What's Your FitStyle?

This post was sponsored by Athleta.  I was not compensated, but was given a credit to purchase the items in this post, which I selected myself.  Opinions are my own.

I am not a fashionista.  In my younger years I did model and I still can't put together an amazing outfit.  I did NOT put together the outfit in this pic, but the "fierce" stare is all my own.
After 12+ years of gymnastics and track, I am much more comfortable in workout clothes than couture.
When Athleta contacted me to try some of their products and write about my own FitStyle I thought, "Now that's a fashion post I can do."  I love need to combine cute pieces with comfort and a dash of fashion.  Since Kyle and I are doing a good amount of pool and beach time this summer I decided to select pieces that could work for those places.

My favorite piece that I picked hands down is this Kali gray maxi skirt (which is on sale right now).  It's comfortable, easy to pack, and could be worn as a strapless dress too.
I dressed it with a striped tank and flip flops for a casual dinner in Clearwater.
Summers in Florida demand maxi dresses.  I have several long ones, but this striped racerback one caught my eye.  It's a different length and the ruching gave it an interesting look.  During our staycation at Shingle Creek I wore it to dinner with gladiator sandals and a white ceramic watch.  It's also a good travel items since it packs easily.
Finally, since it's beach season I decided to brave my fears and select a bathing suit online. What drew me to this suit was the boy cut shorts and the design on the back of the top.  It's a sporty suit perfect for swimming and beach volleyball.
Unfortunately I don't think it's the most flattering suit on me and in a store I probably wouldn't have selected it.  Athleta does have a great return policy, if you find yourself in a situation where you buy something that you don't love.

I paired my swimsuit with sunglasses, a beach hat, and sunscreen.  Do NOT forget to wear sunscreen when you're out in the sun! That's my PSA for the day.
Thanks Athleta for the fun post!
