Attention, world: I have finally started working out, thanks largely to the magic of ClassPass. I may do a later post on how I found the motivation, got over the intimidation factor and became someone who actually kind of looks forward to exercising, but for now, I’m focusing on the fun part.
Shopping, of course! Shiny new athletic and athleisure wear is a big part of why we all do this, right?
And speaking of shiny and new, I’ve had these Alo Yoga Moto Leggings sitting in my cart for awhile. I am trying to expand my workout-clothes horizons beyond Lululemon, although I do love a good Lululemon legging. I discovered Alo while shopping Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale and it turns out, I kind of love it. It’s a Los Angeles-based fitness brand with some definite California-cool vibes — very street to studio. Or barre to bar, as the case may be. Oh, and unlike Lululemon, it actually goes on sale, and you can find Alo at Nordstrom Rack, too! Bonus: it’s a legit celebrity favorite.
Which brings us back to the leggings, specifically. Pretty much every it girl and model under the sun has been spotted out and about in Alo moto leggings, like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Which is cool, if you’re into that sort of thing… and I am.
I love that they’re edgier than your average legging thanks to the moto detailing and almost leather-like look. There are few things better than a great pair of leather or faux-leather pants, so even better if my workout clothes have that vibe, right? Heck, you could probably wear them on a night out because they’re just so cool, and no one would be the wiser that you are rocking leggings aka the comfiest pants ever. Yes, $110 is a little steep, but luckily Alo is also sold on Amazon. Guess who happens to have an Amazon gift card? This girl!
So… should I do it? Should I bite the bullet and buy these guys? Or is there better stuff to spend my Amazon gift card on out there?
