From Kicking Butt to Kicking Back | Matalan Activewear

When i hit my kickboxing gym i’m packed into my top of the range lycra bottoms, super supportive sports bra and high performance trainers. But sometimes you just have one of those days where you just need something a little slouchier.

I didn’t really own any ‘leisurewear‘ before Matalan got in touch with their new range of Activewear clothing but i have to say i’m a total convert! Gone are the days of sitting in my PJ’s for hours on end because i can’t face squashing my bottom into a pair of skinny jeans or rocking a tight collard jumper. I got myself a pair of Matalan’s Tapered Jogging Bottoms* with a Slouchy Round Neck Tee* and i haven’t looked back since! Now i have to admit, i’ve been using mine more for as leisurewear than activewear since they dropped through my door but i’ve been completely loving them and I can now slouch around the house in actual clothes and be comfy rather than feeling like a student again in my pyjamas from morning till night! I’m totally tempted to get myself another pair of joggers too, especially seeing as their two for £15 right now…it would be rude not to right?

Although i’ve used my joggers and tee just for slouching so far they would be great for those of you looking to get active but don’t want to splash the cash on a pair of £40 bottoms straight away. So instead of showing you a picture of me flopping around in mine (if you’d like to see that they are in fact briefly featured in my weekend vlog HERE!) i thought i’d put together a little mood board to show you just how far your gym gear fund can stretch with the whole lot above coming in at just £40 all in! No excuses now ladies, although be warned, you might not make it to the gym when you get your legs into these joggers…they’re just so soft and comfy!

Do you own any leisurewear? Am i really that late to the slouchy bottom party?
