Athleisure is I think one of my favorite style troupes. You get to be comfortable and look like you’re thinking about going to the gym without ever actually setting foot in a gym. You get the comfort without the work, and I’m about that life. (Disclaimer* I do actually workout, this diatribe does not mean in any way that I am against physical fitness or hard work).
I loved seeing the horrified faces of some of my friends when I started thinking about buying these Tevas flatforms. Not everyone really gets them, and that’s ok. I had an immediate bonding moment with these shoes that I can’t really explain. But then I walked in them and I was able to explain. I liken the experience to walking on that foam you used to jump into when you were a wee tot in gymnastics class. Little foamy rubbery clouds if you will. Not a bad way to get around.
This top was first marketed to me as a dress…cool idea if I was about 5ft tall. When it came in the mail I knew that wasn’t going to fly. I thought about going my basic route and throwing on some yoga pants with it, but something about the bike shorts just felt right.
This sloppy half bun always makes me feel about 50% cooler than I am, it’s an easy way to convey that chillin vibe that athleisure lends itself to.
How do you do athleisure? Tell me in the comments!
