But first, Barre.

But first, Barre.

I think it’s no secret that I have an obsession with Pure Barre. Whether it’s my InstaStories or a Instagram photo – I’m consistently professing my love hate relationship with this intense workout.

Now with that being said, I’m not going to lie – I am not Ms. Fitness by any means. Yes, I workout and I love that post workout feeling but I typically face the internal struggle of sleeping in vs. going to my 5:30 AM Barre class. I’m sure (or atleast hope) many of you can relate.

Regardless of the struggle I encounter of getting to Barre in the wee hours of the morning – I never regret going. The sense of community in the studio, the instructors cheering you on by name, the music, the literal shake you get from holding a move or pulsing. It’s always worth it.

If you haven’t tried Pure Barre in Baltimore, you need to get there. And you need to take at least three classes before giving me your official review – because the first and second class, I guarantee you’re tying to figure out what the hell is going on. By class three – you’re finally starting to get it.

So what? You’re probably thinking – are you just trying to get me to go a workout class? Well that 🙂 but mainly I wanted to share the super cute socks I’ve been sporting in my 5:30 AM classes from a company called – BarreSocks.

BarreSocks began back in October 2014, by “a barre enthusiast who had a vision“. This vision was to find a way to stand out in a room full of the same (admittedly enough…boring) barre socks. BarreSocks graciously sent me a pair of socks to try and I can’t say enough good things. Aside for the fact that they are super comfortable – I’ve gotten compliments  g a l o r e ! As any barreista knows, everyone has the same socks in class. So walking in with socks that say Sweat Now, Wine Later, you’re sure going to spark some conversation.

Seriously, how cute are these socks?!

Not only do they create socks though – as of January 2015 they started designing apparel. Don’t be surprised if you see me in some of the below favorites soon.

AND they also have amazing canvas bags like this one below that basically defines my early morning thoughts.


So what are you waiting for – sign up for a class here, grab your BarreSocks gear + get tucking!




A very special THANK YOU to fellow Barreista Tiffany and PureBarre Instructors Emily + Caroline (@fit_clean_fun) for being amazing sock models for this post.
