Barre to Brunch

Beyond Yoga  leggings c/o Pure Barre Wilmington, Alo extreme racer tank c/o Pure Parre Wilmington, F21 sports bra, Pure Barre socks, side zip tunic (I sized up for an oversized look | also love this one), Tory Burch boots

Here's the dilemna - you want to hit the early morning Pure Barre class but your girlfriends have planned for a nice brunch right after the class ends, and you know they'll all look adorable. Or you head to the evening class after work and your guy calls to meet you for dinner. You're in workout clothes - so what to wear? So it's not a huge dilemna, but it's nice to feel cute and atmosphere-appropriate no matter wher eyou are, and that's where these incredible Beyond Yoga leggings come in. I love how stylish they are -- and they can take me straight from barre to brunch or even barre to the bar. They are seriousy the most comfortable leggings I've ever owned - and they fit perfectly to get me through an intense barre class. I paired the leggings with an Alo top for class and a side zip tunic sweater to throw on after. I love these pieces because they layer so easily -- add in sticky socks for class and Tory Burch boots for after and I'm all set.

If you keep up with me on Instagram (@southernstyleblog) or Snapchat (zellebrown), you probably know I've been taking classes at Pure Barre Wilmington for just about two months. I decided to go randomly one day - I needed to workout but didn't feel like my normal routine so I signed up online. The first class was so hard and I was sore for days, but I loved my teacher and felt like I had finally found a workout I could stick with, so I immediately signed up for a month of unlimited class. As of now, I'm averaging between 3-4 classes per week, but after my schedule calms down in the new year, I'm hoping to step it up to 5 or 6. I can already tell a difference in my strength, so the biggest thing now is revamping my diet to match the time I'm putting in at Pure Barre (aka, toning down the cookie cake and mashed potatoes) 

Sisters Katelyn and Alex opened the Wilmington location when they saw a need for a barre studio. Both had fallen in love with the barre technique in Raleigh and thought for sure that Wilmington had a studio - when realizing that one didn't exist, they immediately looked into franchise opportunities, and the rest is history. P.S. Pure Barre Wilm has a #PurePup named Laney and she's seriously the cutest - follow her on Instagram! I'm also excited to partner with Pure Barre Wilmington for another fab giveaway! We're giving away an Alo tank just like this one + a Circle P necklace. Enter to win!

A huge thank you to Pure Barre Wilmington for sponsoring this post. Excited to be a part of the PB fam!
