Like most women I know, there are definitely days where I could switch out my entire wardrobe for workout clothes and never look back. You know, live the dream basically. There are many reasons that wouldn’t actually work in my life, but with the amazing activewear options available these days, I can at least look pulled together when I have to take my look from gym to street. Case in point? The brand-new Derek Lam 10C Athleta collection. It’s serious, people. Filled with colorblocked gym staples, leather pieces, and cashmere sweaters, the collection will put a chic twist on your normal sweat style. (And maybe give you a reason to hit the gym in the first place?)
My workout of choice is definitely a Pilates reformer class, and after my favorite trainer Erica Ziel moved to Iowa, I found Core Reform Pilates in Costa Mesa. I’m now obsessed like a straight-up crazy person and try to go to a class at least five times a week. After class I sometimes have actual things going on in my life, and I try not to look like a sweaty Spandex mess for said actual things, ya know? So I’m REALLY into the idea of throwing on a luxe cashmere sweater (once the weather cools down) over my workout gear, adding a bright handbag, and finishing with a few jewels. Suddenly, this whole workout-wear all the time thing seems more realistic than ever. But hey, don’t take my word for it – join me, people! Check out the new Derek Lam 10C Athleta collection for yourself online and in select stores.
