Inexplicably I LOVE being clad in uberfeminine attire whilst working out when I own only a few of these garments designed for non-exercise activities.
(truly. Ren Man & I have a deal. I’ll pretty much get gussied up and accompany him ANYWHERE–he just needs to provide the necessary attire. He’s my personal shopper.)
That said, I tend to wear my workout skirts for more than just exercise.
If I like them (and I’m a picky one) Ill don them for absolutely everything.
From bosu to brunch.
From weights to wine.
As a result, even with my new decision to hold fewer giveaways (myriad reasons. wanna know? let me know.), I caved immediately when it came to Shabby Apple’s Firefly Pose skirt.
I think I shocked the company a tad with my immediateimmediate YES! but what’s not to love about a badass skirt & a company who cares?
After receiving, wearing, washing & LOVING the skirt my answer is a resounding NOTHING!
The skirt, like its philanthropic company, rocks.
First I ran in my Firefly Pose skirt. I did realize (given the name. I’m quick that way.) it’s intended for yoga–but I was curious what it would be like to run in.
VERDICT: The skirt is NOT for the Texas heat & running. It IS for the indoor air-conditioning and treadmill lolloping. In summation, it all depends on your climate, however the liners shorts (lovingly displayed below) were fab fitting and didn’t ride up at all.
Next I yoga’d in my Firefly Pose skirt.
VERDICT: Id never done yoga in a skirt before & was nervous it would cause me to be so distracted (fearing exposing myself) that Id not be able to get my OM-on. I think because Id already run in the skirt & trusted the fit of the shorts I found I didn’t fret and wasn’t distracted. Comfy. Comfy. Comfy.
Finally’ I made Ren Man take me to a movie in my Firefly Pose skirt.
VERDICT: Heaven, People, heaven. Now, some of this may have been due to the fact we had a sitter & saw a semi-grownup low-brow flick, but I really did feel pretty fancypantsGIRLIE in my skirt. In addition I had zero fears of forgetting to cross my legs & pulling an insertherethenameofthelateststartoflashtheworldherJAYJAY.
