Athleisure Staple: Adidas Track Pants

April 1, 2020

Well, we’re on week three of lockdown here in Silicon Valley, and I know most of you are now living under some sort of stay at home orders as well.  How is it going?  I’d love to hear from you.

Life looks really different than it did a month ago, but we’re adjusting over here!  The hubby and I each took a spare room to create work-from-home office spaces.  We’re actually preparing meals at home, instead of getting take out. The dogs are getting SO many walks every day.  We’re enjoying the slower pace.  Though watching the news turns everything into a nightmare of course.  After catching up on the news, I find myself doing guided mediations to relax.  For me it helps.

Shop the Look


Along with any new lifestyle comes a change in wardrobe needs.  Athleisure which was never any interest to me is suddenly all I want to shop for.  I’m trying to create a closet of easy-to-wear, work-from-home & play-at-home outfits.  I haven’t done much shopping (yet), but I did invest in these classic Adidas Track Pants. I think they’re winners.  They’re more flattering than I expected and super comfy of course.  I like that the pockets and the hems have zippers.  They run true to size (I’m wearing a medium) and are now 40% off at Nordstrom.  Here I paired them with wardrobe staples like a white tee, denim jacket, and classic Chucks.

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!

    My school is teaching remotely (week 3, whooooo!), so it’s a nice top over yoga pants for Zoom classrooms! Just saw that CA public schools are closed for the rest of the year, so I’m waiting for my (private) school to make the call as well.
