Lets be real. The cure for the rainy day blues is hunkering down with your favourite Netflix show and a cuppa joe. The yoga pants are a given – being a vancouverite and all. I’m sure Whitehorse has its fair share of yoga-pant-wearers but it seems to be a sort of epidemic on the streets of Vancouver (I’m not complaining).
My collection of yoga pants is nothing to be scoffed at – after spending hundreds of dollars at places like Lulu Lemon and Aritzia. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving and loyal to my Lulus because they are truly made to last but I couldn’t help wondering if there was something cheaper out there.
I’m a bit of a thrift store junkie but used yoga pants seem – to put it lightly – nasty. So I looked and tried on tights all over town, from H&M to smaller boutiques in Vancouver. Little did I know that I would find my favourite tights where I spend most of my days – Unity! after trying these babies on I knew they were mine. They haeven everything I look for in a pair of tights – higher waist to pull over my pudge, not see-through (duh), soft fabric, and the booty was poppin’. These were just the regular tights I tried, not the seasonal. In the winter we get fleece lined leggings. I never thought I would say this but I cannot wait for it to get cold again so I can get myself a pair of those.
Tights problem solved, tea in hand from our favourite guys at Bean Around the World Lower Lonsdale, now what to watch on Netflix?
Until next time,
