We are in full-on back to school mode at our house, which means that I finally get my normal work schedule on the books (that free-lance life) and Fall weather is just around the corner. While I’m definitely all about that caramel spice latte and curling up on a rainy day, I’m challenging myself to stretch my limits this season and get our butts outdoors each week!
Perhaps the greater challenge here is getting Ella into something stylish that still fits her criteria for comfort. Luckily, Athleta is a lifestyle and activewear brand that meets all her needs AND my need for fashion forward, quality clothes! Isn’t this belt bag insane? I love the utilitarian vibe in contrast with the feminine crop top and these staple black tights, which actually compliment Ella’s tights too! I love the subtle mommy and me options for my very independent mini-me, but they have some pretty vibrant sets for moms and daughters who want bolder matching options.
Ella and I have been going for evening walks almost daily since she was a toddler. A part of living in the PNW is baring the elements and I always want my daughter to seek adventure outdoors- rain or shine. Having grown up in Texas myself, I found the thought of raising Ella in a dominantly overcast climate quite daunting. But we’ve figured out a great routine for the rainy seasons that includes weekly outings like visiting the local science museum, Omsi, heading to the library or local bookstore and simply getting outdoors for a walk or hike.
What do you do to stay active and/or get outdoors this time of year? Let me know in the comments below.
