I'd been eyeing the Nike Running Skapris for quite a while, thinking the combination of a running skirt with some capri tights would flatter me. And I like to be flattered!
Nike Ladies Skapri: cheaper on Wiggle
But the price tag for the flattery of the Nike Ladies Skapri, would set me back about 72 dollars, and that was too high a price to pay. But then I found webshop Wiggle.co.uk, where they cost only 37 dollars!
So I threw them in my virtual basket, and ran to the virtual check out. A few days later my Nike Ladies Skapri arrived, and of course I put them on immediately. They felt lovely, and really comfortable. And there was this handy little pocket at the back, which closed with a zipper, where you can put your key and stuff.
Nike Ladies Skapri: running either too hot or too cold!
So all was well, but every time I went out for a run, I didn't wear my skapri! And this is why: Nike Ladies Skapri look best when worn with a little tank top, or a short sleeved shirt. But every time the weather was warm enough for bare arms, the tights were too hot. And if the tights weren't too hot, I had to wear a long sleeved top, and didn't look so good.
Yes I admit it: I'm a woman. And I'm vain.
Cut off the tights!
But then I had this brilliant idea: why not cut off those pesky tights?! After all, I had nothing to lose. So I did, and it's a big succes! I wear my new little running skirt all the time.
To sum up
The combination of a running skirt with capri tights doesn't do it for me. I prefer to only wear a running skirt during Summer, and during Winter I prefer only tights.
Do you have any experience with the combo: running skirt and tights?
What do you think of running skapris?
