Did you ever notice that most of the clothes designed for the gym aren’t quite fashionable enough to wear in public? Or, on the flip side, fashionable clothes aren’t flexible enough to wear to the gym! I don’t know about you, but I’m really tired of only having it one way or the other. I want clothes that I can move in, yet also wear to a school function, shopping trip or even a date.

With Nancy Rose Performance, you can finally have the best of both worlds: gorgeous styles that give you a pulled-together look and flexible clothes that are comfy enough for your afternoon yoga session!

Nancy Rose: Fashion Meets Function

Nancy Rose Performance was actually founded by a gymnast named, obviously, Nancy Rose. She is a PA girl like me! Unlike me, though, she competed at Pennsylvania State University (THE Penn State) and was a nationally ranked elite gymnast. Unfortunately, a shoulder injury took her off the gymnastics floor halfway through her college career. She didn’t let that stop her from becoming a force to be reckoned with, though. She turned to her other passion: fashion.

With a background like that, it’s no surprise that Nancy Rose Performance is the perfect marriage of fashion and flexibility. At Nancy Rose, every piece is actually field-tested. The crew wears the designs to yoga classes, on treadmills and while running through the city to catch a train! You’ll find dozens of fun yet functional tops, pants, shorts and more at Nancy Rose Performance.

Fall Fashionista Prize

Thursday is the start of the Fall Fashionista giveaway. Are you excited? I am! It’s my first time participating, so I want to make it a truly stellar event. Take a look at the fabulous outfit that Nancy Rose Performance will be providing to my winner:

Nancy Rose Performance Fusion Wrap Top Paintstorm


Fusion Wrap Top Paintstorm

An elegant yet breathable top inspired by the ballet, the Fusion Wrap Top Paintstorm features a built-in signature Scoop Bra. It’s made from Peruvian pima cotton blended with Lycra® for optimum fit, while the crossed back straps keep it in place during your workout. The style enhances your waistline and bustline, making you look fabulous before, during and after your time at the gym! The Fusion Wrap Top retails for $78. 




Teaser Pant – Fitness Pants

With such a great top, you need a tremendous pair of comfy fitness pants to go along with it, don’t you? These Teaser Pants are made from Nancy Rose Performance’s own blend of nylon/Lycra®. The medium-rise fit is perfect for any body type, and the compression waistband hugs your body without causing the dreaded “muffin top.” It even has an invisible zip pocket so you can keep your cash, keys or phone handy! The Teaser Pant retails for $88, bringing the Nancy Rose Performance prize to $166. 

Both the top and pants are preshrunk, so they fit great every time you wear them. Take a look at a few of my other favorites from Nancy Rose Performance:
