FP Movement - Infinity Legging

Hood River, OR 

Top: Free People, Leggings: Free People 

Why is everything Free People does just perfect??? I've been eying their line since they came out and was so excited to finally get my hands on some pieces! It was so fun shooting these looks in the perfect fall backdrop back home in Oregon. Happy November! 

FABRIC: Their fabric is thin and breathable and soo cozy. A serious second skin.

BOOTY FACTOR: I wasn't expecting leggings with seemingly no sculpting factor to do much but boy was I wrong. The combination of the stitching and fabric does wonders. 

FIT / SIZING: I'm wearing a small and they fit like a glove. I would say their sizing is true to size and the fabric is very stretchy so you don't have to worry about feeling constricted. 

WHERE TO WEAR: With this lighter fabric I would wear these to a cardio class like Soul Cycle or any other class that works up a sweat! 

P.S. I was so surprised in a good way when I saw this top in person. I looks like a soft ribbed cotton in all the photos of it online, but it's actually very athletic feeling, and the fit was amazing. 

See you next Wednesday!

Onzie - High Rise Bondage Legging

Hood River, OR

Top: Free People Movement, Pants: Onzie

Welcome to a special Halloween edition of #ThePantReview! I've probably been a cat for Halloween more times than not. It's the easiest go-to for a quick and easy costume thats comfy and cute. The mesh detailing on these Onzie leggings added a great update to the basic black leggings from past cat get-ups. I had to improv on the ears because guess who forgot her ears on my trip up north... :D

FABRIC: Onzie's fabric is more athletic feeling than other leggings I've reviewed in the past and the mesh detail makes these super breathable. 

BOOTY FACTOR: The seam that goes straight down your booty in the back kept making a weird bump up. The leggings were a little loose on me so on my next pair I'll be sure to go down a size and hopefully that will fix this! 

FIT / SIZING: Onzie's sizing is a bit different, they offer X/S, S/M, or M/L. I usually universally wear a Small and tend to like to go up a size rather than down one if I'm in between so I got the S/M. They were a little loose on me so for my next pair I'll be getting an X/S.

WHERE TO WEAR: Super breathable, I would wear these to spin or pilates! 

See you next Wednesday and have a Happy Halloween - I'm excited to see what costumes everyone comes up with this year!

The Athleisurely Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and if you're like me you still don't have a costume.... but there's still time! Here are some suer easy last minute costume ideas I put together that only use three pieces each. All you need are an athleisure top and bottom paired with one accessory and you're good to go! 

 (You'll have the most comfortable costume at the party :D) 

Can you guess which outfit I'll be wearing in tomorrow's Pant Review??? XO - M

 

 

Nux Active - London Legging

Hood River, Oregon

Leggings - Nux Active, Sweatshirt - Beyond Yoga, Bomber - Charlotte Russe

It's finally fall at The Athleisurely Life! I was introduced to Nux for the first time last winter and it was love at first sight. Finding companies that I'm instantly in love with and inspire me are what keep me going.

FABRIC: The fabric is nothing like I've worn before, it is breathable and thick at the same time, with different textures throughout. They also have a compression factor that I love, hugging your thighs in just the right spot, which keeps any unnecessary jiggling at bay. ;D Last but not least, they are completely not see through. WOO HOO it's your favorite pair of granny panties time to shine. 

BOOTY FACTOR: The Body Engineered jacquard design of the London Legging contours your legs and booty to make them look great at any angle. 

FIT / SIZING: The London Leggings are ankle length, which I'm totally into right now. They might feel a bit more snug than what you're used to because of the compression factor, but now that I know that's how they are supposed to fit, I love it. Their seamless design makes sure to not cut in, and they also have a comfort gusset that works wonders. You can move all you want in these babies.

WHERE TO WEAR: Perfect for any activity, but since they are a bit thicker I like to wear these on cooler fall days to yoga or barre.

See you next Wednesday!

Alo Yoga - Talia Legging

Paul Smith - Los Angeles, California

Top: Alo Yoga Leggings: Alo Yoga Sunglasses: 

Happy Hump(s) Day! Todays Pant Review is dedicated to breast cancer awareness. My grandma, (AKA my favorite person ever) is a breast cancer survivor, and with October being breast cancer awareness month, I decided to shoot this weeks look at the Paul Smith Pink Wall. (You're only allowed to take pictures with your phone, so my apologies for the lower quality photos!) 

You might have noticed that in October everything is pink. From football uniforms, to police cars and everything in between. To do more than take a silly picture with something pink, follow any of the links I have below to websites dedicated to ending breast cancer and find out what you can really do to make an impact.

Now back to the yoga pants! Alo in white, you can't go wrong. :D 

FABRIC: Always high-qaulity, Alo's Talia leggings have the same feel as their Moto Leggings but with glossy fabric detailing along the seams that helps with breathability and the strategic placing of these seams help contour your legs even if you skipped barre class this morning. ;)

BOOTY FACTOR: They lift, they sculpt, they Kim K your booty for sure. They are a bit see through in the white color, so make sure to wear nude undies. (If anyone has a favorite pair of undies that are magically invisible under yoga pants I would love to know some more brands! Let know in the comments below!)  

FIT / SIZING: Extra-long length leggings that stretch over the ankle and half way onto your foot have been my obsession for awhile, but I am loving the on-trend ankle length of these. Perfect for pairing with tennis shoes, making them more versatile. 

WHERE TO WEAR: These are perfect for almost every activity! My personal favorite for the Talia Legging? Morning walks! The fabric keeps you just warm enough in the cold morning air, but once you start working up a sweat, the breathability is just right. 

See you next week! xo, M
