Athleisure is indeed a fantastic choice for busy moms like yourself! Its combination of comfort, versatility, and style makes it perfect for keeping up with the demands of a busy lifestyle while still looking great. Here are some tips to help you make the most out of your athleisure wardrobe:

  1. Invest in Quality Pieces: Look for high-quality athleisure items that will withstand frequent wear and washing. Quality fabrics like moisture-wicking materials and durable stitching can ensure your clothes last longer.
  2. Mix and Match: Athleisure pieces are designed to be versatile, so don’t be afraid to mix and match different items to create various outfits. Pair leggings with a cozy sweatshirt for a casual look, or dress up joggers with a stylish top and sneakers.
  3. Layering: Layering is key to creating stylish athleisure outfits. Add interest to your look by layering a sports bra under a sheer tank or a bomber jacket over a sports bra and leggings.
  4. Accessorize: Accessories can elevate any athleisure outfit. Add a statement necklace, a stylish watch, or a baseball cap to add a personal touch to your look.
  5. Choose Flattering Silhouettes: Look for athleisure pieces that flatter your body type. High-waisted leggings can provide support and shape, while oversized tops can offer comfort and style.
  6. Don’t Forget About Comfort: While style is important, comfort should always be a priority, especially for busy moms. Choose athleisure pieces that allow you to move freely and comfortably throughout your day.
  7. Incorporate Trendy Elements: Stay up-to-date with the latest athleisure trends by incorporating trendy elements into your outfits. Whether it’s bold colors, graphic prints, or unique textures, don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles.
  8. Invest in Supportive Footwear: Since you’re constantly on the go, invest in supportive and stylish footwear that can keep up with your busy lifestyle. Sneakers are a popular choice for athleisure outfits, offering both comfort and style.

By following these tips, you can create stylish and functional athleisure outfits that are perfect for your busy life as a mom of five. See more activewear looks and ways to stay active HERE. More Varley looks here.

There’s nothing I like more than an all-white workout outfit. And nothing motivates me more to workout than a new outfit. Thank you Nordstrom for the awesome selection of activewear! This all-white workout outfit is super comfy and perfect for tennis with the kids (who have just started lessons), and a quick run. I love that Nordstrom makes returns so easy – so I’m able to order multiple sizes to try and return what doesn’t fit without leaving my house. What inspires you to workout? My piano teacher growing up once told me a nugget of truth I’ll never forget: “to begin, is to be half done.” While it’s not completely true, it sure motivates me to start. And sometimes that little push is all I need to hit the pavement.
