The Running List: Warm-Weather Running Clothes

Welcome back! My how things have changed since the last time I was here – the flowers are blooming, the days are longer and the temperatures are on a steady incline. This can only mean one thing: spring has officially sprung! Being a native resident to Las Vegas, we have the pleasure of enjoying about two months of this glorious time before temperatures reach the “don’t come out of your house our you will melt” zone. Knowing my days are numbered, I try to take advantage of these temperatures as much as I can. I insist on driving with my windows down, eating breakfast, lunch and dinner on my back patio, and, of course, running outdoors as much as possible.

It is no coincidence that this will be the third San Diego Marathon that I have trained for – no, not because I am huge fan of running on freeways and large hills, but because the race is typically either the last week of May or first week of June. This means that peak training just happens to coincide with the optimal Las Vegas weather! For some reason, waking up to the sounds of birds chirping and the sun shining makes it exponentially easier to roll out of bed, put on my clothes, and hit the road.

It also helps that I now only have to put on four articles of clothing rather than the 74 layers I was putting on in the dead of winter (this may be a slight exaggeration; however when you factor in gloves and head warmers, things get crazy).

Three, yes, just three articles of clothing: running shorts, a sports bra, and a running top. As I have previously mentioned, I am slightly neurotic when it comes to planning out what I am going to wear when I run. I like to have everything ready in the morning so I can literally roll out of bed, hopefully not hit my head on the nightstand (though it has happened more than once), put on my clothes, and head out the door.

Truthfully, I am usually not fully awake until two or three miles into my run, just the right amount of time and distance so that I can’t second guess my decision and crawl back in bed. With that, laying out my running wardrobe in the spring is quite shocking the first few times I do it, mostly because I feel like I am missing 71 articles of clothing. However, now that I am accustomed to only having the essential three, I am more inclined to pick pieces that work well with each other. 

Gone are the days of layering, covering, and hiding any semblance of a cute running outfit. Now is my time to shine and since I only need three, yes, just three articles of clothing to run in, you better believe that they are going to be the cutest, hottest, and most functional outfits of all my running apparel. With that, I bring you my spring-summer apparel running list:

Dress Up: 12 Spring Dresses To Love

Every April since 1839, the Friday before the Crabbies Grand National at the Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool, England becomes the fabulous celebration of style known as the Aintree Ladies Day.  This early spring day is dedicated to three things: horseracing, fashion, and fun --much like our own Kentucky Derby in May, but much more fun and carefree than the more formal races at Ascot. 

Ladies from Liverpool and beyond flock to the races in amazing dresses and hats to watch the races and compete in the Aintree Ladies Day Style Contest that nets the winner a new car and a few thousand pounds in prize money. 

What's not to love about an excuse to get dressed up and feel feminine and fancy?  Spring’s cheerful palettes and soft fabrics combine with great lines and on-point trends in this collection of plus size dresses inspired by the well-dressed ladies of Aintree. 

Bright, tropical colors, modern florals and crisp whites were the themes of the day. Even the gentlemen dressed to match in bright, bold and whimsical prints. Hemlines ran the gamut, but the number one accessory was a great smile as women celebrated a day out with friends. 

There are only 16 days left until the Kentucky Derby! I hope the gorgeous dresses below inspire you to gather some good friends, maybe even a mint julep, for our own American celebration of style and horseracing with great dresses and of course, fabulous hats!
