You’ve likely noticed we’re fortunate enough to do quite a few collaborations here at The Mom Edit. Hopefully you’ve also noticed that, thanks to S, we’re really discerning about the partners we work with, striving for authenticity in all of our posts and only linking up with brands and products that we genuinely love to freaking bits. For me, this partnership with FP Movement at DICK’S Sporting Goods is as genuine as it gets.

DICK’S Sporting Goods has been a go-to destination for my active pursuits ever since I first set foot inside one when I lived in Ohio. Ohio winters are bleak as can be, so every year I’d proceed to DICK’S to re-energize my gym wardrobe (side note: remember gyms!?) with bright new running tights, strappy bras and a not-too-puffy jacket to top it off. It was a ritual of sorts. Or maybe seasonal therapy. (A little of both, perhaps.)

FP Movement Workout Gear & Hiking Clothes That Work On & Off The Trail

I haven’t set foot in a gym since moving back to California, but that hasn’t curbed my habit of using a few fresh new fitness duds as an incentive to get moving. The only difference is that now my workouts take place in the comfort of my own home or on a local trail, and most of my seasonal DICK’S Sporting Goods sprees are made online. No complaints from me on either front.

I’ve long-loved all things Free People and FP Movement. The FP Movement mantra “Fitness, Wellness, Happiness” is an easy one to get on board with, and every FP Movement piece I’ve ever owned has boasted an unexpected detail that feels playful or sassy — in the kind of way that makes you actually want to get dressed to work out.

The two workout ‘fits I’ve been loving from FP Movement lately couldn’t be more different from one another, yet they’ve both seen me through a few really fun experiences as I attempt to reclaim a bit of me-time. The first is a strappy onesie that — put simply — I was not expecting to like at all. (Spoiler alert: I was pleasantly surprised.) And the second revolves largely around a pair of pants that shouldn’t be flattering in the least but are actually super-wearable and practical both on the trail and off. These FP Movement outfits are made to sweat in, yet have the stylish details of streetwear.

Two completely different looks, but both are made for movement and feeling really, really good.

This “outfit” for — lack of a better word — would typically be so totally out of my comfort zone. The FP Movement Back It Up Onesie is not just snug but super body contouring, and the cool (and yeah, a little spicey) back shows plenty of skin. But somehow when it’s on the body, it feels neither too provocative or too constricting. Instead, it’s just super pretty, with enough compression to smooth and support where it counts. A new favorite.

FP Back It Up Onesie was fun for trail runs & ideal for the Pilates routines I try to squeeze in at home.

I was able to tuck wireless headphones into one of the little corner pockets of the FP Movement Runner Sling.

Back It Up Onesie (wearing an XS): This onesie is gorgeous on the models, so I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself. And then I opened the package and audibly guffawed. It’s far more compressive than I was expecting, so in my hands it looked teensy. In fact, as I was pulling it up, it felt teensy. And then I got it on, and well, I actually felt really freaking amazing in it. Should I probably have gone one size up? Yes, probably. (So yes, if you’re between sizes, I’d suggest going up.) But even on the snug side, it’s comfortable, moves easily, and made me feel pretty dang invincible. It’s a fun one to wear for trail walks and runs, but I found it was really ideal for the mat Pilates routines I try to squeeze in where I can at home. The super fitted silhouette made it easier to be conscious of my form, so even my favorite 15-min workout felt boosted and more effective.

Runner Sling: Ok, I’m always looking for a way to sleekly add a non-nerdy pocket to my running ensembles, so I love this. This slim, stretchy pack sits easily on the waist or hips and sleekly fits a phone, hair tie, lip balm and credit cards. Plus I was able to tuck wireless headphones into one of the little corner pockets and a couple of keys in the other. Literally just for the essentials but perfect in its comfort and simplicity.

Movement Stripe Tube Sock: Some of the plushest, softest socks I’ve worn, with a little extra stretch so they don’t sag. And I love the classic striping.


These Seriously Good Hiking Pants Double As Effortlessly Cool Streetwear

As shocked as I was by my love for the slinky little onesie up there, I was equally unsurprised by my adoration for this crop top + stylish-utility-pant combo, which is predictably smack dab in the middle of the schleppy chic comfort zone. I love an outfit that pulls its weight double-duty, and this one does just that. Perfectly suited for the trail (true story: I actually strapped on the baby and hiked for a few solid hours in this exact outfit when our photoshoot ended, and everything performed as advertised…) but as streetwear it also looks effortlessly cool. The pants, of course, being the real star of the show.

These Seriously Good Hiking Pants Double As Effortlessly Cool Streetwear.

These relaxed tapered pants are so very cool. From trail to city, no problem.
The irregular, swingy hem adds so much fun interest and movement.
These trekking pants have lots of playful details like the oversized grommets in the waistband + the loads of pockets.
I love a long sleeve layer with a longer cuff & thumbholes.

Spring Trekker Pant (wearing an XS): These relaxed tapered pants are so very cool, friends. Lots of volume throughout, including the seat, but instead of looking diaper-y, they just look easygoing and, well, chill. (We all know I could use some chill these days, what with the babe at home and all.) Lots of playful details in them, too, like the oversized grommets in the waistband — and the loads of pockets. From a functionality standpoint, the tapered leg allows you to easily pull your socks right on over the hem of your pants just in case you’re going through pokey brush, trails overgrown with poison oak, or, my favorite, grassy tick territory. The voluminous fit means they’re not too hot — and the fabric is surprisingly soft and drapey. Plus, I personally just really enjoy the vibe these put forth. I’d just as easily reach for these for morning drop-off (a cooler alternative to joggers, for sure). Size down if between.

Free Throw Crop (wearing a S, TTS): Like something between a sports bra and a tank, this top is one I could easily see wanting to own in several colors (and it comes in a million). The fabrication is thick enough that it can be worn on its own as a workout top if you have smaller boobs, but it would also be super cute under an oversized chambray shirt or a pair of overalls.

Breezy Tempo Long Sleeve (wearing an XS, TTS): The slinky fabric of this top is so perfect for layering — but stick to something sleeveless underneath because the sleeves are slim. It’s super breathable and light, and the color couldn’t be more perfect for summer. (It’s also available in white or black, which I could see looking really ballet-chic over all manner of leggings or bike shorts #balletcore.) The irregular, swingy hem adds so much fun interest and movement. And I love anything with a longer cuff and thumbholes. Yes.

Runner Sling: Ok, I’m always looking for a way to sleekly add a non-nerdy pocket to my running ensembles, so I love this. This slim, stretchy pack sits easily on the waist or hips and sleekly fits a phone, hair tie, lip balm and credit cards. Plus I was able to tuck wireless headphones into one of the little corner pockets and a couple of keys in the other. Literally just for the essentials but perfect in its comfort and simplicity.

Movement Stripe Tube Sock: Some of the plushest, softest socks I’ve worn, with a little extra stretch so they don’t sag. And I love the classic striping.


Two totally different vibes, and yet both are outfits that have me buzzing to get moving again, whether it’s on the mat or on the trail. (Update: even if it’s only a trail that leads to the coffee shop — which is where the pants took me this morning.)

Cheers, friends.

  1. The older I get, the more important it is to me that I shop at companies (as much as possible – sigh, Amazon) that align with my values. To which I say: hooray for Dick’s, which stopped selling certain guns after the Parkland shooting, spurring other retailers to do the same, and was one of the first companies (that I read about, at least) to announce benefits for employees who need to travel out of state to obtain an abortion. Thanks for this post!

    • Yes! I completely agree. It’s policy not to discuss social/political issues within the body of these collaborative posts (even when it could be to the company’s benefit!) but it’s 1000% one of the reasons I jumped at the opportunity. Well, that and the fact that I truly have a soft spot for both FP and DICK’S. Thanks for reading!
