Since amping up my exercise program to include Pilates, strength training, walking and Zumba, I’ve been living in workout clothes.  Not always the most stylish choice if you need to run an errand on the way to the gym.  So when I was approached with the opportunity to order a piece of activewear for women from Macy’s to try out and review, I was excited.

My selection was a pair of Ralph Lauren Cropped Spa Pants ($69.50). I felt these pants would be chic and presentable for running around town or just lounging.  Even though the reviews on Macys.com stated the fit ran big, I ordered the pants in XL and hoped for the best. Though I’ve lost alot of weight (in most lines I’m a size 16), I’m still a little unsure of sizes.

When I opened the package, I was immediately thrilled with the fabric.  The tag says it’s 87% cotton and 13% elastane — seriously, these pants look and feel great.  I did have to exchange them at my local Macys, however, as the fit was too big (yay!).  When I got to Macy’s, I also saw the accompanying hooded jacket and bought it ($89.50; more than I would ever spend, but I felt the fabric was worth it!).  The total outfit was exactly what I needed.

If you’re looking for comfortable and excellent fitting women’s activewear, I can highly recommend the Lauren Active line from Ralph Lauren at Macys!  What do you think?  Do I have an outfit that will take me to the gym as well as around town?

Disclosure:  GigaSavvy arranged for me to receive a complimentary piece of activewear (pants) for the purpose of this review.
