Working Out In Style

Working Out In Style

Who else had “working out more” on the top of your resolution list this year?


There’s just something about the beginning of the year and right before summer that makes all ladies have a sudden urge to get it in at the gym. But somewhere in between the lunges and squats, I often find myself opting for a night filled with binge watching rather than running on a treadmill.

Motivation for the gym happens for various people in different ways. Personally, I find that when I get a new pair of fresh kicks or leggings, I’m practically begging to go to the gym.

Khloe Kardashian said it best in her latest interview with Shape Magazine.

“When I buy a cute outfit, I’m super excited to go to the gym the next day. And when I look good at the gym, I’m inspired to do an extra squat or an extra lunge. Just because you’re going to work out, you don’t have to look like a slob. I also always wear hoop earrings; they’re like my security blanket. People laugh at me, but why not? They make me feel more dressed up. I also wear makeup when I work out. I put on a tinted moisturizer, mascara, and cherry lip balm, and fill in my eyebrows. If I feel cuter with a little lip color and mascara, why should anybody else care?”

I, for one, couldn’t agree with her more! I love looking cute for the gym, especially because it gives me a good reason to go shopping. Call me shallow, but I’ll be one heck of a shallow fitness queen.

I rounded up some of my favorite sets from Forever 21 that are fun, sporty, affordable, and still make you look good while being drenched in sweat!
