Updating my Spring Workout Clothes with Nordstrom
Welcome back to 27 Days of Spring Fashion! Today’s spring outfit is a little bit different. This is a spring workout outfit!
Nevermind that it’s actually snowing outside as I sit here putting the finishing touches on this post! It’s supposed to be 70 next week, so I’m confident that spring IS coming.
This is one of two posts I’m writing in partnership with Nordstrom featuring their yoga gear and apparel. You know I’m a huge fan of Nordstrom, and I’ve been wanting to update my workout clothes for a while, so this opportunity came along at just the right time.
I absolutely believe that wearing workout gear that is cute and stylish is extra motivation to get out there and move. Whether you work out in the privacy of your own home, at the gym, or on deserted country roads, you will be more motivated to exercise if you feel good in what you’re wearing.
I spent some time perusing the website, and Nordstrom has an amazing selection of activewear. I had a hard time choosing the pieces I wanted to order. In the end, I just ordered an assortment of things, knowing that anything that doesn’t work out can easily be returned, thanks to their generous return policy.
This outfit is something I’d wear to the gym or to yoga.
I could wear it to run too, I suppose, but this sweatshirt is more of a topper to go to and from my workout destination than something I’d actually work out in.
Speaking of this Fleece Front Zip Hoodie, I am obsessed with it. It’s definitely my favorite piece that I ordered. It is soooo soft, I want to wear it 24/7.
In fact, I have practically done just that ever since it arrived a few days ago. I wore it to my gym workout on Wednesday, and then I came home and showered and put it back on with jeans and a t-shirt and wore it for the rest of the day. I wore it again yesterday over a grey tank with olive skinnies and my Converse.
When I take it off, I just hold it and pet it. LOL!!! It’s seriously that soft.
It’s also super lightweight, so it’s perfect for this time of year when the weather is so unpredictable. The sleeves are a ribbed cotton material, and the body is the lightest fleece I’ve ever felt.
The thumbholes are stylish as well as practical. I’m always cold, so I definitely keep the sleeves hooked over my thumbs as I work at the computer or when driving to and from my workout appointments.
This is my first experience with the Alo brand, and I’ll definitely be buying more.
Underneath, I’m wearing the Zella Double Scoop Tank. This is a great basic to work out in. I wish they had it in more colors because I’d order one in every color of the rainbow!!
The moisture-wicking fabric is comfortable even when I’m working up a sweat, and the straps are wide enough to cover my bra, which is SO hard to find in a workout tank top! So many are super strappy, but this has great coverage without being frumpy.
Finally, the Alo Capris are so cute. These pants have a comfy wide waistband and no side seams for a smooth fit through the legs.
They do have a slightly lower rise than the Zella Live In Capris (that I also ordered and will feature in my next post), so keep that in mind if that’s an issue for you, but the print and the fabric were too cute to pass up. Alo makes their pants in a ton of great prints.
I’ve already worn this outfit to a training session, and I know it will be on repeat all summer long.
