A while ago I was asked if I wanted to try out something from the Go Girl Sport catalog. I looked at their offerings and was impressed with their philosophy and their logo intrigued me… it’s a trademarked symbol of a flower with the word “go” in the center. One of the sayings they featured on the site was “Dare to go Girl!” And while the phrase “You Go Girl!” is kind of cliche’…. it’s also awesome and I don’t care if it’s a little overused because it’s an empowering phrase!
I chose to try out the tuxedo skort… I keep wanting to be a skirt runner, which is odd because in reality… I’m not a skirt person. But for some reason I keep seeing women in running skirts and think they look way cute and stylish… and I want to be “that woman”.
The skirt arrived and it is well-made and really cute. It has the Go Girl Sport logo on the back, but not in an obnoxious way (like that whole Victoria’s Secret pink collection places words across the butt of pants). The white stripes on the front are a mesh material that would allow air to flow through for good ventilation.
I tried it on and felt the waist was a little looser than I’d like, but overall the fit was good. And I even thought I looked kind of cute in it… even if it did inspire me to strike a cheerleader-esque pose.
But when I went for a run in it, I had the same problem that I always do in running skirts… the shorts ride up. And I don’t like that feeling at all!
I’m willing to give the skirt another shot, but there is no way I will be running with other people when I do, I don’t want to deal with the public embarrassment of constantly pulling my shorts down in front of others.
But it’s not a total bummer… I also got a necklace form them with their logo on it. And I’ve worn it A LOT. And I get complimented on it every time I do. I’ve come to realize that I don’t pick my accessories on “how trendy is this?” but more on “does this have a meaning for me?” And each time I put that necklace on it’s like a simple little talisman to inspire me for the day.
