I love nothing more than building a theme around my outfits. It gives you an idea of what you want your overall look to say and makes it easier to create! While I love a good deal and finding good buys online and in stores, sometimes it’s just necessary to get your creative juices flowing and allow the artist within to take over. Today’s post utilized Polyvore, a crazy cool website that allows you to build your own fashion “mood boards”, create your own looks, and shop for specific items. It is a great resource for anyone that is into fashion.
I decided to take 5 songs from my workout playlist, and use them as fashion inspiration. While some of these items are more on the pricey side, I wanted to show that creativity 100% translates into fashion AND fitness!
1. No Doubt “I’m Just a Girl”
Why not take a patterned pair of leggings and use that as the base of your workout look? The rest is simply an add-on to this very cool and very feminine look.

2. Beyonce “Get Me Bodied”
This look is fierce and fun. The pop of red under the Brooklyn tank paired with dark grey leggings and leopard nikes is sure to be an attention grabber at any local gym.

3. Irene Cara – “Flashdance…What a Feeling”
For this look I wanted to go a little 80’s (for obvious reasons). Throw in pops of neon with the headband, crop top, and sneaks and keep it classic “Flashdance” by adding the grey sweats.

4. Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake – “Holy Grail”
For this look I kept it clean and sleek. I love the silver-white-rust color palette and the look is masculine, yet fun.

5. Survivor – “Eye of the Tiger”
This look is great for a jog on a fall afternoon. It is vibrant and truly captures the essence of the song with the leopard, orange, and heather grey sweats.

Who else thinks I should be a spokesperson for Nike?
