My Favorite Season Celebration with a Skirt Sports Giveaway!



Finally - it is officially AUTUMN!! Granted, like it says on my Instagram post from this morning, we still feel like summer - but the PROMISE of Fall weather is lingering in the air just around the corner from here. This season never fails to get me excited! The football, the smells of candles and fireplaces, crisp mornings, sweaters, scarves, baking...oh it's just more than my little heart can contain!!! It's bursting with joy!!



I've been in full fall mode for several weeks already since we basically had fall explode in the house for the baby shower earlier this month, and I'm loving every moment of it. I got my bake on for the shower and having a dirty apron and flour dust in my hair brought me much joy. And one of the things I love the most about Fall is the sharing that this season brings - sharing my baked goods with my co-workers and friends, sharing family memories watching football games, sharing time with friends over warm tea or coffee, sharing updates while out running in crisp cool mornings, sharing gratitude during the Thanksgiving holiday. And now I get to share in a totally new way - I get to share a favorite Skirt Sports item with one lucky winner!!!

It's an item that is perfect for the cooler Autumn mornings as it has all the fun, flirty attitude of the skirt version, but is paired with capris for a little added coverage and/or warmth! Meet the Vixen Capri Skirt!

Buzzed/Black Print
Check out those ruffles and asymmetrical hemline! And just like the Vixen Skirt, the waistband is a wide, comfortable band with continuous drawcord that works great for any shape. The capri bottoms are attached and feature lightweight wicking material that offers a "barely there" look and feel...and I can totally attest to that! They are seriously so soft and so light. They aren't compression material, so these are perfect for being active, running errands, or lounging around the house. Some of the other details taken from the Skirt Sports website:

  • Built-in mesh capri is super light-weight giving you the barely-there look and feel
  • Two pockets, one on each thigh of the capri allow you to carry your running essentials
  • Features Skirt Sports GoSoft Jersey (skirt) and Sweetest Mesh (capri leggings) with wicking properties
  • 100% polyester Under Skirt Liner in capri for extra moisture management
  • Comfortable wide waistband with continuous drawcord puts you in control, offering you choices
  • Two rows of ruffles circumference the bottom of the skirt with a slight lift on the right side
  • Sonic Music Port under skirt waistband for media headset cord
  • Skirt length (medium): 11.5 inches on right front, 13.75 inches on left front and back
Something else that you don't see in the picture on the website is this really awesome leg stitching in the same razz color featured in the skirt! Check it out...

Check out that side stitching detail! Such a nice touch!


It just shows the attention to detail and style that Skirt Sports puts into all their designs! The Vixen Capri Skirt is available in the Buzzed/Black print shown above, or in Black and in sizes XS to XXL! I know that I can also add that I love the coverage I get in the Vixen Capri Skirt - the skirt hides all the right stuff in all the right places! LOL I'm definitely going to get a lot of use out of it as the mornings cool down in the coming weeks.

  2. I like the changing colors and the new beginnings of the school year. But Fall isn't my favorite season, I think Spring is mine.

    1. Spring is my #2 but I can definitely understand the appeal of Spring being someone's fave - the new buds on the trees, the freshness after a cold winter. :-)

  4. I love our Saturday morning runs in the cooler weather and colors. The only downside is not as much daylight.
