5 Faves & a Dud: 8/10/21 Edition

Hi friends! First things first, I just came from the hair salon. Never have I ever before today colored my hair. For YEARS I’ve held out from brightening it up out of pride of being a natural blonde, but, truth be told, it’s not as bright as it was when I was a kiddo. Captain Obvious whacked me over the head while I was in for a cut last week that none of my friends or family give a flying banana split whether I got highlights or not. So I did.

Now I am both feeling myself and kicking myself for being a stubborn clown. If blondes have more fun, do blonder blondes have even MORE fun? asking for a friend.


5 Faves & a Dud: 8/10/21 Edition

In lululemon news, I went on a bit of a bender last week, so I went into this week secretly hoping for a tame batch of newbies so that my trigger finger did not go F*CKING INSANE like it did last week. Thankfully, that happened. Still… some bright fun.

Favorite #1: Swift Speed High-Rise Crop 17″ ($118) in Wild Berry

My berry rumble Speed Shorts from 2014 have been one of my favorites throughout the years. I am crossing all appendages in hopes that this color shows up in more options for fall!


Favorite #2: Track That Mid-Rise Lined Short 5″ ($58) in Maldives Green

Gave these a go in store on Saturday! While I’d like the mid-rise to be a smidge higher on my 5’9″ frame, I can’t deny how comfortable they were.


Favorite #3: For the Chill of It Crop Tank ($58) in Rhino Grey

I may not love Rhino Grey as the only color options, but I am digging all other aspects of this tank. It would CRUSH in Wild Berry, so let’s all collectively manifest that, shall we?


Favorite #4: Swift Speed High-Rise Crop 21″ ($118) in Aquila Black Multi

I’ve admittedly held off on these crops because they’re Luxtreme and I’m addicted to Nulux, but this not as basic black is giving me a reason to give them a go.


Favorite #5: Energy Bra Longline ($58) in Maldives Green

It came down to the final lap (Olympic reference!) on who would take the final spot in the top 5 between this bra and the Scuba Oversized 1/2 Zip, and it ultimately went to the piece that I felt I was personally most likely to wear.


The Dud: Align™ High-Rise Pant 28″ ($98) in Heritage 365 Camo Beige Multi

We do not need Heritage 365 Camo Beige Multi. We do need this TikTok about it though.

Hear me out when I say this is not something we’re doing. I threw the neutral-loving world a bone by buying a spiced chai Swiftly over the weekend but this is not happening… per me.


From the Soap Box

Topography Multi

Topography Multi is clearly the pattern du jour. I may be a bit more inclined to jump on it, but on my monitor it appears the base may be closer to French Press than Black, which doesn’t really match my personal style. If it’s yours, I am by no mean knocking it. Options galore!
