If you read my last fitness post you would have seen that I’ve decided to sort my lifestyle out and begin exercising.
So to go with that exercise I need the perfect outfit to wear right!? Any excuse to shop and spend money.
I went online to have a look a Lululemon. I hadn’t purchased anything for a while from them so decided, screw it, I’m going to buy something. Especially since I had just sold a bunch of things on Trademe.
I scoped out a few pieces of clothing online and came across a number of items I was interested in.
It was time to go try them out in store, lucky for me they even had a little sale going on.
I ended up splurging on a few pieces in the end, sadly the majority not on sale – feeling spendy!?
I’m excited to wear some of these new pieces to work out! They’ve got me feeling motivated and confident to go to the gym and do my thing.
The High Times Pants
I love how these hold your tummy in so you feel secure and flat when working out. I wanted this grey colour for over a year now and have been waiting for them to re-release it! I missed out the last couple times. They’re so cute and could look great with some white converse and a waterfall cardigan for more of a day time relaxed look.
Ta Ta Tamer 3 in Seal Grey
This is the perfect sports bra for girls with larger busts. I’m pretty sad I can’t fit most of Lululemon amazing sports bra designs – I often love their different back features but thankfully they have the Ta Ta Tamer which does cater to us bustier girls. When I saw this new seal grey colour I just had to have it! It fits so well, especially being a bra style which adjusts at the back and straps. There are removable inserts as well, in case you don’t want that extra bit of moulding.
Y Top in Pink
I’m not someone who EVER wears pink. But there was something about this pink, I really liked. Because it looked great with the grey high times pants, I purchased it. I also figured it would look even better with the black ones I already had. The top has a built in shelf bra – something I don’t usually like but I tried it on with nothing under and it surprisingly looked OK still. The top has some thin removable inserts in the bust – I’ll be removing mine as if I was to wear a sports bra underneath it becomes quite bulky with the shelf bra AND some moulding.
Also with this top being marked down to $29 from $69 it was an absolute steal!
Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve in Lilac
This lilac tone is my absolute FAV colour. I love it so much that I decided I HAD TO purchase something in this colour. I had seen these long sleeve tops online and always wanted one. I sized up quite a bit as I didn’t want it to be super tight. The thumb hole detail is always an added plus for me. The fabric has silverscent technology which means it inhibits the growth of bacteria, which causes us to smell, especially when working out.
Speed Crop in Navy
These cropped work out pants are the PERFECT length for me. Being quite short, with especially short legs, the cropped styles tend to be full length. This means no bunched up fabric at the ankles, making you look bulky. I love the panel detailing on these pants, they are so flattering to the figure. But it is the rouged ankle detail in particular which drew me to these crops. I’m a sucker for things with a little added detail, making them just a tad more unique than the average item. The navy colour is also a nice change from the common basic black, and it still goes with all the other Lululemon items I own.
They only had half the items I wanted in stock so I ordered the pants and bra online in the size/colours I wanted. The shipping is free so it is super convenient. Not to mention it arrives pretty fast – I ordered Sunday and received the package by Wednesday.
I already have a few items from Lululemon and they’re by far the best quality fitness wear I’ve ever purchased. Also, if you ever get sick of your clothes and want to purchase something new, they hold great value on Trademe so you can get close to what you paid for, for items – another great perk.
