In the mood to get outdoors and move around a little? Or a lot? An activewear brand I love lately has a pretty sweet promotion ending today! You can take up to $50 off your Athleta purchase through tonight. I’m particularly loving their new arrivals. Use code SUMMER at checkout.
I’m getting back into triathlons after over two years off. In fact, I just did one yesterday in New Jersey. Triathlons require a mix of activewear for swimming, biking and running. If an item can pull double duty, even better! I found all the stuff I needed for Sunday at Athleta.
Firstly, I’m a fan of Athleta’s extensive swim line. They have a mix of cute tanning bikinis, functional one-pieces and active-friendly bikini tops. The Scoop Bikini ($59) for example is wonderful for any water activity from swimming to surfing or even beach volleyball. I wear it with the Shirred Bottom ($44), which also comes in a high-rise version. For the triathlon a one-piece is more practical, so I swam in the Fiore One-Piece ($108) which has a high neckline and is easy to slip out of after the swim.
Next up was biking in the event. I wore a pair of padded bike shorts I recently found on Amazon (these are also great and a bit shorter). I paired that with the Stripe Mesh High Neck Chi Tank ($44), worn over the very supportive Sheer Wrap Bra ($59). And of course, I wore a helmet!
On non-competitive biking days I absolutely adore the skorts at Athleta! From the Athleta May 2018 new arrivals, the Soho Skort ($59) is my usual choice for biking to work. The skirt portion is cute and feminine and goes with anything. The shorts underneath make sure I’m never accidentally flashing anyone from behind the handlebars. I often pair the skort with the Essence Open Back Tank ($49) and my favorite Athleta bra of the moment, the Trophy Seamless Bralette ($50). I love the breathability of the mesh paneling on this bra! Then when I get to work I’ll shower and change into my work outfit for the day. On Fridays this might be it.
Finally, the triathlon ended with a run. I don’t change out of my bike outfit because it would take too long. But if I did, I’d probably get into one of my training outfits like the Mesh Racer Run Short 4″ ($49) with the Transcendence Bra ($41-$49) and Essence Cross Back Tank ($49).
Part of the reason why I’m loving Athleta right now is that their items are easy to care for. I like knowing that I can throw any of this stuff in the washing machine and not have to worry about it getting destroyed. I air dry all of my athletic gear. Athleta is very body positive and shows their items on a true range of sizes. I appreciate that! And their stuff just so happens to be very cute! The Athleta May 2018 new arrivals are full of pretty items perfect for any activity from HIIT classes to hiking to yoga.
Below, my picks from their newest arrivals. Will you take advantage of the promo ending today?
