Welcome to our FOOTD.
Also known as our Fit Outfit of the Day.
Today it features a few of our latest finds from Brooks Running (which, remember, we’re affiliates and ambassadors — and they send us goodies on the reg!) that we are obsessed with. OBSESSED.
Read on for what we’re running in and loving right now!
Stealth Tank & Chaser 3″ Short
Ladies, the Stealth Tank ($40) is simply everything you want a workout tank to be. It’s lightweight, it’s flattering, it’s high performance so it keeps you dry, and it feels so, so comfortable on. I found it to fit true to size, too. And I really love how it fits close to the body but still has enough flow and give to be really forgiving and to move really well with you no matter if you are going for a run or hitting a bootcamp class (or, let’s be real, going to brunch).
And for as much as I love the tank, I LOVE THE CHASER 3″ ($46) SHORTS EVEN MORE. Which is crazy (because I want that tank in, like, every color known to man), but it’s true. The shorts — which also come in a 5″ and 7″ length — are the shorts I can’t stop wearing (and leave me super bummed when they’re dirty and I have to do laundry). With a little bit of spandex, they move insanely well with you and feel so light and airy on. They’re also really flattering — and they have what we all need: two pockets built into the wide slimming waistband (one is even sweat resistance).
Don’t the two look super cute together as an outfit (shown above)? We think so, too. And I bet, they’d look awesome with this matching sports bra! —Jenn
Brooks Running Pure Flow 7
If you’ve been on the hunt for a neutral, lightweight running shoe that’s supportive but still lets you feel connected with each step, the search is over. The PureFlow 7 $100 features a small drop (4 mm) but serious arch support, and when it comes to looks, well, I think the picture speaks for itself. This is a sharp shoe that looks just as good running errands as it does running Yasso 800s. And that sleek design doesn’t just look good — that rounded heel is designed to support your natural movement while minimizing the impact on your joints, and the material on the upper is soft and snug. If you haven’t run in PureFlows before, I would recommend trying them on in a running store before setting out to run any long distances in them, because that lower drop does create a different experience than many other Brooks Running shoes, and for me it’s best for short, fast workouts (or quick coffee runs, for that matter), but I know plenty of people who love to lace up in something more minimal for marathons and more, so you do you!
