today’s look…stripes on stripes.

happy monday lovebugs!
i haven’t done a sporty/athleisure/gym-wear outfit post in a hot minute, and i’ve been DYING to show off these pants. i mean LOOK AT THEM! i think i’m even more partial to them because they’re a part of the buff bunny collection. and if you know me at all you know i’m obsessed with heidi somers.
surprisingly even though the mesh isn’t stretchy they are still super comfortable and easy to move in. they’re actually one of my favorite pairs of pants to wear for leg day, because they are squat/bend proof. the fabric quality is nice and thick, which means everything’s sucked in and kept in place. basically you’re legs are gonna look goooooood girl. 😉
while i do love this look for an everyday, running around town kind of outfit, i must be honest and say i’d probably never wear this to the gym. i don’t know why, maybe it’s just the modesty, but i can’t bring myself to wear a crop top to the gym. i see girls rock it all the time (sometimes even just a sports bra), but it’s just not for me. i do have a super cute black tank that i wear with these pants though. regardless, an all black gym look is my absolute favorite. #beaBA
also, if you’re wondering how i snagged a pair of these adidas nmd runners that are always sold out, it’s because ya girl has got connections. just kidding. i actually just knew the time and day they were being released and jumped at them quick! i picked mine up at finish line but they sell them at my favorite women’s athletic wear store six02, too!

today’s look..a t h l e i s u r e.

if you weren’t aware, this new idea of “athleisure” has been floating around a lot lately, and let me tell you this is one fad you are going to want to jump on.
i mean jump quick and fall hard.
what is athleisure, you ask?
athleisure is a style capable being worn for, you guessed it, athletic purposes or for leisure.
it’s been all over the streets, designer showrooms, and almost every store.
like what’s better than wearing comfy workout clothes and it being totally chic and on trend? NOTHING.
especially when you’re a fashion and fitness freak like me!
now in this athleisure look, i would have to change my top and shoes and throw my hair completely up before hitting the gym, but it’s still “gym chic.” lol
these are hands down my favorite pair of leggings. the nike pro warm 3.0‘s are thick, warm and hug you in all the right places. uhh, yes please!
pair them with a casual crop top (knot up an oversized tee for a diy!) and vest, or zip up hoodie, throw on a sleek pair of sneaks, and voila! athleisure.
ps: i LOVE my nike air max thea’s, but i want these and these!!
