Athleisure Style Staples Wish List

My birthday is just around the corner ((38!!)) so I have a bit of an online wishlist going right now. Really, it’s a shopping cart that is locked and loaded full of my favorite Athleisure Style Staples. Because I’ve been shopping for formal outfits for a few events coming the next few months, I’m all fancied out and I’m more interested in getting something more ‘me’ for my birthday. I wear jeans, tee shirts, athletic jackets and sneakers 99.99% of my life, being a stay at home/blogger mom so these items fit my lifestyle better. I have no problem playing dress up for formal events, but I love my caz outfits.

Without further ado, here is the wishlist. I’m just about to check out on the Adidas jacket and the Levi’s 501 Selvedge jeans but I’m narrowing down my sneaker choice. I think I’m going to pass on my sneaker selection to my husband as a hint hint of what he might get me without having to run to the mall or guess on colors and sizing. I’ll probably just send him my three choices and have him get my daughters to choose for me.


  1. Levi’s 501 Skinny Jeans Selvedge I haven’t tried these on yet but I’ve really been wanting to get a pair of traditional selvedge denim that you need to break in and that stretch out perfectly to your shape. I suspect even though I ordered my TTS that these are going to be very tight at first, but I’ll know if they are break-inable. FYI, if you sign up with your email address you get 20% off plus free shipping + this specific style is already on markdown for a great price.
  2. Adidas SS Track Jacket – I love Adidas. I love the track jackets, the trefoil print, the black/white. I’ve been wanting a classic track jacket for a while but there are a few styles and I haven’t been sure which one was the right look. As soon as I saw this more relaxed fitting one with a zip-up  I knew this was the perfect look.
  3. Adidas Ultraboost Parley Stone/White/Mirror Blue – Again, I love Adidas. I discovered the amazingness that is the Ultraboost shoe last year and posted this review of my Ultraboost Parley which are my most treasured sneakers of all my many sneakers. Mrs. O also fell in love with the Ultraboosts and wrote this review here, and here. I love this particular colorway because it reminds me of my favorite Nike tank top.
  4. APL Phantom Leopard and APL Phantom Pony. These are out there, I know. I just really love the look of this faux poney (cow fur) texture on shoes. I also really love a leopard print ballet flat or scarf as an accent so it got me thinking about adding this type of fashion staple into an athletic shoe and how you would style it. It just looks so sharp and nice. Maybe a little bit Peg Bundy, but also maybe it would look awesome with black leggings, that Adidas track jacket and some blackout sunglasses. What do you guys think? I haven’t jumped on the APL train, mostly because of my undying devotion for the Adidas Ultraboosts.

I’ve been looking at the ultra boost as well, the colorway is so beautiful. I don’t think I could every wear them to workout because they are just so clean.

They are the most comfortable sneakers ever, and so cool. I just love them. If you get a chance you should definitely get a pair.

Hi Cristina! I can’t find your fit review of the Stress less pullover in pink 🙁

The leopard print APLs r gorgeous …. I hope they pick these as your birthday gift!

I’m definitely more of a dressed up kinda girl (dresses and heels for me 90% of the time). But I love those leo print APL’s <3

Happy early birthday!

It’s “trefoil” not “tree foil”. For a “professional” blogger that links to every.single.item you need to proofread!

Thanks, bud! I’m on it.

I love the new colorway for the Ultraboost = Stella McCartney you picked out. Ihave an Ultraboost styled the same way but in black and silver (with silvery sparkles). I really like the support and the cut of that style. Oh dear, what am I going to do! Now I want them! The APLs are great too but I think you’ll get more use out of the Ultraboost because the color is more versatile. But they are very cute. I haven’t jumped on the APL bandwagon yet.

I really need to get to a Nike store to check out their version of the single foam sole. I’m so curious about these.
Have you had a chance to try them on? Anyone? Also, Under Armour’s too. But I think I won’t like the UA shoes. Every UA show I try on doesn’t compare to the shoes I already have.

I agree with you completely. I’m really taken by the APL leopard print but I think the Ultraboosts are what I’d wear much more often. I actually got my husband a pair of Ultraboosts for his birthday which was yesterday and he loves them. He’s never had Adidas runners before. I forgot to ask him this morning how he liked them for his work out.

I haven’t tried the Nike’s on yet but definitely, want to.

I love my ultraboosts but I recently bought a pair of nike epic react flyknits and I looooooove them. They are supposed to release new colorways soon too. Check them out.
