Back with another athleisure post this week and this one is so exciting! Did you know that J.McLaughlin makes activewear? I had no idea until recently and am so happy about it. It's the quality you expect from the brand and you can now wear it during your workouts. But to be honest, it's almost too cute to sweat in!
I wore this jacket and legging set to tennis one afternoon. The thing with tennis bubbles is that you most definitely need to layer. I'm cold going in and until I'm warmed up. Then, once we get a rally going, I get warm and start to shed layers, so this jacket is quite perfect. Not to mention it fits like a dream. The hem of the jacket is slightly curved so the back is a little longer than the front, making it really appropriate to wear with leggings.
And with the leggings, I love that there are so many pockets. It's great when I run in and out of the store with just my phone and wallet. I always have a place to stash those things. It's also great because the side pockets are big and stretchy enough for tennis balls. Having those balls on me makes it really convenient when I'm practicing my serve. Also, both pieces are UPF 50+ and they're machine washable. Especially important to me because I always end up getting clay all over me!
My routine on Sunday is to usually go to tennis, and since it's in the suburbs, I head to places like Target, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Trader Joe's, etc. to get everything I need for the week. It's nice to still feel put together even after I've been running all around the court. As for sizing, I'm wearing a size small in both pieces, but suggest sizing down. They stretch and I would say the leggings right slightly big.
