Kohl’s provided me with the tops featured in this post free of charge. All of the opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own!
Hi there! First of all, thank you all so much for the wonderful words of support on Friday’s post! I am so excited and it meant so much to me that so many of you were so encouraging. It is a huge step for me and I’m hoping for the best! Bloggers are seriously the best people.
Case in point- Other health and fitness bloggers totally get my obsession with fitness clothing. I have more drawers in my closet dedicated to workout wear than any other types of clothing. While most people relish in buying a new dress or new shoes, I love finding some awesome capris for a spin class or a super cute top to wear to pilates.
Although I have to admit that fitness clothing prices can get a little out of control. $100 for a pair of yoga pants is a little bit crazy! That’s why I was super excited to learn that Gaiam and Kohl’s have teamed up to create cute, accessible workout clothes for under $75. I am a true believer that living a healthy lifestyle is something that should be available to everyone, regardless of income level and I love that this collection is helping families stay active and look great doing it!
If you are not familiar with Gaiam (first of all, crawl out from under the rock where you’ve been living), they are a huge yoga brand that has everything from videos to clothing to yoga mats. Their products are extremely high quality so I knew that the line designed for Kohl’s was going to be great!
Sure enough, I tried three tops from their new spring line and not only were they stylish, they felt great in all my yoga poses.
I also loved that the pieces were so easy to transition from class to street wear. I threw on a jacket, some sunglasses and sneakers and headed out to lunch in this vibrant green top.
The back detail made it look like a beautiful shirt rather than just a yoga top.
I also loved the versatility of this gray top. The fit was fantastic for yoga.
And it had this amazing ruching detail on the back and side of the top.
I love the subtle pattern and how it pairs perfectly with my bright capris.
The last piece I tried from the Gaiam for Kohl’s collection was a blue dress that is meant to transition from class to street.
I wasn’t sure about practicing yoga in a dress but it actually worked out well. I threw a pair of capris under the dress and it was like wearing a long tunic top. The dress didn’t fly up at all even in inversion poses! Plus, I loved the back detail.
The only issue for me with this dress was that it ran a bit big. I could have gone down one size in the dress and it probably would have fit a bit better. It was super comfortable though and was perfect for a post-practice walk with the little man!
Readers, are you a fitness clothing fanatic? How do you transition from class style to street style?
You’re looking gorgeous my friend! 🙂 YES I’m totally obsessed with workout fashion because it’s what I wear 90% of the time. I love picking up new fun workout clothes, especially ones that are affordable like Gaiam!
This yoga fashion post is the best! Love the tops. Your poses and color choices for photography give me the urge to run out to Kohls and find these very same yoga clothes! Nice choice with the black leather jacket and street art!
Excellent workout as always. It's challenging, fun and easily one of my favorite workouts!
Fantastic class! Great technique pointers. Always new exercises to challenge oneself!
I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!
Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.
My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
