Another New Year…and that often means New Year’s resolutions. Top categories tend to be working out more, self improvement and a healthier lifestyle. So what better than to bring you athleisure looks chosen by our New Year’s Fashion Ambassador that will take you from the gym to your next errand or casual outing. Karen loves fashion and has great taste, and as a regular shopper at SalvEdge Boutique she finds styles to match her work and extracurricular needs. She has a regimented fitness routine that she manages to squeeze into her busy schedule including running, mountain biking & hitting the gym regularly. Let’s get motivated YYC…reach your goals in 2018 and don’t give up on yourself; ever.
1) How would you describe your personal style?
For work: jeans, blazer and a tank/t-shirt underneath with cute shoes. Outside of work: Leggings, tank, slouchy hoodie/sweater or tunic and sneakers.
C’est Moi reversible leggings (S, M, L) / IMA sweater / Lululemon tank & zip up
2) What does fashion mean to you?
Being authentic. I like my outfit to reflect my personality and my mood. I’m sporty, informal and fun and I want my style to reflect that.
Lululemon tank, tee & leggings.
3) What advice can you give when it comes to putting an outfit together?
Wear what makes you feel good, what fits and what you’re comfortable in, also don’t forget about your shoes. Sometimes it’s shoes or a scarf that can pull an outfit together.
4) Why did you choose these particular athleisure looks?
They are very versatile. You could literally go straight from a workout to the grocery store simply by adding the sweater or scarf and still look put together.

5) Seeing as many people generally have a New Year’s resolution to have a better a fitness routine, any advice you can pass along to help one achieve those goals?
Set small, specific achievable goals that you can measure. It’s not motivation that gets me to the gym, it’s discipline in meeting the goals I’ve set for myself.
6) What do you like about SalvEdge Boutique/consignment shopping in general?
It’s organized, the items are high quality and I always find something that fits my personal style at a huge discount from retail prices.
