As I recently mentioned, Athleta is a new discovery for me. They opened in my local mall around this summer and it never even occurred to me to go in there. I think skirting the line between athletic gear and actual street clothes is tricky. I don't want to turn around and realize I've become one of those moms who dresses solely in Lululemon and Athleta. I don't mean that in a judgy way - you've gotta do what's right for you - but I really try to put some sort of "outfit" together every day. It makes me feel good about me. Plus, I always think of Clinton Kelly from What Not To Wear who always talks about how it's the same number of pieces! Sweatpants, t-shirt, sweatshirt OR jeans, button-down, nice sweater. I'm trying to opt for the latter :)
Anyhoo, the sporty look is sort of trendy right now so I don't mind trying to engage in it a little bit. Here are a few things that I found that I think skirt the line pretty well!
Rabbit Ears Full Zip by SmartWool in Deep Sea Heather (size XS)
City Limits Jacket in Gray Heather (XXS)
City Limits Jacket in Black (size XS)
Tranquility Cowl Neck in Teal Marine Heather (XXS)
Ashtee Sweater in Black (XXS)
I also liked the look of this jacket - another take on the moto.
Love the slouchy ease of this little sweatshirt-y number. Almost reminds me of something from
These remind me of the MacCallister wedges at J Crew but slightly sportier.
What's your take on Athleta's non-workout clothing offerings?
