On Neal: Harper shorts, Ace Long Sleeve Tee, Irving Packable Jacket (all run TTS, Neal wears a Medium) c/o of Lolë On me: Sierra Edition Leggings (run a little big in the waist–so you could size down if you’re on the fence. I’m wearing small!), Martha Sweater (supposed to be oversized! Runs TTS) I also love this turtleneck version! Maria Packable jacket (runs TTS–I also own their Emeline jacket, which is similar, and love it too!) c/o Lolë
So excited about this post today! (And you will be too!) Something cute, practical, and comfy for you–something cute, comfy, and practical for him ?–ding ding ding–sign me up!
Remember one of my favorite athletic brands, Lolë? They’re a Canadian brand–the one I went to Montreal with last year–remember? (See this post and this post!) Neal and I are teaming up again with them today to style some of their new arrivals, because…
Neal was one of very few guys picked to be the FIRST to promote their new Lolë mens line! ??
We are SO honored!
When it comes to my favorite brand partnerships at all time, they are at the top! They are truly a wonderful company (we got to tour their beautiful headquarters in Montreal–they have on-site fitness classes all the time, they go above and beyond to make sure their employees have a healthy work-life balance!) they actively try to make the world a better place, and they make awesome, quality clothes that you will LIVE in. (LOLË actually stands for Live Out Loud Everyday!) It’s a brand you really feel good buying.
And speaking of Neal’s workout clothes–he’s often wearing them in most of his instagram story cameos ? A few of you have messaged me on Instagram asking, “how do I get my guy to stop wearing his old ratty college clothes to the gym and wear nice workout clothes like Neal instead?”–this post is for you guys, especially!
We had a lot of fun shooting these photos this past weekend in my favorite Chicago park–Humboldt Park–and we’ll be wearing these essentials for many fall days to come–walking around the neighborhood on the 606 trail, “running” to Humboldt park (aka Neal running circles around me as I refuse to do anything but power walk ?) lounging around the house, and everything in between.
If your guy is the kind that constantly only wants to wear a fleece zip-up because he hates the bulk of a warmer jacket (but you both know he NEEDS a warmer jacket…) this is going to be the best investment he’s ever made. It’s incredibly warm–rain, wind and snow repellant–but it’s very thin and folds up into a teeny tiny pouch–so if you’re going on any trips, it’s the ideal jacket to bring! Perfect for long fall walks, or cold winter runs.
It also has zipper pockets and even a key cord to ensure quick access and that they never fall out of your pocket. (Plus, let’s state the obvious–it’s so much more aesthetically pleasing than that old pilling fleece zip-up ?).
This all-purpose tee is a classic go-to for all occasions for colder seasons. It’s 100% Pima cotton (which is very rare in most activewear brands!) It’s stronger than regular cotton and it’s great for all fall activities from running outside to tailgating ? Neal prefers cotton to dry-fit type shirts in the fall/winter because they’re much softer, less scratchy, and more versatile!
The fit is also great–it’s somewhere between a slim and a relaxed fit, so it’s super comfortable and soft, but still looks polished. He is also obsessed with their grey crewneck sweatshirt for the same reasons–and he has his eye on their new half-zip too which is made of fine merino wool, which is super soft and naturally moisture wicking!
These are the first activewear piece that Lolë introduced for men! Neal is always looking for versatile active shorts (that aren’t his green college football IWU shorts ?) and these fit the bill! He’s very picky about length–these aren’t too short or too long–at 7″ they’re perfect–and they have angled pockets to make sure keys, wallet, etc stay put–as well as a zippered pocket! They are also eco-conscious (OEKO-TEX® certified!) He’s got his eye on their awesome sweatpants!

I love love love this jacket! Not only do I love how it looks, but it’s so incredibly warm for being so light! It’s their newest packable jacket that is filled with a vegan alternative to down–it has the warmth equivalent of 700 fill-power goose down (that’s the warmth of your warmest winter jacket!)
Like Neal’s, it also packs down into a teeny little pouch, making it ideal for travel, especially if you’re planning to go on a lot of outdoor adventures in chilly weather. It’s great for layering or wearing on its own, and it comes in ton’s of colors!

I love Lolë’s leggings because I often get really hot when I’m doing hot yoga or Orangetheory (I have a very low tolerance for being hot ?) and a lot of workout pants can be thick and make me feel like I’m suffocating–these are made of a different material that is thinner but still substantial, so you feel “held in” without the extra heat! Because the fabric is different than most, it’s also way less prone to pilling as well! It’s quick-drying, has 4-way stretch, moisture wicking, UPF 50+ (so great for running outside!) and like the men’s shorts, also eco-friendly!
If you’re looking for more leggings reccos, I also love their burst leggings!

If you’ve been looking for the perfect slouchy, lightweight v-neck sweater–this is it! ?? It’s perfect to throw on over your sports bra or tank to and from yoga, with leggings around the house, or out at night with jeans! After we shot this, we actually went out for a friend’s birthday dinner and I paired it with skinny jeans and heels! It was so cute. They have a ton of great sweaters right now that are really versatile and ideal if you wear a lot of athleisure but want something polished that you can dress up as well!

Lolë’s Lily totes are probably one of my biggest obsessions of life. They are SO incredibly versatile–it’s a tote that converts into a backpack, it has a sleeve for your yoga mat, a laptop sleeve, tons of pockets, water bottle pocket, a phone pocket, a key clip so you can always find your keys, a bag for your shoes, and a removable cosmetic pouch. It’s AMAZING.
Have you tried any Lolë pieces yet? Would love to know your thoughts!
