I have a confession to make—I’m the girl that wears my athletic gear to run errands… whether I’ve been to the gym/have intentions to go, or not. Sometimes just putting it on makes me feel more fit, so why not!
It’s silly, I know, but I have a serious obsession. Another callout—I have 10+ pairs of “running” shoes and my primary workout is yoga… You don’t even wear shoes in yoga. I just really like running shoes people.
Confessions aside, I thought I would share one of my favorite casual/athletic/gym/not gym/whatever you want to call it, looks!
Lucky for us (if you can relate to the above) the fashion Gods coined the term “Athleisure” a few years back and it’s still going strong!
So here’s my new athleisure look from Tanger:
Here I am making sure my hair is secure for that big run I’m about to go on. 🙂 But really, the grocery bags are sitting just out of sight.
Things to note, these fab leggings with this oh-so stylish print, a simple tank, a fresh jacket (gotta look cool) and of course, my new pair of neon Nike Factory Store sneaks that have been worn every other day since this photo was taken.
The leggings are my favorite part, so we’ll start here. They’re from Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH. Who knew floral and fitness were even friends? If you look closely, you can see the mesh detail across the thighs. Perfect for staying cool on a hot day (or on the treadmill, whatever floats your boat).
Express Factory Outlet | Black Mesh Jacket | $79.95
Next, the tank and jacket. The tank I’ve had for a few months now. It’s from Neiman Marcus Last Call.
Then there’s the new jacket from Express Factory Outlet! Look at the detail (you know I’m a sucker for the little things). It’s super cozy and I’ve even worn it with a white tee and a pair of distressed jeans for a weekend lunch date.
Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH | Rebecca Minkoff Black Tassels Backpack | $109.98
Here’s the not-so-athletic but oh-so-necessary part of any athleisure look, a backpack. My choice was leather from Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH. Again, see the detail in the tassels. It’s the perfect size for all of your necessities. You’ve been warned, once you’re used to going hands-free it will be tough to go back to any other type of handbag. It’s life changing.
Nike Factory Store | Nike Flex Running Shoe | $59.99
The final touch are the shoes. Love them! Nike Factory Store is my jam (we all know this) and they once again made my love for neon shine, but this time in an understated way.
Are you in love with this athleisure trend too? I’m begging you, please comment and let me know where your comfy looks take you… gym or not (it might make me feel better).
