Confession: While I generally only post photos of my style for all to see when my hair is done, I’m wearing loads of sunless tanner and fake lashes, I spend most of my week in workout clothes, pale and sans lashes (gasp). And I blame this on the gym, because this certainly could be no fault of my own want to sleep in just a bit later…
While I initially joined a gym and started working out for the inexpensive day care for my son (mom of the year!), over the past year I’ve gotten into the habit of working out and have stuck with it. And along with that, for a style enthusiast like me, came the need for workout clothes. Cute workout clothes that I end up wearing on days when I’m don’t even set foot on the elliptical.
While at first I had a standard, go-to brand, I started to get bored with their designs and began looking for some new pieces to wear that were stylish, yet functional. It wasn’t an easy task, but when my friend Erin from my favorite gym Southport Fitness (highly recommend it if you are in Chicago, they also own Wicker Park Fitness) recommended Ellie, I fell in love with their feminine, yet athletic and functional designs. And you’ll love them too!
Check out my favorite pieces below, that range from a fun layering tank to a fun take on your standard cropped workout pants. If you like what you see check out Ellie.com for their full assortment of great designs and use code fitbbh20 for 20% off your first order!
The Ellie Under The Sea Capri pant is a great take on your typical, basic workout pant. The fabric is lightweight, yet very sturdy and is good for giving your butt a lift without being uncomfortable.
The Ellie Perfect Catch tank is super cute to layer up with a workout tank on the way to the gym, or ever to wear with shorts and a layering tank when you are just hanging out.
I am big fan of color-blocking, and the Ellie Sail Away Tank is an awesome way to wear the trend at the gym without looking too overdone. Pair it with the Under The Sea Capri for a head to toe matching look or with the Ellie Little Black Capri to make the top the focus.
The Ellie Little Black Capri is a great basic workout staple. It doesn’t stretch out, is lighter weight and more breathable than some of it’s competitors in the category (without being sheer) and gives you a cute gym booty! What else could you ask for!?
The Ellie Peak-A-Boo tank was my very first Ellie purchase and I absolutely love it! It’s a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit with a cute sports bra and get some extra air flow on your back for hot workouts. It’s a unique take on a workout top that is a must have!
