5 Faves & a Dud: 9/6/22 Edition

5 Faves & a Dudlululemon

It happens every year without fail. I get 3/4 into my stint at the US Open, and the only way I can get a hit of dopamine is by going on an unnecessary lululemon bender. After working until 3am, all of the hotel treadmills were taken this afternoon, meaning I had to run outside in the rain.

Self pity levels are obviously high. So let’s just say I’m a couple hundred dollars lighter this afternoon. What’s on its way home to me?

Favorite #1: Hotty Hot High-Rise Lined Short 4″ in Moonlit Magenta

Ad far as purple shorts go, I experienced a bit of a disappointment earlier this year with the Vivid Plum Speed Ups’ not showing up as *vivid* as I’d have hoped they would IRL. Ended up giving them to my sister, so I’m taking another shot on these!

Favorite #2: Fast and Free High-Rise Crop 19″ in Smoked Spruce

I may not partake in the PSL madness, but I’m ready for the summer slime to move out and dig into fall y’all. Smoked Spruce is all in here looking like a flannel-wearing fireside-sitting marshmallow roastin’ SNACK. These are mine now.

Worth noting that if 19″ isn’t your bag, Smoked Spruce also dropped in the 23″ inseam option.

Favorite #3: Base Pace Ribbed Tank Top in Smoked Spruce

I’ve been loving my Base Pace Tanks this summer, what’s one more to add into the collection? The second half of a matching run set, that’s what. 😁

Favorite #4: Court Rival High-Rise Skirt Long in Pale Raspberry

This is now the second Court Rival I need to talk myself off the ledge on, especially since the Poolside Court Rival hit WMTM last week. It’s ✨gorgeous✨ and I don’t need it I don’t need it I don’t need it I don’t need it 😫

Favorite #5: Speed Up High-Rise Lined Short 4″ in Electric Turquoise

In case you refuse to give up on summer and trust yourself not to drip a popsicle into your lap or sit on a grody park bench, here ya go.

The Dud: Adapted State High-Rise Cropped Jogger 23″ in Moonlit Magenta

For the longest time, I haven’t liked yogurt. I like the flavor of true froyo, I don’t mind the gloppy consistency of pudding. Put them together to make yogurt? Nope.

I like the color (as evidenced by the shorts I just ordered), and I don’t mind the style of these joggers. However, something about the combination of the two is a bit off for me.

  1. I got so excited for the reflective hotty hots until I saw the price. I finally have my stable of sonic pink, poolside, and charged indigo so I guess now it’s time for fall hues.
