My Workout Wears Me Out!

I am so toast after my surf contest yesterday.  I'm usually sore but this one really took it out of me.  I had to surf a board that wasn't mine in really small waves.  This means I'm basically paddling for my life.  To top it off, I was in a heat with all guys, half of which were teens.  Yeah, this old lady had a hard time keeping up but gave it her all!

The more competitions I enter, the better I get.  I think I'm going to work with a coach a bit to try to improve.  Back in the day I was so much better.  Age and injuries are taking their toll and I need some help.  No excuses, it just happens.

Thanks to ZJ Boarding House for the fun event yesterday!

Tommy Hilfiger Golf - Preppy with a Twist (Review)

I was sent a couple of Tommy Hilfiger collection samples for review and here is my opinion:

First off - BRAVO!  I am so excited that these shirts are long enough!  I am so tired of women's golf shirts that are super short and show off your midriff when you swing.  Seriously, I am not playing golf to show off my stomach.  I want to be comfortable and have clothes on that cover me, are comfortable, and wear well.  This line does that!  The collection features an assortment of fits accommodating the freedom of movement required in the back swing and longer polo lengths stay firmly tucked during play.

For the Tommy Hilfiger golf collection, the design philosophy of bringing a fresh perspective to Classic American Cool styling was adhered to and the result is a collection true to the Tommy Hilfiger heritage and true to golf. Making this brand appeal to the golf consumer meant designing a line that truly displays golf sportswear that can be worn on and off the golf course.

As golf has evolved over the centuries, so has the apparel worn for golf. Traditionally a cotton driven category, golf wear has followed suit with the emergence of the vast variety of technical apparel that now has a strong place in the golf market. To be a true player in this category, an approach of bringing technical fabrics to this collection was imperative. The end result is an offering that features strong Classics essential for any golf wardrobe and an assortment of Fashion Collections that truly deliver “Preppy with a Twist” to the fairways and greens.

The shirts look good on me and the cut of the sleeveless doesn't make my surfer shoulders look like a linebacker.  To sum in up in 3 words: flattering, comfortable performance.  I think you all know I'm definitely NOT a preppy but these styles still look good on me!  Don't listen to Will Ferrel in the video above, be fashionable and wear Tommy!
