Fitness Friday: Activewear Style on a Budget

Linnea White

We've talked about studio to street style before, and for this Fitness Friday, I'm back at it with a little activewear style. From paying for the gym membership or class packs to buying all the gear (cuz it's all so darn cute these days), we know it ain't easy on the wallet to be all #fitspiration. Here's a little fit life style inspo for the lover of budget friendly consignment finds!

I like to call these pants my Thunder Thigh pants, because they legit look like lightening bolts across my thigh. And how perfectly they pair with my Lightening Fast windbreaker jacket. I ran so fast the wind turned my hair white. True story.

In other news, we have a ton of activewear coming into the shop these days, and it sure makes looking cute for all those gym dates no sweat. And what do you need to put all of your cute gym clothes in? A bag, of course! And this lululemon gym bag is a stunna'. It even has a little removable bag to put all your stinky clothes in when you're done glistening in yoga class.

What's your secret to hitting the streets in style before/after your workout?

 See you on the streets, or in the studio, soon, darlings!

Fitness Friday: From Studio to Street

Linnea White

It's Fitness Friday, darlings! Just because you're heading to the gym (or from the gym) doesn't mean you can't look put together and stylish. Toss on a colorful jacket, like this lululemon tie-waist one, a crop top, striped sweater, or bold sports bra to make your trek. And even though you certainly can't do much but walk around in this sexy lululemon skirt, it still makes a great point A to point B piece for that sporty chic look. Activewear is a great solution for those weekend errands and hangs, from the farmer's market to brunch to a kiddie (or doggie) playdate, for the busy gal on the go. Don't let your sweat post-workout self stop you from a productive, stylish day. Did you know Darling carries workout apparel on consignment? Well, we do! And lululemon is a big seller. When this lululemon skirt came in, I knew we needed to get the first ever activewear outfit on the blog for Fitness Friday.
