MCLV Style: Athleisure

The athleisure trend that has emerged over the last few seasons has been nothing short of a breath of fresh air for fashion lovers.

You want us to wear slip-ons or sneakers instead of four inch stiletto heels? Ok!

You want us to wear silky track pants or a cozy tunic and leggings to go out to brunch? Count me in!

And while adopting all of the tenets of the athleisure faith full time isn’t an option due to, you know, dress codes, it has been a really fun style to try on for size.

I feel like there’s more freedom with fashion in general these days, but the athleisure trend means imposing an even more casual and comfortable aspect in daily dress that just hasn’t been there before for women.

Let me add this caveat, however. I’m not here to sign off on leggings-instead-of-pants, your booty should still be covered if you’re not heading directly to your local Crunch for a workout.

But a pair of sleek leggings paired with an oversized tunic for a look that’s part 90’s and part off-duty ballerina? Hell yes!

To me, the look I’m sharing here is the perfect one for a part-active, and part-lazy Sunday. You can wake up, get dressed, walk to yoga class, and then grab brunch with friends. Maybe wander to the Farmer’s Market or pick up your favorite blooms at your local florist afterwards… {Can you tell I’m having a moment here daydreaming about my perfect Sunday?}

It’s flattering and street-appropriate, perfectly functional for a workout, and still totally cute.

And since I’m utterly infatuated with this style for the streets right now – Here’s my new Athleisure Pinterest Board for your viewing pleasure. 🙂

Tell me – What are YOUR views on the athleisure trend? Are you a fan?

MCLV Style: Lucy Activewear

I’m always on the lookout for great new workout gear, always, and just had a wonderful experience with Lucy Activewear that I’ve got to share!

I may be hooked on Fabletics, but if I see another brand with a good-looking collection, I’ll definitely give one of their pieces a try.

But I’m picky!

I want to be comfortable and not spend my workout adjusting or worrying about wardrobe malfunctions. I like my tops fitted, but not tight. i.e. It shouldn’t flip all the way over my head during a handstand.

And I want to feel good!

Which means flattering pieces that really motivate me to rock my workout.

I hadn’t tried Lucy before, but was pleasantly surprised by both of these pieces. The Studio Hatha Capri Leggings are really soft and thick, and the stripes are subtle, but still eye-catching. And, luckily, the dreaded leg-expanding effect of some printed leggings wasn’t an issue here.

And this racerback tank?

Obsessed.

There’s a Lucy Activewear in the Embarcadero Center near my office and I can’t wait to go in and grab the tank in every color. It fits like a dream and dried super quickly after a sweat-drenching Ritual Hot Yoga session.

I actually jogged straight from this shoot at Yerba Buena to Ritual in SOMA for a much-needed sweaty workout with blogger babe Champagne For Everyday.

Have YOU tried Lucy Activewear? What do YOU look for in your gym gear?
