I don’t know if there is such a thing as ‘moving chic’ but I’m going to go ahead and coin the term today. The last week of my life has been totally upside-down. We (me, hubby, two kids, and two dogs) moved out of our house and into my in-laws. All of our stuff has been moved into storage. And in about a month, we’ll ALL be moving officially to Connecticut! Chicago to Connecticut – we’re going to be East Coasters. My husband will be working in Manhattan, I will take Style Spies to Connecticut, and the kids will start new schools. Ahhhh! So excited to start a new chapter but super sad to leave this wonderful town we call home behind.
In this interim period where I’m doing a lot of driving kids to and from camp, dogs to and from doggy day care, playdates, and just keeping everyone busy in general – what I wear day to day is all about comfort. But I don’t want to be sloppy comfortable. I want to be chic-comfortable. Doesn’t everyone these days?
According to Businessoffashion.com there is no way but up for the activewear market. From H&M to Tory Burch, everyone is expanding into the activewear market these days. A new favorite place of mine has become Athleta. Owned by the Gap, Athleta has really come into its own in the past year or so. They’ve upped the ante on style and in my opinion are truly competing with Lululemon and other places like Sweaty Betty in the UK. The fit is great, the price is slightly better than the afore mentioned spots, and it holds up well.
Here are a few of my recent favorite purchases from Athleta – and some items I’m hoping to get very soon! Also, they have a 20% off code for sale items – EXTRA20. Offer ends 7/28, so get shopping!
You might be asking yourself…..who is taking over Style Spies in Chicago? Stay tuned! But in the meantime……check out Actually Just Jennie.
