What I’m Wearing {great for pregnancy + non-pregnancy}

  • lululemon align pant ii – i’ve pretty much lived in these leggings since I discovered them in my second trimester. Trust me ladies, they are worth the investment. It’s like wear buttery, soft leggings that you can workout in, wear casually, or dress up {from the gym to going on live tv these leggings have been with me throughout my entire pregnancy and i’ve absolutely got my money’s worth}! 
  • athleta finish fast tank – these have been my pregnancy workout tank top go-to’s as they have ruching down both sides of the tank. therefore, i’ve been able to wear my regular, pre-pregnancy sized tank and it’s just growing with me throughout pregnancy. talk about the best of both worlds.
  • old navy go-dry seamless light support sports bra – my favorite sports bra for low-impact workouts, as well as, lounging around the house {or using as a swimsuit top when you decide to go to the waterpark in your third trimester}.
  • Mizuno Wave Rider 20 Lightweight Women’s Sneakers – I originally got these because I loved the color, but they are a great running shoe as well.
  • amazfit arc activity monitor – great for monitoring your heart rate during workouts, as well as, tracking your steps and sleep habits.
