I hate working out, but I love the way it makes me look and feel. So, I try every trick in the book to get myself amp'd up for those long workouts. One of my tried and true tricks for psyching myself up is buying new workout clothes. Usually, I scour the racks at Marshalls and piece together reasonably cute workout ensembles. But, I 've recently been turned on to Lululemon.
I'd heard great things about their workout clothes and even browsed their stores a couple of times. But, I just couldn't justify paying $86 for a pair of workout pants. I mean, I physically could not muster up the strength to hand over those cute little pants to my cute little sales associate. I kept thinking about all of the "real" clothes I could be buying - that super cute top at Zara, those pants at Bloomie's, those super cute shoes at Nordstrom Rack. But, as luck (or some pretty strong hinting) would have it, my brother in law gifted me a giftcard to Lululemon for Christmas last year and I've been hooked ever since.
Their workout clothes are extremely light, don't ride up, and stay put despite rigorous activity. With that said, I still wonder if the $86 dollars is worth it or if I should pause my Lulelemon shopping until next Christmas. I'd love to hear what you think. Are workout clothes "real" clothes? And how much are you willing to spend on them?
