The Sports Collection- Part 1

I maintain that any article of clothing worn should make one feel great. Be it clothing to do work around the house, to go to the grocery store or, in this case, sports clothes. Sweats and tracksuits were originally made for sporting activities, running, biking, soccer etc. These sweat and tracksuits slowly grew in popularity until they were considered acceptable as everyday clothes. Although I definitely don't endorse wearing athletic apparel in everyday life, I do think that just because one is doing sports, one must not take just as much care in the clothes they choose. It's a matter of psychologically feeling as wonderful as possible, because I know that when I wear sloppy clothes, I feel sloppy, and when I wear a polished outfit, I feel polished.


This will be a series of three posts, each with a different athletic outfit worn by me and more insight into the world of athletic apparel. In the next post I will look over the history of athletic apparel, for women in particular. 
Stay tuned for more!

  7. Hey, I say if it is comfortable and works when exercising, why not always wear it? Who cares if it is over done, as long as it looks good and you look fantastic, it works!

    1. Exactly! Sportswear and regular wear aren't mutually exclusive. There's no big rule book on what is and isn't for sports.

      Thanks for the comment.

    1. Thanks. You can obviously tell that I like the colour purple from my blog. I play field hockey too. Unfortunately, my uniform is orange and black, not the most beautiful combination.
      Thanks for the comment.

  17. What a super cute outfit ! I used to work at a tennis club for about 2 years and always loved seeing the girls and women who took such pride in great tennis match pieces. You look great
