There’s a hot new collaboration that has hit the high street and you’ll know all about it if you attended my Pilates and cocktails event last week which is still giving me a buzz when I think about it. It was so lovely to meet lots of you, teach you Pilates and introduce you to this stylish collection. J. Crew and New Balance have teamed up and created activewear to die for. The colours pop, the designs are arty and the cuts are stylish. I’m in love and my Christmas wish list is filling up with it…
When it comes to activewear I like to look good, feel good and perform well in it. I want to feel just as comfortable at my favourite cafes in my outfit as I do lunging in the studio and the pieces I have from this collection certainly tick that box. Everyone as the event loved the stripy tank top the most and I can’t tell you how comfy and soft the fabric is too. Stripes instantly make me feel on trend and I love the cut of the tank which really highlights your shoulders and neck line elegantly.
The other top from this collection I have is the free flow tank in colour cerise. Another really elegant cut and made from moisture-wicking NB Dry fabric that means so you can hit the shops or brunch with friends after a workout without a worry. I love a slightly loose fit for days I’m feeling a little bloated too. Yes even Pilates instructors have those days.
Some of my other faves in this collection include; the essential wind breaker jacket, seen above, it’s just so cool teamed with leggings or jeans and perfect for winter walks bracing the elements. I also love a long sleeve to teach and do Pilates in the winter so the long sleeve colour block crop top is a must. The higher neck makes this really fashion forward and also keeps the neck area covered for an outdoor workout.
It was so fabulous to partner with J Crew and teach Pilates in their Regents Street store last week as part of the launch. I was so amazed at how incredible everyone was at Pilates and we worked on some challenging moves to make sure we really deserved those post Pilates cocktails. Thank you to everyone that attended. If you didn’t make it to the event then make sure you pop in and head upstairs to see and most importantly feel the collection yourself!
If you’re a coffee shop post spin class kind of gal then this collection is your dream!
Love, Lottie x
