We live in a world where leggings are perfectly acceptable for so many occasions now! The athleisure trend is not going anywhere – and seems to actually be gaining even more traction with so many lines offering super cute pieces that go from gym style to street style seamlessly. Let’s face it – so many of us grab for leggings even when a workout is the furthest things from our minds. But it’s nice to have that option to be comfortable running around after our little ones in stylish leggings & workout wear that pulls double duty as a momlife outfit.
There are a few ways to elevate that gym style to street style. One way is to add a layer, like this oversized denim jacket! I bought this one on a whim – at Target no less – and I have been grabbing for it constantly. I feel like the oversized look is on trend and I love the longer length on this one – covers the behind a bit more.
Another way is to switch to a non-workout sneaker — and these sneaks have been an amazing purchase. I posted about them on my IG when I bought them because I was having an internal battle about buying a pair of Dr. Scholls shoes. It made me feel old to purchase that brand – but I don’t care now…they are a dream to walk in, or run after little people in. They didn’t require any breaking in and I love the neutral gray color. I also love the thicker platform on them, gives a short girl a little height!
For spring & summer, I absolutely love ditching the dark leggings and opting for lighter hues. I have been obsessed with these creamy hued Athleta camo leggings since I first saw them. Athleta leggings seem to just fit my body really well and I keep adding to my collection – I love how silky & comfortable they are, yet they still hold ya in if you know what I mean. 🙂
