August 31st, Do you Lulu?

Not so cute!
Lululemon pullover, skirt and workout top

Let’s face it, some days moms just want (and need) to run around town in casual,
comfortable wear. We go to the gym, the grocery store, the dry cleaner, Target, the bank… and we want to be comfortable! So, today’s post is ‘Workout Wednesday’. Since today is my tennis day anyway- (and per my cute tennis friend Mary’s suggestion) I am showing workout clothes today.

Now, there are 2 types of workout clothes. Those that are functional, yet not fashionable and those that are both. See the picture on the left. This is just not that cute. The boring baggy black workout pants look a little too Sue Sylvester for me. The black fleece is very Seattle, but not so exciting.

Introducing Lululemon– on the right. This line of exercise clothing is fabulous! They are extremely comfortable and flattering clothes.

There are a few things you need to know about Lulu before you go:

1. It is expensive (sorry!)

2. Sizes are weird. In Lulu, I am a 6. (In regular clothes I’m a 4 or sometimes a 2)

3. They have a huge variety of styles of tops for all body types. Ask for help in the store or go online.

4. Their clothes can be worn for anything- you don’t have to be playing tennis to wear a skirt. You can run in it, walk the dog in it, do the elliptical in it, grocery shop in it!  It’s fun and cute!

Here are some more pics of my outfit:

Notice the cute ruffle detail on the sleeve
I love that Lulu offers multiple pieces in the same color- for easy layering. Here is without the jacket. But boy do my boobs look small! A different style top might be more flattering. I'll show a different one next week! Stay tuned!
Love the pleating on the skirt!

I’m Always Up for a Party!

I’m entering into a contest* this week sponsored by the fabulous Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly . The contest is titled Arm Party- and the assignment is to stack as many bracelets as possible on. I guess this is the new trend~I’m learning as I go!!

So crack open the champagne, here is my Arm Party! I’m wearing a combo of bracelets, the one with 3 chains is Silpada; the black, white and silver are all from Kohl’s and the small braided one is David Yurman.

Let me know what you think! Is this something you you’ll try?

* Leave it to me- I was late for the party… the contest ended August 3rd. Oh well, I had fun trying! I’d still love your comments and feedback.
