When I was occasionally doing exercise, I felt OK about buying expensive, high quality active wear that will last for years and years.
But now that I’m active 3-4 times a week (sometimes more), I go through my gym / running / active clothes so quickly that I often find myself with a pile of used, stinky clothes and nothing to wear! And sometimes “having nothing to wear” becomes an easy excuse for me to skip going for a run for that day haha!
So I’ve been looking into more AFFORDABLE active wear – that still looks good and looks a bit different.
Let me be honest, sometimes when I turn up to a gym class and see that 5 other women are wearing exactly the same Target top as me… I know it’s not a fashion show, but I still feel a little un-special OK?
I also don’t like active wear with big shouty slogans, like “ONLY YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!” – and I only say that, because I used to have a tank that said that and I felt ridiculous whenever I wore it :P
Anyway, so I found some really cool tank tops from FashionJunkee.
They are animal print, burnout tank tops, similar to the Stella McCartney range, and waaaay cheaper.
They look SO COOL! And they are only US$12!
The tank tops are made from a light cotton blend, they are soft and breathable. Because of their loose fitting design, they are comfortable and easy to wear and move around in.
They come in different colours like Aqua, Peach, Lavender, Lime Green, Coral and of course Black and White. Check out the whole colour range here.
I’m usually a size AUS 6/ UK 6 / US 2 and the tank that I’m wearing is a Size SMALL. It would easily fit someone size AUS 6 – 8.
The ‘burnout’ design makes the tank a little sheer, so you can show off your coloured sports bra, or layer another coloured tank top underneath.
And you can wear them as casual wear, beach wear, pool side wear…. they are super versatile!
FashionJunkee have been my blog sponsors for a really long time! They are based in the US and so the team have organised a special shipping promotion for all my US and international readers.
$25 Shipping on orders of $75 or more for International orders
$7 Shipping on orders of $75 or more for Domestic U.S. orders
The promo runs across the whole site, so you don’t need to use a code.
(For my Australian readers, the flat $25 option is cheaper than the new US parcel forwarding service by Australia Post!)
Plus if you sign up for their mailing list, you’ll be the first to be notified about their Black Friday and Cyber Monday coupons and deals!
Buy a couple of tops! Buy for your girlfriends!
