Sporty Chique

If you spend a lot of time in the gym, your sports clothes become just as important as your ‘normal clothes’. You don’t want to be seen in the same outfit everytime you’re doing your workout. Moreover, new sports clothes are a good motivation to keep you going when you’re in a fit dip.

Nowadays, you see a lot of sports clothes and sneakers outside of the gym. According to us, this is a really good development! Don’t get us wrong, we love high heels and a beautiful dress, but sometimes you just don’t feel like wearing all of those clothes. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should wear your worn out jogging pants with some flipflops and white socks. There are the most beautiful alternatives that feel just as comfortable. The sporty chique trend is now reaching its highest levels. Even on the catwalk you’ll see that outfits are more often combined with sneakers and models are wearing the most fashionable leggings. It looks like the fashion world is getting more and more acceptable towards the always-on-the-go woman and we think this is a nice development! Honestly, can you go back and forth for a whole day on heals? We think it’s physically impossible.

fgc3

Nowadays, you can go grocery shopping or drink a cup of coffee with your friends in a bar in your fashionable sports clothes. Of course, don’t fool yourself by only socializing in your sports outfit. Wear these leggings during a killer workout as well. If you feel good in what you wear, you can truly shine in what you’re doing!

Be sure to go to our webshop, because there are no shipping costs! Every order over 75 EUR in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany won’t have any shipping costs. Also every order over 150 EUR worldwide will also have no shipping costs. YAY! Be sure to order quick so you’ll have your goodies before xmas!

Print Jacket

Jackets are perfect for cold weather! The best thing about this jacket is that you can wear it inside out. If you don’t feel like wearing a print, you can always wear a black jacket. This jacket shows you the true meaning of multifunctional.

 

 

 

 

 

Gym Bra

If you are going for a workout in the gym and want to feel fashionable and comfortable, this gym bra is perfect for you. Combine it with a long tights or a muscle tee and show your strength!

Hoodie Yoga Comfy

Doing some yoga poses can be really relaxing after or before a stressful day. But some days drinking wine in yoga pants sounds like a way better idea. Go pour yourself a glass (or two)!

 

 

 

 

Long Sleeve

When it’s summer you easily go for a tank top or a T-shirt. Because the winter is much colder, you can go for a long sleeve. Nice and warm. Plus, this nice color will pimp up every outfit!

 

 

 

Fashion: Cozy Yoga Time

Hi Girls! It’s getting colder and the days are getting shorter. For most girls this is the time where we switch some of our nice sunny outdoor workouts for cozy indoor activities. Personally I love doing yoga in the winter, because it keeps my muscles long and warm. It’s one of the best ways to prevent injuries! Also, it’s a really good excuse to check out the latest Fall & Winter yoga collections. I picked my personal favorites to show you today for some cozy yoga time!

Beanie here, done that

When you hit that fresh cold air after a yoga lesson, make sure to keep your head warm with our  cool beanies, available in black and grey!

Victory Define Sports Bra (Nike)

What a gorgeous colour, right? I love this sports bra for yoga, because of the low neckline. It matches perfectly with any flowy yoga top. The racerback will provide the support you need.

Behind the #FITGIRLCODE scenes

Hi Fit Girls! The legendary moment has arrived for me to write a piece of text for this amazing platform! Although some of you might have encountered a personal note attached to their webshop order(s) signed by ‘Fit Girl Danique’, many of you probably do not have a clue who I am and how I take part in the #FITGIRLCODE crew.

I met Aranka during the final weeks of my Master studies and became enthusiastic because of her entrepreneurial spirit and her passion for sports and fashion. Coming from an entrepreneurial family myself and sharing the very same passions in life I decided I wanted to be part of the #FITGIRLCODE team. In the midst of summer I began a new adventure at #FITGIRLCODE and became responsible for setting up and launching the brand new #FITGIRLCODE webshop.

The webshop launched… And, my goodness, we have been overwhelmed by your amazing support! The orders kept coming in and it was hectic for the team to keep up, but I’m proud to say we have managed. The webshop is running steady these days and we’re receiving e-mails and orders from all around the world. It is great to see that the #FITGIRLCODE spirit is spreading across the globe, and, as I always put it: we’re getting closer and closer to world domination!

Of course I’m more than happy to hear from you girls (and potential Fit Guy boyfriends) what you like about the webshop, but especially what you would like to see in the future and what we should work on. So at all times, feel free to send a e-mail to shop@fitgirlcode.com and let me know!

Top 5 Sporty Musthaves for Fall

Some of the Fit Girls got together and made a short list of the Top 5 sporty musthaves for fall, especially for you fit chicks reading this! We sat down and debated, eventually coming up with these items to brighten you up during this transitional season and keep you warm in the process! 

 

1. Nike tech butterfly hoodie

 

This asymmetric, comfy fleece hoodie is at the top of our (wish)list! It’s gonna keep you warm in the windy autumn days, but also going to look stylish no matter what. You can even choose from more colour options here.

2. Adidas yoga mat by Stella McCartney

 

Whether you’re already taking yoga classes or not (this is a good reason to start), a mat in a bright cheerful colour might just be what you need to keep up your good spirit! Gloomy days get brighter with a good session and a pop of colour, so get motivated, get balanced and get your yoga on.

Fit Girls love Nike SALE

Well, chicks just love sale in general… Us Fit Girls love Nike SALE, because that’s just how we are. We’ve searched, and drooled over the nike website and finally picked out favourite pieces for a well deserved shopping haul! We deserve to spoil ourselves now and then, don’t we? 

Because we don’t want to be biased and just highlight the shoes (‘shoe love is true love’), all the girls in the office chose one item from the Nike SALE  and they are telling you why it’s the next thing on their shopping list! We probably won’t stop at just one item, but who’s to judge? Fit chicks will be fit chicks…

 

Fit Girls love Nike SALE

1.  Fitgirl Nathalie loves prints & these tights are wild! She loves them because she can mix and match them with many other items already in her closet. First choice is an oversized black top and some statement sneakers – She trains like a tiger!

Summer wear: Playsuits

Last minute vacation to Aruba. And I totally was not prepared at all. The weather has been so different that I have my winter and my summer clothes hanging together in my closet. It was only then when I realised that I do not have that much beachwear at all! 

There is this little cute store in Rotterdam called “Imagine by Kim”. I came there the day before my flight and I wanted to have something classy for a night out, something easy to wear and something for the beach. I found this amazing playsuit a.k.a. romper. I could use it for all three purposes: classy, easy to wear and also wearable on the beach! This is the first time I bought a playsuit and I kinda fell in love with it. They are so easy and the only thing you have to do is add the right accessories. Since then, I’ve been looking like crazy for more cute playsuits – here is a selection of my faves.

Shopping time!

 

Playsuit1

 

Asos

This tropical playsuit can go to any sunny destination! Wear it with your flipflops or wedgeheels. This would have been perfect in Aruba!

 

 

playsuit2

 

 

Nelly

This one is still cute in the fall or on a lazy late summer night.. I really love this one. Must. Have. It.

 

 

 

Playsuit3

Asos

Oh my, this might be my favorite. I bought one quite similar actually! This can be worn all summer long, but also afterwards when you go out for a party or drinks. Love it!

And here is mine! What do you think? I am a big fan of playsuits, the only downside to them is that you have to get half naked  if you want to go to the bathroom 😉

 

 

Fashionable Fitbit Collection by Tory Burch

Us Fit Girls, like to keep track of our progress as best as we can and there are several ways and gadgets to help us do that. There’s the Nike FuelBand, the Samsung GearFit, the Fitbit, the jawbone and so on…. Another thing they have in common, besides counting calories and telling the time is that they are plain dull and some quite …ehmm…ugly. Fortunately, there’s now a fashionable Fitbit collection by Tory Burch out on the market and it looks pretty cute! 

434439-fitbit-tory-burch-accessories

Fitbit goes fash

This is how the Fitbit wristbands looked like before Tory decided to give them a fashionable upgrade. The thing with these types of bands is that they tend to have this cheap feel to them (even though they are obviously not), they are dull and unattractive and just don’t complete the look unless you’re sweating at the gym or out for a run! Since you can essentially plug the actual measuring device from one band to another, why not give it a better look?

You guys made the sweater!

A little while ago we asked you guys which sweater we should make next. Almost all of you wanted both and hey, maybe we’ll just do that. But for now the majority of you voted for the awesome  I Am Sorry For What I Said When I was Hungry. YAY! So here it is, specially made for all you Fit Girls worldwide. Hope you’re as happy as we are! 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Fit Girl Nathalie:” I love the ‘I Am Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry’ quote. It’s totally applicable to my life since I sometimes can turn into a real hangry bitch when I’m hungry. I think many girls can relate to this. And we have some good news for you, this awesome sweater is now available in the webshop!”

 

 

Tank Top Time WIT

 

Fit Girl Anna: “I think ‘No Pants Are The Best Pants’ is the best quote ever. I love it when you get back home from work, get rid of those thight pants and just relax on your couch. That’s why this quote totally fits my lifestyle when I am home alone…I like to run around naked 🙂 ”

 

Tote Mermaid ZWART (2)

 

 

Fit Girl Bella: “I believe that ‘Reasons To Be A Mermaid: No Thigh Gap, No Pants, Free Clam Bra’ is the perfect quote, because, you know, who doesn’t want to be a mermaid and have all of those privileges? That’s why I also have the Mermaid tote in my collection of bags.

 

abs

 

Fit Girl Danique: “My favorite quote is ‘My Abs Are Like My Boyfriend, I Don’t Have A Boyfriend.’ I don’t have abs and I don’t have a boyfriend, that’s why I think this quote is hilarious. I’m working die hard on my abs though;)! And some more good news, we’re going to have this quote printed on one of our new tank tops soon!

 

Now that we have shown you our favorite quote, we would really like to know if you have one! Let us know in the comment section!

Rock your world!

Since we’ll be running on Rock & Run, we have to look rockalicious! During our run, but especially after our run when we’ll be enjoying awesome music (such as Memphis Maniacs, BL3NDER and Weslo!). But how do you transform yourself into a rockchick while you have to run and party at the same time? Well, we’ve tried to figure out something that you will hopefully like!

rock7

 

Basics

Let’s start with the basics. The best way to make you a true rocker girl is to get some basic items that you can easily transform into a rock outfit. The best way to do this is a black running pants (black = a true rock color and you can combine this color with almost everything).

 

 

 

rock3

Of course, you can’t go running without a shirt on. So what to do next? Find a shirt (well, that was kind of obvious). But what kind of shirt? We at #FITGIRLCODE are going to wear one of our #FITGIRLCODE shirts, because you have the chance to spot us and win an awesome prize.

 

 

 

rock4

 

Next step

Now that we’re done with the basics, it’s time for the next step to pimp up your running gear. When you’re done, you don’t want to change your clothes all out in the open. And you don’t have to with these tips! Find a checked blouse to get that old American look and wrap it around your waist. This will bring you one step closer to becoming a rock chick.

 

 

rock2

 

Alright, let’s move onto the shoes. You can change your shoes very easily. You don’t need a changing room, so that’s a perk. If you want some kind of tough outfit, go for some rocking boots.

 

 

rock1

That little extra

To make the look exquisite and absolutely rockalicious wear a head bandana. This will make you an ultimate rock chick (think about music videos from the 80s, all girls wear bandanas!). For tips on how to wear a bandana and do some awesome make-up (I would go for the cat eye look) check out our Pinterest page on hair & make-up!

 

 

rock8

 

Last but not least, don’t forget the bling that makes you sing! A rock chick has to have some jewelry of course, especially knuckle rings and a beautiful necklace. These awesome items will make your outfit ready to rock everybody’s socks off.

 

Are you getting down for this amazing event? Buy your tickets here and let the rock ‘n roll begin.

 

 

Shop the Thursday look

It’s Thursday, meaning that it’s almost weekend! Ok, two days to go, but still, we’re already past the half of the week. Of course the weekend means that you can finally relax a little and do things you haven’t had time for during the week, but even better, you have some time to work out. Time to shop some pretty workout gear! I have lined up some of my favorites from The Hut for you. 

10956948-1400234036-300131

 

 

Shades of Red

This running shirt from Nike has the perfect shade in between red and pink. With its flat seams you won’t get bothered by irritation or chafing – sounds good, doesn’t it? I definitely love this one!

Badass Black

This short from Nike looks pretty badass to me. And the best thing about it is that it is on SALE! Get it now while you still can so you can shine in the gym or on the tracks.

Elegantly Black

This sports bra is so cute! All my sports bras are always in the laundry basket, I really need to get some more so I won’t have this problem over and over again. This one from Lija might be the next addition to my workout wardrobe!

The good and the badass

And the lucky winner of the FRENDS giveaway is….

Emily! Congratulations Emily, you and your sister are the lucky winners of the FRENDS giveaway! We were inspired by your story and hope you’ll enjoy the headphones.  

Didn’t win? Don’t worry! There are many other headphones or earplugs! We have found some headphones that you might like as well including the FRENDS headphones of course. It might be good to know that there are several options to choose from: headphones, earphones (buds), and wireless headphones. It’s always good to find out which headphones are the more appropriate for the type of body movement you’re engaged in and which ones will feel and look better. In short, how can you chose the best ones for you?

 

ella b in ear

Not the winner? But still wanting the headphones from FRENDS? This is the Ella B in-ear headphone. Simple and beautiful.

 

dr beat

 

If your ears are really small, you can get annoyed with wearing earphones because they tend to fall out. For this reason you can try out these headphones that won’t fall off your head when you’re exercising. A plus is also that this headphone doesn’t have any wires that you can get tangled up in.

 

headphones

 

Because we are build differently, it’s very important to look for a pair of earphones that best fit our needs (and ears) and to get the best out of our music and workouts!  Since you can’t really try these things on in the store, always go for a set of earphones that includes several pairs of rubber adaptors of different sizes.

 

headphones2

 

If you feel like you need more support, you can also try these earbuds for more support if you feel like that earplugs are always falling out with other earphone models.

 

 

 

Did you find these suggestions useful? Are you a proud owner of any of these gears and have some feedback for us? What kind of head/ear phones are you currently using?

 

*We have contacted the winner

 

Fashionable to Boothstock Festival!

Do you remember when we told you that the #FITGIRLCODE crew is going to be at Boothstock festival? And that we are going to sell our awesome #FITGIRLCODE bags at Boothstock festival? And that you can buy your ticket HERE for Boothstock festival? No?  Well, now I’ve just reminded you ;).

Days before I’m leaving for a festival, I’m always thinking (probably most of the times overthinking) about what I’m going to wear. In case you have the same problem, I’ve selected some very cool items for you just in case you don’t know what to wear or if you just feel like shopping (don’t we always feel like shopping btw? ;))

 

festival1

 

Skirt

When I’m going to a festival on a very hot day, I prefer my clothes to be breezy. In this way, I’m not getting too hot. I believe this skirt is perfect for that. This flowers on the skirt give the skirt a festival kinda look.

 

 

festival2

 

Black T-shirt

I LOVE THIS SHIRT. I already asked it for my birthday. I think the text is hilarious (plus, who doesn’t love vodka?;)). This tee is also very festival like, because it’s a no sleeve, cool text, rocky shirt.

 

 

 

festival3

 

Crop top

In case you want to show off your abs that you got from our 30 day ab challenge or just want to wear a crop top because it’s fun (I don’t have abs so I usually go for the last option) you can wear this crop top with an awesome print to the Boothstock festival.

 

 

festival4

 

Sweater

During the night it can become cold. Therefore, it’s always easy to get yourself a sweater, because it will keep you warm.

 

 

 

festival5

 

Blazer

If it’s not too hot outside and you’re going to a festival, you might try out this blazer. It will keep you warm, but you still look fashionable because you’re wearing a blazer instead of a coat. AND this blazer has polkadots on it which makes it festival proof.

 

What is your favorite festival outfit? And don’t forget to buy your ticket for Boothstock festival in order to see us!

Say hello to Adidas’ Originals Orchid Collection!

Adidas has launched a small new collection: the Originals Orchid Collection. The line exists of some easy and casual clothing that is covered with orchid flowers. This touch give the clothes a feminine look. Personally, I like this collection, because I like the fact that you can combine elements of sports clothes with a casual outfit. That’s why I wanted to show you this collection of Adidas with only six items.

adidas1

 

 

In their new line Adidas has incorporated a crop top with their logo in an orchid print.I think you can combine this shirt perfectly with a high-waisted jeans. This will make it absolutely fashionable.

 

 

adidas2

 

 

 

I am a fan of shorts and especially shorts that have a special print on them. This item is my favorite item of the Originals Orchid Collection.

 

 

 

adidas4

 

 

I think this is the best example of the Adidas Originals Orchid Collection in which a sporty item has been made into something feminine without it being girly. This top still looks tough.

 

 

 

adidas3

 

 

Wouldn’t this jacket look awesome if you combine it with a black skinny jeans, some high heels (or fashionable sneakers), a white t-shirt, and a subtle necklace? I think it would look awesome!

 

 

 

adidas6

 

I don’t know why this is is the case, but I just don’t like this t-shirt. It’s kind of weird because I like the tank top. Maybe this is a little bit too much for me? Or maybe I’m just not a big fan of this type of t-shirt.

 

 

 

 

adidas5

This is the last item of the Orginals Orchid Collection and I love it! I am a huge fan of pants with prints on it and I possess many of them. This pants would be a perfect contribution to my wardrobe.

 

 

 

 

What do you think of Adidas’ Originals Orchid Collection? Yay or nay?
