Workout Gear Spotlight: Ellie

This girl loves her gym time. And walks. And yoga. And Pilates. And… You get the picture!

And while my workout routines and my favorite exercises may change, one thing has always remained constant – I love cute workout gear.

Gym clothes are a great reward for meeting a goal {read: non-food}, not to mention I’ve found that new gear can actually inspire me to get to the gym!

Personally, when I’m feeling blah or on the cusp of not going, getting a chance to throw on something new or really cute will tip me over the edge and get me to the gym.

Shallow? Maybe. Effective? Hell yeah!

At the end of 2013 I did a Fitness Friday series featuring some fabulous pieces from Lorna Jane that I’ve completely worn to death.

At the Stylematic Runway Show earlier this year I was introduced to California-based fitness gear company Ellie and jumped at the chance to try out some of their fun pieces. They sent over these ruffled leggings and a white yoga tank and I couldn’t have been more thrilled with them both.

These leggings are everything that I look for in a pair of gym pants – They’re cute & flattering and they stay in place during a workout. I’ve already worn them for a weights session, hike, yoga, and Pilates – And they were a dream in all these settings.

I’ve noticed these cute cut-out tanks at the yoga studio that I’ve been frequenting since January but hadn’t gotten a chance to go out and find one that I liked yet. Ellie to the rescue! I was worried that it might gap in weird places or show off my belly during bending movements but it actually has great coverage.

And bonus? It has a super comfortable and secure built-in sports bra. I’m picky about my sports bras so that’s really saying something for me.
