Even though it doesn’t mean much for Southern California weather, I absolutely adore fall. It’s my favorite time to go hiking. Honestly, even though it’s totally necessary most days (or the 112 degree days) of summer, hiking in very short shorts always weirds me out (hi snakes, critters, spiders, brush, thorns and everything else in between!) and I always seem to be caught in something a little too big for me, with lots of flowy flaws for nature-times. So it was the perfect time to pick up some fall friendly yoga and hiking gear – something longer than shorts but shorter than pants – to keep me cool, as well as calm and collected during my favorite exercise with Raelie.
You can check out the video I shot in my Jewel Toned to see how the street smart biker shorts wear during my recent hike.
Jewel Toned is shapewear made for every day. Also based in LA, I absolutely love this go-getting brand. Every single piece is designed to be worn on the outside (ok… maybe not the panties? 😉 ) It hugs curves perfectly while also “tucking in” undesirable areas. These bike shorts are a new yoga staple for me. Besides the cute design, butt hugging curves and the fact that they’re totally comfortable, these shorts don’t give you the dreaded cameltoe, which means these forward thinking women really have their shiz together. No chance of embarrassment – just you hiking, running, walking, jogging, yoga-ing with your perfect self.
At first I topped it off with a long sleeved, Quad-Tiger flowy box top from Wildlife Works – but it’s still a little too warm here for those! I managed to get a few photos in it, though, which is amazing because Wildlife Works is one of my favorite brands of all time. Go check out all the awesome work they do through REDD+ and their incredible humanitarian efforts to bring not just awareness, but to make better solutions to poverty and conservation, as well as create jobs. The company also finances the development of small businesses such as an eco-clothing factory, and sustainable charcoal production and distribution.
She sure does make some silly faces. 🙂
I call this one “kiss the puppy pose”.
Second, they’re eco-friendly themselves.
Third, they’re run by women. 3 sisters in fact.
Either getting into or out of tree-pose. . . Raelie is in “catch me if you can” pose.
Whats your favorite thing about fall? Who do you turn to for yoga gear and shape wear? I’d love to hear in the comments!
Happy Autumn everyone!
