lululemon Tuesday Top 5 (8/20/19)

Not gonna lie, some weeks it’s super easy to narrow down my picks to just five things; today that was really hard.

Buuuuut I did it … so here are my favorites from this week’s new product drop:

Women’s

Ready to Rise Short Sleeve in Light Ivory: I’m all about crop tops right now and this one is so different from anything else I’ve seen. Usually lululemon makes either very loose, boxy crop tops (my fav!) or very, very tight ones that are a little too short for me. This one looks like it could be in the middle of those two fits depending on which size you got (I’d probably choose to size up in this style based on the pictures). I also really love the little cap sleeve and the v-cut back which makes it perfect to show off those cute strappy sports bras. The material is also interesting to me – Ribbed Luxtreme – haven’t seen that before in a top. ($48)

Time To Restore Short Sleeve in Nocturnal Teal: This is a throwback color here, y’all! It’s dark enough to be uber neutral but has just enough color to break up an all-black outfit. The cool thing about this lightweight cotton top is that you can wear it tied in the back or front, which totally changes how tight it fits. ($58)

lululemon Tuesday Top 5 (7/30/19)

I’m part of the lululemon collective and will receive a commission if you make a purchase through the links below.

Here are my favorites from this week’s new product drop:

Stronger as One Ribbed Tank lululemon X Barry’s in Midnight Maroon: This top was actually new last week, but I’m cheating and including it in this week’s Top 5 (it’s my blog, ok. fight me.) I was in San Francisco last week with the Barry’s Bootcamp collab line was released and visited two of the lululemon stores there. I picked up this tank in Midnight Maroon at the Union Street store on Tuesday morning and wore it on Wednesday with black jean shorts. I love this tank and will probably order the Black one too. It’s a slightly more close to the body fit, but it does fit true to size. ($58)

Tracker Short V 4″ in Incognito Camo Multi Gator Green: The Tracker has been one of the top three most popular shorts this summer. The 4″ inseam offers a little extra coverage and the leg hole is more relaxed, leaving room for those #quadgoals. There’s a built-in continuous drawstring so it doesn’t get lost in the wash and a pocket big enough to hold a key, ID and a credit card. ($58)

San Fran Day #5: Muir Woods

I’m part of the lululemon collective and may receive a commission if you make a purchase through the links below.

Today was probably my favorite activity out of everything we did in San Fran (although the walking tour of Chinatown is a close second thanks to our informative yet very funny guide Linda).

Since we didn’t get to go to Yosemite on this trip as planned (biggest bummer of my life), this was the only outdoorsy thing we did and it was the highlight of the trip for me … so I (kindabutnotreally) apologize for how many pictures of trees you’re about to scroll through.

If you’re in the market to see giant trees, there are a few different options in Cali. Although they’re usually just called “redwoods,” there are two different species – the coast redwood and the giant sequoias.

So what’s the difference?

Giant sequoias only grow in the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Cali’s eastern border. They’re the largest living things on Earth, reaching 280 feet tall and 23 feet across (although the largest of them are closer to 300 ft tall and 30 ft across!). The oldest giant sequoias are around 3,000 years old. You can find these massive trees in three groves in Yosemite – Mariposa Grove, Merced Grove and Tuolumne Grove. You can also head to Sequoia National Park, the home of the largest living organism on the planet by volume: the (est.) 2,000-year-old General Sherman. We did not get to see giant sequoias on this trip.

We did get to see coast redwoods. Although they don’t usually get as wide as the giant sequoias, coast redwoods are the tallest trees on the planet. The tallest one, located in Redwood National Forest, is 380 ft tall — that’s as tall as a 37-story building! Like sequoias, these trees also live thousands of years. Try to imagine that. Thousands of years. What’s even more mind-blowing is that coast redwoods as a species have been on the planet for more than 240 million years (like, they were around when dinosaurs existed). Along with Muir Woods and Redwood National Forest, you can find these trees in Humboldt Redwoods State Park and Big Basin Redwoods State Park.

Here are my favorites from this week’s new product drop:

“Selfcare” line: lululemon makes the leap to dry shampoo, deodorant, lip balm & facial moisturizer as of TODAY! This line was released to limited stores (and on Sephora.com), but no lululemon stores in the South East carry it just yet. BUT it’s available online and I’m so excited to try it out!! Let’s be real, dry shampoo saves my life on the daily. ($12-$28)
