Exercise

Preparing for fitness success.

It’s no surprise that most New Years resolutions involve getting fit and healthy. A good way to get started is researching healthy diets, maybe signing up for a gym membership and my favorite part… shopping for new workout clothes! Sounds silly but your workout attire can increase your likelihood of getting to the gym by 52%! Ok, that’s a totally made up statistic. Nonetheless it’s absolutely true that the way you dress affects how you feel, your confidence and how much success you will have in what you are trying to accomplish. I can’t force you to get a workout in but I can recommend some pretty dope gear to get you started.

First up, bottoms. From leggings to joggers there are so many options. And the best part is they can be versatile allowing you to wear them for more than just a workout. For example I love my Spanx leggings, they’re perfect for a sleek look and booty lift to give you the confidence boost you may be requiring to get back to the gym. Plus you can dress them up with flats and an oversized shirt like you see it here… (click the image to shop)

For a fun look the Ultracor  designs are always a good pick, plus they’re one of the best compression leggings you can find giving you great circulation and comfort.

And then of course you have your joggers. I love this “paint splatter” pair by Monrow for looking comfortably cool.

I like to layer simple tanks and sports bras. Nothing crazy. I like this one by Beyond Yoga, a perfect layering piece.

This velvet sports bra by Alo Yoga is so luxurious.

For a fun top piece this Fila crop is perfect to wear alone or with a tank under neath.

 

 

 

 

And one must have a hoodie or two to complete the look. 🙂 I love this camo one, also by Monrow, it goes with everything.

Alright that’s enough for today. I still need to get into foot wear which will require a whole other post so I’ll save that for next time.

I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to experiment with different fashion trends. But on the regular, I’m in my “mom uniform” of leggings and a cute top. The reason for this is two-fold, it’s comfortable and I can workout in it. I don’t want to get dressed up when I’m chasing a toddler around who will most likely wipe his jelly hands on me at some point during the day.

Luckily there are a lot of fashionable and comfortable clothes choose from to make life a not just comfortable but fashionable. Here are some of my favorites from the ASOS web-site:
Puma sweatshirt, an ASOS exclusive:

Reebok Metallic High Rise Leggings. I live in black leggings, it may be considered boring but they’re always flattering, go with anything and the “metallic” on these give it a little something extra.

I love crop tops. I know there’s a fear of them, but you can always throw a cami underneath for a cute layered look if you’re scared to bare your midriff.

I love the look of a crop top with a baggy pant like this pair from Adidas.

I like a basic tank to workout in, nothing fancy. No weird loops or bows, keep it simple. Nothing says “suburban house wife” like a Lululeman top with a complicated tie back and cutouts on the side. I prefer something like this Converse high neck top.

Sneakers…
