Mom life has been getting a bad wrap for yoga pants for sometime now. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve rocked the yoga pants more than I should have. Somedays putting on “pants” can be a real effort. Thanks to Bench. I’ve got a new love! I can wear my comfortable pants, and with a few simple accessories dress them up or down.
Being a mom of two young active girls; comfort and ease of movement is essential. On the other hand as a blogger, I also need to be presentable. In Vancouver, you never know who you might end up speaking with, or who you may run into. As you venture out of your house on those rare occasions, it’s important to put your best outfit forward!
Much like the term Mom life, Ath-leisure is a new term the employee’s of Bench. Metrotown have coined. Maybe someone else came up with the terms, however, they are rocking the term by making it relatable for women of all ages to shop comfortably within the Bench. Collections. Originally I had my mind set that Bench. was much like Billabong, RipCurl etc, which always came across as a “younger” brand! I was incredibly pleased to find out I was WRONG!
The Omnipresent trousers won over my comfort-loving heart. With a textured appearance, the comfort of sweat pants, and the style options make them easily dressed up or down. Complete with two Zippered pockets in the front making it easy to run out the door. I paired it up with my number one staple, a simple black tank and then finished it off with the creme de la creme the Melancholist Sweater in Marl Grey. This Sweater exudes comfort and is perfect for cuddling up on the couch, running out the door to do errands. It has one button closer to the top of the sweater to easily disguise the usual yogurt spill that somehow finds its way onto my shirt. With two deep pockets on either side, this sweater earned its place in my closet and closet!
As a final point, new Summer Collection from Bench. has proven that style can still be comfortable and mom life isn’t all yoga pants. We can have both, style and comfort. Lastly we can be moms, busy and on the go and look damn good while doing it!
