So far my fall capsule wardrobe is working out incredibly well! It has saved me so much time getting dressed in the mornings, doing laundry and shopping. I am also learning what fits and styles I feel most comfortable in and work the best for my lifestyle.
I excluded workout clothes from my limited wardrobe because I just don’t give them much thought at all. I throw on old leggings or nike shorts and big tshirts, and I am out the door.
The thing about that is that I am spending more and more time in those clothes since becoming a stay at home mom. Yeah, I said I would never be one of those women who wears sweats just because she doesn’t go into the office, and I absolutely still get dressed if I go out, even to the grocery store.
When I am home though, I am usually sitting on the floor playing with blocks, building tents or playing outside with bugs and mud. It just doesn’t make sense for me to be doing those things in jeans and button ups.
My nike shorts have been my best friend all summer, but the temperature is dropping and I don’t have “outfits” with my leggings. It is time to invest in some cute but comfortable clothes that I can wear to the gym and around the house.
I am on a tight budget, so as amazing as the clothes at LuLu Lemon and Athleta are, they aren’t making it into my shopping cart right now. (Maybe for Christmas? Hi, Mom!) These five favorite pieces of workout wear are all from Old Navy and Forever 21.
Do you wear workout clothes when you aren’t really working out? Are there any other brands with cute and inexpensive activewear?
