As much as I love dressing up, I LOVE dressing down. Majority of my weekend days (or work from home days) are spent in my favorite pieces from my one of my favorite brands - Lululemon.
I wholeheartedly admit that I am a true Lululemon (or Lulu as I lovingly call it) addict.
Lulu has been a staple in my wardrobe for the past 10 years. My two aunts introduced me to Lulu when they brought me into one of the Montreal locations on Greene Ave and showed me how they will actually hem your pants for you - a HUGE bonus for us short ladies!
Since then, I have been collecting Lulu items that, to date, have stood the test of time. I still have a jacket and pants from 10 years ago that look great. Seriously, how many pairs of yoga pants do YOU own that have lasted that long and have not faded or ripped??? And how many pairs of leggings do you have that are NOT see-thru and can perform double duty as workout pants and going out attire with heels? Oh how I love you, my darling Wunder Unders!
One of the biggest complaints I hear about Lulu is the price. Sure, they are a bit more expensive than other pieces of workout/loungewear but we're talking super high quality items. I have no problem buying something that is a bit pricey if it lasts long and looks good while doing it. If you compare the quality of Lulu pants to Victoria's Secret, Gap or any others, I guarantee you will see a HUGE difference!
Below are a few of my recent and classic favorites from Lulu...I have each of these items in multiple colors and as long as they keep making them, I will keep buying them! All can be found on lululemon.com
Tops from left to right: Define Jacket, No Limits Tank (in Flash, my new favorite color), InStride Jacket (the Stride Jacket is a fave too...it has a hood), and the Run: Tame Me Tank (has a cinchable bottom so you can wear long or shorter). Fit tip: if you are looking for a longer, less fitted look with the jackets, order a size or two up.
Headbands: Black Slipless headband and Purple (concord grape) Lucky Luon
Pants from left to right: Astro Pants (waist can be folded down or worn higher to conceal muffin top on bloated days), Groove Pants (these make your butt look ah-mazing), Wonder Unders (see above), and Studio Pants.
