barre to bar in Carbon38

September 29, 2015

Happy humpday, party people! Don't worry...I'll never say that again. But really though, I have been in a legit  s l u m p  this week due to the gloomy rainy rotten awful less than stellar weather plaguing the Carolinas and figured some midweek motivation might turn my seasonal affective disorder frown upside down. Someone, somewhere once said, 'when in doubt- sweat it out,' an uber motivational mantra for sure. My motto, however, has always been...'when all else fails- look good.' Amiright?! But lezbehonest- me sweating usually occurs in a pair of loose running shorts and one of my husband's collegiate tees looking like something a stray cat leaves on your porch in exchange for some Meow Mix and milk. Merging the two schools of thought ('put together' + perspiring) has posed quite the predicament for me. Until now. 

I was recently introduced to an active wear site that speaks to my Mara Hoffman, Mary Katrantzou print loving self and perfectly combines "just left the gym" with "jet-setting." CARBON 38 is hand's down (and downward dog's down) THE ultimate online destination for all things feminine and fitness. 

These Mara Hoffman leggings and MICHI top were so fun and flattering to wear that I felt inspired to pre-enroll at a local barre studio! Lawd knows if something sucks in my stomach and comes in multiple patterns- other people need to see it! Until then, I've been utilizing the top and the bottoms for everything from actual exercise to running errands to dinner dates. Or... as I like to call it-  Bar Hopping>> BARRE to BARISTA to BAR. Don't believe me? See how I wore these super versatile pieces from Carbon 38 from morning all the way to martinis...

  1. This is amazing! Seriously love it all. You look FAB!

  2. You look seriously amazing - so so so beautiful! I want that entire fitness outfit!

  3. With regular workouts I have made my personality good and body very healthy. I am a fashion lover and always go with the designer stuff for my workout sessions. Had got the Adidas running shoes and now thinking to purchase Nike shoes along with running bare clothing. Very impressed with the quality!
