So anyone who’s been about on this blog for a while may have noticed that I do a bit of hiking now and then, especially since moving to Hong Kong. That said, I’m not generally an active person, and I dislike most sports, so I don’t own much in the way of exercise clothing. Fortunately, I don’t do hikes that are so intense that I really need them! Instead, I opt for outfits like this, comfortable and practical for the outdoors, with a tiny bit of sporty flair. A light top is perfect for Hong Kong’s humidity, especially when working up a sweat, and leggings are practical to move around in, as well as giving some protection against mosquitoes here. I don’t like leggings without something over the top though, so shorts are the best choice for hiking, though if it’s really hot I’ll ditch the leggings and just wear the shorts. My Converse have seen me cover miles up hills, and even volcanos, so a few weekend hikes here are no problem. I also favour a backpack over a handbag for activities like this, as the weight is better distributed for balance, and it leaves me hands free, That doesn’t mean I buy sports bags though, instead opting for this cute one that I can use on plenty of other occasions.
