From Downward Dog to Dinner
Don’t worry guys, this is not turning into a fashion blog. I’m definitely not cool enough for that.
That, and the fact that my fiance-turned-photographer does not have the patience to put up with the demanding diva persona that emerges whenever bulbs are flashing. We call her “Mariah,” and she’s not well-liked.
Despite what this looks like, these clothes are actually fitness-related. In case you haven’t been to lululemon recently, let me inform you — they are stepping it up majorly in the style department.
Their activewear, that was once reserved for the yoga studio, is now resembling apparel you’d see on the runway.
In luluemon’s Fall 2014 &go line, you’ll find bold florals, mesh cutouts and chunky knits that are perfect for taking you from vinyasa to the office to happy hour with your gals.
I got to check out the versatile looks recently at a brunch in downtown LA hosted by my friend, the manager of lululemon Robertson.
One of my favorite pieces is the adorable The Sweater The Better ($98) in purple – perfect for keeping you warm in these cool fall months, pre and post exercise.
I got it a few sizes larger than I would normally wear so it would fit nice and loose for layering. It’s soft and breathable, and I especially love the geometric embroidery and the thumbholes to keep my hands comfy.
I think this ensemble is an excellent example of how fitness apparel can be jazzed up for everyday wear.
Another top that I am currently obsessed with from the &go line is the black and white floral On the Go Tee ($36).
That’s right, it’s on sale for $36. Mind-boggling, I know.
When I saw it, it reminded me of a similar style of shirt I got from TopShop last year – except that top was about $100.
If you didn’t tell me this was from lululemon, I would never guess it was made by an activewear label.
What sets this top apart from your standard street-wear though is the fabric.
This top is made from moisture wicking, 4-way stretch, wrinkle-free fabric. This means you can toss it in your gym bag and have it still look amazing when you throw it on after a gym-sesh.
This photo was taken minutes after pulling it out of my overnight bag at a friend’s house to wear to dinner — after it had sat in a crumpled little ball in my car all day.
No one was the wiser.
Visit lululemon Robertson to check out these awesome looks in person and head over to their website to see all the cool free events they have going on each month.
I hope you all enjoyed this Fit Fashion Friday post and that you have a wonderful — stylishly active — weekend.
