With so much change and unpredictability surrounding the past number of months since Covid-19, there is one thing that I can say with absolute certainty. We have all adopted a new level of appreciation and found some level of comfort through our choice of clothing during this time. Yes, you’ve guessed it! I am referring to Athleisure wear, clothing that everyone, of every age, seems to now have as a staple in their wardrobe and working from home wardrobe. And I have to say, I am loving FitPink!
You just have to look around you to see how popular leggings and comfies have become as they are fashionable yet practical, the perfect combination. They fit perfectly into our busy lifestyles, be it running to the supermarket at lunchtime, in the evenings out for a stroll, playing in the garden with the children in between zoom calls or meeting up for a socially distanced barbeque with friends. They are no longer dedicated solely for those going for a run, or heading to the gym. They are for everyday, going anywhere, for everyone.
I have to admit since I moved from the office to working from home, the high heels have been put away, the heavy weighted jeans and blazers have been hung up and the leggings, the shorts, the comfortable tops and FitPink zipped cover-ups have been my saviour. The choice of Athleisure wear available nowadays is second to none, with the high quality material, the design, the practicality with pockets in sports leggings, the colours available in compression leggings and the flexibility they provide, make life that bit easier. FitPink have the most beautifully created and stylish products and the fact that I am supporting a small Irish business, based in Donegal, makes it all the better.
For someone like me, who has a jam packed schedule or even just for comfort in the home, we all want to wear clothing that you can move freely in. I often try to get out for a walk on my lunch break for some fresh air and to clear my head, so it makes sense to have my FitPink leggings on at the beginning of the day so that I am ready to get out the door without delay.
Another tip when working from home is to make sure you have a handy reusable water bottle nearby to stay hydrated. Water is something I know I never get enough of and so having the FitPink water bottle nearby is the reminder that I need to keep the water levels up.
