My New Obsession: Athleta

Between Black Friday, Cyber Friday, to Christmas 2014, I gladly took advantage of the generous sales and used eBates where I could (wish all stores participate in eBates).  Anyone who is aware of Athleta’s regular prices especially would understand why I did.  Athleta creates great quality fitwear, but most of the prices are really steep… I guess that could be said of designer sportswear in general.  Remember that you don’t have to necessarily pay full price for good clothing or to build your wardrobe.  I feel no shame to admit that I have accumulated some great casual pieces at Target too; many I wear for yoga or to the gym.  Yayyy to double discounts and free shipping; I was able to purchase the awesome hooded sweater featured below at a much better price than I could have imagined!

Beachy Keen Coverup

Although we have entered into October, I’m still fondly reminiscing over the once warm weather and bright sunny evenings…  My favorite find for this summer was the Beachy Keen Coverup at Athleta.  Soft, lightweight, and beach/spa paisley pretty!  Alas they ran out of stock on the white and bali blue versions in my size so I finally settled on an asphalt (still, no big disappointment towards something so lovely).  Also light color clothing stains very easily too; bad for clumsy ol’ me.  This will always be a well-loved suitcase staple for my island getaways.

*Note: Compare to Beyond Yoga’s cute voile coverup.
