If you had asked me to pull on some shorty-shorts and hop on a spin bike in front of a crowd, it’s likely that I would politely decline and turn the wheels over to someone else. If lululemon asks, provides the ‘costume’ and adds a room full of (kick-ass) Ambassadors to the scene? …uh, yeah, count me in!
Only in DC do you get an Inaugural “Ball” focused on fitness & the Yala trend (have you heard? Check this craziness out…), with a dose of celebrity and a lululemon fashion show. We weren’t really sure what to expect, but that combination seems pretty worthy of a Saturday night adventure.
EXCITED? Why yes, yes we are…. (blurry iPhone pics took over the night)
We had one mission: show that lululemon will get you through the whole day – brunch to sweat to evening out!
I was chosen, along with Emma (see EPIC yoga) to bust out the Boogie shorts – which work really well for laying. Add in some pant-changes, a few jackets and easy-to-pack shoes and voila! All set for the day.
Brunch: Boogie shorts + Studio Pants + Cool Racerback + All-Sport Bra
Accessories: the classic Jean-jacket and a pair of flats.
Workout: shed the Studio pants & accessories, put on the Nike Frees.
Evening Out: Pull on the Spring has Sprung Wunder Unders (yep, right over the shorts!), add a black blazer & some bling (i.e. earrings & bracelets) and go back to flats.
Enter stage Left and walk to the Spin-bike area. Get down to the basics to workout, then pull on the extras to head out on the town. Easy as 1, 2, 3….
We had a blast; how can a night end badly when you’re rockin’ pants like that?
I’m lucky that my job is casual enough on most days that I can let my lululemon closet decide weekly outfits – along with cardigans, flats, boots, jackets, scarves, etc. – and also take me right to the workout-of-the-day. The colors are always changing and the patterns continue to push the fitness-chic boundaries. I know the price tags are up there, but the quality, versatility and functionality set a new standard. These outfits aren’t a far cry from my daily choices (the patterned pants are new to me…); jeans & cotton take a back-seat to luon all the time.
Do you mix fashion, fitness & function? What are you go-to choices?
