Introducing: LIJA

Introducing LIJA

I’m starting a new series on the blog, showcasing fitness brands that might be new to you, collections from old favourites, and just outfits that I love. We’re starting the series with LIJA, a Canadian fitness brand that aims to marry together style and function to produce gorgeous workout wear.

I was sent a pair of leggings and a jacket to try out; the No Fear Capri and the Blaze Jacket. I’ve worn the leggings a lot over the past few weeks, including to a Halloween spin class at Boom Cycle, on runs, to yoga and I love them. They fit perfectly (I’m wearing a size small), and you don’t have to keep pulling them up – plus they have pockets in the front for your keys/gel/money or other essentials on your run. The drawstring also ensures that you can adjust the waist for a comfortable fit.



Unfortunately the jacket didn’t fit quite so well and the small was just a bit too small on me. I loved the styling though, especially the bow details across the vents at the back. It’s very lightweight, with two pockets at the front, and a really soft chin area.



You can buy LIJA at Net-A-Porter, Amazon, House of Fraser, and at various golf shops and independent sportswear stores in the UK- for full stockists check out the website.

It’s suddenly got really cold in London this weekend, time to pull out the winter running wardrobe and find some motivation to lace up and run despite the frigid temperatures!

    The tights are lovely! Not 100% on the jacket, this sounds odd but it looks like it would make a really annoying swishy noise… does it?

    Those are cute leggings! Nice photos, as well! Good luck with cold weather running. Always a mental challenge for me.
