“Unpacked” with Athleta


Chicago summers are simply the best. As much as I love traveling to exotic locations around the world for vacation, we always make sure to stay in and around Chicago during summer time. In other words, we like to ‘stay-cation’. That may mean heading in to the city or to our family lake house for a weekend. For these trips I find it is important to pack light, and bring pieces that can be mixed and matched.

Whether I am lounging around reading magazines and journaling, or going for a jog with my little one – I can look cute and still be comfortable in my Athleta gear. These sweatpants are my favorite because they aren’t baggy at all, but they are still so soft and cozy. I literally wore them every day this past 4th of July weekend- that is, whenever I wasn’t in the pool!
A workout skort is also a must-have in my opinion, because it gives you a little more coverage but still feels just as comfortable as wearing shorts. I paired my skort with an Athleta tank (with a built-in bra), and some great running shoes.

My weekend “stay-cation” packing list


Working Out
Biking & Jogging 

My Yurbuds headphones are seriously the only headphones that don’t hurt my little ears – they are made smaller and more comfortable. Also obsessed with my Samsung Galaxy S5 phone – I still have my iPhone for work but this phone blows it out of the water in my opinion. Of course, I had to go for the gold…
