Fitness Fashion Friday #6: My Lorna Jane Obsession Continues + Product Giveaway!

Yo yo my friends.  Yay for the weekend.  You know what time it is – Fitness Fashion Friday!  In case you can’t tell, I’ve been really into Lorna Jane lately.  I just discovered the Australian activewear brand this Summer when I was in California for IDEA World Blogfest.  I won a $500 Lorna Jane gift card while I was there and I’ve been hooked ever since.  This brand has the quality and luxurious feel of Lululemon and the vibrant, inspirational spunk of Nike – perfect balance.  I’ve been spending way too much time at the new Lorna Jane store in Dallas, so I figured I’d make a blog post out of my latest shopping experience and styling session….

The friendly stylists and vibrant store decor making shopping at Lorna Jane a wonderful experience!

So I stopped by Lorna Jane after work on a Friday afternoon and was instantly greeted by Angelica’s bright shining face.  Angelica is part of the the management team at Lorna Jane Dallas North Park and she is wonderful!  P.S. I love the saying on her shirt (above) – Why Not? That’s very gritty – I like 🙂

So much cute to stuff to try on! Decisions decisions…

Angelica helped me pick out 5-6 complete outfits to try on.  I love that many of the styles are coordinated so you can mix and match pieces without being too “matchy matchy” (although I have a guilty pleasure of overly matching my clothes).  I also like the inspirational quotes and sayings that are printed on the Lorna Jane tops and even on the bottoms.  As a fitness instructor, it helps me stand out and energize my group when I have big bold words like “Run Girl Run” on my clothes.  Also the Lorna Jane basic black tights are amazing!  They fit super snug and are made of a really thick material that sucks everything in (in a good way).   In fact, my fellow fitness blogger, Julie from Peanut Butter Fingers, included the Lorna Jane pants on her list of favorite workout capris/tights.  There’s nothing like a killer pair of tights to make me feel super sexy and fit!

How can you not feel energetic when you have “energetic” written in silver sparkles down your leg?

I tried on so many cute outfits in variety of colors and styles including this cute cut-out lime green tank top (above).  I ended up buying the black cut-out tank instead, but it was a hard decision.

During my styling session I was impressed to learn that Lorna Jane leads cool community building and philanthropic initiatives like “swap shop.”  Swap Shop allows you to bring old clothes back in the store and donate them to the salvation army.  In exchange, you get a store credit.  How cool is that?  They also host “Active Living Day” where they sponsor free, high quality workouts all over the nation.  Lorna Jane hosted free, on-site spin classes from Beyond Pedaling in Dallas this Fall.

Vests have officially made a come back #trust

When it was time to decide on my purchases my stylists, Angela and Angelica, gave me their honest opinions on what looked best.  I appreciated having them around because they got me out of my rut of “black capris and bright tank top.” For instance, I bought these cute polka dotted booty shorts (see below).   I ended up spending my entire $500 gift card and I’m so happy with everything that I bought.  Obviously I’m an activewear junkie and I love almost all activewear brands, but I’ve officially become a HUGE fan of Lorna Jane!

    Such cute stuff!! I think I tend to work harder during my workouts when I love what I’m wearing! Crossfit is my ‘work & play’ time but teaching all day long is work & play too:)

    I work full time as a nurse and am a single mom of 4. Having time to workout can be a challenge so I like to incorporate extra time playing with my children into my routine.

    I work at an Alternative School during the day. That causes a lot of drama so I try to walk at least a mile a day. Thank you

    I make sure to schedule my workouts on a regular basis. I feel better when I workout out which helps me focus more on my work.
