It’s definitely been more of a challenge these days to stay fit while sheltering in place. I’m definitely a gym rat, so it’s affected me a whole lot, but I’ve gotten creative with weights at home and HIIT sessions with Insanity. During my days at the gym pre-COVID, I was lucky to build up my own kind of motivation to keep up my game based on…well, feeling on top of my game, but it definitely wouldn’t have been the same without proper activewear. In the beginning, I didn’t care about workout style…I was grabbing anything cheap I could find at Ross. However, over time, once I established my routine and momentum, I also built up my favorite, higher-end wardrobe. This wasn’t just for style, but also comfort, ease of movement, sweat management…and just for the fun factor. It really can be motivating and confidence-building to break a sweat with a little attention to your workout style and some fun new pieces!
Summer is here, and things are starting to heat up. Even though we might still be sheltering in place, I’m sure many of us are getting tired of wearing our pajamas around the house (at least I am) and are finding creative ways to get out and see friends and family, from a safe distance of course. I know several of you are still working or have returned to work, and may always be looking for fresh looks for the office.
Either way, the warmer summer weather usually brings lighter colors for some in an effort to stay cooler under the sun, and white denim is always a summer staple, whether for work or out and about on the town. White denim is one of those things that seems so hit or miss. I know many, including me, are usually afraid of wearing it due to the fact that it seems to get dirty easily, and it’s tough to find a flattering pair (which, however, applies to jeans in general). There’s also the risk of ending up with a pair that isn’t quite as opaque as we’d like! However, the denim industry isn’t new to this shade, and has made several improvements over the years. 7 For All Mankind is a brand that has been amazing at creating some pretty unique improvements to the white denim styles we’re all used to seeing.
