Ya’ll. I just wore yoga pants to drop the kids off at school yesterday. The not-wearing-of-yoga pants was one of hundreds of rules I set for myself when I had my first baby…along with not talking about bodily functions, not boring people with mundane stories about my kids, showering every day…I broke them all a long time ago. And as for not breaking the yoga pants rule — I went straight to taking the kids to school in my pjs. So there’s that.
But when I said “no yoga pants” eleven years ago, I had no idea they could be so cute. Or comfy. How have I missed out on this for a decade?
I was given an allowance to spend on a new outfit while I was there. And the first thing I discovered is that, after years of trying to clothing shop with four kids, I look like someone on the news prepping for a hurricane. I panic, grabbing everything I can, and leaving entire empty racks and shelves in my wake. This is shopping as a parent.
This is what I ended up with. A thin, super-comfy sweatshirt, with a green T underneath, and the pants! Oh, my goodness. Flattering because they’re black (of course), and fitted through the thigh with some sort of miracle butt fabric that lifts what should be lifted and pushes down the things that ought to be pushed down. And with a slight flare and puddle at the ankle to make your legs look super skinny. And that feels like buttah, people. Buttah.
They also have a girls’ line with some great stuff — my daughters would have loved the pink and purple sweatshirts and headbands.
The clothes are reasonably priced, and you may have seen them in places like Sports Authority or Cabela’s. I actually went home and discovered I had a Soybu shirt already in my closet that I wear running.
If you’re in Colorado, the flagship store is in the Cherry Hills Marketplace in Greenwood Village (near the new Trader Joe’s!). If you’re not, you can shop them online (where they’re also offering 25% off of everything until Sunday).
Thanks for visiting Peace but Not Quiet! I’d love it if you’d take a minute to like me on facebook and follow me on twitter.
