Making a Mind-Body Connection through Comfort & Style

After a few years of curiosity, I finally joined a Barre3 studio a few months ago. My first class kicked my behind, but since I have become a loyal fan and I don’t see myself leaving the cult anytime soon lol. Transitioning from a workout that consisted of heavy lifting and running, Barre3 has been a gift that keeps giving to me, bringing more balance to my day, building muscle tone, and most recently providing me with this top and bottom from Lululemon Athletica. Who doesn’t love free gifts?

I tested this outfit in my class and it receives my stamp of approval for comfort and sweat resistance. The pants are super soft and the mesh sides, along with the open back of the shirt, makes them them breathable pieces that work well in classes with a lot of movement.

Whether you are looking for comfortable and casual looks or traveling to and from fitness classes daily, athleisure wear has gained popularity in recent years due to the rise in stylish fitness attire. Anyone else guilty of wearing workout clothes when you have absolutely no intentions of exercising that day? 

Built to provide support through your most active workouts with style to carry you through the rest of your day, this brand raises the bar in athletic apparel. I transitioned this look from workout attire to street style chic by adding a few simple additions: faux fur jacket, long cozy cardigan, ankle boots, and an accent clutch.

We experienced our first snow for the season in Atlanta over the weekend and the freezing temperatures provided the perfect opportunity to bring out my faux fur jacket. I wore my favorite ankle boots, purchased last year, and I completed the look with this sparkly clutch.

Snow is a rare occasion here in Atlanta, so it is a picture worthy experience in itself. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
