To be honest, I did not like it when the bike shorts trend made a comeback. Any time I tried them, they would cut into my skin, creating a sausage-like effect that was anything but cute. That is, until I tried on these black bike shorts from IVL Collective.
They have a super stretchy waistband that doesn’t dig into my midsection. And the fabric is so soft with just the right amount of stretch to prevent sausage thighs. I never thought I would say this, but I am officially a bike shorts convert.

I paired my black bike shorts and black sports bra with a peach lightweight jacket. It’s usually cool in the morning when I walk Jack Jack so it’s nice to have something to throw on that I can tie around my waist when the sun gets stronger. I wore it with my Ikat face mask from my collab with Sunday Ritual. And I can’t wait to wear it with my new pastel tie dye face mask, coming out soon!

I wish I could say I’ve been wearing my bike shorts on daily runs. But ever since the safer at home order went into effect, I haven’t been the best at working out. I do daily walks and neighborhood hikes with Jack Jack. But other than that mostly just do my physical therapy exercises once a week.
I can’t wait until studios open up again in LA. I finally was able to do a Pilates class right before the lockdown and I miss it! You can read more about my fitness journey here.
