Tough Girls Wear Skirts...



About a week ago, I received an email forwarded to me about a sale at skirt sports. I think it is a holdover from my tennis love affair but I am a skirt runner. I have shorts too but I love running skirts. In the winter, however, the running skirt is not all that practical. I have spandex type knee pants that I generally wear but didn't really have any full length pants that I felt comfortable in for running. They all made my legs resemble that a sausage link and that really isn't the look I am trying to achieve. Not that the sweaty body, head band, no make up look that I go with when running is either but...


Back to the sale... Buy $75 at Skirt Sports get a tough girl skirt free. I checked out their site and the skirt is normally $90 so a pretty good deal! CHA-CHING. I opted to buy a tough girl and then get a spare for free. Lord knows I can't be washing the skirt every day so I at least need 2, right? I placed my order. I had my doubts. Were they going to be too short, too long, too shiny? These are the things that bother me...

Y'all, I got my package today. LOVE THEM with a capital LOVE. The skirt has boot cut clingy type pants. Not real spandex but clingy enough to provide warmth. I cannot wait to wear them. The material is soft like buttah and extremely comfortable with an ipod pocket under the skirt. It comes in 3 colors, pink, navy and black. I am all about the black so both of mine are in that color. Mine is a small and seemed very true to size. I generally can wear a small off the rack without any issues and this was no exception. If you are in the market for some running pants with a cute little skirt for extra booty coverage, give these a look. I might have to give them a go tomorrow night for tennis :) Too bad they don't have a ball pocket.

WooHoo! I love Skirt Sports!! You must have been reading my mind, I've been checking their site lately trying to decide between another running skirt (Gym Girl--I gotta have the bike type shorts) and/or the Sweetest Thing capri.

I want it all!!

Glad you like your new pants--they look great! Happy running!

I have not tried a skirt yet. I see them and they look great but I haven't enough courage yet! I need to suck it up and just try them! Glad you are happy with yours.

I always wear skirts and even try to layer with leggins in the winter. Now they have them attached, so cool!
Thanks for sharing!

Purchased my first 2 skirts this summer and LOVE the way they look, but the legs do ride up some. I can wear them for up to 6-7 miles, longer no. I am sure I will try some others I just hate spending the money and then hoping they work out.
