Now that we have Finn and the weather is getting nicer, we’re spending so much more time outside on walks and at the dog park, aka my daily uniform includes leggings 78% of the time. Not to mention we’re still in quarantine and working from home and ya girl wants to be as comfy as possible. 

When it comes to activewear, I’m *pretty* picky. Finding pieces that work for my curvy shape can be a struggle, especially when it comes to pieces that don’t make my wallet cry. But alas, I’ve found the five places that never let me down when I’m looking for new activewear pieces.


Lululemon will always have a special place in my heart, but let’s face it: it’s expensive. But, the wunder under leggings do not disappoint and the energy sports bra is my new BFF.


You can’t go wrong with anything from Target and their activewear is no exception. The new All In Motion line is amazing and the JoyLab line is such great quality for the price.


Ahhh, good ole Aerie. I’ve been shopping at Aerie for so long and I swear, their pieces keep getting better and better. Whether I’m shopping for activewear, swimwear, or under garments, I’ve never been disappointed in an Aerie purchase.


Typically my go-to for sneakers, Nordstrom has some great activewear brands like as Alo, as well as other big brands that we all know and love (Adidas, Nike, etc.).


I recently tried Girlfriend for the first time after seeing a bunch of Instagram ads and I’m obsessed! All of their pieces are manufactured ethically, are made from sustainable materials, and the prices are so good! (full review here!)

    I’ve actually never heard of Girlfriend honestly, so I’m going to check them out now. I’ve gotten a lot of my workout clothes from Sweaty Betty and Fabletics type of subscriptions!

    I love hearing about new activewear brands. Is Girlfriend the Girlfriend Collective? I tried a pair of their leggings once and they were amazing quality and a great price! Plus, love your Lulu camo leggings, have the same ones. We have similar taste! xo
