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.

Sambas I got my true size // Hi Rise Leggings in small // Vine pullover (I wear a small) // Quilted Jacket ( wear a small) // Twill Hat // Lasson belt bag in coffee // Sunglasses on sale!

These four pieces you need in your closet now

1. I’m loving this quilted jacket with plenty of pockets and a nice drawstring waist. I got a small.

2. These leggings are high rise and holds you in and flatters your shape. I wear a small, it fits tts.

3. The vine pullover is the pullover of all pullovers. It is oversized yet chic. It is practical, yet extravagant. I wear a small.

4. If you’re headed anywhere and need an extra hand, don’t leave home without the LASSON belt bag. It is practical and comes in 4 colors. Did I mention it has an exterior zippered pocket? As a mom of 5, it works!

Which is your favorite?

No one does luxe layers like Varley. I’ve been wearing Varley for a couple years, and have always loved their workout looks from chic sports bras, to incredibly chic fleeces. They continue to innovate luxury layers that I cannot seem to live without. As we’re in between houses, I made sure to include my favorite Varley track pants and coordinating zip ups in my “only the essentials” duffle. I’ve been living in their joggers and zip ups here in Florida. Afterall, cozy clothes don’t have to be frumpy. Move over crop leggings, meet the joggers, knit zip up and jacket of dreams. Tell me your favorites and shop them all below.

Start somewhere. They say it takes two weeks to create good habits. I recently got back into running. So hard. But beyond the benefits to the body, I started to see other benefits  – clearer thinking and better sleep.

2. Run to a fun destination. I’m a bored runner so I need music and a destination. I found I run better knowing I have a destination.

3. Add wall sits to your run. Warning, they’re killer! What are they? Lean up against a wall with your feet shoulder width apart and knees are bent at 45 degrees. Hold them for 30-60 seconds. Work your way up to 10 sets. Switch it up. Maybe try jump roping next week. Stay fresh.

4. Add new workout gear. This is probably the most fun part of working out for me. Changing it up with fresh gear like this top and bottom from VARLEY are definitely a game changer. Whatever works to keep you healthy and motivated is the key.

Good Luck! What are your tips to staying motivated?
