Happy Anniversary Sale! From now until August 4th, you can shop brand new styles on sale at Nordstrom. Today is the Icon card holders day, tomorrow is Ambassador, Influencer is Thursday and all card holders on Friday. The sale starts for non-cardholders on July 15th! That’s Monday, so if you are excited to shop but you’re not a cardholder, save items to your wishlist now!

I’ve rounded up my favorite activewear pieces and honestly I went back to the basics. There are lots of in-house brand Zella pieces, which are really nice prices and I can attest that they last and last. I noticed this year that Alo Yoga and Vuori was missing, Nike has been very edited and there is a few Beyond Yoga pieces but none were any that I personally would reach for. I do like the addition of the Spanx AirEssentials pieces (I’ve not tried these but have wanted to!) and I love the addition of Varley. So I’ve added those into the mix as well, but overall I went with the basics that I tend to reach for when hitting the gym!

a few notes

Gym Essentials: The things that I reach for everyday for the gym are usually the most boring pieces if we are being honest. I like pieces that I feel the most comfortable in because if I’m comfortable at the gym, I’ll actually go and stay. (Not me admitting to pulling into the parking lot and immediately pulling out because I hated my outfit.) This includes a short sleeve tee (tanks aren’t my favorite for some reason but I did include one that I think looks nice for others) and sports bras. I have so many sports bras and you guessed it from the NSALE of years past. I like both of these options (and have both!), but I will tel you that the strappy one runs a bit large and isn’t the most support. It’s not one for running with large boobs, let’s just put that out there. I’m also very interested in this melange leggings material this year, that sounds really nice. Oh and we can’t forget the winter gym tops — this long sleeve slub tee looks like a nice early Christmas present for myself. Zella runs pretty true too size, if not a bit generous on some of the tops / jackets. I personally will get larges in all Zella pieces.

Spanx AirEssentials: I’ve not tried this fabric or these pieces before but the reviews seem really encouraging! I find Spanx items to be kinda pricey so for them to be on promo, it makes me want to give them a try this Anniversary Sale! For me Spanx items run small, I am guessing I’m a large in each piece.

FP Movement: I also love FP movement pieces…just not for the gym. I like them as run around clothes, you know? Gym adjacent clothing. With FP Movement most of the tees / tops run big, so I typically get a medium but in the shorts I am a large. (Looks like these shorts are short short so we will see!)

Zella Joggers: I love this pair of joggers — I have them in black and they’re just a go-to during the fall / winter because they’re soft, stretchy and a nice legging alternative. I love this light off-white color as well! Fingers crossed they aren’t see through!
