About Jholie London:

“My interest in fashion started when I began freelancing for British Vogue as a backstage artist. During this time I had the privilege of working with the very best fashion stylists, models and photographers. My love of fashion and design had begun.

Inspiration for the Ballerina Pant came to me during my time traveling the Caribbean Islands. I was living out of a suitcase and needed to simplify my wardrobe but still look stylish, I found my “go to jeans” very uncomfortable in the hot humid weather. After searching without success, I decided to design my own perfect travel pant, one that is classic in shape, soft to the touch with a flawless fit. I have designed a pant that will be suitable for Yoga, as a beach cover-up or for simply relaxing at home. Also one that will take you from day to evening by just replacing flats with heels. This is the versatile “Ballerina Pant.”

I am so happy to be able to launch this ALL-IN-ONE Resort Pant designed to fit all body types for any time of day. The unique integrated belt design, which can be wrapped, sashed or tied as a bow enables the pant to be worn low on the hips or high on the waist. In the very near future it will be my pleasure to offer a selection of colors to suit the changing seasons. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

JL.”

My Thoughts on the Ballerina Pant:

First off, I must say–I’m so stoked to support a brand that is based in my hometown of Jupiter, FL. Jholie Lawrence, founder & designer of Jholie London is a vibrant, beautiful, passionate woman who has been a joy to work with on this collab.

In two words: chic comfort! These pants are so unique because they have the feel of the most comfortable lounge pant you can imagine, yet they have this beautiful tie-waist detailing that enables you to look cute while you’re comfy–and you can dress them up! It also allows you to adjust the waist to suit your figure (I foresee myself living in them especially when I’m pregnant!)

I just love everything about them–feel, comfort, versatility and fit (besides one small detail). The only problem I’ve faced is that when I have to drop my pants to use the restroom (haha), the tie waist gets a bit discombobulated and requires a re-tie–which means I have to rewrap it around my body several times and get the right positioning and fit again. It’s totally a small detail, but it comes to mind when I think of these pants.

I look forward to experimenting more with pairings (dressing these pants up!). The versatility is amazing and I think Jholie has created a lovely piece in the Ballerina Pant!

Gym Loose Tank Top

About: 

-Loose Fit

-Sweat-wicking fabric

-Scoop Neckline

-Back cutout detailing

My Thoughts:

This top is beautiful–from the cut to the pattern and transparency of the fabric. It fit loosely, yet is feminine in that the fabric is see-through. I love the design. It’s the ideal, breathable running tank that could also be worn around town as a fun and unique tank top during warmer temps.

Studio Capsule Pants

About:

-Relaxed fit

-Moisture-wicking

-Wide elastic band

-drawstring

My Thoughts:

What a unique, comfortable, yet chic pair of sweatpants. I love the cute take on lounge sweatpants. They are tight enough around the bum and legs that they do not feel too frumpy on me. I see them as a fashionable twist on my cooler-temp sweatpants workout and hanging-out routine.

Narita V2 Shoes

About:

-Lightweight

-Mesh upper with synthetic suede overlays

-Breathable sockliner

My Thoughts:

When I first saw these shoes, I thought: throwback. I love the retro look and color contrast on these shoes. I wore these a few days ago while kicking the soccer ball around at the park with my family. They are perfect for kicking a soccer ball. They’re low profile, Simple with a flat platform where the laces are. Outside of soccer ball kicking, I find them as a comfortable sneaker to wear with sweatpants or jeans.

Gym Tank 3

About:

-Inner bra support

-Fitted; feminine silhouette

-Criss-cross back strap

-Sweat-wicking

My Thoughts:

I love the color of this form-fitting tank. It covers enough so that I feel comfortable exercising without having to be cautious. It’s also flattering, I feel, and would complement a range of body types. The inner bra support is a nice detail. I prefer to still wear a sports bra underneath–though it could be worn without one during low-intensity performance activities.

Gym 3/4 Length Tights

About:

-Unique patterning

-Flattering fit

-Drawstring waist

-Capri Length

My Thoughts:

These capris fit like a dream. They are comfortable at the waist–having the adjustable drawstring option is nice for water weight fluctuation. The material feels seamless and is ideal for optimizing performance and feel on long distance runs.

Mobium XT Shoe

About:

-Lightweight

-Breathable

-Rubber outsole

-Allows feet to move and expand freely

My Thoughts:

Love at first sight with the color of these shoes. I love how vibrant they are. They are very cushy and comfortable. I normally run in semi-minimalist shoes–thus, these shoes aren’t my pick for running. However, I enjoy wearing these shoes for performance during cross-training activities like hiking, weight lifting and doing plyometrics.
