#CCM: Clothing Crush Monday

I have a confession. I have not purchased new work out clothes in well over a year. How I’m still able to wear my workout gear without scarring society is beyond me.

I have another confession. I will probably not purchase new workout gear for at least another two months. It’s just not feasible at the moment. So what am I doing in the mean time? Drooling over these various capri length workout pants and tops and accessories that I must have or I will probably die.

 

1) Under Armour

One things I must give Under  Armour props for is that they design pants for girls with a little cushioning. Seriously Nike take notes. Nike pants hit my thighs and I can literally hear the fabric laughing at me. Under Armour gets my body issue where my a$$ takes up 90% of my pants and will pull them down while running if not properly contained. Thank you Under Armour!

2) Target C9 Tops

Target has some great, affordable work out gear. I like everything but their pants. I think the pants are overpriced and not that great quality. But their tops are inexpensive and last a good amount of time. I usually work out in a t-shirt but lately the t-shirt is getting annoying while working out. It’s getting in the way. I love these tops.

3) lululemon

What is a work out gear post without a little lululemon? Frankly I think there’s bit too much hype around lulu but that doesn’t stop me from wanting everything they sell. What I like most about lulu is their headbands. They are thick enough to hold back my mane without looking super gross. The secret is little silicone grips they put on the inside of the band to secure your hair.

4) Socks

Good socks are the key to a good workout. Currently I’m obsessed with Balega socks. They are incredibly soft but have a good amount of compression support. There are no good pics of them online and I’m def not gonna take a pic of mine to share. But check them out.

5) Hokas!

I know, I know guys I talk about these ALL THE TIME. I have yet to go try them on or buy them. It’s on the list of things to do. But I am SALIVATING for a pair of these.

There you have it. The workout gear I’m currently drooling for. One day my prince will come who will be able to support my unhealthy obsession with spandex!

It’s funny sometimes the things that you dont mind spending money on..I want my whole sock drawer to be full of these haha. my friend just introduced me to another sock brand called Feetures…another thing is saw at a race expo…they are awesome as well…not sure which ones i like better yet tho!

    • Bondi bands I’m going to have to check out ASAP. Socks I can justify the more money because they are responsible for keeping my feet from hating myself while running. I’m gonna check out Feetures too!

      Thanks for the tips!!
