New Jeans for the Fall!

Fall is just around the corner & I can’t wait!  I am trying out these J Brand mid-rise skinnies in a fun, blue wash.  Their cropped length will be perfect for showcasing my favorite fall booties.  On SALE HERE.

Crazy for Onzie

I have been eyeing these online for awhile, in this particular print (sound wave).  So imagine my surprise when, upon completing a grueling inversion workshop this weekend, I found them on the sale rack at my studio!  It was like the universe rewarding me for my hard work.  You can find them HERE.

If you follow my blog, you know about my dissatisfaction with the yoga gear available on the market (in particular the $100+ a pop Lululemon cult!).  I am ever on the quest for finding gear I love, is functional & that I am excited to wear.  These are so fun & flattering.  I am super picky & here, again, is my criteria:

My perfect yoga pant must be…

1. …in the $50 or below range

2. …mid-calf to full-length (so I don’t slip during sweaty inversions & arm balances)

3. …low, wide waistband

4. ..sweat-camouflaging (to hide the ever-flattering crack sweat that is inevitable during heated vinyasa)

5. …FUN

6. …and most importantly pass the see-through bend test when I’m spread into prasarita! 

ONZIE LEGGING VIDEO from The Onzie Crew on Vimeo.

I love Onzie because it was developed by a long-time yogi & is super versatile (sweaty yoga? spinning? swimming? running? surfing? Check!).  They are affordable (especially when you nab them on sale!). Oh, and they’re local!

"At Onzie our philosophy is ‘keep your practice challenging, and your wardrobe simple!’  In keeping with the principle of being inclusive, rather than exclusive, Onzie is affordably-priced and suitable for all activities and practices. Onzie products are made with love in southern California.

Utilizing Free-Flow Fabric Technology that is durable and breathable, this fast-drying material keeps bodies cool, dry and comfortable. Onzie yoga gear is perfect for hot yoga, but can also be used for pilates, spinning, swimming, surfing, running or hooping. Our clothes can be worn as everyday wear or into chlorine and salt water environments. You can transition in and out of yoga postures as seamlessly as you can the rest of your day.  So embrace the awareness of your being, sense your core, and feel secure. Focus on your strength and beauty.”

Patchwork Perfection

Are you up on the patchwork trend? Looks like it’s going to be around for fall.  I just snagged these cuties at the Zara sale, but you can also find these Current/Elliott’s on sale over at Shopbop (they even come recommended by the ever-chic Marlien Rentmeester of Le Catch).

Skinny Mini

I’m not generally a Gap girl.  My style is seldom described in the realm of perky or preppy.  Cardigans (except the baggy 90s grunge kind) bum me out.  But every once in awhile, a girl needs a comfy staple!  The Gap Skinny Mini Skimmer doesn’t look like much, but the fit is flattering & it can be styled a million ways.  Because even Sunday errands deserve some love.  (Plus I nabbed mine during an in-store sale for only $35!)  Right now you can use code ‘GAP35’ for 35% off your purchase.  If you really want to get on the prep wagon, pair it with a fun color-block striped tank.
