Thumbholes for the Win! [Albion Fit Giveaway]

by Sarah on April 23, 2013 · 78 comments

Aside from the whole “being a girl” thing, and the inborn American desire for acquisition, I really cannot explain why I have so many darn clothes.

Between running and yoga–and the fact that I’m a fashion victimI rarely feel the need to wear anything but workout clothes.

I sometimes shower and then just put the same outfit back a clean version on.

When I was given the opportunity to review the Go Long Crew from Albion Fit, I was excited first because it looked so soft and comfy.

Second, because I have been cursed blessed with a superlong torso and the shirts were superlong also.

Third, because I’m becoming something of an amateur yogi, and yoga-inspired clothes make me feel really hip(pie) and awesome.

this is my "i'm awesome" face

And, most importantly, the shirt has thumbholes.*

*Can be one or two words. I looked it up.

Let’s just say, that although I got this rust-colored one for free, I’m tempted to purchase another in every color available.

It met all of my previously aforementioned expectations.

Not only is it comfortable, breathable, and oh-so-cute, it’s perfect for everything from weekly Whole Foods kombucha dates–

–where I realize I made it decidedly lesscute and more patriotically nerdy by throwing on blue Crocs–

this is the one-size-up from the shirt in the first pictures. they accidentally sent me the wrong size at first!

–to acting as a yoga class cover-up.

(Where I learned in doesn’t wrinkle after refusing to get it sweaty…I love it that much.)

don't worry, i had a shirt on underneath

The great news for all of y’all, is that YOU can have one, too.

Albion Fit is going to let one of you have the chance to win your own Go Long Crew in the color of your choice! Simply follow the Rafflecopter rules, and I’ll pick a winner this weekend!

Now if only Albion Fit could solved my post-yoga hair problem as well as they’ve solved the issue of what to wear.

I actually am scared to count how many work-out articles of clothing I have. It would be alarming. I should challenge myself and try to wear every top & not just my favorites…

I love that thumb hole shirt too! I am not so blessed with a torso like yours but I adore a long long shirt so I can be lazy and wear leggings instead of pants!

Thumb holes! :) I know it seems like every blogger and their mother is obsessed with thumb holes, but I must confess my never-ending love for them as well. It all started with hand-me-downs in elementary school which incidentally did not start off with thumb holes, but whose sleeves soon had their very own make shift/DIY version :)
