Athleisure Namastay comfy Tahoe U blog Summer Weekend Guide women and dog doing yoga

It's official, ‘Athleisure’ has a place in the dictionary: “A style of clothing worn as athletic apparel but also suitable for casual, everyday wear.” Many say that athleisure is a way of life. We say it’s a way to pull off looking chic while secretly being comfy enough to nap.


Athleisure wear is the answer to your hectic day. It will create the illusion that you just finished spin class. Whereas in reality you just downed an entire pizza. Our tips for the perfect outfit will have you wearing athleisure seven days a week. Most importantly; there’s finally an excuse to wear leggings as pants.

Here’s the solution to finding the balance of athletic wear and street style so you can be prepared for whatever you need to take on that day.


1. Tahoe University Tank, Strut This Purple Camo Leggings, Sir Madam Reserved blanket & Karala Yoga Mat Bag: In-store purchase 2. Blanc Shoes by Zadig and Voltaire $190 3. Black Trucker Hat by Tahoe University $32

Now that you're all dressed up, let's give you somewhere to go. Here's a few places where you can debut your Athleisure style this weekend:

1. Pumps on Pedals Women's Evening Ride

2. Friday Sunset Kayak Tours

Grab a group of friends and family and head to the Lake to take part in an evening of Instagramable Tahoe sunsets and pristine stargazing. Throw on a light jacket or hooded sweatshirt to take your outfit from day to night and avoid the chill. Also make sure to check out the full moon paddle tours while the summer season lasts! (Image via Xperience Days)
