Have you ever asked yourself, what is athleisure? It’s a new word that has been kicked around now for the past several years. Athleisure is a style of dressing which addresses the modern dilemma of needing to look appropriate when running from the gym, to the supermarket, to a meeting at a coffee shop, and then off to your child’s school to start taxiing he or she around for activities.

Athleisure has become a huge part of my personal style over the past ten years. I have three kids, a job, and I am active in the community. Between my work, volunteer work, and family, it’s hard to find time to change my outfit multiple times per day; plus, I like to be comfortable. I’m so thankful for adidas clothing and accessories. They are so comfortable, and always appropriate for my busy lifestyle!

It’s amazing how day-to-day style has evolved in the new millennium. When people wore casual clothing before the new millennium, they still looked fairly dressed up by today’s standards. A casual look on a busy day, such as the ones I live, would have included jeans, high heel boots, a statement top, and a structured jacket. While this sounds like a cute, casual look, it’s not that comfortable, and you can’t wear it to the gym! That type of outfit requires extra time in your day to change for a workout, and the structured jacket leaves little in the way of comfort when you’re extremely busy. I am so thankful athleisure has become more than a trend; it’s a classic style of dressing in the modern world. Love that!

Adidas has the best clothing and accessories for a comfortable and chic athleisure look. I love their collection of leggings, track pants, and active pants. They have a variety of tops to choose from; so, you can look gym-serious, or urban casual-it’s your choice! Of course, adidas also has a variety of jackets and sweatshirts to keep you cozy on chilly days. They are so soft and extremely high quality; so, you can wash and wear them often without worrying about adidas clothing wearing out. For my busy lifestyle, that is a must!

You can find the perfect athleisure look online at adidas.com.

Have you ever wondered what to wear on an airplane? Maybe you travel a lot and are looking for something new and comfortable for your next flight. Or perhaps you haven’t traveled recently and need to replace your Pan-Am bag and blue suit? Well, I have found the most comfortable clothing for flying! It’s SOMA Intimates new Style Essentials collection!

Long flights sometimes drive me a little bit crazy because I am trapped in a tube, who knows how high above the ground, for five to six hours. It is really boring. I can’t go for a run, I can’t jump and down, and I feel stuck in my seat. Since I am stuck in a seat, which isn’t exactly comfortable, I always need to make sure my airplane attire is as comfortable as possible. Thank goodness for SOMA Intimates Style Essentials collection!

The SOMA Intimates Style Essentials clothing is extremely soft. Their clothing is so soft and comfortable, sometimes I forget I am in street clothes and not wearing pajamas! haha

I love these cropped leggings for travel. They are really soft and easy to wear. They allow me to get as comfortable as possible in my airplane seat; and that’s quite a feat! This blue tunic tee is super soft and comfy, it’s great for being comfy at home, travel, or anytime you want to wear something which is no-fuss. You may recognize this black jacket, it’s my current go-to cover up. This jersey jacket is really soft and the perfect weight for fall weather. It’s great on foggy days and perfect for air travel. Love!

You can find more comfy air travel options from SOMA Intimates online at Soma.com.

Track pants on a spring day

Have ever had one of those days when you wake up and something hurts, you’re exhausted, and your schedule is full? Ugh, that was me last Friday! I woke up with an aching knee, I was exhausted-as if I ran a marathon, which I did not, and my schedule was jam-packed!

My knee threw me for a loop. Since it was spring break, I thought it would be a good idea to do a few volunteer hours with my daughters since I am trying to teach them our responsibility for the community around us. Since the weather was nice, I thought an outdoor volunteer job would be nice. So, I took the girls down to the Rose Garden in San Jose and we joined other volunteers to help maintain the garden. Our job was weeding. Now, I have a gardener at my house, so although I know how to weed, my body isn’t used to it. We worked for three hours, and afterwards it felt like I had done squats for three hours straight! Eeek!

I could barely walk the next two days, and on Friday I woke up with a pain in my knee. Ugh! I had to cancel my plans of attending spin class with a friend, and just concentrate on getting through the day without aggravating my knee even more. I met up with my fabulous friend Laura from Have Need Want and snapped pictures of our outfits, played with her cute little toddler, and ate a yummy lunch at Tacolicious. I’m so thankful I had this athleisure outfit in my closet to help me be comfortable throughout the day! Three cheers for the athleisure trend! Hip, hip, hooray!

There is nothing like wearing super comfortable sneakers and soft track pants to help alleviate exhaustion and pain. I never want to take these sneakers off! Or these pants! haha, they are so comfy!

Do you ever have days when your body just wants to stay in bed, but you have so many errands to run, you have to get up and go? What’s your favorite way to dress on those days? Mine is definitely athleisure!
