So I’m not sure if this is good or bad news for you this evening, oh faithful blog reader. I’m easily 3 sheets to the wind right now. Very professional much wow just kidding, but truth. Business dinners mean sometimes you’re buzzed on a Tuesday and admitting it to the internet when you should probably just shush about it. I ran 5 miles at lunch and got double veg/no starch with my entree, so… it all balances out. #LIBRA
5 Faves & a Dud: 6/11/19 Edition
Favorite #1: Lululemon Ignite Bra ($68)
When I saw a typical high-neck bra on the What’s New page, I’m not gonna lie, I clicked on it with bated breath. Would it be another criss cross mish mash of string? I expected as much, and was pleasantly proven wrong.
This bra reminds me of an Invigorate Bra, but with a flattering keyhole. Looks supportive, and I’m looking forward to hunting it down in store. Also available in black and cherry cola. Would much rather wear this than drink an actual cherry cola.
Favorite #2: Athleta A-C Hyper Focused Longline Bra ($54) in prism pink
Look at me keeping the long line bra train moving on down along the track. I’m in the mood for a little bubblegum pink.
Blame the fact that just a few days ago, on a Friday night in Chicago, the world was my oyster yet I opted to stay in my hotel room and forgo dinner so that I wouldn’t miss a single moment of Legally Blonde or Legally Blonde II, both of which I’ve seen multiple times before.
Hey Katy, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Favorite #3: Arizona Sandal by Birkenstock ($100) in Icy Violet Metallic
This should be an instagram poll, probably, but I’m going to ask the question here. Are Birkenstocks back? In my increasingly elder age of 33 1/2 years, I have a growing appreciation for sensible footwear.
However, I am still young at heart and think blue/purple shiny objects are awesome unicorn things, so… yeah. I had some crazy bright teal Birks when I was a tweenager. Is she coming back?
Favorite #4: All the FUNFETTI-looking APLs that came into my inbox today
This afternoon, I was just chillin’ minding my business pricing out plane tickets for the Disney Wine & Dine 10K+Half Marathon weekend when this email came through. I quickly lost. my. MIND.
Immediately screenshotted and sent off to my fellow APL-loving friend Paula in all caps going “LIME GREEEEEENNNNNN”. Bright colors are 100% my jam, and when I clicked through to see the soles are all multi-colored speckles… the only question I’m asking myself is which color of funfetti kicks will make me cave?
Favorite #5: Lululemon In Movement Tight ($98) in Bermuda Teal
So I haven’t seen it in person (yet), but I am inclined to say that Bermuda Teal is probably a shade or two brighter than Alberta Lake. They’re beautiful. Need I say more?
The full gamut of Bermuda Teal offerings now includes…
- Tightest Stuff Tight ($148)
- Speed Up Tight 25″ ($108)
- All the Right Places Pant II ($128)
- Energy Bra ($52)
- Speed Up Crop ($88)
- In Movement Tight 28″ ($98)
- Fine Form Bra ($78)
- Free to Be Moved Bra ($68)
The Dud: Lululemon Monday Best Romper ($118) in Moonwalk
I’ll admit. There’s a bit of flattering action happening in the front, but the back is what kills the look for me. Frump city.
The front is feminine, drapey, and makes me think of how a super chill ballerina would hang out on her day off. Then, you turn around. The shorts go up a bit high in back, they’re an oddly long length. I envision this romper making me look wider than a house from the rear view. If I see it, I’ll try it. My fingers will be crossed that I’m wrong. I’m not so confident that I will be wrong.
Rant Rave Ramble
- New print on the block. Illusion Tidal Teal Bermuda Teal/Bermuda Teal, now say it 10x fast.
- The shoulder plus two backpack straps on the Easy Days Backpack intrigues me.
- Another source of curiosity: the Cinch and Stretch Short. Are they running shorts? Are they yoga shorts? ARE THEY BOTH?!
- So this solar chrome thing. If you get the fancy special Swiftly Speed Short Sleeve Solar Chrome or the Swiftly Speed Racerback Solar Chrome, it’s supposed to change color in the sun. To what color, though? Online stock photos aren’t giving us much insight.
- The light coral On the Beat Belt Bag and the pink shell Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Crew give me happy vibes.
- Trying to decide if the Elixir Sculpt Tank II is pastel or neon. Thoughts?
Of course I see a few things I like, but I am not going to make any wine-fueled purchases right this very second. Did my shopping cart get a few new additions this evening? Yes.
Will I follow through and purchase in the morning? TBD.
What about you?
