Athleta’s newest collection was “designed for days of mindfulness, rest, and recovery.” Does anyone else feel like they are going going going all of the time? I know I do! I constantly hear myself saying, “Once I finish this, my life will calm down.” Well, guess what? Life only slows down if you make it. But, let me back up really quick. If you are not familiar with Athleta I want to introduce you to a brand I am extremely passionate about.
“Our mission is to ignite a community of active, healthy, confident women and girls who empower each other to realize their limitless potential.”
How cool is that? Athleta aims to ignite a community of women to live their best lives. That right there is why I love this brand, and I haven’t even mentioned their apparel yet. “It’s all about premium quality, total performance, feminine style and the versatility we need for our entire active lifestyle, from work to workout to weekend.” The restore collection features beyond-soft styles that you have to feel to truly experience how luxurious they are. These items will help you slow down and take some time to restore your soul.
Here I’m wearing the Stealth TruCool Tight, Threadlight Layering Tank and the Studio Wrap. I love how these pieces perfectly combine fashion and fitness. I can tell you right now, I’ll be wearing this wrap non-stop this fall. These compression leggings are also a favorite of mine to wear to cycling. Each item easily transitions from one part of my life to another.
A few ways I restore is going to cycling class, reading a book (I’m currently reading Beautiful Bodies) or treating myself to an iced coffee and actually sitting down to enjoy it rather than slurping it down on the go. It is not easy to slow down and restore yourself but it is so important. How do you take time to restore?
If you’re looking for a way to restore this week come by Athleta in Cherry Creek on Wednesday from 6 – 8 pm. Monica of Mind on Nutrition and I will be hosting a Relax & Restore event. Monica will be chatting about mindful eating and I’ll be styling a few of my favorite items from Athleta. This will be a great opportunity to slow down and also meet some like-minded women here in Denver!
