What I'm Wearing: Fitness Edition

So my lack of fashion posts has been for a few good reasons. One, my resident photographer and roomie is alwaysss gone (come back Stephanie!). I need to pin her down and hand her my camera one of these days.

Two, and way more true, is I've been basically living in workout clothes when I'm not at work (and when I am at work my dress game has been dismal lately). I'm signed up to run a half marathon in Central Park this Sunday so for the last 2 months all my "down" time has been reserved for spin classes and running. That means pretty much the only thing I've been spending money on is workout clothes, which (un)surprisingly has become a new shopping obsession. There's some cute stuff out there!

Besides my big and necessary splurge of new running sneakers, I've been loving the whole Active line by Old Navy. It's super cute, comfortable and most importantly affordable! Especially for those times when you have so much laundry that you go buy new workout clothes ten minutes before spin class....(guilty). Thankfully I don't feel too guilty because I live in their clothes after work and on weekends now, so it's totally worth it.

Next obsession I will rave about: Swerve. Now, I've done spin classes before. Actually Ive done many before moving to NYC and always loved them. However the obsession with Spin in NYC is on a whole different level. There's the SoulCycle and Flywheel cults that Ive avoided simply because they are so hyped here but when Swerve opened LITERALLY across the street from work, it was hard to resist. One class, and I was hooked. I've been doing it pretty much 1-2 times a week for the last few months (my bank account is crying) and it continues to be some of the hardest workouts I've ever experienced. Every class I leave dripping with sweat looking like I just ran 20 miles but feeling amazing. The staff is wonderful and I can't say enough about it. My coworkers are hooked too and I think sadly for us the word has gotten out because the classes are continually getting sold out faster and faster. If you're in NYC, GO TRY IT. 

Welp, that's all I've got folks. Hopefully after this Sunday when I probably crawl across the finish line I can have my life back! I'm pretty pumped though, not going to lie :) Wish me luck!

  1. Sometimes I feel like we are the same person, because I have been all about the workouts/workout clothes lately too! Minus the half-marathon. Did that once, never again. But you go girl! Central Park will be awesome. Also, I wish I could try Swerve! I've been really into Breathe yoga which is a chain throughout Rochester, but I hear ya- not good for the bank account!

    Sooo glad you mentioned the Old Navy line because I will definitely be checking that out!

    Ok, that's probably enough ranting for this post :)

  2. Old Navy Active clothing is a staple in my wardrobe! I live for their compression leggings. All of their stuff is so cute and comfortable :)

  3. GOOD LUCK this weekend! You will do great, I know it! How are you celebrating after? I bought Old Navy yoga pants a couple months ago and LOVE them. :)
