Comfy and Cute

Once the weekend hits, I’m all for comfortable clothes.  Since I workout in the mornings I usually stay in my workout clothes all day, which is apparently the cool thing to do now (who knew?).  I recently read that “athleisure wear” is in style.  It’s a clothing trend where you wear workout clothes.

Here’s one of my favorite outfits that I’ve been sporting lately:

A good hoodie.  I recently bought this hoodie from Old Navy.  The color I picked online looked more like a pinkish color but in real life it’s a bright peach.  (I’ve actually just noticed that my picture doesn’t look like the right color either.  Maybe it’s one of those colors that just messes with camera sensors or something.)  I have to admit that I didn’t like the color at all when I first saw it because I’m more into neutral colors.  But I tried it on and it’s a great medium weight zip hoodie and it’s super comfy.  For the great price I decided to keep it and after wearing it, the color has grown on me.  I like that this hoodie doesn’t look like “gym clothes,” if that makes sense.  You can wear it with leggings, jeans, white jeans, shorts… yup, it’s a keeper.  I definitely want to buy it in another color (my usual grey or black when I want to be more incognito 😉 ).

Leggings.  Let me start by saying that I’m not really into leggings.  It’s just not my thing.  That means I’m a pretty tough critic of them.  A couple of years ago I noticed that my flare style workout pants were a bit dated  so I needed to step up my game and get over my insecurities of wearing the dreaded leggings.  I tried on a ton of brands and fell in love Calia leggings.  They are super comfy, stretchy (which is essential for working out) and they suck you in (which is amazing).  Some of her leggings come in short, tall and plus sizes.  I buy the ones that come in short (because I am) and the capri style (because on a petite gal like me it’s not really a capri).  Another great thing about the legging is that they still look great after several washings.    These black leggings are one of my favorites for the colder months.  The pleated detail by the ankles is super cute.

Comfy Sneakers.  I’ve shared my love of these Nike sneakers before but it’s worth noting again.  I own them in a hot pink color too.  They are definitely comfortable and cute.

Hot Shades.  If I’m running errands after my workout, I like to wear sunglasses to cover part of my face since I’m not wearing any makeup.  I love these Tory Burch aviator style ones.


Ciao for now!
