Why I live in Athleisure

Lifestyle, Style

Athleisure has been one of the hottest things in fashion over the past few years.

Brands have started and grown purely by producing fashion-forward activewear, which can be worn for exercise, and styled for daily wear.

Soon after, high street, boutique and designer brands, jumped onto the ‘trend’ and have launched their own ranges of athleisure.

One of these brands I’m especially excited about is Jack Wills.

They’ve recently launched a contemporary, classic and very chic, athleisure collection, which includes pieces perfect for yoga, running, boxing, dancing, you name it.

The pieces are also luxe and comfy enough to also wear as loungewear, making them fabulous for running around in, throwing on when you’re heading out for coffee, or simply chilling at home.

You may not think it, but I literally live in loungewear. I love wearing comfy clothing while I’m working, so I never feel restricted nor get distracted by what I have on.

As I work for myself from home, my work wardrobe literally consists of leggings, a tee and a jumper. Super chilled, and handy and time-saving if I want to jump on my yoga mat throughout my working day.

Normally, I only ever dress up if heading out the house. Even when I run to the supermarket, or have a peek in the shops, I tend to just throw on my puffer coat and trainers on top of my chilled outfit.

Simple, easy and comfy.

Although, I love working from home, I do find I can tend to get carried away and work all day without any breaks. That’s why, as I mentioned to you when I was telling you about my feel-good rituals, I have embraced the power and amazingness of yoga.

As soon as I wake up in the morning, I roll out my yoga mat and depending on how I’m feeling, will get my yoga on for between 15 minutes and an hour. If I’m feeling a little foggy or need a good stretch during the day, I will again roll out my mat, and again later in the afternoon or in the evening.

Yoga has been incredible for me to take up. I always praise it for making me strong and toned, helping my posture and flexibility, keeping my brain sharp and focused, and de-stressing and chilling me out.

Do you yoga?
