Clothing: Athleta, Booties: Banana Republic
Happy Thursday! A few days ago I had the pleasure of hosting the brand new store opening for Athleta on Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron district! This shopping area is such a gem because everything you need is in a few block radius and you don't get the crazy crowds that higher Fifth ave or Soho draws in making the overall shopping experience much more enjoyable. It's also architecturally very clean and beautiful. The store itself is very grand and open, leaving everything you need (or didnt realize you need but have to have) at your fingertips.
Being that this was an evening event with cocktails and lite-bites, I wanted to really embrace the gym-to-street vibe that Athleta's selection offers. The wrap top and quilted shorts were an instant favorite. The quilted shorts are definitely going to be making it in my apres-ski bag when it comes time! The leggings I'm wearing here are thin enough to be able to layer but they still hug your body in all the right places and make your bits look like you did that extra 20 minutes on the treadmill. They also had a few female instructors model some more looks in a mini-fashion show and the energy coming from them was amazing!
It's been a while since I've done Fitness Friday and getting some new workout gear is definitely motivating me to start combating the winter blues with some fitness endorphins. I'm doing a biathlon with Athleta this weekend so stay tuned for more!
