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.

Here’s a sneak peek of the “athleisure” pieces I’ve been loving lately, I mean, how great is this mesh top? What’s better than mixing an everyday trench coat with a mesh workout top and leggings? So fun and secretly, soooo comfy.

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?
