As a mom of two little girls I am very conscious of every purchase I make. Whether it be from a financial standpoint or a wearability standpoint I try and ask myself three questions before adding a new item to my wardrobe. This outfit was a no-brainer as it can be worn both to a workout and running errands. Here are the questions I asked myself before I added these items to my wardrobe.
3 Questions To Ask Yourself When Making A New Purchase
Is this a versatile item?
Can it go from day to night?
Can it be worn to workout AND wear on a daily basis as part of my “mom-uniform”?
Will I wear it again?
I’m a fan of the shopping hunt. When I discover that piece that I just HAVE to have, I ask myself is it the thrill of the hunt or do I see myself wearing it again?
I leave it in my shopping cart over night and if it is still on my mind 48 hours later … and if its gone than it wasn’t meant to be….
Does it fit into my closet?
Think about the colors and items you really reach for on a daily basis. Will this work with them?
That hot pink silk crop top that I had to HAVE three years ago I have only worn twice! That money would have been much better spent on a pair of joggers.
Here is why I made the decision to purchase the tank, leggings and sports bra all of which are from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
These lean, capri-length leggings are ideal for hot yoga or warmer climates thanks to a new, ultra lightweight fabrication that still offers the same stretchy, moisture-wicking properties and flatlock seaming for a comfortable, chafe-free fit. Plus the capri length is flattering and its nice to wear something other than my standard black leggings. I typically opt for Nike Compression tights when working out but these are soft and beyond comfortable! I recommend them for yoga or pilates. Tip – size down they run large!
This loose racerback tank lets you show off your favorite sports underpinning while practicing your best warrior pose. A great tank for athleisure or athletic wear. I love it knotted in the front or back to define your shape. The tank is slightly sheer so I love it paired with a contrasting colored sports bra for a fun vibrant look.
This Nike Dri-FIT sports bra is great for keeping you cool and dry during low-impact, high-energy workouts, while crisscrossing elastic straps personalize the fit. A great option to show off the peek-a-boo sports bra trend. It also has padding which I love and doesn’t feel like it suffocates you but will still hold us smaller chested ladies in place during a run!
The Sneakers (not included in sale but a great investment)
Nike Frees are my sneaker of choice for running and everyday activities when I’m wearing workout wear. I’m all about bright colored sneakers but my husband encouraged me to try out a pair of all white kicks. Reluctant to give in to something that seemed so boring I’m actually really happy that I did. They are comfortable, beyond versatile and look good with almost everything!
