I – like many of my readers – have grandiose plans of getting up in the morning and going running or working out. I have talked about it, thought about it, dragged my running shoes out the night before…
Then hit the snooze button. *yawn* I’ll do it tomorrow….
I tend to use excuses. One in particular? I don’t have decent workout wear. The last thing I want to do is throw my ugly old sweats on and an ill-fitting tee, because I know I will end up wearing whatever I put on for the next few hours while I run a quick errand or head to grab coffee with my bestie. So yes, fashion is important to me. Does that make me vain? perhaps, but when I am wearing something I feel good in then it sets the tone for my day. Apparently I am not the only one who feels that way because I recently discovered Ellie!
Ellie molds fashion with function in the workout and yoga wear offered. All pieces are streamlined, high quality,and fit like a dream! I was sent a couple of pieces to try for myself – the It Takes Two Top and Solar Flare Legging.
So I will admit I was a little concerned about the fit. I am, um, endowed in the chest category. It’s a running joke between my friends and I. But aside from that it is difficult to find tops that fit. If they fit up top, the waist doesn’t work and I get the “are you expecting” looks. No joke. I have to be very careful with what I wear. I was happy that the It Take Two Top not only fit, it fit amazingly well. It’s the type of top I can wear not only for working out, but I can pair it with some jeans or shorts.
The Solar Flare Legging. Oh Em Gee. These are officially the pants I want to wear all day, every day. They fit like they were made for me. They don’t bag or stretch out, no matter what kind of activities you are doing. They suck my gut in a little – comfortably. And.. they make my butt look fabulous. Look!!! That’s MY butt!!
Ellie releases new collections each month, so you always have new styles to choose from – or skip a month, it’s up to you! The latest collection is California Dreams – and is pretty darn FAB.
Ellie workout wear makes me almost want to actually work out. For reals.
