The perfect working around the house, running errands, walking with a friend, playing at the park, or carpooling the kids kinda outfit. Add a full tuck for a little more structure and an oversized tote to carry all the things and add a bit of whimsy.
Raise your hand if you think the athliesure trend is the best thing to happen to motherhood?! (MEEEEE!!!) Linked everything and lots of options below!
Wearing a 6 in the shorts and small in the tee. Sneakers are the Air Force 1 “by you” custom option and a great way to get around waiting for dunks or Jordans while still getting the colors and look you want! Also been loving the Adidas, too. All linked above!
And PSA (!!!) just discovered a new (to me) active wear line called Adanola and it’s so, so good and about half the price of Lulu gear. Leggings are $58 and amazing quality. For reference (if you’re curious) I ordered medium in their bike shorts and this tank bra (so good and fit great) and medium in sweatshorts and sweatshirt (will prob do a small next time). Linked some of their shorts above and will be sharing more about their stuff soon. In the meantime, let me know if you have questions!
The key to feeling cute instead of frumpy in athliesure (imo!) is making it look like you got dressed on purpose instead of like you just rolled out of bed. Which I am certainly not above and do more often than I like to admit (just ask my friends and neighbors… lucky them, lol). However, just like most things in life, a little intention and effort goes a long way in setting the tone and momentum for our day! Do you agree?
A few intentional styling tips for athletic wear: try a monochromatic look (elevated everything), play around with how your shirt is tucked, drape a sweatshirt over your shoulders or at a diagonal, add accessories (hat, cute bag, socks, jewelry), layer with a more structured top or jacket (denim or button down shirt), do your hair and/or makeup!
What would you add!?
