with my gorgeous friend max (who was wearing a lovely royal blue ben sherman shirt and these fab brown shoes) near aldgate the other day. it was behind a bench - we decided that they were the produce of a good night out. 
lastly, this was a photo of a "baguette hot dog" in a chip shop... i don't know who's clever idea this was but there's something not quite right about it.. haha.
so quite an array of things this evening! hope you have a lovely week and enjoyed reading today :) ronan xxx


  1. Nice pics, the shots of the Korean singer are very interesting!

  2. I love the number 3 :))))
    She looks pretty! And the baguette ... :D hahaha!

  3. Amazing pictures, Ronan! Anna Kournikova is such a beautiful woman!
    Thank you for your comment, dear! You're such a sweetheart!


  4. Oh my! There is so much to comment about!!!! Okay first off, I can't get over how strong serena williams is! I would not get in her way. The basketball shoot looks amazing! I love how acid washed jeans look on other people;however I have never tried them. Lastly, what is up with that hot dog? Subliminal message? Well, I guess sex sells ;)

  5. Wow! Who knew sports players could clean up nicely?! Anna looks so stunning. I really want to re-create her last look! I need to find a good pencil skirt first!

    I love the Nike's too! If only I could pull it off ;)

    Thank you for your lovely comment, it really made my day to know at least one person misses my posts! *tear* haha!!

  9. I love the basketball shoot pics! The only thing that I dislike about some sports women is their muscley arms like Serenas but this is just my opinion. Hope you have a wondeful day.
