PA Gal designs ActiveWear

Because I write a Fashion Column for a newspaper, I am introduced to different brands and designers. I really like when those brands and designers are fitness related because then I can share what I've learned here on the blog with you all.

Earlier this summer I was introduced to Katie Kozloff who is the founder of Katie K Activewear, which you may have heard of.  I was first connected with her because she is from Pennsylvania. During the interview process with Katie, I had found out that she had read my column and had even visited our blog a few times. She said that she really enjoyed how fitness minded I was and that I would be a great fit for her ambassador program and sent me an application to apply.

I admit, I was both flattered and a bit taken back. First of all, I make a point to only become an ambassador for products that I already use and know that I enjoy. Second of all, I admit I had some pre-conceived notions of the Katie K brand. I have seen some other bloggers talk about it on social media and to be honest, I didn't think her clothing came in my size. Boy was I WRONG!

Yes, Katie K Activewear might best be known for it's generous size range (ranging up to a size 3XL Plus), but that does not take away from the fact that it has sizes such as smalls and extra smalls too.   This was something that I did not know until I started shopping on the site. What a beautiful  collection that Katie K has.   Katie generously sent me some of the collection to try and I agreed to be an ambassador for a fellow PA gal to help promote her line. I think it was a perfect fit.

Signature Burnout tank in Vivid Blue Zebra Print:  I love how light weight this tank is. It's pretty sheer so I always wear a black sports bra underneath. When I wear it to the gym I wear a cami under it.  You can see in the first picture above that this shirt has little toggles on the side. This is a nice touch but I could see how this could annoy someone as they ran or worked out. Over all its a nice shirt and actually looks better on your body than it does on my mannequin.

Signature Tunic Tee in Coral: I love this tunic but to be honest, I wouldn't run in it. It's a little heavier than what I would normally wear to run but I'm just taking that as a sign of good quality. I love that this is a piece of active wear that I could actually dress up if I wanted to. I could wear this with yoga pants or leggings to the gym and still feel put together enough to go run errands afterwards. (Oh who am I kidding, I've run errands before looking like a sweaty mess)

Signature Urban Capri: There is so much to love about these signature capris. I love that they are so soft but my favorite thing is the pocket. Anytime I have a hidden pocket in my workout wear I get excited!

Although I do get paid to write my fashion column, I was not compensated to write this blog post. I just wanted to share because Katie is a PA gal and I wanted to help promote her products.


  1. I've never heard of this line looks super cute and comfy!

  2. I like that blue tank, it seems really pretty! I recently got a work out shirt with a similar toggle and I couldn't wear it running but I'm really happy with it at yoga or body pump.

  3. What a great opportunity for you! So great you're supporting a fellow PA gal :) Love the pieces!

  4. Cute outfits! I'll have to look into her clothing line once I'm back in normal clothing again! Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I haven't heard of this brand. I look forward to checking it out, especially because she's from PA. I love that first burnout tank! Awesome that you are an ambassador!

  6. I love pants with those little pockets - they come in handy!
    I also love a product that caters to plus sizes. So many are making XL that are really like a small medium... boo!

  7. I haven't heard of this! Thanks! Also, you can't have enough pockets, especially for a long race!

  8. Nice opportunity and cute clothes! funny how we get preconceived notions from other posts- some good some bad!

  9. I am a big fan of any kind of active wear that I could wear somewhere other than the gym too. As pretty much all my clothes are gym clothes now.

  10. Love that turquoise tank top - it looks super comfortable and chic. What a cool job to have to write a fashion column!!! You must get to see the coolest designs!
