This past week, I sat in my new hair stylist’s chair and vented (as one does to their stylist, bless them) about how terrible I did at packing for my move across the country, and how surprised I am at my wardrobe not feeling like it transitioned easily to this new place.
Her response was gold.
“Honestly, you really only need [performance] apparel here. Vuori — have you heard of Vuori? Everyone is just wearing that.”
I immediately knew that I was in the right city and the right stylist’s chair.
Vuori’s Comfort-Focused Performance Apparel Is All I Want To Wear
If you’ve read any of my posts this past month, you know I’ve been on a journey of sorts.
A journey of figuring out what the heck to wear.
The climate of the town I left compared with the place we moved to is…different.
I’m talking really different — from one of the coldest and snowiest regions of the United States (I’m not being dramatic, that is an actual statistic) to a city that gets zero inches of snow a year and sees an above-average number of sunny days.
But one section of my wardrobe hasn’t been as difficult to transition, and it’s been my saving grace for getting dressed this past month.
Vuori’s performance apparel has made the entire upheaval of my life a whole lot easier.
I suppose the reason Vuori pieces have felt like an easy go-to in this new city and climate is because the only transition of sorts that’s needed for this section of my closet is forgoing the winter puffer layered over the top (and the second layer of leggings on my legs…and the two pairs of socks in my sneakers…and the beanie…oy).
But if you do have to layer? Vuori’s buttery soft fabrics make it really easy (I did it for years).
3 Ways I’m Keeping Active In Vuori Outfits This Fall + Winter
Vuori’s clothes are versatile in the sense that I can feel confident wearing them as an actual outfit to go about my day, and they actually perform well when it’s both sunny and cloudy, on chilly mornings next to the ocean and sweaty afternoons in the backyard.
Reaching for Vuori is a no-brainer in snow-globe Michigan and sunny San Diego (and Vuori joggers are pretty legendary).
Plus, Vuori’s seasonal colors right now are GOOD, and it’s hard wanting to wear anything but the Chestnut and Ruby palettes with fall in full swing.
1. Running Steps In The Vuori Performance Jogger & Halo Crew
My husband grew up in San Diego, and we’ve spent many vacations visiting here over the years. During those trips I discovered the hundreds of staircases that lead down to the ocean and how epic they are for doing laps to get your heart rate up.
I’m so excited to now have these steps to run whenever I want them. I’ve been admittedly out of running shape for awhile, and this is just the thing I needed to get me back on track.
Plus, the views don’t hurt.
Vuori’s Performance Jogger is legit the softest jogger on the planet. While it is the Queen of Lounging, I also love it for intense workouts because of how extremely lightweight it is.
The Long-Sleeve Halo Crew is made with the same epic DreamKnit™️ material as the joggers, making this combination one of the best workout outfits (AND daily lounging outfit).
2. Post-Surf Warmup In The Vuori Boyfriend Jogger & Halo Performance Hoodie 2.0
I love surfing.
I’m totally terrible at it, but I’ve been slowly learning over the years of being married to my husband (a man who was raised on the sport). One of my favorite things related to surfing, which might sound strange, is being chilled after spending time in the ocean.

There’s nothing like the feeling of wrapping up in a hoodie with salty wet hair, dropping off the boards at the car, and going to find a coffee. It’s one of the ways I enjoy finding “cozy” within a very sunny, warm city.
The Vuori Boyfriend Jogger has actually inched its way to the top of my list, above the cult-favorite Performance Jogger.

Both joggers are made with the same material and are essentially the same pants, just different in the actual fit. I love the slightly extra bagginess to the Boyfriend Jogger — it reminds me more of classic sweatpants and is a tad easier to slip on with salty skin.
3. Morning Walks In The Vuori Daily Legging & Cozy Sherpa Jacket
Speaking of “finding cozy,” Vuori’s Cozy Sherpa Jacket is not to be missed. Em raved about its “silky plush softness” a few months back, so I was eager to get my hands on it too.
She wasn’t wrong. The Cozy Sherpa Jacket is the ultimate comfort.
I’ve even had a few mornings here where the temps dipped low enough that I actually needed to wrap myself up in the fleece for a morning walk. The jacket is ideal when I’m simply needing to stretch my legs and not work up a sweat. Of course, it’s perfect for nonactive moments too AND totally cute with all the casual outfits.
So, moral of the story? If you’re in a transition, feel stuck with your closet, or simply need some of the best physical (maybe even emotional) comfort: Vuori. Always Vuori.
