When I saw the whole skirt thing make its appearance at the start lines I said “over my dead body”.
You have to understand…. despite what my mom and sis will say about me being high maintenance (it’s really only because it takes me an hour to straighten my hair) and despite my mom calling me her ‘little glitter girl’ – I am NOT girly.
My idea of ‘dressing up’ is a top with some sort of ruffle or embellishment with jeans. Last night to our 6 year anniversary dinner I had on a ruffled top with khaki shorts and wedges. I think the last time I wore a dress was when I was pregnant approx 3 years ago – and it was my wedding/funeral dress (sadly worn to 1 wedding and 2 funerals) – and I got it for $9.99 at Ross.
So you can understand how I would be totally opposed to a RUNNING SKIRT. Running just seems like the last place you need to worry about fashion. I typically throw on my favorite shorts and shirt – regardless if they match, my Newtons which because of their neon orange/green color scheme go with NOTHING, and my favorite red/white Newton Headsweats visor. Yes, I clash…. horribly.
Well the other day I went to Heather’s house and she had just gotten in her new ‘Mums in Bloom’ running skirt from runningskirts.com. TOTALLY cute!!!! Loved the way it looked! I suddenly felt this urge to update my running wardrobe and maybe at least make an attempt to look a little more put together on race days.
Stay tuned to Heather’s review on the running skirt from runningskirts.com I may be willing to try – but not sure if I will ever fully convert to the skirt.
