Be Fashionable – Before, During & After the Gym

By on April 15, 2014

Going to the gym can be intimidating, especially if you’re a newbie. Looking around trying to find the machine that looks the least complicated without looking like a total amateur is hard enough, let alone knowing what to wear! And don’t get me wrong, I’m a big believer in sweating your butt off and looking like a hot mess at the gym (and only at the gym), but I also believe you can be fashionable when going to get your sweat on. By fashionable I mean with your workout attire, not throwing on some eye-liner, mascara and a little perfume – what would be the point of that if you’re just going to sweat it all off? So, I’ve decided to help you ladies dress for the gym – and also show you how to incorporate these cute workout pants into your everyday life!

1 Always have a water bottle, don’t forget your sneaks & m usic is always great for motivation

Try a loose tank so your look has some flow to it and do not forget about the wedges!
