Fashion Finds: New Workout Clothes Haul

Although I’m no stranger to working out, I have certainly “fell off” and with my wedding only 4 months away I’m even more motivated to get back in the gym and work out. I’ve come to realize that I am definitely more motivated to do just about anything when I’m dressed in appropriate, cute attire so I decided I would purchase some basics to get me started. I also implemented an incentive, which allows me to purchase a new fitness item for every 8 weeks I attend the gym on a steady schedule. First incentive item will be the Nike Free 5.0 Running Shoe and if I’m a good girl, I’ll have these babies by my birthday, Feb 26th…wish me luck!

So here’s the loot:

Workout Haul

Workout Haul


Women’s Active by Old Navy Compression Capris $23: ALL of my current workout attire is mostly black so I got 2 pair of these, one in Raspberry Punch and the other in Carbon 3. I REALLY like the elasticized waistband that comes up just over that little pouch. There’s also a hidden coin pocket and it’s a quick-drying fabric, which is certainly ideal (no sweat stains). Great buy!

Women’s Active by Old Navy Jackets $35: Made of the same fabric as the Capri pants, this jacket is ideal for coming and going and the fabric won’t chafe. It’s a great fit and it also has 2 zippered pockets and little thumbholes to keep your hands warm. I got this one in Carbon 2.

Women’s Active by Old Navy GoDRY Graphic Tanks $15: Typically I like the very fitted workout tank tops but because it’s been quite some time since I’ve been to the gym (sucks in belly), I decided to get a couple of loose fitting tops. I got two of these tanks, one in Light Gray (Live. Learn. Burn.) and one in Carbon (Be Happy. Be Bright. Be You.).

4pk Multi Color Socks $7: Not sure why these aren’t on the Old Navy website but they should be. All of my current workout socks are black and I decided to get colorful socks to spruce things up a bit…it’s the little things!

Under Armour Men’s ColdGear Combine Training Tech Gloves $35: One of the most important items I purchased was a new pair of workout gloves. My current gloves are completely split open between the thumb and index finger…which is kind of cool because I’ve been able to slip my index finger out and keep up with my workout on my iPhone but not really cool cause they look a hot mess. I chose these gloves because they have the touchscreen fingertips and because they have the no-slip grip pattern. I got these in Black/Solar.

So here’s to a New Year…and hopefully a New FIT ME :-)

Care to share any good fitness buys?
