Co-founder of 'Dress Your Guests', fitness instructor at HSM core and soon-to-be mum of two - is there nothing Kate Brennan can't do!? 

We previously interviewed this superwoman in our 'Inspired By' series and thought it would be great to invite her to choose her favorite Alexis Mera piece to style in any which way. Read on to find out what Kate loves about the Tropical Floral joggers and where she's wearing them! 

AM: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your typical day?

I am typically up early and start my day with a workout.  I love the 5:30 or 6 am classes because it helps me set a positive and energetic tone for the day.  I also enjoy being awake before the city wakes up.  I take my daughter to school and work while she is there.  I prioritize my day around her pick up and drop off because seeing her big smile and little pigtails when I pick her is the highlight of my day.  While she naps I typically take conference calls and work from 2-5.  Then I try my absolute best to keep my phone and laptop down from 5-8 as that is family time.  I then return to work again from 8-10.  My priorities in life have shifted since starting a family and I really enjoy being home with my husband, daughter (soon to be daughters) and drinking wine.  Can’t wait for the wine to return to my life!  My husband and I love to have people over and we bought a house to cater to entertaining so we can truly live the life of “eat, drink and be merry.”  

AM: Tell us about this outfit! Which​ pieces did you pair your AM gear with, and why​?

I chose the joggers and they are my best friend at 8 1/2 months pregnant.  The bold print calls for a simple tank and sandals.  Ray-ban mirrored sunglasses make the bold pink pop from the pants.  Of course, in this Carolina heat I needed my signature braids to keep the look clean and fresh.

AM: Where are 3 places you’d wear this outfit? 

Brunch, Errands and anything that involves being on mom duty!

AM: What do you love most about your new AM piece? 

The fabric!  I also love the bold colors.  Anyone who knows me knows I love a bold pop of color.


AM: How would you describe your style in two words? 

Tailored and simple.


AM: If you were deserted on an island, what one item would you want with you?

Oh man that sounds like a vacation.  I would just need my family and some cocktails. 

AM: Favorite sinful treat food?

Carbohydrates are my weakness.  I can never say no to a good bowl of pasta.

AM: Prints or plains to work out in?

Plains.  Black on the bottom and bold neon pop on top.

AM: One place in the world you would love to visit?

African Safari is next on my list.  We were headed there on our honeymoon and changed it the week before we left.

AM:  Favorite song to work out to?

Anything hip-hop.  I love Biggie, Tupac, 50 Cent, Jay-Z.  I taught at HSM |Core and took such pride in my playlists.  I think great playlists increase your productivity during your workouts and make the session more enjoyable.
