I don’t know about you but I am BUSY. BUSY, BUSY, BUSY, BUSY, BUSY. Did I mention BUSY? I know you all are too. Can I just take a moment to say how awesome all you mummas and working girls out there are? You guys are absolute legends and deserve a medal for what you do on a daily basis.
Time is so precious. For me, I have three small children. I’m trying to be the perfect mum, run a happy and functional household, work in my family business and keep a blog going. Oh yeah, did I mention I have a husband and he’s pretty demanding too. It’s insane to say the least and at times I feel like I’m going completely under.
Whatever your life entails, I know for sure you are as busy as me. Even though we are trying to look cool, calm and collected half the time! Sooooooo, at least a few mornings a week (when I don’t have time to think about an outfit to put together) it’s 100% active wear for me. And boy I love these days!
How good are the choices for today’s active wear? They’re amazing! Whether you are actually planning on working out, or just running your daily errands, you can look totally rocking in a stylish outfit that’s super easy to put together.
This little group of wears, is not as complex as the other sections of your wardrobe. It really is pretty straight forward with groups of tanks/tees/long sleeves, leggings/pants/tights/shorts and outerwear or layers like jackets and vests to spruce it up a bit. How hard can it be?

When compiling my active wear wardrobe, I choose a selection of the above so I can mix and match. My colour palette is positively dull, but if you like your colours, select a little story that will integrate well with the other items. This way, they’re easy to throw together and you really can’t go too wrong. It’s nice to tie outfit colours back to your footwear too.
The thing I love about active wear, is the fact it’s so super chic and stylish these days. I will easily go to kindy/school drop off, a yoga or pilates class, drop into the office for a few hours and then go to an appointment or do grocery shopping in one of these outfits. Nothing really stands out as “gym gear” to me. It’s kinda like glorified street wear… This awesome fashion category is totally acceptable to wear pretty much anywhere and has become the norm for many women each day!
Do you wear your sportswear much? Spill the beans mummas! xx
