Thank you Athleta for sponsoring this post
If you girls have caught my previous posts with Athleta, then you know I played competitive soccer growing up and absolutely loved it! It was honestly the backbone to me leading such an active life even as an adult and I’m so grateful that I had the chance to keep with a sport for so long and that my family supported me playing. Being committed to a team, learning about my body’s capability and really learning to love being active was so important for me in feeling like a strong female which I am ALL about!
Now I get to see Ava experience that as she loves being active just as much as I do! So fun seeing her realize her potential through playing sports or even just keeping up with the boys on the playground 😉 She is definitely me when I was a kid but wayyyy sweeter (I had older brothers 😉 ).
We were both really excited to celebrate National Girls & Women in Sports Day with Athleta, as we’ve loved working with them in the past and I truly appreciate all the positive support they give girls! Whether playing soccer together, scootering (her fave), riding bikes or playing tennis, we’re definitely an active family so Athleta fits right in.
And can we talk about how cute their stuff is for both mamas and kiddos? Ava got to choose her look and went straight for these shorts and sweater with the back detail and thumbholes (anyone else’s kids OBSESSED with thumb holes?!). And for the mamas, Athleta has a bunch of fun Spring Active Gear like these teal leggings and white hoodie. You girls know I’m usually in all black everything, so it felt good to add in some fresh colors. I also got the matching sports bra so you’ll definitely be seeing more of this collection in future fitness posts so stay tuned.
I hope Ava keeps loving sports and staying strong and active, and not gonna lie, that she keeps me young by always wanting to support her out there on the field or wherever! We’re already planning a little watch party for the Women’s World Cup this summer which makes it fun to see kickass women doing their thang!
