Tepuy Active Wear

If you work out on the reg or don’t and just have a high affinity for great leggings, then you need to know about Tepuy Active Wear. I’ve struggled with my weight and body image my whole life and it wasn’t until I started working out regularly and getting into a healthy routine that I started to feel confident and strong.

I found a great group of women to work out with and encourage me in a class setting that kept my workouts fun and full of high energy so I wasn’t just standing there thinking about how hard certain things were or how tired I was. When I’m not in classes, my husband does an amazing job of keeping me active and helps me work on my strength and weight training. That’s fun for me too since we always have fun together. For me, the most important things in maintaining my routine and motivation are to feel good doing it and to always be having fun, even if I’m pouring sparkling sweat. Since I pretty much have the fun part down, let me tell you how to feel good: wear the right stuff!!

It may sound a little silly, but my workouts can be completely miserable if my pants are constantly falling down after a few squats because they are stretched out or if my shorts are a little snug because of the summer treats I’ve had recently. It’s so important to wear the right pieces and feel great in them while you’re working on your fitness – cue fergalicious. I also find that a new gym outfit is motivation to get your butt to the gym. Naturally, we are typically very excited to wear our new pieces no matter what category. I have found a good formula in my Nike tempo shorts. Sometimes they annoy me but overall they are a good fit for me and I have a trillion pairs because they come in the prettiest color combos. Finding great pants has been a nightmare. My girlfriends and I complain all the time about how ours constantly fall down before, during and after workouts. You can imagine my excitement when I discovered Tepuy Active Wear. Y’all! Excited doesn’t even begin to cover it! They feel like butter but better. They have the most amazing fit because they are designed by a woman (a very sweet girl boss that owns the company) and have all my problem areas covered: A generous waistband that hits in just the right spot, a killer side pocket that fits my massive phone and they are the furthest thing from see through. The best part: they held up during my 1 hour class and all my runs this week and never moved an inch. I didn’t tug them or adjust them once and that’s when I was truly sold!!! They offer the most amazing prints and patters but I opted for the black because I’m #basic and wanted something I could wear with all my tops. By all my tops, I mean ALL because I plan on wearing these ALL. THE. TIME.

I’ve linked my pair below so you can shop them now and my tank is only $5 right now and comes in some seriously amazing colors. Hope you guys have the best Saturday and enjoy whatever it is you have planned. I’m finishing this post just as I am about to hop out the door for boot camp so I can get my workout in before I really start my day. It’s supposed to be gorg here in NC today so get outside and enjoy it!

Hooray for hump day already! Few things get me super excited. Not like a little excited, but really pumped where you’re borderline obsessing and telling anyone who will listen how happy you are that ruffles and one shoulder tops are trending and this top is the be-all-end-all to that story & today I’m adding a little flav-a-flav with these tropical printed shorts.

weding guest style palm print dress

CONFESSION: I love big bright prints! It probably isn’t a groundbreaking or even surprising confession, but I’m completely crazy about them and this palm print dress is no exception. I actually have to force myself not to completely immerse my wardrobe with prints and embellished pieces – balance is key y’all. Continue reading

Chambray ruffle dress

It’s Friday Junior Y’all (as my favorite bitoji would say)!!! I get so excited about Thursdays because the weekend is so close I can taste it! I’m also really excited to be sharing this chambray ruffle dress with you guys. For me, it’s a weekend no-brainer. I clearly have a thing for chambray dresses with sweet details. You might remember this one from one of my summer posts last year. That dress is still a favorite and still in my rotation but with ruffles trending right now, I couldn’t resist throwing this sweet one in the mix. It also has pockets! Be still my heart!!!
