stitch fix kds new activewear line

Back-to-school season is in full swing, and in the midst of the uncertainty surrounding the opening of schools, mamas are finding it difficult to know what clothing and supplies to purchase.

To kids give kids choice in developing their personal style—whether they're going virtual or heading back to physical school—it's important to invest in quality pieces that will withstand their energetic lifestyle.

So Stitch Fix Kids just provided us with a fun solution with the release of their new activewear line for kids (and it comes in sizes from 2T to 18).

The new RUNWAY collection takes the stress out of buying workout clothes for your kids by providing style, expression and quality all in one. The line is centered around the idea of pushing our little ones to achieve their goals and reach their highest potential, all while sporting quality workout clothing that expresses their personal style. After learning that girls were avoiding strictly gendered styles and boys were open to wearing bright colors, the company incorporated a unique, diverse cast of kids and athletic clothing to choose from.

These trendy new pieces feature hoodies, shorts and hats that include motivational phrases like "attack the glass" and "you are limitless" to keep kids inspired and build their confidence.

To help give mama's more bang for their buck, each piece in the line includes quick dry technology to keep kids comfy and dry while having fun.

Stitch Fix Kids RUNWAY line is deconstructing gender norms in fashion and empowering kids to push boundaries all through clothes—and we love that. If you want to give it a try, schedule a fix to get started with a few pieces.

We independently select and share the products we love—and may receive a commission if you choose to buy. You've got this.

They say necessity is the mother of invention—and nothing makes you more inventive than motherhood.

Sometimes that means fashioning a diaper out of paper towels and your older child's underpants (true story). Sometimes that means creating an innovative and life-changing weighted baby sleep sack and totally crushing it on Shark Tank. Tara Williams is the latter.

Is the Belly Bandit helpful for postpartum recovery?

I personally found myself wanting more core support in my early postpartum months.

My belly has been through some things.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum (yep, severe debilitating pregnancy-related vomiting), the pregnancies of each of my four kids, the 65 pounds of weight gain I have endured with each pregnancy, stretch marks, Occupational Therapy for pregnancy pelvic pain, unmedicated childbirth, and of course, postpartum recovery.

It's my personal opinion that this belly deserves some love. So starting with my second pregnancy, I've relied on Belly Bandit's postpartum belly bands (which I own in three sizes) to help support my core, reduce swelling, and begin to activate my midsection after nine months of being stretched to the max.

Here's why I love Belly Bandit:

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to have kids—so here’s what I did

We asked our three most pessimistic friends who have kids whether it's worth it or not

As told to Liz Tenety.

Around the time my husband and I were turning 30, we had a genuine conversation about whether or not we wanted kids. I was the hesitant one because I was like, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's just hold on. Okay, let's talk about this. Because we love our life. We like traveling. Is this what we want?"

My husband said, "Let's ask our three most pessimistic, crabby friends who have kids whether or not it's worth it."

And every single one of them was like, "Oh, it's unmissable on planet earth."

So when I got pregnant, I was—and I'm not ashamed to say this and I don't think you should be—I was as connected with the baby in my belly as if it were a water bottle. I was like, I don't know you. I don't know what you are, but you can be some gas pain sometimes, but other than that, we're going to have to meet each other and suss this relationship out.

But all the cliches are true that you just know what to do when the baby comes out. Some of the times are hard, some of them are easier, but you just gotta use your gut.
