Fashion Fridays: Marathon Attire

18 May

It has been awhile since I wrote a Fashion Friday post. I just couldn’t really think of something great to showcase and write about.

Well, this week I figured out the perfect thing to share with you all….Marathon Attire.

The weather isn’t looking too desirable for the race on Sunday. But I am hoping that it stays cool for us in the morning. The race also moved the start up 30 minutes, which could make a huge difference.

Thank you, Weather.com

Because of this weather situation, I need to stay cool. But I also need to stay cute (umm, hello? Miles with Style here).

I have pondered over this outfit for days, and had a couple dress rehearsals in other outfits. But I finally find “the one”, and I am so happy to share this with you all (at this point you are probably thinking that I am WAY too focused on clothes, whatevs).

The Top

This is my favorite running top. It is the Lululemon Push your Limits tank. I now own it in 4 colors. It is the most supportive tank ever, and an added bonus is that I don’t have to wear an extra sports bra under it like I do with all of my other running tanks.

If you are ever in Lululemon and you see this tank, do yourself a favor and INVEST. It is amazing.

The Bottom

I blogged earlier this week that I purchased a new running skirt for this race. Well good news – the skirt came in time, and it is AMAZING.

This skirt is properly named Run: A Marathon Skirt.

It has tight shorts underneath, and a very lightweight skirt on top. It is so lightweight, I can’t really even tell that I am wearing anything!! Yesterday I was running in this and had to look down a couple times to make sure it was still there!

Best of all, I have nail polish that matches the neon pink in the skirt perfectly.

The Headwear

I now have bangs (little side swoopy ones), which require a sturdy headband to hold them back. Since the rest of my outfit is Lulu, I figured I should complete the look with a Lulu headband.

This is the Slipless Headband. And the name is perfect, because it does not slip at all.

I have completed quite a few training runs in this beauty, and I know it will be the perfect head accessory to complete my marathon look.

……………………………………………………………………………………………….

I am so relieved that this aspect of the race is finalized. I realize that I will look like Lululemon threw up on me, but that is just fine. I will comfortable and happy, and look cute too!
