My name is Paula and I am looking for colorful workout gear to go with this shirt. I've been trying to find Capri length workout pants that fall in between gets-in-the-way-baggy and was-this-painted-on-her-tight. That itself is hard to find, add that to my desire for fun colors/prints and I am about ready to give up. I can find colorful shoes, tops, hair bands and booty shorts, but it seems the conservative bottoms only come in black or grey.
I'm currently onboard a deployed Navy vessel where I do not get many chances to show off my personal style, which is colorful and bright. Any help you can provide would be incredible. Of course when the other ladies ask where I found my gear, I will sing your praises!
I'm 5'2", size 10-12 depending on how the sizes run, I have thick thighs and a large booty, my maximum budget would be $100 but I am hoping for the $45-$65 range, my favorite colors are: sparkle, pink, purple, green, blue and no print is too wild.
Thank you for your consideration.

Just an FYI, Paula, when you said your favorite color was "sparkle", you became all of the OB editors' best friend. You're totally one of us! I've got the thighs-n-booty thing going on myself, and I find the easiest way to avoid the painted-on look is to order 1 size up. that way, the pants fit comfortably around your waist/hips/thighs, but won't be too tight - or falling off of you. Enjoy!
