Cute + Functional from Workout to Work

What to wear when you workout is always a challenge between looking cute and staying functional. That’s why I helped pick out all the right necessities for your morning run!

blogger-samsung-watch-central-park-nyc-athleteJacket: SNOWMAN New York *use promo code “ANDREA20” for a 20% off* / Leggings: Lou & Grey (similar) / Sneakers: Nike (similar) / Backpack: Danielle Nicole (similar- literally identical) / Watch: Samsung Gear Fit

As you may or may not know, I LOVE to go running in Central Park with Nala in the morning. Dogs are allowed off leash before 9am so I’m able to get in a quick workout (+ walk Nala) all before work! Before I leave, I will usually throw a zip-up hoodie on if it’s cold and on one occasion I actually lost my house keys right out of the pocket! (actually still dealing with this situation, still need to make duplicates.. ugh- anywhoooo)

Athleisure is EVERYWHERE right now (um, IVY PARK anyone?) – so let’s talk about what to wear during and after your workout. This SNOWMAN New York jacket is so perf for running because not only is it lightweight and easy to tie around my waist, but it has ZIPPERED pockets (major key for me – literally)! Plus if it’s too chilly, I can still layer a zip-up hoodie under it. These Lou & Grey leggings are also one of my faves; I just LOVE the zipper. I tagged a similar pair above that are perfect for workout wear (ugh so hard to find!) and there are tons of really cute pairs that can be worn after your workout like this or this – both under $50!

Running is such a great way to start the morning! It helps release a ton of endorphins to help you get pumped to go to work (LOL), plus you feel like you’ve been super productive before even getting to work. Accomplishing one task first thing in the morning helps motivate you to accomplish other tasks as the day goes on. I personally can’t run without music and this Samsung Gear Fit lets me change my music right from my wrist – plus it tracks how far I’ve ran. Definitely a motivator to do my run!

I also linked other super cute styles below for making your morning run just a little bit chicer:

  2. I know Snowman brand! They produce high quality products with unique designs – why not loving it?

    I also enjoy running in Central Park, but only when it’s sunny ;)) Judging on current weather, it’s been a while. I am concentrating on gym classes instead though!
