Game, Set, Match

Let me say, it has been years since I last picked up a racquet. I used to play for fun when I was younger, but never quite got the hang of it. Being a golfer, I kind of miss the athleticism aspect of a sport, i.e the sweating and muscle aches. We Georgians can play tennis outdoors basically all year round, thanks to our mild weather. With the weather warming up and having some free time, I decided to head out to the courts.

One thing I love is tennis whites. While there is no real purpose to them other than tradition, I still like the idea of having a dress code specifically for a sport. I am all about keeping traditions alive. Attending Wimbledon is on my 101 in 1001 days list. Hopefully it will happen someday, but now I have more of an appreciation for the sport. It's not as easy as it looks! 

My all-time favorite brand for tennis clothes is Lacoste. It's actually one of my all-time favorite brands, period. They have such classic staples such as headbands, tennis sweaters, and polos. Every Lacoste item I own has held up over the years. I play golf, but I get most of my golf attire (especially shorts/skirts) from the tennis section. This Fila pleated skirt is definitely my most worn. I have it in 3 different colors! I also love this one and this one.  I even wear it sometimes as an everyday skirt with sandals and a simple top. While I just wore my Nike running shoes, I think I need to invest in a pair of actual tennis shoes (to improve my game, of course). These are by far my favorite. I love a good white shoe, and these are classic Lacoste. Golf and tennis clothes, especially for women, are extremely similar. On the course, you must wear a collar. On the court, you don't have to. I find that tennis clothes fit better (and look better) than golf clothes, for sure! 

Have a great day!
