Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.
If I could only shop ONE store for the rest of my life, it would be Athleta. It really is the best place to shop as a mom because the outfits are so chic and put together (yet comfortable). In my older age I find that investing in anything from Athleta is a good decision. I live in it!
A few items I have my eye on above
Trekkie North Jogger | These joggers are incredibly comfy and great for hiking, exploring or just every day! I got my typical size in these!
Athleta Ultra High Rise Elation Tight | These are the leggings I ALWAYS rave about. By far the best leggings I have ever put on EVER. They even work with a bump!! They will even work the whole way through. They are so easy to pull on, the fabric is amazing and I just cannot say enough good things. They were rated NUMBER ONE in my LEGGINGS review post! I am in the XS and they fit all the way through my pregnancy too!
Excursion Waistbag | This is the best bag for every day and for travel. I put all of our passports, my wallet, phone,etc. right in here and wear it in front for easy access through the airport.
Pocket Leggings | The same leggings as my favorite ones – same fabric & fit BUT with pockets!
Salutation Jogger | My FAVORITE joggers – these things are insanely comfortable and have a nice loose band which is comfortable for postpartum and under a belly too! I am wearing my typical size – head here where I style them 4 ways!
Downtown Vest | This vest is SO warm and I love that high neck line on it! I also have an Old Navy vest which is great too but this truly is worth the investment for warmth! I am in the XS! I recently added this vest to my outdoor running gear and it’s awesome – I will wear it over my long sleeve when its less than 30 degrees and it does the trick! I don’t like adding bulk when I run!
Hybrid Fleece Tight (in picture) | I recently got these because I heard they are AWESOME for cold weather and I was really digging their lighter color! If you want a plain pair of fleece leggings that come in black – these are freaking awesome!
Base Layer (in pictures below) | I just got this for running outdoors but will also be using it as my base layer for going outdoors once it’s cold! I love that it has the built in balaclava!
Studio Wide Leg Pants | one of you told me that I NEEDED these and let me tell you something, they are pretty damn amazing. I have worn them three nights in row. The fabric is out of this world, I love the wide leg and they would be AMAZING postpartum (especially with a C section!!)
Speedlight Top | I love that these have a stickiness on the bottom so that they don’t ride up! They were also PERFECT with a bump!
