Let's be honest: one of our favorite summertime workouts involves traipsing to the shore's edge, delicately dipping a toe in the water, and sashaying back to our towels so we can devour a pile of trashy magazines (and mimosas, natch). Calories in, calories out, right?
Still, staying fit is a year-round endeavor, and looking good while doing so only ups the ante. That's why we're pumped about Athleta's semi-annual sale, with favorites (like these scrunch shorts, with ruching that morphs any booty into a work of art) marked down up to 60% off—and according to their Newbury Street Twitter feed, they just added a ton of new styles to the mix.
