today’s look…stripes on stripes.

happy monday lovebugs!
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!

flex friday: UPDATED what’s in my gym bag!

HAPPY FRIDAY, LOVEBUGS!!

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!

[ 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 ]
i don’t think anyone truly understands how happy athleisure makes me.
i mean, HELLO?! it’s finally acceptable to wear gym clothes in public (can i get an amen?), and chic gym wear is now available just about anywhere.
who doesn’t want to be on trend AND comfy and the same time? that’s what i thought.
i’m not super comfortable wearing super cropped crop tops or straight up sports bras (blame it on the long torso), and you definitely won’t find this girl in spandex shorts anywhere but at home, however i have been taking bits and pieces of inspo from some of my favorite gals.
like tying up a simple top to hit just above the waist of your pants (yes, leggings are pants.), or maybe throwing a windbreaker (hello 90s) over a sports bra. now that i could do!
and don’t forget the shoe game. it’s the quintessential part of the athleisure trend. fashion sneakers are all the rage right now…so keep your gym shoes for the gym. 😉
i rounded up some of the pieces i’ve been eyeing or have bought recently.
adidas is killing the game, let me tell you.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1472089968792?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);
just realized that everything is black, white and gray….no sorry about it. 😛
