Disclaimer: Unlike fitness-maven, Hannah Bronfman, who’s photo can be seen above, exercise is a relatively new, and thus novel experience for me—brought about this year solely because of the fact that I’m getting married. In addition to being a walking cliché, however, a combination of literal walking, some gym action, yoga, and Pilates has been as great for my mood and lifestyle as it has been for my appearance.
That being said, my newly-discovered “active lifestyle,” has also caused me to consider a new category when shopping that I never paid much attention to before. It also may have caused me to go a little overboard on the athletic gear, which is bad if you’re my wallet, but it’s good if you’re one of our readers! While I don’t suggest buying all these things at once, or even at all if you don’t need them, if you’re looking to pick up a few pieces (in moderation), my list is at your service!

One that gives you actual support during a workout while still looking sleek.
Did I need it for anything? Nope. Would I buy it again? Absolutely.
Nothing makes you feel more “tucked in.”
Because doesn’t everyone need a pair?
Nothing makes you want to go on a walk like a cute walking outfit.
For warmer days!
For when you want to really hit the gym.
For walking to and from Pilates.
So I can feel a little less like a bag lady walking around NYC.
It might seem out of place, but I felt the need to share how amazing the grip on this yoga mat was.
