Last week Laura got us geared up with running fashion tips, and this week the Wear Your Voice team actually showed up to a sporting event. Mikell wore faux-leather sweatpants because he’s a fabulous gentleman, and Ravneet was in in full ’80s gear:

We weren’t the only ones dressed up. Check out the various cuties we encountered:

Superheros at Starbucks, where we grabbed coffee before heading over to Snow Park. (Why is it called that? What is snow? This is California, people.)

Princess squad, whattup! I wish I had gotten a picture of the other greatest headgear: rainbow sweatbands with unicorn horns. But it’s hard to beat tiaras. Unless you have wings!

Fairy squad! A similar, but separate, faction of pink cuteness. There’s more:

Pink 4ever, y’all. But you know who was the absolute cutest? Us! The WYV team is adorable.
