Sporty Spice


Happy Tuesday everyone! 
Think of it this way: We're almost to Wednesday which is half way through the week...we can do this!

I was chatting with my friend this morning (hi Kate!) about workout clothing and how much new, comfy and colorful clothes can really motivate you in the gym. But honestly WHY are they so expensive?! With the new year still upon us (and I'm sure I'm not the only one who ate her weight in cookies during this snow storm...please tell me I'm not?) everyone seems to be trying to get their workout routines back on track. However, it definitely gets frustrating when you want to pick up some new gear, but have to hand over your first born child to do so. 

Rest assured, I have found some affordable options for you to shop that will get you excited about those squats and spin classes!

Honestly, Lululemon I love you and I will still turn to you for special 'treat yo-self' occasions, but I can't bare to spend another $60 on a sports bra right now! 


Old Navy: Old Navy is a great spot to shop affordable and cute workout clothes. They might not hold up for years, but at the prices they offer you can afford to replace every few months. I am currently eyeing these leggings, this tie-dye top with a cut out back, and this bright blue performance warm-up top

Gap: I love what Gap is doing with their Gapfit line right now! Also 9 times out of 10 there is some sort of sale/promotion listed on the homepage or via your inbox, so make SURE you don't ever pay full price! Looking toward spring and getting back outside, I love these brightly colored graphic running shorts! But until then, try these bright blue leggings with mesh panels for breathability. Are you a Class Pass gal and need comfortable, loose yoga tops? Love this one with the thumb loops and this one with the deep-V back!!

Zella: I love these leggings and you can find them at Nordstrom (hint: check Nordstrom Rack too, they always get over stock of these!). The best part of this workout line is the color/pattern options! If you want exercise clothes that are F.U.N. try these, these or these! Also you cant beat those prices.

Express: If you are like me, then you love to put on an all back sleek workout outfit that can take you from the gym to errands without looking totally nuts (my friend Cait calls this her ninja outfit which is so perfectly accurate). I have these mesh panel leggings on my list (and these which are a little more daring). Also I think graphic tees/tanks get the green light for the gym because why not make it fun? This one is for the ass kicker in you, and this one for a little mental motivation when you feel like giving up. Also, a lot of these are buy one get one 50% off right now...yasssss.

So really the moral of this rant is you can get excited for the gym, and workout in stylish comfortable clothing without breaking the bank...don't be fooled! 

P.S. Have any of you guys tried Fabletics? I am curious but want to know more about the quality and fit...
