Because Sometimes You Want to Look Cute at the Gym

lululemonSAHMs and WAHMs get a bad rap sometimes for wearing workout clothes all day long, but as a work-at-home mom myself, I can tell you that I often put on workout gear instead of regular clothes in the mornings, simply because getting DRESSED for the gym is half the battle!

If I'm dressed and ready to work out, I'm a lot more likely to actually GET MY YOU-KNOW-WHAT TO THE GYM. Make sense?

If you're like me, though, your workout wardrobe is nothing to write home about.

That's why I've scoped out some workout gear options that'll make you look good inside and outside the gym. Added bonus? They're not skin tight, so you won't have to feel self conscious about your figure while you're out and about!

Click through to see a few great options!


AthletaI'm a big fan of this Shiva Tee (Athleta, $42), which is pretty and practical.


Victoria's SecretThis Yoga Off-the-Shoulder tee (Victoria's Secret, $29.50) has a sexy neckline without being too revealing.


AthletaI love that this Tranquility Tank (Athleta, $49) is a lot more interesting than your average gym tank top.

APOne workout clothing secret of mine is to look at low-priced t-shirt shops for interesting options that cost a LOT less than the selections at some of the workout-themed shops. One great example is this Sutton Cowl T (GAP, $24.95). It would look great with a sport bra peeping out underneath!


AthletaFinally, I'm completely crazy about this Zenith Tank (Athleta, $59). The price? Not so much. But a girl can dream, right?

In addition to my advice to look for cute, lightweight knit tops from places like GAP, Forever 21, and Old Navy for your workout wear, I also can advise you to check out TJ Maxx and Marshalls. They generally have LOTS of fitness clothing options. There's really no reason to pay full-price for this stuff.

What do you wear to work out? Would having cute workout clothes help inspire you to do it more often?
