It wasn’t too long ago when I was personally against wearing athletic wear out in public unless I was running errands either before or after a workout. My philosophy was that it took just as long to put on jeans as yoga pants. And in a lot of cases, that’s still how I feel. I’ve even been known to give the side eye to women in workout gear with a full face of makeup and their hair perfectly coifed. (Like, “Giiiiirl. Who are you kidding? You didn’t go to the gym!”) BUT I’m starting to come around a little to the whole athleisure trend.
This look could have looked just as cute with running tights/workout leggings (and I would’ve been so on board with that), but I decided to make it a little more leisure-y with faux leather leggings instead. And any excuse to rock these new sneakers is a good one because they are SO.COMFY. Consider me a convert… kinda.
What’s your take on athleisure style?
