My friend, Jennifer, has an amazing knack for picking out really great workout clothes. It’s like she knows exactly what we want from workout clothes (comfortable sports bras with a cool back, open back tanks, leggings that won’t make you have a heat stroke, and coverups for when I need to run errands), and then she stocks her studio (Define Tanglewood) with it all.
About a month ago, she texted me to see if I would like to be a fitness model for her new merchandise. I said something like, “I’m not a fitness wear model, but I’ll do anything for you” (you may remember when she graciously let me challenge her here). Plus, I like to scare myself a little bit in life. It makes me feel like I’m living!
She brought a box of all her new merchandise over and I, of course, wanted it all. I think she had in mind that I would model one outfit, but I fell in love with too many items to stop at just one outfit! Plus, I need all the motivation I can get to workout during these hot summer days, and cute clothes really do motivate me (I’m just being honest).
I asked her if I could share all of her great workout wear on the blog and she agreed! Plus, we decided to do a GIVEAWAY (see details at end of post)! If you live in Houston, you can find everything in this post at Define Tanglewood!
She carries items like these camo leggings by my favorite leggings brand, Onzie (remember this post?)! I also went out on a limb with this conservative crop top. It’s just the right amount of skin for me. It’s not too much, but it’s just enough to scare me -ha!
I asked Jennifer what I should do if my crop top shows too much of my stomach while working out, and her response was hilarious. In a very matter of fact, no b.s., way she said, “I close my eyes.” I laughed so hard. Isn’t that just how it is in life? When you push yourself beyond your comfort zone, sometimes all you need to do to get through it is close your eyes for a bit.
Then she had one of my all time favorite workout tops in white! I have this top in black and wear it most out of all my workout tops! I like the high neck with an open back. Usually, I sloppy tuck it into my leggings.
I don’t even know where to start with this outfit! I love the cool bra, the navy tank that shows the cool bra, the peacock Onzie leggings, and this black cover up is so stinkin cool because it’s sheer! I’m trying to figure out a way to wear it beyond workout wear. If you have any ideas, let me know.
I’m not going to lie, trying to look cute while doing workout moves is not easy. First of all, it’s hard to hold a position while looking like it’s not killing you (my hair down is working for me in this picture). Although these darling leggings are helping. Secondly, my form was off and did not look pretty…
See? She had to correct my form a lot -ha! And this is precisely why you see me sitting, stretching, or posing in most of these pics -ha!
For all of these clothes, head straight to Define Tanglewood in Houston! If you’re not from Houston, I’ve linked what I could!
