What to wear?

I am doing a Race the Rabbit 5k this weekend and am going to wear my Tough Chik tank.  I was digging through my closet yesterday trying to figure out what to wear with it.

Help me decide!
Warning: Picture Overload!

 I picked up this great purple running skirt last fall on clearance at Target.  I wouldn't wear it for a longer run (the little shorts underneath don't stay put very well), but for a 5k it would be fine.

Here are the sock options to go with it, front and side view of the first. It is yellow, white and blue argyle.  The blue goes great but I am not so sure about the yellow.





Option 2 sock, is a brighter blue but is a fun zebra type pattern.
or maybe just like this, one of both? 
Kidding! or maybe with normal socks that would barely show above my shoes (I cheated and just pushed the socks down here)

and a closer look at the purple skirt, it really does match this shirt pretty awesome!
or there is this black and purple Bibbity skirt that I have been wanting to race in.  I wore calf sleeves here but I think I would run without, if I picked this one. You can tell I was getting tired of taking pictures of myself here, these two sadly were the best I could manage.





The skirt without the reflective stripe reflecting so you can see the colors better. I don't think the skirt matches as well, but I think this is a better skirt for longer races, the undies underneath are great!
Okay so tell me what you think!

Anyone else racing this weekend?
p.s. this little dog


is home.  My sister found him at her house yesterday.  :)

  3. I vote the first skirt sock combo! Especially since you said the skirt is better for the shorter distances. (you'll have plenty of long runs for the other :)

    Yay Cola is back! I would have freaked the eff out if CB ran off.

  5. I have that same purple Champion skirt! I like either option 1 or 2. I'm racing a 5k on Sat and I plan to wear Target's gray skirt like that with some argyle socks myself! Have a great race!

  15. First of all...you look great Christy! Okay, and I like the second skirt better because I don't typically like purple. either outfit looks great and I think you should race in whatever makes you comfortable.

    Good luck!

  23. I vote for the argyle socks! And I like the bibbity skirt! I just got one but the waist is really loose, like very loose, is yours a size medium? I'm afraid if I got a small the briefs wouldn't cover my rear.

    1. Mine is a medium, I am afraid of the small for the same reason. i wish the waist was a little tighter on the medium, thinking of putting in a drawstring to help.

  33. I am so glad that Mr. Cola is home. You must be so relieved as well as your family.

    I am thinking I might have to do a fashion show in my running clothes so people can help me decide what to wear for Eugene. It's such a BIG decision. Yikes. :-)
