Fit and Fashionable Friday: Soybu Love
Happy Almost Friday! I have several exciting pieces of news to share with you! First, I will be linking up with Nicole from Fitful Focus every Friday (or almost Friday in my case) for Fit & Fashionable Friday to bring you posts about fitness and fitness fashion. How fantastic is that? Phew…that’s a lot of F words 😉
I am so excited about this link up because it means I will get to share a bunch of awesome things that I haven’t had a chance to feature yet like workouts, fitness equipment that I love AND super cute, functional workout clothes!
I know most of you don’t know me in real life, but if you did (or do) then you would know that I practically live in workout clothes. Seriously, if I have to put real pants on then it involves quite the effort. Honestly, who has time for that anyway? Plus being comfy is where. it’s. at. I work hard enough during my workouts…I do not need to expend any more energy than necessary trying to put on actual clothes. That being said, just because I am of the lazy variety when it comes to style, I still like to look cute. Enter Soybu and my second announcement!
Soybu is a performance apparel designer with the philosophy that life should be all about balance which they apply to the clothes they create. They strive to empower active women so that they will feel stylish, feminine and comfortable! They recently asked me to be one of their Community Leaders and I couldn’t be more humbled or appreciative. As part of my duties, I get to share their fashionably comfortable clothes and show you how they fit into my active lifestyle.
Before I get into all the cute clothes, I just have to mention that each clothing item you order comes with this Soybu hair tie which I thought was really creative and thoughtful! I always love getting extra surprises
Ok, now onto the actual outfits! It was really hard to pick out just a few because all of their pieces are really beautiful and I could see myself wearing them all from working out to grocery shopping or even out to lunch. I ended up choosing this particular outfit because I could totally see myself doing any of those things. When they arrived in the mail, I was pleased to find that not only were they just as awesome as they appeared on their site, but they were super comfy as well.
One of my favorite pieces is the Goddess Tank. The front is ruched which is extremely flattering and the back has this awesome racer back with a keyhole detail which I absolutely love. It’s constructed of Stretch RE-FLEX and has a removable shelf bra with padding. Normally I am not a fan of shelf bras but this tank is really well constructed and fits absolutely perfectly.
Aside from some yoga poses and my balancing act on the BOSU I did some harder workouts in the outfit to really put it to the test Take a closer look at that keyhole detail in the tank…I seriously felt feminine even though I was reppin’ out some chin ups!
The bottoms I am wearing are the Killer Caboose Leggings and they seriously make the booty pop! They’re made of moisture wicking, breathable fabric and are incredibly comfortable and super slimming. They are perfect for getting your sweat on in or just throwing on to run some errands.
I actually did run a few errands right after these pics were snapped. I had to go pick my daughter up from school and head to the grocery store so I just threw on the Isla Hoody and a pair of boots and I ready to go!
What I LOVE about the Isla Hoody is the crossover rib detailing on the back bottom hem! It really adds an interesting fun touch to it that differentiates it from other zip ups that I own. I also have to mention that it’s super soft and wrinkle resistant which is important to me because one should never, ever have to iron a hoody, amirite?
To me, Soybu’s designs really do emulate strength, balance and beauty. Not only are they comfortable and functional but their pieces are also feminine. This is just one of many outfits that I have to share but I will save the rest for another fit and fashionable post. Check back next week for more #fitnfashionable fun and don’t forget to head over to Fitful Focus, say hi to Nicole and link up tomorrow!
Special thanks to Raineydayz Photography for the awesome photos!
QOTD: Do you live in leggings and hoodies too or are you one of those over achievers that actually dresses in “real clothes”? 😛
