Gym to Street // Athleta Aspire Ankle Pant

Hello loves!! If you haven’t already heard of/had the experience of slipping into the oh-so comfy, Aspire Ankle Pant, I’m pretty pumped to introduce you to these easy-breezy, cool-girl pants today! 

My first pair of the Aspire Ankle Pant was in black, which I got and wore to death over the summer. On my last trip into the store, I just couldn’t help myself but to snag another pair of these live-in pants when I spotted them in one of fall’s hottest colors, olive green, which happens to be one of my fave colors aside from the fact that its trending this season.

These have no doubt become one of my go-to’s for anything from training clients, running errands, long walks outside with my babe & they are SO much better (and easier) to throw on après sweat vs. wrestling to get on yet another pair of tight yoga leggings. If I’m heading out for a casual lunch with friends (or just feel like standing a little taller!) I love to pair my aspire’s x a pair of Nike Dunks + pull that string tightly, for a little extra scrunching — super cute & put together! I love the little details on these pants — the angled, front-zip pockets, 2 pockets on the bum + of course, that tapered, scrunched leg. I also love & prefer to wear my waist flipped/rolled over.

For this look, I went with my newest pair of kicks, the Nike Internationalist that I got in this neutral combo for fall + the uber soft Transcend long sleeve in light heather grey. A little LS FitTip about this top: 1) it is crazy soft, light weight and you’ll want to live, sleep, do everything in it 2) I’m 5’10” and have some pretty broad shoulders…with that being said, I’m surprisingly wearing an xxs in the top and it fits perfect across my chest/shoulders + has plenty of room to spare around the waist + length. With the aspire pant, I prefer to tuck in the front, but, when wearing with a pair of leggings, this slightly hi-lo top drapes perfectly over your tush!

Any Athleta must-haves that you just can’t go without!? xx

Much Love,

    Hi Lauren, great outfit! I was wondering what size you got in the aspire pant. I like the way they fit you. What size are you normally in jeans? Are they still comfy even when they’re more fitted? Thanks and sorry to pester. -Becca

      Hi Becca!Thank you! I got a size 4 in the Aspire pant. I really love to roll the waist band down – I just think they are cuter/more flattering that way. I have them in black, as well. Funny thing, the black ones are way looser on me, even though they are the same size! I am usually a 2 or a 25/26 in jeans.They are totally comfy! 🙂
      Hope this helps!! xoxoLS
