I don’t know about you, but usually my travel outfits go something like this:
Headed out of town: Cute outfit!
Headed back home: Yoga leggings are all I can manage right now.
Anybody else? Show of hands?
But, look! Despite the mostly-gym-clothes outfit, I’m wearing a real sweater and a real scarf! Points for sprucing it up a bit and not going 100% workout clothes.
It’s a basic look — with that grey on black color scheme — but I feel great in it. Put together. All black has that effect, doesn’t it? Although, I have to say, I can only wear an all black outfit like this while traveling. At home, I have a pup who sheds tiny white hairs everywhere, so it’s just not practical. I’ve all but stopped buying any new black clothing because of it.
Let’s talk about these yoga leggings for a second.
(This is about to sound like an ad, but it’s not.)
These leggings are from Girlfriend Collective, a responsible startup that’s passionate about taking care of the planet + people. If you want to be in the know, read more about their ethics + manufacturing.
Also, their yoga leggings are free right now. Yup, free. You just pay for shipping, and you’ve got yourself a new pair of yoga leggings.
I’ve been wearing mine to yoga once or twice a week for about four months, and they still look new. The only downside I’ve found is that the crotch does sag a tiny bit, and I need to pull it up every now and then. But that might just be the way they fit on me. It’s slight, and not enough to be a deal breaker.
Okay, your turn! Do you tend to dress more on the real-clothes-side or the gym-clothes-side when traveling? Do any of you have Girlfriend leggings already? Also! Got any other recommendations for responsibly made workout gear? Share away!
See you Thursday — we’ll be talking about bulk-free layering.
