Haha, I wear them a lot actually, I typically don't care about looking really good unless i'm going to a party or special occasion or a dinner. I normally tie up my hair in a bun or pony tail and put on sweatpants or lululemon running shorts with a cute top. Lululemon is a great sports brand by the way, really cute stuff, but its kind of pricy and more of a brand store.
By running shorts do you mean the tight booty shorts or the looser ones that have a 2-4 inch inseam? I only where the booty shorts when running long distances, and rock climbing. The looser ones for me, are for working out in general. I only wear Lululemon ones though, not the see through spandex crap at some stores.
