a RunningSkirts care package ...

Remember that little post I wrote about my LOVE of RunningSkirts? And how I really, really wanted the pink and white polka dot one? Well, guess what came in the mail yesterday?

That's right. A pink and white polka dot skirt AND a pair of Swift Socks Compression Socks, courtesy of the wonderful girls over at RunningSkirts. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you a thousand times over. To me, it's a running outfit made in heaven.

I can't wait to try everything out. Which means I'm going to rock the gear on my run this morning (and on the girls' school trip, since I won't have time to change). A super cute running skirt and knee high socks is totally acceptable casual wear, right? I thought so.

So cute! So, if you buy 16 skirts, you get one free?? LOL

Staci Dombroski said...

Love it!!! I think of casual wear as workout clothes and pajamas. Anything else is considered "dress up" :)

I LOVE hat skirt! So cute!! I just got my very first running skirt and I can't wait to see how I like it. It's just boring old black, not feisty pink like that one!

Love the Skirt!!
I have 2 running skirts from Lululemon and love them but I will have to give the Runningskirt a try.

misszippy said...

That is an awesome skirt!

SarahwithanH said...

I was just inspired to order my first runningskirt skirts! You should definitely be a spokeswoman, you're very convincing :)

EricaH said...

when it looks that cute it is definitely acceptable casual wear. I have been eyeing a capri skirt of theirs don't know if my legs would look that good in one of their regular skirts.:)

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

You lucky ducky! It looks great! How very nice of the RS girls to grant your wish and then some. I am sure you have sent loads of runners to Running Skirts just through your photos of how cute they are! I am still trying to win one. (cheapcheapcheap) I may have to break down and order one (or three).

Judi said...

What a treat!

Hope you had fun on the school trip - where did you go?

Tricia said...

The ladies at RunningSkirts.com are too sweet. :)

MCM Mama said...

Awesome! I am so going to have to get one of their skirts!

Tortuga_Runner said...

You are the perfect investment in sales/marketing. I love it and will be treating myself to another skirt, likely this same design, this week! Thanks for sharing, totally cute!
