Pink, Purple and Teal Gym Outfit | LINK UP

Reebok leggings, Sweaty Betty Top and Bag | Pink and Purple Gym Outfit

When I first joined my local gym I told myself I wouldn't be buying any 'fancy' gym gear.
Not EVER.

My friend rolled her eyes but I was determined that I would just wear the one pair of joggers I own, or a plain pair of leggings (depending on the activity).
There would be no need to spend money on daft gym clothes.
I would hardly be wearing them anyway....right?

Hmmm...

As it turns out I find myself changing into gym wear almost every day and I want these clothes to be as fun (and colourful) as the other items in my life.

Needless to say, my initial idea was blown out of the water.

I now have gym 'outfits' hung up and ready to go.

My poor joggers are lying in the bottom of a drawer and my good friend has that "I told you so!" expression all over her face!

The options for gym wear are HUGE these days.

Almost every shop has its own sportswear section.
From low end to high end, even down to the local supermarket!
The choice is fantastic.

Whatever your normal style, you'll be able to find the gym wear equivalent.
Clothes that appeal to your personal taste.
Gym clothes are also available in all sizes, so there is no real excuse not to find something that makes you feel great!

For me, gym wear is like any other style choice.
Loads of colour.
Plenty of patterns.
Luxury fabrics.
{I much prefer to wear a cashmere or wool jumper over my gym outfit than a traditional hoody}

You really can express your true self whichever way you choose to sweat!

TOP & BAG: Sweaty Betty (The bag comes in three colours)
LEGGINGS: Reebok (on sale now... yay!)
JUMPER: c/o Silver Pink (so soft and pretty)
TRAINERS: Adidas (A gift from my son, reduced now too!!)

Last week Susan turned my head with her story of style... an evolution.
I must say that the outfit on the left (from 1972) looks perfectly cool and wearable for today!
See her full post HERE it's a good read.

  1. I think as you fall more and more in love with fashion, it's inevitable that gym wear gets included. I felt the same as you did Samantha - now I'm head to toe in union jacks or other graphic designs haha xx

  2. You look fabulous in your gym outfit. I think that looking nice at the gym is just as important as looking nice when going anywhere else.

  3. Samantha, bright gym gear is the best way to get motivated! I was absolutely like you just a few short months ago. I was going to just wear my ratty old joggers and tees with the occasional black leggings thrown in every now and then. Then I got bit by the cute workout wear bug as well! And now I have a gym wardrobe that is bright and fun and cute and makes me smile when I am getting dressed to go do the thing I hate most....exercise! You look adorable in your gear!

  6. You look great! I'm ashamed to say I still opt for workout clothes that make me a little invisible - black, navy, grey. Don't need to be drawing attention to the REAL Sweaty Bettye as I'm huffing and puffing on the treadmill. But I can appreciate the fun looks on others...and if I were at a gym (which I'm considering for the winter) it would be entertaining to view all the outfits on display!

  8. Great look, Sam. Style is always a choice, no matter the occasion so why not express it in everything you do. Thanks for sharing your styling ideas and for hosting.

  13. I love those leggings! I usually wear black workout clothes but I'm tempted to order some funky leggings from Asos in the sale. I have got some Wonder Woman leggings and matching vest but haven't been brave enough to wear them yet!
