Wonders never cease. There was a time when I wore leggings and trainers 3 times a week as I raced between pilates, going for wog (walk/jog – basically pavement scuffing) and cycling (5 minutes back and from Nursery drop.) Despite not wearing it *much now, I know what I like – head to toe black! However, the main focus of this post is to highlight a few statement pieces that you can buy at the moment – to make proud to do the school run in whilst also comfortable! Call it School Run Sport Luxe…
Grey always looks chic and as we have Spring in the not so distant future – this apple green will lift up your outfit (and your mood).
This stretch sweatshirt is a fun and comfortable sweater to throw on in the morning. You can get your little one practicing their letters too…
I love the funnel neck of this snazzy jacket when it is zipped up and the diagonal stripes makes it very flattering.
Understated whilst also keeping your toe in the ever-present trend of slogan sweats. They aren’t going away any time soon – they will just get wilder and wilder. (Have you seen Mango’s #feminist sweater?)
I love a red jumper and I think I can squeeze this into sportswear. It certainly bridges the gap.
Whistles Side Stripe £119
Side stripes are everywhere and for good reason, they are elongating and add a bit of detail to otherwise plain trousers.
Whistles is on fire this season and have jumped on the athleisure trend with gusto. Hats off to them. Love these tapered joggers.
More tapered joggers but this time with my favourite detail of 2018. The striped edge. I need more of it. I need it in metallics, wide stripes, think stripes, on collars, on cuffs… Please let me know if you find any – it deserves a post of its own.
A more traditional side stripe which makes these joggers more versatile.
Biba Jungle Gym Legging £32
High waist, wide band, patterned front panel, mega print – tick tick tick tick. LOVE
Reebok High Rise Tights £64.95
Again, these aren’t a major breakthrough this season but the high waist is. There won’t be any muffin top with these ‘tights’.
New Balance 247 Trainers £64.99
They are called 247 for a reason – wear them all day – to the gym, supermarket and out int he evening. Classic & cool. Black and white. Yes.
These silver weave Tote’s are massive and will carry everything from book bags (the kids), towel, water bottles and your laptop.
Hope this has inspired you top hop foot over to the athleisure trend that is rapidly expanding into the mainstream. No one will bat an eyelid or ask what class you are heading to as it’s become the new mums uniform!
Have a great day,
Lots of love
