During the frigid months of winter(ok… 45 degrees counts as frigid in my book) I develop an allergy to working out. I just can’t, and I just won’t, and I know there are a few of you out there who have to agree with me. Anyone?! I just can’t force myself to move in the cold. So dramatic. But then spring comes, and with it warm weather and green grass and sunshine, and it seems like I can’t be outside enough! So when I’m not in class, working on the blog or interning, chances are you’ll find me at Town Lake jogging (mixed in with a good bit of walking if we’re being honest) to my spring country playlist. Heaven!
And let’s be real… nothing makes a workout better than cute gear! My dear friend Vanessa from Nordstrom at Barton Creek introduced me to Zella, Nordstrom’s own activewear line, and I’m smitten. What I love about the line is that it’s full of creative and stylish pieces (um, hello cut-out leggings!) of really awesome quality. Plus, the collection is sized with a little give. It’s a fun boost of confidence to walk away with a pair of leggings a size smaller than you normally wear as opposed to slouching out of a store with a pair 4x larger than your normal fit. Know what I mean? Check out the full Zella line here and let me know what you think! I’ve been living in my ‘Reflections’ fitted hoodie, and can’t wait to add this cute tennis skirt to my wear-t0-class-then-the-gym spring wardrobe.
Oh and by the way, while I was shooting these photos one of those gorgeous, older-but-way-fitter-than-you moms (you know the ones I’m talking about?!) stopped to compliment me on these leggings and to ask where I got ’em. There is no truer stamp of approval than that of an annoyingly gorgeous work out mom, amirite?! ;)
Love from Texas,
P.S. Did you know that Nordstrom is currently price matching?! Meaning a bunch of spring must-haves like these aqua sunnies and my brand new striped beach sandals are wayyy on sale. Go get ’em while they’re hot! (And by hot I mean still in stock!)
