Y’all know I love a fabulous dress and a pair of sky-high heels. Give me all things pink, polished and put together! But if we’re being honest, my realistic daily ensembles often look, well, a bit less glam. Here’s the thing, though: that doesn’t mean they have to be any less adorable!
The key to looking “casual cute,” in my opinion, is finding a few great brands that deliver consistently well-curated, comfortable pieces that are both functional and fabulous. Bonus points for being eco-friendly!
Does this checklist seem like too tall of an order? Nonsense! Today, I’m thrilled to share four athleisure brands I’m loving… three of which are exceptionally eco-friendly, to boot! And the best part? They’re all available at my go-to, Nordstrom.
Let’s get started, shall we?!
4 athleisure brands I’m loving
the water bottle that cleans itself
When I first came across this brand, I couldn’t believe it. Had someone read my mind each time I saw a water bottle tag stating “hand wash only”?! The LARQ water bottle uses a purifying UV light every two hours to neutralize up to 99.9 percent of harmful, odor-causing germs. Not only that, the bottles are sleek and stylish, and a single charge lasts for one month!
These bottles are pricey, but in my opinion, well worth it. The perfect gift for your activity-loving friend, or a perfect motivational present for yourself! Mine is sitting on my desk right this second.
my favorite leggings made from recycled water bottles
I’ve mentioned this brand that creates the most comfortable leggings out of recycled water bottles before, and I’m so thrilled to learn they are now available at Nordstrom! When I was first introduced to the brand, I was a bit skeptical. How comfortable could leggings made out of… plastic… be?!
Let me tell you. Incredibly comfortable! Not only that, I find them to have the perfect amount of compression to keep them slimming but still lounge-worthy. Plus, sizes go up to 3x!
Y’all know I also love my high-neck sports bras, and Girlfriend Collective has one of my favorite styles, the Topanga! Keep in mind, they aren’t padded, so if you’re looking for more support you may need something different. But they are so comfortable and have a rare adjustable strap feature. I love wearing these for spin and yoga, as well as under lounge tops!
To top it all off.. the color selection is magical. Check them all out here!
a chic slip-on sneaker made from 6 single-use water bottles
Since I do so much spin, I’m always on the hunt for sneakers that are sleek and stylish, as I mainly wear them out and about for errands or walks with Flynn. I fell in love with the style of the Bionica sneaker before even learning about the eco-friendly impact of these shoes. Proof that you don’t have to sacrifice style to be good to our environment!
I’ve been loving the easy slip-on, slip-off nature of these. Streamlined, non-clunky, and the perfect subtle addition to every athleisure look!
a workout line that delivers serious style at affordable pricepoints
Can we all agree that workout wear can get crazy expensive?! I’m sure you already know about Zella, the Nordstrom in-house athletic line, but on the off chance you don’t, let me introduce you to your new BFF!
I always check out Zella first when I’m on the hunt for something sporty and cute. They have all of the on-trend styles at prices that don’t break the bank.
I’m especially loving this wrap sweatshirt! It looks straight out of one of those effortless, just-walked-out-of-yoga celebrity paparazzi photos… but here’s the thing. It’s under $100! Wear it to-and-from your workout class or, like I’m doing today, out and about. I promise you’ll get compliments all day long!
I can always count on Nordstrom to carry the best brands, and it’s no different in the world of workout wear! I hope I’ve been able to introduce you to a few new favorites today. I’d also love to know what brands you’re currently loving! Especially those with an eco-friendly emphasis!
Love from the Sunshine State,
