Hiking to Brunching

April 16, 2014

Hiking to Brunching When it comes to breaking a sweat, there are a few factors that fuel my motivation. One, I have to have good gear, two, it’s ten times more fun with friends, and three, there must be a reward of some kind at the end. Since we officially stepped into the spring season, one my favorite things to do on the weekends is meet a couple of friends for an early hike followed by brunch at a tasty little joint called D’Angelos. Only problem I ran into was not loving my look. I always felt slightly grubby in my hiking attire and was antsy to get home and put something less embarrassing on. So I decided to ramp up my ‘sporty yet chic’ options in my wardrobe and in the process I picked up a few tricks for transitioning from the trails to the table. Since finding some winners, I can’t help but mix them in with my everyday wears. My sporty side has officially kicked in.

Athleta sweatshirt and tank, AG boyfriend jeans, Nike sneakers, Super sunglasses, Celine bag.

Tip #1: Layers are essential. I can’t get enough of this hoodie I picked up which I’ve been styling with yoga pants and jeans for an active look. Tip #2: Always pack some tools to tame the mane. Hide messy hair with a hat or throw it up in a bun with some pins. Tip #3: Switch out your workout pants for jeans. It’s less obvious that you hit the gym (or trails) and slightly more pulled together. Tip #4: An oversized black tote is sleek and hides all the necessities. Plus you can count on it staying clean where ever you choose to burn some calories. Tip #5: Find a brand that works with your body. There are a few sources I consistently return to knowing I’ll be satisfied. I find myself browsing Athleta’s tops all the time because I know the fit and length is exactly what I like.
