Fashion Friday: Onzie’s Fall Line

Its that time of year again folks, Fall! Now while it may not mean cooler temperatures for everyone (its still upper 90’s here in Texas) it does mean companies are releasing their fall lines, and no one does fall better than Onzie. I just adore this company, they’re 100% made in the USA which is difficult to find these days, their designs are so beautiful its impossible to be in a bad mood while wearing them, and the obscenely comfortable fabric choices and cuts are out of this world!

This year Onzie’s fall line is inspired by “Mystic Metal” and this resulted in me wanting one of everything in every print! Honestly I’ve never had a more difficult time narrowing down what I wanted. The metallic finishes and rich pigments really create something special.

Eventually I was able to make a firm decision and I’m thrilled with my two different looks that I get to share with you! They’re both a little different than my usual style and I’m so thrilled I decided to branch out and try something new!

Look 1.059006990621074306720675PicMonkey Collage07100611Sweatshirt: Onzie A sweatshirt cut, onzie’s ultra lightweight fast drying free flow jersey material, and stunning “Chicago” print combine perfectly to create the ideal fall workout top. Whether you live in a cooler climate or you’re still putting up with the heat like me this top is still an excellent choice, the longer sleeves will fight the cold, but the fabric still breathe and is quick drying for all that sweating you’ll be doing during your yoga practice or all the sweating you do just by living somewhere warm ;).

Bra top: Onzie I was a little concerned this particular cut wasn’t going to be very flattering on me, that the back might result in some unsightly back fat rolls or something due to the cage like structure, I’m happy to report not only did that not happen, but the cut is in fact fabulously flattering and ever so feminine, I already want it in more prints. Onzie really understands how to dress everyone’s shape. Their bra tops keep you supported but they’re far more gentle than traditional high impact sports bras. Hooray for not worrying about falling out of your top, and hooray for not wearing something with a comfort level comparable to that of Kevlar.

Capri’s: Onzie I have no idea why it took me so long to finally get a pair of capris from Onzie. I swear capri yoga pants will now forever be in my rotation. They are sooooo comfortable and actually flatter my super short legs. These capris are the perfect option when you want bottoms that are a little cooler but don’t feel like showing quite as much skin by wearing shorts, I have found a new favorite you guys.

Look 2.

07950811standing forward fold08650893091208810819Bra top: Onzie Seriously I need more of these babies. I’m in love.

Leggings: Onzie How fun are these leggings? The royal navy blue and mesh tuxedo stripe really take something as basic as leggings over the top turn them into one heck of a fashion statement. It never ceases to amaze me how Onzie can take something that I consider “risky” to wear and turn it into something that makes me feel unstoppable. Leggings can quite literally be the most unflattering garment a lady wears in her lifetime, but through quality construction, brilliant color choices, and supportive fabric Onzie beats the odds. I also want to stress that while yes I preach on and on about how supportive Onzie pieces are, they are equally comfortable and breathable. Its like wearing a second skin, your movement isn’t the least bit restricted, the clothes move with you, which is so vital in yoga. I mean does anyone want to be tugging at their clothes while their trying to not fall over in standing bow pose? No.

All in all I couldn’t be more thrilled with my Onzie gear and highly recommend you check them out, this new fall line is one of their best yet! Working out isn’t always fun but that doesn’t mean your clothes shouldn’t be fun either. Happy Friday my loves! Hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did.

Fashion Friday Featuring Onzie’s Summer Line

You guy’s I have been anxiously waiting to share this post with you all! I’m so excited about Onzie’s new Summer line.

I tend to be the kind of person who samples all sorts of products and I wouldn’t really consider myself a strict brand loyalist, except when it comes to Onzie. How did they earn my loyalty you may ask? Well Onzie is a 100% made in the USA company which will always get me onboard, their clothes are stunningly beautiful, with their unique structure and effortlessly chic prints and colors, and their clothes use Free Flow Fabric Technology which means your garments move with you, breathe with you, and keep you supported. The best way I know how to describe it is like a second skin! What more could you possibly want in athletic gear? Onzie is my yoga clothing of choice, but it isn’t limited to the yoga mat, Onzie clothes can be worn while running, biking, hooping, pilates, and even during swimming and surfing because of its fast drying technology and the fact that it can be worn in both salt water and chlorine. Really you could replace your entire wardrobe with Onzie if we’re being honest 😉

I loved this company ever since I first came across them (past features on Onzie can be read here) but I have to say I’ve grown even more in love as time has gone on. While I was in California a couple months back I actually had the honor of doing a little tour of Onzie and met the people who truly makes this company great! The minute I walked through the doors I felt incandescently happy! Everyone was so incredibly kind and I’ve never seen so many smiling faces on people who were working haha. Of course it makes complete sense that their clothes are as beautiful as they are when see the beautiful souls of the people behind the scenes. I’m now more loyal than ever, give me a great quality product and wonderful people who run the show and you will earn my love and loyalty.

Sun Ray Bra Top: Onzie All hail the Onzie sports bra! I’ve tried on many a sports bras and have yet to find one more comfortable and supportive than a Onzie, also can we take a moment to appreciate how gorgeous the back detailing is? Not only does this detailing give a fabulous visual but I also felt like this particular design gave even more support, so if you need a little more strength in your yoga tops you can not go wrong in picking the Sun Ray.

Full Coverage Short: Onzie Quite literally the best yoga shorts I have ever worn! They don’t roll or ride up but they manage to still move with you, the cut is incredibly figure flattering, and the Sedona print is just so lively and happy! Why can’t all shorts be as perfect as Onzie shorts? Heck maybe I’ll take my own advice and just have a wardrobe of Onzie 😉

Pretty happy about the pockets 😉

Sun Ray Bra Top: Onzie

Pure Vida Tank: Onzie I have a feeling  this tank top is going to be worn quite a bit this summer. When the average temp during our Texas summers is usually about 105 you can bet I am going to be beyond thankful this tank is feather light, fast drying (sweat marks are not sexy), and the back detailing is more than decorative, it will help keep me cool!

Gypsy Pant: Onzie Waist band that folds over, pockets, stunning print, and the just the right touch of harem style without going full fledged MC Hammer. These pants are so cute I will not restrict them to just athletic wear! From everyday outings, hangouts with friends, to travel Onzie is always there to keep you cool and comfy but also incredibly stylish!

I hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did and that you get yourself some Onzie! Happy Friday and Happy Independence day!

Fashion Friday Onzie Spring Collection

This week I have quite the treat for you, two looks in one post! I couldn’t contain my excitement, I absolutely had to share the brilliance that is the Onzie spring collection.

For those of you who don’t know, Onzie is my all time favorite yoga apparel brands. They are 100% made in the USA, their clothes always come in the most flattering cuts and colors, and these beautiful clothes just so happen to be the most comfortable clothes you will ever have the fortune to wear. The last thing you want to deal with is constricting/uncomfortable clothes while trying to workout, and clearly the people of Onzie understand this. Their clothes move and breathe with you, its like a second skin…a super beautiful second skin. If you have been searching for great yoga gear your journey has ended, once you have experienced Onzie nothing else will compare. Start your addiction here 😉 http://www.onzie.com/

Criss Cross Bra top: Onzie I love this top, it is the perfect low impact sports bra, it keeps you decent, but is doesn’t squish you into oblivion like so many sports bras can. Plus its beautiful! I’d like one in each print please 😉

Black open back top: I also got this from Onzie but it’s from their fall collection so its no longer available. However I happen to think this top works beautifully for spring. I love the sexy open back details.

Pure Vida Pant: Onzie Oh my goodness! Are these not the most beautiful pants you have ever seen? They are bohemian perfection, you can either wear them untied for an extra flowy romantic look, or tie them at the akles for a fun harem like appearance. These pants are so beautiful I will be wearing them outside of my yoga practice too!

Flower Clip: Claires

Bustier Top: Onzie Oh yes floral, polka dots, and comfort this top has everything I could possibly want out of a sports bra! Its the perfect balance of girly and playful, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it!

High Waist Shorts: Onzie Because why should I have to choose between being a yogi and being a pinup? I cannot even express how much I love these bottoms. Their construction is perfect, they glorify your shape all the while being flattering to what most people consider their number one problem area. Plus I’ve never been able to turn down a polka dot print 😉

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you get yourself some Onzie gear as soon as possible. Happy Friday my lovelies!

Fashion Friday Featuring Onzie’s Fall Line

Hey guys sorry I didn’t post a Fashion Friday last week. I was feeling awful. But I am feeling much better now, I think part of my feeling better is due to the fact that I am in love.

They are so sweet and helpful you feel like you’re talking to a friend not a business person. So I encourage you to show this company some love and I hope you all have an incredible weekend!

Fashion Friday Featuring Ellie

This week I am featuring Ellie on the blog, an awesome athletic clothing company for women.

Here’s the link to the complete outfit I am wearing http://www.ellie.com/outfit/56 now I must say I’m still getting used to my “new body” after I lost so much weight, so a lot of the time I’m not certain about sizing, but Ellie’s size chart is spot on (some size charts are way off, talk about frustrating) but I ended up being a small in my top and and medium in pants just like the chart said. These clothes are so great, working out can be hard enough so having something beautiful to wear that is supportive and flexible enough for ones yoga practice is wonderful. I highly encourage you to get some Ellie gear for yourself.
