What I Wore: Beyond Yoga Stripes

I’m back in fitness gear. Surprise. Surprise….I really think I buy more workout clothes than regular clothes at this point.  It’s easy to do when you have luxury athletic brands like Beyond Yoga creating such comfortable and chic pieces.  It’s hard to go back to regular street clothes once your skin gets used to the insanely soft fabrics used in their clothing.  Last week I featured a post on this beloved brand so this week I decided to showcase one of my head-to-toe Beyond Yoga looks.

This cowl drape top is perfect to throw on after a workout to head to lunch or errands.  The best part is you can wear it two ways to create two totally different looks!

I like to keep my body warm in between teaching my Bar classes and tops like this one are easy and comfortable to throw on.

Work it Out: My Top Brands for Work Out Gear

I am a work out fanatic.  This also means I’m a work out gear fanatic.  Growing up as a competitive gymnast and dancer I have been active all of my life.  I enjoy yoga, pilates, tennis, and my favorite exercise….Bar Method!  Ironically, I hate to run so tennis serves as my cardio.  I attend Bar Method 4-5 days a week and tennis 1-2 days a week so, I pretty much live in active wear.  Lately, I find myself buying more work out clothing than actual street wear attire.  Well, that’s what is so great about these three favorite brands of mine.  All of their clothes are so cute that you want to wear them every where.  It also keeps you motivated during your work outs so you can stay looking good in your yoga pants :-)

Lululemon work out gear
Lululemon is probably the most well known out of the three.  The Canada-based company recently received a lot of publicity due to the whole see-through pants issue, but that has thankfully been resolved.  I must admit I am somewhat of a Lulu addict.  I feel like they were one of the first companies to take active wear to that next level of looking good from the gym to the mall.  The clothing are expensive, but to me I get my money’s worth because I wear them so much and the high quality materials keep their shape over time.  It doesn’t hurt that their pants make your rear end look super good too!
Splits 59 work out gear
Splits 59 is a company I just learned about almost a year ago.  Their line is just as expensive as Lululemon (maybe even a little pricier).  It’s only sold online or in a specialty store like Bar method. I love how their clothes have a real edginess to them with a lot of cut-outs and sheer details.  Work out gear with sex appeal. I have the flair pants in the middle and LOVE them!  They’re like a girdle that just sucks you in at all the right places.  
Karma work out gear
Karma is another Canadian company making soft, comfortable clothes.  This line is a little bit more affordable and is also sold in Nordstrom.  Their line has a more sophisticated and feminine vibe with asymmetric lines and ruffle details.  I have the mint T-shirt and wear it probably once a week.  I also have the blue jacket in black and have received numerous compliments on it.
I hope this gives you another reason to head to the gym or wherever you go to get your bootie tight!
Thanks for reading!
