    Wow!!! i am impressed you were able to keep track of all that. We are so related. The Athleta brand is my FAVORITE ! Love visiting the store in Boston…like last wee bought 3 items I could not live without…haha. I mostly do online shopping with them as we do not have a store in Maine.

      Athleta is not in France… which is probably a good thing ! I have noticed that my clothes budget though is skewing towards workout clothes instead of daily, working clothes. LOL

        Mine too Karen. I own a lot of skirts from here for the summer and they are great. I also own some dresses that are very comfy. Do they ship overseas?

  3. Wow you have been busy! So much travel is exhausting isn’t it? Yes Athleta is a great store. enjoy your purchases. Half marathon-exciting!!
