Spring is in sight! Which usually means doing a little pruning work on pants that have shrunk and morphed into high waters, stretched out, or become tattered at the bottom.

Growing up I always dreaded going to P.E. class. Not just because it required physical fitness, but it meant I had to slip out of my cute, well thought out wardrobe and throw on smelly gym clothes. Still to this day I often avoid exercising just because I do not want to give up looking stylish for feeling comfortable when I go for a run or head to yoga. The greatest thing to me is when there are pants and clothes that are made to run and sweat in, but somehow you still feel awesome when you walk to the store in them or meet up a friend for lunch. These tie dye print pants not only make your booty look good while walking around, but they are perfect and unique for who don’t want to give up their personal style for a little exercise.

This Just In: New Billabong Surf Capsule

Once again, the design team at Billabong has struck the perfect balance between traditional, “scrumptious baby seal” black neoprene, and a “maybe if I tie it super tight it won’t fall off” bikini. Introducing the Spring ’14 Billabong Surf Capsule Collection. The retro-inspired line features Billabong’s tech neoprene in bold color blocks, south of the boarder stripes, and a neon safari print mix. Combine the cheeky cuts with Summer-in-January weather*, and you’ll most-certainly be able to look past the 60 degree water temps towards long beach days ahead.
