The 8:00 a.m. Class


September is here and already the weather here in Toronto has dropped! Goodbye summer, and hello 8 a.m. classes. That's right, I have an 8 a.m. class this semester which means wake up at 6 a.m. to catch the 6:40 a.m. train to make that 8 a.m. class. And on top of that, I don't get home that day until 7:30 p.m. RIP @me. So, on a day where I have to wake up early and stay stay downtown late for back to back classes, that last thing I want to be is uncomfortable with what I'm wearing. Luckily, Sport Chek was kind enough to help me prep for back to school with some athleisure essentials!

In a blog post I published last semester, The 8:00 a.m. Exam, I explained the benefits of the whole athleisure trend — a trend I didn't really join until I had to wake up for that exam. The great thing about athleisure is not only its comfort, but its simplicity and ease of pulling off. For this look, I have the Adidas Trefoil Logo Hoodie, black skinny jeans, and Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers. At its core, this outfit is pretty basic: top, jeans, sneakers. But the trick to athleisure is using those sporty elements and logos as features that add to the outfit. Accessorize with those logos and design elements of the pieces themselves to create an outfit that isn't so basic. And on a day where you can't be bothered to use under-eye concealer, don't forget your sunglasses to hide those dark circles! 

For all your back to school essentials and to perfect your athleisure look this fall, check out Sport Chek! Will you be rocking the athleisure trend while it's still in?
