The weather has cooled down and if you’re like me you feel like you are in hibernation. Going out in the cold is on a “need to” basis, and those rare trips to the gym are becoming even rarer. Put kiddos in the mix and you’re lucky if you can even get to the gym. Well what we all need to do is bring the “gym” into our homes. No, not in the form of fancy equipment, but in the form of yoga and other forms of exercise that can be done in the comfort of your home. Whether it’s during naptime or a family activity, you can purchase fitness DVDs and books to bring fitness and health into your life during any season of the year.
Athletic apparel plays a few different roles in my wardrobe. The first and most obvious is to wear when I am exercising, but I also love to wear them as comfortable clothing and sometimes, depending on the material, as sleepwear. Hyde makes organic yoga apparel out of organic cotton blends making it a perfect choice for any of the scenarios I mentioned above. Although they are designed as yoga wear you will notice that they have a style to suit just about anyone’s needs and preferences. I love the wide color selection, variety in styles and soft organic cotton.
I find it the most motivating to work out when I am wearing something comfortable, but cute. Silly as it sounds, the right outfit or splurge will motivate me to want to wear it, and exercise more regularly. I had the opportunity to review the divine drawstring pant in orange (style pictured above), a perfect color for the fall season, and a bra tank in white. I love how long the pants were and the soft organic cotton had just enough stretch to move with my body and the tank top was supportive and sleek (I do warn you the white is a little see through, so just be aware so you don’t discover it AFTER you’re at the gym in front of 50 people). Don’t worry, I am not speaking from experience (this time). Between my yoga and Pilates DVDs and an elliptical, I wore it without an audience at home.
These pants have been the first pair I put on after they have been washed whether I am planning on working out or not and I absolutely adore them. I have been using them for over a month now and the only issue I have had is that part of the serging in the inside of the pants was coming slightly unraveled. It seems it was a complete fluke, and it was much to the surprise of the company as they have not had any issue with serging thus far. But you can order goodies rest assured that you have something that will last, as they back their products up 100% if anything were to ever be defected.
I love these pants and would recommend them to anyone. If you are shorter you may need to hem them as the pants run on the long side (for a refreshing change!), but they also have many shorts, and capris if you don’t want to be bothered. Treat yourself and the environment by going organic (I am eyeing the adorable capris and tank pictured below)!
