Stuff i wear, like OR recommend

This is a catch-all list of running, lifting, personal, clothing, or other items I am asked about often.


My amazon storefront

  • On here you will find links to running, lifting, nutrition, books, etc that I recommend or personally use.


Unlike many ‘influencers’ I do not buy thing often enough to be able to link everything or specific styles. I try to buy staple items and re-wear them often. So I do not have a like it to know it or similar. However, you can find a lot of styles similar to how I dress from these brands.


  • Everyday clothing: American Eagle, Aerie, Roolee, Bohem, Loft, Madewell, Target, The reset, H&M, outdoor brands (prana, toad & co, outdoor voices, Patagonia etc).
  • Professional / nicer casual work wear: Madewell, the reset, jcrew, Bananna Republic
  • Places I buy most of my jewelry: Target, Amercian Eagle, madwell.

  • My glasses are from target, they are coach.

      • ‘#5440 Blk amber gltr vasity strip’
        • They are prescription

    • “Jeans & shorts for short girls with big legs”: Madwell, Abercrombie, Jcrew, Loft.

      • Just get pants in SHORT and your actual size & they will fit your butt 😉
        • This may mean size up sorry!!! Wear a belt too! (I get belts at target, American Eagle or Madwell)

    ATHLETIC CLOTHING ITEMS (running specific but I also wear to lift): 

    • Many of my running items are paragon; I share their upcoming launches in my stories on Instagram regularly. Code LITTLELYSS saves you.
    • Fabletics: Shopping with this link will  get you 2/$24 leggings and support me.
      • Transparently I do not shop here as much anymore since working with paragon more (I just don’t need that much stuff!), but I still love a lot of their leggings. They also have extended sizing and solid items if you are looking for them. 

    What I recommend from fabletics:

    • I am a medium in all items

    • These are not specific brands, I have random ones I’ve purchased while traveling but a few from REI. I don’t use a special athletic bandana just any one I can get / use so if you want cute ones just buy cute brands.



    I am asked this so often I made an amazon page with ‘suggestions’ based on fabric — not personal trial/use.

    • Seamless will be best under leggings or spandex.
    • Don’t buy bright colors if you want them to not show through thinner fabrics.
    • There is no ‘best’ underwear but athletic our outdoor brands will be more friendly to sweat and activity.
    • JUST NOT COTTON! (google why if you don’t know)







    • Jaybird vista’s
    • Apple airpods 
    • Shokz head phones 



    I’m universally a medium

    • I mostly now lift in shorts released in Paragon collections (see IG stories for launch updates, reviews and details)
    • I also like Fleo shorts 
    • The Fleo I have are the “high rise 3.25” 


    I’m universally a medium

    • El Toro 25′ Fleo leggings I was gifted & like
    • Vuori (see above)
    • Fabletics leggings (see above)
    • Paragon naked are great for lifestyle leggings, performance fabrics are reviewed in my stories during launches.

    Belt & Grips

    • Some random lifting straps from Amazon (shop my amazon storefront)
