Spin class workout clothes?

It was not a pretty sight. A small room with 24 stationary bikes jammed close together and lots of people peddling to nowhere, at a furious pace. However, the music was good with flashbacks to the 1980s and a little Katy Perry sprinkled in. Music that you could sing along to or go down some Memory Lane (metophorically of course).

Not quite the Spin Class I attended….

  • Heartrate up?  check
  • Waterbottle? check
  • Feet spinning?  yup

Okay, so not too much else to but check out the other women in class. What are they wearing? Those in great shape, they had lots of high tech, tank style sports tops.  Not really my style….

Looking for inspiration- not happening. There were a lot of tee shirts with NYU, Penn State, LBI  etc.. Many are  oversized and made of 100% cotton. Thirty minutes into class they are soaked in sweat, sticky & totally mis- shapened. These women use their big tee shirts to towel off too.  Like the guys at football practice. Kind of Yuck.

Where is the happy place? How you look pulled together but not like a “Gym Darla”?

Target these Cool Tops

Some mornings you just need to throw on a top & run to the store, walk the dog, or bake some cookies. You are not looking to dress up but you don’t really want to look like a disaster. Your favorite tee-shirt is in the wash, what do you grab next?

Babes with Big Busts– you grab one of these! You think Nordstrom?, Bloomingdale’s?, Neiman (way too main stream for NM)… No No No!!! They are all from Tarjaeee, I mean Target…

This Merona gathered at the neck, comes in several colors & for basic totally not boring. Cute cap sleeves, nice fabric stretch, slightly fitted, scoop neck that is not too low nor too high. $10 buck-a-roos

Mossimos Knit to Woven Boxy Top, $18,  comes in 3 colors. This is a pretty cool top because the front is a silky polyester, which is a great, yet simple, dressed up look, while the backing is a soft cotton blend for stretch. Casual Chic!

Gilligan & O’Malley Fluid Knit Sleep Top $13. Yes it’s sleep wear & I bought two! One in charcoal and one in black. Great for running errands or watching tv. Whatever!
Kudos to Target for giving Modest Girls something to brag about!
