I am not an athletic person.
I try to stay healthily active and I really enjoy a nice competitive game of water polo, but my talents do not typically relate to anything in any way “sporty.” Be this as it may, I do consider myself a fashionable person, and for this reason I found myself feeling just slightly pressured by the athletic-inspired fashion trend that first hit the runways last year and has only been growing stronger since then–not because I’m super influenced by trends, but because I hate limiting myself to a romantic/casual chic style. I don’t want my style to be easily defined as anything other than very “Jessi.”
In all honesty, I also have a fear of looking like I’m just getting back from the gym. This is why I decided to combine some high fashion and girly elements with my mesh shorts and t-shirt combo. The shredded tee is a DIY, by the way! Gotta layer a tank under that one . . .
