About twice a year I work with Nordstrom to highlight ACTIVE WEAR, and today is one of those days! And whether you are one of those people who loves to exercise (#goodforyou) or one of those people that just does so on occasion (when your jeans get to tight. ahem.) then today’s post is for you! I’ve got one cute outfit for you as well as several other suggestions for great pieces to add to your active wear wardrobe!
Let’s start with the pants. I’ve been a big fan of Zella live in leggings for 2 years now. And I’ve received tons of e-mails from y’all that state that you love them too! In fact, I know many readers that used to be hardcore Lululemon devotees, that now buy Zella. #whoah
Here’s what you need to know about the leggings: they don’t show sweat, they hide muffin top, they don’t slip down, and they slenderize you. HELLO. If you are 5’4″ or shorter, I would consider the midi length, because the full-length are several inches too long on me. As you can see here, they come in 3 different lengths in basic black.
Note: I have NO idea why the first two leggings are crossed out! They are still available and don’t show as crossed out in the draft?!? Actually, I’m now noticing that several things are crossed out. I’m looking into it, but haven’t found an answer yet!
THESE are the pants that I ended up getting for myself! I thought the colors were fun and I liked that they were cropped!
Sadly, they pretty much sold out last night after I posted them on ig and facebook. The stock must have been very low. 🙁 UPDATE: THE LEGGINGS ARE RE-STOCKED IN ALL SIZES!!!!!!!!!
There are tons of other colors and patterns available in Zella pants as well! Check out some of these!
This outfit is of course perfect for heading to the gym. But let’s be honest, it’s just as perfect for running to the grocery store, soccer games, car pool duty, taco dates, WHATEVER! 😉
Size References: I’m wearing a small in the pants, so they are true to size. I always wear a small in Zella pants. I’m wearing a medium in the tee, so I sized up a size. I always size up a size in Zella tops and jackets. I’m wearing a small in the Northface vest.
Get My Look For Yourself Here:
I’m really excited about THE VEST. I’ll of course wear it with work out gear, but I also think it will be cute with jeans, a long sleeve tee, and either my Shoreline Converse or sneakers! The fit is so cute! Notice how it’s longer in the back and the sides have slits so your tee will peek out from under it. And you can’t tell in these pictures, but the vest has pocket! Look above at my picture to see the pockets.
And I want you to pay special attention to my socks. BECAUSE THEY’RE AWESOME. Yep, that’s right. These athletic socks are AWESOME. They are cushy and comfy, and that little tab on the back keeps your heel from rubbing the back of your shoes! I bought a 3 pack of these several months ago, and I just bought this pack as well….because now other socks just won’t do. Now I have sock standards. 😉
Here are some seriously cute tops:
And here are some vests and jackets:
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post! See y’all back here on Friday!
