The more I hustle, the more I crave clothing that’s comfortable and functional, so when I had the opportunity to partner with TEMA Athletics, it was a match made in heaven! The clothing from this brand can literally go from day to night with little to no effort. Plus all of the items are the highest quality and are available in sizes XS-3X. What do I love the most? TEMA is all about women empowerment and inclusivity no matter where you are in your fitness journey!
Before we jump into the fashion, I wanted to share a quick story about how I connected with TEMA and it’s founder & CEO, Bhawna Gupta. TEMA was looking to produce a body positivity shoot a few months back. Kate from All Things Kate (amazing blogger/friend) passed along my name to Bhawna. She reached out to me and we eventually met for a fitting. Bhawna designs the clothes and does the photography. I’ll be sharing the photos from that shoot soon.
Post-fitting, Bhawna mentioned that we should partner up with both our brands, TEMA and Lace & Pearls Jewelry (my handmade jewelry line) and that is how the day-to-night shoot was inspired! Bhawna came up with the creative vision, found makeup artist Katy Marie and got balloons from Le Ballon. Emma (Emma Edition) and I supplied our shoes and accessories.
Every day I pinch myself because of the opportunities that transpired from this blog. It’s amazing how one connection can lead to another and then more! What’s even better is when those connections spark long-lasting friendships.
Activewear That Goes From Day To Night
Transitioning to night was a lot of fun and boy did we look glam! I kept the same pair of leggings but swapped out the top for the metallic moss green option. I traded in my sneakers for a pair of black pumps and added a simple clutch. For the makeup, we kept the lips nude but opted for a dramatic smokey eye. Normally, I wear very little makeup on my eyes so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this look.
Emma is wearing the Double Mesh Tank with the Camo High Waist Printed Compression Leggings. For the accessories, she is rocking the stylish Hilary threader earrings, Penny necklace, and Jossylyn bracelet.
