Workout Wear vs Casual Wear - Is There a Difference?

Welcome to another week of discussion about daily style and real clothes for real women. This week, we are taking on yoga pants. That's right, yoga pants - the uniform of SAHMs and WAHMs everywhere. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with yoga pants. In fact, I love a great pair of (non-see through) yoga pants! But does throwing on a pair of yoga pants, count as getting "dressed"?

Stylish ideas to take your worout wear to casual wear

I think it's become a very fine line between exercise wear, active wear and casual wear these days. As more and more people adopt more active lifestyles, there's new hiking, biking and yoga clothing on the market that can easily take you from the trails to lunch.Not only do they look good, but they come in a variety of materials that can keep you warm, keep you cool, or keep you "tucked in", all while helping you look great.

More and more women are looking to companies such as Athleta, Aventura and REI for everyday wear. Comfort, durability, easy-care and still stylish . . .seems like a big win in my book.

With the onslaught of rain, snow and ice here in PA lately, I've been living in yoga pants with sneakers, a t shirt and a cardigan or leggings with a sweater and my Hunter Wellies. I'm just uninspired to get dressed if I'm not really going anywhere. Take today's outfit for instance. My to-do list includes getting much work at my desk done and a possible trip to Target. So here's what I have on:

Workout Wear as Casual Wear Style Idea
Sweater - Chris and Carol (from a small boutique in NJ)
T-Shirt - Lord and Taylor
Yoga Pants - C9 from Target
Shoes - Vionic
Watch - Baby-G from Casio
Bracelets - Alex and Ani, Tiffany
Earrings - Kate Spade
Necklace - AnnikaLane (Etsy)

It's easy. It's comfortable. It's neat and presentable, and somewhat stylish.To head out to run errands, I'm adding a plum-colored scarf and a jacket or a vest.

What do you think about Workout Wear as Everyday Wear?
