Totally not going to lie, this pregnancy has been a bit bumpy so far in terms of how I have been feeling. Lots of exhaustion and overall just feeling blah. Surprisingly though, one of the things that has helped me significantly feel better is walking outdoors.
There is something about the fresh air that just feels so much more refreshing to me than before I was pregnant. Walking has always been my favorite type of exercise, but since becoming pregnant it has quickly moved up my list of ‘favorite things.’ It’s so strange how much better and (a good) different it feels, and I love it!
It’s odd, but I feel like I have been a lot more active since finding out Baby W number three is on the way, and it feels so great. With that though, one thing I noticed is how lackluster my workout gear has been. I added some new LIVI at Lane Bryant pieces to my closet in January (I wear these leggings alllll the time) but I needed some updated pieces for the warmer months, and also because I am moving and grooving more!
Their overall selection is pretty great and one that I love. I love that there are pieces that match as sets (so you can ditch the old t shirt and leggings), but you can also mix and match! Their selection is also great to take you from working out to running errands-they’re functional for working out but you still look stylish and put together when you’re out and about!
My most recent favorites has been their Eco-Chic collection. Everything in this collection is created with the Ultra Soft Repreve Fiber-it’s made from recycled plastic bottles-how amazing is that (especially as we are in the swing of Earth Week)?! Each pair of pants in their Eco-Chic collection contains 78% recycled plastic, or the equivalent of 23 plastic bottles!
Each tank top in the collection contains 84% recycled plastic, or the equivalent of 15 recycled plastic bottles, and each tee contains 84% recycled plastic, or 20 plastic bottles.
I love this marble print tank and leggings together. The Eco-Chic Active Tank has just the right amount of stretch to move with you, and is flowy enough to not feel restricting at all when working out! And honestly, the print is so adorable that it would even look cute with a pair of jeans! The Eco-Chic Wicking Active 7/8 Leggings are a favorite of mine as well. I feel like they hold me together without being uncomfortable. I will say I do size up in the Active 7/8 Leggings-the fit is just a tad better!
The Eco-Chic Wicking Active 7/8 Leggings in the Colorblock Splicing is another favorite pair of mine! Incredibly comfortable, super flattering, and I love the little pocket hidden in the waistband (I always put my car key in there so I don’t have to carry my whole purse with me when I’m walking at the park). The wider (4 in) waistband gives additional support, too which makes me feel great and gives more comfort. These leggings look so cute with the Eco-Chic Open-Back Active Tee. The open back is so cute and is perfect for those of you that have an adorable, meant-to-be-seen sports bra! Like the Eco-Chic Active Tank, it’s longer in length-my favorite!
