It’s Here: Derek Lam x Athleta

Guys, I’m getting back into the workout game … go figure, at the end of summer. They say summer bodies are made in the winter but, either way, I’m really just trying to be healthy and get back to my early-20s body. #thestruggleisreal as noted by my recent Snapchats.

Of course working out is way more exciting when fun athletic clothes are involved, so when Athleta reached out to me to test out their new Derek Lam 10C Athleta collaboration it was a no brainer. The new collections infuses fashion with fitness with really thoughtful styles that are flattering and multi-purpose.

I took the studio leggings for a test run, literally, at the Rosebowl a few weeks back (one of the many stops on my Pasadena local guide) and they were fab! The fit is great and I’m obsessed with the waistband; everything holds you in without cutting in, if you know what I mean. I don’t think anyone is going for the workout-pant muffin top, am I right?

The town sweatshirt jacket comes in the perfect grey that can go from workout to real life. Threw on a tee and jorts for a post-run sporty-spice look.

Check out all the other styles in the exclusive collab; I’m swooning over the leather joggers. Real talk, who’s done Pilates before? I’m currently embarking on a two month Pilates-only workout at The Studio MDR and getting my butt kicked. You can revel in my post-workout pain on Snapchat: pursuitofshoes!
