TEMA Athletics + Giveaway
I’m not sure how, but a few weeks ago I missed the 4-year mark of the open letter I wrote to the person who asked me if I was too fat to write a fashion blog. The anniversary of that post always allows me to reflect on my blog life and evolution. In 4 short years a lot can change! Not only has it been a crazy journey for me personally since that time, but I’ve since lost 70lbs, became a fitness instructor, and have a newfound passion in health and fitness. And also, a little more subtle evolution has been that of my person style. I used to ALWAYS (and practically only) wear dresses. And now? I basically live in pants, athleisure, and workout clothes!
I love discovering new athletic and athleisure brands and was recently introduced to TEMA Athletics, a Seattle-based women-led women’s athletic clothing line. When I started my fitness journey it was so difficult to find stylish plus size workout gear. I was stuck wearing plain black leggings or capris with gray or black tops. No fun prints, patterns, colors, or fun details. How boring! I wish that TEMA had been around when I started my journey, as they cater to women of ALL shapes and sizes, carrying sizes XS-3X.
But what’s more is that beyond the wide selection of sizes, styles, and patterns, is the mission and women behind the brand. They are women balancing it all – careers, kids, partners, and healthy lifestyles – striving to empower women and encourage them on their journeys to self acceptance and fulfilling lives. And the lovely ladies at TEMA have graciously allowed me to give away an outfit to one lucky reader! You can enter to win a TEMA Athletics logo tanktop, solid compression leggings (in the color of your choice!) and a headband.
Head over to my Instagram and enter by following me and tagging your friends and check below for more ways to enter to win!
And – you can get 50% off your TEMA order through 12/9/2016 with code KATE50. It’s a great holiday gift for yourself – or your fitness loving girlfriends!

Thanks so much to TEMA Athletics for partnering with me on this post and providing me with these stylish looks!
I love the green half chevron tank, the mesh leggings, and the soft black pull-over! It’s all so cute! Thanks for hosting.
I’m always looking for cute workout gear and it looks like TEMA has lots of options! I love how it’s a local Seattle company and that they make clothing for different body shapes and sizes!
I don’t know how this will look on me…
But it would make a great Christmas gift for your wife!
I love those Lattice Compression leggings, they looks so comfortable.
I am disgusted that anyone ever actually wrote such a hateful message to you!! I’m sorry you had to experience that, but I love your positivity about it!
I need those leggings! They are so cute and look super comfy!
I’ve been lusting after that TEMA top you’ve been posting in your Instagram photos, and now I know where to find one! Yay!
First, people never cease to amazing me with their lack of disregard for other people’s feelings. It is truly amazing that you took that and created something strong and beautiful with it. Sometimes people want to hold us down and make us feel less than them, but they don’t know our heart or spirit. People like us turn what is meant to hurt into good. Journey’s wouldn’t be as fulfilling if there were no battles or obstacles to overcome. That’s what makes working hard and fighting so fun, we can do it through whatever comes our way!
You look so dang cute it TEMA! I love that any girl can rock their wear and exude confidence in their goals and their amazing bodies! If only more women learned to dress themselves for success in what ever they faced, maybe they would learn the value of these strong bodies we have!
I love the lattice on the cropped pants
I really like the Lattice Compression Legging – Black. They are adorable!
Wow! Those Lattice Compression Leggings are unique! I really those! They could go with so many outfits.
