Blogoversary Giveaway: Feeling Young in Ion Actif Women's Activewear [CLOSED]

On March 7th, 2011 3 Garnets & 2 Sapphires turned 3!  Only instead of feeling excited and accomplished as I did in past years, when this year's blogoversary rolled around, I was actually feeling tired and a little old.  I think 3 years is the equivalent of approaching middle age in the blogging world.  So what made me feel better?  Putting on my women's performance activewear by Ion Actif!  Read on to find out why . . .

For just about every clothing review I write, I always include a disclaimer about how I still have a bit of a belly from carrying our twins (who are now 4).  I did not have to include such a disclaimer in this review because the two pieces I selected, the Ion Actif Scoop Tank and the Cargo Capri, fit me perfectly.  I requested an XL in the tank and a Medium in the pants.  I was so pleased about the fit of the tank.  I did not even have to inhale and hold my breath for the photo.  Usually I would need to order a 2XL in a top to get the relaxed fit I am looking for, but this tank achieves that fit with a straight cut and graceful gathers at the neckline.  I also think the length is perfect, hitting right at the hip.

The Supplex/Nylon and Lycra/Spandex pants fit like a glove.  They are cute enough to wear everyday.  The two back pockets and the side cargo pocket make it possible for you  to travel light.  The cargo pocket is located on the left leg and is large enough to hold my Windows phone.

The "mom" uniform around here is usually a zip-up hoodie paired with bootcut yoga pants or jeans.  That outfit does not quite work in the warmer weather, but this one by Ion Actif would be perfect.  It has a clean tailored style, is comfortable, and is designed to keep you cool while you sweat.  What could be more perfect for a busy mom on the go?
