There’s been a running joke with my friends lately over the clothing I choose to wear. It’s not uncommon for me to go out right after CrossFit (to the coffee shop) and then suddenly find myself hanging around the whole day in my workout gear. Quite honestly, I don’t really mind and my friends don’t care, but we joke about it anyway. And really, it’s the funniest when we head out to dinner and I realize I’m still in my leggings, sports bra, tank top and headband from earlier in the day.
But quite honestly, this is how I feel the most comfortable, the most like myself. Yes, I have my days when I throw on my jeans, a nice blouse, straighten my hair and put on some makeup. And yes, those days are nice but the best are the days when I can be me, I can be comfortable and relaxed.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not the girl who will be all sweaty and gross hanging around at the coffee shop, leaving a lingering stink and dressed all raggedy. The great thing is cute workout clothes are a thing and they make it easier to go from gym to errands to dinner without looking like a total slob.
So how do I do it? It’s all about the right pieces.
- The comfortable yoga pants that every girl can’t live without.
- The sports bra that provides enough support during your workout but isn’t so tight that you can’t wait to take it off.
- The tank top that keeps you cool enough during your workout but light enough that it will dry quickly.
- And finally, the t-shirt, jacket or long sleeve shirt that can go over your tank in a fashionable layering look that helps make the look a bit more “presentable.”
Now don’t get me wrong, there’s a time and a place for everything and this isn’t a look you’d wear to a fancy dinner out but for going from gym to errands or coffee or lunch with friends, this could be just perfect!
My friends over at Sweaty Betty have some super cute looks for running, yoga or dance wear and I think you could make any of those looks work post-workout too! 😉
How do you take your workout wear from gym to day?

Those leggings are so amazing – I’d love all of them! I’m definitely very similar in how I like to transition my gear. I’m hoping to (one day) work for myself so I can call the shots on my dress code. =)
This next year I’m definitely calling the shots on dress code. Well most of the time…I’m sure once and awhile Sam will tell me to put on something nice for once. 😉
