During the week, and let’s be real, on the weekends too, I live in my workout gear. It’s comfortable, easy to clean if Owen spits up on me (why does this only happen when you’re wearing your best clothes?!) and is perfect for those hot sweaty days!
A few years ago, my workout gear was abysmal. Think old college sorority t-shirts, ripped sports bras, ratty sneakers and shorts I’d had since high school. What did I care, I was just going to the gym to sweat in it, right? Partially true, but now activewear is such a big part of my wardrobe since I wear it so often. And, wearing those nasty old pieces every day just doesn’t make you feel good about yourself.
One of my favorite places to shop for activewear is Nordstrom because they have so many different brands and price points to pick from. They also have one of my favorite brands—Zella! If you’re not familiar with it, you should be! It’s affordable and the quality is so great!
These Zella leggings fit so well. They’re the perfect amount of stretch and structure and the mesh cut-outs are awesome, they really help keep you cool. Typically I opt for black leggings, but stepped out of my comfort zone and got this pretty tan color that’s gorgeous in person. It pairs perfectly with blue and pink too!
Cute Workout Tops
I couldn’t resist this top either! It’s the prettiest shade of light blue and does a good job of making me look tanner than I really am, ha!
So often, I’m going from walking the dog or going to the park with Owen to meet friends for lunch or coffee and this top makes me feel a little more pulled together and less like I just left the gym! It’s technically a workout top, but could easily be worn with white jeans, a denim skirt or a cut-offs. I love when I find pieces that do double duty!

Where do you stand on activewear? Do you like having cute pieces that you can go from the gym to lunch in or wear your old stuff like I used to?!
