My Thoughts

These capris are the most comfortable workout pants I’ve ever tried on. I tested them on all three cardio machines in the apartment gym: stationery bike, elliptical and treadmill. I’d really like for Cleveland weather to warm up so I can take them on a little jaunt outside, but I know that won’t happen. I foresee these capris being my go to spring and fall pant.

Now the hoodie. The hoodie is sooo comfy and so cute. I also love how long the sleeves are and the fact that there is a thumb hole. As a freeze baby my hands really appreciate it! I definitely foresee this hoodie being my go-to comfy shirt as well as a cover up for the gym and a cool top option for walks on a chilly night.

And just to let you know, my hoodie is a size medium and capris a size large. I probably could have taken a smaller size in each, but it’s better to be little big than a little tight!

    On top of the Modern Hoodie- which is a definite love- I also love with the ALO Warm Up Hoodie in the “fire” color! As an instructor I am always looking for cute outerwear that I can teach in as well. The bright color would definitely perk me up here in NYC on these dreary winter days!
