Let me set the scene for you: I was sitting at my desk, not feeling entirely motivated to take a shower or get dressed, when the amazing idea popped into my head to photograph what I AM ACTUALLY WEARING AT THIS MOMENT. Crazy, right? Oh, and I don’t have any makeup on either. Basically, my schedule most of the week is to go to a Pure Barre class, either at 6 AM or 8:30 AM, come home, immediately drink a protein shake and my coffee, and sit down and work for a while. I don’t get really sweaty in class except on Saturdays (the teacher is hard core, she moves us through the stretches faster!), so I don’t have to shower right after. Anyway, I’m always super-comfortable in whatever I’m wearing, especially in these pants.
Speaking of these pants, I call them my crazy, or fancy pants, depending on my mood, and even though they mostly get tons of compliments (one of the teachers at my studio ordered a pair), they do garner some weird looks from the Lululemon devotees 😉 They’re super-soft, and a bit thicker than you’d normally wear for yoga or working out, but I really haven’t found them to be too hot. I love the extra room around the hips/thighs as an alternative to just leggings, and it makes moving around quickly really easy. I don’t wear these other than at home or for working out (I do tend to keep workout/lounge clothing separate from “street” clothing), but you could if you were so inclined. They’re thick enough so they’re not see-through, and really just look like “normal” pants. Be prepared for stares though 🙂 I’m used to that already, what with my Eileen Fisher harem pants, and the Sweaty Betty harem skirt that I wear all the time…
I know SOME of you guys have ordered already from Sweaty Betty, but if you’re put-off by their being in the UK, don’t be. The shipping takes longer, and you can’t track it, but I get my orders generally within a week. And with the 15% off and free shipping, the pricing is reasonable. Definitely try Sweaty Betty if you’re looking for something different than Lululemon; I’m a convert!!
Who’s tried Sweaty Betty? What do you wear to yoga or to work out? Would you wear a bright printed harem pant like these??
