Sports Clothing Essentials

We love anything sports related in our home. My kids are learning to swim and have weekly swimming lessons. They also take part in sports competitions in school and are very much into anything sporty. As a family, we go skiing when we can. My son loves the slopes and although it is an expensive sport, we try to enjoy it as frequently as possible. When it comes to shopping for sports clothing essentials, I look for clothing that would do the job and last a long time. I like shopping for quality rather than quantity and it is the same when I need to shop for our sports clothing.

The hubby loves his sportswear and is forever adding something new to his collection. He’s currently thinking of getting some new Golf belts from Function 18 and I am sure he will be getting more than golf belts. He goes jogging regularly and hits the gym daily, so his sports clothing is very important.

Comfort is very important when it comes to any type of clothing, and it is no different for sports. In order to enjoy the sport, the clothing has to provide maximum support and comfort. Here are some of my sports clothing essentials –


Running Clothes

Running clothes are very important when it comes to sports clothing. I stay well away from cotton fabrics as they’re not always the best materials for working out. Also, once cotton fabric gets wet, it stays wet, and with sports, we all tend to break out in a sweat at some point. So, I spend a bit more money and opt for running clothes made of a technical fabric with synthetic wicking material. It works better for me.


Running Socks

I also avoid wearing cotton socks because they make my feet sweaty. Instead I go for running socks with a synthetic blend. They work better for me because they help prevent blisters and they keep my feet dry and comfortable.


Supportive Sports Bras

There is nothing more painful than doing a sport related activity without wearing a supportive sports bra. Wearing one of these will ensure you feel more comfortable while you take part in running and other high-impact activities. I have invested in a few sports bras and they come in so handy. It is best to have a couple in your wardrobe because most sports bras need to be replaced after 72 washes and the last thing you want is to find out that your only sports bra does not support your chest area on the day you need it to.

Running Belt

A running belt is another sports clothing essential. They come in so handy for when you’re out on your run, as you can keep your personal items in there, which will leave your hands free. I like going for the roomier belts to hold larger items like my phone, keys, some form of ID, and cash.


These are my sports clothing essentials. I need them to enjoy a day of sports and fun, whether it is at the gym, leisure centre or out on the street.


What do you think of them? Which sport activity do you enjoy the most?

My Winter Wish List

It is getting cold in Cheshire which is okay since I am almost ready for the Winter season. When it comes to my wardrobe for the colder months, I like to ensure I have all I need to slay in style but stay comfortable at the same time. Style and comfort go together in my fashion world, which is why I make sure I have all the fashion winter essentials. I currently have a couple of items I am yet to get on my Winter wish list. Hopefully,the sales in the shops will start soon, so I can grab everything before the chill really hits.

Many of the items on my shopping list are boots and trainers. Some of my old boots have worn out after so many years so they need replacing. I like to invest in good quality footwear because I like them to last, and if they’re also great value for money it’s a win win! This is why you won’t catch me shopping in some shops, as I’ve had to learn the hard way, and when it comes to footwear, it is quality over quantity, every time!

Here are 3 items I am currently lusting after in the footwear department –



Women’s High Biker Style Military Calf Boots With Chunky Block Heel And Lace Up Detail £32.99

I am so in love with these Calf Boots. I really like the high biker style, that’s what caught my eye. Calf length lace up boots are perfect for Winter and since I don’t have a pair like this yet, I would really love to add these to my boots collection.

It would be great styling them with a nice pair of blue jeans and a sweater. The price tag of £32.99 works for me and I like the chunky block heel too!



Women’s Faux Leather Stiletto Heel Riding Calf Boots With Zip Fastening And Pointed Toe £19.99

This pair of boots would look amazing on a night out. I can picture myself wearing these with a little black dress and tights. It can also be paired with a pair of jeans and a dressy top. The pointed toe and zip take the boots to a whole new level.

I can see this style of boots being very popular this Winter season. It is a pair that can easily take you from the office to the bar! And these are very affordable at £19.99.



High Heel Wedge Hi-Top Trainers Ankle Boots £14.99

My Winter wish list for footwear would not be complete without a pair or two of trainers. I currently have my eye on these stunning black high heel wedge hi-top trainers ankle boots. I have a pair like this already, but it is all black. So, grabbing these with a white sole would be a great addition to my trainer collection.

This pair would also come in handy for the school run, having to take two toddlers to school, and get them there on time means we must move very quickly. There is no room for heels, I admire anyone who can walk in heels, let alone run! Trainers like this would do for me thank you.

What do you think of boots and trainers? Did any catch your eye? You can grab these and more on the Uppersole website. They have footwear for men, women and children. So, you can shop footwear for the whole family in one place!
