London’s Sweaty Betty at Nordstrom

Since leaving the office behind, I’ve been spending more time in Kpop dance and ballet classes. I have less use for $300 separates and $600 dresses and most of my recent shopping expeditions has been for workout apparel at Ross, T.J. Maxx and Lily Lotus.

Now from Nordstrom comes word of the launch of Sweaty Betty, London’s effortlessly cool activewear brand, best known for its bum-sculpting leggings. Prices range from from $8 for a Spiral Hair Toggle to $175 for the Celestial All-in-One Jumpsuit.

Sweaty Betty Home Straight Run Vest ($75) and Zero Gravity Run Leggings ($115).

With its studio-to-street designs and “gym-to-gin” mentality, Sweaty Betty is on a mission to empower women through fitness and I’m a strong believer in this philosophy.

I have been stubbornly lax on fitness through the years, but the older I get, the more I realize I do need to move to stay strong. I dislike exercise but I love the concentration needed for dance. While moving, I am also giving my brain a workout. Because I never danced in childhood, I lack any kind of muscle memory for the moves and it forces me to make new neural connections. I love it!
