active wear

I thought I'd switch up my usual outfit post today from "regular" clothes to gym clothes! I go to the gym often, whether it is for dance team, zumba, rock climbing, running, etc. Many times I have to change quickly before/after class - or just wear my gym clothes to class - so I thought I'd show an example of what I'd wear on one of those days.
Shirt: Victoria's Secret PINK Leggings: Lulu Lemon Shoes: Asics Water bottle: Nalgene
I love these Lulu Lemon leggings. They are great for moving and sweating, but also can be worn with regular clothes as well! Basic black matches everything, and since the material is somewhat thick, they are warmer than most cotton leggings in the winter.

This top is so comfortable - I have it in two colors! It's great for lounging around or warming up at the gym. It doesn't necessarily look like a "gym t-shirt" so I can "get away with it" in class. After warming up, I can take it off to just wear a tank.

As for the sneaks, I've been Asics fan for years. They are great for running long distances and last a good amount of time. Plus the pink is a nice color, too. :) I always keep a hair tie on my wrist if I'm going to the gym so I can put my hair up, and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.

What do you wear to the gym? What are your favorite brands of active wear?

PS - In the process of creating a shopping guide for active wear - check back for it later this week!
