I have always heard people talk about how “fitness and fashion go hand in hand,”. I totally agree to the phrase. However, to me fitness is more than workouts and protein shakes. Fitness is about feeling good inside and out. Just like fashion is more than just a few glam statements made on a public forum. Fashion is more about feeling comfortable in your own skin. Fitness and fashion go hand in hand if the combination uplifts your spiritual well-being and ensures a positive impact on your life.
When talking about fashion and fitness, I cannot emphasize a proper outfit enough. One of my favorite fitness outlets is Athleta. I have a wide range of yoga tights, tanks and fitness outfits all bought from Athleta because not only do they fit me well, but they also make me feel and look great. Today’s outfit for fitness includes Block avenues tank top, block studio leggings and 2 N 1 Town Parka. Let me just start off by saying how amazing it is to have such an affordable collection by such an amazing designer. The collection is the true embodiment of -‘fashion meets fitness.-’
I love the color block design and the high-low tank . It gives me great coverage at all the right places. The parka is perfect for fall. You know the weather is cooling quickly, and even though we leave the gym sweating it is never a good idea to step into cold weather without any layers. Also, having my parka means I can keep my keys and phone in my pocket and not keep forgetting them at random spots in the gym.
I personally feel that fashion should empower you in your daily life so that every act reflects confidence. The Derek Lam 10C Athleta collection has stood every test a fit fashionista can put it through and has risen to the challenge.
I will be honest, fitness and a good body requires work, but at the same time, the clothing you wear has a big impact on the way you initially feel. I think in order to be physically well, the spiritual side of the human beings is just as important, so what you wear can have a big impact on how you feel.
Hope to see you ladies soon with another peek inside my closet!
