The Olympics are Coming!

As the Olivia Newton-John song goes……….Let’s Get Physical!!!

World class athletes will be competing for a gold medal in the London Olympics and the Opening Ceremony will be held Friday, July 27th. Now is the perfect time to think about our own fitness and our work out clothes! Exercise is a great way to make new friends, keep up with the ones you already have, or spend time with that special person in your life. Whether you’re playing tennis, golf, or going to the gym, feeling comfortable and confident in your clothes is a great morale boost!

Stella McCartney has been designing tennis clothes for Adidas which are available at Tennis Warehouse online. Love the bold color blocked designs! The shipping is free with a $75 purchase. Stella McCartney is the designer for Britain’s Olympic Athlete’s uniforms and has dressed players at Wimbledon and the French Open.

If golf is your game, then a trip to PGA Tour Superstore will feel like you’ve arrived in golf heaven! The store carries tons of brands and styles so you’ll be sure to find the most flattering outfit for your body type! This “Blue Hills” skort is made by Calloway Golf.

 

Yoga and fitness fanatics of all types have an obsession with Athleta and Lululemon. Both have online sales and carry clothing for all types of activities. There is a Lululemon store at the Shops Around Lenox while Athleta is coming to Atlantic Station and the new Avalon in Alpharetta.

This turquoise tank from Athleta would be great for all sports or just to be comfortable around the house. For the hikers or outdoorsy types, REI near Perimeter Mall has what you need, like this very supportive sports bra. Remember, proper support can make you look 10 pounds lighter!!

And, who doesn’t want that?!!!    Do you have a favorite place to buy fitness clothes? Let me know!!!

GO TEAM USA!!!

 

 

 

 

Summer is Here!

School’s Out and…. it’s Time for FUN in the SUN!!!

Chill out and relax a little….

it’s summer, so grab your bathing suit and head to the lake, the beach or the neighborhood pool! The May issue of LUCKY magazine features four swim suit trends for the summer…….

Tropical… like this fabric from one of my favorite bathing suit companies, Tara Grinna. Even OPRAH magazine has professed their LOVE for the company and this style specifically! Ok, they are not cheap but very well made, available in lots of styles and the fit is Fantastic! Tara Grinna has great options from bikinis to tankini’s that perfectly fit busty ladies.

Stripes… in this chic little bikini from J. Crew that’s available online only. Remember, wearing stripes in a suit (not this tiny bikini!) can magically define or camouflage, depending on the style and placement ….and who doesn’t want that?!!!

 

Digital Prints… are everywhere, like this bathing suit from Land’s End which can be found at Land’s End inside Sears stores. If you order on line or from the catalog, and it doesn’t work, you can return to the store and save the shipping fee.

There are lots of options so you can put together your best individualized style, whether it’s in regular, petite, plus size, long, mastectomy, even up to DDD cup!

 

Old Hollywood Glam… to accentuate your curves, go for a one piece swimdress with a ruched front panel that will give you a flattering fit like this La Blanca suit from Macy’s in a rich royal blue. You’ll feel self confident in the vacation photos. What a relief that is!!!

 

Now you’re in your fabulous swim suit and you’re looking for the perfect cover up, aren’t you? My last tip is another favorite, Barbara Gerwit tunics, sold online or in specialty stores. They are adorable, made in lots of fabrics and beautiful colors like this one with beading…. and worth every penny!
