As a working mom whose daily to-do list seems nearly impossible, I’ve come to the conclusion that a versatile wardrobe is really the key to keeping my cool. Since an average morning involves jumping into a Zoom meeting right as I finish taking my two-year-old on a walk, it’s important for me to find pieces that give me some movement while still looking stylish enough so I feel like I’ve made an effort. Lately, Athleta has been my source for finding these exact pieces, and I know I’m not the only one who swears by this goldmine for an active lifestyle.
I follow Jaimmy Koroma and Jules Acree, who are both experts in activewear, for daily inspiration on incorporating movement into my day-to-day life and doing it in style. And lately, I’ve seen each of them wearing the Athleta-fan-favorite Brooklyn Pants on their feeds, and I knew that was my in for talking to them about how they find an element of movement in their busy lives. Luckily, I was able to get in touch with the two fashionable fitness girls, and they both pointed to finding the perfect balance of style and comfort as a helpful tool in motivating themselves to stay active and showed me the different outfits they love to wear throughout the week. I’ll be adding an iteration of each of these looks to my weekly rotation, along with their tips for making the most of their days.
