A Winter Jog

Leia loves Juicy Couture, but its definitely not for me. I do like to look good when working out, but also like to have something thats more comfortable than anything else. I usually go for jogs in the morning, which is refreshing in the summer, but freezing in the winter. I know it's always hard to dress for exercise in the cold, because you quickly build up a sweat and get hot.

I'd recommend some colour, just for some extra motivation. It just adds a bit of fun. A few good comfortable pairs of sweat pants are essential. I'd go for these instead of shorts, because you don't want to get too cold. But it's tougher when it gets to arms. Personally, I'd wear a tank or a t-shirt, and I'd avoid wearing a hoody on top because when you get hot, you'll have no where to put the hoody. What I do like are the off-shoulder jumper like things (yup, I don't know what they're called). They're really comfortable, and also really light, so perfect for a run.

But, what you really need for a good run are a decent pair of running shoes. I'd say get one expensive pair from Nike. They do really good trainers, that don't look too bad either. A good pair of running shoes are essential for a run. They support your feet really well and are also really comfortable. I have a pair of Sport Skechers and they really are perfect for a run. So before you buy anything to run to, a good pair of shoes are a priority.

What do you wear for a cold run?

You're so good! There is nothing that can make me go for a run in the freezing winter cold! I don't mind the gym in the early AM though, but Juicy works fine for me.

Hi, Nike and Adidas are two good ones to wear when go running ;) @ Paris Fashion Week

You definitely have more motivation than I do. Lol. I don't go running in the cold if I can help it. I would go to a gym however. In that case I would wear sweatpants and a long sleeve t-shirt. I'm pretty simple. :)

It's hard for me to run in the cold but I think I like Nike probably or maybe anything warm lol.

Great post! Loving the looks you created. It's always nice to look good when you're getting your exercise!

I typically enlist the assistance of a hoodie and legging-type pants when working out in the winter; and, of course, the obligatory Adidas sneakers - white with baby blue stripes for me! :)

Fabulous collage, S ~ totally inspirational!

When I run in the winter, I swear by Hot Chilis, which are skier undergarments; they really keep me warm!

I run when it's chilly out, but not freezing-can't do it. I kind of make up my own exercise outfits. If it's fall like weather I wear leggings or tights I guess, and just a slightly fitted T-shirt and either a some type of zip up with Nike's.

Makes me wanna go run now!

WendyB said...

I don't run and avoid the cold at all costs :-)

I don't go for a morning run. I am pathetic and like to lay in bed till I have to get up for work. LOL! I do a lot walking though and use my treadmill. Great polyvore! I would get a few of those colorful tops!

ana said...

Color color color!!! you are so right :)
I run with a pair of reebook and black pants with whatever shirt I found... I have a favorite one from LA it's pink... I love it...

Sierra said...

I love Juicy too, she has good taste, lol. I usually just layer my Nike tank under a jogging hoodie that I unzip and long jogging pants, can't believe it is time to make sure I stay warm when I jog!

v. cute. i never go on a run, cold or warm out, but i do lift and walk at my gym, and i covet cute workout wear. in fact, i was about to do a post just like this one! i saw a similar feature in lucky magazine, but all of their stuff was SO unnecessarily expensive, so i was planning to do a more affordable version. your items look totally reasonably priced and super cute. i love colour too.

Luinae said...

I don't think I've ever gone for a jog in my whole life- but those cute exercise clothes are making me reconsider!

I run a lot, and generally wear capri tights and something a bit warmer on top.

Can't agree with you more about splashing out on decent running shoes!

I wear layers with moisture whisking material. Lots of north face and Patagonia.

Love your fun and bright picks.

Hahaha, well, I don't run, it;s shameful really. I should start working out, but I just can't lol. However, I love under armor, my sister is really sporty and she wears a lot of that. But I am with you on Juicy Couture, It isn't for everyone

Michael said...

Wow! Who knew you can be so fashionable jogging?

Mary-Laure said...

It's really cool that more and more brands and designers are offering gym wear that's cool and pretty - I like what Stella McCartney does for Adidas.

E said...

I don't know! I've been so bad about running lately! I never look stylish when I work out, too :-( But these are really cute selections!

Hi Sherin!

Thanks for the comment. Ya I sit and work in a Dr's office all day and then come home, make hubby dinner and take the dog for a walk. that's about it lol I'm tired, but not tired enough to pass out when I hit the bed like the hubby is. Driving me nuts! Anyways, I think I might start swimming in my pool every night again, that should help...

Unknown said...

That is a great polyvore set! I wanted to also say thank you so much for that new award! My blog is better than ice cream?! What a compliment! Thank you for thinking of me! You two are so amazing!
