Friday Favorites: Get Active

First I’d like to wish a warm welcome to 2015 and say I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. Next, let’s talk about resolutions. There’s not really a firm consensus over whether its good or bad to make resolutions. I prefer to make goals, but unless I write them down I end up forgetting them. That said, one of my major goals continuing into 2015 was to be healthier. I’m definitely not good at this. Sometimes life becomes so stressful the idea of working out or being active just feels even more unappealing. That said, if your resolution is to get healthy and lose weight: great! I prefer to not put my journey that way only because I feel expectations are just so high and feeling like I’ve let myself down is horrendous. Why am I even sharing this? Well, resolving to get active in 2015 means getting to buy a whole new wardrobe of active wear!

Active wear has become kind of a really fashionable thing. Yoga pants are everywhere not just yoga studios. While I don’t really understand that (especially to brunch. Everyone knows you didn’t just work out), I’m entirely guilty of wearing them to run out to Starbucks or to the bank. There’s so many options. Long gone are the unitards, off the shoulder sweatshirts, and legwarmers of yesteryear. The best part is it’s all on sale right now for the new year. Old Navy has some particularly good deals if you’re looking for affordable pieces to get started with!

I’ve put together 3 active wear looks featuring some of my favorite companies (Adidas obviously). I’m really obsessed with the Stella McCartney for Adidas range and two of my favorite pieces are included. The yoga mat featured is by Orla Kiely for Target and something I actually use for yoga & pilates. I’m obsessed with it. I’m not sure why it took me so long to actually purchase one. See? I’m no fitness expert!

So get out, get active, and look fashionable while doing it!
