It’s time to start breaking out those summer dresses ladies! Floral prints are back in action.

But until it starts to feel like summer, you might want to keep rocking the tights. Grab a pair of compression tights to avoid having tired legs by the end of the day. They are perfect for wearing day or night. The soft microfiber fabric keeps your legs warm in the winter and cool in the summer, making these tights the perfect go-to item for any season.

Girl On The Go

Looking and feeling your best when you travel is essential. During the cold months, if your destination isn't all that warm and sunny, then throw on your favorite boots and leather jacket. Going on vacation or taking a trip for work is fun and exciting, so make sure to dress the part. After all, you never know who you might run into!

The first and most important travel tip to follow is to plan ahead! Make sure you check the weather ahead of time to bring the right clothes and shoes. Always pack extras of your essential items, like socks! Just remember not to go overboard or you might find yourself paying extra to get your overly-packed suitcase on the plane. Do some research about where you are going to plan out where you want to go, places to eat and so on.

Take out some extra money just in case something goes missing or you see something that you just can't live without. Remember to be friendly and don't shy away from asking questions. If you take a cab, ask the driver what their favorite hangouts are or what restaurant they would suggest for dinner. Try to be open to new experiences because you may never get the opportunity again. Last but not least, don't forget a camera!! Even if you're not super thrilled about your destination, you never know when you'll catch a breathtaking sunset.

Whether you are hopping on a plane or sitting in a dreadfully long car ride, make sure you bring a pair of compression socks! When you sit or stand for a long time, your legs start to ache and cramp. When you wear a pair of compression socks that provide 15-20mmHg of gradient compression, it helps to improve circulation, energize your legs, prevent swelling and reduce fatigue. The featured socks are made by Sockwell and are available in four different colors. Wear them to work, while traveling or at the gym.

These socks are durable and great for exercise, making them even more comfortable for everyday use. Now you can travel in comfort and style with Sockwell.

No matter what outfit you wear, you can find what you need to keep your legs energized. Choose from compression leggings, tights, thigh highs or socks in a variety of colors and patterns to stay comfortable where ever your travels may take you.

Ladies, now is the time to get back in the gym and kick butt! First things first - clean up your diet. You can run for miles and miles, but if you sit in front of the T.V. mindlessly eating afterward, you're not going to see much of a difference. Eating foods like avocados, nuts, berries and low-carb string cheese are great snacks that take the edge off without packing on the pounds. When you are consuming the right foods, your body has more energy and you are more likely to make it to the gym.

When you're starting out, think about what your goals are. Weight loss, toning, strengthening your muscles or training for competitions, etc. It is extremely important to be realistic about what you can achieve in the given time period, so you don't get discouraged. Designate how many times a week you want to go to the gym and try and stick to it. Don't beat yourself up if you can't make it one day, just make up for it another day or do some exercises from home. No matter what pace you take getting back in shape, you are always further ahead than the people on the couch.

Need some motivation to get started? Get yourself some cute gym clothes! What better way to look and feel your best than with a great gym wardrobe? The most essential item to have is a pair of compression socks or sleeves. Grab a pair of Sigvaris Compression Calf Sleeves to enhance performance and to prevent injuries like shin splints and leg cramps. Most important? Wearing compression sleeves or socks after a workout speeds up your recovery time so you can get back out there in no time. Featuring 20-30 mmHg of graduated compression from the ankle to the knee, these sleeves increase circulation and improve blood flow. They are perfect for working out, training for marathons or triathlons, and also for running long distances. Compression sleeves and socks are vital to keeping your legs healthy and energized, especially when you are first starting out.

It is important to work in cardio and weight lifting each week. There should be a balance between the two based on how often and how long you work out and for. If you only go a couple of times a week, you should consider doing a total body workout each time. This is where you hit all of your muscle groups in one session, and if you have time, add in about 20 minutes of cardio after. If you plan on going 3-5 times a week or more, you should try dedicating each day to targeting specific muscle groups. For example, spend one day focusing just on your legs, and another only doing back and tricep exercises to work the muscles more thoroughly. If you want to tone your body, the best way to do so is through resistance training. Grab a pair of resistance bands and try some of these exercises.

Check out these customized workouts by Women's Health Magazine that are based on your specific body type. Make sure you listen to your body. Try keeping a food and exercise log to see your progress. This helps to catch patterns that may be preventing you from reaching your goals faster. No matter what kind of exercise you do, the most important part is that you're out there trying. Don't give up!! Remember, the real workout begins when you're so tired that you want to quit.
