A few of you mentioned that you would like to see my workout capsule and voila! I decided when I did my initial purge back in June that I wanted to apply the same principals to the clothing that wasn’t making it into my main capsule. In other words, I didn’t want to just pair down the main portion of my wardrobe, but then have all of these other extras laying around!
I’m still kind of working on my lounge wear, but I think I’ve done a good job of getting my workout clothing down to a minimum. Confession: I used to have a TON of workout clothes. I would do this cycle of buying workout clothes in the hopes that exercise would magically become my most favorite thing ever!! Ha! Still waiting for that to happen. I mean looking cute for a workout is the best part of working out, but clothes will only take you so far, yeah?
Anyway, I now have two workout capsules: one for cold weather and one for warm weather. Obviously the warm weather capsule includes more shorts and less long sleeve layers, I’ll share that one next spring. I usually workout 5-6 days a week so in order to not feel like I am constantly doing laundry I have enough outfits for each day of the week. I mean, with a ten month old, I’m already doing laundry at LEAST once a week so I didn’t feel like I needed more than that.
Other than that, I think it’s pretty self explanatory why I chose what I did. One last note, exercise clothing is one area where I think putting a little more money into it on the front end will pay off in the long run. It sucks to have to constantly replace exercise clothes PLUS the higher quality the fabric the better it is at *ahem* odor absorption. With that word picture lingering in your mind, I’ll leave you with this:
And that’s it! Let me know what you think! Do you have a capsule for your workout clothes as well? What do you include in it? I’d love to know! Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time,
