30 Aug THT- Dona Jo Sportswear and Life Lately
I am sharing a company out of Pittsburgh, my hometown, called Dona Jo. They are a sportswear company.
I had this collaboration agreement before I got sick with Pudendal Neuralgia, so I had to share it with you.
They are a company out of Pittsburgh, and they make activewear for women. They are certainly known for their skorts. The skorts come in many different lengths, even for tall ladies! I am wearing a 17 inch length skirt and this reminded me of a Monet water painting. I liked the design and the layered frills. I can’t wear it at the moment, as there are compression shorts underneath, and with PN, you can’t wear anything that is form fitting there. No jeans, trousers for a bit, so at home I am utizing some of these purchases I wrote about in yesterday’s POST. READ IT HERE.
Sizing wise for the pieces, I would get your normal size. They have a size chart in which you can refer to. I am wearing smalls.
They have a multitude of patterns and colors, certainly great for my sis in law, who plays tennis. Maybe you are into the new rage, “Pickleball”? Well, these would we great for that.
I received two tanks and am sharing the one here on the blog, I like the greenish color and the style. It comes with a built in bra and is stretchy so its comfy too.
I am wearing them with my new New Balance 327 sneakers. I finally got a hold of a pair, and will share them more on the blog, as I will be in sneakers and cushioned shoes for a bit, as I have pain in my legs and feet. I wrote about retro sneakers here with THIS BLOG POST.
I am not going to say it hasn’t been trying. I feel like I have been knocked down a few pegs. I was doing quite well with my EDS and this came out of the blue. I am a believer in being pro-active though, so in a matter of the 2-week diagnosis, I have a Pain Management doc, who will perform a Pudendal Nerve block on me the mid of Sept. I also have a Pelvic floor PT and have seen her for an evaluation and will have steady 2 day/week appts starting after Labor Day. The pain is still very high, and not managed, so I have messaged the pain doc and may have to see about either giving Gabapentin more time at the high dose, or trying Lyrica or another med. All of this takes so much time. I am doing all I can for this, and just wish I didn’t have to wait 2 weeks for treatments! darn holiday! I spend the day with an ice pack – and my Gibson who doesn’t leave my side.
I was able to post this week, but it may be intermittant depending on how I feel. I am also on IG and the same for there.

I love Dona Jo! Their skirts are my favorite – light, feminine and easy for workouts!

The colors of that skirt are amazing and I love the different shoulders of the tank.
Sending love and hugs,
AlexandraPosted at 12:02h, 30 August
Such a cute outfit! Looks so comfy too. I have always liked the look of one shoulder tops, but not actually them. I like that this top sort of has that vibe, but with the extra straps. Popping over to check it out.
MichellePosted at 11:33h, 30 August
This such a cute outfit, Jess! The colors are fabulous, and I really like the way the tank is designed. A built in bra is awesome! I’m so sorry you’re still struggling so. You have been doing so well – being a lot more active than I can manage. It sounds like you are doing all you can. Drat on the holiday!

Love these colorful pieces and I love your attitude, too. It’s hard to remain positive when you’re dealing with debilitating pain, but you manage to remain happy and hopeful and handle it like a true pro. Feel better, Jess. Checking out these pieces today!
PamelaPosted at 06:23h, 30 August
Dear Jess – you’re looking gorgeous here and with good luck you’ll be returning to better health very soon.
LauriePosted at 06:11h, 30 August
Oh Jess. This is sad to hear. I often admire how you cope with your EDS and to get another blow is awful. Dee lives on Gabapentin! I hope things get sorted out for you swiftly. Can I just say, how no-one would know how much you suffer in these photos You look like a very healthy athlete xx

That skort is adorable. I hope you feel better and get some relief soon!
MaryPosted at 05:28h, 30 August
Oh dear, it sadly sounds as thouhh go you’re in this for true long haul but the nerve block and pain management appointments you have lined up should lighten your load, poor Jess. As you say , keep positive.
Kellyann RohrPosted at 04:34h, 30 August
Oh Jess, I am so sorry you are still having so much pain and that it cannot be managed. It’s hard to believe they cannot get this under control and that you have been suffering for so long. I hope that once the appointments start regularly that you get some relief but it is long overdue, bless your heart.
I cannot even imagine blogging when you feel so badly, take a break and take care of yourself sweet friend, I am praying for you!
KatiePosted at 03:03h, 30 August
Love the gorgeous skirt! It also reminds me of a Monet and I adore the colors! Thanks for the link up and I hope things get better with the pain.
NancyPosted at 02:27h, 30 August
I keep my fingers crossed for you that you get help soon for your pain. And that this will pass real quick. It’s a very elegant tank!
