Happy 4th of July! (+eShakti Reader Discount)

red, white & blue 4th of July outfitWoop! One of my favorite weekends of the year is here! After I’m finished teaching this morning, I think Joe and I are going to drive down to Newport for the weekend. We’re really good at changing our minds last minute though, so who knows where we’ll end up. :)

red, white & blue 4th of July outfitI recently got a chance to try out eShakti, women’s online retailer that allows you to customize your clothing orders. Instead of just selecting a size, you enter your measurements, hem length preferences, style preferences, etc. and they’ll design your custom item specifically for you. I thought this skirt would be fun for summertime, and opted for a knee length so that I could pair it with a crop top (I suppose I’m too old to pull off a crop top with a mini skirt–gotta pick one or the other haha).

The check out and customization process was super easy, and my skirt fit perfectly when it arrived. I loved my experience with eShakti and am excited to be able to offer you all 10% off an order with them!

I’m coming at you with my final athleticwear brand feature a day early. I see ALO Yoga everywhere (on blogs and real life) and always make a mental note to look to the brand the next time I’m shopping for new workout gear. I love the color palettes and patterns they use.

Do you guys own any ALO gear? What do you think?
