Never go shopping when you are hungry
There is this saying that one should eat before going shopping for groceries. Doing so, would avoid that you buy too much food. But what about clothing? Is there a rule to avoid buying something one doesn’t need?
Anyhow, when I saw this pink Adidas jacket at Fred Meyers a couple of years ago, I was attracted by its bold color. To be precise, I bought it because I loved the color despite I don’t need a track jacket. I am not a runner and don’t jog outside. You know, for my money, the great outdoors is the space between buildings. And yes, even at 40 below zero I wear a bikini rather than run (to stay warm). So why would I need this jacket? So to speak I committed an effect purchase at the grocery store! Is that gross?
Styling a pink Adidas track jacket beyond the gym
Ever since I gave this piece a place in my closet, it saw the light of day only in a posh combinations with a skirt or a dress. I always wore it instead of a cardigan or blazer.
In fall, I used it to create a summer-to-fall transitional look with a floral dress from summer. The abstract flowers have all kind of hues and shades between white and red. Thus, adding a pink jacket is a no-brainier. The gray accents of the dress are picked up by the snakeskin fall sandals. So to speak this look of the day is a combination of the snake print trend and the mixing prints trend. You can find more on how to style snake print outfits in the post at the link.
Do you like how I styled my Adidas jacket with the floral dress? If so, please share the look with your family and friends on twitter or facebook or pin it to your pinterest board. Thanks you for your support.
A high quality athleisure piece can be incorporated into your everyday and even work outfit. The latter, of course, only applies when your office has a Casual Friday culture. See the post at the link for an athleisure styling guide.
Incorporating you active wear into your everyday wardrobe is also a great method to slow down fashion by getting more outfits from the pieces you already own.
Do sometimes buy clothing you don’t need just because you like something about them? Just curious, let me know in the comments.
