I look forward to playing tennis every spring and (thanks to a mild winter in Austin) I’ve already been on the courts this year. Last week I had my first lesson since high school! It was actually a lot of fun and got me excited about getting back in shape. Of course now I think I need a new racquet and clothes, especially this skirt. While my tennis pro wants me to focus on following through and pointing my left toe forward, I still know that one of the main points of the game is looking good in your outfit. In fact, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that my favorite sport is one that incorporates a heavy dose of individual style. I prefer the traditional all-white look, though I don’t think any place requires it anymore! When I’m on the courts I feel preppy, sporty, and very alive. I can’t wait to get back out there again this week. Now, what to wear…
