bybmg: Athletic Wear that is Functional and Stylish

Athletic Wear that is Functional and Stylish

This post is in collaboration with Alex + Abby. All opinions are my own.

So a month or so ago, a friend texted me asking if I would run a 5k with her in October. If you know me, you know I am NOT a running. Some people can go out and run a 5k without thinking about it. I could barely run two minutes straight without a struggle. Many years ago I tried out the Couch to 5K running plan and failed miserably, but this time I figured I could give it a try again. I have an accountability partner. I have an end goal. And I really wanted to do it.

When I run, I HAVE to wear leggings. I like the compression feeling and support on my legs and I love that there's no bunching between my legs. These are the Advantage Capri Leggings from Alex + Abby. and I love the thickness of the fabric, the quality of the seams, and that they have a zipped pocket on the back waist to hold things you don't want to fall out while you run like keys or a card. I got plain black, but they also come in some fun options with contrast stitching and different colors.

Sometimes I go straight from working out to run an errand, or I just rock the athleisure look on nights and weekends. This Moto Texture Jacket from Alex + Abby is super cute and looks great with workout wear but also works with streetwear clothes, too! It has cute elbow patches and is thick enough to feel warm but also breathable, too!

I'm super exciting to be partnering with Alex + Abby! They are a local Iowa athletic company. You can purchase their line on their website and on Amazon! They also have tops, sports bras, and more I can't wait to try!

What is your favorite type of workout wear?
