I am so excited to be bringing you all a new series, “Farewell Summer.” I completely understand that the month of September signifies the start of Fall, but here in the South we’re still experiencing Summer-like weather. This series will focus on some of my favorite Summer trends like maxi dresses and coordinating sets. While also creating Fall looks from Summer items.
Athleisure is defined as a style of clothing worn as athletic apparel but also suitable for casual, everyday wear: Athleisure looks great whether you’re working out or just running errands. It has become one of my most favorite trends to tackle this season. I am most impressed by all of the inspiration and the plus size options. 15 year old be would have been happy with a pair of leggings in her size.
Styling athleisure is so fun for me because I am literally making my younger self proud. I honestly cannot remember what I wore to the gym, but I am sure I squeezed in them. This outfit was so cool. I found this Nike skirt and created a look around it. I found my Nike sneakers and loved the hints of neon. I found my Nike shirt at a steal and remembered I had my Nike socks at home.
Style Notes: I am wearing a size an XXL in my Nike skirt, it is the perfect fit with a drawstring. My Nike sneakers are true to size in a 10. My Nike shirt is in a size XL, but I could have sized down to a large.
