Smooth Like Butter

What is a recent trend that took you a while to get on board with? For me it was biker shorts, and I'm so glad that I finally came around because they're insanely comfy and perfect for working out, lounging at home, or out running errands and grabbing coffee. I chose the Lula Biker Shorts in Ultimate Gray from Aikka Activewear, and LOVE that they're a women owned small business that uses high quality fabric and has affordable prices. Seriously - both the biker shorts and yoga pants further down feel and fit just like my much pricier lululemon pieces. Smooth like butter! Great products, affordable prices, and a feeling of confidence - yes please!

When the weather gets cooler (in like 4 months - ha!) I'll pair them with a pullover or slouchy long sleeve tee. I've also seen people pair biker shorts with a nice top, blazer, and heels and I have to say I kinda like it. 

I can never get enough of cozy athleisure pieces especially after all the extra time at home this past year. I mean who doesn't want to be comfortable?! Especially when you can easily transition from the couch to working out or heading out on a Target run.

Still laughing at the comments my long-suffering blog photographer husband made while snapping these pics - "Why are you smiling? Who smiles while they're working out?" And he couldn't be more right. The RBF is FIERCE when I'm working out or simply laying around - HA!
