Athleisure for the Win!

August 2, 2017

A lot of days I ponder why I even bother to get dressed because I take off my pajamas and put on athleisure…which let’s be real…is basically pajamas that are acceptable to wear in public.   But, hey, I’m not complaining that I can go to Target in my workout gear and no one even blinks an eye.  It’s become the norm to see people in spandex, whether they actually went to the gym that day or not.  And, because it’s pretty mainstream to be walking around in your yoga pants, athleisure has upped their game and come out with some really cute things!  The pants are super comfy.  The shirts are thin and soft.  The sports bras are cute with lots of details to make them pretty.  Things you don’t want to take off for any reason other than to get back into your pajamas.

If you haven’t snagged a pair of Zella leggings from the Nordstrom sale yet, then what in the heck are you waiting for?  Girl, I’m telling you, you’re gonna love them!  My faves are the live-in leggings and they are high waisted, so they help a mama out, if you know what I mean.  I also lurve these motto leggings!

The shirt is a recent purchase from Gap.  It’s their GapFit Breathe fabric, which is uber soft and lightweight.  You can wear this with the tails down, or I like to tie them in a knot. Oh, and did I mention it has thumbholes!  I don’t know what it is about thumbholes, but I love them!  Just don’t forget to pull up your sleeves when you go to change a diaper.  #learnedthehardway  If you’re brave, this shirt would be super cute with a lace bralette or strappy sports bra peeking out!  I opted for a cami, but a bralette would definitely spice it up!

My tennies are oldies but goodies.  I don’t wear these to workout, but they are great for running errands or just playing outside with the boys.  I’m sure they would be fine to wear for a run because sometimes after a day of running errands, it feels like I have run a marathon!  They are very comfy and keep my feet from getting tired, even after chasing little ones all day.  And, they are currently on sale for less than $49!

And, my hat…well, if you have followed me on Instagram or Facebook, then you have already seen this multiple times.  It’s pretty much a staple on days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair (and on days I haven’t managed to squeeze in a shower).

What’s you’re favorite athleisure item to wear?
