Trying to color coordinate gym outfits can sometimes be a daunting task. I myself sometimes gets frustrated when I can't find the right top to match my capri's or leggings. We want to look fashionable while working out because it does boost our self esteem, even if we haven't reached our fitness goals. I love shopping for exercise clothes and finding items on sale or at a very reasonable price. I put together some tips to help you color coordinate your gym outfits and save a lot of time in the process.

I have been seeing quite a few of the younger ladies in my gym wearing these high-waisted leggings and I always wondered where they found them. I started doing a little of my own research and low and behold I found them for $22 a pair here. The name of them is 90 Degrees by Reflex and they are very comfortable and quite thick and you absolutely can not see through them.

Game Gear and I purchased it on Amazon for $15. I comes in 16 different colors so you have a variety to choose from. I ordered a size medium as I always do with sports bras and to my surprise it was too loose around the waist as you can see in the photos below. I decided to keep it and just pinch it in on the sides with my sewing machine, something that I have to do to all of my jeans.

90 Degrees by Reflex that I purchased on Amazon for $19.99 but I like them and that's all that matters! I'm on a mission to get all the colors that I like because the quality of these legging are so nice and they come all the way up to my navel which I love. My hat was also purchased on Amazon here, it comes in 17 different colors for $10.50/ea.

Now you can see all of my favorite athleisure wear and workout equipment all in one place. I've created a new Pinterest Board called Athleisure Wear & Workout Equipment where I'll be pinning all of my favorite items that I purchased from Amazon with direct links to where you can find them. People always ask me where I got certain items and now I can just direct them to this board.

This is my first purchase from the 90 Degrees by Refles Power Flex Racerback Tank Top collection on Amazon. These tanks come in 40 different colors and the cost is $12.99/ea. I ordered only one in Heather Magenta because I wanted to see how well it fitted. Since I only wear these to the gym, I like then really snug around my small waist. I ordered a size X-small to fit my waist instead of my boobs, I'm a 34DD up top but when it comes to fitness/active wear, I have to go down a size to fit my waist. I really like the quality of this tank and to be honest, the quality and fabric is on the same level as my Nike tank tops.

When I saw these Vesi Star Capri pants on Amazon for the price of $16.99, I though no way, what are they made of! Of course my curiosity got the best of me so I decided to order two pairs (photo of the pink at the bottom), they also come in 5 different very bright colors. To my surprise they are fabulous! They are made of a very thick cotton/lycra and are very stretchable. The only come in two sizes S/M & L/XL. I ordered the S/M and when I first took them out of the package, I thought (no way) are these going to fit... they looked tiny!

These abstract leggings are similar to the other ones reviewed here, they are also from "90 Degrees by Reflex" bought on Amazon. I ordered these also in an X-small and they did not come all the way up on my waist, but they do fit really snug. My reasoning for ordering an X-small (even though I wear a small) is so they can sit really tight on my waist, but these sit low (even though they are sussposed to be high-waisted) because they are too small. So when ordering the pattern prints... order your true size! The solids seem to work for me in an X-small, I have 4 pairs in Black and 1 pair in Grey.... you can find my review of them here.

One of my favorite pastimes is scrolling through all the beautiful photos of women in fitness on Instagram. One thing's for sure, they are totally inspirational and have the best gym outfits to flaunt all those sexy muscles. My goals hasn't been to become a fitness competitor but to become close as possible looking like one. It just seems like I workout harder when i'm looking cute although when I wear this to the gym, I'll wear a matching tank top over it. This outfit came from TLF Apparel and you can find some inspirational photos on their Instagram page here. They're mostly photos of fitness models and that's why i'm hear to review them for you!

I follow a lot (an extremely unhealthy amount) of fitness people on Instagram and a lot of them are quite younger than myself. I love everything about them from their toned abs right down to the food pics they post... its just sheer motivation for me if nothing else. But lately I've become obsessed with all the new fitness wear or active wear that these young ladies seem to be wearing.... I mean i'm crushing really hard because they look really good and I'm sure they feel really good wearing it.

Every girl needs a great pair of leggings that speak volumes, hugs every curve and turns heads without even trying. That's exactly what these High-Waisted Yoga Pants from Missfit Activewear did when I wore them to the gym. I knew I was looking cute and when i'm feeling cute i'm definitely feeling more confident and I lift heavier and work harder... which is my ultimate goals.

Gym life is quickly becoming that #gymlife hashtag that I see many bodybuilders that I follow on Instagram using on their post. It's because everything about that person evolves around their #gymlife. My wardrobe is 75% fitness wear and 25% other. My fitness wear is very fashionable and it's what I wear daily (Monday - Friday) because I spend 2hrs in the gym everyday. I can go run all kinds of errands.... grocery shopping.... clothes shopping.., makeup shopping, etc. in my #gymlife clothes and not even miss a beat.

I recorded a makeup tutorial for my YT channel using the new Urban Decay Vice 3 palette for the very first time. There are so many vibrant colors it was hard to choose. I decided to choose colors that would compliment the fitness wear I had on and I really wanted to keep the look subtle. I feel my makeup looks are more age appropriate this way and i'm loving the Lancome Mascara which stretches out my eyelashes. I will however still play in makeup and create dramatic looks with false eyelashes but I definitely won't be going out the house!

In the world of fitness wear, this is one of my favorite sets. I'm paring this set with a long pink necklace and matching earrings. Besides the fact that i'm uber comfortable and fashionable at the same time, I can turn fitness to fashion in an instant just by adding a pair of sandals.

Just another normal day of running errands in my daily fitness gear. Now that it's Spring, I can wear more of my lighter colors like pinks, corals and whites to really brighten up my day.

Remember Bebe Sports? They were around about 5 years ago and had some of the sexiest fitness wear on the planet. Sexy may be an understatement because some of their stuff was down right x-rated. I have some tops that are borderline lingerie and I wouldn't be caught dead wearing them in a gym!

It's Spring and that means wearing some really fun colors! and when it comes to exercise wear, i'm proud to say that I'm all over the map! This look is by one of my favorite companies, Xersion Fitness Wear which is sold exclusively through JCP. Now I will admit that I usually stalk JCP for the latest fitness wear from Xersion because their fit is truly amazing.
