Today: Derby de mayo.

[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false]Between the Kentucky Derby and el cinco de mayo, today was destined to be a day for celebrating.

I wouldn’t mind having a mint julep in one hand and margarita in the other, but then again, I’d like to be somewhat productive today.  So I’ll settle for sparkling water.  And sparkly nail polish.

I ventured out in the Boston rain (I could use some Mexican sunshine) this morning, sparkly nails and all, for the second annual Zella Day of Movement at Nordstrom.  Stores across the country opened early for various fitness classes and shopping.  I joined the group at the South Shore Plaza for a great gentle yoga class with Maureen Mahoney of South Shore Yoga Network.

You haven’t lived until you’ve held tree pose while mall walkers cruise across the back of your mat.  Trust me.  Despite the foot traffic, Maureen brought us through a great sequence of hip and chest openers, gentle stretches, and energizing breathing.  Following class, we rolled up our mats and headed back to Nordstrom to peruse Zella activewear, a line exclusive to Nordstrom.

I love the focus on transitional pieces that can be work as active or casual wear.  I am a big fan of multitasking.  The fabric is extremely soft, and the styling is really adorable.  Lots of ruffles and ruching.  I picked up a bright lemon tank and a pair of perfect leggings before heading back to the city to celebrate Derby de mayo with Nick, Tina and Mal.

Ole.  And whatever they say in Kentucky.
