When traveling-- and especially when traveling pregnant--comfort is key. With my increasing focus on finding ways to make gym clothes look intentional and stylish, I've found that color can also be key.

By packing a LOT of white, I could switch up any outfit with little pops of citrus or blue here and there, as I did on this day, when we visited the cool caverns of the Basilica Cistern and the sunny public square between the Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque.

I'm wearing my favorite American-made Paige denim jeans, a super soft tank from ethical brand Alternative Apparel, and a conventional sports bra in hot pink.  The credit for this color combo, though, goes not to the sights and sounds of Istanbul but to the citrus-y, psychedelic hues of my friend Aaryn West's designs. She has a rockin' Society6 store and recently added duvets to the items you can acquire in her trippy prints, which I have been ogling since their release-- I strongly recommend checking 'em out!
