WE WEAR: PUMPED-UP KICKS 20 Aug 2015

Nike Mizuno New Balance Adidas

Sneakers are the perfect accessory for an active summer. They support us to and from the studio, when we're on the run, and look great with Michi leggings, Splendid tank dresses, and Mother denim. Nike, Adidas, Converse, New Balance, Mizuno — you name it, we've been wearing it. 

Everyone has their favorite brand depending on personal fit and style. Lauren Boggi loves New Balance's 711 Mesh Trainer because it's cush and great for running (and Lithing) with its flexible forefoot. Master Lithe instructor and avid runner Tiffany Nork prefers the Mizuno running shoe because it feels like clouds.

Lithe instructor Rachael Bridgens is obsessed with Nike's colorful and lightweight sneaks. She's worn Nike forever and loves how colorful and lightweight they are. She ran Broad Street for the first time in May and after a lot of knee and foot pain accepted that she needed to get a pair of sneakers with supportive soles. She now owns (and loves) New Balance, but it took her awhile to get used to the chunky sole. She blames it on barefoot training at Lithe since she likes to feel her feet touch the ground. For shorter runs or cross-training, she's in lightweight Nikes all day, every day. 

Rachael also loves the Nike Dunk Sky Hi because it's a blend of casual and cool and the ultimate studio-to-street accessory. She says, "When I wear it I feel like such a bad-ass, but a laid-back, approachable bad-ass. I can also actually run in it and this pair is perfect for catching the train or making a flight. I like bright, funky things and feel like I am constantly walking the line between Katy Perry and a 3-year-old. Hi-tops give me a legitimate excuse to go crazy with prints and colors. They make me feel like an off-duty Victoria's Secret supermodel. Add aviators and a faux leather ball cap and I'm channeling Alessandra Ambrosio casually dropping by La Colombe."

WE WEAR: RACHAEL ON SHORTS 12 Aug 2015

Rachael B. Rach 2
I LOVE shorts, but rarely wear them while Lithing. I never teach in them because I figure no one would appreciate me demonstrating fold-overs in micro shorts! I do however wear them when I take class (as long as I can snag a spot in the back). I especially like shorts for Rock Steady. Wearing them makes me feel like I'm back at cheer camp (oh, the days when I owned a thousand pairs of Soffe shorts in every color with hair bows to match). I also love rocking my shorts for Walk Star with bright Nike sneakers. One of my favorite Walk Star pastimes is guessing what type of sneakers clients will wear, and then being shocked by how right (or wrong!) I am regarding the styles and colors.

LITHE ESCAPE: WHOLE LIFE, WHOLE BODY 1 Aug 2015

Lithe is a lifestyle, a way of life, and a path to happiness for many of us. If you're thinking about Escaping with us this fall, the deadline to register is today! To book, email escape@lithemethod.com and check out these videos featuring Aqua Wellness Nicaragua and San Juan del Sur via Prana Living and El Camino Travel. 

LITHE ESCAPE NICARAGUA 2015! 29 Jul 2015

LE Nicaragua[1]

We've been dying to go to Nicaragua. Are you coming with? Registration closes on August 1, 2015! 

Nicaragua has become a hot ticket for those of us with an ear to the ground for up-and-coming eco-destinations. You’ll win travel cred for heading to Nicaragua in these early days of its resurgence, but the real rewards are the stunning, secluded beaches, laid-back fishing villages with more pescadores than peddlers, and the sort of bang for your buck that can only last so long in a place as vacation-worthy as this. 

We look forward to: Staying in a treehouse colony, surfing classes at Gigante Bay, spa massages, green season showers, drinks at Mukul, exploring San Juan del Sur, sandboarding down a volcano, jungle walks, Lithe Escape fitness, organic cuisine sourced from Aqua's farm, and meals prepared by chef Ben Slow. In the evening, you're likely to be at Aqua's beachside Retox bar, sipping a cocktail, watching an epic sunset, and giving yourself a reason to do it all over again the next day.

WE WEAR: HIGH SUMMER CONTINUED 23 Jul 2015

It's high summer and our We Wear series is a style diary that maps Lithers's studio-to-street wardrobes throughout the seasons. Over the next few days, weeks, and months we'll feature our go-to looks.

By now you know I have a teensy (okay, big) obsession with Third Street Habit. In all honesty, I probably go there once a week. Sometimes I just window shop while I'm in between meetings. It’s a sickness and also one of my favorite guilty pleasures (in addition to chocolate).

I busted out a few issues of Self, InStyle, and Elle for a little “me time” in my parents' backyard this past week to get inspired for high summer style. After flipping through the pages, I found a few trends to experiment with.

  • Wearing a hat more often, especially with denim or a dress for a little edge.
  • Adding boho vibes to my otherwise minimalist daytime look with fringey accessories.
  • Chopping my oft-neglected hair to the collarbone. A fresh, swingy bob that I can still pull back is perfect for warm weather and hot days in the studio. 

Of course, I told Liz at Third Street what my goals were and she pulled these pieces. 

Hat Attack Fem Fedora: The straw hat has a classic fedora shape, only a bit softer. A  navy patterned band tied into a dainty bow that dangles off the side accents open woven raffia. It's light and I love it wearing it. 

Maison Scotch Summer Poncho: The loose cotton crochet knit top is perfect for hot summer days. Tassels trim the open sides and an antiqued charm accents the hem. Sleeveless, semi-sheer, playful, and easy to slide on over a bikini. Or pair it with shorts and flats or denim and heels.

Coming to Nicaragua? Grab your girls and get ready for the time of your life. If there's one thing we feel that we've truly nailed, it's the art of packing for Lithe Escape. We can squeeze in just under a week's worth of outfits into a carry-on (recycling is key) and have our Escape beauty routine down to a minimum. We're pretty confident when we say we've got this one. Here's what you'll need.

WE WEAR: HIGH SUMMER CONTINUED 15 Jul 2015

It's high summer and we're excited to kick off a collaboration with my favorite Philly boutique Third Street Habit. Our
 We Wear series is a style diary that maps Lithers's studio-to-street wardrobes throughout the seasons. Over the next few days, weeks, and months we'll feature our go-to looks. To kick it off, Third Street Habit is offering a 15% discount to all Lithers and FitHipHealthy readers thru tomorrow, July 16. Mention code hiphabit15 in-store or enter it at checkout.  

If you know me or if you've Escaped with me, you know that I live in Splendid tank dresses during the summer. Over the past eight or so years, I've collected the line's basic tank dress in every color. Each one is classic, versatile and washes, and travels well. These dresses can easily be dressed up or down with a change of shoes or outer layer. Liz at Third Street pulled this one and accessorized for me. Check out our second look. I feel like a California princess.

Splendid stripe dusty olive dress:  An essential. A classic midi length tank shape in a subtle navy and olive stripe pattern. I love this dress layered with a chambray shirt and leather slides for daytime or dressed up with heels at night.   

Tejido herringbone poncho: Not your basic poncho. It's SO soft and made of ultra-fine woven baby alpaca in shades of white and gray. The open styling and midi length make it easy to throw on and run out the door. The (hardly basic) stripes and fringe make me feel like I should be in Ojai, California. Perfect for travel and cool nights and transitions perfectly into fall.  

Brave Georgia fringe belt:  This edgy, obi-style belt with shredded fringe ends can be worn all year long.

Kempton + Co postal tote:  A spacious vintage-inspired modern tote that's big enough for all your beach, studio, office, and baby essentials. It's made from reclaimed materials that still have their original markings. Two interior pockets, gold hardware, and adjustable leather straps make for a perfect carryall. 

Matt Bernson Ames slide on: Clean, simple and comfortable. These leather slides have a 1.5" stacked leather wedge. Easy to slide on and run out the door (while still looking chic).
