With the weather warming up, I’ve been reaching for this sports dress more and more. It’s so easy to wear with a lightweight button down and sneakers.
And how about that lilac ball cap? It’s no secret that I love a good ball cap, but that gorgeous lilac shade is a fun deviation from my typical neutral palette. Soft purples have really started to steal my heart. I feel happy in it — it gives me a little boost and feels playful and inviting.
Let’s talk about this dress. I’d been looking for a good sports dress and had heard positive things about the Outdoor Voices dress. However, for me, the fit was off and the fabric wasn’t as soft as I’d hoped.
So I was elated when I found this one by Beyond Yoga. First — I love the minimalist cross back straps. A nice little detail. Second — the fabric. Oh, it’s SOFT. Like, baby lamb soft.
However, something to note: this dress does come with built in shorts.
Which I thought I wanted.
But it turns out, that makes it way hard to use the bathroom, since you have to take the whole thing off. Not ideal. Plus, the compression in the sports bra and built in shorts makes it difficult to get on and off in the first place.
So…I decided to cut the shorts out of mine. And it worked just great! I cut it right underneath the sports bra line and haven’t had any problems. Not even any fraying in the wash. Now I just wear it with regular bike shorts underneath. And all is well.
