Fashion is the way I introduce myself to the world, every day, without saying anything.

Hi again!

A little after Memorial Day weekend this year, I decided it was high time I got into shape. Not just my normal routine of a few workouts a month, the occasional cardio class here and there, the all but rare run through the park – I wanted to actually get off my butt and move.

9 weeks and almost 50 workouts later, I’m in shape! I haven’t lost weight, haven’t run more than 2 miles, but I’m strong and that is the best feeling ever. My good friend (and neighbor!) Dari told me in passing this summer that she really loved doing Tone It Up workouts. She is a hottie WITH a body, and that was all the push I needed to purchase a couple of their videos and give it a whirl. 3 weeks in, I could already feel how much stronger I was. I saw muscles where there had been none, and I could see a little more of my natural waist as I lost inches.

ANYway, I have always told myself that if I ever really got into a workout routine, I would outfit myself with some fresh workout apparel. I own 2, count ’em, two pairs of workout leggings, and I think it’s time to make a little bit more of an investment in my strength. If you’re on the same page, here’s what I’ve been eyeing lately:

 

Stella McCartney leggings

Ivy Park leggings

Stella McCartney sports bra

Adidas Boyfriend Tee

Nike Hoodie

High Waisted Leggings

Workout Tank

Sports Bralette

Full coverage Sports Bra

Liquid Leggings

Mesh Tank

 

Thoughts? Recs you wanna send my way?

xoxo,

aok

We’re very much on the same page lately! I realized I have one pair of leggings, and some old college sweatpants. Having enough workout clothes on hand makes it much more likely I’ll go to class – if I only have one thing to wear and it’s in the wash it’s way too easy to make excuses. I guess it’s an investment in your health, right :)? Love these finds!
