One of the MANY reasons I adore my Splits59 gear, is that their comfort & versatility are unparalleled. Just to give a snapshot of a day in my life last week:
Tuesday Morning: I wake up & throw on my Raquel pants & Elise tank (I can’t help it…. I am totally partial to this sleek fitting top that bears my name. It’s my all-time favorite!!). After practicing my handstands, and downing a glass of OJ during my morning stretches, I dash out to teach 4 consecutive classes!! My Splits gear lets my body flow, contort, and breathe for 5 straight hours as I give my ALL to classrooms filled with high energy yogis & yoginis. After all 5 classes, the incredible weave & wear has kept me dry & fresh…… so much so, that when I went to grab my post-class smoothie, the barista asked if I was on my WAY to working out!! He couldn’t even tell I’d been sweating non-stop all morning. LOVE this.
Tuesday afternoon: I know I’ll be spending 10 hours on a plane to Paris later tonight, so I decide to grab my NOVA capris & take a quick run by the beach. Since I run into at least 7 hot guys as I fly past the Santa Monica stairs, I am really pleased to be looking so stylish, rather than being schleppy in sweats of baggy generic running pants. If I had slowed down at all, I’m SURE my Novas would have gotten me a few weekend dates :)…. But I’ll be in Paris for the foreseeable future, so I keep on running.
Later that afternoon: I get home from my jog, grab a lightning quick shower & finish packing for my trip. First and foremost, I need to feel relaxed & comfortable on the plane, as I’ll be squished in an economy seat for the next 10+ hours. So I go right for my full length DUSTYs and MADDIE hoodie, so at least I know I’ll be comfy, even if we have to chomp on stale pretzels while circling the tarmac for a few hours.
Tuesday Night: flying over the Atlantic, snuggled in my splits gear, I am shockingly able to get some sleep, pulling my hood up over my head to drown out my neighbor’s laptop which is simultaneously playing ‘snoop dog’ AND ‘bridesmaids’
Later that night (Paris Time): I land in Paris & know I have to head out into the chilling zero degree night to enjoy the Paris nightlife with my girlfriends, who have the luxury of prep-time in their hotel. As for me, I sprint into the ladies room & pull out my HELENA V-back and BAILEY capris,… I pair it with some leather boots and of course a winter coat (living in LA, I had to borrow this from my NYC sister), and BAM!! I’m ready to hit the town!! .
From yoga, to teaching, to handstanding, to flying oversees, to dancing my way around the most fashionable city in the World…. My splits allows me to do it ALL… while hardly breaking a sweat! ☺
