October Shopping Summary



Old Navy Active TopOnzie Sports Bra c/o Shopbop | The Limited Blazer (seen here)| Koral Activewear Leggings c/o Shopbop (seen on Instagram here)| Heroine Sport Leggings c/o Shopbop | Old Navy Leggings | Dr. Scholl’s Flats

During Shopbop’s friends and family sale I decided to splurge and use the credit I’d saved and get some awesome new workout leggings and a fun sports bra that I could wear under my mesh Old Navy active top. I wore the top, the sports bra, and the Koral Activewear leggings to the gym and my trainer said I looked sharp. I also managed a personal record for deadlifts that day, too. New workout clothes always put a spring in my step!

And speaking of steps, I had a $75 gift card to Zappos I earned from doing some product testing and I FINALLY found some cognac flats. After I ordered and returned at least 4 other pairs, I decided these Dr. Scholl’s ones were the winners.

I also splurged and ordered a shirt via eBay. See, I actually “Hulked out” of my J. Crew black watch plaid shirt one day in the gym locker room! I put it on after my workout and realized there was a huge shredded hole under one of the arms. Not at the seam, though. Nope, just randomly in the middle of the fabric! And since this is one of my favorite shirts I new I had to replace it. Thankfully I found one via eBay even though it was a little bit more than I would have liked to have paid for a shirt that is several years old. Oh well. Worth it.

You may notice that I didn’t put prices on the items I bought. Everything from Shopbop was covered by my credit (except for $16 in tax) and the shoes were purchased with a gift card so no money out of my pocket for those, either. And, to be honest, Old Navy and The Limited have so many sales that it’s impossible to see an item for the same price day-to-day there. I will tell you, though, that the Old Navy items are GREAT quality for the price. Seriously. Just go check them out. You won’t be mad.

    I love love love those leggings! Old Navy is really killin it with their activewear- and to have mesh leggings too?! Awesome. And those flats look SUPER comfy and supportive…I wanna be a tester too! Was it a lot of work?

      I’m about to order more of the Old Navy leggings. They’re currently my favorites!

      For the product testing, I was testing shampoo. I got a new shampoo in the mail every two weeks for 8 weeks. I had to use it for at least a week and then fill out a questionnaire about what I thought about it. I don’t know if they are currently accepting any other people into their product testing but I can certainly find out!

    Yay, so glad you found brown flats! And just in time to get some good mileage out of them for fall 🙂 I REALLY like Old Navy’s activewear. I’m not really one to buy activewear (I have more than I know what to do with as it is), but when I do buy activewear, I HATE spending a lot of money on it – I just can’t convince myself to spend $$$ on something I’m only going to sweat in. But Old Navy’s stuff is fantastic, affordable, AND cute. Win win win. My pair of running shorts from them is one of my favorites.
