Having yet again been totally inspired by the London Marathon and also just returned from a holiday in Sydney where EVERYONE works out before breakfast, I thought I'd focus this blog on stylish sportswear.
The stylish sportswear market is certainly quite limited but I have found some fabulous, affordable performance pieces and have also added a few cool, casual tops for layering and completing your outfit.
With sports gear like this even I might have to get fit!

Go for something with a more relaxed fit with this loose fitting drawstring vest from H&M. A great alternative to the usual skin tight sports tops and being made in a breathable fabric it will keep you cool too.
