Athleisure (noun): 1. clothes for everyday wear influenced by sportswear 2. clothes appropriate for athletic or leisure pursuits 

Fashion and comfort seem to go hand in hand these days, have you noticed? Active women want clothing that makes them look and feel good at the same time. From long hours at work, exercise, and home life, it's necessary to have attire that works with all the busy parts of daily life. I mean, how nice is it to throw on a comfortable outfit that is both fashionable and appropriate to wear all day long? 

With nice weather on the way, Bibelot wants to help you make the most of your active lifestyle, which is why we debuted our Athleisure lines this Spring! Read on to see what we have to offer, and stop in one of our shops to pick something up! 

Our clothing department is bursting with new Athleisure styles that are perfect for working out or everyday wear. Stay stylish with fun layering pieces...leggings, cardigans, tanks, joggers, you name it! Clothing lines including Mystree, C'est Moi, Hem & Thread, and M. Rena will keep your wardrobe fresh and unique. Keep your feet cozy with cute sneakers by Clarks and Darn Tough socks, too. 

Don't forget to stay hydrated! Swell water bottles will keep your drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours. They are a stylish way to eliminate the waste of plastic water bottles, plus the company has partnered with UNICEF to help provide water to vulnerable children. Do something good for yourself and for others in need!

Soothe your post-workout aches and pains with Moon Valley Organics Medicinal Salves!
