Carrie Underwood today likely didn’t plan for her Instagram followers to complain. The 38-year-old country singer and CALIA by Carrie athleisurewear founder was all smiles as she marked another milestone for her 2015-founded brand, with photos of her coming both as posed with the stylish apparel and seeing her impress with a workout. Posting for her 10.2 million followers, Carrie delivered a power plank during a grass-set workout, with the shots coming as Dick’s Sporting Goods dedicates a section of one of its outlets to CALIA. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. Carrie, this year marking six years of CALIA, was back with Dick’s, where her label was already ranking third best-selling after Nike and Under Armour in 2016. The “Drinking Alone” singer, in full beast mode, was seen training with a group of women while outdoors, with the promo shots also showing her in gorgeous electric-blue leggings, a rib tank, plus sneakers as she smiled.
Carrie, whose empire also includes her Fit52 app and “Find Your Path” diet and exercise book, delivered exciting news in her caption.
Addressing fans, the blonde wrote: “Had a great time at the grand opening of @dickssportinggoods House of Sport in Knoxville and seeing the incredible @caliabycarrie section! Kudos to all the ladies who joined @eveoverlandfitness and me for a sweat session to celebrate. And boy did we sweat! 😅💪.”
The love always pours in fast for Carrie, but the “American Idol” winner likewise faced backlash. Largely, in this case, over the high prices of her clothes. Swipe below for the gallery -scroll for more photos.
Quickly gaining likes was a comment reading: “Too expensive and sizes are too small.” Echoing the thought, another fan wrote: “Love this line, but it’s SO EXPENSIVE!!” Carrie has made headlines in the past for seeing fans shade the cost of her clothes. She was also asked: “Why are your clothes so expensive?”
For what it’s worth, CALIA gets rave reviews for its high quality, with fans often shopping it over brands such as Nike or Adidas because they straight-up prefer the fabrics. More photos below.
Jumping to the singer’s defense was a loyal customer, one writing: “Would you rather have $20 crap pieces or a little more expensive pieces that don’t fall apart after one wear? It’s worth saving up for, trust me…”
Carrie is fresh from promoting her brand with a stunning woodlands run, one that saw her actually stumble across a four-leaf clover, making it an extra-lucky workout. The star has also been picking her own garden onions and showing off her veggie crustless quiche. Scroll for what she cooked from refrigerator leftovers!
