Clearly you know I’m an adidas super fan as well as an ambassador, so how could I not announce this exciting drop, right? I’m particularly excited because normally I wear more sporty and classic styles from adidas’ fitness and athleisure collections, and this set feels refreshingly different.
My life before the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic hit the US was literally non-stop travel from December to early March. I definitely saw a lot of people at the airport wearing respirators and disinfecting their seats on the plane, but it really never occurred to me that soon we’d all be in a state of lockdown. The face masks, at the time, seemed a bit much to me. I was conscientiously using hand sanitizer and wiping down my seat too, but I was 100% clueless about what was to come next. And you know what? I’m thankful for my blissful ignorance…because who knows when I’ll be traveling next!
Well…in all fairness, ALL WOMEN are nominated and celebrated annually on March 8th which is International Women’s Day. BUT, every year I call out the women who are currently inspiring me, blowing my mind in real time and motivating me to be better. Thank you to adidas for sponsoring this feature on Mizzfit.com and being a leader in the movement to empower girls and women across the globe. These are the women that ignite the unstoppable feminine power inside of me.
In my opinion, it makes sense to go sporty in the Fall and Winter months because it’s so darn cold outside and just easier to get around when you’re not dealing with the hassle of heels. Lately, I’ve been sporting 4 looks inspired by a few key pieces that I got from adidas. Sometimes adding just a few things to your wardrobe can really spruce up what you’ve already got.
Lotus flower designs are constantly seen on yoga clothing and accessories and they always look the same. The flower is soft, subtle and BORING! adidas has taken the complete opposite approach and given the lotus flower a makeover. Actually, let's call it a RESURRECTION. The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport. The new Lotus Print collection by adidas Originals is urban, striking and feminine in a cool, unapologetic way. During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group. I had to smile and agree--can't help but love these pieces! The lotus flower in real life is exquisite. It 100% deserves a beautiful graphic representation. The reason yogis love this flower so much is because of its meaning and ties to Buddhism. The symbolism of the lotus is purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. In it's natural...
Dina Ivas is a yoga instructor at Equinox Fitness gyms in NYC. Lucky for me, she teaches at the location I belong to. Her classes are popular for their cardio component and twisty ab work. Dina has an infectious laugh and a penchant for fitness fashion. All of this naturally led me to FOLLOW her on her way to work. She detoured down the Highline and told me a bit about herself. "I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire where the most exciting thing to do was go to the mall, or get scorpion bowls at Grand China. I knew I needed more, so when I graduated BU and was offered a PR job in Times Square, I took it. I'd never been to New York but the pull was magnetic. I love the energy here, and, at least for now, I still love the grind." "Bold, bright, never boring. I truly feel that what you wear can have a direct effect on how you feel, so I try to dress happy." "I always thought you had to be edgy to attract people to your...
