Comfort before beauty

I am a firm believer of beauty before comfort. I will squeeze my feet into an uncomfortable pair of delicious shoes if I have to because looking cute is way more important than being comfortable, am I right?!

The one time I believe in comfort before beauty is when I choose clothes to workout in. I can never understand ladies that workout in full on makeup or with their hair all done and stuff. If you can pull this look off then more power to you but I can’t think of anything more uncomfortable than sweating by mascara down my cheeks and into my foundation. No thank you!

I personally don’t believe in buying expensive workout clothes. You will be sweating in them anyway so why spend hundreds of dollars on them. Would you get sweat all over your brand new $100 sexy black dress? I don’t think so. I buy majority of my workout clothes from Amazon. The questions I ask myself when looking are 1. will this be comfortable 2. will I have to keep pulling my shorts down while I’m running and 3. will it fit me properly, that is, not so tight that I can’t breathe and not so loose that I’m falling out of my clothes.

When I workout in the mornings, since I do this at home, all I wear are a pair of shorts, a sports bra, a head band to keep my hair away from my face and of course sneakers. Sometimes not even matching because why bother when no one is going to see me and at 4 a.m. in the morning I’m lucky if I have both pairs of the same sneakers on.

I try to match a little bit since I’ll be outside and I do have my reputation and all.

The best thing I did for my feet and specifically my toes, was to get these finger toe socks that keep your toes separated. I wear them every time I work out and they are especially great for when I go running. Because I run long distances, my toes would rub together and chafe and become really painful after and sometimes during my run. These socks saved my toes and feet.

Basically, wear whatever you find comfortable because the last thing you want to deal with in the middle of your workout are your pants riding up, your top flopping around, hair in your face or your makeup running into your eyes.

  1. I agree with you 100%
    I tend to look like a crazy mess when working out. And for me the same even applies whether I’m in public or not. I’ve caught myself wearing pajama bottoms and sneakers while running outside lol.
    I like the finger toe socks. I’ll look those up.

  2. ❤️ the post. I am definitely one of those people that need to be comfortable (rather than look good) when working out. I can always concentrate on the beauty part after I’m done working out 😉 I also buy my workout clothes from Amazon……they are comfortable and moderately priced. Love the idea of wearing those socks……I will definitely buy a pair or two. Thanks for another great post.
