Rachael's Radar: Activewear

Working out is a large part of my life, and something that I haven't shared much about on the blog.  Ever since I quit the gym, and found at home workouts that I love, moving my body has become an everyday essential.  I'm a huge fan of Beach Body work outs and Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide (currently on my third round), and am usually mixing the two together.  The fact that I can just throw on leggings and press play while the twins are napping, gives me no excuse to miss a workout.  However, since I don't leave the house to get my sweat on, I don't usually care what I'm wearing, so my workout clothing game is pretty sad.  Sure I have some nice stuff from my Pure Barre days, but with that being over two years ago, they're pretty much all worn.  This wasn't a concern of mine until recently, when I had to start being out of house early in the mornings to take the twins to music class and daycare.  I usually dress in my activewear so that I'm motivated to get moving when I get back home.  Let's just say my outfits have been pretty embarrassing, which is why my current wish list is all about activewear.

I'm in desperate need of some new leggings, and love that there are so many higher rise options. These Zella leggings would be perfect for running around town, and love that they come in a a few colors, including black.  Also, how fun are these moto leggings and these mesh inset ones?  Since I am always cold, I love throwing on cute sweatshirts, and would live in this cardigan.  I'm also obsessing over the cut out detailing on this Free People hoodie.  When I leave the house in leggings, I always like to have my bum covered, so this long tank is perfect.  It's also time for me to get a new water bottle and this gold S'well one make the perfect accessory.

I'd love to hear, what are some of your favorite workout brands?
