The title says it all, gang. Need to kick-start your self-confidence? Slip into something, anything, from Vuori.
I know. I know. That sounds corny as hell, but you know by now that we take our partnerships seriously, and I couldn’t be more genuinely passionate about Vuori if I tried.
In fact, at this point, I’m almost embarrassed to admit just how often I find myself wearing Vuori something or other. It’s at least five days a week. Possibly daily. And there’s a good chance, if I’m wearing one Vuori item, I’m probably actually wearing two…or more.
My Fail-Safe Self-Confidence Hack? Vuori’s Stellar Joggers + Leggings

Here’s why: While there are some brands out there that make really stellar activewear, Vuori makes really stellar performance apparel that makes me feel really stellar, in more ways than one.
Yes, the fabrics are luxe and buttery and high performing. But when I slip into a pair of Vuori bottoms, I feel like a million bucks. No exaggeration. Few clothing items I own make me feel as confident and, dare I say, sexy, as a pair of Vuori leggings — or heck, even the joggers.
Turns out, it doesn’t matter if the fabric is designed to snugly hug curves or barely skim them — the folks at Vuori have cracked the code on performance wear that somehow boosts endorphins before you’ve even broken a sweat.
Which, happily, has resulted in me breaking a sweat more often because as it also turns out, if I’m dressed the part, I’m 99% more likely to actually get my body moving.

And once that body is moving? Well, then, I’m really feeling myself. Coming off a year of doubling my parenting load (which has effectively quadrupled my mental load), I’ll take any little win I can get.
Good-looking performance apparel? Win. Feeling good? Even bigger win. But let’s be brutally honest here: feeling good about looking good? Once upon a time I might’ve been ashamed to embrace a concept that seemed so, I dunno…vain?
These days, I know that fleeting feeling for what it really is.
A total jackpot.
From Drop-Off To All-Day Wear, Vuori’s Clean Elevation Leggings Are My Fave — Maybe…Ever?

Most days of the week, this is the outfit I reach for first thing in the morning — the Clean Elevation leggings are everything. It’s pretty enough that I feel somewhat presentable at school drop-off (I love Vuori’s new Palo Santo Heather color so, so much, but the muted Stormy color is downright elegant), and slipping into it makes a spontaneous stroller hike or nap-time mat session exponentially more likely to happen.
And then, of course, on the days when I don’t quite get around to one of those workouts? Well, it’s comfy enough to wear right on through the evening — without an ounce of feeling guilty about never having “gotten dressed” for real.
Long Line Elevation Bra in Palo Santo Heather // I always love the smooth lines of a longline bra, and the Elevation iteration here is no different. It’s got removable cups (I’m wearing them here for modesty, but I actually prefer it without) — and like the vast majority of Vuori’s bras and tops, the straps are interesting and pretty. (Here’s where that whole “little bit sexy” thing comes into play.) The fabrication of this bra, like the Elation leggings, makes it ideal for mat workouts or cooler weather. A little thicker than your typical performance fabric, with a soft, sueded hand that’s almost luxurious. Medium support, which is great for yoga or Pilates, but I wear it running too, and it does the job. I’m typically a 34C — wearing my usual Vuori size, small.
Clean Elevation Leggings in Stormy Heather // These might be my favorite leggings, ever. I have them in another color, and the two pairs more or less dictate when it’s laundry day. They’re just a wee bit thicker than standard leggings with a super-soft, almost suede-like butteriness, and the wide, high waistband is exceptionally comfy and supportive. I love that the pocket is discreetly tucked into the back of the waistband too, so stashing a phone there (it’s big enough for my iPhone) doesn’t ruin the sleek silhouette. Wearing my usual Vuori size, small.
Cozy Sherpa Jacket in Dune // If you read along here regularly, you might notice that, yes, I now own this fleece jacket in two colors. I’ve had the Charcoal one for a few months now, and it’s what I reach for when we’re headed out to school in the morning, or to the grocery store, or to the playground, or out to the coast trail for a midday pick-me-up. (Essentially all the places.) The slightly oversized, slightly cropped proportions make it feel just current enough — and that little bit of extra volume makes it the perfect jacket to go with leggings. It’s downright cute with jeans too, though — and in the new Dune color, it’s even a little chic. Oh, and the feel of this thing? It’s as soft as you’re imagining: plush, cushy, and almost silky without pilling or feeling snaggy like some fleeces can. Perfection. Wearing my usual Vuori size, small.
On The Couch Or The Trail, Vuori’s Boyfriend Joggers Are Freaking Cute

We’re so spoiled by gorgeous trails around here, friends. This one is just at the top of a little neighborhood not far from the harbor, so it’s an easy little jaunt if I’ve dropped the big kid off at a playdate, or if I just need a few minutes of solitude amidst a day of errands. And the pieces in this outfit are ideally suited for just such a thing.
A matching set always makes you feel deceivingly pulled together — and I swear these boyfriend joggers suggest the idea of curves where none actually exist. With the Cozy Sherpa Jacket in Vuori’s chic new Dune color atop, the overall effect is sassy and streetwear-inspired but with all the comfort of pajamas.

Halo Performance Crop // Another piece that I now own in multiple colors, this little cropped tank is such a wardrobe workhorse. I wear it just as much as a layering piece under sweaters as I do for workouts or hanging around the house. There’s built-in support with removable pads, and it’s easy to slip a strap off my shoulder for nursing too. On my 5’5″ frame, it hits in the most flattering spot — it’s cropped but not overly so, and it doesn’t feel like it’s constantly riding up. The fabric of this is, unsurprisingly, super-soft, stretchy and beyond comfortable. Wearing my usual Vuori size, small.
Boyfriend Joggers // We all have a mad crush on Vuori’s magical Performance Joggers — but these boyfriend joggers? Hoo-boy, are they good. They’re just a bit roomier than the Performance variety, which I assumed would mean they’d feel even more casual. Even loungier. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled them on and realized that the more generous cut makes them not only lounge-worthy but also genuinely cute. Still every bit as comfy and cozy as the original with that famous DreamKnit fabric (that I cannot stop touching!), but the borderline flowy drape feels so current and fun and almost more streetwear-y, in a sense. A high waist means they pair perfectly with Vuori’s cropped tanks too. Wearing my usual Vuori size, small.
Cozy Sherpa Jacket in Dune // I’ve said this all before, but in case you skipped over the first outfit’s details, I’ll drop my thoughts here, again: If you read along here regularly, you might notice that, yes, I now own this fleece in two colors. I’ve had the Charcoal one for a few months now, and it’s what I reach for when we’re headed out to school in the morning, or to the grocery store, or to the playground, or out to the coast trail for a midday pick-me-up. The slightly oversized, slightly cropped proportions make it feel just current enough — and that little bit of extra volume makes it the perfect jacket to go with leggings. It’s downright cute with jeans too, though — and in the new Dune color (essentially a creamy ivory), it’s even a little chic. Oh, and the feel of this thing? It’s as soft as you’re imagining: plush, cushy, and almost silky without pilling or feeling snaggy like some fleeces can. Perfection. Wearing my usual Vuori size, small.
Here’s to allowing ourselves to feel really dang good, friends.
