The Lowdown on Layering For Outdoor Exercise

When it comes to outdoor exercise in the fall, I really don’t know how people do it without layers. I’ll be absolutely freezing one second and hot & sweating the next. Not to mention the weather… You leave your apartment when it’s cloudy and 15 minutes later, the sun is beating down. It’s a total crapshoot. Thus, layers.

You can’t really layer your pants (that seems awkward), but you can definitely build your look on the top. Cute sports bra… Versatile tee… And then a long-sleeve shirt or hoodie to top it off. You’ll be prepared for almost anything! I’ve been wearing this hoodie non-stop since it came in the mail. Mainly around my apartment since it hasn’t been that chilly outside (yet!), but still. It’s definitely getting some use indoors and I know I’ll be wearing it to-and-from the gym throughout the entire season ahead.

I’m definitely not one to only wear a sports bra for a workout, but with the high-rise performer tights, I actually don’t mind at all. And when the sports bra is this cute, it makes it even easier to show it off! The high-rise tights come all the way up to your hipbones, and since I have a shorter torso, they hit just at the top of my belly button. (On the website you can see how they are just below the model’s belly button!)
