Confession: I pretty much live in active wear – aka- I find a way to some how incorporate workout tanks and leggings into almost every single outfit I wear, no matter the occasion. I think Blake has finally come to accept that YES, yoga pants are pants. My entire wardrobe is based off of 3 main criteria: 1. Comfort 2. Quality 3. Cuteness.
I am excited to share with you Carrie Underwood’s new active wear line today called CALIA. In my opinion, it hits all 3 of my (very important) criteria on the head. Best part is- the pieces are so versatile that you can take any one of them outside the studio and feel confident in them.
Check out my collections from studio to street below. A big thanks goes out to Brooke Alexandra Photography for the beautiful photographs.
// Yoga to Travel //
Featured Item: CALIA Essential Printed Tight Fit Capri.
These pants ROCK my world. I love, love, love, the floral print as well as the compression feel of them. They are tight, yet breathable and they fit me like a glove. I am a huge fan of wide waistbands and a higher-waisted yoga pant. Check and check.
Look 1: Yoga
I paired the CALIA Essential Printed Tight Fit Capri with a solid black tank and olive green mala beads. This is something I would wear to a candlelight or vinyasa yoga class. I’d always make sure to pair them with a solid top to balance out the pattern.
Look 2: Travel
If I am traveling on an airplane you can guarantee I will be wearing leggings. In this outfit, I have paired CALIA’s Essential Printed Tight Fit Capri with an oversize sweater, leather boots, and a large bag. If I’m wearing leggings in public, I always try to wear a top that covers my bum, just like this sweater.
// Gym to Mall //
Featured Item: CALIA Essential Tank.
I LOVE the fabric that this tank is made from. It’s super soft and is long enough to cover my long torso, which is an A+ in my mind. I also love the neckline and the width of the straps. They’re wide enough for me to wear a sports bra with and have it hidden.
Look 1: Gym
I paired the pink CALIA Essential Tank with solid black leggings and the black CALIA Essential Fitness Jacket zip-up. I almost always wear a zip-up to the gym and I love that this one has thumb-holes. It’s also extremely well made and the shape is very flattering.
Look 2: Mall
Taking the CALIA Essential Tank outside of the gym is an easy thing to do because the cut and fabric are so high quality. For this mall look, I paired the CALIA Essential Tank with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a blazer, and booties for a comfortable day out! You’d never even know that this tank came from an active wear line!
