dear hip tranquil chick . . .

I want to integrate yoga into my busy life. Do I have to buy a whole new wardrobe?

No, have fun with pieces that can be worn in multiple ways. The hip tranquil chick gets bored with the typical black leggings and yoga tee (although she's ecstastic that leggings are spring must-haves). Coupled with charming (and cheap) accessories, she is able to throw a ballet style wrap top over the same cami and black pants she practiced in for an evening out.

The hip tranquil chick has the following staples in her chic and simple closet:

• Multiple black pants in assorted fabrics (terry, cotton, velvet, blends), lengths (capri, floor-length, ankle-length), and styles (leggings, boot leg, flare, low-rise)
• Fun, fitted tops in black and white (maybe a dash of pink too) and fabrics (rayon jersey, bamboo, organic cotton) that stretch and allow ample mobility during practice, shopping, and being creative at work
• Cover-ups such as wrap tops and tunics keep even the most modest yogini comfortable en route to the studio
• The tranquiliT tube to wear over yoga pants or alone as a long or short skirt and also as the perfect little black dress
• A slip dress or cross front tunic that can be worn over yoga pants or alone
Long skinny scarf to tie around your waist, in your hair, or wrap around your neck
• Ballet style slippers, kitten heels, or wedges are perfect for wearing to the studio and then to the cafĂ©
• A cute and comfy yoga mat bag to tote your sacred mat around town
• A functional and fun bag, large enough to hold all her pre- and post-practice yoga goodies such as small items of luxury: body wipes (to clean up before heading out and about post-practice), lavender facial hydrating mist (lavender mixed with h2o in a spritzer), rosebud salve (glosses lips, controls hair frizzies, and soothes dry skin all in one little tin), and white musk perfume oil (from the body shop) to dab behind the ears
• Smile and good attitude--something a hip tranquil chick can never leave home without

Viola, you're refreshed, have the staples to help you easily transition from the mat to the matinee, and you've got that post-yoga glow!
