Am I too Halloween??

Having trouble with BLURRY photos today...

Through a Health and Wellness program at work Muscle Man and I had $100 free money to spend at Sports Authority.. So of course I bought Running Clothes...I opted to buy my first pair of Nike Tempo shorts.. I was hoping for my signature Green color, but it was nowhere to be found so I settled on the outfit below... Tempo shorts with matching BRIGHT Orange T-shirt...both on SALE.. (Sorry bad cell phone picture)

Now I am on the fence.. What do you think, is it too Halloween? I am debating on whether I should return and swap out for pink or blue.

What do you think??? I asked Muscle Man and he liked the outfit, but I am a little torn.. Opinions wanted and valued :)

well it def looks pink.. it is pink, right? i don't think it looks too halloweeny i think it is nice looking. SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH it up!

Croughwell said...

It's orange, right? I have a pair of grey nike shorts with the orange trim and I wear a bright orange running tank. I also have bright pink, green, and yellow too.

Tri Mommy said...

I rather like it... and I think the Orange is more a salmon color which is almost 1/2 way to pink. I say keep it!

Caitlin said...

The orange is so cheerful! I vote for keeping it, too - it'll bring some sunshine to a gray day run.

Genesis said...

i think the colors look great. it actually looks more pinkish than bright orange. i would wear that.

that's a cool program your work has for you.

Robin said...

You're talking to a gal who has LOTS of salmon-colored tops/bottoms... I say keep them. They look great, match well, of course, and really don't look orange to me. :) btw - bought the same shorts last wknd at SA: blk/wht, love them! Went back for the gray/orange ones that Croughwell mentions, but they weren't on sale any longer. Bummer. Keep them, Keep them!

Okay now you're speaking my language!! Love the Nike Tempo shorts, have about 8 pair now and it's about all I run in!! I think they look like they are a melon color, maybe papaya?? I also think they are fabulous!! Keep them so that you have some variety! You know I sooooo love the NIke signature green, but it's fun to mix it up and Halloween IS right around the corner......go for it!!! If muscle man thinks you look hot, isn't that what's important?? (lol)!!!

Marlene said...

ooh, I keep hearing about these tempo shorts. Can't wait to hear how you like them.

It looks peach in the photo, but if it's actually pumpkin orange, I'd be inclined to try a different color. Then again, I'm sure Tall Mom can pull it off and look AMAZING!

Morgan said...

I dig and I'm not an orange fan... I think it's because it's not SHOCKING Orange... :)

Mel said...

I saw the bright orange Nike shirt at Sports Authority just the other day! I love it! I've been thinking about wearing it for my first marathon next month.

Britt said...

No way! I love it! And, you can't go wrong w/ Nike Tempo shorts. Love them! I think it's a great outfit!

Janice {Run Far} said...

well, I love orange, so I love the outfit. I have a bright orange top I wore in marathon. It helped the hubby spot me.

Jen said...

Cute! Keep it!

HEATHER said...

1) LOVE them, keep it!

2) where were those shorts last weekend when I was looking for them, LOL! I could only find the orange with black stripes, haha!

What an awesome perk from the job!

Kelly said...

Personally pink is my favorite color, BUT with that said I still like the orange, it's different and fun, and no one will think it is too Halloween until you wear it a lot in late october haha.

OOPS! I was reading my comment as I hit publish and there was a bad word! Sorry! I meant to spell out shiRt and forgot the R. Jeeze! Anyway, what I was trying tos ay is that it is not too much orange! I like it! They are so typical of the Nike Tempo shorts! And you can pair the shirt with spandex tights and then a black or white t-shirt with the shorts! That is the amazing thing about the tempo shorts!!! Mix and match!!!! LOVE THEM!! it only seems halloweenie because it is starting to feel like fall and halloween is in the air!

lara said...

I love it! It doesn't look to Orange but more pink! Looks cute!

MCM Mama said...

I'm not a fan of orange on ME, but if I saw another runner go by in bright orange, I wouldn't think anything of it. I'm sure it looks great on you.

Carlee said...

orange is my favorite color; i say keep them!!!! (and I'm jealous!)

EricaH said...

i think its a super cute outfit. :) I say keep it.

Kerrie said...

Well, the colors look good on you, but honestly, it's a little Oregon State Beavers. And, since I'm a Washington State Cougar, I'd exchange it for crimson and gray. I hope you got more than a shirt and shorts that were on sale for $100, by the way! Because, dang, that's pricey!

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

I love it. If you decide not to keep it, send it to me. Hahahahahah!!

Shannon said...

I hope you LOVE your tempo shorts - they're my favorite shorts to run in!

I love the outfit! Keep it!

Fair Weather Runner said...

Ashley said...

IzzyBubbles said...

Trick or treat! Ha ha. Actually, I like the orange/black combo, I just can't wear orange because it looks awful on me. I say go with it! It is almost halloween time anyway. :)

aron said...

Alisa said...

No way! I love the shorts and top. I'm all about the bright running clothes. Nike Tempo Track Shorts are my FAVE!!!!!!!

Candice @ I Have Run said...
