- Leather Jacket (old) link similar draped style HERE
One thing I have learned since having Xavier is that I need more “mom on the go” pieces or AKA “yoga pants” in my life lol. I’m sorry, but most times jeans are the last thing I want to throw on these days. So I started purchasing yoga pants or workout leggings like a mad woman the past few months. They are much more comfortable and I can move around easily and freely in them too. I’m usually carrying around a car seat or lifting a stroller so leggings fit the bill when comfort is key.
Now just because I am wearing leggings on most days doesn’t mean I am sacrificing my style. This is where the term “athleisure” comes into play. Athleisure basically means “clothing designed for workouts and other athletic activities is worn in other settings, such as at the workplace, at school, or at other casual or social occasions,” as defined by Wikipedia lol. I love to style my athleisure wear with cool layering pieces like a leather or denim jacket, super cute sneakers or slides and puffer vests. Yes, you can look stylish in chic in yoga pants people. Who knew?
Forever 21 has some amazing leggings that I fell in love with recently. In fact, the leggings you see here are Forever 21. Also, check out Marshall’s and TJ Maxx too!! I’ve scored some super cute yoga pants on clearance for about $12. And when I say they are comfortable, I mean it!
Are you into the athleisure wear trend? I am definitely here for it. In fact, being a mom on the go with a baby and toddler is opening my mind to expanding my wardrobe. I’ve even purchased more gym shoes or sneakers as some like to call it lately. Could I, lover of heels and a good flat, turn into a sneaker head? Stay tuned!
