Brilliant: The Coolest Concept in Workout Gear

I stopped into the brand new Athleta store on Lincoln Road the other day to pick up a few things to wear for the big Summer Solstice event on Saturday, with free yoga and grand opening celebration afterward at the store (deets here), where I’ll be around to help you put workout looks together. The store is awesome, there’s everything from workout gear to bikinis (that can also double as workout gear), as well as cute, comfy daywear options.

And here’s the best part …

If you buy it and you don’t love it, you can return it. Because how many sports bras have you bought that halfway through yoga wind up around your neck instead of, well, where they were supposed to stay put? So without tags, already worn—doesn’t matter. If it’s not working for you, simply return it. What a brilliant concept.

Reds, blues, greens, whites—I had a blast shopping the colorful selections. In the end, I settled on a great High Dive bikini top that I can wear as a yoga top pre-swim and bikini top after and a great pair of Prisma Stride Capris with an almost snakes-skin pattern. I also locked down my look for the big event on Saturday. But you’ll have to wait to see that one. 

Hope to see you there. With Cat (one of my favorite yoga teachers) leading the class, it’s going to be awesome. Trust me on this one.
