The Vuori Pieces I’m Wearing Like Real Clothes (Even Post-Workout)

Thank you to Vuori Clothing and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post.

Vuori just gets me. They’ve managed to make clothes that — technically — are for working out, but they’re so soft, comfortable and cute…I find myself wearing them all darn day. And while I’m obviously going to talk about Vuori’s joggers (they have an almost cult-like following — and for good reason), I was shocked — shocked!! — by how much I loved two of Vuori’s workout tops. They look like Real Clothes, but feel (and function) like workout tops.

Vuori Pieces That Keep Me Moving

As someone who is constantly trying to juggle the demands of work and momming (even without a pandemic), all while maintaining meaningful relationships, good health and a sense of self (HA — that’s all, guys)…I’ve found that working out is the one best thing I can do to maintain both my health and sanity.

So any pieces that make this balancing act a little easier, a little more…joyful…well: That’s a win.

I have seriously high hopes for Vuori’s new Lux Harem Pants, especially once the weather warms. Like Vuori’s epic Performance joggers, these are also made from Vuori’s special silky-soft-yet-matte blend, the one that has inspired a cult-like following. (Sidenote: they wash well, too.)

These joggers have a slouchier fit that somehow elevates them into Real Pant Status. The vibe is almost…dressy? In addition to working out (or wearing them as PJs), I’ve also been wearing the gray pair with gray cashmere sweaters for a tone-on-tone elevated-lounge look. This summer, I plan to pair them with flat sandals and strappy tank tops for a chic (yet comfy) outfit. And the joggers fit over bike shorts quite nicely.

What I Love About Vuori Activewear

Vuori’s Clean Elevation Shorty shorts are another easy win. They’re made with recycled polyester, have a seriously comfortable high rise, and are 6″ in length. I’ve found that 7″ bike shorts are too long for me, but 5″ bike shorts are often too short for most other people, so I think the 6″ is a genius length. It’s not overwhelming, but not uncomfortably short, either. And yes: this fabric is buttery soft. Matte, not shiny and cold, and breathable.

The top is Vuori’s Mudra Fitted tee. I LOVE THIS THING. The vibe is all ’90s baby tee…but the fabric is amazing. It’s a ribbed knit, but unlike the baby tees from the ’90s, this ribbed knit is actually sustainable Premium Modal fabric, has a UPF of 30+, and is thick, stretchy and comfortable. It skims over lumps and bumps, feels like a workout tee (albeit a really comfortable one) and looks like a regular shirt. When I’m not using it as a workout tee, I plan to wear it this spring (and summer) with cute joggers or slouchy straight-leg jeans.

The other top that blew away my expectations is Vuori’s Rib Crop tank. This top manages to be both sexy and supportive, and — like all other Vuori pieces — is made from gorgeous fabric. Ribbed and textured — like a real top — yet performance-ready. It’s actually a little longer in real life — in the photo below, I have it tucked under a bit. It also has a gorgeous, strappy back.

Vuori’s Daily Leggings are going to be another forever favorite. Em was right about these — they are amazing. High-rise, but don’t roll down (thanks, I’m sure, to the genius tie-waist), and the ankle cuff detail is a nice touch. They’re fantastic for working out…but also really great for lounging around the house. The rear view isn’t bad, either. 😉

I really identify with Vuori’s “Investment in Happiness”. Working out — the effort, the sweat — is, for me, a requirement. It is the way I invest in my own happiness. So much so that I’ve started ignoring my own mental gymnastics around finding time to work out — or not…the whole, “I’ll skip today, and double my workout tomorrow!” types of excuses that I often use when overwhelmed.

For me, consistency is the most important thing. Working out consistently is the only way I’ve found to stay sane, have any amount of energy, get enough sleep and manage stress. Since consistency has become the key, in order to stay consistent, I’ve dramatically lowered my expectations. I no longer require myself to run X number of miles, or to take that hour-long class. If I’m really not feeling a HIIT workout, I now give myself permission to do the low-impact one. I’ve found that I’m much more successful in the long-term if I keep my Get Strong commitment to 20 minutes, 3 times per week.

Some weeks I’m feeling really good — and I’ll end up working out 5 days, or maybe some of those days I do a 30-minute sweat session, or even a 45-minute one! Some weeks, a short 2-mile run will turn into 5.

But other weeks…well. Some weeks are really tough. And on those weeks, I clear the mental clutter from my mind, and follow-through — without judgement — on my minimum commitment: 20 minutes, 3 times per week. And some weeks, those 20 minutes feel like an hour. But I’ve found that — for the most part — I can do almost anything for 20 minutes. I throw on some workout gear — or heck, even just something comfy (Vuori joggers are great for this) and just…get. it. done.

The Vuori Pieces I Turn To For Both Workout & Life

Everything featured above (as well as a few Vuori pieces I already own and love) can be found below. They really have made getting dressed in the morning that much easier. And if you haven’t yet tried Vuori’s epic joggers (and matching sweatshirts or hoodies), I suggest browsing this page. They have them all organized by color, and it’s really a pleasant way to browse.

xo,

  1. It’s so funny you wrote about this brand.. I have been wondering if i should invest in a piece or two by this brand. But more important in your last picture I noticed your slippers.. Where can I get myself a pair.. i used to have ones that looked similar to that and loved them. And miss them because i couldn’t find a replacement.

  2. Great post! You look amazing these days. What ever your work out routine is, it is working well for you. Would you consider a post about what you are eating for good health these days?

    • Ahhhh thank you for this!! And yes – I’ve finally come to some sort of steady-state with what we’re eating these days. Let me try and get some coherent thoughts together.

  3. I really like my Vuori joggers and the Bella bra, but have been disappointed with the clean elevation leggings. The zipper in the waist band broke immediately and I tried running with my iphone in the back pocket of the waist band and it was terrible. I wouldn’t recommend those leggings.

  4. Love Vuori. Thanks for the review on some of their pieces I haven’t tried yet. The burgundy slippers in the last photo, where did you get those? Thank you!

  5. Vuori is my absolute favorite currently. It helps that they are local to me. But really, I feel like they are better than Lululemon

  6. I will do that! I just realized a good friend of mine has the exact same leggings and had the zipper also break immediately. They are really soft though.

  7. I purchased the performance joggers based on your recommendation and I LOVE them- seriously, it’s all I want to wear right now. I also bought the jogger version of the leggings and they are just as fantastic. I was planning on keeping one or the other but they are equally amazing and I ended up keeping both of them. Thank you for introducing me to vuori! Now I need to try the tops, too!
