By no means am I glossing over current events. I’ve wept for the fallen firefighters in Texas and I’m truly a little sick at the breaking news in Massachusetts and Maryland. But as a follow-up to Wednesday’s post, I have two new beloveds.
Wednesday afternoon, I had time for a quick wog (walk + jog) before the League event. I was so excited to see my Yogasmoga package that I ripped it open and pulled on the crops in the living room.
Their fabric is comparable to the Luon by Lululemon (LLL) that I like so well, but no sheerness fears here. Their front pocket is made of a different, stretchier fabric, so my iPhone 4 in its Lifeproof case near fits horizontally, whereas it doesn’t even really fit vertically with the LLL similar front, interior pocket. There’s also a tiny little rear slip pocket that would hold a single house key but nothing more.
While I did take advantage of a VERY generous offer from Yogasmoga, I would without a doubt pay full price for these pants. I can assure you I’d wear them on the street, under a long tunic (and just might!), so they really are workout to wardrobe friendly. I followed their size chart and will say that I probably could have sized down, so if you are a runner who likes a TRUE compression fit, maybe consider sizing down. Bravo Yogasmoga!!
Yesterday, I slipped into my Skirt Sports Happy Girl Skirt (really a skort, but they call it a skirt) in Hot Chocolate. Sorry the image is so tiny, but I could only find the precise skirt and print on Amazon… I’ve loved that print since I first saw it, so when I got a special email code from Sierra Trading Post a few days ago, I couldn’t resist.
I will note before I go any further that this does run a little small. The other two Skirt Sports bottoms I have tend to run almost a size large, and this one fits. The fabric is softer than the Tough Girl Skirt, and I’ve already mentioned that I *LOVE* the side/thigh/shorts pockets on most Skirt Sports “skorts.”
Happy Girl is LONG by running/tennis skirt standards. It’s 16.5″ in front, and 17.5″ in the back. Despite having a generous backside, I still was aware of the extra length. I won’t say it’s too long; I’m mature enough to appreciate the coverage, but for example… I’ll walk, run and would even play golf in this skirt, but I’d have to shove a couple of tennis balls in each pocket and let you know whether I’d feel it’s too long for all the rapid laterals I do when I play tennis. Another plus is that I’d be perfectly comfortable scooting into the grocery store after a workout in this skirt. And yet, I didn’t feel it was two layers of warmth.
The shorts did not ride up, which is highly unusual for me.
What’s on your weekend agenda?
