Athleisure: Taking It To the Streets


I’m feeling this athletic trend, but (I’m almost embarrassed to admit) find myself out of my comfort zone, ironically, when in ‘comfy’ clothes – like the au courant side-stripe track pant. I don’t know how the phys-ed teachers of the world do it; and I don’t know how non-phys-ed folks manage to straddle the line between cool and ‘couch-potato’ when integrating gym wear into their everyday game.

At least 5 people have commented on how comfy I look today… which makes me feel suspiciously similar to the way I side eye the folks who tell me I seem ‘tired’ or ask if I’m well today when I am under the weather. However, I think this is more in my head than in reality. I am experimenting. Today, it’s hair done, no-makeup makeup (so no one mistakes me for taking my ‘sick day’ look to work), a printed sweater and black trackers with a wide, white stripe up the side. Perhaps I’ll be bold and take that racing stripe out for a night on the town.

Either way, it’s game on, because whether I’m headed to and from the pole studio, to dance rehearsal, or to mark some exams… it’s all about the right confidence and attitude. At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
