MINI FITNESS CLOTHING HAUL

primark shorts
asos cami tops

Today marks the first day of Fitness Month here on All Things Elsie! I decided Fitness Month would be a good idea because, around this time of year, people have usually long forgotten their new years resolutions and are back to old habits. So this month, I'm going to be posting twice a week to give you a bit of healthy inspiration, health-spiration, whether that's to do with exercise or healthy eating, and hopefully it will give you a little kick up the behind to get healthy again. (Little disclaimer: this isn't going to be some bootcamp-style series, it's more like a bit of advice on how to live a normal healthy life when you don't have a lot of time on your hands).

To kick off this series, I thought we'd start with a good old haul. For some people, pictures of slim, toned women inspire them to workout; for me, it's the clothes. I've probably spent more hours searching for sports bras than I have actually working out. That being said, now that I have all my gear, it really encourages me to get on with it since I've spent my money on the clothes. So today, I thought I'd do a mini haul of some things that I've bought. 

First of all, I came across Even&Odd Active on Zalando and all of their stuff is amazing - I absolutely love the sports bra that I got. To go with the sports bra, I also got some 3/4 length leggings and they are really comfortable and fit well. And the best part is that it's all really affordable! From Primark, I got some plain black running shorts. I have a few of these, but they're really comfortable and are only a few pounds. To wear as an extra layer, I bought some vests from asos. These come in a two pack and, because they are really strappy, you can really see your arms when you're doing a target workout. 

Let me know if you liked anything in this haul, or if you have any recommendations of good shops/brands, in the comments section belowAlso, who's excited for Fitness Month? Don't forget to use the hashtag #allthingsfitness to keep me in the loop.

  1. I love the Even&Odd pieces. I really need some new fitness wear. I've had mine for a while, but buying new workout clothes gives you so much more motivation!

  3. Hey, I really like this gym clothing haul. I also liked beautiful compression leggings for my yoga workouts. Moreover, I can wear these around house as casual wear. I adore leggings just because of all these benefits they provide. Anyway, thanks for sharing your photos here.
