Today’s sponsored post is by Athleta and Shop Style Collective is about my VERY FAVORITE BRAND!
If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, then you know I SWEAR BY ATHLETA. I have been a devout customer for years and years and year. I have been wearing their athletic apparel and their swimsuits exclusively for over a decade. Over the last 14 years and 5,000 blog posts, I bet if you look back, I’m wearing something from Athleta in at least 1000 pictures (if not MORE!!). I legitimately wear it every single day.
I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating…here are a few reasons why Athleta is my very favorite brand…
1: Everything lasts for YEARS. I have pieces in my closet right now that are downright old, but I continue to wear them because they look as good as new. I wash and dry everything after each wear, and they continue to hold up, the colors continue to be vivid, the sizes don’t change (no shrinking), they don’t get stretched out…they last.
2: They fit! No baggy, loose or saggy pieces here. They fit with each wear. I always buy bottoms (swimsuit bottoms, shorts, tights, pants) in an xs and then I buy tops, tanks, sports bras in a small. I also buy jackets and sweatshirts in xs as well.
3: The people in store are super knowledgeable! We got an Athleta store at our local mall just a few years ago (before that, I had been buying everything exclusively online), and the women who work at my store are so helpful! They know exactly what I need for what I’m doing, they always tell me if I need something other than what I’m looking at (something that would perform better), and they’re always oh so sweet!
4: That being said, I do buy online most of the time (because it’s just easier), and it always arrives quickly and if I do have to return/exchange, that’s easy too! I also love their “give it a workout guarantee”. Even if you take the tags off and wear it, if it doesn’t fit and work for you, you can return it. Sometimes, you just do not know if a piece is going to work until you actually try it out…and they understand that.
5: I find their catalog inspiring. Is that weird? Because I do. In fact, I’ve mentioned it on here many times before! Whenever I pick up their catalog in store or receive it by mail, I always LOVE to sit down and flip through because it makes me want to work out more, eat better, go outside, run around with my kids and just be ACTIVE! The women in the catalog make me HAPPY! They have young girls, older women, girls of all sizes, shapes and races. It’s just filled with healthy looking women doing amazing things from rock climbing to surfing to yoga and more. I LOVE IT!
So, for this post, they asked me to feature their current SEMI-ANNUAL SUMMER SALE! Their Summer Semi-Annual Sale starts July 15th where you can save up to 60% off!

If you’re ever curious about my day-to-day routine over here, you better believe, it involves me wearing head to toe Athleta…
…at my desk…
…on my balcony…
…reading and doing my quiet time…
…walking my dogs and of course…
…out playing with my kids! Ha! My big kids were outside doing the agility ladder, so I clumsily joined in.
Of course, a sweatshirt on top is the coziest way to work around the house for me!
I have the Renew Racerback Tank in two colors because I love it so much! It’s great for every form of exercise I do from running to yoga, rowing, strength training, walking, cycling and more!
I was searching the word “Athleta” on my blog to see how many times I found it, and there are 33 posts alone where I specifically call it out! Last week, on my podcast (which I recorded many weeks ago), I even named it my favorite place of all time for buying swimsuits and then this week, on our FITNESS episode, I talk about how much I love Athleta again. It truly is my favorite brand 🙂 .
I found this paragraph here in an older post of mine which made me chuckle…
I want to hear your feedback! Do you love Athleta too? Do you flip through the catalog and want to kayak or surf? Um, I do. True story, I am always asking Andrew for a kayak for Mother’s Day to kayak across the lake in our neighborhood. He’s always like “how are you going to walk a kayak down to the lake?”, and I’m always like “I don’t know? The Athleta girls do it!”. See? They inspire me 🙂 .
That made me lol because once again in 2021, I asked for a kayak yet again, but this time, my sweet hubby wised up after all of these years and bought me…
…a rowing machine instead 🙂 . How funny is that?!
So much Athleta love today! I hope I’m raising strong girls who find activities they love to keep them healthy and happy too.
