So yesterday, with a couple of gift cards to burn, I had a bit of a shopping spree at Lorna Jane in Palm Desert. A little explanation (and disclosure) first.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to participate in a social media campaign for Lorna Jane. The topic was Fit Fall Fashion and selected bloggers shared some of the new items that were available on social media and our blogs. (Here’s my post!) We were compensated with a Lorna Jane gift card, plus we were given an incentive: At the end of the week, Lorna Jane and Fit Approach would select the influencer that they felt was the most creative and they would win another gift card! I decided to take the challenge.
To that end, I visited the new Lorna Jane store in Palm Desert. With the assistance of the great staff there, I tried on several outfits, took lots of pictures, and using myself as the model, posted lots of fun pictures on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I followed that up with a blog post wrapping everything up and telling about my experience, sharing more of the beautiful fall fashion items that I got to try on.
I really enjoyed the whole experience. I love Lorna Jane and her philosophy of Move, Nourish, Believe, and I love the quality and feel of all the clothing that I have tried on. The staff was amazing; helpful and kind (as they have been in every Lorna Jane Active store I’ve been to), and I’m so happy that “fall fashion” doesn’t mean dull, winter colors. Just take a look at the pictures above and you’ll see that Lorna Jane celebrates fall with bright florals and patterns that can actually pull you out of your cold weather doldrums.
So anyway, as you may have guessed by now, I won! Now I had two gift cards for Lorna Jane. I received my second card in the mail on Monday, and on Tuesday I found time to stop by the store.
I kind of had an idea what I wanted to buy, though when I arrived at the shop I noticed that there even more beautiful fall fashion items on the racks. I was told that Lorna Jane has something like 1,600 new items per month! (not swearing by that number, but it was a lot!)
Because my time was limited, and I really loved what I’d tried on before, I had walked into the store planning to purchase one of my earlier outfits. But now I was torn! So many pretty new things (including the tights above, which I really love but don’t think I’m fast enough to pull off anymore).
When I finally left the shop I posted a little teaser on Instagram (are you following me?)
So, I obviously had a great time shopping at Lorna Jane. Are you curious about what I finally decided on? Well, I debuted my outfit at yoga today (thanks to my husband for the pre-class photo shoot).
In the end I selected the Prom Queen tights, along with the Lana Excel tank in Neon Tangerine, my favorite of the outfits I tried on a few weeks ago. I love the bright colors, the fit, and the tights make my legs look amazing! And I love the detail on the back of the Excel tank.
Today’s savasana was with legs up the wall. It was hard to close my eyes and relax. I wanted to look at my tights! (Kidding actually, and I took this photo at home, not in the middle of class, by the way).
Thanks you Lorna Jane and Fit Approach! I had a great time shopping and love what I purchased.
Do you like bright colors in your workout clothes? What’s your favorite outfit from the photos above? Who do you know that could rock those “Catch Me If You Can” tights?
