ATHLEISURE, the fusion of daywear and athletic wear, has become one of my favorite new categories in fashion. As someone who doesn't have a ton of "casual" clothes, it's bomb to find pieces that are chic yet still appropriate for walking miles around the city in whilst I run my errands, etc. I think I'm one of many New Yorkers who literally gets ALL of my cardio from transportation -- I walk whenever possible!
Also VERY into the whole sporty-chic trend, I was BEYOND excited to hear that one of my favorite designers, Rebecca Minkoff, was teaming up with boutique retailer MIXOLOGY to debut her very own ATHLEISURE collection at their West Hampton store. Even better? I was DJing the party! Editors and shoppers jammed to tunes while imbibing on dangerously good Vita Fruit libations from VEEV Vodka (I managed to sneak a bottle onto the press bus home to make the ride back to the city a little more fun :P).
