Now that we’re a month into the year, two themes are emerging for me already. The first is that it’s not selfish to put yourself first. I’ve really been practicing taking care of myself and it’s making me an all-around better person, which allows me to be better for everyone else. (Win/win!) And the second is that I really, really like to dress comfortably.
Even when I’m getting dressed up, I like to feel great. I refuse to wear anything that pinches or itches; even with shoes, there’s only so much pain I can tolerate nowadays.
One thing I’ve embraced in terms of comfort? Athleisure. I semi-joke that it’s suburban mom uniform, but I swear it’s so comfortable. I do wear this to the gym and for outdoor activities… and for just everyday running around.
While I love navy, I have been pretty into black lately. I normally swap my navys for blacks in the winter, but I imagine I’m going to be wearing a lot of black on black throughout the year.
I do have to praise these leggings. Back in September, I was heading to the beach for Labor Day. I packed lots of summery things and it turned out to be a very chilly and rainy weekend. Knowing my seersucker dress wasn’t going to cut it, I popped into an Athleta on my way to the beach to pick up a few things for a cozy weekend indoors. I bought these leggings and they are amazing. They fit great (I’m normally a small in yoga pants but went with an XS in these) and hit at the perfect spot. I usually get capris because tights are too long for me, but these still show a little ankle. 🙌🏻
These are also good sneaks for running around. I hate the feeling of socks and these feel great without.
I ran a 5k in December. It was freezing and I went back to the Athleta store for some help. My friend who is an avid runner sent me a list of things that I should look for and the Athleta saleswoman helped me find it all! I’m so glad I bought this pullover. Not just for the race, but for everyday wear too.
Anyone else into athleisure? I can’t seem to get enough of it.
PS I found a similar quarter zip that’s under $20! Can’t beat that.
