It has been a while since I’ve done a post about workout clothing, so I wanted to do one today! I have been working out 4-6x a week (usually training 3x a week and running 2-3 other days) since October. And have been thinking about treating myself to a new workout set or two.
I wanted to add: I used to be afraid of color or pattern (they do make my thighs look a little bigger) but I don’t really care anymore. I pretty much always would wear a black workout set and a white tank. It all goes back to my mantra of wearing what you want… I am not throwing out my black leggings by any means, but these days when I buy something new, I am buying happy, colorful, (ideally!) energizing pieces that make me feel excited to hit the gym.

Some Sporty Things
I love Girlfriend Collective. I have several of their sets. The Paloma Bra and Compression Leggings are my personal favorites.
I think my next set is going to be this floral bra and leggings set from Tory. Love.
My most worn pullover. It’s big and comfy (size down) and really cute. I have the heather grey.
These are the best shorts. I have several pairs. I love them as they are comfortable but not too short. Just can’t do a booty short or even traditional running shorts… they are TOO SHORT! For running, walks, etc!
My favorite socks. I buy them in bulk (only in white!).
I have these leggings in blue and black. And am eyeing the green.
I worked with GoHydrate last month and got hooked. And I ran out and ended up ordering more using my code (it still works – Grace gets you 15% off). I put one of these in my water bottle and drink it throughout my workout. I have noticed I drink more water when I do this. For a water bottle, I like a nice big one. I alternate between this one from Corkcicle and this one from S’well.
These are my favorite running sneakers. I pretty much only wear Nike sneakers for working out as they fit my arch really well. I will tell you that you should get a gait analysis at a running store (that’s what I did). Everyone has really specific needs for sneakers.
Vuori is another favorite brand. This is probably my most worn workout top and you know how much I love their joggers.

AMEN to the Bombas love. I am a convert 1000000% TMI : My feet used to be AWFUL after working a 12 hour nursing shift. Like complaints from my boyfriend across the room bad. Now…NEVER! They are so soft, so great, and their customer service is fantastic.
YES!!! Truly the greatest socks.
Why only white socks? Is it just for appearances, or are they better somehow?
Appearances! I just don’t like the way colored socks look. No other reason!
I wear all black but different, brightly colored socks. That’s my way of being fun.
Congratulations on sticking with your workout routine. I am fighting my way out of a pandemic/perimenopause rut and it is hard.
I love that! And thank you, I struggle a lot too, it is not always easy!
