Hello, friends! Hey, did ya know I’m sporty chic?? I just have to admit that following fashion trends lately has been totally amusing to me because, well, we can now apparently wear sweatpants in public and call it “sporty,” or, you know, just wear beat up jeans and a t-shirt and call it normcore… What? I have no idea what my look today would really be categorized as – perhaps sporty with a touch of normcore and a dash of tomboy (is that still a thing??) – but I don’t really care because it is comfortable and I like it.
For today’s sporty look, I opted for something that you are very likely to see me wearing on a day-to-day basis: jeans, a sporty tank top and some tennis shoes. I threw the windbreaker around my waist because it was actually chilly that morning (not as a fashion statement, although the neon pink trim does match my pink shoes).
The top is actually a boy’s tank top I thrifted for less than $3 and the polka dot jeans were thrifted as well for only $4.50. The tennis shoes, while still a good deal, were a lot more expensive. They are the Nike Free Flyknit barefoot running shoes that I got at a Nike Factory Store for only $65 (these puppies retail for $130), and I would pay that $65 again in a heartbeat because these are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned! Seriously.
Polka dot jeans and pink Nike’s – yeah, this girl screams tough! ;) (Also, what face am I making??)
The details: stripe pocket tank (Goodwill) // polka dot jeans (Goodwill) // neon green windbreaker (New Balance via Burlington Coat Factory) // Nike Free Flyknit running shoes (Nike Factory Store)
How do you feel about the sporty chic trend? I have to admit I totally love the idea, but I have yet to find a pair of “joggers,” or, you know, sweatpants, that I would actually feel comfortable wearing outside of the house.
Let’s see what my fellow Thrift Style Thursday pals came up with for their sporty chic looks:
