Will Lane - Jennifer Legging

The Athleisurely Review

Manhattan Beach, California

Happy Thursday! I’m a day late for today’s review so lets keep it short and sweet!

This week’s brand is Will Lane Athletics. I love their minimalistic style and the nude tone of these leggings. P.S. - these leggings are under $100!

FABRIC: Their fabric is light, airy and breathable. I love the mesh that they use. I’ve come across some mesh fabrics that can feel too tight and itchy to the skin, almost plasticky. Will Lane’s mesh is not like that at all, you can barely even tell there’s a difference between the legging fabric and the mesh portion. It adds just the right amount of breathability.

FIT / SIZING: I got a small and they fit perfect. They’re not too tight and they don’t dig in or give you a muffin top. You could wear these all day and they wouldn’t get itchy or uncomfortable.

BOOTY FACTOR: Since the fabric is on the thinner side, they don’t have a sculpting factor. On this particular pair, the backside is nude colored fabric that is see through so make sure to wear the right undies!

WHERE TO WEAR: Somewhere sweatyyyy. Hot 8 yoga or spin. These do great when the heat is turned up.

p.s. The bra I’m wearing is called the Kali Sports Bra. I love the detailing in the back and how bold the front is. I love wearing this to events as a stand out piece. I also own the Marcella Sports Bra and it is my go-to cozy lazy Sunday bra.

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!

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
