This post brought to you by The North Face . The content and opinions expressed below are that of Mostly Morgan. Working out has always been such an important part of my life – I started running regularly when I joined my middle school cross country team, and from there I learned what an amazing stress reliever exercise is. Today I use my workouts as an escape and a time to clear my head from the stresses of college. As amazing as exercise is, nothing ruins my workout quicker than the wrong outfit.

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Pom and Millennial Blogs. As always, all opinions are my own.
