Style Tuesday (on Wednesday): Running Skirts – Do or Don’t
My friend and running buddy Jenn excitedly showed me her new running skirt at school pick-up one day recently. She had just picked it up. She pointed out all the features and then told me how flattering it was. This is the one she got (with a cute little black ruffle on the back):
Easily persuaded, I decided to try one out.
I bought this:
Usually I’m a size 4 but in this, I bought a size 6. The shorts underneath are snug. The waistband is loose. I am looking forward to trying it out on a run. I first need to do a couple of laps of our main floor with the tags on to see if it’s worth taking off the tags.
But I’m still not sure about the running skirt…
Is it a do or a don’t?
In my run on Sunday, there was a woman wearing a ridiculous running outfit with way too much going on. It included a running skirt, coordinating capris underneath, a patterned (matching) tank, armsleeves, and a hat. I thought to myself… oh, those are the people who wear running skirts. But really, maybe not. I could say the same thing about the sleeves, or the capris or the tank.
Anyway, I need opinions – let’s call it an informal poll of sorts (until I figure out how to embed a proper poll in my post) – are running skirts a do or a don’t? The cute group of fashionable women sitting beside me at Bridgehead say they are definitely a do (and they’re great for tennis too).
So, now I need to hear from you all… don’t be shy.
