Now that the 4th of July is behind us, I feel like summer is truly in full swing. One thing that I’ve wanted to do since the warmer temperatures arrived is to clean out my workout clothes and add in some brighter, cute summer workout gear. Some of my stuff is old and very worn out (i.e. running shorts that are 5+ years old – GROSS) and most of it is very dark (gray, navy, black). I have a few brighter tanks and I find myself reaching for them over and over.
So, I finally ordered a couple brighter tops and bottoms, and am trying to decide what to get next. I’ve also been trying to buy “outfits” since I really do love it when my workout clothes match…and honestly, it’s so rare that it happens. I used to never care, but I’ve found that I just feel cuter and more confident when I love my workout outfit, and hey, if it helps me kick it on my tempo runs a little bit more, I’ll take it. (You can see my weekly workouts here.)
Cool Summer Vibes
1 – I love this bright color & think it’d be so cute under white tops.
2 – I’m obsessed with mint green lately, and I like tanks that are a little bit looser since I can always tie a knot in them if I want them to be snugger.
3 – I have this bra and LOVE it. It’s so soft and provides enough support for running without being a nightmare to get on and off.
4 – I love all the tie-detailing on workout clothes right now. This is subtle but cute.
5 – I have the black version of this watch and am OBSESSED. I cannot run without it. But the new green version makes me swoon.
6 – I used to shy away from white workout tops because I was worried they’d get dirty. But, I just really love them, and I’ve seen a few people at CrossFit wear white tops. If they can do it, so can I! (See also: bleach 😉 )
7 – Love this shade of blue and the wide waistband.
8 & 9 – I like having a pair of “normal” sneakers that aren’t my running shoes and aren’t CrossFit shoes (since those can be heavy to create stability when lifting). I use my normal sneakers to walk Maizey and for CrossFit workouts that have a lot of rebounding (box jumps, double unders, etc.). These are cute & look comfy.
10 – Again, mint green everything please. Thanks. Love the moto detailing on these.
Warm Summer Vibes
1 – I want this bra in every color, but especially the hot pink.
2 – I have these sneakers in dark gray & coral and am OBSESSED. (Read my review here.) But holy, the pink ones are calling my name.
3 – This bra comes in 3 colors and has the cutest detailing on the back.
4 – I really like the cut of this tank. I feel like it’d be super flattering + provide extra coverage, which is a nice bonus.
5 – J.Crew’s collaboration with New Balance has me swooning. These capris are 30% off right now too!
6 – I have this tank and wear it an embarrassing amount. Like I told ya, I need more color in my workout wardrobe.
7 – HOT PINK SHORTS? YES PLEASE.
9 – I ordered these shorts yesterday and can’t wait for them to arrive! Having bright shorts will give my dark tanks some more life.
