I think that there are certain people, things and experiences that are meant to come into our lives; whether they’re meant to shape us, help us grow and teach us, there’s a reason they show up. Yoga is one of those things for me. Yoga is the counterpart to my love for fashion; it addresses who I am inside, while my love for style addresses that in a physical way. Interestingly enough, I don’t really think about what I wear to yoga, it’s the one time during the day that I don’t care how I look. I tend to buy my yoga clothes from TJ Maxx since they have really great, inexpensive active wear. I like colorful sports bras, black yoga leggings and soft, dreamy pullovers. I don’t spend much time thinking about how I look which is refreshing. Sometimes, however, I have to go somewhere after class and I don’t have time to grab extra clothes or change. For those moments, I like to make sure I look halfway decent.Thanks to PINK by Victoria’s Secret here at University of South Carolina, I’ve just received my new favorite yoga pants. I’m not even going to deny that I love fitted yoga leggings because they show off my butt and do their job while doing so. This is tricky territory if, like me, you wear your yoga leggings to yoga and not around; they have to hug you in the right places and they definitely have to be thick enough. I’ve worn super cute leggings to class and felt like death because they’re not stretchy or aren’t breathable and I’ve worn leggings that are too big and gap way too much in the back. The Ultimate Yoga Legging are the perfect fabric; they breathe, they’re stretchy, they don’t lose their fit throughout class as you sweat. For someone who doesn’t spend a lot on their yoga clothes, I’ll definitely be investing in more of these pants. They’re comfy, they’re adorable and they make your butt look good. I hate being in public in my yoga clothes, but when I wear these babies, I don’t mind at all. I tried the leggings out and they’re perfect. Thank you so much to PINK at USC for letting me play around and feel awesome while doing it. Follow them on Instagram and Twitter for giveaways and updates!
Thanks to my twin, Alexandra, for the photos, find her on Instagram for some cool photos.
PS guys- yoga isn’t about being perfect, or achieving perfection in a pose. You have your entire life to work on yoga; the asanas, or physical postures, are just one of the eight limbs of yoga. I know that I’m not “perfect” in any of these postures. I think it’s a good reminder to let go of ego when you see a pose you’re not perfect in.
