What To Wear For Walking
My new outfit I got for walking and my fitness routine. I love my new leggings and layering my tops for going outdoors. Along with a few tried and true items I use all the time and I am sharing!
- I got these Joy Lab Leggings they have a handy pocket. I love pockets in my leggings to slide my house key or cell phone into. Do you?
Shop all the legging styles here.
- This is my new sweatshirt – New Day Sweatshirt in a rust color. I also spotted this fleece quarter zip sweatshirt for women! It is in my shopping cart now.
- Underneath I wear Realtree Shirt (Base layer thermal top.) It is lightweight. The features of these long sleeve tops are they are made for: running, walking, everyday wear. Have moisture-wicking fabric with stretch. SPF 50+ Machine Wash and Tumble Dry.) Or grab this Champion All In Motion. Both are must-haves and keep you warm without being bulky. Under that I add a tank top or racerback bra. If you like the longer back on the shirt to wear with leggings grab this drapy long sleeve shirt.
- I prefer No show athletic socks. Do you?
- And these Women’s Sport Sneakers. They are great for walking, hiking and crosstraining.
- We do a lot of coastal walks and hikes, and river trail hiking (see our list of favorite walks and hikes at the end of the post) too. We like a hiking boot like this.
- If you didn’t get a fitness tracker for a gift. You might want to check them out now!
Must-Haves For Walking And Hiking
- Bring your cell phone (fully charged). And charger for your car.
- Never forget to bring a Water bottle (These are our favorite water bottles that are BPA free…)
- Day hike backpack or sling bag. We have both types.
- A packable windbreaker.
- My favorite lightweight, water-resistant, packable hooded puffer jacket. (You might want to size up if you want to wear bulky sweatshirts and lots of layers under the puffer jacket. I didn’t size up. They are pretty true to size.) These are great for foggy or cold days/evenings. Layering and packing into your bag for when you don’t need it. I purchased mine in navy and love it!
- Healthy snacks are great for long walks and hikes.
