Hiking Rimrock Trail in Ideology

Posted on 2 m read

***Special thanks to Macy’s & Ideology for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

Even though I’ve been getting better at staying active, the desert scorch has greatly deterred me from going out hiking. I usually just go to the gym to get my daily exercise in. Recently though, I had the urge for something different. So, I decided to finally wake up early and brave the heat to check out the hiking trail close to our home, Rimrock Trail! Here in Palm Springs, if you want to hike in the summer, it’s best to be out the door by 6 AM at the latest. This way, you won’t have to worry about heat exhaustion… at least for the earlier part of your hike.

Wearing comfortable fitness attire is a must when it’s this hot out. You want something that’s breathable, yet allows for mobility… and if you’re like me, stylish! A cute workout set is always motivation to push harder, right? Honestly since moving here, I’ve been living in all sorts of activewear.

One of my newest sets comes from Ideology’s “Life on the Go” capsule, exclusively available at Macy’s. I’ve shared several of my favorite fitness outfits from the Ideology line here on the blog and on Instagram. So, if you’re a returning visitor, it’s no surprise that I absolutely LOVE this brand. Not only does Ideology offer a wonderful selection of activewear, it also has plenty of loungewear perfect for bumming around at home. To top it off, everything is reasonably priced. Comfortable, stylish, and doesn’t break the bank? Count me in!

This neon pink sports bra gives the perfect splash of color to every workout and I love the strappy back detail. The complementing leggings are surprisingly super comfortable to wear even in 90+ degree weather. They’re pretty lightweight and snug around my lower body. Needless to say, I can’t get over how flattering they are! For sizing reference, I’m wearing an XS for the sports bra, top, and bottom.

    Hi Sharon! The pop of color is just so beautiful on your skin tone! I have seen this brand at Macy’s before and now I am dying to experience it first hand and try one some sweet stylish athletic wear! I love that you mentioned it is affordable so, it may be possible I could leave or a few pieces in my shopping bag!?!

    I haven’t heard of this brand but thanks for introducing me to it. I am always looking for new and cute fitness wear to inspire me to workout more. =). These leggings looks amazing especially from the butt area (which is crucial) and I like the side designs on the legs. It’s great to know that these are breathable and affordable which are always important things to look for in fitness wear. You look amazing and I love that you are getting exercise into your daily routine. Not that you need it at all but more for health reasons. Rimrock Trail looks so beautiful and I am sure the scenery is amazing. 6AM is so early babe! Good for you! xoxo, Christine

    You look amazing in this set Sharon! I agree, the fabric has to breathe and fit just right. I hate if activewear is too tight, that makes me feel so unmotivated. This hike looked so good as well! I wish it weren’t so cold here, I should make the most of the next sunny weekend and get out for a big walk.
