I swear, nothing motivates me more than new workout clothes!
There really should be some study done (maybe there is) about the ROI in the gym for every new piece of workout clothing you purchase.
Who knew my new Fabletics gear would be the thing motivating me most to get up and get moving!
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve seen those Fabletics ads on Facebook that say “get a complete workout outfit for only $15”. Four times I’ve actually clicked to the website, filled my shopping cart, and then closed the window without buying. Literally four different times…
I think the main reason for not pulling the trigger was because I didn’t know the quality of the clothes. Lululemon has trained me too well to not want to wear anything less than them (aka $100+ yoga pants).
Don’t get me wrong, I love those Lululemon yoga pants, but a girl can’t always afford (or justify the spend of) more than a few pairs. I wear workout clothes about 5 times a week so I need more than just a few. I mean let’s be serious, laundry is only done once a week (on a good week) in our household.
It took me evacuating the hurricane a few weeks ago to finally add Fabletics to my wardrobe. My mother and I were doing the best mother/daughter activity in the world, shopping, when we came across a Fabletics store in the mall. I never even knew they had actual brick and mortar stores.
It was great because I could finally test the quality, but awful because I then wanted everything :)
Now don’t get me wrong, the quality isn’t Lululemon status, but I’d say it’s Nike status! And don’t we all love Nike???
These pants are my new favorite go-to pair (yes, even over my Lululemon ones). I don’t know what I’m more obsessed with, the fun pattern at the bottom or the mesh cut-outs in the middle. Edgy, stretchy, and perfect for a long run… or a Starbucks run :)
I also got this purple top which I’m totally wearing to the gym tomorrow!
Have you tried Fabletics before? What do you think of it?
