Fitness Fashion: DA Active Brand Review

There's a reason that 'fitness fashion obsessed' or some version of it now graces all of my bios. I confess: I'm madly in love with fitness fashion. All of it. Workout clothes, shoes, gym bags...love.

After years of sweating in baggy t-shirts and whatever I could find to pull on I am jumping head first into beautiful workout clothes.


Recently I was sent items from DA Active to review. From the moment I opened the package I was smitten. In fact I think my first words were "Good gravy this stuff is gorgeous!" That *may* have even appeared in an email to the company. Hey, I'm nothing if not honest and myself. 

From daactive.com:
da active is lifestyle-inspired activewear. What does “da” stand for? Simply, do it again. It is the essence of what we do and who we are, whether you are doing another set of reps in the gym, picking up the kids or volunteering. Go forward with each step. Put positive things into your life…then do it again.

I love that.
Really loving the graphite/turquoise color combination.
I have never found a pair of shorts or a tank top that I would run in public in...until now.
A run tank I'll actually run in?! No. Way.
Madly in love with the Run Short and T-shirt. While they call it simply a t-shirt, I will tell you it is the perfect running top. Perfect.
My thoughts on everything I've tested out:

I've put these things through their paces: ran in them, lifted in them, plyo'd in them, grocery shopped in them, and washed them. I guess this is really more of a brand rave, because I am just that smitten with this brand. I love the fabric, the fit, the colors, the quality, and the fashion all rolled into DA Active. This is a brand that I will return to again and again and absolutely recommend.

How about you? Do you have a passion for fitness fashion?
