Please, Let Me Shop Vicariously Through You


I’m not ashamed to admit that I love fitness/sports fashion. Even more so than regular fashion. Some people covet the latest DVF. I drool over the newest Outdoor Voices line.

However, my addiction to leggings and performance hoodies is on hiatus until I get back to SF. I’m not even buying new ski gear. Why? For one thing, I can’t justify spandex shopping on a ski bum salary. Second, our cabin here in Montana is teeny-tiny, so I went all minimalistic and brought only the bare minimum.

In some ways, it’s nice to just enjoy what I have — which is all perfectly fine, if I’m being honest. It’s even kind of KonMari zen. But once in awhile, when I fall into an online browsing black hole, I feel some withdrawal pangs.

So even though I’m taking a break from the latest yoga, tennis, studio and ski looks, YOU don’t have to, my gainfully-employed, fit friends. Here are my latest picks that I hope someone will buy, wear (and post on Insta, obviously), so I can live vicariously through you:

Manduka, famous for their cult-favorite yoga mats, just released a beautiful apparel line. I’m coveting these four feminine pieces for spring:

1. Loop-Back Cami

2. Essential Capri Legging

3. Flux Legging

4. Wrap Up Bralette

I am loving the European brands that are slowly showing up in the U.S. The cuts and styles are so much more flattering for women, in my opinion. These picks are from Peak Performance and Tenson — both Swedish brands. Peak Performance is a little harder to find in the U.S., so check it out the next time you ski in Europe or Canada.

1. Peak Performance Heli 2-Layer Gravity Jacket

2. Peak Performance Heli Gravity Pants

3. Tenson “Nivi” Jacket

4. Tenson “Maddie” Ski Pants

While I’m loving how much skiing I’m doing, I’ll be excited to pick up my tennis game again come spring. I normally tend toward dresses and skirts, but this season I want to add some shorts to my tennis wardrobe.

1. InPhorm Ruched Dress

2. Lucky in Love On the Line Twist Front Cami

3. Lucky in Love On the Line Print Skirt

4. Adidas Stella McCartney Tour Cap Sleeve

5. Adidas Stella McCartney Short

Happy shopping!
