A Casual Affair // Bike Shorts + Cropped Blouse

A classic workout staple, bike shorts have quickly become an essential in everyday wardrobes. While I was tentative at first to try the trend for myself, I haven't looked back since I did. Don't be fooled — this look may be casual, but my love affair with bike shorts is anything but!

Here, I put an elevated spin on a sporty athleisure look by teaming my bike shorts and sneakers with bold accessories and a crisp white blouse. These shorts are so versatile though, and I especially love how high-waisted they are. The styling opportunities are truly endless. From a crop top and a blazer to an oversized tee and slides, it's almost hard NOT to wear these bike shorts every other day...

A splash of color goes a long way in an otherwise neutral outfit. These vibrant bursts of orange are fun and playful and oh-so summery!

We have a heatwave coming through NYC this weekend and it's going to be an absolute scorcher. We're talking a real-feel of 104 degrees 😱. Antonio and I are planning on going to the beach on Sunday, but now I'm starting to think — is there such a thing as TOO hot to take a dip? I guess we shall see! 

At least on Saturday we'll be nice and cool in a movie theater, because we're seeing the Lion King and I am pumped! We also have acupuncture appointments, which will be rejuvenating and relaxing. And who knows, maybe I'll break out my bike shorts!
