Add These Cute Workout Clothes Into Your Workout Plans

30 Jul

Have you been watching the Olympic games? Stupid question! Of course you have. My favorite station to watch at the gym, BRAVO, has been showing the Olympic games non-stop, instead of Real Housewives re-runs, so I’m proud to say I’m really I’m the spirit of welllll… being a citizen of the world, and watching the best athletes in the world duke it out.

Not only are these athletes competing in the Olympic games super way talented, they also have stellar workout clothes. This sort of makes me feel a bit bad that I’m still using a t-shirt from my college roommate’s high school years (I got my undergrad six years ago) and my eighth grade gym shorts (great investment mom!) as my workout clothes. So, perhaps it’s time for me to enter 2012 and buy some new workout clothes, maybe?

I decided to do some preliminary browsing for new workout clothes online, just to see what’s out there, and I found some really cute things! Whew knew, apparently some people, besides those competing in the Olympic games, do have a bit of shame and actually buy cute workout clothes for the gym?!? Perhaps I will hop on this train…

Cute Workout Clothes (and Accessories) I Found While Online Window Shopping:

  • Jillian Michaels Collection by K-Swiss Women’s Racer Tank (comes in lots of colors!)

  • Jillian Michaels Collection by K-Swiss Women’s Favorite Capri (comes in lots of colors!)

  • Under Armour Heatgear Women’s UA Victory Tank Top

  • YogaColors Raglan Pullover

  • New Balance Women’s Racerback Printed Top

  • MJ Soffe Neon Workout Shorts

  • Under Armour Rib Tank

  • Gaiam Metro Gym Bag- Chai Yoga Mat Bag

  • Gaiam Printed Yoga Mat (Damask)

  • ASICS Women’s Hyper-Rocketgirl SP Running Shoe

What do you think? Should I buy any of these? Will you buy any of these?

Bribe Yourself to Exercise with These Cute Workout Clothes & Accessories

30 Dec

Although exercise is a necessary part of healthy living, it isn’t always easy to find the motivation to work out. Give yourself a fresh dose of workout inspiration by updating your exercise wardrobe. Never underestimate the power of cute clothes and accessories.

Check Out These Cute Workout Clothes:

1.) Champion Workout Tank: Use this cute tank top as your motivation to workout! It comes a variety of different colors, so you can buy one for each day of the week.

2.) Nike Running Shorts: If you want durable workout clothes, these Nike shorts are a really great choice! I’ve had two pairs of pretty much this exact pair of Nike shorts for four years, and they still look brand new. And they get a lot of use.

3.) Champion Workout Pants: Love these workout pants! The stripe around the hip will slim you down and it looks totally cute. Buy these pants and use them as your inspiration to workout.

4.) Under Armour Gym Tote: You have to have something to carry your workout clothes to and from the gym, so why not do it in style? This Under Armour tote is cute and womanly, yet also perfectly functional.

5.) YogaColors Pullover: There’s a girl in my yoga class that wears sweatpants with a bleached out arse and a t-shirt donning a lizard to every class. Don’t be that girl. You need cute clothes for yoga class. This YogaColors pullover has a super adorable off-the-shoulders style, and it’s long enough to cover your back during down dog.

6.) Bella Cropped Yoga Pants: Even though yoga can make you work up a sweat, it’s not acceptable to wear shorts to class, as some of the positions will cause you to give your fellow yogi’s quite a show. These adorable Bella cropped yoga pants provide the perfect balance between heat control and coverage.

7.) North Face Fleece Jacket: When it’s cold outside, you need something to put over your workout clothes when heading in and out of the gym. Unless you’re going for the homeless look, you don’t want to pair sweatpants and a pea coat together. I have two North Face fleece jackets for wearing to the gym and I love them!

8.) Nike Women’s LunarEclipse+ Running Shoes: Running shoes can be both functional and cute, and these Nike LunarEclipse+ running shoes are just that! Make these stylish running shoes your motivation to work out.

9.) Sansa Clip: Cute clothes aren’t the only thing you need for a trip to the gym, it’s also important to bring along some music for workout inspiration. I’ve had a Sansa Clip for years now. It’s tiny size makes it great for working out, plus you can clip it right to your workout clothes. Who needs an iPod, when you can get this great quality product for so much cheaper?!

10.) New Kids on the Block Hangin’ Tough Album: With hits such as “The Right Stuff,” “Cover Girl,” “My Favorite Girl,” “What’Cha Gonna Do (About It),” and of course “Hangin’ Tough,” you’ll find all your motivation to workout right on this cd!

Pittsburgh Fashion – The #3 Biggest Fashion Disaster in the Country

19 Jul

It’s official Pittsburgh, according to GQ magazine, we are the #3 worst fashion disaster in the country. The only cities that ranked worse than
us were Boston and Los Angeles. Even our favorite places such as Cleveland, Philadelphia, and the freaking JERSEY SHORE received higher ratings than us. Yowza.

I can’t say that I disagree with the writer’s main point though — Steeler’s jerseys are not an acceptable form of daily attire. You’d never know this by walking the streets of anywhere within a 50 mile radius of this city though. Yinzers wear Steelers jerseys to work, to the store, out to the bars, and to every other public establishment on a year-round basis. It’s easy to forget this living in Pittsburgh, but normal cities wear their team’s football jerseys on game day, or maybe even game weekend, but not to like their weddings.

Come on guys, you've got more than a fashion disaster on your hands if you think wearing this guy's jersey on a date is a good idea.

Men of Pittsburgh — you are a nationally ranked fashion disaster. Step it up. It is not okay to pick a lady up for a date wearing a Steeler’s jersey, unless you are taking her to watch a Steeler’s game. If your date does not involve watching the Steelers in a football game, put on a real shirt.

Same goes for you ladies. Have some shame. Do you really want to go out on a date wearing an article of clothing that the guy probably has in his own closet? Ya, that’s real hot. Leave that Steeler’s jersey at home, unless you’re actually going out to watch the game.

Wear a Steeler's jersey to a football game, during football season, not to work on a Wednesday in July.
