Yo dawg, I heard you like vacation so how about you take a vacation when you get back from your vacation so that you can rest up and take a vacation from your vacation.
Because if Seawheeze & Bryce weren’t enough, let’s flip from blue to red back to blue scenery again and spend a weekend up at my uncle’s place up on Cape Cod. 5-day work week? What’s that? September is going to be quite the rude awakening.
Also, it took finding the option at a cute little bakery on the Cape (hi Woolfie’s!) to offer it as an extra $1 option on their coffee menu, but I finally experienced and was motivated to make my own damn coffee ice cubes this week. Game changer.
The large button on the keurig makes one full tray of cubes. Just sayin’.
HEADS UP: I’m playing in a golf tournament on Thursday. WMTM Alert is not gonna happen. Will be too busy chasing a tiny ball into and out of the woods with a metal stick.
5 Faves & a Dud – 8/30/16 Upload
Favorite #1: Namastay Put Hipster ($18) in mini antique paisley white black
PAISLEY UNDERPANTS. I should just drop the curtain and stop right here because these are the best of this week’s lot. Told myself I was going on a post-SW lulu hiatus, but for $18 I’ll buy myself 2 less cocktails this month and happily dance in the mirror in solitude at home in these. Because paisley underpants.
Favorite #2: Baller Hat Softshell ($38) in black/dark carbon/black
Argh, this is just so REASONABLE of a purchase. Textured dark gray makes me happy. Dammit, lululemon! You’re making it really tough to keep things under control. Seriously, look at the look on the model’s face. She’s mocking me. She KNOWS I’m not going to be able to hold it together and I’m going to buy this hat.
Favorite #3: Swiftly Tech LS Crew ($78) in black/sapphire blue
Did they forget the Ohio warehouse even existed? So many recycled color schemes. Here we have ANOTHER redux from last winter, but I’m going to allow it. Why? Because this was one of my top 3 purchases all last season, and I’d always wear it the minute the laundry was finished.
Here’s my taking a bunch of dumb selfies in said shirt on a particularly bored afternoon in a random hotel room on a random business trip. Every time that bachelor lens comes around… I just can’t help myself. Sometimes I read books about neuropsychology. Sometimes I take photos of myself with fake mascara running down my face. It’s what I call balance.
Favorite #4: Outrun Tight ($118) in black
A fan of the new Outrun 17″ Crop, I have no reason to believe that the tights won’t kick ass too. While some may not like the extra layers forming the double side pocket for the summer heat, these will be a great addition to a fall runner’s wardrobe.
With a similar mesh lower-leg look to the Inspire Tight, I wonder if that means the Inspires are following their cropped brethren to the retirement home.
Plus, the ruching in the rear. Flattering!
Favorite #5: Love Tee Short Sleeve Crew ($58) in heathered emperor blue
I want to pair this with fun gold jewelry and wear it to work. Every week. Exercising self control and not buying it, so I’ll sit here and advise you to pair this with fun gold jewelry and wear it to work.
The Dud: My attention span.
Hey look, there’s nothing terribly horribly no good very bad and jumping out at me this week. I already learned last year that (half and) marathoners actually find arm warmers useful, so I can’t knock ’em until I try them. I gots nothing.
The US Open is on TV. I think I’ll go watch that now.
As a matter of fact, I think I’ll go watch that in person tomorrow. I should call my Dad and figure that whole ‘plan’ thing out.
Go make yourself some coffee ice cubes while the weather is stupid hot out, we’ll all be cozying up in scarves before we know it. 🙂
Hat, underwear. Haven’t purchased yet but am strongly considering them both. What about everyone else?
