What I Bought on My Summer Vacation: July 2022 lululemon Roundup


I like to think I behaved in July. Then, I typed the list out. Yes, it’s long, but… lots of this came from the Wrentham outlet or WMTM. New items still take up the same room in my closet but… whatevs.

I hadn’t raced to take the tags off the Scream Green Light Hotty Hot Skirt I purchased in June, so on Day 30 I brought it back to my local store. I tried on the lululemon Hike collection (nothing inspired me to purchase that day), and instead I tripped and fell into a new appreciation for the Align Tank’s updated fit (wider straps). Naturally, I bought 3 of them. 😇

lululemon Favorites: July 2022

I absolutely love that lululemon’s leaned into the bright colors this summer. If the vibe wasn’t “box of highlighters”, I didn’t want it. Unless it was marked down Night Diver. You’re welcome, Future Katy.

Pretty proud of myself, TBH. Out of 12 items purchased, only a single one was black! Ninja vibes will resume soon enough. Placing an over/under on… Tuesday, maybe.

The first 5 items on the list were an outlet haul. I couldn’t believe my eyes when Everglade Green was hanging there in my size… easy grab. The next lot of 3 was my first WMTM order in a while! Been loving the Waterside Swim I got back in May, so while I couldn’t get a full red set, I was happy to score at least *half*. Then, there was the whole “I am exercising my right to change my opinion on the Align Tank now that the fit has been updated” thing. New boyfriend means a renewed interest in cute loungewear, okay? 😏

The Ratings, Explained

  • The All Aligned Mock Neck was marked way down, so I figured maybe I could work it into an outfit when it gets cooler. Did my best to block out the 95 degree temps the day I tried it on. I haven’t pulled it out since, so I really can’t rate yet. I think I had to settle for a size 10, so it’s a little looser than I’d have preferred.
  • The Power Stride Crew Sock is part stylish and part useful for midtops and 90s vibes.
  • Yes, lululemon quietly widened the straps of the Align Tank over the summer. From my original fit review in 2020, I had a tough time feeling the hype in the original fit. This slight update and going back down to TTS? I’m so incredibly here for it. No more quad boob!
  • I am also leaving a TBD on the Chargefeel Mid Workout Shoe, because the only places I’ve worn them is TikTok and the grocery store. I’ve had to be cautious with footwear (hooray trying to manage running injuries while training for a marathon), so I haven’t put them through a training session yet. I recommend wearing higher socks with these kicks, as the ankle-height sock liner can rub your ankles and potentially cause chafing in weird spots during sweaty sessions.
