My Go-To Athleisure Outfit

Even though running around with my kids (and shopping) are my only cardio right now, I still love a good athleisure outfit. Unless it’s the height of summer, you can find me in stretchy leggings and a soft, functional (but stylish) top most days of the week. Athleisure outfits have become my go-to! However, for some (unfortunate) reason I waited until now to try out clothing from Athleta, and I truly regret it! Keep reading to find out why!

Why does this athleisure outfit make me happy?

The leggings

  • These leggings allow me to move without being inhibited, which empowers me to get my sh*t done.
  • The placement of the color-blocking on the leggings is super flattering.
  • They are colorful and stylish enough to take me to the mall (or a yoga class…. #goals).
  • They come in petite, tall (I am wearing a regular, but next time, I might go for a tall!), and plus!
  • The high waist is suuuper flattering because it hits at my smallest spot and holds everything in.
  • There is a pocket in the back of the waistband!! Leggings + pockets = match made in heaven.

The long sleeve top

  • This long sleeve top is not too loose or too fitted.
  • The material is literally the softest and lightweight, so you can wear it on spring days or throughout the colder months.
  • The sleeves have thumb holes.
  • The best part: The top is the PERFECT companion to your fave leggings because it gracefully covers your rear.
