Black Panther // Workout Wear

 Jacket: Lululemon     Pants: Lululemon     Shoes: Adidas x Stella McCartney (similar)   Bag: Matt & Nat    Sunglasses: Stella McCartney

Fun fact: this outfit was shot right after I ran 4 miles.  Somehow the photos didn't pick up my flushed, bright red cheeks: my camera is kind of weird and often makes my skintone come out super pale and devoid of color.  I've been training for a 5k in November, which I'm actually really excited for! I try and work out in the early morning because SoCal temps have been hot and humid lately, so that means I'm out running at 6-7 AM, when it's fairly cold out.  Wearing black helps attract warmth, so I've been going for all-black workout wear lately.  

This Lululemon 'Hustle in Your Bustle' jacket is a staple in my activewear drawer- it's light and breathable, yet it can keep me warm as I run.  I've been loving the look of it zipped up to the neck- it makes me feel like a total BAMF force to be reckoned with.  I'm wearing my trusty black leggings with it, and underneath the jacket I'm wearing my Ivy Park sports bra, good for low impact support for anyone small busted/petite.  

I also have been loving my running shoes from Stella McCartney's Adidas line.  I already like her designs so it's no surprise that her activewear line includes sleek, high quality pieces with amazing details.  These might look like plain black trainers, but they include mesh inserts for contrast and breathability.  And of course, they're vegan-friendly, like almost all of Stella's designs.  

What are your favorite things to wear while you get active?

  1. Love your workout wear! I run every day, and those shoes are beautiful and sounds like their quality is also amazing, so maybe I'll get myself a pair :) Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful day!

    1. Thank you Esther! I definitely recommend Stella's entire line, but the shoes are just amazing and beat the quality of any other pair I've owned.

  2. When I get active, my favorites are a pair of athletic capris or pants, with a tank top. I can never wear shorts. They're either riding up my thigh or rubbing my thighs, I hate that, but I heard pants are better anyways because they trap heat and keep your muscles warm, preventing potential injuries. I wish I could run 4 miles and look fabulous like you. If I go running 4 miles, oh you'll know...lol

    1. Wow, that's so cool and I didn't know that. It definitely depends on the weather- I like looser shorts but if they are super tight like bike shorts I just feel like their riding up into uncomfortable places.

    1. Yeah... NO. This blog is not a political platform in any way, and I have never declared my political stances on here, other than the fact that I stand for unequivocal equality. I do, however, have common sense, and I can form decisions for myself.

      Kindly leave your comments off my blog.
