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.

 

Here is look 1.

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. I am in love with Onzie’s new fall line! The prints, cuts, colors its all so perfect! You can check out their entire fall collection here http://www.theonzie.com/ and here are the goodies I received from Onzie

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you get yourself some Onzie gear. I cannot sing enough praises for Onzie, they are an all American made company which is very hard to find these days, the clothes are just as comfortable as they are beautiful, not to mention very well made, and their customer service is incredible. 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 Onzie

So in my most recent post I had said how yoga clothes are not worth sharing on Fashion Friday…Well the problem wasn’t the fact that they were yoga clothes, the problem was that they weren’t Onzie yoga attire. Seriously I have never seen such pretty activewear before. All of Onzie’s production, that means from knitting to photography, takes place in their Los Angeles facilities. It’s nice to know that there still are 100% USA made companies out there. Onzie was created by 20 year bikram yogi so you can be certain these clothes are just as functional as they are beautiful. You can find out more about this awesome company here http://www.theonzie.com/

Everything I am wearing is from Onzie but I will post the links to what particular products I am wearing.

Scoop back tank: http://www.theonzie.com/scoop-back-tank/ I honestly love this top so much I’ll probably wear it round town cause I absolutely adore the back detail.

Criss cross bra: http://www.theonzie.com/criss-cross-bra-top/ just a little side note this is the most comfortable sports bra I’ve ever worn! Its supportive but it doesn’t dig into your shoulders like so many sports bras do! So I would definitely encourage anyone on the hunt for the “perfect” sports bra to get this one.

Sport Short: http://www.theonzie.com/sport-short/ I got the floral print cause it’s so perfectly girly! These are also super comfortable.

Have a happy Friday everyone.

Fashion Friday (It’s May Right?)

Today’s post will be of my outfit yesterday. Normally I am complaining about the heat this time of year, but this is Texas where you can go from wanting snow cones one day to busting your winter coat out the next. We were experiencing quite the cold front, mid 40’s is quite a shock to system let me tell ya.  I wanted to look nice but still stay warm. Here is the look I came up with.

9071As you can see I am very much the model type 😉

Flats: Payless. I wear these a lot!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you are having nicer weather than we are 😉 Happy Friday.

So Glad I Found Yoga!

For those of you who don’t know I’ve lost a good bit of weight, I can recall seeing the dreaded scale read 178 when I was at my heaviest. Honestly it almost made me cry, I’m such a girl. As of today I have lost 28lbs *Sarah pats herself on the back*. I was never the “skinny girl” but wasn’t necessarily the “fat girl” either, I categorized myself as curvy and could stand to lose a bit of weight.

2011

Black was just about the only color I would wear.

I’ve always been a pretty healthy eater, lean meat, fruits, and veggies you know? But I was never consistent enough in my workouts I would be really dedicated at first, but never made it past 3 weeks. Well one day I was really upset (boy problems of course) so in order to clear my mind I decided to go for a walk, since I was livid the walk turned into basically a march, then a run. I had finally experienced the mindclearing powers of a run and was hooked after that! I kept jogging for several months, I would jog around the park and jog back home, and that is how I lost a good bit of weight to begin with. But I had to stop jogging at Doctors orders after I had a weird dizzy spell spaz episode. So I was bummed, I tried dancing to lose weight…didn’t care for it, also tried weights, liked it but after awhile it made my neck and shoulders hurt. So there I was wondering what to do, so I went on youtube and looked up yoga routines. Thank God I did, I found Tara Stiles and started following her videos and saw even quicker results than jogging gave me. I lost fat from running, but with yoga I am gaining muscle, improving my flexibility, and getting better balance, which for a klutz like me is incredible!

If this post seemed like endless bragging on my part well…it is haha. I’ve worked hard and I am proud of my accomplishments. The only person who can hold you back is you, get out of your own way and make things happen!
