Customer: Jessica Lanier from Menlo Park, Calif.

Spotted at: Athleta, Store #4895, Town & Country Village, Palo Alto

What brought you into Athleta today? “My sister, actually — she has been wearing a lot of Athleta clothing. And I saw the recent catalogue, which is really cute. So I came in."

What did you purchase? “A few of the legging capri pants. I am going on a trip — a really outdoorsy trip — but I want to look put together. Athleta is the perfect combo. Everything is really comfortable, but looks really put together and stylish. So I got a bunch of different pants and some cute loose tops to mix and match."

Jessica went home with a pair of Aspire Ankle pants (available in black currant, flint grey, forest green and black). Made from silky sleek Featherweight Stretch™ fabric, the pants feel weightless. And, thanks to a sporty chic tapered leg that scrunches up for more breathing room, the pant easily goes from studio to street.

To complement the pants, Jessica picked the Aster Sweater — perfect for pairing with leggings and layering over your favorite tank or tee.

What was your favorite store experience or item you saw in the store today? “The variety of product — there are so many different pants. They are dressy but casual... I was really impressed by the styles."

Where do you get your style inspiration? “Friends."

Happy hiking, Jessica!
