Confused Girl Capris

Confused Girl Athletic Wear

Quote of the day: “Fortune sides with him who dares.” Virgil

I am nothing if not honest in everything I do, so I have to tell you, that when Confused Girl in the City contacted me about collaborating, my initial reaction was no. Especially when I read the description that was emailed to me that the story of the founder epitomized the millennial dream. I figured this company was for younger women only.

But as soon as that thought went through my brain, I realized that I was judging them before even trying their product. And that’s exactly what I never want to do. Sure, we judge a book by it’s cover because it’s human nature. But then I hope we give it a chance and really look beyond the cover!!

So with saying that, I decided that athletic wear should work for any aged woman. Of course, you can read in Nancy’s description how Nancy didn’t agree!! And if you want your own piece of any of Confused Girl’s offerings, make sure to use the code jodie for 15% off your purchase.

Let me just give you a quick intro to Confused Girl in the City’s pieces. They are made in the USA, and each design is inspired by a different crystal and has a significant meaning. I may not know much about crystals and their meanings, but I have always loved the design of them. See if you can recognize the 2 different crystals before I tell you their names??

Jodie’s (50+ model) Outfit: We went over to the neighborhood park so I could play around on the equipment to show you how well these capri leggings move!

My t-shirt says “This girl loves her Robert,” but I was disappointed when the shirt came in the mail, because you can’t see the “Robert” well against the pink of the shirt. I had ordered this shirt online last year when I purchased my husbands shirt that says “Wake your Dreams.” I wonder if I could dye the Robert part??

So if you haven’t guessed the crystal that these capris are based on, it’s Malachite. The malachite is a stone of good fortune and abundance. It’s also said to bring productive and lucrative work into play. And don’t we all need that?

Nancy (60+ model) Outfit: I interrupted Nancy at her Pilates class at the Performax Studio in Littleton to get her photos wearing her leggings!

Here you can see Nyla Newman, the instructor, helping out Nancy with one of the exercises!!

I love that Nancy wore a grey shirt with the leggings and then my mom wore a blue top below!!

One of the issues that Nancy didn’t love was the fact that these leggings were low cut. She felt like they kept slipping down while she was wearing them. You can see in the photos on Confused Girl’s website that the leggings are meant to hit under your belly button. If this is a problem for you too, then you might consider the full length leggings with the fold over waist.

Charlotte (70+ model) Outfit: Both my mom and Nancy are wearing the same pair of capri leggings for these photos.

You’ll get a different perspective in each of their photos, since Nancy is horizontal and my mom is vertical!!

My mom works out to the Leslie Sansone DVD, “Just Walk, 5 Mega Miles”. Of course she usually does this inside her house, but I thought we’d entertain the neighbors this day, ha ha!!

As for these leggings, the crystal they are made to look like is Blue Geode. Geodes are believed to help see the ‘whole perspective’. They also alleviate stress and strengthen spirituality.

I’ll also give you my honest thoughts about my capri leggings. Personally, I didn’t notice that they were low cut. I suppose this could be due to the fact that many of my jeans are cut like this, and to me it’s normal. My mom thought they ran a little small, so if you’re interested, you might want to size up!

I hope you’ll check out Confused Girl in the City even if it’s not something you’d be particularly interested in purchasing! I figure every new business deserves a chance and even if it’s not for you, it could be a great gift!! Especially since you can get 15% off with the code, jodie! Besides they even have interesting pillows and even some jewelry!

I found some other work out gear if you’re in the market for these pieces!!

  • I love the colors & designs of these leggings. SO cool that they are inspired by crystals. Definitely a brand I would try

    • Aren’t they fun?? I have to admit that when I was wearing them, they made me way more happy than just my plain black ones!!

  • Sarah Stockley

    I really love the designs on all of these leggings. Sarah #FabFridayPost

  • Tooting Mama

    My running wardrobe could do with a revamp, I need to inject a bit of colour! These look fantastic! Thank you. #fabfridaypost

    • “They” say it helps with your performance—-color and style both!!

  • Melissa

    I need to up my workout wardrobe! You ladies look great in them, but I Nancy. I don’t like any leggings that aren’t high-waist. I feel like I need that extra support!


    • I need to up my workout wardrobe too, Mel!! I usually don’t consider fun pieces for sweating, but I do think it adds some life to my workout! Especially since we should be doing it often…haha!!
      Nancy will be glad to hear that she’s not the only one that thinks that!!

  • Love the Confused Girl pieces but as a gal on a life-long budget, I ordered the Sierra Trading Post Eddie Baur iron lace long sleeved top instead. And that, my friend, is a mouthful.

    Adorable post. You gals are such inspiration. Love the pics of playful you at the playground.

    • Well that just shows you are a smart cookies Leslie—because that’s a heck of a deal for such a neat top!! Doesn’t Sierra Trading Post have the best deals ever??

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Jodie, you gals are so fit! The pants definitely show that off! Ha, ha. I like that they are designed after crystals. Great post. – Amy

    • Thanks Amy!! I think the leggings hold us in somewhat…haha !!

  • Look at you fab and fit ladies!! Love the clothes–I need them for myself!

  • Yes love this post! The workout clothes are amazing! You go girls!

    Gemma x

  • Jodie all you girls are so darn cute! I adore this post and the playground photo made me smile big he he! See you soon gf!


  • Mother Daughter

    These are great looking leggings. I am always looking for cute ones, so I will have to take a look. But I do hate it when I have to keep pulling my leggings up, bicep exercise or not. lol

    • I totally get that Victoria!! And I’m sure it’s really what you get used to where the waist band hits!! In fact, I don’t love them high anymore, because I feel like they roll over too much when I sit down and bend!! We are funny, how we all like it differently!!

  • It’s so great that you all tried this new line – the leggings all look fab, although I empathize with Nancy’s issue! Thanks for linking up, xo


    • It’s so funny how she noticed this and I didn’t!! But at least they still look great!!

  • Laura

    I really like the print of these! It’s neat the patterns are based from crystals!

  • Great leggings! I especially love the blue ones 🙂
    Thanks for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost

  • Susie Weaver

    Love that each pair of leggings are inspired by a certain type of crystal – that’s unique. Also love that you have 3 different models of all different ages to show that anyone can wear them. Go girls! #FabFridayLinky

  • First, kuddos to your mom! She is more athletic than I am!! And she looks amazing in these leggings. I love the way she paired them. They look amazing with her gray T-shirt. How often does she do pillates? I would love to try reformers once as well!
    Big hugs to all three of you.

    • Thanks Miri!!
      Nancy goes to pilates usually twice a week!! I’m very proud of her, because it’s certainly not easy!!

  • Judy Gramith

    I really love seeing Nancy and Charlotte in these leggings. I kinda figured it might be a bit outside the box for those two. You all look absolutely darling and fit too! I really like the look of precious stones in these leggings!
    I wear these kinds of leggings all the time. The capri length is for warm weather and full length for cooler temps. My workouts entail resistance bands, stationary bike and speed walking on my tread mill at home. I do Yoga and Zumba at gyms and our community center. I like to wear a legging outfit whether I’m going out or staying home. I think looking good makes the workout more fun !!
    Please tell Nancy and Charlotte that pulling them back up repeatedly is just part of the deal with a waistband that ends just below the navel. Consider it a biceps exercise… 🙂
    Jodie, you might try outlining ROBERT on your t-shirt with a Sharpie so it’ll show up more…

    • That really made me laugh when I read it, Jude!! Consider it a bicep exercise is the way to look at it with a positive perspective!! Just my kind of thinking!!
      And that’s exactly what I’ll try with my t-shirt. Sharpies are waterproof, right? It worked great on my denim jacket, that’s for sure!!!

  • Sarah M


    Amazing pics !


  • I love all the outfits!

    Have a lovely day!

  • Christina Makri

    You are gorgeous girls all of you!!!

  • Wow! I love your athletic wear ladies! =)

    These are some great workout clothes! Makes working out more bearable! x

    • Now I just need to get back to working out more…ha ha!!
      Thanks Jacqueline!!

  • Girl, I was a little confused when I saw your photo collage. Nancy and your mom are working out and you are standing by a slide! I thought, that’s my kind of work out too! lol But then I read the rest of your post… 😉 Cute and different workout gear, for sure!

  • Shoot! I should’ve read this post earlier today! I just ordered a new pair of workout capris this morning, but they weren’t nearly as much fun as the ones you ladies are wearing. I’ll have to give this collection a look-see! Maybe I’ll be ordering two pairs of workout leggings by the end of the day… haha. Hope you have a great weekend, Jodie!

    • These designs are really fun, Lindsey!! Maybe they will get me to workout more often??
      Ha ha

  • What a cool athletic collection! These leggings are fantastic. So glad you decided to do this collaboration.

  • Nicole Mölders

    This workout looks are chic. I am admiring that you can climb up that wall!

    • Thanks Nicole!!
      Wall climbing is really big here in Denver!!

  • Jocelyn (@ReadingRes)

    They look so colourful and comfortable. I do like that you gave them a try despite being initially unsure, too x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    • Thanks Jocelyn!!
      It’s nice to have good looking work out wear!!

  • These look like great work out capris. Fun pattern and everyone seems unrestricted. It was fun seeing your pictures, because I think I can totally see how you looked as a little girl! You have that little pigtail on your head and like a little curly-Q running around on the playground! Funny!

    • You’re funny, Julia!! Wanna hear the hilarious part?? I actually used to have those “Buffy” curls as a kid….and when we cut them off, my mom put them in a shadow box. She still has them in her hallway—crazy, right??

  • I love the pieces you all got. The prints are just so fun! Plus it’s fun to see you all in something totally different!

  • rainbowsR2beautiful

    I quite like the patterns on the leggings. It’s not something I usually wear as I’m a fan of pockets. #wotw

    • Thanks!!
      I love my pockets too—but I have to admit when I’m working out, I never thought about having pockets on those items…

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    I LOVE these Jodie, I especially love the green ones you are sporting! All of you look great in them. YOu probably have already guessed this is my uniform. Throwing a pair on now as I head to yoga! Will check Confused Girl soon!

    • That’s because you are in great shape, Terri!!
      Have fun at yoga!!

  • Karen

    Cute clothes, really. I like the fact that they are capris because my workout wear is either shorts or long leggings. I have no capris and really do need some. I’ll check out the site. I am a die hard Leslie Sansone fan, have SO many of her DVDs so I can switch them up, but it is the only reason that I stay in shape since I have a weakness for snacks! Just love her positive outlook and encouragement, love everything about those DVDs. Good for your mom! A fellow walker! I don’t get the whole crystal thing, but whatever, the clothes are cute and it’s their thing, so good for them! I’m going to check it out!

    • The funny thing, is when we took the photos for Tenaz shirts, Nancy said to me that she needed capri leggings because she didn’t have any!!
      That’s one of the reasons, I thought these might be perfect for us!!
      When I went to Nancy’s pilates to take the photos—all the women were saying how much they liked the print on them—they are fun!!

  • Wow! You all look fantastic!

  • Miriam Zakharova

    I really love your leggins!
