10 Cute Gym Bags For Fall
As I get older, there have been certain moments in my life in which I have distinctly felt like an adult. One of these moments was when I purchased my own car. Another moment was when I took my IKEA silverware to Goodwill and purchased something more substantial. And, while it may sound a little odd, another one of these moments was when I bought myself a real fucking gym bag.
I fought the transition to real-life gym bag for years. I was fully comfortable trucking my sweaty yoga pants in reusable grocery bags that smelled like old cheese and receipts. What did it matter? I went on like this for years living in a blissfully mediocre gym-bag state until I realized that, as a fitness professional, I should probably grow the fuck up. I realized that carrying my wardrobe from class to class in a tattered grocery bag was probably something that I could do better, and likely not great for my overall professional ~lewk~. I reluctantly bought a real one. I was surprised how fancy it made me feel. I realized what I had been missing all these years without the convenient luxury of sweat-proof pockets, zippered compartments, and reinforced strapped. I had fully transitioned into the role of grown-ass woman. (Just kidding, guys. I had chips for breakfast this morning.)
Still dragging your feet? I know, I know. It's a hard transition. But I believe in you. And you are a grown-ass woman. It's time you started bringing your gym clothes to work in a bag that can't double as a recycling container.
I purchased a Herschel bag (similar to number four) a few months ago and have become totally obsessed. It's large enough to hold my laptop, the perfect size for a weekender bag, and can easily (and inconspicuously) carry multiple bottles of wine in public spaces when planning for mild levels of debauchery.
Look at you making grown up choices! I'm so proud. Also, you have excellent taste.
