Wunderlusting about Athleisure - Pish to Posh

Wunderlusting about Athleisure

So the last post was a bit heavy and I appreciate all the support and love!  Big changes often times bring BIG emotions- and sorting those all out takes time!

But now,

Lets chat about something a bit more fun!  My wunderlust.  I mean, seriously, I have this itch to travel, to explore, to see the world.  I am not sure when it started or really what triggered it but it is real now!  I am constantly googling place to travel, looking at pictures and I follow some amazing photographers on Instagram that are a huge inspiration. That desire had obviously been feed very well living in London but now I am ready to explore the country of my origin.  So, I am putting together a quick list of the places I want to see before the end of 2017- all within the United States.  Any additional suggestions are welcomed!!

shop the look: leggings // sweatshirt // tee // trainers // bag // sunnies

If there was ever an outfit to get me inspired to travel this is it!!!  I wore this last Saturday for the 18 hours journey home.  Just because you feel terrible traveling does not mean you have to look it.  I am obsessed with these faux leather leggings and I purchased them in London I have linked several <similar> <similar> that will be just as perfect.  I wear these all the time!!!  Perfect for travel as they are elastic waist, comfortable and sleek.  I know, I look a bit like a Nike spokesperson but I am not.  But when I find a sweatshirt that is long enough to be worn with leggings and still hold some semblances of style I pounce!!  This baby fit the bill.  The metallic logo on this sweatshirt adds a bit of grilynes that I love.  I threw on a long light weight tunic for some added layering and warmth (I get cold on airplanes).  Perfect tee for everyday.  These trainers have been around the block a few times and I am uber happy I purchased them last fall.  They are comfortable and so incredibly light weight it feels like I am not even wearing shoes.  The bag– enough said.  While it is rare to wear sunnies in London (where these photos were taken) I plan to go to a lot sunny places to cure my wunderlusting.  The essential Ray-Bans.

ON to the list:
  • Boston, MA
  • Washington D.C.- while I have been there I would like to return now that I am older.
  • Memphis, TN
  • Charleston, SC
  • Jackson Hole, WY- preferably in the winter to ski.

I told it was short!  Plus I have a toddler and while he loves to travel this mama likes to travel without him so my list needed to be realistic.  It would be next to impossible to take a trip every single month.  I have also been working on being intentional and therefore I wanted to create a list that included place I can learn something new (Memphis and the roots of music), places where I might feel like I am experiencing a different culture (Charleston), places where I can revisit my past (Washington D.C.), places where I can do something I love (Jackson Hole) and a place that just looks cool (Boston) !  I think Boston and Washington DC will be family trips so Declan will continue to be a traveling toddler!!  I hope he grows up with the same wunderlust I have.

The world is your Oyster…. I intent to find my pearl!

With Love,

    This is my first time to your blog and I’m so fascinated! You’ve been living in London?! I guess I need to go read the previous post because I’m so interested! If I were you I would probably be so sad too, but also ready for a new chapter! And by the way – your hair is AMAZING! You are one lucky girl!

    I’m with you there! I was planning on visiting Washington DC this year for cherry blossom season and to potentially run a half marathon. Two of my close friends have visited Charleston, SC and loved it!

      Washington DC for cherry blossoms is exactly where I need to be!!! Good luck with the half- that’s commitment!

    I’m so behind– you’ve moved back from London?! I went back and read your other posts from before and more recent to catch up. London will always be a place I consider home and I know the heartbreak involved in leaving it behind. I hope you’re adjusting back to American life again. All the best in this next chapter!
