My Favorite Lorna Jane Pieces

Last year, I reviewed a bunch of Lorna Jane clothes.

I thought they were super cute, and I felt cool reviewing a brand that was pretty new to the U.S. (They’ve been in Australia forever.) 

At the time, I just thought they were cute clothes.

Last August, I went to a press breakfast where Ms. Lorna Jane Clarkson herself spoke — very candidly about the ups and downs of building a very successful business. She couldn’t fake that authenticity if she tried, and I felt feeling so inspired to go after my dreams with the same dogged abandon.

I was looking for a job at the time, and I decided that what I was really passionate about was health and fitness, and using social media as a platform to reach people, and I began to narrow the focus of my job search.

A long way of saying – this little Australian lady really inspired me. And she makes cute clothes.

They sent me some clothes to try out, and I’m here to share with you some of my favorites.

Lorna Jane

Drill Excel Tank | Comfort Sports Bra | Run Short

I love the tank because it’s kind of loose-fitting, and I have a bit of a belly. It also has a cute split cut in the back. 

The sports bra is amazing. There’s one of their bras that I really like to wear just to hang out, the Pammy, so this was my first “real” LJ sports bra. The one complaint I have (that’s easily solved) is the padding. Sweet Jesus, I feel like i have fake boobs when I put on the sports bras and forget to take out the padding.

The Run Short is a pretty short short. It’s great for running, but I feel a little uncomfortable sitting down. Still, on this hot weekend in Boston, they were just fine. AND Katy was running behind me and told me my butt looked good. Which was all I really needed to hear. They have both two front pockets and one zipped pocket in the back. Win.

They also sent over this Run Addict tank. It’s stretch cotton so I probably wouldn’t wear it for a long, long run, but for the 3-6 milers I’ve been doing this summer, it’s been a-ok. And makes me smile.

The clothes are really cute, but I really love all the thought and passion that goes into them and building the Lorna Jane lifestyle. Plus, I feel like it’s the perfect kind of clothing for someone like me who frequently transitions from workouts to the office and back.

What’s your favorite brand of fitness wear? Do you care about fitness fashion or just wear whatever?

    I’ve heard a lot about Lorna Jane but have never tried her apparel myself! It is all super cute and I’d love to try it someday. I go back and forth with my fitness fashion – I do like to look good, but pieces also have to be functional 🙂

    I believe that the perfect workout clothes need to be super comfortable, perform well, and look flattering on my body! Feeling self-conscious is never fun, especially during a workout. (I refuse to wear shorts that ride up while I run!) I am a super fan of Athleta, particularly their yoga pants. Like your connection to Lorna Jane, I admire Athleta as a company. I have attended some incredible free events in NYC that they’ve sponsored. I just went to their free yoga event in Bryan Park this morning, 🙂

    I’m so glad you wrote this! There is a Lorna Jane store right by my new apartment and I’ve been wondering how their clothes are. I haven’t heard too much about them yet. Looking forward to trying some out – thanks girl!
