I have been interested in athletic clothing from Lorna Jane since I first spotted the store front in the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego. When I first visited Lorna Jane, I mentioned to the sales associate that I had never heard of the brand. The sales associate told me that it’s an Australian brand and that the founder, Lorna Jane, created the line because she found women’s athletic clothing dull and uninspiring. That was 15 years ago and the brand has grown and expanded in the US.
Luckily, there is a Lorna Jane store front located on El Paseo in Palm Desert. I stopped by to find a pair of capri leggings. The sales gal was really helpful and gave me three pairs to try. I purchased the Lila Core Stability 7/8 Tights in a size large.

These athletic capri’s are probably the best pair I’ve ever owned, because not only are these a pair of fitness pants, but they also behave like shapewear. Now, I’m no huge fan of shape wear, but for gym bottoms, my preference is for the lower half to be firmer than it really is, while I work on making things firmer. Yes, I’m nuts.
Anyway, after I took off the capri’s I noticed this red dot on the inside of the pant leg and upon further inspection I noticed it was a little heart. How cute. At first I thought it was a security tag, but the Lorna Jane web site said that the heart lets the buyer know that the product was made with love. Awww, too sweet.

I also want to mention the cost of the Lorna Jane capris because they were not cheap. I paid $95.99 and yes, totally expensive for workout clothing. However, I consider these athletic pants as an investment in my health and well being.
If you are looking for a less expensive pair of fitness capri’s I recommend the C9 Champion Curved Cuff Capri Legging, $24.99 at Target. I was lucky enough to find a size large at the store, but a size large is hard to find so I recently ordered a second pair online. These capris don’t have the same compression as the Lorna Jane’s, but they are a good fit and I felt confident wearing these to the gym.
On to the rest of the athletic outfit …
Fila Racerback Tank (Kohl’s) | Lila Core Stability 7/8 Tight (Lorna Jane) | GoWalk Fuse (Sketchers)
For a top, I’m wearing the Fila Sport Racerback Workout Tank in Summer Bloom from Kohl’s. I have two other similar tanks and I really like this style. The tank is fairly long and the moisture wicking material keeps me cool. This top also comes in pretty solid colors and unique prints.
GoWalk Fuse in Navy/Coral (Skechers)
I am officially obsessed with the Go Walk Fuse athletic shoes from Sketchers. These are my second pair, (first pair here) and I love the goga mat foot bed which is ultra comfortable. I wouldn’t recommend these shoes for running, but for walking and a weight workout – these shoes are great.
So that’s pretty much what I’ve been wearing to the gym. What do you usually wear for your workouts?
