Here in Houston it's rodeo time and, at my son's school, that means its square dancing time. So, before my match, I went to my baby's school to get my dosey-doh on. I got one of the other moms to take a pic of us and if you're wondering why we're standing so far apart, as if we're being chaperoned at a cotillion, it is because, as my son informed me, "Mom, you can't stand so close or we can't dance right." Who am I to question the 5th Grader with knowledge of square dance position and etiquette? I backed off because, of course, I want to dance right. And if you're thinking, "Hey, that kid has kind of a Justin Bieber hair thing going on," you're right. We know. We're hoping our son will get past this soon.
As you can see, I have on my 4all by jofit tennis outfit: the Striped Inset Tank in white with navy accents, the navy Side Pocket Knit Skort, and - my favorite piece - the white Thumbs Up Jacket. And, as I totally expected, the piece that got the most questions and compliments was the Thumbs Up Jacket. I'm just telling you - this is something that makes every outfit I put on look just a little bit more put together, or finished off, or something. It is so much more hip than my usual Old Navy hoodie look.
After square dancing my heart out, I played my match (lost that one - urrggg!) and naturally forgot to get anyone to take my photo while I was playing in my 4all outfit. But I can tell you - I was very comfortable in it, there was no tugging on the skirt or yanking the top back down after serving. And that's really what I'm looking for in my tennis wear - something I can play in without fighting against. I have enough problems out there without also worrying if I'm revealing too much skin on the court.
Conclusion - love my 4all outfit! And I can't wait to see what comes next.
