Zone Zella: my favorite workout pieces

I thought I’d try something new with this post and take you guys shopping with me!  I’ve talked about my love for workout clothes many times before and one of my favorite brands is the Zella brand at Nordstrom.  When Nordstrom reached out to let me know that they had a special pop up shop in the downtown Seattle store just for Zella,  I was intrigued and wanted to check out Zone Zella and shop around.

I love that they now have a line of shoes!  The colors are right up my alley, I love brightly colored sneakers.  Nordstrom has always been a favorite place to shop and when I started working out on a regular basis and needed some cute workout clothes, they were one of the first places that I shopped at.  When I discovered Zella, it quickly became one of my go-to brands for all my yoga and workout gear. 
I loved shopping the pop up shop and checking out all the new styles.  I seriously wanted to try everything on but here are a few outfits and my favorites from the bunch.
This is a typical gym outfit for me.  This jacket is great if you are out running at night as it’s reflective and also a really great fit and not constricting in any way.  I don’t do a lot of running anymore but I like it because it matches the rest of my outfit 🙂  I totally brought home the Dolman top as it was so comfy and perfect to wear to yoga.  And let’s just talk about these leggings for a sec as I love love the mesh panels on the back.  I love that they are stylish and functional!

I loved the details on this jacket and the slightly slouchy silhouette which makes it look less “athletic”.  I’m also a fan of these leggings, I really do love the mesh detail as it looks great but would really keep you cool during an intense workout.

This top is so cute and I had to pair it with a brightly colored sportsbra as I love a pop of color.  I feel like a lot of workout stuff can be tight and clingy which is good for some days but most days I just want to feel comfortable while working out and so a tee like this is great for those days.

I’ve always been a big fan of the Zella line but after trying this stuff on I really want to add a ton more into my workout wardrobe.  I love that it’s workout wear without looking too athletic.  It’s so on trend but functional too which is pretty much what I look for in my gym clothes.  My only concern is fit wise, it does run a little big so although I was wearing XS in most of the items I felt like they were a bit bigger than what I’m used to wearing.  (Full disclosure I did have to pull the leggings up so that they fit correctly otherwise they were too long.)  If Zella did a smaller size or even petite sizing I’d be so all over that!

My picks from the post and a few other pieces that I love!

Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

    We don't have a Nordstrom in Ottawa yet (first one opening in March) so I will make sure to check out Zella then. I typically support Canadian brands like Lululemon, Lolei or One Tooth…but I've heard a lot about Zella so it will be worth a look 🙂
