From Gym to Street

From Gym to Street

Here is my confession of the day:

With my schedule in it’s current state, the only time I am really able to squeeze in a workout during the week is at 5:45am.  In a weird, twisted, masochistic sort of way, I actually enjoy an early morning high intensity spin class to clear my mind for the day ahead.  The downside is that with school bus pick-ups, pre-school drop-offs, client meetings, household errands and appointments, a shower is not in the cards until much later in the day.  Sometimes, depending on my schedule, not until I’m getting ready for bed.  Sorry, I know that’s gross.

This state of nastiness all day is actually NOT as bad as you may think.  1) I wash my hands, face, neck and chest as soon as I get home  2) I remove my drenched shirt and swap into something light, loose and layered (my 3 L’s!) 3) I reapply deodorant 4) I throw in some dry shampoo and style my hair in a cute headband or braid.

See, not TOTALLY disgusting!

The crucial factor to pulling off this gym to street transition without looking like total bum is finding great workout clothes.  Lucky for you, athletic wear is becoming one and the same with casual wear and at ALL price points.  I’ve recently started to venture out of my Lululemon bubble (#lovemesomelulu) and test out other brands with great results!  Athleta, Ellie, Adidas, Nike and Target make some wonderful styles and their price points are a little (or more often, A LOT)  more wallet-friendly than some of Lululemon’s goods. Which obviously means you can buy more of them 🙂

So, what’s YOUR gym uniform?  More importantly, am I the only stinky one out there?

Stella

    I totally admire you just throwing clothes on after and going out! I sweat wayyy too much when I run and it makes my hear look all sorts of greasy. No amount of deodorant in the world would help after a run. This one has to shower. 🙂

      Thanks Tianna! If you have a Target nearby, def check out the athletic-wear dept! I was pleasantly surprised by all of the cute styles that look way more expensive than they are 🙂

      Thanks so much! They were a great find. If you happen to be in the legging market, do know that the C9 line @ Target runs true to size, borderline a little big! Have a great weekend!
