I’ve never been against the athleisure trend, but I never fully embraced it myself. My idea of a comfortable outfit is jeans and a sweater, which I wear like a uniform most days.
I think because I have been spending so much time in the gym now (!!!), the idea of athleisure has really grown on me. It’s more like a way of life or something. Comfortable leggings? An oversized cozy top? Sneakers I can walk fourteen miles in without skipping a beat? Count. Me. In.
It was so cold over Labor Day weekend. I had packed my weekender for a trip to the beach as if it was summer. (Because it was still summer.) When the weather was unexpectedly chilly and rainy, I made a detour to an Athleta store to pick up some cozy things to wear indoors at the beach.
If you haven’t been inside of an Athleta store recently, you must go asap. I was so impressed with the whole selection. They have clothes for workouts, yoga class, errands, and even great pieces for the office. I was blown away and started telling all of my friends to go.
The top is a must-have for leggings because it comes down long enough to cover your entire butt. Sleeves with thumb holes are also a weakness of mine. They’re especially perfect for those cold mornings when I’m walking the dogs!
Isn’t the length perfect?! I feel so much more comfortable when I’m completely covered, you know?
