Packing for 4th of July – Fashion Blog

What’s your favorite travel gear?

These days, packing is easy (not including my children, but for me) because the “in” thing, is “athleisure-wear”; meaning fitness apparel for every day life. it is comfortable, doesn’t wrinkle, and most of all stylish.   When picking out apparel for our boutique, I keep in mind every day life fashion as well as style. Can you drop the kids offs, go to barre, throw on a top and head to target? Or try this scenario; can you go to barre in your leggings and tank and throw on a flowey top and heels and head for a drink with a girlfriend?  As always here at Barre + Beyond, our goal is to empower you to be better every day through fitness and fashion.  As always, I want to hear from you, your requests and your needs.  See below and  take a look at how I am pack for my upcoming Fourth of July trip.

Pictured at the top are my absolute favorite; LOREN BRA by Splits 59. Its perfect for the barre workout and under tanks, dresses or any top. Comes in Black, grey and white.

Next, leggings! Not only to work out in but to go out and about too during the day and for dinners!!  My most comfy leggings are Margarita (super soft, stretchy and I always get compliments because each one is unique and handmade.  Then, of course, the Alo Moto Legging in light gray. We have one more left in stock so call us at 219-476-7117 if you would like a certain size.

Next, my favorite top to point out is the Ashby Tank by Splits59. It is long for the torso, comfortable and soft. It can be worn on its own or my favorite is as a layering piece because it is long. It is a staple travel piece, so try your on in boutique or Click HERE TO PURCHASE
