Before I had kids, I always said – given the choice – I would choose an all-boys household over all-girls. I grew up with only sisters and always wanted a brother. I was definitely more of a tomboy than a girly-girl, so I figured raising boys would be easier. (Ha!) Now that I have a little girl, I couldn’t be happier. Isabelle is the absolute sweetest little thing and I love that she wants to be exactly like her mama. Whenever I wear something that she has something similar to, she immediately requests she change into said outfit. So when I discovered Flexi Lexi and their adorable range of mommy and me yoga leggings, I jumped right on that bandwagon. Twinning with Isabelle has the added benefit that she always wants to workout with me. So my tips to all you mamas out there wondering how to incorporate your kiddos into your workout routine: buy them matching workout clothes. Haha. But seriously, whenever I talk about yoga now, Isabelle says she wants to put on her flamingo pants and do yoga with me. Amazing.
If you want to join in on this fun twinning opportunity (and get yourself a little workout partner in the process), below are my top 5 matching mommy and me workout leggings:
Flexi Lexi Flamingo Yoga Leggings . The women’s version comes in just 2 sizes but fits a waist range of 22″-33″ (I’m wearing the larger size). They’re seriously the stretchiest and most comfortable workout leggings I own. And the high waist stays put without cutting in. Amazing. Their have a mini version (and the larger girls version) that fits ages 3-13.
Sadhana Leaf Workout Leggings . Sadhana is another brand that has several matching workout leggings. These leaf-print leggings are such a pretty print and I love the tropical colours. The girls version fits ages 5-13.
Flexi Lexi Pineapple Yoga Leggings . Flexi Lexi seriously has the cutest prints for mommy and me. This pineapple print is currently at the top of my wishlist. Just like all of their matching leggings, the women’s version comes in 2 sizes and the mini version (and the larger girls version) fits ages 3-13.
Joe Fresh All Over Print Active Leggings . I recently discovered Joe Fresh Active and, I have to say, I’m loving every piece I’ve bought. I used to be a bit of a workout gear snob, with mainly Lululemon and Nike in my closet, but in the past several years so many more affordable brands have come out with amazing workout clothing at a fraction of the cost. Joe Fresh has an activewear range that includes a lot of matching pieces for the entire family but these floral-print leggings are my current favourite. The matching girls leggings are for ages 6-14.
Pineapple Topical Dream Lucy Performance Leggings . I’m obsessed with all things palm print right now, so of course I’m in love with these palm print leggings. The girls version is available from 18 months to age 16.
