i haven’t done a sporty/athleisure/gym-wear outfit post in a hot minute, and i’ve been DYING to show off these pants. i mean LOOK AT THEM! i think i’m even more partial to them because they’re a part of the buff bunny collection. and if you know me at all you know i’m obsessed with heidi somers.
surprisingly even though the mesh isn’t stretchy they are still super comfortable and easy to move in. they’re actually one of my favorite pairs of pants to wear for leg day, because they are squat/bend proof. the fabric quality is nice and thick, which means everything’s sucked in and kept in place. basically you’re legs are gonna look goooooood girl. 😉
while i do love this look for an everyday, running around town kind of outfit, i must be honest and say i’d probably never wear this to the gym. i don’t know why, maybe it’s just the modesty, but i can’t bring myself to wear a crop top to the gym. i see girls rock it all the time (sometimes even just a sports bra), but it’s just not for me. i do have a super cute black tank that i wear with these pants though. regardless, an all black gym look is my absolute favorite. #beaBA
also, if you’re wondering how i snagged a pair of these adidas nmd runners that are always sold out, it’s because ya girl has got connections. just kidding. i actually just knew the time and day they were being released and jumped at them quick! i picked mine up at finish line but they sell them at my favorite women’s athletic wear store six02, too!
i’m gonna be honest here for a quick second. i’m obsessed with “what’s in my bag” posts, and i think it’s because of how nosey i tend to be.
it’s the truth! if you tell me you have lipsticks in your handbag at all times, i want to know how many, which ones and where you got them. sorry not sorry. 😛
the very first flex friday post launched last july, and ever since i saw that pop up on my timehop i’ve been wanting to do another post just like it.
it’s crazy how much you can change and grow in only a year. in that first video i was super shy and kind of quiet (hard to believe, i know), i was nervous someone was going to point out the messy hotel background and i thought i needed to look super cute and put together because HELLO! i’m a blogger.
well that’s all false. just about all of my flex friday videos are filmed just before or just after the gym when i look like death. i don’t look cute and half the time i don’t even have makeup on. my videos now are crazy, silly and i leave a lot of bloopers in because i want to be nothing but real with you guys.
in the words of demi lovato, “this is real. this is me.” lol
okay i’m done trying to be sentimental.
let’s get into this post, shall we?
speaking of change, my bag did not (i just love the convenience of a backpack, okay?!), but some of my supplements and gym necessities did!
this might be one of my favorite posts to date, and not because of the outfit. well, maybe kind of because of the outfit, but more because of who i’m getting to work with.
today i’m teaming up with Madewell to kick off the fall season with this simple look. can i just say that i was excited to be able to even shoot a look that incorporated pants AND sleeves without dying of a heat stroke and drowning in my own sweat?!
this chambray and cute pair of sunnies (courtesy of my sweet friends over at Madewell) just make this look so effortless and artful, which is right up their alley.
on a different note, your girl has been saving up to do some serious shopping in new york city in october. basically that means i have a hot date with Madewell in soho. 😉
which brings me to my next point about a sweet discount for all my lovely college gal (and guy) readers!!
did you know Madewell offers an in-store student discount of 15% off YEAR ROUND?! like what?!
and right now they are doing a special deal (which i wish i would have found out sooner about) of 20% in-store with your student id! so if you live close by one, you should definitely jump on that because it ends today (9/15).
these pics ^^ are so old. like a few weeks after my last show old…but i couldn’t remember if i had posted about this fun gym shoot, so here’s a few of my favorite shots.
let’s just say my baby muscles have grown a lot since that day. #gainz
okay, serious time.
i’m getting real with y’all today.
i had a little change in mindset not too long ago that i think is going to totally change the game for me. i’m stepping it up a notch, and i mean business.
i hope you get something out of today’s video, because i know when i filmed this i was in the super motivational feels. i knew that i needed to get this clip before the moment passed.
but i’m not kidding. this next prep season is going to be next level, and I’M SO EXCITED.
before i go, i just wanted to thank all of you lovebugs for the continued love and support!
