Retail therapy is part of recovery from an injury, right?
The good people at Vocalpoint and Dick’s must have known that I needed a pick me up after learning that running still wasn’t happening anytime soon, when they graciously sent me a gift card to check out the newly redesigned women’s section. I gladly headed to my local Dick’s to drown my sorrows in new workout gear. Spoiler alert – you can get some help with your own retail therapy at the bottom of the post!
While my running wardrobe is seriously stocked with all the right essentials, I have been lacking in yoga specific gear. It’s one of the activities I CAN do right now so I’m pouring my heart and soul into it. Sure I can wear my running capri’s and tanks, but it can be quite annoying to constantly fix your tank after every single down dog or inversion. I want something that stays in place and I don’t have to adjust it no matter how I twist, bind and get my OM on.
It had been awhile since I actually shopped for myself at Dick’s. And I was pleasantly surprised. The aisles had been widened and there were more outfit pairings throughout the women’s department. It made me want to actually look at the clothes. The CALIA line by Carrie Underwood and Lucy Activewear stood out to me. How come I never noticed their stuff before? Everything was so pretty and could easily go from the studio to running errands. Because let’s face it, I wear my workout gear everywhere even when I’m not working out.
I brought along my little “helpers” to test out the wide aisles and bigger fitting rooms. We no longer need the big bus stroller (thankfully), but I could definitely see how I’d have no problem managing the aisles with it.
So what did I get?
I fell in love with CALIA. I want every single piece! I wore the Keyhole Back Tank and Essential Capri’s to yoga class that very night I got it and I didn’t have to adjust anything through an hour worth of sun salutations and inversion practice. I’m really not a fan of patterned capri’s but I love the look of these. So cute!
And the Lucy tank? Same thing – it didn’t budge no matter which way I twisted and turned in class. I love the built in cups – no need for a sports bra underneath. It does have a zippered pocket in the back that would be great for stashing a key or gels if I was running in it, but I don’t think I’d like to go sports bra-less while running.
