Taking My Athleisure Look from Black to Bright

April 12, 2019


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post.

Whoever said it was okay to make athleisure a thing, I thank you. All winter long you can find me running around town in my go-to black leggings or joggers with some combination of a long sleeve tee, sweatshirt or sweater, and a puffy vest. Add in a no-makeup face and three-day dry shampoo hair, and you’ve got Erin at a glance 90% of the time. I guess you could say I like to keep ‘em guessing- did she or did she not just come from a workout? [Answer: no, no she did not].

Now that it’s getting warmer, don’t expect me to wear any more makeup, or actually wash my hair more than once or twice a week. But you can expect to see a change in my athleisure look. Specifically, less black leggings. I’m not saying less leggings, just less BLACK leggings. I mean, if I’m ever going to make yoga a regular thing [going one time doesn’t make me a regular?], I have to continue to wear my yoga pants!

I’ve been noticing that Nordstrom has been carrying a ton of fun colors and patterns aside from black, which has opened up my athleisure wearing eyes! I’m talking camo, marble, multi-colored, leopard, floral, gingham, and more! So many options! Whether you’re wearing them to workout in or work in [hi! me!], the cuter the better, and Nordstrom has you covered. Plus, with my favorite feature, free shipping and free returns, there’s no risk  if they don’t fit, or the material isn’t what you were looking for!

It’s no secret that I love all things Zella, which is why I chose leggings, a tank, sports bra, AND jacket, all from Zella for running around Georgia recently! I love when a sports bra has a little personality, especially with how strappy some tank tops are now, and this marble sports bra does the trick! And while this muscle tank top may not be strappy, it’s the perfect top for a running or running errands, with the loose but not super flowy fit! Top it all off with a comfy jacket that passes as a sweatshirt, and when you zip it up, it makes the cutest cowl neck!

The colors in these leggings scream Spring to me – the blues, purples, whites, all of it! These are my favorite style of Zella leggings, but with a more slick finishing to them to give them a bit of sheen! They tie in perfectly with my pink sneakers! These sneakers may not be the greatest for working out [therefore, giving it away that I actually did not just come from the gym], but they sure are cute! And that’s what matters for athleisure, right?

Now I’m off to pack away the rest of my black leggings until next Fall, and keep perusing the activewear section of Nordstrom to see what other athleisure goodies I can find!
