Hot Pants

EleVen For Venus Workout Pants

 EleVen TieDye Leggings $24 / EleVen Pink Tank $25

When it comes to my workout attire {see other outfits here}, I like to dress as trendy as I do in my day-to-day fashionable life. So much like printed denim hit it big, printed workout leggings are now the hot commodity. How amazing are both of the ones I am wearing by EleVen for Venus Williams? And aside from being incredibly cute, they are “legit” movable/ comfortable activewear {which is not surprising considering the famous tennis star has spent enough time in the gym to have given them a thorough test run.} What I love most about printed leggings is that for days when I spend the entire day wandering the city in my workout gear {come on, I have a 7 month old and spend a lot of time carrying her around in an Ergo – cut me some slack!}, I still look like a hip lassie! For those of you who work Monday – Friday and on Saturdays don’t feel like getting “dressed,” you can still look cute running errands by reaching for these rather than your usual boring black leggings {or worse, sweatpants!} – It can be our little secret whether you plan to hit the gym or not! Not sure you can pull off this trend? They are surprisingly do-able for all shapes and sizes. Wider hips and fuller legs look great by pairing them with a longer tank to cover the tush! Meanwhile gals with bigger bellies, but slimmer legs can pair them with a shorter looser top to attract more attention to their best asset! Checkout out more pieces from their new collection here.

On weekend mornings I find that I am never in the mood to get “dressed”. Getting dressed involves blowdrying the front of my hair, putting on makeup, and wearing a pair of cute boots… WAY TOO much work!! I usually designate my weekend days for running a million errands (aka being on my feet) so I need straight up comfort. Not to mention, we spend 5 days a week looking “put-together” for work so don’t we deserve a break?? So, whether I plan to attend a gym class or not, I absolutely love throwing on cute workout clothes for a truly productive day off.  This is accompanied by un-blowdried hair thrown in a ponytail, a quick application of mascara and creme blush, and best of all, sneakers! If after my errands I still have energy for the gym, god bless!

While this may sound very un-FH of me… I am not saying that I throw my style out the window! Gym attire doesn’t have to equate to oversized t-shirts you got from attending a charity event and frumpy sweatpants… it can, and in my case, DOES equate to cute skinny pant workout leggings, a trendy workout tank, a fitted hoodie or zip-up, cool pop-color sneakers, and an oversized Lululemon gym bag.

How to achieve this look? Two brands you can’t go wrong with are for trendy workout clothes are Lululemon and Anatomie. In my pics, I am wearing a combo of the two… my leggings (super soft and could double for everyday work-wear attire with a tunic) and mesh jacket (so lightweight) are Anatomie. My ‘No-Limits’ tank top (with a built-in bra- bonus!) and over-sized gym bag are Lululemon. I especially love how the Lululemon bag also has an optional long strap for some cross-body action when all of my shopping makes it a tad too heavy for my weakling arms. I topped off the look off with Nike sneakers (although I am less concerned with the brand- how cute are they with their neon pink accent)?!

So bottom line, I am ready to run into people whether it’s at the gym or in a swanky store in SOHO… and (*bonus) if your shopping gets you a tad overheated/sweaty, go with it …. you can always say “you just came from the 10 am Soul Cycle class!” (Our little secret!)
