The Workout Wear edit

Selection from: H&M, GAP, Boohoo, Whistles, Cope Active and Nike

Ok, hands held high here - I've not done any exercise all Summer, and now we're heading into the season where carbs and comfort food are a major factor in getting through the cold, dark months I have decided to join the gym.

I can hear my family laughing as they read this.

After a couple of stressful months, and the fact I'm now on full wedding dress shopping countdown, I've decided to try out Pilates and go running at least twice a week. Obviously, I'm going to need some suitable clothing for these activities (plus, it's another good enough excuse to shop) so I've turned to the high street to see what they have on offer. 

In the past (and I mean way back) I've purchased some cheap bits from Sports Direct. I was really surprised that a few of my favourite brands now do active wear, and I found a great online brand who do some really different pieces - the emoji leggings are so ridiculous I love them. 

I've decided if I'm to take this whole exercise thing seriously, then I'm going to get some nice bits from one of my favourite brands - I've got it in my head that if I spend a decent amount on some pieces, it will give me more motivation to actually go out and exercise in them.

We'll see how that goes.
