Fitness Meets Fashion: Target® C9 Collection

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Target® C9 through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Target® C9, all opinions are my own.

Today’s post is one of my favorites of the week for two reasons: I got to go shopping at Target® and I got to pose awkwardly in the clothes I found before writing it. I never need an excuse to shop at my favorite store, but embarrassing myself is icing on the cake. Luckily for me, the clothes steal the show so you don’t notice my insanity quite as much.

During my little fitness shopping spree, I chose the C9 by Champion® Paisley Legging and Cowl Neck Layered Tank. I’d be lying if I said it was an easy decision. I mean, I wanted to try so many different outfits on. Is this not the typical Target® problem or what? So much good stuff, y’all.

Ultimately, I decided to go with a combination I didn’t have much of: printed leggings and a bright tank top. I really, really love the pieces I ended up with. They even inspired this emo-style selfie, so you know it’s real love.

I told Ryne this was my “bae caught me slippin” look but he didn’t get it. He’s getting old. Anyway, back to the clothes.

C9 by Champion® Paisley Legging: While the look of these leggings initially caught my eye, the fabric’s feel and fit is what ultimately won me over. They are extremely comfortable yet tight enough to stay put during even the toughest of workouts. I run in these and they are perfect. Not to thick and not too thin. Plus, hello, they’re paisley.

C9 by Champion® Cowl Neck Layered Tank: I cheated a little on this one and chose a tank that I already owned, just in a different color. Why? Because it’s amazing. The built in bra is actually thick and supportive, which is usually not the case with these types of tanks. The top layer is flowy but very flattering. Definitely a keeper.

One of the best parts about my new outfit is that it’s perfect for fall evening runs. Right now it’s not quite cool enough to bring out the winter running gear, but the slightly cooler temps mean that my legs are loving a little covering. When it does finally get chilly, all I’ll need to do is grab a jacket on the way out the door.

And with skies like that, I hope I’ll be outside more often than not. What about where you live? Have you busted out the cold-weather gear yet? We’re in this weird “60 degrees one day, 90 degrees the next” phase which means it’ll be 30 degrees before you know it. ;)

Thursday Thoughts: Traveling Edition

1. This morning I chugged a juice and pretended that one vitamin-packed beverage would keep me safe from airport germs. PS: this juice from Whole Foods is delicious, but only if you like beets. Luckily for me, I’ve been obsessed with them my entire life. I was a weird kid. 2. In other healthy eating […]

Busy, Busy, Busy + Football Game Workout

I feel like I’ve been super busy this week, but it’s just that “fake” busy that people are always talking about. The kind where you are just rushing around doing nothing of real importance and then complaining about it to anyone who will listen. Anyway, that’s just my weird way of telling y’all that I […]

Weekend Recap: Quick Trip to Hilton Head

Another Monday is in the books, y’all. Work today was pretty uneventful, which is a really good thing when you’re surrounded by four-year-old children all day. No complaints here. I guess I should just get straight to recapping the weekend. We spent Friday and Saturday night at the beach and the weather was absolutely perfect. […]

Friday Favorites: I’m Cheap and I Know It

Happy Friday! We are currently en route to the beach, but I figured I’d check in one last time before we arrive. I mean, my child won’t let me sing on road trips anymore so what else am I going to do in the car? Since it’s the end of the week, it means it’s […]
