New Ms Fit Feature: Fashion Blogger, Helen Berkun
One of my favorite fashion bloggers on the scene is Helen Berkun. She was introduced to me by one of my dear friends and I've been hooked ever since. A mama of three living in Chicago, she caught my attention by her stunning photography, her out-of-the-box styling and her ability to somehow live in a world with 36-hour days... I'm truly amazed by her endless talent and her balance between work and family life, and alas, could not wait to feature her and her impeccable style.
What is keeping you busy these days?
Oh gosh… life has been crazy, and amazing! I just had my third child three months ago and it’s been a ride. Between balancing three kids, my career (I’m back to work), a new business venture with a long time friend, home, friends and the hubbs, I’d say I’m pretty busy. I’m one of those people that doesn’t know how to chill. I love being busy!
What are you loving in fitness and fashion now?
I love working out. I’m basically a gym/yoga rat. I went back to CorePower yoga two weeks after giving birth, went into labor on the treadmill with my first son and worked out hard core through most of my pregnancies with exception to my last. I had a few complications and was on modified bed rest for the last four months and not being able to work out literally killed me. I’d drive by my studio and almost weep… So now that I’m back, I’m so ecstatic. Of course I had to get me some new swag.
What are some your totally-gotta-have-them trends right now?
I'm currently obsessed with Queen B's LEMONADE and her collab with Sir Philip Green for IVY PARK. With all these affordable pieces, it's hard not to look chic while working out! Check it out here...
So I’m currently living in chokers, my Adidas sneaks, and leather moto jackets paired with a tee and ripped jeans. This was also my high school uniform so I suppose I’m staying with my purist roots and living in the 90’s.
I’m also really looking and already thinking of fall. Being in fashion keeps me one step ahead. I’m loving the intarsia trend. Loved seeing all the beautiful embroidery and knits on the runways of Gucci, YSL and Oscar De La Renta! Actually, also Gucci in general, it’s major GUCCIMANIA happening right now!
