Happy Spring! Now that spring has officially sprung I'm kicking up my time at the gym and stepping up my athleisure ware. Living in the city makes it necessary to have pieces that can transition easily between errands and the gym without needing to or making time to commute home to change in between. 

I usually go for more neutral pieces for working out in, maybe it's from my history of dancing in a black leotard since the age of 3 which I got used to :)  However, come summer I love a bright top and sneakers. So I've been updating some of my  activewear and investing in pieces that really wash and wear well.  I've found I can't live without my zella leggings, and the high waisted ones are SO good. Personally they're smoothing and hold you in without feeling restricted. I wear mine constantly and the quality stays. I wear them often not just to the gym too.  I've also been into this cropped top sports bra trend because I hate feeling restricted or having anything cling to me when I'm in a dance or pilates class. Then it's easy to throw a tank on over the top and jacket to transition into wherever I go to next. I've found so many unique styles at varying price points. The one I'm wearing above is from T.J. Max and was less than $20 and a great quality! My sneakers are the black and white pegasus style by Nike and I love the support and comfort they provide. I can wear them all day and they're perfect for running and lifting in. I even have a pink pair for summer that I bought twice because they're THAT good! 

I've been rewearing this Nike sweatshirt lately because it's easy to throw on and is long enough for leggings. It's fit is a little oversized which works for my taller frame. It's on the pricier side, but I do wear it a ton. It also comes in a black fabric with white print I highly recommend. 

My sunglasses are the tort/black print and can be found here.

Now here's to wishing the snow clears up from New York so it can actually start to feel like spring! I'll be sharing some other graphic print tees for the gym soon, so stay tuned on my shop-my-instagram tab or my colorsofcolleen instagram account.
