If you need a motivation boost when it comes to working out, I can fully recommend upgrading your workout wear. Makes the colder mornings a little more bearable. When your PE kit looks this good you could even wear it for the school run whether you plan to work out or not. What, me? Swerve the gym and head straight to coffee? Never.
I’m having a moment with activewear. Just want it all. At the affordable end is H&M. H&M sportswear is a pleasant surprise, the leggings in particular. Supportive, flattering and a great choice of styles. I have the Yoga Tights in Black/Pink Patterned, £19.99, but look how nice the Sports Tights, £24.99, are? Their full length leggings are quite long so best for tall girls (my height, 5′ 6″ plus I would say).
A more luxe option are the Acai Activewear Berry Compression Leggings, currently £54* (from £74) at UK Lingerie. My current faves, great quality, thick and smooth. If you haven’t worn patterned gym leggings before try these – super flattering. I pair them with the Lole Activewear Hunter Hoodie and feel very chic when drinking my, ahem, doing my press ups. And the matching Acai Sports Bra, £35 (was £45) is possibly the best looking sports bra I have ever seen. If only I had the matching abs.
Til next time,
