How We Wore It: Sporty

Sporty. That is definitely not a word I'd use to describe myself! I enjoy fitness (and by that I mean working out in my living room wearing whatever combination of mis-matched comfy clothes I've randomly pulled out of my drawer) and I love being outdoors. Also, I have a toddler. With all that, you'd think I'd already have hurled myself on-board the whole sporty/athleisure trend. The fact that you can now actually wear yoga pants outside your house and not be judged as a lazy slob...I mean, it's kinda revolutionary. Life changing, even. Don't we all want to be comfortable?? So I can't quite figure out my reluctance to fully embrace the changing times, unless it's a result of far too many episodes of What Not To Wear during my formative years (I can seriously see Stacy London glowering and shaking her head in the corner of my brain.) But I'm working on it! I recently bought my first pair of patterned leggings and let Travis talk me into a pair of Lululemons awhile back, even though my inner cheapskate cringed at the price tag. And I now own multiple pairs of shoes whose sole purpose (haha) are functionality and comfort! 

For me, one of the best things about challenges like the ones hosted by Deidre Emme, is that they slowly but surely pull me out of my cozy little box and get me to take a second look at my wardrobe, and consider how and why I choose the clothes I do. As you might have guessed from the post title, this month's How We Wore It is all about sporty, casual looks. Here's the inspiration photo from Looks For Lovelies:

I think I'm adding these Nikes to my wish list!

It took some serious effort to put together a couple of casual sporty looks that I wouldn't be ashamed to be seen in in public! After a little struggle wading through my mostly gray and/or black options, here's what I came up with:

So my question for you is, do you athleisure?
