Two Affordable Workout Outfits

Now that I’m a Pure Barre instructor, I spend 3-4 days a work in work out gear when I’m teaching or taking class. While I am a tried-and-true lululemon girl, I am always on the hunt for other affordable work out gear, too! Today I’m teaming up with Dick’s Sporting Goods® to share two affordable workout outfits with you! Both looks are perfect for if you’re hitting the gym or heading to barre class. The best part is both can be transitioned easily to head to brunch or run errands afterwards!

Dick’s Sporting Goods carried brands like Nike, Under Armour, Onzie and even Carrie Underwood’s line, Calia! I had heard about her brand, but had never seen it in person until recently. I really liked that a lot of her line consisted of good workout basics. But that’s not to say it didn’t have it’s share of “fun” pieces, too (just scroll down to look two!) So far I have been impressed with the quality of her pieces.

Black & Grey Top c/o | Black Moto Leggings c/o |S’well Bottle | Ray-Ban Aviators | Nike Kaishi Sneakers

Y’all know I love my black and grey pieces in my closet and my workout wardrobe is no different! This black and grey top (on sale!) has a built in bra (insert hallelujah hands emoji!) is super breathable and isn’t too fitted! I personally don’t like super fitted tops when working out, but that’s just my personal preference! I loved the leggings that I picked up from the store. They’re tight fitting, a really great material, and the moto-inspired look has a super cool feel!calia by carrie underwood line 2 calia by carrie underwood line 3 calia by carrie underwood line 4 calia by carrie underwood line 5 calia by carrie underwood line 6

LOOK TWO | BARRE TO BRUNCHcalia by carrie underwood line 7

If you’re looking to add a bit of color to your workout wardrobe, look no further than these fun printed leggings! They come in a ton of different prints and are beyond comfortable. I added the best grey wrap sweater (also comes in blush) over it, perfect for running errands or grabbing brunch with girlfriends after class.  Can we also talk about these amazing grey and mint sneaks?

    As a recent post-grad, I’m currently on a tight budget, (Sadly no Pure Barre membership for me quite yet, but working towards it) However I do prioritize time each day to take care of my body with Blogilates workouts. I absolutely love this program and Cassie Ho is an enthusiastic and true to her self kinda gal! This program allows me to work out from home, outside, even while traveling, by allowing me to follow a simple step-by-step workout calendar, with short instructional videos marked for each day of the week. For my busy schedule, it’s win win! Would love the opportunity to treat myself to a much needed new workout wardrobe to match this fun, upbeat workout routine 🙂

    Love these outfits! The first look is exactly my style for when I go to Pilates (The Pilates Barre in Dallas is amazing!), and I also love that gray wrap! Your fitness posts are definitely some of my favorites, thanks for sharing!

    I’m a huge Pure Barre junkie! I started attending classes over a year and half ago swearing I was only in for the discounted first month. Now over 250 classes later I couldn’t imagine starting my day any other way!

    My favorite workout is spin. I go to a beat-driven class, and it means I tapping back and dancing all over the seat. Nothing better after a long day then getting your groove on and sweating it out!

    My favorite workout in my nightly spin class. It is a beat-driven class, which means we are shaking and grooving the entire time. Nothing better than a dance party on a bike!

    Love both outfits! My favorite workout is the Insanity class at my YMCA. It’s fast paced so it flys by and I don’t sweat like that in any other class.

    Love both these looks! I am a lulu girl myself but recently purchased a pair of Under Armour pants from Dick’s and I really, really like them! I’m loving the printed pants you’re wearing!

    I work a full 40 hour a week job from home so getting out of the house each day is extra necessarily to keep my mind fresh! For me that means going to the gym, yoga, or a barre class! I recently started barre and I’ve been loving it, the smallest movements do wonders for muscles I didn’t even know I had! haha!

    I love workouts that combine strength and cardio, and my gym offers a step class that incorporates toning moves. I like to work up a sweat but still get a good pump going!
