As I’ve gotten older I’ve begun to really embrace my quirks and habits to learn new ways to make them work in my favor. My Type A personality traits? Really handy when I’m juggling a lot and need to stay organized. Stubborn tendencies? They can make magic happen when faced with a new challenge that seems impossible.
One of the biggest changes I’ve made over the past few years is embracing being a morning person. From tackling my most important tasks of the day first thing, to managing to seemingly squeeze a few extra hours with an early wakeup time, mornings have been critical to staying on top of my busy schedule and really optimizing my days. Lately I’ve been challenging myself to stick with a 6 AM wakeup time every day and mix it up with my morning routine to keep things fresh and fun.
Every morning tends to look a bit different, but you’re likely to find me wearing a pair of Athleta Street Tights most days – they’re a serious upgrade to your standard leggings with stylish details and even a pocket that fits your phone (GAME CHANGER!). They’ve been my partner in crime for grabbing coffee at my neighborhood favorite, Sightglass, taking Callie to the park for some morning fetch or even biking around to meet girlfriends for brunch before we head into the office.
Pair ’em with a tunic sweater and ankle boots for days when you’re skipping the gym but still want to be comfy, or easily make the transition from a spin class to running your weekend errands just by ditching your sweaty shirt and throwing on a cozy jacket, Athleta’s street tights can truly do it all. And not only can they do it all, but you’ll look damn good while doing it.
I’ve never worn a pair of tights that are so flattering – they hold you in in just the right places with a high-rise waist and never get saggy or bunched up like other leggings I’ve tried in the past. The zipper detail at the ankle on this pair is both fashionable and functional since it not only adds some edge to your classic black legging but also comes in handy for ventilation while you get your sweat on.
How do you make the most of your mornings? Do you have any go to pieces that help make mornings easier?
