It’s been a long time since you made those resolutions, are you still keeping up? If you are, great job! If not, why not try again? I’m sadly in the second boat, but am ready to give it another shot. Often times I find myself running between activities without a lot of downtime to adjust my outfit between them. Today I’m sharing some of my workout favorites, for a fail safe gym to anywhere outfit. Hopefully now I’ll have less excuses when it comes time to work on my health.


Given that I danced for most of my younger years, my favorite workout activity is any type of barre workout. I love the discipline and effectiveness of it, all while building lean muscle. My favorite to do at home is the Ballet Beautiful workout (conveniently available on Amazon!). I’m also a fan of running, but only when I’m in the right mood. That said, I tend to wear leggings when I workout and rely on only a small amount of basic gear.

London Water Bottle
I’ve had this water bottle for awhile now, and it’s one of my favorites. Aside from being small enough to drag most places, I love the clean taste of my water when I drink it.
2 Pound Dumbbells
The ballet workout that I do has a segment that includes lightweight dumbbells. These are my favorite and quite literally some of the only lightweight ones I could find that weren’t neon-colored, ha!
Slvrbk Mat
This yoga mat has been a favorite ever since I picked it up at the goop market last year. It’s thick and doesn’t coil after being rolled, perfect for the occasional use it gets, eek.

Moving on to my favorite workout clothing… I love to wear stuff for workouts that transitions into day-to-day life easily. This simply means that although I might be sweaty after a workout, I don’t want to run to my next activity while wearing something that looks like a 1980’s aerobic suit. I definitely don’t have that problem with these items, simply pop on a favorite chambray shirt and you’re good to go.

Free To Be Zen Bra
This is a barely-there bra that offers light support, perfect for doing my barre workouts. If I need more support I also have a cross back bra similar to this one that I like to use. And if, heaven forbid, I am working out in public, I love a lightweight sleeveless tank like this one from Outdoor Voices because it lets me breathe and keeps me covered.
Wunder Under Pant
I used to be pretty skeptic of Lululemon’s greatness, that is, until I tried these pants. My favorite wunder unders are made with their nulux fabric, and they are so soft and comfortable that I forget I’m wearing them. The coverage is great and perfect for actually working out (or running around) in. For a more eco-friendly alternative made from recycled water bottles, you could try the girlfriend collective leggings. I have a pair and love them for their own reasons, but they are definitely cut from a thicker fabric.
Secret Socks
I’ve gone through quite a few different brands and styles of no-show socks and I think I’ve finally found a winner with these. Not only do they stay on, they don’t get uncomfortable after longer periods of time, and they are excellent breathers.
Free RN Running Shoe
I don’t really wear shoes when I do my barre workouts, but for running I really enjoy my Nike Free RN Running Shoes. They’re an easy transition to everyday clothing, and when paired with my Lululemon Secret Socks they are near invisible.
