Swirlgear Capped Sleeve Shirt

It's been a while since I've worn a fun, pink running shirt.  In fact, I don't really have any pink running clothes at all.  I think it's usually more practical for me to wear whatever I get from races, and I like my shorts dark.

The exception.

It's not that I have anything against pink inherently -- I think it's just an issue with my skin tone clashing with it.  Also, pink items *tend* to be a little bit see-through, if you catch my drift -- but that's the point... don't want anyone to catch any of my drifts, ha ha.

I recently got to try Swirlgear's Capped Sleeve Shirt, which I found super cute!

I've probably mentioned before that I am pretty self-conscious about my arms because my shoulders slope down and results in my arms being too close to my body, which results in major "flab-amplification."  (I also tend to store fat in them, so double-whammy.) I can't believe I'm admitting this on here, but it's a known fact for me and I'm getting old enough to not care anymore.  So I tend to stay away from "cap-sleeves" because they tend to draw attention to my arms.

However, this shirt didn't really make me feel self-conscious because it seems to cover my upper arms sufficiently.  And it wasn't see-through.  And I thought it actually looked cute on me, or I'm just not used to seeing myself in pink.  Either way, I had an extra spring in my step because for once I wasn't wearing something masculine or frumpy.

Sorry for the long face... it was dead early in the AM.

It has been TERRIBLY humid lately, so I was impressed that the shirt did keep the sweat off my body.  Overall, a very flattering shirt!


In other news... 

I just finished with jury duty and escaped being on a 10-12 day trial, which is great because even in the two days I was out of the office, the workload piled high.  I got out particularly early yesterday and was able to basically enjoy a day "off"!  What did I do?  Stuff myself with sandwiches and Oreos, take a soak bath in my new house, and watch Magic Mike (I'm behind on stuff, so yeah... my review: meh).  Although things are crazy again with holidays (L'shanah tova!), birthdays, and everything else, I'm glad I had a brief chance to rest.

Here are some random photos as of late:

Goat and pimento chips.  Kind of stinky! (World Market)

I nearly cried when I paid my credit card bill for a dog + cat vet appointment, but it's all worth it.

I whine about the trains a lot, and this guy clipping his nails on it is partly why.  He also had all these "Money over b@^ches" tattoos...
