Kate doing a post on workout clothes… wait, what?

I know I know y’all… admittedly, this is so not my thing. But you know what, I should actually clarify. Taking 10 mile “jogs” followed by a “filling” bowl of leaves and a “soothing” dunk in an ice bath is not my thing. Cute, cayute workout clothes in my favorite colors and cool designs? Ok, ok, now we’re talking!

This inspiration board came about from a quick search on Nordstrom for new tennies. Before I knew it, though, I had collected a whole wish list of workout wear! The best part? In my sleuthing, I came across some retailers that offer Lululemon-worthy pieces for not Lululemon prices. Take Forever21 and Victoria’s Secret, for example – they really impressed me with their selection! (I linked both to their activewear pages.)

Do you have any workout gear go-t0 brands or retailers you love? I’m all ears!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!


  1. I am really bad at going to the gym or doing any kind of exercise, but cute clothes definitely inspire and motivate me. I love those bright Nike trainers!

    Great picks! Old navy has great workout crops and shorts that are a steal! Gap has a long sleeve motion top that is very similar to lululemon’s swiftly tech long sleeve crew (and they come out with different colors every season!). I snagged a pink neon one last year and it’s my favorite! Also Aerie has great sports bras that are very reasonable!

  6. I have those pink pants and they are the softest! I find myself wearing them more to lounge/sleep in then to work out ;)
