As a mom of two little boys, with a million other things to do on a daily basis, it’s hard for me to find the time and motivation to exercise. And when I feel frumpy in my workout attire (especially if I’m going outside to run or heading to the gym), it’s easy to feel even less motivated.
Here are 15 pretty activewear pieces that are sure to get your heart racing and make you want to exercise (and then maybe wear them for the rest of the day)!
