Arm Warmers?

I never really thought about arm warmers.  I figured I would just weal long sleeves.  Now that spring is coming and the weather is even wackier than normal, I am finding the long sleeve thing just isn't working.  I get too hot in one.  Yet my elbows and lower arms are cold.  With the pricing of arm warmers, I decided to tough it out.  Man, those things are spendy and I just blew my running budget on a new sport's bra.  (Trust me, the sport's bra is definitely the spendign priotity!)  Then I remembered Small Town Runner's idea.  Socks.  I had a great pair of sparkly striped toe socks with holes in the toes.  Not anymore!  Now I have awesome sparkly striped arm warmers.  And they work great!  This morning I threw on a short sleeve shirt with the "arm warmers" and gloves.  Perfection!  Everything stayed in place.  My arms stayed warm and my core stayed cool.  Gotta love a good runner tip!

There!  Finally got the picture to attach!

I like your colorful new armers! I made my own out of tights - thinner, but it doesn't get real cold here in Houston.

Love your armwarmers! Ha! I posted a video around Christmas time with my baby legs arm warmers that looked just like that. I love wearing my baby legs (for my kids) on my arms! :) I have running arm warmers now but the baby legs do just as good. YOu look great with them! :)
