Fitness | Fashionably Fit

As a true fashionista at heart, I always want to be stylish and I may have a slight obsession with workout gear. Maybe “shopaholic” would better describe this obsession rather than using fashion as an excuse haha! I like to think I justify these purchases since I usually workout about 5 times a week.

Usually I don’t opt for shorts at the gym, however on this occasion I was hitting one of my favourite trails for a run!

My shirt is from Forever 21, I love the soft fabric which keeps me cool and of course, the crisscross detailing. Forever 21 has a wide variety of activewear available in stores now, which is always great.  A girl can never forget a good sports bra, this is just a generic grey crisscross style.

As for my floral shorts, they are the Tracker Short II from Lululemon. I could honestly not resist picking these up, they were the last pair!! For me, Lululemon is one of the most dangerous stores for me to enter, I almost never leave empty handed. If you’re patient, you can find some good deals in their sale section.

I love how the shorts have a built in liner, keeping everything in place. The zipper pocket is a must for me whenever I’m driving to a trail!

Where do you shop for your workout gear?

    Love your shorts!! I've gotten my running gear from H&M, they've got nice bright stuff in and not too expensive too! I've also seen that Primark has a section with gym clothes, unfortunately everything I like is sold out in size 8 🙁 Check out my blog 🙂 x

      Thanks Sara! Oooh I should definitrly check out H&M, I've never really looked for active wear there! Ugh all the popular sizes always sell out, it's the worst lol.

    These shorts are seriously the cutest! I never go to Lululemon because I find everything is a bit too expensive for me, and I seriously do not have any will power, and would buy everything in site! Eventually though I would like to buy a pair of their leggings because I hear they are most comfortable! xxAlexandra | The A Style | Beauty and lifestyle
