Flowers are in full bloom, so it’s time to stop and smell the roses. Or, if you are a fashion forward FitGirl like me, then you can just stop and wear the roses. Florals are an easy way to add a little girly glam to your sweat gear, so I hunted down this season’s RADdest finds and can’t wait to show you how chic the power of a flower is!
Pack These Petals
Grown ups totally wear backpacks, especially when they’re as pretty as the Ravier Printed Backpack from Kipling. It is the perfect size, has a cinch cord and magnetic closure for extra security, the back straps are adjustable (hello comfort) and you will always know where things are since there are cool compartments throughout this RAD bag. So head to the gym, the park or just prance around town in this fun floral knapsack. ($119)
Blossoms For Your Bosom
Keep your girls secure in this blossom covered sports bra from lululemon. The Energy Bra should be a staple in every sweaty sista’s gym bag, so start with this fun print and build your bosom wardrobe from there. Whether you are an A cup or well endowed, you will appreciate this bra.
It has thick straps, so it totally provides medium support for all you yogi ladies rockin’ a C or D cup. Also, the wide band along the bottom holds everything in place (without crazy pressure) and the neckline is high enough to keep your cleavage to a minimum during downward dog. So what are you waiting for, energize those sun salutations with this incredible bra already. ($48)
Say Aloha In This Slip On
Post gym fashion just got an upgrade from paradise. I love this island-inspired slip on. Spotted at Six:02, the Nike Toki Slip Women’s Aloha even feels like a vacay for your feet since they’re super comfy and casually chic. These kicks are totally meant for warm weather, so slip them on and slip them off all summer long. Don’t worry, you won’t wear them out – the canvas upper material and rubber outsoles are both ridiculously durable. ($65)
Sophisticated Sass With Scallops
Playing with petals may be too much for some of you sophisticated ladies. I found a sleek, yet fun print just for you. The Haven Retreat Harem Pants from Sweaty Betty seamlessly goes from your yoga mat to the streets. They are lightweight, sweat wicking and the placement of the seams is sheer genius. Feel free to rock them high on your waist or low on your hips and be sure to take advantage of those deep pockets – perfect to store essentials like red lipstick and your cell. ($130)
Capris With A Cluster Of Color
Can you say flower power! The Bolivia Capri Pant from Onzie is just what your quads and hammies want to be wrapped around this spring. The waistband is low enough to show off your toned abs, but not so low that they slip down when you drop it low in Zumba. Plus the material is everything – it moves with you and stretches to your body without losing the richness in both the design and color. So yeah, let’s meet in the park to sweat a little bit. ($56)
Florets For Your Fitness Tracker
Even your fitness tracker can get in on this flowery fun sis. A new print just hit the Tory Burch for Fitbit® collection and you must add it to your buff arm candy collection ASAP. The pink and white or blue and white Ren Print is perfect for both your weekend workout and your favorite hang out. The adjustable closure keeps your tracker secure and the area that stores your device is super easy to access. Love love love the Tory Burch for Fitbit® Silicone Printed Bracelets. ($38)
