The last time I wore a a matching tracksuit was probably in the late 90’s during indoor field hockey practice. I was a big fan of those Adidas pants, that made a swishing sound as you walked, and matching jackets (insert laughing emoji here). Gone are the days for old school warmups…check out this sporty pair available at Rode’o Boutique!
Along with water, shelter, and food, exercise is another essential item in my life. I typically spend an hour per day at “the bar” getting my daily dose of exercise induced endorphins. With the spring season, however, comes 5K and 10K road races and my hubby has us lined up for one at the end of the month. I’ll be swapping out the barre clothes for jogging clothes at least twice a week, beginning with this MinkPink tracksuit.
I was immediately attracted to the print as it reminded me of a gorgeous Free People dress. The top is great because it provides enough support for a jog minus the suffocating effect. I am very picky when it comes to sports bras and normally only feel comfortable in the Free To Be bra. The length is slightly longer than a standard sports bra, providing a little bit more coverage (score!). On a brisk day, I plan to wear a mesh shirt, like this, over the bra top for added warmth.
The pants are my favorite 3/4 length leggings, hitting just below the knee. Rock these moisture wicking pants on the running trail, spin class, or at bootcamp. When you’re in between home and the studio, conveniently store your goods in the zip back pocket. I styled this ensemble with black Nike sneakers and an iridescent S’well water bottle (last mentioned here). If you have yet to purchase a pair of trendy sneaks, it is not too late to ride the “athleisure” style bandwagon.
If you have any trendy activewear recommendations, I would love to hear them! A special thanks to Rode’o Boutique for sponsoring this post and to Ava Trimble for capturing the moment.
