Work It Out: Fit Style To Street Style

I'm really excited about today's post because it's different than what I normally do and it's also been great motivation for me.  I have to confess that I haven't worked out in awhile.  I got a little lazy during these winter months and I really need to get back on track.   As we get older our bodies start to change so much and it's really important to take care of them now while we can.  I officially started again this weekend and I am really happy about it!  Whenever I am working out, I always feel great, both in body and in mind.  I teamed up with Athleta for a fit style meets street style challenge.

Fit Style
  









Hoodie (similar) / Chi Tank (here) / Sports Bra (here) / Tights (similar) c/o Athleta 
Sneakers: (old) Nike Free XT(similar)/ Headphones: Beats By Dre (here)/ Sunglasses: Ray-Ban (here)


Saturday was so beautiful, so I headed out to my favorite park where I typically run during the spring and summer.  This park is very special to me because when I first lost my father, it was the only place I could actually escape to.  I used to come here all the time to run and just sit on the benches and clear my mind.  Coming here really helped put things into perspective for me.  It's where I wrote a song inspired by and dedicated to my father called Slip Into The Darkness and it's the place that somehow made me realize I had to stop feeling sorry for myself and live my life.  I know it may sound weird, but during my darkest time this place brought me back to the light.  It was the therapy that I really needed.  Running is such a great way to feel free from everything going on around us.  

When it comes to fitness, I want to wear comfortable pieces.  And of course it's always a plus when they're stylish too.  I'm pretty obsessed with this zip up hoodie mostly because of the thumb holes!  I layered a long white tank underneath on top of the black sports bra.  Everything is so light weight and easy to move around in.  It felt great to put these sneakers back on.  I have a few pairs of Nikes but these are definitely my favorite ones.  And of course I can't go running without my headphones and some water!  My sister is currently training for her 5th fitness competition and I am beyond motivated by her once again.  I am in the process of begging her to train me so I can reach my goals by spring/summer.  She might be making an appearance on my blog soon :) 

Street Style







Hoodie (similar) / Chi Tank (here) c/o Athleta 
Jeans: Dittos (here) / Booties: Forever21 (also love ) /  Cap: N/A (similar)
Bag: H&M (similar) / Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe (similar)


For this challenge, I had to take some of the pieces that I would use to workout and show how you can easily transition them into street style.  This hoodie is perfect because it really can be used during the day to do pretty much anything.  I wore it to run some errands and do a little bit of shopping over the weekend.  I layered a black workout tank underneath which by the way, has an unstinkable technology so that you can wear it more and wash it less.  I changed into dark denim and my go-to boots, let my hair down and added a baseball cap for a fun casual look.  And I brought my big black tote out to play again!

I hope that you enjoyed today's post!  Let me know if you would like to see any more fitness posts in the near future.  Have a great day loves.
