I have loved Athleta joggers for years now. I’ve been sharing about my favorite pair for a while now, and my go-to way to wear them in summer is with a graphic tank. This year, Athleta stopped making that exact pair, so it encouraged me to try some other options from the brand. They just kill it at lightweight, easy-to-wear pants that can work for a variety of occasions.

Athleta Brooklyn Joggers: 7 Easy Ways To Style For Summer

Weeks ago I discovered the gorgeous Brooklyn Joggers** and though they were backordered at the time they are so worth the wait! I got them in and knew they'd be my new favorites. I thought I'd style them a few ways to show their versatility. So here goes!

(Note: Sustainable items in the post are marked with a **)

1. Athleta Joggers + A Knotted Graphic Tee & Platform Sandals

I love a good knotted tee in the summer. I wear it this way with all of my high-waisted pants, shorts & skirts. As someone who has a shorter torso and not a well-defined waist, this is a really flattering look. I’m not OK with true crop tops and showing my midsection, but when the waistline is high-rise, and just a bit of skin shows when I move, I’m totally down. These platform sandals are the ones Emily and I have been raving about lately. I’ve had this cushiony snake print pair for years and they’re flattering and oh so comfy. Quite a few shades are left in stock on Amazon, and a few pairs of black and tan are on major sale at Nordstrom ($27!)

I am learning, I am listening to Black voices. I am committing to raising my daughter to also listen and learn and amplify Black voices. There is so much work to be done and I feel it in my soul and I hope we don't lose momentum as a society. I see the changes coming and I am only afraid of them not happening soon enough.

Resources I've Found Helpful For Learning:

13th - A documentary by Ava DuVernay exposing the racial injustice in the prison system in the US. Currently free on YouTube, also streaming on Netflix.

Sonja Renee Taylor - This brilliant human challenges me everyday to consider information I hadn't seen before due to my white privilege. Follow her. Listen to her. Buy her books. She is incredible.

White Fragility - This lays it ALL out. Every white person should read this book and we should all reframe our entire thinking about our country.

There are so many more. These are a start. We have created a resources page on for shopping Black-owned fashion businesses. Please commit to also increasing your shopping at Black-owned businesses to be at least 15% of your shopping.

Thank you so much for listening and learning along with me.

Is it swimsuit season? As I write this, it’s still 60 degrees here in Portland. We call it June-uary, haha. And this happens every year –we get some nice, hot days in May and then blammo: cool and rainy again for most of June.

But most of the country, I do believe, is fully in swimsuit season now, so I slathered on my lotion with these self-tanner drops and braved the try-on sesh for ya. After love-loving that Cupshe suit I got last year (the one that got a boatload of good reviews online), I knew I had to try a few more styles I saw pop up recently. So here we go, shall we?

1. Cupshe Mesh One-Piece Suit (Black)

‘Sexy’ is what they call this suit on Amazon, and while usually that makes me steer clear of something, I see what they’re talking about. Look at that mesh. I generally tend toward more sporty than sexy, but this one is good! I didn’t feel over-exposed in it — just sexy enough. That seems like a lame term now that I type it out. But I think you know what I mean.

I like the cut of this one a lot. It’s a bit retro and very flattering. The straps were almost too long for me though, and due to their cut, they aren’t adjustable. This is great for anyone a little taller than my 5 feet & 4 inches. The fit is true to size (wearing a small), and I’d say it’s pretty average in bust support and torso length. The back is a little cheeky, but not too much. The trend has really been leaning cheeky the last few years, and while I wasn’t on board at first…body-positive, y’all! Just do it.
