Athleisure Cool for Fall
5 months ago 6 Comments
Although I do like dressing up, there is a side of me that also loves to thoughtfully piece together casual looks. I have always been drawn to slouchy pieces – over sized jackets and sweaters, wide leg pants, large scarves and flowing vests to name a few. I am also a really big fan of athleisure. I am not saying you will spot me in yoga pants running around doing errands anytime soon, but it is fun to rock a laid back, sporty look while incorporating some cozy, comfortable knits.
A little while ago I was getting “Juicy fever” while bumming around the house in some old Juicy Couture sweats. While they closed their doors in 2014 the brand has been revamped and is bringing its iconic velour into present day, I finally gave in, went online and purchased a brand new pair of their Zuma Pants in Regal. I was tempted to buy a second colour and hoodie as well, but being as it would be hard for me to justify a spontaneous track suit haul at the moment I used restraint! Something in my 29-year-old brain felt quite warm and fuzzy at the thought of a matching velour track suit (did I just say that out loud?) Ah the memories!
In partnership with Zaful I was sent this adorable grey knit sweater that I envisioned looking perfectly effortless with my new pants. It comes in a ton of colours and is currently on sale! Zaful is a great online store to find budget-friendly items. I must give a heads up that shipping does take awhile so if you are planning to wear something to a particular event make sure you order plenty of time in advance!
I threw on these Top Shop sneakers and a simple black bag (a gift from my sister) to complete the look while I ran out for a coffee date with my husband, leaving baby J with his grandparents. I seriously think I will be living in this outfit and ones like it for quite awhile!
What are your “off-duty-model” athleisure go-to looks?
Cheers darlings, happy fall!
