Trend Report: yoga pants with attitude

Yoga Pant Trends

Yoga pants. Comfy, cute and socially acceptable to wear to class and brunch alike. What’s not to love? While everyone should own a pair of classics, lately there’s been an explosion of fun and even outrageous yoga pants hitting the market. Here are a few of the big trends in the yoga pant world:

1 / Cut outs// Lorna Jane Dee-Core Pant

My personal favorite, the cut out pant, adds a little subtle sexy to your workout. The cut outs are probably there to help keep you cool though right? Totally functional I’m sure.

2 / Bold Prints //Athleta Diamond Superluxe Pant

Move over black and grey, prints are here in a big way. From subtle to outrageous you can find yoga pants in just about any color and pattern. These Athleta pants are particularly outrageous. Just be careful not too flow too quickly, or the person next to you might get dizzy.

3 / High Rise // Lululemon Wunder Under Pant

The high rise look is equal parts function and fashion. Gone are the days of having to pull up your pants between asanas, and the high waist gives you extra control and shape. Yes please!

4 / Fit and Flare // Lucy Perfect Core Pant

For those who like a little more room to breathe- or flow- in your yoga pants, the fit and flare are making a comeback. Thankfully I never threw my old ones away- living proof that you should hoard clothing until they come back in style. I kid. Kind of.

5 / Body Suits // Sweaty Betty Yoga Unitard

Last but not least we have the bodysuit- not for the faint of heart! I can’t say I plan on trying this trend but if your up for it I fully support your choice and will try not to stare if you are in the same class as me. “Aggressive” is the adjective that comes to mind. But hey, don’t knock it until you try it right?

namaste!

hello lovelies! Today I’m excited to talk about knobs! Totally weird I know, but don’t judge until you finish reading this. Because knobs are seriously awesome. They have got to be the quickest and most inexpensive way to give your furniture an face lift. Tired cabinets, dressers, drawers, you name it, new knobs to the rescue.

We are finally about fully furnished in our new(ish) place so I’m finally getting around to some finishing touches- like knobs. I will only post one love letter post to knobs on here don’t worry, you have my word. My main knob dilemma was with this cute white hutch in my dining room. I love the hutch itself, but didn’t love the silver oxidized hardware. Sort of boring, and didn’t match well with the gold and glass decor in the room. No bueno!

So I started the hunt for some glass knobs to match the door knobs in our house and class the place up a little. I started the hunt at a hardware store but they wanted like twenty bucks per knob! Anthropologie is another go to for me when I am looking for fun and unique knobs but the glass knobs they had were not the right size for the project. Amazon to the rescue (again and again). A few clicks and an Amazon prime day later my glass beauties arrived. A couple minutes later my hutch was transformed! Dun dun dun! Okay so it may not be major but I think it totally makes a difference :). The knobs were only $11 for a set of 5, link here. Total steal!

Ta da! Still looking for some glass pulls to replace the silver ones on the drawers. But at least we have progress!

Let’s talk about toilets..

Toilet Tank Top

.. okay maybe not toilets, but toilet toppers!  Toilet topper trays are a great way to spruce up your toilet with pretty things like candles or diffusers. They create a sturdy base for your decor so things don’t slide off and well, err take a swim. After some hunting I found a tray that was the perfect fit, but it was all white and well, a little boring for my taste.  Plus it had some yellow glue from the label that despite all the Goo be gone and elbow grease in the world would just not come off.

So I did a little searching and found some marble contact paper  to spice things up. If you haven’t used contact paper before, you’re welcome! It is seriously AWESOME you guys. So easy- just measure, cut, peel, stick, and transform. The stuff sticks to just about any surface and instantly changes the look completely. Did I mention the whole roll cost me seven bucks?

The contact paper I purchased came with an easy cutting guide on the back which made measuring a snap.

Then I just did a little peel and stick action and voila!

My little tray now has a marble finish that matches my bathroom counter. Now I just need to figure out what to do with the rest of my contact paper.. ideas welcomed!
