Is it really okay to wear yoga pants all day long?

I was at a children’s birthday party recently. Our kids are still at the age where we stay throughout the duration of the party. And, one of my “mom” friends showed up wearing her tennis outfit. We asked if she had just finished playing. Her answer: “No, I was running errands.”

How many of you have been guilty of this? Wearing gym clothes with no intentions of ever going to the gym? I’m raising my hand. 15 years ago, I would never have done this. Why? I really don’t know. My motto has always been fashion over comfort. It still is… but athleisure wear (as it’s now called, not simply gym clothes) has become really fashionable!

I mean check out these comfortable beauties from Apricot Lane!

The South Florida boutiques are owned by a Boynton Beach husband and wife whose son also helps do the buying. I had the opportunity to meet him while on my most recent trip to their Delray Marketplace location.

“We always stay on top of the fashion trends so our merchandise selection changes frequently and we make our customers our first priority to ensure that every visit will be a fun experience and an opportunity to dress in the latest fashions and find something new,” explained Barry Shapiro, owner of Apricot Lane Delray Beach. “We can react instantly to our customers requests and bring in the exact items they are looking for.”

This specialty fashion boutique is the leading destination for customers who truly appreciate quality and fashion forward designs at friendly prices, not to mention amazing customer service. The staff helped me put together these awesome athleisure outfits! At Apricot Lane, you’ll find each item comes in only about 2 smalls, 2 mediums and 2 larges so when they’re gone, they’re gone. I experienced this first hand. I had the graphic tee “Drinks Well with Others” in my fitting room and another customer inquired about the size because there was only one other shirt on the sales floor. Thankfully, mine was too small for her. I’ve dubbed this tee the best graphic t-shirt ever!

Apricot Lane has a variety of graphic tees which are also a big trend. Why wouldn't they be? You can wear them with yoga pants or up the casual factor with jeans and booties. Another favorite I tried on was “Naps, Wine & Weekends.”

If you want to add to your athleisure collection without breaking the budget, we have some great news! April is Athleisure Month at Apricot Lane. You can whip your style into shape with 20% off all athleisure items in the store. Just mention our blog post or show them the coupon below. 

So back to the question at hand: Is it really okay to wear yoga pants all day long? ABSOLUTELY! Especially if being stylish and comfortable is your goal. Do you agree?
