Style Spotlight: Heart Pumping Style

I can’t believe it’s October already! The air is crisp, the leaves are changing and Halloween candy is popping up in all the grocery stores (8 mini chocolate bars are less than 1 big one right??!!). With all the extra temptation around, October is a great time of year to get out and get moving while it’s still relatively mild. This year’s hot, hot, HOT athleisure trend really is perfect for a West Coast gal. From a quick walk around the Sea Wall to brunch with your favourite people, athleisure is the way to go. Comfy, chic and 100% on point – this look is extremely easy to wear and will ensure that you’re ready for pretty much anything.

These tapered joggers are my go to for everything - I have them in every colour possible and they are so easy to transition from Spring to Summer to Fall - you can dress them up or down and here is a perfect example on how to wear them casually." - Nira Arora
