It’s not exactly a secret around here that I love Skirt Sports. I’ve been running in the Happy Girl skirt for years now.
In fact, I love them so much that I got chosen to be one of the Skirts Sports Ambassador Captains. But let’s get real here – I’d wear their skirts even if I wasn’t an ambassador. And I’d try to convert all of you to skirt runners as well, because I happen to think they make some great products.
But here’s the thing. Even though I spent a lot of time in my Happy Girls pre-run, I very seldom wore them post-run. And if I wasn’t running that day? I was unlikely to put on a skirt. I just didn’t tend to wear athletic clothing when I wasn’t working out or planning to work out soon.
Nicole DeBoom changed my mind about that. She mentioned on instagram that one way to save packing space was to workout each day in the outfit you wore the previous day. Suddenly a light bulb went on in my head and I packed for Asheville with that in mind.

Anyways, back to Asheville. I packed 3 Happy Girl Skirts as my bottoms for most of the trip and a Free Me tee, a Don’t Sweat It tee and the Katherine tank as tops. I also packed a cute non athletic skirt and two pairs of shorts, just in case. Spoiler: I never wore my shorts or other skirt. Good thing we had a washer and dryer in the VRBO house.
I traveled in Skirt Sports. (yes, I was working using a mobile hot spot while Beer Geek drove.)
I visited a brew pub in Skirt Sports.
I hung out in the Presidential Suite in Skirt Sports.
I hiked in Skirt Sports.
I went out to a brewpub in Skirt Sports.
I hiked some more in Skirt Sports.
I went out to another brewpub in Skirt Sports. (I, um, did that pretty much every night.) I may even have run home from the brewpub with a six pack on my back…
I white water rafted in Skirt Sports.
I went out to lunch with friends in Skirt Sports.
I hiked yet another hike in Skirt Sports.
Oh, and I ran in Skirt Sports, a whole lot of times.
The only thing I regret? I didn’t pack enough skirts.
Have you tried Skirt Sports? No? You should. The new patterns are awesome. And the older patterns are on sale right now. Just sayin’.
And we aren’t going to talk about the fact that I have decided I like the Gym Girl Ultra on hot days. Because then I’d have to admit that I’m buying a whole new set of skirts. Good thing I’ve got them all organized.
