Week Night Quick Outfit Flip

Hello Hello!!! Now weeknights for everyone are hectic, and this week especially was very  hectic and busy.  I felt like I was running around the entire time and I had no time for my work out.  Well one day this week I was meeting my friend for a late dinner so I figured I could fit in a quick workout before heading to dinner.  But I had to do a quick flip from my sweaty gym clothes to a cute outfit.

I even took this picture post workout, hence the fact that my face is super red.  I did cardio this day so I was real gross.  Anyways how do you go from this to presentable for a dinner.  I decided to keep the outfit real simple, just skinny jeans and a v-neck noting too fancy.

I think the change went really well, there wasn’t a way to fully take care of the red checks but I think the outfit looked really chill and put together even when I was like 30 minutes post workout.  I did have a debate about the shoes right up until I left, and I actually changed into a pair of Toms flats.

So the key to a quick change was really just keeping it simple no frills just jeans and a T-shirt.  I also had the outfit picked out in my head prior to going to the gm otherwise I would have been super lazy.

New workout pants

Hello hello!! Currently sitting in an airport waiting to board a plane while writing this.  I wanted to share some sweet new workout pants.  I been wearing them travelling and have been getting compliments left and right. 

Of course they have mesh in them that seems to be the only kind of workout pants I buy.  Some workout pants that have cut off like this, the transition seam can dig in and be annoying. Ordering online that was a concern since this was a new brand that I have never bought before.  These pants don’t do that, they are actually really amazing.  They have so much stretch in them they never feel tight.

I worked out in them the other day and had no issues. They did squats, lunges, lifting all amazingly.  I’d for sure recommend these for casual wear as well as working out.  This brand onzie might become a go to for me for workout gear, that’s how amazing they are.

(They are available on Amazon for prime which makes me very inclined to buy them again)

Dance Mesh Tights

Hello Hello!!  Now we all know I love Reebok workout pants, I personally think they are the best and at the most reasonably price. I said in my last post about workout pants that if they made them in more colors I would buy them.  Well here I am talking about a similar pair of tights in a purple color.

Reebok has made these dance mesh tights in a purple color.

So I did a barre workout and a cardio workout in these to test them out and get a feel for how much I like them.  To be very honest, I do not like them as much as I like other mesh moves tights that Reebok makes (seriously make those in more colors).  So these are a little odd, they are tight all the way up my legs which is fine, but the waist is is a little lose.  When I was doing the barre workout I had to pull them up more then I wanted to.  During the cardio workout they did stay on me but I was sweatier so they may have lead too that.

Now with all that being said I still do like me, I love the mesh cutouts in the legs.  If all my workout pants could have some mesh cutouts I would love it.  So these pants workout well for me and look good on my legs. I will say that you should be careful with your sizing, I typically wear XS in Reebok and that is the size I have in the other mesh moves tights.  But they are tight on the legs, so I would recommend buying 2 sizes and once and returning the ones that don’t fit.

These workout pants are amazing

Hello Hello Hello! I don’t know about you guys but I workout all the time. Workout pants that are great for a workout, comfortable and fit well are hard to find.  I really like workout pants with a thick waist band (to avoid getting love handles), high-waisted (to avoid love handles again), fabric that will wick sweat away, and if long pants I love mesh inserts.

Workout clothing is so expensive, Nike, Adidas and Under Armour will all set you back a pretty penny for a good pair of work out pants.  I have found a workout pants from a brand that I really like and can find great deals on, Reebok.

Eeek!! These pants make me so happy! I was having a really bad day today and these were delivered and changed my mood around.  These pants are so comfortable and I love the mesh inserts.  Now I would have recommended them without even working out in them but thought I should at least try them out at the activity they were meant for. I loved them so much that I wore long black pants to the gym (which I walk to) on an 80 degree day, I really did not want to take them off.  They are so comfy and have so much stretch that I actually really like to wear them.   Recommendation to order a size down, these seem to run a little large, I usually wear a size small but bought an x-small.

Sorry some of them are dark against my hard-wood floors they are a navy blue pant and a dark grey.  The ones on the right are the first Reebok pants I bought early last year at a Reebok outlet by my parents house and these pants convinced me to continue to try Reebok pants.  I love these pants they are my favorite pair of workout pants, especially in the summer.  I tried to find these pants so I could link them to you but I could not find them, nor a similar pair (feel free to look around the site).  The one of the left are here in black and middle here in a few colors.

I love them all, wear them all and recommend them all.  They are all more reasonably priced then some of the other brands out there.  Happy working out (haha I realize oxymoron).

Seriously though those top black pants – amazing.  I would buy them in more colors if they were available.

Workout Clothes

So I spend a significant time of my life in gym clothes but finding comfortable gym clothes (pants in particular) are hard to find.  But when I find great gym clothes I kind of want to wear them all the time.  I will never judge someone for their clothing at the gym because just making it to the gym is a big enough challenge.  Usually when I am at the gym I just want to know where people got their workout pants.

So my extent of matching is this fleece with these pants, and I just happen to be wearing them on the same day.  So as many people will relate to, finding great workout pants that look good, are functional and breathable is hard.  I have found these Fila pants from Kohls and they are Amazing.  Not only do they look good (in my opinion) they are the most comfortable pair that I own.  I loved them so much this is the second pair I bought and I would by another but summer is coming and I am transitioning away from pants to capris. The mesh part wraps around the leg behind the knee which makes them look awesome.  Advice on the pants is they do run small in my opinion so it might take a few tries.

Shirts are much easier to come by then pants, usually I just wear old tank tops from college that I no longer wear in my regular life.  This shirt I bought, bonus points for the people who know its a reference to Gilmore Girls.  Mrs. Patty’s School of Ballet. This is a comfy tank and I wear it all the time, does not ride up and great for working out.
