Featured Image No, I didn’t just get back from a run and you won’t catch me in the gym doing yoga. But you better believe if I’m not at work or out to a fancy dinner I will be rocking a t-shirt and leggings almost everywhere. I’m a new mom and was lucky enough to become one in the era of athleisure wear. I’ve legitimately broken a sweat putting my one-year-old in a car seat. Therefore, I wear yoga pants and I feel justified. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not just rolling out of bed (okay sometimes I am, because you know, newborn = no sleep) but if you haven’t noticed athleisure stores and athletic clothes departments have blown up in the last few years and darned if they don’ t make some cute clothes! They’re stylish enough to wear outside the gym and most important, they’re super comfy. My advice to new moms buying new clothes is this: I didn’t know how my post baby body would be, so I held off on buying any new clothes throughout most my pregnancy and a few months after. I will tell you now, the majority of my clothing budget is now going to a new pair of running shoes and yoga pants. Because chasing a toddler warrants cross training gear and I want to be comfortable (but also cute) doing it. Audra F. Hi, I’m Audra! I’m a marketing specialist here at VACU. I joined VACU right out of college at VCU 5 years ago. In that time, I got engaged, married my college sweetheart and had two babies; a girl and a boy. I’ve learned a lot about finances working at the credit union, but even more from navigating these life changes. So I’m excited to share my personal financial journey with you and what I’m learning along the way. Other stories by Audra F.
