Improve your Workout Look with 3 Simple Steps

IMG_3229

Working out is way more fun when you’re looking good doing it.  That being said, trust me there are many days when I don’t care what top or shorts I’m wearing, I just want to sweat it out!  Other days, I want to feel good AND look good!

My three go-to tips:

  1. Straighten your hair before putting it into a pony tail.  A straight, silky line of hair swooshing around looks way better than the “I just woke up and this is how my bed-head looks in a ponytail” kind of look.
  2. Bootie shorts.  Enough said.
  3. Fitted top with a cool neckline.  Normally, I’m a t-shirt gal all the way.  An exercise top with an old tee thrown overtop and I’m ready to go!  But if you want to brighten up your look just a bit, pick a more stylish sleeveless top!

And there you go queen of the treadmill or master of the hills, your workout just got a lot more stylish!

Love,

It’s Wedgie Time

Lululemon has come out with a romper to wear running.  Although I’ve never really gotten into fashionable workout clothes…any sports bra and tight black pants will do…I definitely want to be comfortable while I’m putting my body through hell.

Let’s take a step back and examine some hot, fit women.  Imagine Cameron Diaz, in all her muscular glory, (although I don’t particularly find her appealing).  Now imagine her in a onesie…I mean romper.  Sexy or disturbing?  My vote is for disturbing.

My favorite mental image: Imagine Pamela Anderson, back in her Baywatch days, wearing a onesie to run along the beach.  Sexy or disturbing? Okay, so maybe she can make anything look sexy…but I’d still say it’s a definite buzzkill.

Lululemon, I respect your attempt to make workout clothes interesting and fashionable, but try again.  Not every combination is a winner.  Picture chocolate cake with guacamole.  Both are undoubtedly awesome on their own, but together equals disaster.

I’d rather run in peace and look like a ragamuffin than fend off some serious wedgies.

Huffington Post agrees.  I’m sure others do too.  Let’s stop the cruelty! Like this post and join forces with “Women against Workout Wedgies.”  Let’s end the madness, Lululemon.

Run in Peace.
