I've been trying to work out more frequently these days. Exercise has always been a challenge for me, but you know what makes it easier? Cute work out clothes! You know what's even better? Cute work out clothes that can also be worn as regular clothes! Here's the thing...I tend to be very busy (being a mom and working full time can do that to a person). Sometimes I'm in such a rush that I don't have time to change. Well, Athleta makes it easy. I'm not even exaggerating when I say they have the cutest, comfiest, and most well-made exercise clothing. They challenged me to take a couple of their items from "fit style" to "street style" and I was surprised at how easy this task turned out to be!
First up is Fit Style:
Let me just say that these pants are some of the comfiest I have ever worn and the best part is they're actually LONG enough! Athleta carries tall sizes online, which is exactly what this 5'9" girl needs. Also, I am always self conscious of my buns when I'm exercising, so I love when a top has a long back that covers my rear. And thumbholes...you really can't go wrong with thumbholes. For the record, I'm not wearing makeup and my hair is not done. People that get all dolled up for the gym kind of freak me out.
Now, for the Street Style:
Top: c/o Athleta, Pants: c/o Athleta, Boots: Kohls, Jacket: c/o SheInside, Hat: ASOS, Bag: Kate Spade (similar), Necklace: American Eagle
Pretty easy, right? I just tucked the pants into some tall boots and put on a jacket. Then, I added a necklace, bag and a little bit of lipgloss. And I don't know about you, but my hair can get really greasy after working up a sweat, so I threw a hat on top and called it a day. Granted, most of the time I'm a hot mess after working out, so in the perfect world I'd prefer to take a shower, put on makeup, do my hair, blah blah blah. But, on those days when I have a million things to do, this will work juuuuuust fine.
