So today, I caved. While thinking about this problem over the past few weeks, I've come to the realization that at this stage of my life "active wear" might be the best solution for my everyday "mom uniform". I really don't like this, because I've always thought workout clothes should be reserved for working out. I never understood when some of my friends would by "cute" sneakers, NOT meant for working out in. I've always been my happiest in a good fitting pair of jeans, a cute top, and nice shoes with a small heel. That still sounds good for going out to dinner, but it doesn't work so well chasing Brady around the playground or at mommy & me gymnastics!
I recently discovered Athleta website (owned by Gap). And this afternoon I ordered 2 tops and a pair of bermuda shorts. Please don't remind me that they look like sweatpants - at least they are stylish sweatpants. Hopefully when the weather cools off around here (probably not till December!) I won't be as frustrated by all this. Or maybe I will have come to terms with my new wardrobe by that point in time:)
Here's what I bought...
Just don't laugh at me when you run into me in the grocery store.
