I was stopped in my tracks by Reformation’s recent “active collection” launch. I am loving the monochromatic looks (seen above) and particularly drawn to a head-to-toe dusty pink situation with these leggings and this sports bra, finished with a boxy (inexpensive) coordinated sweatshirt like this! (I’ll take the Chanel sneakers, too.) These high-rise bike shorts even turned my head, though I’m still partially scarred by the pair I bought and promptly returned last summer — I am super short and the proportions just looked wrong on me. (What’s a shortie to do?).
I’m also planning to buy some running shorts from Tracksmith. I have lived in their merino base layers and leggings when it is really cold outside and they just work. (Sizing note: this brand runs small and long. I am 5’0 and 100 lbs and I take a small in the leggings and an xs in the tops. The leggings are a good four inches too long but that doesn’t bother me in winter because I tuck my leggings into socks anyway.)
A few other fitness scores I’m eyeing:

P.P.S. What do you think about when you exercise? Do you ever hit the “flow” point?
P.P.P.S. Do you maintain any hobbies?
