Athleta Haul

Since it’s the start to a new year (hey, it’s February, I like to take it slow), I thought I would get my head in the game by doing a little fitness/workout clothing shopping online. Athleta.com provided me with a gift certificate to shop their Spring collection — but to be honest, I just got a little carried away with their entire collection. So I don’t even know if I purchased anything from that Spring line or not! Hey, I’m nothing if not honest. All in all, I had a really enjoyable experience shopping on the site (which is also part of the Piperlime/Gap/Banana Republic conglomerate) and although I found a lot of items were backordered in my size, I am really pleased with the items I did purchase, and won’t be sending anything back.

Plus I got a pair of Birkenstocks in the mix! Does anyone even wear those anymore? Oh well, I plan to.

    I wear Birkis around the house to help with my bum foot thanks to standing all day as a teacher and running! I wish they had some “professional” looking shoes. heehee I love Athleta as they are a Girls on the Run sponsor which is a FABULOUS organization for young girls. 🙂

      I have the same pair except in the bronze color and they are pretty comfy!

    I LOVE Athleta…I have several pieces and they are tried-and-true. And believe me, I put them to the test. I find Athleta to be much better than Lululemon too. Better prices and better quality. Plus an amazing guarantee!

    Headlights – how can i say this subtly?? you know the front facing portion of what’s in your bra? and when that portion becomes more noticeable while working out? “headlights”. love the blog!!

    Tights is the correct term for tight-fitting workout pants. They are most often used for running :-). Love this review – I have been wanting to try Athleta.

    I recently got some Athleta stuff to motivate me to work out as well. I’ve been practically living in my tights. Did you know that if you buy it in the store, they hem it for free! I really liked that perk, since the straight up pant, even in petite, was a little too long for me. I’m not sure if it’s at all the locations, but I know the one in the Rice Village does.

    Love love love Athleta! I don’t usually get excited about yoga clothes, but their stuff is so pretty it’s hard not to.

    Enjoyed the haul! I definitely need to invest in a couple more pieces for working out!stylethroughhereyes.com

    Love light and breezy tops for workout, too. I don’t like the feeling of fabric clinging on my sweaty skin. lol And I think Birkenstocks are always perfect for a laid back day.

  • Great haul! I’m in dire need of some new fitness gear, so I’ll be checking out the Athleta site.

    Hello! Thanks so much for the lovely comment via instagram re: stylish travel — and such a great idea for a post! Will definitely try to put one together in the next few weeks — in the mean time, Sarah had covered something similar in her Take Me Away series : http://www.thisisglamorous.com/2011/10/take-me-away-no-02-luggage-to-last.html — hope that helps! xo
