STRIPE up your life!

2013 has arrived and I can't believe it! Everyone was in their sequins, glitter, and diamonds this new years eve. As much as I love those three things, bringing them into a workout room can be a little much! Although, if I'm being honest here, I do throw on a diamond clip or a sequin top (check out Bennerfit circuit 10) every so often but it's not necessarily your everyday workout attire. Its a beautiful day out (70 degrees in January) in Los Angeles today, so after I taught some classes, took class, walked the dogs, and ran a few errands, I decided to take a stroll around the corner from my place through my neighborhood shops. I popped into lululemon and gained inspiration for my January 2013 workout gear. STRIPES! I never thought that word would ever come out of my mouth but this past year I've really been digging horizontal stripes. Now ever since I can remember I was informed that horizontal stripes are THE most unflattering of all patterns. So for many years I stayed away from the dreadful horizontal stripe, until early last year when my mind began to change. I slowly started falling for the stripes, every kind of stripe be it horizontal, vertical, diagonal, colorful, you name it I've been filling my closet full of them. In lululemon today the stripes were everywhere, from their pants, tops, jackets, sports bras, and they even had striped scarfs. I gave in and treated myself to a 2013 sweatshirt and I can't wait to wear it!

So this new year maybe try some stripes. You could start with something as simple as socks and work your way to something a bit more bold like a top or a pant.

This January add some STRIPES in your life! Happy, happy new year Bennerfitters!
