A huge thank you to Vuori and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.

Scotti has been raving (and raving) about Vuori joggers for quite some time now, so when the opportunity arose to test them out myself, I didn’t hesitate. And I can now see why there’s been so much fuss — not only is the fit spot-on, but the fabric…well: it almost defies description.

Vuori Performance Joggers & Elevation Leggings: An Investment In Happiness

Vuori’s Performance Joggers (the ones my sister loves) are soft, comfortable to wear, and look cute enough for running around the city. And Vuori’s leggings are similar: soft, technical, and wildly beautiful. These pieces are simply a joy to put on in the morning.

Vuori’s Performance joggers are made from a fabric that is best described as soft and…silky? They’re smooth enough to caress your skin (hence the ‘silky’ description), yet matte enough and just thick enough that the phrase ‘cloud-soft’ comes to mind.

They’re not overly thin, nor shiny, nor cold. Despite the ‘silky’ description, these pieces are cozy. They’re honestly like nothing else I’ve ever tried.

But Vuori doesn’t just make joggers. They also make seriously hardworking (and gorgeous) athletic wear. Their leggings are stay-put and wicking, yet also very soft. Think matte, not shiny.

I love the uber-high-rise waist — one that stays up without squeezing — and the fact that these leggings are comfortable enough to wear all day (even after working out in them).

Vuori: The Rise, The Shine

My goal, over the last few months, has been to workout five days per week. I’ve found that when I really get a good sweat going, everything improves: skin, sleep, energy levels, anxiety, emotional wellbeing, my ability to mom…literally everything gets better when I commit to the sweat.

I’ve started putting on workout clothes the second I get up. No matter how early, how cold, or how grumpy I am…I put on workout clothes. No further commitment, just take that one first step. To use Vuori’s mantra, it’s The Rise, The Shine.

I like that this mantra sounds like a process. Like a decision one actively has to make. Because some mornings, even putting on workout clothes feels like work. Some mornings it’s hard to remember that I am, ultimately, investing in my happiness.

But it’s amazing how much that one first step helps. I’ve found that I’m much more likely to workout if I’m already dressed for it.

I also appreciate the little touches — the things that make these pieces both more legit (like properly stashing your phone if you go for a run) and unique (like this wildly beautiful pattern). I find these leggings are comfortable enough for running outside, or doing my HIIT workouts outdoors or in.

And for those days when it doesn’t happen? When there are too many other demands on my time or I’m feeling particularly rundown or I just have a totally off day?

That’s alright.

  1. These pieces are great. Love how they look, but really, what stands out to me most is your idea of putting on workout clothes as soon as you wake up. I have got to start exercising for all of the health reasons (physical and mental), and something this simple is a step in the right direction! Starting today, I’m going to do this. Hopefully, I can get myself in gear and start exercising.

  2. How does the Vuori legging compare to Lulu Lemon Align or Beyond Yoga Space Dye (my current favs) in terms of “buttery softness”? I absolutely love the Vuori joggers! And thank you for sharing your tip about dressing for workout first thing in the a.m. I’m going to give it a try starting right now!

  3. Love the details in the design…I was ready to buy a fanny pack (belt bag) to stash my phone and carmex. BTW, are those Brooks Adrenaline or Levitate? Looking for new runners.

  4. I do this too, and it works! I roll out of bed, shove on some workout gear, and head outside (or into my basement, if I want to do weights). I come back 30 or so minutes later and my household is awake and I’m ready for it. (But I have left the house with shirts on inside out, from getting dressed in the dark. Maybe don’t do that?)

  5. I’ve done this for years. It works WONDERS! You start to feel silly sitting around in your workout clothes and before you know it you’re on the bike/headed to the gym/out the door for a run. Bam! Done. Thanks Shana! Always love how you make sponsored posts not seem so “sponsorish.”

  6. I am going to break down and buy these. It is ridiculous how much time and care I put in to what I call my “civilian” clothes, but my workout gear is the basement bargain items. It’s all proper gear, but it doesn’t match or look great, it’s purely functional. I guess I’ve always tried to be practical because it’s going to get all sweaty and gross. But a woman deserves to look good putting in the miles, also, right?! So here goes nothing😂.

    • YES. It definitely helps me get past that initial metal hurdle in the morning! (And oh hey – I’m literally wearing the joggers & hoodie right now….at 3PM, so.)

  7. I have the vuori joggers and they ran a little big for me
    Which I heard was common. For the vuori leggings are they tts or a little big?
