I hope everyone had a good weekend – mine involved some work but also lots of walking around in the gorgeous weather we had in Washington, DC this weekend, and I even fit in a manicure and a stop at Locolat Cafe – they have a delicious lemonade which I indulged in while my husband had this delicious waffle with ice cream.
After two days of sunshine, though, there is a storm brewing and the temperature is dropping fast – I had to pull on leggings under my dress to avoid getting chilled just now. And that reminded me I really should tell you about these bamboo leggings. They are from Even Keel, which is a yoga apparel company specializing in sustainable fabrics. I love how Liz Matthews, the woman behind Even Keel, takes a basic item like leggings and adds design flair with a slightly longer leg (great if you are almost 5’10” like me) and beautiful colors at the waistband. I got to meet Liz at a shopping event at TranquiliT‘s showroom in Washington, DC, which is another eco-friendly brand that I rave about a lot.
I have been very pleased with the quality of the Even Keel leggings -they held up well in the wash, and are incredibly soft and comfortable. In addition to leggings, Liz designs these very nifty Glam Guru pants – she was wearing them the day I met her, and I can completely see why they are a signature item – think yoga pants with ruching – they’re adorable. I was on a mission to buy bamboo leggings that day, but I am definitely thinking I need to look at the Glam Guru pants or the Toreador pants, which are mid-calf-length.
Even Keel is available in many cities or online. Picture from Even Keel website.
