Neutral Tuesday

Today it is overcast and a bit cool, (high of 62!) so I'm wearing less blinding colors than I normally tend towards. I love this Mint Moment CRB, and I am so sad that I got a stain on it! It's the first tank from lulu that has ever gotten one, and I attribute that to its pale color and not being heathered. I love the heathered colors that I have and I think that fabric can take more abuse than the solids. So, to cover the stain I am wearing my Pale Pink Swiftly paired with my Pigment Blue Infinity Scarf and Wunder Unders. For me, this is a neutral and understated ensemble.

New Sandals

I am always in the lookout for practical sandals, and these basic flip flops by Juil are such a lovely violet color. It goes so nicely with both corals/pinks and reds. I'm branching out from Birkenstocks, which I've worn since I was 13. These are very soft, and all of the reviews I've read are very positive. They came in a very cool box and included a very colorful yoga mat bag.
I'm wearing my black WU crops, Flare Not so Basic Gym T, and Bordeaux CRB.

How Much is Too Much?

I love love love bright colors. So when my sis called me and said that she got me the Vinyasa scarf in Flare/Inkwell for $19(!) I was super excited. I tried to tone down the rest of my outfit, so I went with my Dewberry and Fossil Wee CRB, orange cashmere J.Crew hoodie, and Splits59 crops. I probably need to start getting some nice neutrals to wear with my brights. There's a fine line between colorful and crazy. I live in that line.

Friday Frills

My husband cannot tell my different lulu crops apart. But he can tell by how I walk in the room if I am wearing new ones! Today I came out in my Run Stay on Course Crops and he said "wait, those must be new. They have frills on them." Clearly, they made an impression. I love the embossed black Glacier Lace print on these, and they do kind of dress up my calves with the ruffles and zippers! I'm also wearing my black Scuba and Flare Stripe CRB.

A Few Jackets that I've Loved and then Lost

Ok, maybe thats a misleading title. I guess I didn't really love them that much if I ended up selling them. But I think it's interesting what things I wear constantly and what items I'm willing to let go of. Here's a few that I've ebayed recently.
1. Define Jacket in Light Flash. This fabric was too stretchy for my taste. Part of why I love the define is the "hold you in" feel of the fabric. So bye bye to this one.
2. Pure Balance Jacket. I loved the super soft fabric on the front ruched panels. But the length of this one just didn't work for me.
3. Define Jacket in Paris Pink. This is one of the most beautiful jackets ever. Ever.
And I knew that some people out in Lululand would give their front teeth for this one. So I sold this beauty for a pretty penny!
4. Sing Floss Travel Jacket in Wren. I love the fit of this one. It's long but very form fitting, unlike the Stride/In stride. I decided to sell this one when it started getting too faded for my taste.

So that's a little sampling of the jackets that have rotated in and out of my wardrobe.

Mellow Monday

I love this new Mellow Lemon Stripe CRB! Mer and I are twinsies, and that makes me love it more. Also wearing my SE Black Scuba and Wee Inkwell Run Inspires. And lets not forget my orange Mizunos! I just started getting blisters from my raspberry colored ones, and I am mailing them back in the hopes that they will replace them. They are only a few months old, and mizuno has a 1 year warranty. I love when companies stand behind their products, especially when they are meant for active use. I will let you know how it all pans out.

Tiny Zipper Week!

I have 2 new pair of lulu bottoms that I've purchased this week. First, I won some Run Go for It Crops in Black Embossed Glacier with Paris Pink Accents on eBay!! Woohoo! I got a steal, as these have been going for crazy amounts. I also got some Pleasing Pants in Charcoal at my local store for ... drumroll please... $29! Crazy! These are so incredibly comfy. And both of these new pants have little zippers on the bottom. Which is kind of hilarious, as I have legendary calf muscles, and they really do need some breathing room. My husband calls my Gather and Crow crops my Hulk Pants, as he said it looks like a flexed my calves and split them open. Not too far from the truth.
Anyhow, I'm very happy with my new purchases. And I'm down to only 3 lulu jackets and I need need need to buy a new one!! Here's hoping some amazing new stuff comes out soon.

Bee's CRB Collection!

I was at my sister's house this morning and I jumped on the chance to document her freshly laundered pile of tanks! This woman LIVES in these. Lives. I know for a fact that her lulu collection is so glorious she tries to launder it in phases so her wonderful husband doesn't have a heart attack to see it all together!
She is a fan of the greys. I will try and see if I can name all of her colors from memory:
1. Bordeaux Drama Tonka Stripe
2. Shell Pink/Black Classic Stripe
3. Indigo/white Bold Stripe
4. Polar Haze (?)/black Classic Stripe
5. Black/White Mini Stripe
6. Grey/cream Stripe
7. Wee Are From Space Fossil grey
8. Wee Ghost Stripe
9. Pearlux Special Ed XLong Charcoal
10. Black Swan
11. Angel Blue
I am pretty sure I'm correct on 75% of those names. Thanks for the tour, Bee!
