When it comes to motivating oneself for the rigors of the exercise element one factor stands out for sure and aside from the mental preparedness that is the first you’ll have to attain;the other is what to wear?

Picking out a workout ensemble that is both functional as well as fun can make the the difference between doing something begrudgingly (or not at all) or having that mean fighting spirit that keeps you coming back for more. And after the hard work put in take a break with a look that can go from the gym to the smoothie bar, in style. Or maybe you just want a laid back, relaxed no fuss look for quick-run errands. Lucky for us, tastemaker and exercise maven Beyonce recognized how essential the need is and launched Ivy Park, her new athleisure inspired line in collaboration with Topshop also available through Nordstrom stores.

I know for a fact that when I was at my heightened stage of ability and really focused on my training, hitting the gym regularly for work outs (cardio, HIIT and strength) it all came down to all of the principals noted above and believe it or not shopping for a new piece to add to my fitness wardrobe always lifted my moral. I’ll be the first to admit I’ve slacked off quite a bit with a gym membership sitting there at idle taking my money and producing no benefits..all on me,  I know. This might just be the inspiration, er…kick in the butt I need to get back in the gym. So here are a few key pieces I think would make a great addition to my existing line-up. *See below

Notice how she kept the palette basic with black, white, gray and some items are a cobalt blue and a soft coral, overall not too shocking but a good punch of color. So every thing will pair with most items I already own which will make acquiring new pieces all the more enticing and practical. Also of note is the reasonable price point, with most items ranging anywhere from $36 for a Racer back Bra Top to about $65 for the High-rise Legging and $82 for the Hexagon Mesh Bomber Jacket , respectively.


here’s what arrived in my mailbox today which prompted this lovely post.
