One of the great things about being a woman in the U.S. is that we get some fabulous options for fashionable but comfortable fitness wear! It’s fun to not just think about what you’re going to wear for the day but what you’re going to wear for your workout. It also makes your workout exciting when you look good and feel good.
This post is special because it shows women at different stages of life. I’m representing a woman in her 20s, my sister-in-law Chea is a woman in her 30s (and mother-to-be!), and my mom is a woman in her 50s and a grandmother-to-be! It’s fabulous that Ellie clothes suit all stages of life and various body types!
Disclosure: Even though I received clothes from Ellie, my opinions are honest and my own. This post also contains an affiliate link at no cost to you.
Our Photo Shoot in Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, and San Diego
It was fun wearing my Ellie clothes at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. I had the opportunity to visit Colorado Springs where I grew up since one of my best friends was getting married and I was in the bridal party. Garden of the Gods is such a beautiful place, and I never get tired of visiting it!
From Ellie’s Cosmic Love and Coral Crush Collections, I am modeling the Wish Upon a Star Tank and Double Decker Capri. The blue tank is such a beautiful color. I’m absolutely loving this color right now! This simple, but adorable, tank is such fun to wear! It’s great for workouts, but I also feel it’s a great tank for summer in general. I’ve already had a compliment on it at the gym.
The gray capris are very versatile. The waistband can be turned over so that the whole capri is either gray or has a coral waistband. These capris are possibly the comfiest yet while still feeling very supportive for working out. The fabric is smooth and soft and feels like it’s a very good quality.
From Ellie’s Coral Crush and Cosmic Love Collections, my mom is modeling the Dynamic Duo Top, Solar Flare Legging, It Takes Two Top, and Little Black Legging. The tops are so pretty with the coral color. The designs are very different with the layering. Both tops would work well for working out or for a fun, casual summer top. They’re both lightweight. I especially love the cutout on the sides of the Dynamic Duo Top.
The leggings are comfortable and work with any outfit.They are two classic designs, a traditional black legging and black flare pant. These leggings are flattering and great for all ages of women. The Solar Flare Leggings run on the longer side. I think they’re perfect for about 5’6″-5’8″ or if you have long legs. Chea at 5’3″ and my mom at 5’4″ would prefer theirs shortened.
From Ellie’s Love, Ellie Collection, Chea is modeling the Call Me Coy Top, Under Your Spell Sports Bra, and Heartbreaker Capris. The top is a cute design and flattering for all body types. It’s wonderful that this top works even with Chea being 5 months pregnant! The fun sports bra looks great worn underneath the top to add a little bit of color where you can see the straps. It’s lightweight and breathable, which is what you want for the warm weather or when you’re working out hard (or if you’re pregnant and hot all the time)!
The Heartbreaker Capris are a good length for any height but especially work well for shorter to average height, since they are a shorter capri design. They’re a comfortable fabric. For early on the pregnancy, they are super comfortable. At the halfway point in Chea’s pregnancy, the waistband feels a little tight. Chea says the Ellie clothes are great for pregnancy because they are comfortable and flexible. She also says they inspire you to work out because you feel so good in them.
