I’ve made a new commitment to myself to get more serious about my bone health so I’m lifting some light weights, using resistance bands, and
dragging myself going out for a long walk every morning. My old gear was just depressing so I’ve updated it and am gearing up to get fit with Zella.
This post is sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle.
I’ve been a fan of Nordstrom House brands for as long as I remember and adding them to my wardrobe long before I knew they were made by Nordstrom. I’m excited to collaborate with them again, this time, with their athletic wear. Public access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today!
I like to look polished and pulled together no matter what my day has in store. So with my new commitment to getting in better shape, I decided it was high time to upgrade my activewear and Zella was the perfect place to start. The activewear department has taken over a huge section in my store so I’m not alone in my goal to increase my fitness activities.
The first “heck yeah”, this is coming home with me was these breezy wide-leg pants which I’ve worn around town with a cute top and sandals because they’re adorable and so comfy. I’ll get some pictures soon.
This jacket is very thin, lightweight, and roomy. It has elastic at the wrists and a bungee cord adjustment at the back waist so you can snug it in for a more body-conscious fit. It’s sized from 00-16W, I am wearing a small, which is plenty roomy.
What’s also cool about this jacket is that it’s so lightweight you can stuff the entire thing into the small pocket into the back and stow it in your bag or just hang it from the loop.
Get fit with Zella
For a walk/light jog around the seawall last weekend I wore these flattering joggers and the twist front top. The twist front top comes in 4 colors size XXS-14W. I think it runs large so I went down to an XS. I’m a big fan of tops that have some shaping and this little twist front is perfect. The joggers are in a woven fabric that breathes so you don’t overheat. They come in 4 colors sized XS-16W and have a nice high rise.
The joggers have a stitched front seam and side panels that slim the look of your leg. The side pockets are a huge hit for me plus they have a hidden inside pocket for you to store your house key, card, or some cash when dashing about.
Here’s more Zella that caught my eye… many of which are marked down for the Anniversary Sale. If the site says they are sold out, be sure to check for your size because many are still available!
This Cozy Wrap Jacket is sold out in my size (plus size here) in the Ivory Dove so I will be haunting the site, hoping to snag it if they restock…I will keep you posted. It is really amazing in person.
I am in love with these sneakers! They have a knit top that gives where I need it to, especially over my bunion so it doesn’t put pressure on it. They also feel cooler than a leather sneaker and are super flexible. They have a removable cushioned insole so you can add your own custom orthotics and they have a rounded heel that’s designed specifically for the shape of a woman’s foot. Their special foam sole bounces and absorbs shock so they’re a delight to wear.
In April, Nordstrom added a new brand to their lineup called, Open Edit which has apparel, shoes, jewelry, and accessories for women, men, and kids in sizes XXS-3X. The first collection is focused on sustainability in organic cotton and recycled fabrics in trend-forward shapes…so keep your eye out for them, I am. I’ve already ordered this pullover in Beige Oatmeal and have my eye on some others here:
As always, Nordstrom’s customer service can’t be beaten. They have free shipping and returns, always, which is a big deal to me. You can earn points and rewards by joining the Nordy club (sign up free here) which helps you qualify for early access to the Anniversary Sale, plus you earn notes to spend on future purchases. They have free alterations, curbside pickup, beauty and style workshops.
You can also apply for a Nordstrom credit card here, and earn 2 points for every net dollar you spend at Nordstrom. I have a Nordstrom Visa card which earns me enough points to treat myself to something special every year. If you sign up now, you can go a long way to getting early access for next year.
Have you upgraded your athletic wear lately?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
