The Art of Athleisure

I’ve talked about my love for athleisure style a ton on the blog. It’s one of my go-to styles and I wear it even more now that I’m a busy mom. I’ve also shared my tips on how to achieve athleisure style, like wearing well fitted pieces, tailored coats and jackets, and elevated sneakers. But, IMO, I believe the art of athleisure style begins with mixing high and low pieces. There’s something about mixing the ease of workout wear – leggings, pullovers, and sneakers – with high end pieces like a statement bag or sunglasses. There’s a variety of ways you can achieve this, but I love keeping my outfit budget-friendly and topping it off with a designer bag. I’m also a big sneaker junkie, so a new pair of sneakers can complete your outfit as well!

While I know spring is probably not around the corner for us in the PNW,  I’m excited for slightly warmer temps in the months ahead. Right now, it’s too cold for sneakers and ankles out, but I can’t wait to start wearing more athleisure pieces soon. This Nike pullover is SO good – comfortable and chic. I also just snagged another pair of petite-friendly leggings. These are great for my workouts, but also comfortable enough to run around in as well (love the high waist and zipper details).
