Summer Workout Outfit Essentials

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

It's officially swimsuit season, which means that summer workouts are even more needed ;). Even if getting into your favorite bikini that's a bit too small now isn't a part of your summer plans, working out is definitely a good habit to get into now that school's out and there's a bit more free time. Because let's be honest, working out wasn't a part of my regular routine during the school year because I just didn't have the time to do so. But this past month, I've made going to Pure Barre regularly a part of my routine and I can never say no to cute new workout clothes as motivation to work out (anyone else?)

I decided to put together my most essential clothing items for working out (and for not working out because athleisure am I right?) for y'all!

Sneakers- Seemingly obvious, but having a great pair of sneakers is essential for both working out and casual wear. At Pure Barre, you just wearing sticky socks but I still wear my sneakers a lot while nannying. I'm on my second pair of Nike Frees and love them!

Headband- I have super thick hair so I always need something to keep it out of my face. Lulu headbands are the best and honestly are the only ones that work for me!

Loose Tee- Perfect for pairing with tighter bottoms, this style top is so versatile and can be worn for all sorts of workouts from barre class to running to yoga or just for casual wear.

Cropped Pants- Pants or cropped pants are required for Pure Barre so I've been wearing something like this so much more often lately. Not to mention, they can be worn all year long! Lululemon is definitely pricy but I have a pair of crops from their and love them!

Norts- I live in my norts! Every girl should have a pair!

Tank- I've been a fan of the strappy back look for workout wear lately and this one doesn't disappoint! I wear mine that are similar all the time!

No Crease Hairties- If you're squeezing in a quick workout and just want to spray some dry shampoo afterwards, these are the best. I have a bunch of random ones but these patriotic ones are supper cute!

Skort- I usually wear this for work or to run errands (styled in this post) but it would also be super cute for tennis or golf! I love Lilly's Luxletic line- it adds a bit of print and color to the blah that workout wear can be!

Fitbit- I got my Fitbit earlier this year and LOVE it! I wrote about it in this post and it's essential for tracking your workouts not to mention all of the other fun features!

What are your summer workout outfit essentials? Let me know in the comments!
