As much as I would like to say that I am NOT one of those moms that put on workout clothes each morning, I absolutely am. There is a few reasons. First and foremost, if I am dressed to workout, I will more likely actually workout. Two, when it is 5:15am, it doesn’t take much thought to put on leggings and a shirt. Thirdly, I would really love to stay in my pajamas when I take the kids to school but unfortunately I need to sign my daughter into her preschool which means people have to see me and workout clothes are the next best thing to pajamas.
I definitely have my preferences when it comes to workout clothes (as I mentioned in this post) but one thing is consistently; almost everything is black. Yes, black as black can be. I cannot tell you how many pairs of black leggings I have but it is a crazy number. BORING. But that is what I always buy. Then I was perusing Instagram and came across GoldSheep clothing, a Laguna Beach based clothing company specializing in badass leggings. They had posted a photo of an event at Bloomingdale’s South Coast Plaza and it shared their Gold Lights leggings. I became obsessed. I knew there was a pretty good chance the inseam would not be long enough on them so I sent an email not expecting much. Keri, the Mastermind behind Goldsheep, quickly got back to me and said no problem, what inseam do I want? Um What?! Now I didn’t just want the amazing pants because I loved them but because I was impressed by the personal service. A few days later my leggings arrived and I now wear them entirely too much (I am actually wearing them write now as I type, no joke.)
I was hooked.
When it came time to shoot the B Mega Fit post there was only one brand I wanted to be wearing in the workout. GoldSheep. Of course I was late to the game in ordering and Keri once again came through with getting me a pair of their best seller, the pineapple cropped leggings. They are crazy good. I cannot tell you how many people have reached out since this post, asking me where I got the pants. They were definitely a hit.
So what is it about these leggings that make them better than the rest? Initially, the prints catch your eye. They are unlike any leggings you have seen anywhere and they definitely get attention. Plain black leggings be gone! I love the two prints that I own but there are so many amazing prints to choose from. The Black Rain and the Winterland are next on my list.
The second and more important reason I love these leggings is how incredibly comfortable they are. I cannot put into words how much more comfortable they are than most leggings I own. They are very soft and extremely flattering. They are easy to workout in and make for the perfect casual pant on a cold day. The waistband is not too tight and you won’t be tugging at them all day. Simply said, they feel like a second skin.
Finally, Keri and the entire team at GoldSheep are extremely friendly and focused on customer service, which is extremely important to me. I know that if anything was wrong with one of their products, they would not hesitate to fix it. They take a lot of pride in their product and it shows. I love that they are a locally based company and growing by the second. Another kick ass woman going after her dream and I want to support her 100%.
