It took me a while to get on the "Athleisure" train. The mixing of sporty pieces (think: jerseys, sports bras, yoga wear as daywear, sneakers) with classics wasn't something that I immediately felt I needed to incorporate into my wardrobe. I've seen other people put together looks and thought they were great (Mallory of Sweet & Sauer does an amazing job at it!), but just never thought it was for me.
I am on my feet all day for work, and have been finding it increasingly hard to wear uncomfortable shoes just for the sake of being cute. So I set about finding some footwear that was stylish and functional at the same time.
Enter THE NIKE JUVENATE. These shoes are literally like walking on a cloud! They have been my lifesavers for running errands and heading to meetings on foot in my neighborhood. When the awesome (read: funny, chill, insightful beyond her years) Shea Hennessy & I met up to take some fun shots and sip some coffee, I knew these babies had to be documented.
Funny thing though, my attire's gotten slightly more sporty ever since I got them. Nothing too fussy, super comfortable, and always paired with my trusty faux leather jacket from the Inspyre semi-annual sale. Casual, stylish, and a bit trendy: The Black Velveteen does Athleisure.
