I LOVE getting new running clothes. I admit, I'd rather go out and buy myself a new running skirt than a regular skirt. I only run in running skirts and for a 10-11 min/miler runner girl like me, I want to at least look cute in my turtle pace.
Ok, before I share my new purchases, I just want to say that I'm horrible at taking pics of myself. Not only does it feel weird to take pics of myself, the pics never come out well. So ignore the dirty mirror....I don't look as tan as these photos show, but at least you can see my new Running Skirts and new C9 Target tech shirts, I hope!
Outfit #1 (below) - This is one of two outfits that I might wear to my next race, the Rock 'N Roll USA Half in DC on St. Patrick's Day. It doesn't scream Leprechaun green, but it IS a lime green shirt and there is some lime green on the skirt. I've always wanted this skirt, the Mums Midnight Running Skirt, and I just got around to buying it. RunningSkirts.com has them on sale now (awesome deal), but I got mine at RunningWarehouse.com for a great deal too! What do you think?
Outfit #2 (below) - Another outfit that I could wear to my St. Patrick's Day RnR Half. Same shirt and the skirt is from RunningSkirts.com, the Azure Dot Running Skirt, another favorite skirt that I was so happy to discover on sale. What do you think of this one compared to Outfit #1 above? My favorite black Zensah sleeves are kinda harsh against these spring colors, but I need to wear them for my races.
Outfit #3 (below) - C9 tech shirts from Targets rule! Not only were they $9- a piece, they're comfortable too! I scored this shirt right after I bought the skirts and I couldn't believe how well the colors go. I have horrible Photoshopping skills, so the shirt color is a little off, but trust me, it matches the blue on the skirt. LOVE bargains!
Outfit #4 (below) - I call this my Barney shirt, another awesome find from Target. I love bright colors and this shirt, again....how can I refuse when it goes so well with my Mums Midnight Running Skirt? The color is a little more Barney than I wanted it to be - I think the skirt has more of a Violet color than this Barney color, but they complement each other well, I think. I love matching inexpensive tops to not-so-inexpensive bottoms and vice versa....and I love how versatile this Mums Midnight skirt is! I can create 5 outfits out of this skirt (purple, blue, lime green, black, and gray shirts to go with it!). It's my new favorite skirt!
So there you have it, my girly girl Three Things (plus one) Thursday of my new spring-y and summer-y running outfits. :P I can picture The Hubs just rolling his eyes at this post, hahaha!!
I could use some feedback....what do you think for St. Patty's RnR Half in DC - Outfit #1 or #2? Have you bought new running clothes lately? Or any new running gear? Please share!!
