Hi friends! How was your weekend? I don't know if you remember, but one of my resolutions this year was to really see the west coast. That has taken the form of mini-one-weekend-vacations, which we've deemed "flash trips." So far I've been to Portland, Tahoe & as of this weekend Reno, Nevada! I ended up crashing a total "guy's weekend" to get there, but it was pretty great. I lost $10 on the penny slots and roulette machines & promptly closed my wallet. Luckily, my friends fared better. Actually, one of them took pity on my poor gambling skills & bought me an awesome AMERICA spirit jersey with his winnings. That's all I really wanted, anyway :D I can't wait to wear it MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, which is coming up so, so soon!
Anywayyyy... I suspect the real reason you're checking in today is this outfit, so let's talk. I love the jogger pant. Always have, always will. In fact, looking back, would you agree that the jogger pant was our first hint of the athleisure trend gripping our country? In case you haven't heard of athleisure, it's basically wearing semi-athletic clothes (sometimes paired with other, nicer pieces) with no intent of actually exercising.
I'm so into it. Athletic clothes are probably the most comfortable clothes in my closet. Naturally I'm on board with dressing them up to wear all the time. Living in San Francisco, where my commute includes a several mile walk everyday, it's so convenient to wear Nike gym shoes with my work clothes & call it a fashion statement. Talk about efficiency!
What do you guys think about athleisure? Do you partake? & if you do, do you have separate athleisure clothes and actual workout clothes? I totally do. My athleisure clothes are way cuter. Although, I am trying to jump back on that exercise train.... maybe some cute workout clothes would help?
