The best spring sporting looks

Summer is here and with it comes the pressure to start eating healthily and get back in shape. One of the best ways to feel motivated and inspired to achieve your fitness goals is to update your workout wardrobe.

Here’s a look at some of the best sporting looks to help you get back on the treadmill and feeling fit and fabulous.

Leggings

Forget tracksuit bottoms and shorts, leggings are the most comfortable and wearable workout clothing available. Most good quality running tights or leggings are made from fabric which creates a cooling effect on your skin and removes sweat.

Leggings also don’t have to be super tight across your entire leg. There are also three quarter length options with a range of contrast panel and stripe detailing to choose from for those looking for something a little different to the traditional plain black pair.

Tracksuits

One of the biggest hurdles you can face when tackling your fitness goals (apart from junk food of course) is an injury. Not warming and cooling your muscles well enough before and after a work out is one of the biggest contributors to sport injuries.

Neutral Claire Scrunch Flats Dexflex by Dexter

There is no way I’m saying goodbye to March without letting you in on the most comfortable flats I have bought to date –  Claire Scrunch Flats Deflex by Dexter. Aside from a reader emailing me where I could buy them when she saw this post, with me wearing the pair. You see, in the last couple of years I have bought a few named brands but was never really satisfied. This explains why I have not published reviews on them. Two of the brands I bought were Yosi Samra and Anthology. Both of which were a thousand or more bucks pricier than Claire Dexflex.

Claire Deflex by Dexter in Neutral

The neutral colored Anthology flats I bought some couple of years back were so pretty, it was hard to resist not to get hold of. But I have had to deal with bruised  just under the ankle part and some corns on a one of my toes. For the record, the sizes I bought were  just my size. Maybe I had to break them in and my Yosi Samra pair more than what I would have wanted. But how about the marks those break-in phase caused? Not pretty. Here’s what’s so sweet that I cannot bear not to let the word out — these Scrunch Flats Deflex by Dexter requires no break-in! Seriously. And no, this ain’t a sponsored post! 🙂

I am so happy to finally find the perfect neutral colored flats for me in these Claire Scrunch Deflex by Dexter pair. 😀

Check out those garters. It is easy to see that those have a lot to do with these flats being ultra comfy.

Claire Scrunch Flats Dexflex by Dexter totally delivers comfort from first wear onwards. Yes, I cannot emphasize enough the NO NEED FOR BREAK-IN fact.
