I will buy ALL the workout clothes

I am addicted to buying workout clothes. Like, totally obsessed. I can't stop.

My fave fitness apparel to purchase - workouts pants. I love crazy prints and bright colors. So if I see a colorful pair of workout leggings, I have to have a deep heart to heart with myself. "Do you really NEED these pants?" "How often will you wear them?" "Do they really look flattering on you?"

Most of the time my answers are "YES!" and "All the time!" and "Duh!"

Some of my fave purchases have been...

Stella McCartney by Adidas leopard print leggings (I have a gym bag with the same print!) - They don't sell these pants anymore, but I also LOVE these printed Stella McCartney 3/4 leggings.

CW-X Conditioning Wear Women's 3/4 Stabilyx Tights - Seriously, compression tights changed my life. I did all of my long runs in these when I was training for my last half-marathon. I also wore them during my last half-marathon. They helped keep me from getting sore during and after runs. 

Nike pink splatter print capris - I love wearing these when I teach Piloxing because they're fun and pink! I found this old(ish) pic of me teaching Piloxing! I bought these pants ages ago so I couldn't find them online, but these Nike Allover Print Leggings and these Nike Lady Pro Printed Dot Compression Tights are totally on my wish list.

Puma leopard print capris - These are really hard to show in a photograph because they are black with a black shiny leopard print. You'll have to trust me about their awesomeness. These are also pants I bought awhile ago. But these Puma Women's Gym Color Me Up 3/4 Tights are now on my radar. So cute!

I am in love with all of those things, but my newest fave workout finds have been from Fabletics. It's an activewear company created by Kate Hudson (I love her natural/boho/hippy/glam style) so the pieces are both functional and stylish! 

Here's how it works. You become a VIP member by answering some questions about your fave workouts and your style. At the beginning of each month, Fabletics sends you personalized outfit options. You can purchase an entire outfit (all are under $60!!!), which includes 2-3 pieces. Or you can opt out that month. It's super easy. 

I've been a VIP member for maybe six months and I've bought two outfits (Mostly because I'm trying to cut back on buying workout clothes. Sad face).

Here's what I bought….

1st Outfit: Goddess - Vaasa Tank in black and the Nadi Legging in camo

I'm totally in love with these camo leggings but, to be completely honest, they ripped at the decorative seam on the leg in two places. I was super bummed because they are so cute. It could be because of my voluptuous thighs, but I would like to think most stretchy pants could contain my curvy bod. 

The tank, however, has held up nicely. The straps in the back are very sassy and fun.

2nd Outfit: Trois - Adventura Tank in mint julep camo, Lima Capri in black and the Sevan Sports Bra in pink grapefruit

Even though the camo leggings didn't last, I gave Fabletics another shot and ordered another pair of pants. The Lima Capri is where it's at!! These leggings are so comfortable, flattering and easy to move in. I've worn them to do yoga, to go running, to teach Piloxing and (don't tell anyone) on an airplane and to go to Target! (I totally believe in only wearing workout clothes to workout or to run errands post-working out).

I'm also totally in love with the Adventura Tank. This tank really is versatile in that you can wear it to workout or you can wear it as a cute tank. I've worn this tank to do yoga, I've worn it to travel and I've worn it with shorts this summer.

The low impact bra is perfect for yoga or just hanging around the house. Love it!

Fabletics just came out with some new outfits that I'm dying for!! (But I'm holding back because I'm REALLY trying to be all adult right now and save my $$)

Gaviota Capri in black - These are sexy little workout pants with mesh paneling on the lower leg. I could see wearing these in yoga class or barre class.

Lima Capri in high intensity print - These colorful leggings are sold out at the moment, but when they come back in stock I want!! Since I already have the Lima Capri in black, I know they fit well and are super flattering.

Embra Tank - This comes in the high intensity print and has a super cute cutout in the back.

Boracay Outfit - This comes with the Havana Coverup, the Moro Short and the Ayni Sports Bra. You can get the shorts and the bra in the high intensity print, which I'm totally in love with. The Havana Coverup top has a cute little cutout in the back.

I might be a little too obsessed with this print.
