I was trailing about two feet behind her as we traipsed across the grass heading for yet another soccer game. It was hot, the type of heat that sits – thick and heavy, the sun blinding in its brilliance. And I loved everything about it. This is MY kind of weather. I live for the warmth of Spring and Summer.
And then I saw it – her wheels turning as she looked around and then shook her head in disbelief. My nine year old daughter burst out with her fashion assessment, “Who in the WORLD wears a skirt or a dress to A SOCCER GAME?”
I glanced down and slowly, I raised my hand, “Hey Punky, yoo-hoo…. that would be me.”
I have a habit of dressing for both comfort AND fashion. More often than not, you will find me in a skirt or a dress at all of my kid’s games – soccer, baseball, softball, basketball. I LIKE skirts and dresses. They make me feel fresh and happy. My small girl, on the other hand, prefers basketball shorts, high socks and tennis shoes.
As you can imagine, she was appropriately dismayed to realize her MOTHER was of the offending-skirt-dress-wearing-to-a-sporting-event type.
Do I run the risk of a wind gust blowing my dress up? Or my skirt sliding as I sit in the stands? Sure. But I have that covered. How, you ask? Jockey’s Skimmies ®.
Here’s what I love about Skimmies®
They are designed for comfort – meaning, I am comfortable in whatever I wear – no worries about twirling, dancing or sitting in my role as a professional fan at my kids games.
They are soft – they feel like a slip, but cover me as though I’m wearing shorts.
They can be worn to ‘skim’ over any problem areas and make pants, tighter dresses or skirts fit beautifully.
They come in different colors to easily match (or hide) underneath whatever you choose to wear.
Have you tried them? You should.
For the next few weeks, on Jockey’s Fackebook page – they are challenging women like you and me to ‘Seize the day’.… knowing that we often have only one or two outfits we always grab (they are easy, comfortable-ish, but signal being stuck in a rut), knowing that we sometimes worry about how a dress, pants or skirt ‘fits’ us, and knowing that we often pick comfort over fashion – the idea is to step outside that comfort zone and wear what makes you feel FABULOUS.
Since I DO worry about my dresses and skirts clinging AND I know that modesty is often a need, especially when playing and jumping with my kids – or, as I mentioned, heading to their games….this challenge above is the one I embraced. Note: my jump for joy without fear of exposing anything you don’t need to see.
When you enter the Seize the Day daily challenge, you are entered to win $5000 towards the adventure of a lifetime, a style consultation with Rachel Zoe, or a $1000 shopping spree (among other amazing prizes).
Additionally, because I love you (and I’m loving these Jockey Skimmies®) I would love for you to have the chance to win a pair of your own. From now until June 9th, enter to win a pair of Jockey Skimmies®. From this giveaway 240 winners will be chosen. Comment below telling me what fashion or comfort challenge you believe the Skimmies® would solve for you.
If only I could show you my daughter’s face when she realized that I was, in fact, well within my fashion and comfort rights to wear a dress to her games. Priceless.
Good luck entering the Seize the Day Challange and the giveway above.
