ALBION | FIT

January 24, 2017

Let’s be real. I feel better when I look good. Call me shallow, but it’s true. This also holds true for when I go to the gym. In some twisted way, stylish workout clothes that fit well and make me look good inspire me to hit the gym more often.

After wearing only one brand of workout attire for nearly five years, I came across a new company that I am so enthusiastic about. Albion Fit not only has a broad range of everything from fitness attire, to swimsuits, to leisure wear, their pieces are designed by women who know and understand a woman’s body (I mean, you can’t go wrong with that one).

When it comes to workout attire, there are a few must-haves for me to wear them.

  • A cute butt is essential
  • It has to suck it all in
  • Prints or design should be minimal yet modern
  • Quality fabrics to last years of washing
  • Clothes can be worn outside of gym

These Mesh Tech Leggings are my new favs. They are high waisted and have a wide waistband at the top which is excellent for keeping everything tight and pulled in. The most crucial thing is that my backside looks cute in them! The mesh panels on the back of the legs add a little sexiness to the leggings and also helps to flatter the calves. I wore this with the Go Long Crew which is lightweight and perfect for the winter. The length of the tee is long and sits perfectly at the hips (or can be knotted like I did) and the wide neck of this tee can also be worn slightly off the shoulder. I love the versatility of the tee because it can be worn several different ways for different looks. See below for links to full outfit details and 15% off!

Beanie | J. Crew similar styles here and here
Shoes | Nike (old) similar styles here, here, and here
Water Bottle | Aquatix

And for those days when you just don’t feel like working out or dressing up, you would appreciate Albion Fit’s loungewear. I live for athleisure wear because it’s easy, comfy, and can still be pulled off as street chic.

The At Ease Joggers are my go-to pants for just about anything. The drawstring waist makes for easy on and off and the detailed stitching throughout the joggers adds minimal design. Nothing says sporty chic like a bomber jacket. This slate floral bomber jacket the perfect throw on to any workout look or off duty style. Underneath this amazing bomber, I am wearing the Exhale sports bra. For me, the selling feature of this bra is that it is longer than most sports bras (so it doesn’t tug up and you can wear it as a top too without it being overly revealing). The bra is lightly padded but also has a hole for inserts just in case you need to slip in additional padding (no judgement here). The back of the bra features a modern design and is a racerback style. The joggers and the bomber can be worn with so many other pieces outside of workout clothes which makes them even more functional for your closet. Full outfit details are below along with a code for 15% off!

Jacket | Albion Fit
Sports Bra | Albion Fit
Joggers | Albion Fit (size down, I am wearing a XXS)
Sunglasses | Celine similar styles here and here
Shoes | Adidas (sold out in floral stripes) similar styles here and here

What draws me to Albion Fit is that they make quality, earth friendly products that are breathable and can last for years to come. Especially since you are wearing them, stretching them, sweating in them and washing them nonstop, it is nice to know that you won’t have to replace your workout attire for many, many years.

/ Tips to Motivate you to Workout /

  • Create a playlist of songs that pump you up
  • Wake up with the mindset that you will exercise today
  • Workout first thing in the morning to get it done
  • Look at inspiring photos of strong and fit people
  • Eat a healthy breakfast so you start the day off right
  • If all else fails, put on some workout clothes and see where it takes you!

Thank you to Albion Fit for sponsoring this post and keeping me fit and looking fabulous while at the gym and running errands!

I just received the same leggings and can’t wait to workout and shoot in them! You’re right about how workout attire affects your mood. I workout daily but feel extra motivated when I am wearing stylish or great quality workout apparel!

You hardly need to workout babe, but if you do, definitely do it in cute fitness wear like Albion. =) They really set the tone for you to work harder in the gym. Plus even if I don’t hit the gym, I look stylish in these while running errands.

You’re not shallow at all, you’re just saying out loud what most people don’t dare to. Of course looking good matters no matter where you are and I’d like to go as far as to say especially at the gym. It somehow motivates you to work out even harder. I’m glad you got to work with Albion Fit as they apparently make gorgeous clothing you can wear both in and outside the gym. 🙂

If I’m wearing a cute workout outfit I’m that much more motivated to work out and if I look flgoodnib the outfit (cute butt yes please) well then there’s half the battle. I’m loving this brands philosophy and that it is by women. Always love supporting other female entrepreneurs. I’ll def check them out and thanks for the discount code! Yei

Jenelle January 25, 2017 at 3:04 am

I am the same though, I feel more put together and motivated with an activewear outfit that works for me. I love these joggers, those are so cool for after the workout. There is a real culture here of people wearing active wear but never really working out. They just like to look like they do, but instead are meeting people for coffee or doing the school drop off run. So strange.

High waisted anything is my jam! I really need some more high waist leggings to keep everything tucked in. Those gray leggings are perfect in fit and style! I love the athleisure loungewear too. I wish I could see a photo of the back of the sports bra. I like longer ones too bc you can wear them with the high waist leggings without being too revealing. You look great and I hope to look this good after I have a couple of kiddos!!!

You look gorgeous babe! and those leggings ( the first outfit ) do make your butt super cute hehe I’ve browsed Albion Fit website before and was really loving so much stuff. I love the fact that the leggings are high waisted. I swear by anything high waisted lately, but especially for the gym, it’ll hold everything in place! The second outfit is such a cute athleisure look! Always love your tips and thanks for that amazing giveaway!

Athleisure is in! Definitely take advantage of it and wear gym clothes out! If you feel self conscious a great bomber or even a fur coat (if you’re in a colder area) with a a beanie will take gym clothes to instant streetstyle status. =)
