Running Style

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

I've had a long time love affair with running. I adore it. Actually, I'm lazy so I dread going until I go and then I'm fine. Mark thinks I'm crazy. I think he's crazy.

Anyway, I've been so frustrated lately looking for some quality running shirts that I actually like style-wise. I know that this is the stupidest problem on the earth to have, but its annoying. I basically want to duplicate my current "running style" with actual running shirts (since right now I'm using huge Old Navy V-neck tees). I mean, I have some normal ones but I prefer this look and since I'm actually vain like that I'd rather sweat a little more than wear a high tech running shirt I guess. Maybe I should start my own line.

So, do you have any recommendations?

(Old Navy V-neck Tees, H&M leggings, Nike sports bra, Aasics (always Aasics)

Dude, I wish two things
1 - I could run. Just a little bit. I could sprint, but run, not so much
2 - I had style

Good luck!

Ashley said...

Those are some 80s shoes right thurrrrrr.

My friend said it best when he pointed out that the Londoners love black, black, black all the time. Except when they are exercising, then they love neon!! haha.

I really like those shoes! I'm the same way pretty lazy. I think my laziness comes in the form of well by day 5 of running I'll have to do laundry and who has time for that?

Hahah "Mark thinks I'm crazy. I think he's crazy."

I would go check Gap! They have a bunch of workout gear, and they fit that relaxed, minimalist style. And I'm loving those running shoes, so colorful

I wish I wanted to run. I'll take walking any day though. Sorry I can't help you, like at all...

I love this look. I agree, high tech running stuff is ugggly. Lulu lemon zip ups are my favorite and I love Old navy compression leggings.
Sigh... I need to go outside now... and at least walk.

Target has some really great lightweight v-necks!

Very nice outfit! I'm so lazy to get properly dressed for running, so I only run at home on the treadmill where no one sees me...

I'm all about dry fit! I love Lululemon tops, they really are amazing, and I sometimes find great tops at Target ;)

Stephanie said...

ughhhh you're so right about not wanting to go, finally going, and then feeling amazing.

I hate running but love the neon colored outfits people wear when running!

Catita said...

great outfit!!! and so trendy too, I put on anything when I go running but I do love that grey and yellow shirt/bra duo! Mark is funny, I am just like you, today I went on a forced run...but then was happy. As for shoes, try the Mizuno! amazing! and for slouchy shirt, COS has the best!

Diana said...

Stylish running gear, yo. I love adidas pants for some reason, they have this climalite or climacool material they call it and it's really comfy and flattering.

Of course in Vancouver it's all about lululemon all over the place, but I've resisted pretty well so far.

I do I do! Try any of the Dri-Fit shirts from Nike (particularly their 6.0 collection that's designed for skaters). Let me know if you need specific recommendations. My sis works for Nike so I've tried pretty much all of their shirts

Oh, I need to step up my running style. I mean I need go running... I think it'd help if I had cute little running gear. I've seen some nice things at the GAP... I don't think I'd be much help to you, but I do love your picks here :)

don't spend too much, you can look fine it affordable basics. i have some stuff from champion which i got in target, then i wear some new balance. i don't run much at all but that's what i wear to the gym

That's a way cuter outfit than I wear working out. Love those colorful sneakers!

Do you guys have Lorna Jane over there? It's an Australian company, but I know it's branching out around the world. I'm pretty sure they have an online shop, even if they don't have a physical store near you. You should check them out, they're great!

I'm very picky when it comes to gym outfits. More often than not I end up looking quite daggy because I like my shirts to be longer than most other people do (gotta cover that junk in my trunk), and nice longer shirts don't seem to exist. They're always super baggy which never looks good, unless you are stick thin, which I am not.

I love your picks here. Super cute and functional!
