Running Shorts Revolution

Top Shop Running Shorts

Remember these? I do, and I really didn’t like them when they were in trendy in the 80s after Adidas sponsored the 1980 Olympics, and I’m on the fence now. It’s not the shorts fault; I have a very disturbing memory of these shorts revealing too much of an already gross male’s nuts and bolts, if you know what I mean. There is just too much room for error with that side slit.

The warm weather has brought out a new generation of running shorts, and they are not as loose, some are quite tight actually, and Top Shop is selling them in a wide variety of colors and prints with a side panel so the TMI issue is resolved.

I created StylEnigma in 2014 to celebrate the beauty of individuality and creative personal expression/presentation. I love the idea of being a canvas and expressing myself by transforming into the embodiment of my mood - to the mood I want to be in. I am fascinated by different standards of beauty and style and fashion incorporates instinctively incorporates both. I use writing as a form of continued education. I've never been into cliques or trends because I've always believed that personal style supersedes trends, I've never been a follower or stressed about being liked, and what I'm thinking usually escapes my lips before I can stop it. I love dark colors like black and midnight blue. I own so much black clothing it looks like I'm in a perpetual state of mourning - and I probably am. I love nail art. In fact, I started this blog because of a Nailasaurus nail art post, and before that, I owned a nail and skincare salon, so there will be a LOT of nail art. As a lupus patient who has been riding this global crisis solo, I have acquired a vicious plant habit and currently have approximately 95, including propagations. I frequently critique nonsense, ponder the human condition, dodge the bullets and jump over the obstacles placed before me all while learning how to make ADHD work for me because at the moment, it isn't. I am also learning how to create alternative forms of content and maintain my sanity because life frequently tests it. This will be fun. Let's do this!
