Shop My Look
Happy Monday, friend!
It might sound oh-so-typical, but one of my New Year’s resolutions is to workout at least 5 times a week. I put exercising on the back burner during the holiday frenzy, but now that January is here it’s officially “go-time”! I recently joined Class Pass and have been loving the variety! There’s no boredom when you can go to barre one day and boxing the next! Last week I accomplished 4 out of the 5 workouts that I set out to attend, so I’m still a work in progress… 😬
Speaking of workouts, do you have one fabulously good gym outfit that makes you feel like a bad-A exercise aficionado? Well, for me, it’s wearing head-to-toe black. Perhaps it’s because I feel a bit like a ninja… ha!
Luckily, styling an all-black-everything look is just about as easy as it gets. And it often reads athleisure-chic, so you can take it from the treadmill to your to-do list without having to change!
Now let’s talk outfit specifics.
I’m wearing top-to-toe Nordstrom today! Since trying to up my fitness game, I’ve been frequenting their activewear department and I’ve found so many winners. Cute workout clothes = the ultimate exercise motivation, am I right? Nothing gets my booty to the gym faster than a new pair of leggings.
It’s been chilly in Dallas lately, so long sleeves are an absolute essential. This long sleeve tee by Zella (a Nordstrom exclusive!) has the perfect amount of stretch and it’s available in 5 colors. I topped it with a puffer vest for warmth (but I’m loving this similar puffer vest EVEN MORE!) and then paired it with the most slimming black leggings that I’ve ever worn, EVER. Thank you, SPANX!! I find myself wearing these leggings absolutely everywhere- the airport, the grocery store, the gym, the mall, the couch… I’m wearing them ’round the clock. As a matter of fact, I’m wearing them this very second as I type.
(I wash them a lot, I promise.)
P.S. I’m wearing a size medium for reference.
Now, let’s take it down to the toes. These sneakers are light as a feather and available in 4 colors. They’re ideal for running, but I’ve been wearing them to a variety of workout classes. Comfortable, versatile and only $100 – what’s not to love?
Last but definitely not least, I’m excited to introduce you to my new gym bag must-have: The Invisibobble Hair Tie.
The Invisibobble never makes my pony feel too tight yet it keeps it in place no matter the activity. But, the BEST part is, it never leaves a kink in my hair post-ponytail!! That’s a gamechanger, no?! Especially if you’re trying to extend your $45 blowout an extra day or two (…or three)
Pssst… If you give “invisibobble tutorial” a quick google search you’ll be floored by the amount of hairstyles you can create with this little wonder! I’ve only used it for my gym pony, but I plan on giving new styles a try, stat!
I hope you enjoyed this casual look for a change! Let me know in the comments if you would like to see more activewear posts in the future – I love to hear from you! xo
