The Fashion Side of Fitness

I’ve never really had fashionable fitness wear before. If I went to the gym, on a hike or for a jog around the neighborhood, I would just throw on any pair of shorts I could find and an old t-shirt. It wasn’t until the last couple of years that I’ve realized how what I wear when working out matters to me. It changes the way I feel about working out. When I slip on workout clothes that not only look amazing, but feel amazing and a pair of athletic shoes that fit me like a glove, I’m more motivated to get some exercise.

My son and I joined a gym and thanks to him motivating me, I’ve been working out regularly. I am the queen of putting everything else before exercise. Can you relate? It got to the point where I told myself enough was enough. The dishes and laundry can wait. We can eat a little later on weeknights if that means putting a trip to the gym first. I can give up some TV watching time and that book I’m trying to finish. Even my work, which I absolutely love and look forward to everyday…can wait. I’m putting my health as a priority and that feels so good.

This week is spring break for us and the kids and I are enjoying a little Austin, TX staycation. After a bit of rain in the morning, the sun broke out yesterday and it was gorgeous. There were a couple of places I wanted to take the kids to and there was a hike my teenage son wanted to take us on. We started at Mt. Bonnell for a beautiful view of our city. Then we headed to Mayfield Park where the peacocks roam around. After that, it was off to the Hope Gallery where some SXSW artists were creating some amazing graffiti art. We ended our day with a hike at the Wildlife Basin Nature Preserve. Overall, it was a fantastic day.

What am I wearing you ask? I’m wearing workout clothes and shoes I could wear every day. When you combine fashion and fitness together, you get one great outfit that’s ready for the gym or a day out with the kids.

My shoes are ASICS GEL-Noosa Tri 10 Women’s Running Shoe from Rack Room Shoes. I knew as soon as I opened the box, these shoes were made for me. From the fun colors to the comfort, I love everything about this shoe. It features a GEL® cushioning system that is unlike any running shoe I’ve had before. I have received so many compliments on these shoes. They are just as comfortable as they are pretty. 🙂

If you need athletic shoes for the entire family, head on over to or in-store to check out their selection.

My workout clothes are from my newest obsession, Fabletics. This is Kate Hudson’s brand-new line of activewear and I’m not sure if I can gush about it enough. From the high quality of the fabrics and fashionable pieces, to the fact the outfits are put together for you – this is my new go-to source for work out clothes. I purchased the sports bra, top and pants all for under $40 for my first order, which was 50% off. Each month I can choose a new outfit at their VIP price. Since summer is around the corner, I think I’ll purchase some shorts. If you need new workout clothes, I encourage you to visit Fabletics today.

  1. I agree Julie. Once you start making fitness a priority it’s not as hard. I wear asics for around the house and comfort and style. The color is totally you!!! Love the photo;s.

    • They are great Ellen! I can’t wait to order again next month. The pants are so soft.
