Something y’all hear me talk about (and see on Stories!) a lot is my daily 30-minute walking routine. This is a habit I started a handful of years ago – before Four and even before Duncan! Since it’s become such a big and important part of my daily routine, I thought I’d break down why I love it, what it does for me personally, how it’s become great family time outside since Four arrived, and, of course, share what I like to wear when I do it!
Like I said, walks have been part of my routine for a while now. I initially started going on them because they just help me clear my head and kind of escape Brighton brain (if ya know, ya know). Honestly, just getting outside and out of the house and away from my computer does SO much for me. It kind of all started because one day I just decided I’d walk around my neighborhood and I loved the feeling so much I started doing it daily! You can even bring headphones and listen to a podcast or a book – I used to do that all the time and still will if I’m going alone.
Once D came into the picture, we started walking together and it really became something we both looked forward to. I highly recommend it – it’s a great opportunity to connect with your significant other and talk about anything important and just touch base. Now that we have Four, we LOVE taking him out on walks and he enjoys it so much too. It’s a habit I really hope we can continue as Four gets older and use it as dedicated family time.
As for what I like to wear, I partnered with Backcountry on this post and had so much fun putting together two of my ideal walking outfits to share with y’all. It’s very hot in Dallas right now so I decided to go with shorts for both looks, but let’s start with the biker shorts outfit!
I’m obsessed with this brand right now, which is one of the things I love most about Backcountry – they have so many amazing brands for any outdoor activity! Whether you’re a runner, like to go hiking, etc., they have something for you! I paired the biker shorts with this cropped tank, and y’all, you need this tank! It fits perfectly with any high-waisted bottoms and Backcountry carries it in so many colors. Starting to think I need one of each!
For my second look, I knew I couldn’t go wrong with these running shorts (similar here). The material is amazing and definitely helps to keep you cool when it’s super hot out. Also love the thick waistband on them – feels very supportive without being constricting. I paired it with this tank, which got my attention because of the cute back and built-in bra. Very comfortable and the material is moisture-wicking so it’s perfect for being outside in the summertime! And then I couldn’t resist these Hoka runnings shoes. They’re so comfortable and the colors are so fun!
This fanny pack is also so cute and perfect whether you need it for snacks, sunscreen, or maybe a baby necessity or two! It works perfectly for our family walks so I can have everything I need on me while still being hands-free – highly recommend this whether you have kids with you or not!
I hope y’all enjoyed this and that it might inspire you to get outside this summer and start a family walking routine of your own! Use code BRIGHTON15 for 15% off your first purchase (exclusions apply).
