I doubt that I’ll ever tire of shopping for fitness wear. Given the fact that I never wake up and think, Oh, boy! I get to go to circuit training/spin/yoga/pilates today!, I have to find my motivation elsewhere…and I invariably find it in retail. It’s a clear and simple fact: if I have something fun to wear, it inspires me to get out the door.
I’m not necessary spending a small fortune on clothes to roll around on the floor and sweat in. I have some very cute leggings from JCP that cost between $10 and $25, which is very reasonable. I’ve bought cropped pants at Gap Body for about half what I pay at Lucy…and they’re apparently made by the same manufacturer. But then I saw these.
I found them while perusing the Lululemon site, and it was love at first sight. The color blocking is universally flattering, and the reviews say the colors are even more beautiful in person. I just may have to break my frugal rule and buy a pair.
These photos were taken on an extraordinary Sunday afternoon in Napa. Pictured are my friends Hilary (left) and Kiky (right), and I’m in the middle. I’m sharing them here for several reasons:
- The sky doesn’t get much bluer than this.
- The joy in the three faces is almost tangible.
- We each embrace our own style.
- We are all over 60, proving that getting older doesn’t mean getting frumpy…or conservative…or boring…or invisible.
Life. Is. Good.
Strip away the crazy accoutrements of hair/hat, makeup, and leg garb, and this is one fabulous dress! I see it with black tights and patent-leather pumps for early spring, and with bare legs and red strappy heels for later in the season.
I love this dress!
Yes. Ohyesohyesohyes. Jason Wu comes through once again.
Oh, Mrs. O…your coat is stunning! The tie-inspired fabric has been brilliantly executed by Thom Browne.
You. Look. Amazing. Thank you for setting such a stylish–and realistic–example.
My inner fashion critic comes screaming to the surface during every awards show, and last night’s Golden Globe Awards were no exception. Here, in my humble opinion, are the hits of the evening:
Anne Hathaway in Chanel
Claire Danes in Versace
Jessica Alba in Oscar de la Renta
Helen Mirren in Badgley Mischka
Jodie Foster in Georgio Armani
Megan Fox in Dolce & Gabbana
Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta
Transitioning from best to worst, I think Tina Fey looked spectacular…Amy Poehler, not so much.
And the flops of the night:
Jessica Chastain (The expression on the face of the woman behind her pretty much sums up my feelings about this dress.)
Halle Berry (mainly because the bodice of this dress makes her look as if her right boob is melting)
