#FashionFriday: 3 Favorite Motivational Tanks

Sometimes, you need a pick-me-up. That pick-me-up can come in many forms: coffee, chocolate, a long run, hugs, laughter, you name it. I love all of those things, but sometimes I like to wear my pick-me-up. They say that “clothes make the man,” and I believe that “clothes make the mood.” What you’re wearing can transform how you feel on the inside. When you feel sick and are in your laziest pajama bottoms and ugly college sweatshirt, you generally don’t feel so hot. Because you also don’t look so hot. Just by putting on something that makes you feel good about how you look, can transform how you feel.

A simple shirt change can truly brighten your day!

I love to choose clothes to help enhance my mood or make me feel more positive. Especially if I am in need of a pick-me-up and about to practice yoga or head for a long run. That being said, I love the current trend of motivational shirts and tank-tops. Not only do I wear something that has me feeling great, but the messaging also helps convince my MIND to feel great. And maybe, just maybe, someone else will read the writing on my top and feel a little happier as a result!

Here are my current three favorite motivational tanks:

1) INNER FIRE “Intention Seeker” Tank ($29.95)

Here’s an up-close view of the tank-top! (And part of my cheeky grin):

Yes, I am an INTENTION seeker, and I’m not afraid to shout it from the roof tops!! πŸ˜€

2) Shine Athletica “Love” Tank ($22.99)

I own this top in the gray, but I am in “LOVE” with the pink version! I think wearing some #PassLove on your back is a great way to make you smile, feel happy, and jump into to your day. What do you think?

Top is $22.99 from Shine Athletica, but you can save 15% on your own top with code “ShineOn” on over at the etsy site.

3) Lorna Jane “Never Never Never Give Up” Tanks (prices vary)

This Lorna Jane tank is currently out of stock, but I truly dig this similar top, available in white and green. Lorna Jane’s motto is “Never Never Never Give Up” and, therefore, they add new tops with this messaging all the time! In fact they currently have a promo wherin if you spend $200 you get free shipping and a free “Never Never Never Give Up” tank. Use code “NEVERGIVEUP” at checkout.

What are your favorite motivational tank tops? Do you feel happier and more inspired when wearing a positive message?

As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
