I feel like there is a stigma about moms in yoga pants. I’m not new to stigma being a migraine sufferer so whatever. I wear yoga pants when I’m not in yoga and I say it loud and proud. Yes, I pick my daughter up from school, then go to the grocery store and maybe Target. I’m the stereotypical stay at home mom holding down a household, a family and putting my looks low on my list. But why do I need to dress up to avoid judgmental looks or feel “pretty”? Here’s why I wear athletic gear when I’m not being athletic.
1. My kids
Example: I’m washing lunch dishes, “Excuse me, did you just wipe your mouth on my leg when you walked by?”
“No mom, I blew my nose.”
Dry clean only clothes aren’t good with boogers or any other bodily fluids that I am exposed to every day.
Example 2: I play Barbies, trucks, puzzles, and more on the floor. I need clothes that don’t allow my booty to hang out. My clothes need to move since I move. I’m not sitting at a desk, I’m climbing playground equipment, riding bikes and getting dirty.
Example 3: I’m sorry to say it, but I’ve had two children and it’s more comfortable to be in clothes that stretch. I don’t want to feel disappointed every day because I can’t fit into clothes that don’t fit or look the way they used to. I want to wear what’s comfortable and not be restricted by jeans that are too tight or a top that might creep up and show my stomach. I need comfort, wash ability, and something that inspires me to work out.
2. Work out inspiration
If I’m ready to go workout, I’m more likely to do it. If I’m wearing makeup and look nice, the chances of me trying to fit in a workout are less likely. If I’m dressed and ready to go, I’m more likely to find 20 minutes in my day to do something. If I have a chance to walk around the block to clear my mind by myself I’m taking it and I don’t have time to spare. A bit dramatic, but you get what I mean.
3. My migraines
Life is exhausting! I battle migraines and pain constantly. I wear comfortable clothes because being sick and uncomfortable isn’t something I want to do. If I get a chance to sit or lay down, I just want to be comfortable. While I’m curled up in a ball and battling a migraine I don’t want any restrictions.
So basically, I need clothes that make me feel good and look good while living a dirty busy active life. Here comes the exciting news! I have been asked to be a Nina B. Roze ambassador!!!

Nina is a designer based and made out of Los Angeles. I love that! She started her company out of her mom’s garage and wants to inspire women to live healthy and active lifestyles through her designs. The fabrics are really comfortable and I feel great about representing her brand. Her motto is “sport your pretty.” What a great idea! Just because I’m busy and active doesn’t mean I can’t be pretty. I think her workout clothes are so cute and I plan to sport my pretty in more than just the gym. Sorry stigma, I can be comfortable, sporty, and still be pretty.
What I like so much about the Nina B Roze brand is that she believes all of us are pretty. I am far from a sportswear model! I have chronic migraines and suffer a lot. I have days I can’t get out of bed which is not what you expect from someone being an ambassador of fitness apparel. In fact, the day I took this hike, I was up for 3 hours prior to going icing, medicating and fighting a migraine. I am real, I am addicted to sugar and my favorite cuisine is bar food. I try to live a balanced life the best I can and start each day with the perspective that I’m going to do my best and that’s all I can do. You’ll see me being me. And guess what? I can sport pretty too. I like that Nina sees my beauty although my health is not perfect, my diet is a bit of a mess and I may have boogers on my pants.
Thank you for making me feel pretty when sometimes I see my pain and it’s hard to look past. Thank you for asking me to be a part of a community that I may not traditionally fit into but am happy to be in.
