When lululemon came out with their Mind over Miles collection, with their sports bra and tights in white – it was a dream come true for me. Always a complicated scenario to think that anyone would buy anything in white to workout in – I of course jumped at that opportunity. And being a big fan of lululemon’s workout gear, it was inevitable that this was going to happen…
White, a current trend, with the summer button down dresses, the wide leg pants, and the classic dress shirt, why not extend to the streetwear and gyms of the world with lululemon’s white on white workout clothes.
To hang out
Weekends is all about the athlesiure look, and so these tights are the perfect pair to stroll around the streets of Toronto. I don’t recommend wearing the tights during a steamy hot Toronto day, but considering the weather to be cooler this summer (and much rainier) these tights are the perfect pair with your favourite off shoulder top. The white sports bra makes for a great crop top paired with jean shorts or a jean skirt because of its additional band underneath for more coverage. The longer length sports bra takes athleisure to a whole new level!
To work out
With a zipped up pocket at the back, a credit card pocket in the front and a cell phone pocket on the side, I think you’re pretty much covered to bring anything the heart desires. As obvious as this must seem, working out is a dirty sport. Blood, Sweat and Tears have been put in that last hour of bootcamp, or spin cycle. But also as obvious as it might seem, white gets dirty as fast as sweat on your mat during a hot yoga session, so I would avoid a run on a muddy street after a rainstorm, or an obstacle course race. duh!
Why I bought it: I truly believe that moderation is key to eating right and motivation is key to working out. When you’re excited by what you wear, you’re more likely to be excited with what you’re doing when wearing it. The same goes for working out. As I get excited and pumped with what I’m wearing, I bring that energy to my workouts.
