I know. I know. It's the stereotypical mom comment, right? “I just don't have time to get all dressed up. Plus, I'm running around after my kid all day.” I may have a style blog, but let me tell you…..AMEN. The reality is, I love cute heels and dresses as much as the next girl…..but are they the right thing to wear to the park? Not really. I've struggled with finding cute clothes that are actually functional for days with Lydia.
Enter the new athleisure trend. It has mamas everywhere singing it's praises. You mean I can actually wear joggers? And it's trendy? What a win, right? A few simple tips for rocking the athleisure trend and not looking like a slob:
- color coordinate: this is still an OUTFIT…..so basic neutrals? Brights? You should look like you picked these pieces to go together, and that you didn't just grab yoga pants off the floor.
- accessories: jewelry and a scarf add a lot to a simple athleisure outfit……they make it look pulled together and casual instead of sloppy
- don't wear your ACTUAL running shoes: my running shoes that I use for working out are dirty. So I picked up a separate pair of sneakers to wear for casual days. Bonus? Lydia's obsessed with matching items and she loves that our shoes are similar!
