Urban Gypsy Meets Athleisure

Spring has finally arrived! Yes, I know, being on the west coast it was kind of sort of here since January. Nevertheless, I am happy to welcome the season because it means that summer (the actual best season, fight me if you disagree) is only a few short months away.

 
 
 
 

For spring 2017 the athleisure trend has been the look I’m feeling. I love that the style is understated yet bold and edgy at the same time.

What I like most about fashion is that it pushes boundaries and challenges the norm. I’ve realized that I need to take a similar attitude into my life because for a long time my default has been a very neutral palette, usually avoiding statement pieces. I tend to go for what I consider is safe, and if I don’t immediately see “it” then I’m out.

 
 
 
 
 
 

I had to challenge myself against my usual norm for this outfit. You have to just do it sometimes! See what I did there? I decided to channel an edgy, ornate but laid back vibe. A mix of athleisure and a bit of urban gypsy.

I'm wearing Forever 21's Zip-Front Denim Overalls and Sheer Mesh Longline Tee. Check out Boohoo (choker), Zaful (bangles), and Foot Locker for similar styles to the items worn.
