Right now is the best time to revisit past resolutions that may have gotten lost in the thick of the terrible winter that most of us had and time to think about nothing but summer from here on out. It's a spring cleaning of sorts that I always go through this time of year. I always feel the switch of seasons in the spring where my hair gets funky, my skin tries to adjust and my body goes through a little bit of a change. That revisitation of goals always helps keep everything steady, as activities like hot yoga really help to keep my body regulated. It's been a faster change this year because New Orleans was in the 80s already when I left for Japan (which is freezing, by the way. who knew?) so I've been able to transition my workout wardrobe and start to fully embrace the energy that comes with warmer days.
There's something to be said for a new piece of workout gear that also motivates to get out and accomplish my goals. I'm that person that needs a new workout song and maybe a cool new sports bra to test out when I'm motivating to get my butt out the door. Lately, I'm really into fresh whites with a really simple, clean lines. This x-bra shape is my current favorite and can be easily mistaken for a crop top that can be worn with billowy white trousers maybe in somewhere like Mykonos....ok, a girl can dream right? Think about all those steps I could climb in this against all of the white!
This is more of a gym or outside beach workout look for me since I don't wear loose shorts to yoga usually. I usually go up a size in shorts and let them be airy and sit low on the hips. These have a reflector built in so jogging or walking at night is safer and easier. Details below:
