Today is a biggggg day! 2 reasons!
#1. It’s my 2 year wedding anniversary!
#2. It’s the launch of my newest POPFLEX Collection, Retro Rainbow!
Somewhere over the retro rainbow is where I found the inspiration for this collection! I love colors so much. I can’t even choose my favorite because each color describes a different mood, a different feeling, a different season – and I need them all! To start off this post, I want to show you the mood boards that inspired the feelings for Retro Rainbow…
I love mint because it represents abundance, renewal, growth and it’s such a healing color! Plus it reminds me of pistachio ice cream and matcha milkshakes!
When I see peach, I feel joy and comfort. It’s friendship, gratitude, sincerity with just a touch of feminine energy.
Baby blue is so calming and tranquil! When I am at peace, I feel most confident.
Now that the mood has been set…I introduce you to my most colorful collection yet! Retro Rainbow!
AHH!!!! I love how the colors look together and I love how the silhouettes look so good on everybody! Before we get any further into this post, I want to give Jordan, Sasha, Ahlah, and Dzoanna a HUGE shoutout for modeling like pros for this collection! I’m having a major proud mama moment because these are your fellow POPsters who have never modeled before, but found the courage to apply for the opportunity, push past their fears, and you know what?? They totally KILLED IT.
Here I am wearing the Focus Half Zip-Top and the Tone Shorts! This top is perf for layering over a sports bra for chilly morning runs. The Tone Shorts fit similar to the Wander Shorts 2.0 with the hold band. I’m super into biker shorts right now – no more butt cheeks hanging, you know what I mean!!??
All the pieces are cut from the same StretchSilk fabric we used for the Terrain Collection, so it’s super sleek, stretchy and breathable.
Sasha. Girl. That face. That hair. That confidence! She wearing the Believe Bra and Believe 7/8 Leggings. Sasha’s energy truly lit up the room!
I love the Believe set because #1 – it reminds me of a matcha milkshake and #2 – that soft elastic band is the epitome of Retro Rainbow. LOVE.
Dzoanna’s firey red hair is just as playful as her soul! I loved getting to know her on shoot day. I found out that she had a huge transformation by using Blogilates videos. Do you want to see her before and after?!
Dzoanna is wearing the layering the Breezy Tie Tank over the Tone Bra and Tone 7/8 Legging in Peach. This top is perfect for layering over any bra. Plus isn’t the tie back feature so girly and sporty all in one? I’m all for anything adjustable!
It was amazing getting to know Jordan and learn more about her Native family history!
Sweet Jordan is wearing the Focus Half-Zip Top and the Tone Shorts in Baby Blue! I designed this top to have mesh cutouts at the shoulders for extra breathability. Plus love me some thumbholes and a sophisticated collar.
Okay this jump is perfection. She literally got this on her first try. I’ve done so many of these and it takes 50 til I get an “effortless” looking one!
Look how cool this open bra back is. Open teardrop shape to commemorate the tears that will run when I make you do 100 burpees in a row.
Jordan is wearing the Believe Bra in Mint.
Ahlah was shy, cute, and bubbly all in one! It was so cool to see her get more and more comfortable modeling as the day went on. I mean, how amazing does she look in the Believe set!? The elastic and high neck design keeps everything securely in place as you work out!
AH!!! This color. Reminds me of an orange creamsicle or a peach sherbert! Now I’m hungry.
I’ve been dying to design a square neck bra for a while and now finally we have one!!! I plan to keep this style around for a while because the fit is perfection! Oh and the low cut back is sooo sleek. Shows off all your sexy back muscles! Dzoanna is wearing the Tone Bra and Tone 7/8 Legging in Peach.
The Tone 7/8 Leggings are a similar fit to the Gulch 7/8 Legging. The hold band keeps everything in place, and the v-cut crossover waistband accentuates your natural hourglass shape!
So proud of these girls for KILLING IT at our Retro Rainbow shoot! It’s such an honor to be able to work with girls from our very own community because it makes the collection truly reflective of YOU. There’s so much more than a person modeling clothes. It’s like having old friends come over catching up and playing dress up. It’s so fun and I can’t wait to keep featuring more POPsters in future collections!
