Most of my friends don’t exercise- well at least, not that I know of. I don’t have any real running pals (except my husband)- well, let me clarify, my one running partner I had a few years ago up and moved 2 hours away..so this hasn’t really been a topic I have discussed much in person.
A lot of ladies I know are comfortable enough just wearing tights and a t-shirt when working out or running but I prefer wearing a skirt. There are a select few companies around that make running/workout skirts with appropriate length (I’m meaning to the knee or lower). My mum buys hers from a manufacturer in Israel (crazy..I know). I’ve had a few U.S. companies bookmarked for years- just keeping an eye on what they’re making and I have to say year on year they are getting better and better!
Flash Back to 2014 (I think) with my favourite Nike tights (that I still wear) and a Suzanne Grae stretch skirt from my frugal grandma!
Surprisingly Nike and Lorna Jane have both brought out below the knee running skirts in the last 12 months that look fantastic as well! I’ve linked three of the top ones on my list as well as some comments on each below.
From Left to Right:
All three shops mentioned above ship to Australia (and worldwide for that matter!).
I hope this is helpful in your search for modest running wear!
Finding modest clothing today is no where near as hard as it was just 5-10 years ago. Mostly everything we bought had to be taken down, stretched out, worn with a singlet top etc You get the idea. On top of making everything modest the cost for any item of clothing with sleeves and the appropriate length was always so much more because the items were rare!
I wanted to do a quick roundup of some of my go-to stores for modest clothing here in Sydney. Some are online, others you can visit in store and see a huge range of modest skirts, tops and dresses!
Well I have been super slack when it comes to posting.. we can call it lack of inspiration! Guys.. what would you like to see posts on? Apart from photos of my amazing daughter I am totally lacking in the inspirational field.
If you follow me on insta you’ll know that Ava turned two last week! I took some quick photos the week before so I would have a current photo to post for her birthday (yes, I’m that mum)! Just as her little scratch on her cheek has been healing (it’s been almost 5 months) she fell and knocked her head on the heater two days ago and now has a gash near her eye… I thought only boys were supposed to be rough?! Anyways.. On a happy side note- I thought Ava needed 2 year old immunizations (yes, I’m also that mum that immunizes her daughter)..wellllllll…she actually doesn’t get any more until she’s 4! Woohoo for Ava!
So.. here is our baby girl.. 2 years on..
Today I’m bringing to you a few new and a few previously-posted podcasts! My favourite’s this month would definitely be the Fierce Marriage podcast and the Hey Dad podcast! Fierce Marriage is a conversation with Ryan and Selena Frederick on all things building and protecting your marriage with a Godly perspective. The Hey Dad podcast is a bunch of guys talking about dadhood- the funny, the ugly and everything in between- they are great to listen to!
