Summer Sporty Chic

Hello! Some of you may or may not be aware but I am quite the sporty type. By this I mean, I enjoy basically all sport and I think it's a great way to be healthy, passionate, competitive and even sociable. I was actually quite surprised that I hadn't written a sport based blog post yet, so I took it upon myself to compose a typical summer outfit that I would wear to play some sports!

What I'm Wearing
Top 1- Jack Wills
Top 2- Gilly Hicks
Running Shorts- Topshop
Trainers- Nike

 I find it vital to wear little or loose clothing, as that then enables your skin to breathe- which is pretty important when you are sweating buckets exercising! The two tops I have chosen to share with you are both light weight and a thin material, however the blue Gilly Hicks top is more appropriate for the summer as it is looser and sleeveless. Bottom-wise, these are the first pair of running shorts I've actually owned. Considering I've been a sport addict for a good 7 or 8 years, I do not know how I managed to get away with cropped leggings and sweats for all that time. However, I must say I much prefer running shorts, particularly in the summer time, as my legs are so much cooler and in general this gives my whole body an all round, refreshed feel. Finally, my shoes from Nike are actually very new. I purchased these last week, alongside my back to school shopping, as my old trainers were too small and pretty much ruined. I have longed for a pair of Nikes for agggees, and luckily these were in the sale, but by far my favourite pair I'd seen that day. Anyway, it's important to have a decent pair of trainers to play to your best ability, I much prefer thicker soled footwear to flat soled!

I hope this has given all you sport enthusiasts some inspiration for outfit ideas- I think it's important to be stylish even working out!
