Well, well, well, if it’s not another “Target Tuesday” post on a different day. Welcome to my world of end of the school year madness, beginning of summer break and just life. I am just trying to keep up and stay sane for the well being of my family right now.
I think we are all doing this in some way or another. Just trying to be the best we can be and start over again the next day.
One of things I never thought I would ever talk about on my blog is exercise but it’s has simply helped me be happier and more present in my life. So with that being said, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite kind of workout and/or atheleisure gear. Yes, I do wear leggings and tanks but only for the sake of exercising. Leggings are not pants friends! I repeat, they are not!
Okay, now we have that covered, let me tell you what I love to wear.
While I love my Target active wear and accessories, I have also included some other favorite brands that are good quality, yet wallet friendly.
I love these high waisted leggings by C9 Champion and bonus they are on sale for $20! These leggings hug you in all the right places, so very flattering on most body types.
Another great quality and price are these Gap and Athleta leggings that you will see me wearing a lot. The material is super soft. I never feel restricted or self-conscious when wearing these. I also love that I can wear pretty much any top, mixing and matching patterns and colors with the stripes.
I also love these Powervita tights by Athleta as I can wear them all year round. They come in all different colors too. Although they are a little higher price point than Gap or Target, they are totally worth it. They will not stretch or fade and did I mention they come in like ten different colors.
If you are not a big legging kind of gal, these are my favorite athleisure pants. I run errands and travel in these joggers or city pants a lot. I don’t feel like I am a bum when wearing these or just stepped out of the gym. I will usually add a cool tee and denim jacket or depending on the weather a fun sweater and tennis shoes like these favs from Target.
Now, for the tops, that you can actually move in and still feel put together.
This top I have in three different colors because I love it that much. Right now, it is only $12! I love that you you can tie it in a knot or not! Either way, it’s a great top to wear alone or layer with this lightweight sweat shirt by Joy Lab.
Another favorite top is by Athleta which is a little on the higher in, but again so worth the price. It’s super soft and material doesn’t make you sweat even more like some active wear tops can.
Finally, I have to mention some of my favorite at home workout gear when I can’t get to my barre class.
I love any kind of resistance bands like these from Target, because I can easily pack them and take them on vacation if I want to try to burn a few calories. You can get them at whatever resistance you want such as low, medium or high so you can work at whatever level suits you.
So now you have all you need to get “fit and happy” in style (of course) and at a price that is easy on the budget. No excuses! It’s time to take care of you friends and look good while doing it!
