Fresh Workout Gear with Spunkwear

Share It:

How many of you struggle with looking and feeling presentable during your workout?

Black Mesh Tank c/o Spunkwear // Rosie Yoga Capri c/o Spunkwear // Air Max // Ray-Bans


I think I've found us a solution. Spunkwear is a female athletic and loungewear company that sells workout gear in awesome patterns and colors that will get you back to feeling like a gym (or spin, or yoga!) badass in no time --
and don't worry, I've scored us a 15% discount on any purchase with the code BELLE15!

These leggings, no lie, are just as or more comfortable than my trusty Nike pairs. They're lightweight, way too much fun, and have POCKETS. And not just the wimpy key pockets found in the butt area of your current favorite yoga pants - legit pockets that fit my iPad -- excuse me,  I meant iPhone 6 Plus . The tank is awesome too - it's made of two layers of super light mesh, so it's incredibly breathable and stretchy. Definitely my new go-to for the 95+ degree days we have left here in PDX!

I would say that I am sort of a gym rat, especially during the school year, and I've been through my fair share of workout leggings. There are three things that I think are important to note when you're looking for a new pair of functional tights or leggings to be active in:
  1. Can you squat down or do a little high-knee running in place without your pants falling down? If so, yay! If not, put them back. If you're hiking them up in the dressing room, you will be in the weight room as well.
  2. Consider where you do most of your exercising and if you need to be kept warm or cool. If you are an outdoor runner, you may need a heavier fabric in the winter than someone who lifts weights in a sweaty gym. 
  3. Pockets are underrated. I never know where to put my keys or my phone when I walk into the gym or walk the dog and always end up dropping or losing things. Like I said earlier, the pockets on these capris are big enough to hold a 6+... that's saying something.

What's your favorite brand of workout gear? Do you love to match in the gym, or are you more of an oversized T-shirt and norts kind of gal? Comment and let me know!

although this outfit was provided to me for review and styling by Spunkwear, all opinions voiced here are my own.

  7. Pocket-less leggings have become the bane of my existence! I go for long runs and I'm always holding my phone in my sweaty, sweaty hand for 1-2 hours at a time. I have considered wearing a fanny pack. Spunkwear looks like a sweet brand to check out!
