Zella Leggings for Working Out and Feeling Pretty

zella capris like lululemon wunder unders
Lately, I've been trying to focus more on taking better care of myself. As much as I can, I'm trying to say no to fried foods, moving more and worrying less. To motivate myself, I decided to get a new pair of workout pants since my one pair of Lululemon Wunder Unders were taking a severe beating. I'm very particular about workout pants—I prefer mid-calf compression capris in a thick, non-sheer material with a cotton-feel, not to be specific or anything haha—so with my list of criteria, I set out in search of a new pair in a bright, fun color.

I bought a pair of Zella Live-In leggings which have become my new obsession. Here's why:

  • Reasonable price tag (especially compared to Lululemon's Wunder Unders)
  • Thick, non-sheer, non-shiny material perfect for yoga
  • Similar design to Wunder Unders with a hidden waistband pocket and triangle gusset (Zella poached a Lululemon product manager to design the line!)
  • Fun colors
  • Wide, mid-rise waistband=no muffin tops
  • Stays in place 
  • Makes your tush look cute :)

What motivates you to love your body? Do you have any workout pants you swear by? Hope you are working out and feeling pretty today :)

You look so darling in those! I have a list of criteria when shopping for workout bottoms too, how funny! Cute and colorful workout apparel definitely helps me feel pretty while burning off calories :)

Cute leggings and great stopping by. I feel when I visit your blog, I'm also visiting you. Hope you are well, Sobrina :)

Those are very cute. I also love your shoes and the bright laces. :) I have been very bad and haven't worked out in ages. I prefer black work out clothes that don't show sweat too much but I do love how the colorful ones look!

lol I was just going to say, not specific at all!

I'm also really particular. I prefer non-spandex shorts, even in the winter in 30 degree weather. I just can't handle the feeling of having any material stuck to me as I sweat. I actually even have a pair of shorts that I've been running in since like high school. I have no idea how the elastic has held up for so long. I do have some headbands that do dual duty of pulling my hair back and being accessories, though, so those make me feel happy :)

ami, i have a pair of shorts that I've worn for forever too! They are completely falling apart and even the unfortunate brown stain on the bum (which I swear is from rust or something haha) don't stop me from wearing them.

I love the colorful capris! I'd definitely feel better working out in those than in my plain old black pants and high school sports tees. Maybe someday! And I like how they yours match your shoes so well. I have a pair of asics and I LOVE them! They're gray with bright purple and lime green.
