Ready for the "Roga Revolution"?

If you haven't heard of Oiselle yet you're missing out on something amazing.  Oiselle is a running apparel company based in Seattle and run by real WOMEN.  Not just any women -- but runners like you and me.  Their clothing is fashion forward and functional.  I immediately fell in love with their line because it is the perfect blend of feminine and athletic.  It is exactly what is missing in women's running apparel.  Ladies, they answered our prayers.

Sarah, from Oiselle, sent me a pair of roga shorts.  What is roga?  Running+Yoga.  Get familiar with the term because a revolution is comin'!  These shorts are phenomenal.  I fell in love the second I opened the box because they are the cutest shorts I've ever owned.  When I put them on they felt light and fit perfectly.

straight from the shipping box to my body...

before heading off for a tennis match...

don't mind my super awkward poses

thick waistband-- figure flattering & it sits flat on your hips

I played tennis in these shorts and I ran an 18 miler on the treadmill.  I loved them!  I didn't experience any chafing and they managed my butt sweat really well.  Am I the only one with serious butt sweat, by the way?  I sweat more from my butt than my head.  Anyway, these cute little shorts proved themselves to me this weekend.  They wick moisture and stayed put for an entire tennis match and an 18 miler, all in one weekend (Yes, I washed them).  I give them my stamp of approval -- or more like stamp of obsession.  

You can find them on along with an endless number of cute running tees, tanks, shorts and outerwear.  Be prepared to want everything.  I already have wish list for Christmas.  

And these are a few of my favorite things...

burn fat, not fuel.  :)

I'll take the t-shirt and those arms, thankyouverymuch.

 get this!  a wedding dress made for running!  
that's what I'm talkin' about! 

Thank you to the lovely ladies at Oiselle!  I might just sleep in my new shorts tonight.


  1. Love the look of those shorts! I will try them!

    Man, I needed that wedding outfit about 12 years ago whan my hubby and I got married on the finish line of the Tram Road race! I did make an outfit, white satin running shorts, lace running bra and shirt, veil, and, of course, garter, but the running dress would have been perfect! I guess I was ahead of the times.

  2. Dude... your "awkward poses" are rather sex-kittenish :P Just sayin'...

  3. Man, I'd love to try some of their stuff...send them my way to review! :) ha! But really, the best thinga bout this post was seeing you model them! Anything would look good on wonder they asked you to try their stuff and review them. You could try on a paper bag and make it look hot!

  4. kate, you are HOT! i've managed to stifle my laughter at your comment on butt sweat (because i so know what you're talking about) to say just how cute these shorts are. we carry oiselle at my store and i'm definitely a fan. we recently got this shirt ( and i'm obsessed! you can't see it on the website but the bottom bar continues onto the back and says ultra : )

  5. DANG!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THOSE SHORTS ON YOU!!! Ha, that girl does have great arms. I LOVE the idea of running + yoga! Way cute stuff, thanks for sharing with us!

  6. Love the yoga shorts idea. My pant-legs get in the way during tree pose!

    And oh... I wish I had seen that running dress six months ago! Hubby and I ran a 10k together the day before our wedding. We wore white + blue (wedding colors) but the dress would have been perfect! :)

  7. They've got a "Born and raced in Michigan (or other state)" shirt that I've been eyeing for a while.
