I love getting dolled up for date night with the hubs or dinner with friends but when it comes to my typical weekend wear, I spend the majority of Saturday and Sunday in comfy yoga pants, soft sports bras, and a layering of running tanks and cozy, long sleeved tops. A typical Saturday might involve going from yoga to the farmer’s market and then out for coffee with a friend so, for me, looking cute and being comfortable throughout the day is key.
As you might imagine, a good portion of my dresser drawer real estate is filled with activewear that both feels good and fits my on-the-go weekend lifestyle. One of my favorite new brands is Sweaty Betty, a UK-based activewear company and also one of our awesome Elf for Health sponsors this year.
If you’re not familiar, Sweaty Betty makes beautiful clothing for all active lifestyles–whether you’re into going to the gym, yoga, running, playing on the beach or in the snow. All pieces are designed using the highest quality fabrics. Each season a bunch of experts, athletes and ambassadors put the newest Sweaty Betty line to the test with some intense training sessions to ensure each piece delivers maximum comfort and performance.
So far my Sweaty Betty collection consists of these fun yoga leggings, this long sleeve tee (both of which I basically lived in this weekend) a super cute workout tank and these adorable base layers that I simply can’t wait to break out for ski season.
The yoga leggings are soft, sweat-wicking, super stretchy and yes, 100% opaque. Sweaty Betty puts all of their leggings through the Downward Dog test just to be sure! They’re super flattering (even despite the busy print) and I absolutely adore the high-waisted cut.
The long sleeve top is made from a cozy bamboo fabric (which also happens to be naturally anti-bacterial) and is seamlessly constructed which means there no rubbing to worry about on those longer, outdoor runs this winter.
The tank (or workout vest as they call it–such a cute British term, isn’t it?) is another new favorite. It’s super soft, lightweight and has a longer, figure-flattering cut. It also comes in an assortment of colors and patterns which basically means I need at least two more.
I’ve haven’t formally tested out the base layers just yet but I did put them on one lazy weekend a few weeks back and literally didn’t change out of them for a full 24 hours. Needless to say I’m very optimistic they’ll be just as cozy on the slopes too!
The only problem so far is that everything is so comfortable, cute and well made it only makes me want Sweaty Betty everything. As in all Sweaty Betty all of the time.
Thankfully Christmas is coming and my list is pretty short so there’s a decent chance Santa will leave a little Sweaty Betty swag beneath the tree for me!
A special thanks to Sweaty Betty for sponsoring the Elf for Health challenge this year. Their mission is to empower any and all women through fitness which is a big part of what this challenge is about.
