I love running. And my inner fashionista spills over into that passion also. Although, I need to think about function and not just fun colors or the latest gear.
I need a pair of sunglasses made for activities such as running. My normal, cheap sunglasses tend to slide down my nose so I have been going without. I have 4 more pounds to go until I reach my sunglass reward but I have decided on the ones I want. Meet the Oakley LBD (yes, little black dress). Fashion meets function.
And in that color too. This is the shape of my Chanel sunglasses so I know they will look good.
Meet the Extrovert Tank. I love pink and orange for running. I have several items in those colors (tank, t-shirts, pants, sport bras). I just love the double straps and piping.
Lastly, I really need some running shorts that aren’t past the knee or just past the butt. Because I have a big butt and somewhat big thighs short running shorts ride up and chafe (TMI?). I wore them once and said never again. I still wear them for P90X but sadly they do not work for running.
That being said, I like compression shorts for running. It is hard to find the in-between length at stores (like Target as I love the C9 line there). I did some digging and found a couple of pairs. They are just plain but I need something shorter than over the knee for the hot summer days!
My first choice would be the Nike Tech 8″ Shorts, mostly because I love Nike’s products. I own a lot of Nike. The problem is these shorts are $54 + $8 shipping.
Then on Zappos I found a pair of Under Armour 7″ Compression Shorts. They are only $27.99 and ship for free. Now that is a deal I can get behind. I have never worn anything from Under Armour but I have heard good things about them. This may be too good of a deal to pass up.
I am not too picky about the actual length. I would think anything 5.5-6″+ would work. The 2-3″ are just too short for me. I love them but they do not love me back. :(
Tell Me: What are you currently craving for the summer? Do you collect cute active wear like I do? If so, what brand(s) do you like? Do you go for form, function, fashion or all three?
