I love workout gear. I would much rather buy workout gear than normal everyday clothes. I think I’ve finally found a pant that sucks me in and does NOT fall down. Hallelujah! Here is lululemon’s Fast and Free 7/8 Tight. I have to give credit to the sales woman who helped me. I told her how much I love the Align pant, but they have been slipping down on me lately while I’m working out. She said I should size down in those ORRRRRR…try a new pant with more compression at the waist. The fabric is soft like the Align, but also has the compression I was looking for. And after my workout, I’m proud to say these pants didn’t budge…and it wicked away the sweat much better than the Align. It was leg day so I was doing a ton of squats and then different intensity intervals with jumping, and yep, they stayed put. I highly recommend these pants!
This Twist Around Tank is so fun. I love how long it is (which may be too long for shorter torso gals). The mesh detail is also a plus. This gave me decent support…would probably not run in this, but I felt pretty secure. It’s on sale too, so yay to that!
Instead of wearing my traditional wedding rings to the gym, I opt to wear my Qalo ring. Then I don’t have to worry about my metal bands getting scratched up on the metal of the weights! They have a ton of color options and thicknesses. My fingers are pretty small, so I wear a size 5 (my wedding rings are 4.25).
My FitBit finally crapped out on me, so I opted to get an Apple Watch instead. And I love it! I didn’t know if I would or not, but I am so glad my parents got me one for Christmas!
And if you are looking for a lightweight shoe to wear for lifting, this Asics Metrolytes are a great option. They are seriously light as a feather, but provide great support for your feet. I wouldn’t recommend doing long runs or anything in these though.
Wow, you know you haven’t blogged in a long time when you still aren’t logged into WordPress 🙂 It’s been a while, but life has been busy and I’ve enjoyed spending so much time with my family – and of course the occasional shopping trip!
One of my great friends loves vests. I mean loves them…we call it part of her uniform. And she’s started rubbing off on me. They are so great to have when it’s not too cold enough to have a coat but not quite warm enough just to have a shirt on. I snatched up this Loft Puffer Vest a few weeks ago when they were having 70% off online. Uh, yes please! Couldn’t resist the soft pink color. Typically I size down at the Loft, but I ordered a medium to make sure it was roomy enough to have a shirt or sweater underneath. It fits great – and is the softest fabric. Highly recommend.
I’ve also started quite the collection of fashionable sneakers. I follow Loverly Grey on Instagram. She’s the cutest thing and a native Atlanta suburb girl. She had these adidas Edge Luxe shoe on and was raving about them, so I decided to give them a try. SO glad I did. They really are super comfortable. And can we talk about the laces for a second? Too cute. When I wore them to work, I think I got about 10 compliments on them. (Can I mention I love an office where I can wear this cute outfit?!)
