Coffee Shop Chic with Ethona Active
When I'm not dressed up and going to brunch, 98% of the time you'll find me sporting a look more on the activewear side, heading to one of my favorite coffee shops for an iced almond milk latte before or after my morning barre class. A lot of times I truly do feel my best in something body hugging and comfy.
Wait, did I just use those 3 words in one sentence?!
Yup, I did. It's totally possibly to wear something fitted, feel good about the way you look, have it be super versatile for whatever you choose to do that day and have your look be a conversation starter.
I absolutely love Ethona Active because its pieces are super dynamic and are so flattering on the body. They can really be worn any time - for a work out, for a coffee run, a casual brunch.. you name it.
The line, however is more than just a chic marriage of fashion and fitness. I really admire that the brand's mission is to inspire women to strive for more and achieve their goals - whether its fitness, career, fashion or health related. Moreover, the Ethona is really passionate about fighting against labor and human trafficking in modern society. Ethona donates 10% of profits to its partners actively fighting against human trafficking. The groups focus on awareness, prevention and aftercare.
Now that's what I call something to talk about.
Here are a few of my favorite looks to wear on my morning coffee runs:
I am SO obsessed with this Radiant Long Sleeve Wrap Top in Chalk Pink. This is hands down one of the comfiest tops I've ever worn. I love how much interest and detail there is in this top - between the keyhole, the cute wrap with gold embellishments (my favorite part), and the thumb holes. It's a lightweight, stretchy knit that has lots of breathability and is very quick to dry - it's so great because I know I can keep it on post-barre (aka really sweaty) and still feel comfy and dry.
I am a huuuuuge fan of sets. More specifically, high-waisted leggings and crop tops. Ethona's Gleaming Bralette in Snow Grey is the perfect "throw it on and look great" crop. It's designed to be worn all day and has an incredibly soft knit material (like buttah!) and I really love the unique criss-cross design of this. It gives moderate support and a teeny boost too which is awesome because it easily doubles as an active top and also a top you could wear to go about your day.
I am a huge fan of the Opulent Legging in Snow Grey as well because they are slimming, stylish and are high-waisted (LOVE). It has a double layered contoured waistband for comfort, and the waistband is even optional to fold over! It has a hidden pocket at the waistband perfect for fitting your phone (yay, so I can double fist coffees) and a really cute cutout at the upper back part of the pant!
One of my all time favorite Ethona pieces? The Vivacious Slim Fit Dress in Oatmeal! I am all about body hugging dresses, and I love them even more when they're made to be worn casually and comfortably for a stylish athleisure look. It's incredibly soft and stretchy with a tasteful cut out in the back, and I paired it with a pair of white sneaks - sporty and chic all in one.
Not to mention, I love anything in the taupe family! This dress could also be a great transition if after your pilates or barre class you want to change, but you're not exactly ready to be putting on skinny jeans. Talk about lookin' hot at the coffee shop!
