My athleisure obsession continues.

So on Friday I met up with two friends for dinner and drinks. I got to the Flatiron District a little bit early, with the intention of ducking into the supercool store Bandier—where one could shop sleek, sharp, appropriate-outside-the-gym athletic wear—but instead, piqued my athleisure obsession further a few doors down via this London-bred boutique: Sweaty Betty.

Premium printed leggings, neoprene crop tops, pretty underthings, and adorable sportswear galore lined the store. And, yes—all of the above ridiculously overpriced.

But alas, ridiculously overpriced things have a way of growing on you (yes, Lululemon, you), and now I can’t stop thinking about Sweaty Betty!

Take these Santa Marta Run Tights, for example: gahh, so cute!

Santa Marta Run Tights, $160. UPDATE 2/29/16: I recently tried these on and yes, they were adorable. Just note that they are better suited for running, and not so much for yoga as they are quite see-through when you bend over. 🙂

There was a space-agey grey version of this sweater at the store that I totally pictured myself wearing to work. But then I already wear quite a lot of grey these days. 😀
