#ad Soybu Starmaze Collection

What a fun collection to dive into the holiday season with Soybu. Here is the signature print for this collection:

Of course I went for the more holiday feel with the collection as I used the Paris Free Flow sweater in Malachite and Tory Legging in Black to complete this outfit. The holiday was indeed Halloween.:

The staples in this collection are versatile between active wear and casual looks. Here is the Yvette Tunic in Storm and my absolute favorite Killer Caboose Leggings in Charcoal in the middle of a snowmelt creek:

Soybu Mykonos Collection

I love being a Soybu Community Leader. The clothes are mighty flattering and the company is about empowering people to be active, confident and look good going between day to day activities. I for one like feeling empowered. Plus they are local company to me. The other big bonus of being a community leader is having so many great options to toss on as I am headed out to teach at the studio.

This latest collection has been fun to wear. I am in LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with the Camryn Tee. If you follow me on Instagram you have seen this top a lot since January. The texture of the fabric is soft and the cut is elegant. I pair this top with a backless dress a lot to show off the opening with how it drapes with a large opening keyhole.

The only criticism that I have is that most tanks to do not fit very well on my short torso. They need to have higher necklines or the girls could make a sneak appearance if I am moving around too much. Just a heads up for us petite ladies.

Here are some samplings from the Mykonos collection.

#SoybuLove Murano style

This past year I have fallen for a local clothing company and was lucky enough to be named as a community leader with Soybu. You may have seen them in my photo streams:

It never fails that I get complimented on these Allegro capris

Even though I am partial to the Killer Caboose Capris, well the Killer Caboose line to be honest.

They have collections for women, girls, and men with seasonal collections every few months. Currently The Murano collection is hallmarked with a Dragonfly teal that looks flattering on every skin tone.  The pieces layer well with each other and I have stacked a pant with a tunic tank with a dress and a coat.  I live in Denver though and our random snow storms lend to layering.

Pictured in the top image are the Darling Coat in Dragonfly ($99), Lanai Tunic Tank in Murano ($46) and Killer Caboose Pant ($78). The other piece I got from the collection was the Elana Dress in Dragonfly Ministripe ($68).

SOYBU *CO Yoga Love

I have been a certified yoga teacher since 2009 – yoga pants are my uniform.  There is another group of workers that yoga pants are a uniform to as well… MOMS.  I am a mom of young kids so I get it, you need fabrics that move with your body to get down on their level all the time. Recently when Soybu yoga clothing held their flagship store grand opening my mom and yoga world collided when I received an invite thanks to the Mile High Mamas.

Yes, you can move in their clothes

I had the good fortune of already knowing about Soybu thanks to a Bombshell Tank and Lotus Short I received from last year’s FitSocial conference. I did not get to interact with them when they supported the I’m Unique Yoga Illustrated Union tour that held a LARGE class at Invesco Field in the summer because I was traveling but that event was in my heart and I was named one of Colorado’s Top 100 Yoga and Fitness Professionals there. Soybu has been mindfully reaching out to the yoga and wellness community for a while even though only establishing in 2010.  Soybu reaching out to a less traditional wellness community was refreshing.

Since I was already familiar with the brand, their fit, and my size I was ready to shop. I did not drink or eat any goodies because I was too busy in the dressing room, getting feedback from Jamie G (a Soybu community leader I know from the FitSocial conference), and talking to Soybu staff.   I finally settled on two capris and a pair of leggings.

Some fun leggings I had to get.

At the event I had time to speak with Erin about the Soybu concept and clothing for everywoman.  She said they wanted to do an event for moms even if they do not do yoga because the clothes celebrate being a woman of all sizes and abilities.  The care of the construction, quality of fabric, and selection of colors and styles do leave a lot of room for even non-athletes to feel fantastic in their gear.  As far as sizing for every woman their activewear goes to XXL which is roughly a size 16.  It is not a perfect fit for all but for many.

prAna Cherry Creek Spotlight + giveaway

I am lucky to live where I do, Colorado is a pretty special place. My husband and I chose this area for a healthy lifestyle that includes activity and access to recreation. It is because of this lifestyle that clothing and recreation companies thrive here. PrAna clothing opened their second Colorado retail location earlier this month in the Cherry Creek area of Denver.  I toured the store and would like to offer my readers an outfit giveaway from this forward-thinking company.

The new Cherry Creek location was built and modeled with the help of local repurposing artist Joe Levy.  The wood above the service counter is from a barn deconstructed from back east, the planters outside the store entrance are a marvel to look at, the fusion of wood and metal reverberate through the location from shelving to wall art to unique lighting by the dressing rooms.

One aspect of the store is the adaptability of the space to serve multiple functions.  The retail space behind the counter converts into a studio where product is moved and walls extend to create a room for yoga and other physical disciplines.  In keeping with the mind for community involvement these classes are made free to the public and taught by qualified instructors.

One community aspect I like of this store is in the management choices.  PrAna chose an employee who has experience in opening stores in the area with a past resume including the opening of the Apple store in the nearby mall.  He is familiar with the neighborhood and looking to continue the prAna direction of involvement with neighbors and like-minded causes.  Later this summer you will see this store be part of Yoga Rocks the Park as well as closer endeavors for the public.  See their June schedule for a glance of what they are up to

The basis of this company is the clothing.  It is meant to be functional for active, mindful people so you will see it on rock climbers, pilates enthusiasts, yogis, and on people just hanging out because it is rather stylish.

I looked mostly at the women’s clothing but believe me, they carry a men’s line too.  My husband actually seems to have a number of articles from prAna including pants he wears to the office as well as his favorite wicking tee for workouts.

The company is looking at their mindful practices with how they deliver an end-product to the consumer.  They are developing more organic cotton products and are working with their overseas production facilities to ensure fair trade practices.

The new prAna store is at 105 Fillmore Street in the Cherry Creek neighborhood of Denver.  I urge you to stroll on in for a free class and to shop to familiarize yourself with this company.  They were also kind enough to offer one my readers an outfit of the Quinn Chakara top and Mackenzie Knicker in any size and color combo of the winner’s choosing.
