A couple of weeks ago, I participated in a fantastic mother-daughter day out with my 11-year-old daughter, Mallory. She is such a great kiddo, and we get so little time to spend together without the other kids. It’s challenging to grow up as the twin of a special needs kid, as you can imagine – but she is the sweetest, most kind-hearted girl you’d ever want to be around. So I was super excited to have a chance to spend some time with her. We went to Denver’s Soybu Flagship Store in Greenwood Village, right next to Trader Joe’s. Soybu makes amazingly soft activewear for yoga and for just life in general. Their yoga pants have a reputation for making your booty look great, and their maxi-dresses are some of the most flattering I have ever seen. I’ve been in their store before and was quite familiar with their beautifully made line of clothes, but this was the first time for me and Mallory both doing actual yoga. We were a little apprehensive! Here we are along with some of my friends, Daria of Mom in Management, and Suzanne of Crunchy Green Mom. They brought their daughters along too, and we had so much fun! (Watch for giveaways of great Soybu merchandise from them too!)
Mallory was a natural at yoga. I was not. It’s funny, and by funny I mean not funny at all, how bendy you are when you’re young and how that completely goes away when you hit forty. I was also super worried about hurting my knee, so I modified practically every pose we were instructed to do. Still, I really enjoyed it. I think yoga is something I could get into. It certainly does seem to be relaxing.
After we finished our savasanas, we got to check out Gracie, the new clothing line at Soybu for young girls. My daughters don’t do much yoga, but they do run track and play basketball, and they pretty much live in activewear. The Gracie line features super soft and comfortable tops and bottoms, along with sweaters, coats, and hoodies. My Mallory instantly fell in love with this darling outfit:
This is the Marin Tunic with matching shorts and headband from the Gracie line. Mallory looooved the shorts, but I wish she would’ve picked the capris. Next time!
