Gym Look Book – The Black and Pinks

I am a sucker when it comes to cute gym clothes! I just can’t get enough of them! I am always adding new bits and pieces to my collection so I thought that I would finally share that collection with you today! This is the first look book that I have photographed by myself, on myself so please bare with me as the image quality isn’t amazing as I am still experimenting on how to get the best shot!

I find that wearing the right gym clothes can really help to motivate me in the gym. I love putting on the clothes and to be able to do that I have to be going to the gym so it can help make me go more often! Also by having cute outfits I am more confident wearing them out and about when I am planning on going to the gym after whatever I am up to that day, so it becomes a win win situation.

Look 1.

I love the simplicity yet stylish look of this outfit. The leggings have a great fit, giving me both comfort and shape while I work out. I also adore the pattern on them, fun yet not too over the top! The top I have paired with them is a pale pink t-shirt that I tie at the front to give more shape and effect. The sports bra ia my go to sports bra. Although it isn’t underwired like some, it has a decent amount of padding and good coverage, making it the perfect support for me.

(Top and leggings are from New Look, sports bra New balance, Nike trainers and then my wireless Beat headphones)

Look 2 .

This new look is an all Primark outfit! Showing you that you don’t have to pay a lot for cute gym clothes! The sports bra and leggings are a matching set and with the detail only at the bottom of the leggings, it means that the two pieces are easy to wear together. I don’t find the sports bra to have the best fit for me, so I tend to only wear it when I know I wont be doing any intense cardio. On top of the set I have thrown on this cropped hoodie and a matching cap!

Look 3.

My final look features my favourite pair of leggings that I own. These are from Sweaty Betty and are the softest, comfiest pair on leggings I have ever felt. although they are expensive you can easily see the quality that you are paying for! I have had these for around a year and a half now and they are yet to show any signs of wear and tear! Again I have paired them with my grey sports bra and then on top I have put on a lightweight charcoal jacket!

Spring Clothing Haul

The start of spring means having tha chance to do a bit of shopping for some new wardrobe pieces and during a trip to Birmingham this is exactly what I did!

The first stop was Primark where I picked up a few cute tops! The first was this off the shoulder, blue and white pinstripe top! (Top variation as link) I thought that this would be a great summary top to throw on with a pair of jeans or shorts, great for a casual trip into town and for me great for going to work. Next I found two t-shirts with 3/4 length sleeves that have a frill section at the end of them. As such cute tops I decided to get two! one in a mauve pink and the other navy.

Next stop was New Look where I grabbed myself a pair of the comfiest trackies for only £9.99! These light grey joggers were just what I had been looking for on those lazy days where I was to be comfy without staying in my pjs all day! They came in other colours to and I am of course tempted to go back and get another pair!

I then found myself in Forever 21 a shop that I have a bit of a love hate relationship with. Sometimes I will find the best bargains in there and other times I hate everything! There were quite a few bits that I liked in the Birmingham store but sadly they didn’t have my size in a lot of the items. But one that they did have my size in was this gorgeous pink shirt. I love shirts and find them such an easy go to option which you can dress up or down. I think this one will look great with black jeans and black boots for a casual yet smart evening look.

Finally I went to my current favourite shop… Zara where I picked up two great items. The first was a black leather skirt with panel detail. I have needed a classy black skirt for a while now. I have always worn the cheap jersey ones that slowly ride up as you walk and drive me crazy! So I decided that I was finally time to invest in a proper skirt and went with this one from zara. The second item was a pale pink top. In a way similar to the primark ones but instead of a t-shirt material, a shirt material giving it looser and more dressy fit.

A few days before going to Birmingham I had also brought a pair of jeans from Bershka so thought I’d add them onto the haul for you to see. They are a pair of slim fit jeans, in dark navy, that sit on your hips. Although just a standard pair of jeans, I can struggle to find a pair that fit me. These are a great fit tho, sitting tightly against my body and giving me the perfect shape!

This is the first haul post that I have done on my blog and although loving it, I did struggle to take pictures of the items! So I have tried to link you to clothes as best as possible! Also let me know if you would like to see a spring look book as this may be something easier to photograph!
