Fashion Friday | Ode to Athleta

One of my favorite new places to shop is Athleta. I have always enjoyed thumbing through their catalogs, and I ordered from them several times, but it is only since ramping up my exercise program that they have become one of my go-to online shopping locations.

If you aren’t familiar with Athleta, they are owned by the Gap and are known for stylish activewear. Like this!

After the holidays, while they had their winter sale items marked an additional 20% off, I took some Christmas money and went shopping. I was delighted with my entire order, and I’m already making a wish list for my next one.

You’ve already seen my cream Rib Zip Hoodie, which I love for casual days working at home and running errands.

I also treated myself to these Relay Capris. They are the only item I bought that weren’t on sale but I’ve wanted them for a long time, and I absolutely love them — both for running and the gym. They look awesome with the Trailhead Tank.

I have a hard time finding cute tops that aren’t racer-back or otherwise too bare for my sensibilities, and for $19.99, that’s a steal! (It was $34.99 plus 20% off when I ordered it. So the prices are much better now, even without the additional 20% off sale. Kind of kicking myself right now, but hey. If you’re in the market for some workout attire, here’s your chance to get some really cute stuff for an awesome bargain!!)

And I bought their Organic Cotton Salamba Pant which I wore in this post. I got these for working out at the gym as well as for wearing around. The days I go to the gym, I sometimes run errands afterwards, so I like having workout clothes that are nice enough for wearing around too.

I usually wear them with the red Nike sweatshirt my husband got me for Christmas, but I have my eye on the Athleta Spice It Up Hoodie. I love the longer length and the thumb hole detail on the sleeves. The longer lengths are particularly nice when wearing running tights or the Relay Capris ’cause they cover the tushy.

The only question is, magenta?

Or pacific?

Speaking of longer lengths, I also have my eye on this Sphinx Hoodie. In fact, I might have just ordered that with the $20 in Gap Rewards I just earned. Sbhhh…

The Tranquility Tank is a must for both running and gym workouts. I adore this hibiscus color.

And isn’t this Hatha Hoodie positively YUMMY? They picture worn over workout gear, but I would totally wear that around town with jeans and boots.

Now I just have to wait till it all goes on sale.

Do you buy from Athleta? What are your favorite pieces?
