Hello, my darling friends! Today I’m coming at you live with a post that is going to blow your mind. I’m bringing you the ultimate guide to the most affordable and adorable work out clothes. For me, one of the biggest incentives to start working out was the cute athleisure articles of clothing I knew I could convince my husband to let me buy. So today I’m going to give you the low-down on the must-have workout gear and where to buy them. Let’s jump right into it.
The Ultimate Guide To Workout Clothes.
The Sports Bra.
This is my favorite sports bra. It is from Victoria Secret and I got it during their semi-annual sale (aka my favorite day of the year). Why are sports bras important? They reduce the movement that unavoidably will happen to your breasts when you’re working out. That can cause tearing in the “Cooper’s Ligaments” (pleeeease be impressed. I’m using my college degree in biology right now). Once those ligaments tear, there is no repairing them….and then let the sagging begin. Sports bras range between ‘compression’ bras to bras with built-in cups. Whichever you choose, make sure it has enough to support to keep your girls in place.
The Yoga Pants.
There are two of my favorite yoga pants. I am currently wearing the black ones right now. I am ADORING the crochet bottoms. I feel feminine and chic when I wear these. I like that these yogas are high-waisted, too, because it keeps all parts of me covered when I’m twisting like a pretzel while achieving my “zen”. I love the detail on the grey and pink ones too. I know that “looking pretty” doesn’t make your work outs any better but I definitely feel like I burn more calories….
My Beats by Dre headphones are my absolutely favorite. I got them as a birthday gift last year from my mom (thanks mom you the real MVP). I love them. They completely block out any external noise and allow me to focus on my workout. Because I’m serious about this working out thing. I’m serious.
Okay confession time: I don’t have these YET. I’ve run around the Nike store in them and stared at how pretty they are for about an hour. Then I promptly went home, ordered my size and now I wait. Everything that I know about these shoes, though, (because my husband has a matching pair…are we cute or..?) is that they are amazing. Honestly. Here is a testimonial from my hubby: “They are some of the most effective, comfortable and stylist running shoes I have ever worn”. Are you convinced yet?
