Runnin' The Bases

I snagged these Black Grape/Swan Baserunners last night at the store!! And they only cost $10! Well, not exactly. But I had a pair of Groove pants hemmed last week and when I tried them on one leg was an inch shorter than the other one. And since they are sold out of all size 10 black Groove pants (it's a crisis!) they just gave me $98 towards any pant. So now I am as cozy as a Rulu bug in a rug. And those these aren't the color I wanted initially, I do adore this one and I'm super happy. 
I just read that a Lulu outlet just opened up in Camarillo- how am I just now hearing about this!?! Not that I think the outlets are great. I haven't seen much there that I'd ever want. But fun to check out! Have any of you been there?  Who knows, maybe it's a good one!

My Almost Boxing (Day) Match

I knew that this year my local store was going to really go all out for Boxing Day. Multiple employees had told me, so I was ready to burn thru some gift cards and Christmas cash at 9 am when they opened up this morning. I found regular priced items that I adored, as well as the Bark Berry Baserunner pants. I tried on the pants, even thought they were a size up, and really liked them! Being the last pair of that color I knew that they were going to be marked down. So I asked a manager if they would be.
NOTE: This manager has not been very nice to me in the past. Not really sure why.
So, she says "No, these are the most popular style and they wont be marked down soon."
I get in line with my mom and as I am waiting I see her with those very pants. Hmmmmm. Where is she going with those?
Sure enough, she marked them down. And hung them on the sale rack. And didn't tell me. I walked over to look and see what she'd marked them at after I paid. I didn't buy them, even thought I really wanted to. How Mean!!!! She'd rather be rude and unkind to a customer AND loose a sale? Wow. Maybe she had a crappy Christmas.
In other news, I bought the new Strap It Like It's Hot bra, in black, and I LOVE it! Holds me in loads better than the All Sport or the Energy. I think it's my new favorite.
And I maybe picked up the & GO 'Til Dawn dress. Just to see!!!! And obsess over because it is amazing. I sized up to a 12, as the 10 was tight in the bust on me. It is truly beautiful. Such a flattering shape, and perfect for so many things!!!!
Hope you all are having a happy weekend! Don't punch anyone on Boxing Day.

Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas!!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!! I am finally an adult, meaning I look forward to GIVING gifts instead of receiving them- I know. It's a real breakthrough. Also, I'm saving my $$$ for Boxing Day craziness tomorrow. I'm hearing this Boxing Day is gonna be bigger than Black Friday!

Weekend High Times.

I get scared wearing these Silver Fox High Times- I'm so worried I'm gonna wreck them! But I will not live in fear. So here I am wearing them with my Aviator Nation hoody and some layered tanks.
We are in full Christmas mode at our house, so white pants seemed snow-like! They remind me of the birch trees that were in my old neighborhood. Ahhhhh, bring on the gingerbread, caroling, and candy cane everything!!! 

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Explosions of Comfort.

Uggs, flannel, and a high rise waistband. Who is more comfy than ME!?
I have my High Times on today. This pique fabric is a pill-fest, but I have a sweater stone and that helps me de-crap them every few weeks. 
Also, these Patagonia Fjord flannels are the bestest. I have 4!!!! Hope you all are staying cozy today. I am!

My Black Friday Deals

Here is a run down on what I bought yesterday. I did go to Lululemon first, and though there was a ton of sale I didn't find anything I needed. My mom found a sweet deal on a Vinyasa scarf ($24) and a Define Jacket ($79).
 My best deals were at Kitson! I scored these Frends Layla headphones for $38, and a couple pair of Birkenstocks for $42! They were doing 50% off of sale, so that is an amazing discount!

I did a little online shopping at home and also bought some Bobbi Brown makeup, since you can get 15% off your first order, free shipping, and a free gift! I love when all the deals line up. I got the Classic Red gift, and I am super excited about it. I also ordered the Art Sticks.

My buddy got them and they might be the prettiest lip colors I have ever seen! Looks like now they are offering 20% off everything, so now the time to buy the boring powder and foundation.
I think I did pretty good this year. I didn't go crazy, and I had most of the day to hang out with my family and play at the beach. I don't want to be held captive by a deal-that-might-be and miss my life! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, and are able to enjoy the people you love.

Shhhhhh! Black Friday Secrets.

So, word on the street is that SOME select stores with be getting many many boxes of markdowns. So unlike some years, this one might be a good in-store sale! Usually my local store just rolls out the clearance rack and loads it with multiples of sizes to appear like its a "super sale", but this year I was told they are getting 30 boxes of fun sale goodies!!! So you know where I'll be at 7 am tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving !!!

Layer Cake.

I haven't ripped the tags off of this Scuba III in heathered fatigue YET. Yet. I love this color, and it finally cooled off here in SoCal, and hoodies are my weakness. Seriously. I have a problem. 
I layered it over a Bordeaux Crb and grey Heart Opener tank. A tank with a jacket is my fav, as I overheat in a heartbeat. I am keeping this one at home to try out for a bit before I commit. Who knows what amazingness will be uploaded today!?

Thursday, November 5, 2015


It's that time of year again. When Lululemon hires its holiday help. Sheesh.  
I asked where the Run Inspire crops were at my local store yesterday and i was met with blank stares. "Lemme check. Oh, so the Run Inspires are now called Pace Rival, ok?". No, Gaston. Not ok. His "lulu ed trainer" assured me that these new crops were way better and the old ones gave her muffin top and these are waaaaaay better. 
First world spoiled brat problems, right?!
Oh well.  
Here is my outfit today.

The Good Old Days.

Scored these pretty crops on eBay for $25! They are Special Edition WUC with a little black ruffle right at the bottom. I miss these little fun details! 
Hoping we will see some things along this line soon.  

Also, the High Rise WUC are officially the best thing ever to put on when you're feeling a little on the puffy side. Everyone should have a pair! I have 3. Wait, maybe 4.

I've Got Mermaid Legs When I'm With You.

I am in love with these!!! The textured luxtreme is one of my favorite fabrics, and the colors in these new Space dye twist cosmic teal multi Wunder Unders....... Wow. I really do feel like a mermaid.  If you are on the fence about these,  just give them a try.

Friday Deal Alert!

So I am a little obsessed with my Birkenstock sandals. I have been wearing them for 20 years (oh goodness, that's crazy) and while I love the amazing new colors and all, their popularity has made finding good deals near impossible! But today Urban Outfitters has 30% off sale, and 40% if you download their app! So I scored some new $160 sandals for around $80 with tax.

Bruised Ego.

So excited that I scored these bad boys on eBay for $30 last week! Inspires are my hands down favorite crops to work out in, and I now have 4 pair. This is my only solid color, as my others are WAFS in various colors. Though these aren't the most flattering of all my crops, I adore the color and think that I can get away with them....... 
I am needing some new running shoes, but I just cannot handle shelling out $100+!! I have Nike Pegasus now. There are some Nike Frees on sale at 6PM that I like, but I've never tried them before. Does anyone have any suggestions? Are they too loosey goosey or is Free where it's at?

Fox Lady.

Well, truth be told I only wore this for 20 minutes before I changed to go to the beach. But I wanted to tell you about the new-ish Circadion Tank! I bought it in black (sized down to an 8) and it is such a good staple. It has a very discreet black logo on the side, and I've worn it to church and out on a date. I love that it's not "workout" gear. Just a nice simple cotton tank that keeps its shape. I kinda want it in every color. 
I paired it with my High Times Silver Fox Stripe with flash zippers.

Title Nine, You Dirty Dog.

I will admidt, almost everytime I've gotten this catalog in the past I don't look through it.
This Title Nine Fall/Winter collection is kind of amazing! There are tons of things that I'd love to try on, and I'm sad they dont have a store near by. I don't like to tie up my funds with online purchases and returns ( I'm looking at you, Athleta!), but I might just have to order a couple of these beauties to try on.
Here are my Title Nine Picks:
1. Super Power 1/4 Zip Sweater.
Maybe it's the Norwegian in me, but this is just plain amazing. I love the color choices and I could imagine it looking super on all sorts of people. And what better way to break up a boring black color palette than with this shock of colors and patterns!
2. Wheels Whimsy Skirt
I think that wool is such an awesome activewear fabric, and I can see wearing this exactly like the girl in the picture. Layered over leggings with boots- too cute.
3. Dusk Till Dawn Baselayer
I can attest to the awesome powers of wool being a no stink fabric. I wore Icebreaker for my entire honeymoon in Italy, and it was perfect! So even though this is a pricey one, the colors are so gorgeous and you really could wear it all day everyday.
4. Flip Top Hydro Flask
My husband and I are always stealing this from each other! It is truly an amazing coffee cup, or for whatever else you'd want to keep crazy hot or super cold. Love that they are based in Bend, OR too!
5. 25 Hour Tight
You know I am a sucker for spacedye. I think it is so surprisingly flattering, and really helps hide imperfections. Ok, imperfections is a poor word to choose. Cause no one is without them! Hmmmm. How about this:
Spacedye leggings can help us be less distracted by our bodily insecurities and focus on living a happy life! Maybe an overstatement. But you get it.
Well, that's all from me here today. Please share with me if you've gotten anything from Title Nine that you love! They are really stepping up their game.

I snagged this beauty on eBay, and I think that Beachscape is one of Lulu's strongest prints ever! It's so colorful and looks so unique. I wish I would have gotten the matching pants, but they sold out in a flash. 

Saturday, September 19, 2015


Just changed out of my shorts into my WAFS WUC in Fatigue. Today I wore shorts to my son's soccer game AND Trader Joes! Breakthrough. It helps that my legs have gotten super duper tan. Tan legs just have it easier. And mine need any break they can get!
Anyway, I went into Lulu last night and was very underwhelmed by their fall selection. Where is the excitement??? It was just a bunch of wine colored pants and nothing even tempted me. And I like wine colored pants! Oh well. My $$$ needs a break anyways. I bought an Aviator Nation hoodie and even though I got it on eBay it was pretty pricey. But if you love a thin vintage hoodie you have to try one!! They are amazing.

Back in the Hood.

A Sorry for my absence! I was on an epic road trip with my family all over the Pacific Northwest.
I bought this Scuba II (These are the last ones!  )in Iris Twist (or something like that) and brought it with, just hoping for a chill in the air. It was awesome! I love love love this pattern. I don't like Scubas usually, but this one I had to have. It was just too pretty. And the fit is better for me than my previous ones. This one is less bulky in the arms and fits better in the body. But really, it looks like a textile from South America! It's so unique and I plan on wearing it to shreds. It's sold out in almost every size now, but if you're a 2 or 4 I would jump on it.

Straight to Freedom

FREEDOM! I love this tank I just bought from Walk in Love. I got a size large and it's just the right amount of loose without being too billowy. I paired it with a white crb that is so faded and greyed out its embarrassing. Oh well. Also wearing my Straight  to Class pants. 

Wednesday, September 2, 2015


I adore Black Cherry. It might be my favorite non black option. It finally cooled down enough around here for my to slip these babies on. The Jet Slim is not the most flattering pant around, but it sure beats any sweatpants I own. If you've got hips (I do!) and you maybe passed on trying these on- give them a go! And demand that you pay $88, and not the new jacked up $98! Come on, Lulu!!! 

Saturday, August 22, 2015

I WILL have a Good Weekend.

Heading to look for sea glass with my fam, so these Skinny Wills are perfect since they have pockets! I layered this Regal Plum CRB over my new Radventure tank. Hope you all have a super weekend!! 

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Such a Fox

I don't wear these Silver Fox High Times as much as I thought I would, but that's because I know how much I could sell them for and I don't want to stain them! They really are super cute. And I love the side zippers, even though some people feel that the Flare color makes it hard to pair with a top. Most of my shirts work well with super brights, so that doesn't bother me. 
I miss my vests, and this summer has been beautiful, but I am ready for scarves and Uggs and jacket-y weather. Or as close to that as we get in SoCal.

Trapper Keeper.

These Sea Wheeze Trackers totally look like my old Trapper Keeper from 1994! They make me happy.
I always size up in shorts because I have a long waist, so that extra inch of fabric is needed, and I have some mega quads, so I'd rather not "Hulk" out of them. "Hulking out" is a term I use when I feel like my clothing is about the explode due to my awesome muscles.

Roll out....

I couldn't resist!! I am a Wee Space fan, especially when it comes to crops. This might be my 6th pair. Might! I haven't done an official count.  Anyhow, I was at the beach for 6 hours and came home to find these waiting for me at home! After washing down kids, boards, bath, snacks,........ I tried them on- YES. These are gonna be perfecto.
P.S. Vans are on crazy sale at J. Crew! I found these in my local store for $25, and they have these awesome silver ones online. 

Saturday, July 18, 2015

Wunderfully Made.

I picked up these WUC Rolldown in black yesterday and I really like them so far! I have a longer torso, so the Rolldown waist isn't that crazy high on me. If anyone is pregnant I would highly recommend moving into these for the next few years. Seriously. Where were you, Lulu, when I was expecting !? Also wearing the What the Sport tank in Black Cherry. 
I didn't buy anything from the warehouse sale, but I did check it out a few times. In the past few weeks I have aquired quite a few things, so I slapped my hand and held back. I would have loved another pair of Herringbone Skinny Wills, but I try and not have duplicates. And then they sold out, so that was that. 

Saturday, July 11, 2015


I did it. I bought some crazy pants. But I love them!! These Slim Jet pants are super fun and surprisingly flattering-ish. I mean, black and other dark colors are always more slimming, but sometimes I really just love a crazy print. And paired with this Deep Navy CRB I think I look pretty balanced. I may have to try these pants on in Black Cherry, as they are a nice non-legging option. 

Thursday, July 9, 2015

Wee Don't think this is Enough Support.

I wore my WAFS Power Y this morning, and I quickly realized why I rarely pick it. That little shelf bra doesn't cut it!! So it's for laundry days or laying out at the beach. 
And I busted these old crops out today- I think they are the Bandhi crops?? The seaming on them is so cool, and the little ties at the calf are so unique. I think these are about 5 years old.

My Case for Owning 15 Cool Racerback Tanks.

So these are my CRBs. I wear one every single day, some days two! They are my hands down favorite item that Lululemon makes and I am always buying and selling them to refresh my little obsession. If you've seen my collection posts before you'll notice I no longer have a rainbow of colors. Things are more subdued. Also I often buy them when they're marked down or crazy cheap on eBay, so many of these weren't my ideal first choice, but have become near and dear to me. Here are the colors:
1. Mellow Lemon/Ocean Stripe
2. Deep Navy
3. Lullaby Blue
4. Bordeaux Drama Tonka stripe
5. WAFS Jeweled Magenta
6. Muted Mauve
7. Twin Stripe Violet/inkwell
8. Capillano Stripe
9. Black
10. Gator Green
11. Heathers Wren
12. Heathered Coal
13. Cool Mint
14. Mint Moment 
15. White

We Made WAY Too Much.

Wow. Left the outlet empty handed for myself, with a $19 City Skirt for my sis. Seriously, the entire store was full to the brim with everything that's been on markdown the last 6 months. And aside from some weekend specials, nothing was cheaper than the online price. The line for the dressing rooms is crazy town, and after wasting time standing in it I walked away. They also had the Miss Misty for $39, but I already passed on this one once, so I decided against it. Honestly, I think in-store sales are way better. Or just buy something full price if you love it!! 
There's my 2 cents about the Outlet. 

Lulu Outlet??

I'm stopping at a Lulu outlet in the next few hours, and I have no idea what I'm gonna find. Visions of $10 tanks are dancing in my head, but I have a feeling it's gonna be a let down. Have any of you ever made it to an outlet? Good/bad?? I'll let you know what my experience is like!

Thursday, June 25, 2015

Wee are Ready for the Weekend.

I only have one pair of Wunder Unders, and these are them! Fatigue WAFS crops, paired with a Gator Green CRB and my new Land of Lincoln tank.
And don't forget my NEON Birks!

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Later, Gator.

I am totally obsessed with this Gator Green!! It's the perfect interesting neutral. Dark enough to match everything and appear slimming, but NOT black!! I sized down to an 8, which I've done in a few of my CRBs. I'm blonde with brown eyes and more olive/tan skin, and I really like this color on me. Paired it today with my WAFS Inkwell Inspires and some neon Birks. I dream loaded my lulu cart last night, and the total was $500! Just from this last upload. I didn't hit "purchase", cause I also want to feed my kids, haha.  

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Sea Wheeze Poser.

I snaked these bad boys on eBay, and I love them!! Trackers are the only current style of shorts I will wear, and these remind me of my dear TrapperKeepers from 1989. Win! And why not go crazy and pair a striped CRB with polka dots? So I did. These shorts have been going for between $50-80 online, but thanks to the exchange rate I scored these for less than retail! 
In other news, my legs are the most tan they've been in years. So that gives me motivation to keep wearing shorts. I just need to remember to shave my legs...

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

What the....

I snagged this What the Sport tank last week on WMTM and I am really liking it! I dislike the 105 Singlet (it's sister tank). I bought and sold 3 different versions! Just too billowy for me. 
Anyway. I really like this one in that it's super thin, fitted enough to show my shape, but not skin tight. I bought a 10, so TTS. I'm wearing my trusty High Times, and I am up to 3 pair of these! They are perfect for Pilates, which I am really loving these days. 

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Beta Fish Pants.

I don't know why, but this Spacedye Jaquard fabric in these jewel tones reminds me of the scales of a beta fish! It's so unique, which is maybe why these High Times are already sold out. My store still had some, so I'm happy about that. I'm wearing them with a Sol Angeles sweatshirt and Birks. June Gloom has set in here in California, so this is me bundling up. Haha 

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Spaced Out.

I only have one pair of WUC, and these are them! WAFS Fatigue pairs so nicely with pretty much any color, and today I'm wearing a retro Billabong tank that's pretty much a wardrobe staple. I also have this funky Lulu headband that I got in sale a while back. It doesn't work for exercise but it's fun for casual wear. I am always buying and selling headbands. When I have more than 5 I feel like a glutton! I maybe have 6 now, so someone has to go.......

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Cuppa Cocoa.

Busting out my Cocoa Pique High Times today! These have some pretty bad pilling going on, but since they have such a complex texture you can't really notice. I'm also wearing my black crb and Patagonia Henley. 
Where were these pants when I was pregnant!? Literally, these are glorified maternity leggings. 

Thursday, April 30, 2015

I swore I would never...

...but here I am, wearing shorts! Granted, it's just to the beach with my boys, but still. I big stretch for me. I love these Beachscape Groovy Run shorts. I cannot wear any style other than these and trackers. My mega quads kinda dominate. And I don't like it to look like my pants just exploded when I flexed. So these are a happy amount of leg showing for me. 
Also picked up this Deep Navy crb. I love brights, but I do need nice deep colors to pair with them. 

Friday, April 24, 2015

When the stripes aline.

Wearing my new High Times today! Pairing them with my black crb and a Patagonia sweater. 
The ankle zippers on these might be my favorite lulu detail this year. I am a sucker for neon! 

Monday, April 20, 2015

Wild Times!

I was out of town this weekend and bought a vacation outfit! The Wild tank in Dark Cherry/coral and the very elusive High Times in Silver Fox stripe and coral zipper!!! So excited about the high times- this striped luxtreme is one of my favorite fabrics ever. I lucked out, as they were a return and the only pair in the store. The Ed said that all of the employees bought the first shipment out!! 

Saturday, April 11, 2015

Electric Coral vs. Flash

Here is a side by side of Flash (top)and Electric  Coral (bottom). Flash is more pink. Just fyi. 

Friday, April 10, 2015

The Crops to Wear when you want to Blend In.

Not sure if I'm keeping them, but I bought these crazy Electric Coral Roll Down WUC!! It really is one of my favorite colors of all time. And these crops are GLOWING!! Really. If you're one to run in traffic these are for you. 
Has anyone else tried them? 

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Brace Yourselves.

These pants are calling to me!! They are calling to the 16 year old art student me, who wore her patchwork jeans everyday and didn't give a $&@# what anyone thought. I am just warning you all now- you might see a mom in her thirties rocking these at a playground near you.

Feeling Fluffed up from too much Sugar.

Candy is hidden from the kids and me, so we are starting this week off with lots of raw foods and outside time. I'm wearing my Skinny Wills in Giant Herringbone, Black crb, Patagonia Fjord flannel, Fluffed up vest in black, and New Balance Minimus shoes. I just got these shoes at REI and even though they were a super deal, I am hesitating wearing them outside. I have kind of a thing for fun and colorful shoes. And I don't have teensy feet, so they take up some serious closet space! Has anyone tried these shoes and loved them? Do tell!
