Getting Active with Boden

First off, I know what you’re thinking…she’s posting an outfit in her yoga pants!  Isn’t Get Your Pretty On supposed to be about getting out of our yoga pants?

Well, the reality is I still spend A LOT of time in mine.  My goal each day is to work out by 10:00 a.m. so that I can shower and get ready for the rest of my day.  But that leaves me with four hours every morning where I’m wearing my yoga clothes.  That’s still a lot of my day spent in them so they need to be comfortable, hold up well wash after wash and look cute too!

When Boden asked me to try out their new active wear collection, I was so excited.  If you’ve ever joined me for a Style Me Pretty Challenge, you already know that I adore all things Boden and their classic British style.

Boden’s new active wear collection is just as high quality and fashionable as you’d expect.  The thickness of the material is perfect.  No thin, flimsy yoga pants here!  The pieces come in great prints and colors too.  My golden retriever Bailey definitely approves.  New yoga clothes for mommy equal more walks for Bailey.  🙂
