It’s a Sale!!! On A Sale!!!!

3 Mar

(This post contains an affiliate link)

sale-on-a-sale

That’s right!!

Right now, through March 12, you can get an extra 20% off of everything

All you have to do is use code SALE20 on any item on the Sales page! Using the code will make most items anywhere from 50-70% off! This is a great chance to grab some of the great items from the Fall and Winter collection before the Spring/Summer line is all up on the site!

And remember you also get Flat Rate Shipping for just $4.99. And if you spend $125 or more, shipping is free! 

Just a reminder, that you can’t use any other discount codes with this sale. If you want to buy full-priced items you CAN use 1SSCAPT20 but you’d have to put in a separate order.

So….it might be time to do some shopping!!!

HAVE FUN!!!

Back for Another Year!

10 Feb

AmbassadorStamp

I am, of course, late with this but…I am THRILLED to let you know that I was chosen again to be part of the Skirt Sports Ambassador Team as an Ambassador Captain for the third year!!

IMG_1084

This was taken after last year’s 13er – in the fountain at the CU UMC – one of my college goals was to “jump in the fountain” after finals. I never made it them, but look at me now!!!!

I’m really looking forward to it – this is such an awesome group of women from all walks of life, involved in all kinds of different healthy stuff!  Nicole DeBoom started a company to make women athletes feel amazing no matter what level of fitness they are at and no matter what size they are. It’s a brand for Every Woman. For Real Women. The models on the site? Most of them are Ambassadors or work for the company – they aren’t actually professional models!

The aim of the company is to help every woman realize her potential. Through the Running Start program women are given the chance to overcome obstacles and start on the road to fitness  – training culminates in their running the 5k at the Skirt Sports 13er in June in Boulder Colorado

But it isn’t just that. Whether you’re an elite athlete or a back-of-the-packer (my peeps!) you can find your tribe over at Skirt Sports. And I’m telling ya’ll…the love is real! I’ve made some great friends and even got to meet one of my blogging idols last year (I’m looking it you Jenn from Scootadoot!)

Founder Nicole DeBoom has a podcast that is fantastic – Women Run the World. Look for it where you find your podcasts 🙂 She’s always talking with someone interesting and you’ll definitely learn something!

So, apart for getting to rep an amazing company I love, what’s in it for me? Well, I do get a pretty good discount on the clothes and with each new release of styles and patterns I get a gift certificate to spend. And I get to share with you, my friends, a 20% discount on nearly Every. Thing on the site (or in the store!) – use code 1SSCAPT20. This won’t work on clearance items, and it will expire on March 31 or sooner if we get personal codes before then! But, you will always get a new code!!

And, as an affiliate, if you click a Skirt Sports link in my blog, I get a few pennies from your purchase. If you don’t buy, I don’t get the pennies.

But, really. If you want to find some comfy clothes, either for running or hiking or some crazy Ultra running or triathlon thing, you should have a look! Give it a try…you’e got nothing to lose and an awesome tribe to gain!!

OMG!!! Please Come Back!!!

22 Sep

I promise to be better. Really I do!!!

A couple of quick things I want to shoot out to ya’ll now with something bigger coming soon. Seriously.  **NOTE: This post contains Affiliate Links!! **

The fabulous ladies over at Skirt Sports have opened up their Sewing Room – this means if you have an idea for a new skirt-item you’ll be given the chance to post it and maybe have it made.

Round one is in the ‘funding’ stage – designs that meet the funding goal by October 4 will be produced and you can own it! IF, you help fund it!

The top 2 designs are the High Waist Happy Girl Skirt in black – the Original Happy Girl is a longer version skirt that I know a lot of ladies wear to work! How convenient right? Now a higher waist means less chance for “muffin top”, for those of us who are susceptible to such…

 

And, I know I have a lot of tri-friends who would love the biking skirt, right?! After all, Nicole DeBoom herself won her triathlon wearing a skirt! So go here to fund the Cruiser Bike Girl – this is a re-working of an older skirt, making a comeback!!

So if you want either one of these skirts, click those links and make it happen! All fully funded skirts are expected to ship next May! Good luck!!

IMG_1623

I did it!!!!

Second, remember that Step Bet thing I told you about last month? Well, of course since I’ve actually been running lately (what?!?! Training? Crazy!) I ended up winning that first one…and was so full of myself, I joined another right away. I’m nearing the end of week 3 and still going strong-ish! Goals are a little higher, but so far so good!!

So, anyway ya’ll…I do plan to get back to some more regularly scheduled posting, now that I have some more regularly scheduled stuff going on!! And even when I don’t have stuff going on, I’m sure I can find something to say

Thanks for hanging in there!!! And keep coming back — bring your friends too!!!

It’s Time for an End of Season Sale!!!

29 Jun

Yes yes, I know I am WAY WAY behind, but I’ll be catching up realllll soon cause I have LOTS to share!!

IMG_1084

I am so excited to share great happenings with you!!!

But since I don’t want you to miss out, I wanted to let you know that  starting Friday,  there will be an End of Season Sale over at Skirt Sports!*  But because I love you for reading here you get to start shopping on Thursday!

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to visit Skirt Sports out in Boulder CO and saw a preview of the new fall / winter line. Now, it’s coming soon so we’ve got to make room for it – online and in the store!!  And you are gonna want some of this – new prints, new styles and some great cold weather gear!

Something to remember about sales this awesome — you can’t use my discount code (ORF20) for 20% off on sale items – which really is okay since this is an amazing sale!

For instance – all Spring and Summer bottoms will be 30% off (doesn’t include dresses, Tantrum or Psyched GGU and Happy Girl). Tops are 40% and past season items are 50-70% off!!! I mean – how can you resist, right?!!

A word of caution though, since this is pretty much a closet clearing sale, sizes will be limited so if you see something you MUST have (#alltheskirts maybe?) grab it!!

And if you have any question about fit, sizing or what I like, just ask away!

Now, what are you waiting for??? Get shopping!!! *

IMG_0874

Great summer Sale starting tomorrow — but you can shop NOW!!!!

*Post contains affiliate links. As a Skirt Sports ambassador, I receive some items as gifts and others at discount. All of my skirt opinions however, are my own!

My First Skirt!

6 Apr

The first time I ran a marathon I wore, I kid you not, cotton “running” tights covered by a pair of sweatpants and a short sleeved *cotton* tshirt under an old college sweatshirt. And probably cotton socks. You see, when we headed out to the starting area, it was chilly and it was raining. In LA. In March. My plan was to find my parents on the course (they were flying in that morning) and give them my outer clothes.

I never saw them. And I LOVED my sweatshirt so that wasn’t going anywhere. I ended up with bigger blisters on my feet than I’d ever seen (wet shoes/socks + cotton = ICK!) and, as many runners know, I learned in the shower that I had some pretty serious chafing under each of my arms. So severe that for almost 2 months I had scabs and the scars lasted another couple of years!

Why am I telling you this? Well…

After this first disaster I wasn’t finished with this marathon thing. Obviously. And, while I wasn’t ready to jump into running in a running bra and shorts I needed something different. I experimented for a few years and then one day, probably at a race expo, I saw a table for Skirt Sports!

WHAT? Skirts for running? That’s just crazy talk.

It had just so happened that I had recently been diagnosed with diabetes and the subsequent life-style changes had caused about a 20 pound weight loss. So I was ready for my legs to be out in the open!

I did suffer from a condition we like to call “Chub Rub” cause I guess it sounds cute – so I bought the original Gym Girl TRIKS (skirt spelled backwards – clever huh?!) but I also picked up a Marathon Girl or two.

Since then I’ve pretty much always run in skirts. I remember times when me showing up in my pink leopard spotted Marathon Girl was VERY unusual – and I was stopped many times to be asked about my skirts!

IMG_0298[1]

These might be my only remaining originals…no shorties underneath just panties

One of my most favorite marathon pictures ever is me at the NYC Marathon in my bright blue skirt

skirt nyc200huh

This picture was taken before everyone ran with phones that took pictures. Or, just phones 🙂

That is, until Marine Corps Marathon last year when I was out on the course in my Tantrum Lioness!!

786534_1094_0050

Not a great race, but I looked pretty good, huh?!

Over the years, Nicole DeBoom has come up with a few more styles, and added in tops and capris and now, even dresses! To be honest though, the dresses were an original and are coming back in new styles this spring!!

I don’t still have all of my originals on account of that 20 pound weight loss didn’t stick around! But I definitely keep adding to my collection – super helpful now that I’m an ambassador for the company that got me to show my legs out on a run!!

IMG_0297[1]

Skirts, tops, shorts and more skirts!! And one or two might be in the laundry…

And now you can show your legs – or not, if you’re a capri kind of gal – for 20% off at Skirt Sport with my discount code of ORF20 – just click below and start shopping!!

A New Sale – and Some Other News

9 Mar

So, there’s a new development on this here blog of mine! As you VERY well know, last Spring I became a Skirt Sports Ambassador. Well, today I took a big (for me) leap and became an affiliate for Skirt Sports as well.

 

What this means is, now, when you see one of my super cute Skirt Sports outfits on my blog and you decide that YOU need some cute too, you just click on the affiliate link to Skirt Sports and order as usual — using your super 20% off discount code ORF20 – and I get “credit” for your purchase. It’s not a lot, but it is, frankly, a little extra Skirt change for me! And a skirtier me is a happier me!!

So let’s try it out now shall we??  🙂

From now until March 16, all of the 261 Fearless Collection is on sale! Click below, and go have a look!!

I hope ya’ll will all join me on my new adventure!!
