Thursday Threads - Zen and the Art of Fashion Maintenance

As part of my reasonably-close-to-New-Year's resolution to get back into a more active routine (winter forced my walking routine into hibernation - I'm just not dedicated enough to go out in the cold), I have recently taken up yoga. I'm just doing it in the privacy of my own home, at the guidance of some great videos I've found (thank you, internet), with no one around to laugh at me when my warrior wobbles or my down dog can't get up. I've even been known to do it in my pajamas. Obviously, I'm not too worried about how I look.

That being said, I still wouldn't mind having some of the awesome yoga goodies I found on Etsy. Like this fantastic hoodie from FunkyQuail:

This makes me want to try and combine knitting and yoga. Maybe I could knit it lotus pose? Or throw some meditation in and chant while I knit - knit, om, purl, om...? I don't know. What I do know is I love this shirt. And it looks like it would be just as comfy during yoga practice as it would be sitting on the couch knitting your way to Nirvana.

And while we're on the subject of comfy, check out these pants from Ahpeele:

Don't these look like they'd be just wonderful to wear? And they just look wonderful too! I love that vine-y, leafy pattern. And the colors - calm and subdued. Just like yoga pants ought to be.

But as much as I love these, I have to admit, I actually prefer to wear leggings for my yoga practice. And I'd be hard pressed to find a lovelier pair than these from prettypennydesigns:

These, too, look super-comfy. And I just love the little birdies! But if birds aren't your thing, Pretty Penny has some other awesome leggings too. So be sure to check 'em out!

Me? I'm going to go enjoy my inner tranquility. And maybe a cup of coffee. It's cold!


  1. Thanks for the shout out! Love, Funky Q

  2. I could never get away with the leggings, but love the hoodie! Thanks for sharing~

  3. the leggings are real cute. Would look kinda funny on me though... Great that you're getting your groove back!
