A New Favorite

Key hole cut out in back with contrasting trim
I found and fell in love with a Marika technical shirt with a key hole cut out in back and contrasting trim at Marshalls.  I searched for it online and now have it in three different colors!

It's a great summer weight, is longer than the average running shirt, and super cute.  To see what it looks like from the front, check out the photo I posted in my post about the Kenyan Run (I was wearing a purplish one).  I wore one of the other colored ones last night and tried taking an over the shoulder, in the mirror, shot of the back (which by the way is not as easy as it seems! LOL). Anyway, it's cute, right?

So other than the fact that I'm going to have some interesting tan lines from this shirt, it's perfect!  It's super cute with a skirt, but you'll have to trust me on that since you can't see my bottom half in this photo. Best part, I'm a bargain shopper and probably paid $55 total for all three shirts!!!  Woot!!

How about you, any new favorites lately??  Do you bargain shop like I do, or do you tend to pay full retail price for name brands?

p.s I swam again this morning.  I rock!!


  1. Hey Lisa, I like that colour and love the style.. BUT... for me this may not work - or I'd have to radically change my style of sports bras - as I'm sure all mine come down the middle of the back!.. is that too much info?! ha ha ...

    Anyway - nice "ps" snuck in there... very well done... I have not been swimming for MONTHS! ops!

  2. Woo hoo! I love new running clothes, ESPECIALLY when they're a bargain!!! Marshalls has some really cute stuff. I've bought a few things there recently too. I bet you run faster in your cute clothes too. :)

  3. Cute top! I love it...glad you were able to
    Find more in the same style! :0)

  4. Absolutely love that shirt!

    I never think to look in places like Marshall's. I'll definitely have to keep it in mind.

  5. I had some Marika stuff eons ago that I loved. Did not know that brand was still around. I'll have to look for it.

  6. you do rock, and in that awesome shirt you look like a rock star!

  7. I like it! It's just right, because it doesn't seem to show any bra straps.

    I never pay full retail price. That's too expensive…
