Here are my top 5 must-haves from this week’s new markdowns:

[ All my top 5 picks this week are from the lululemon X Barry’s collaboration collection released last month. ]

Women’s

Stronger As One Ribbed Tank in Midnight Maroon: I bought this tank in San Fran last month and I’m still obsessed with it! I don’t usually wear tight-fitting shirts, but this one fits close to the body without making me feel self-conscious. My fav outfit rn is this tank, my Formation Camo Aligns, my Ready To Roll Crew sweatshirt and my Nike platform sneakers … I’ve been known to wear this outfit twice in one work-week. Don’t judge. $58 -> $49

Stronger As One Tight 25″ in Black: Luxtreme fabric means high support, high breathability and high moisture-wicking for your high impact workouts. Mesh panels in the front and back provide extra ventilation to prevent overheating. As always, the model makes these look much shorter than they fit on me; I’m 5’4″ and 25″ inseams hit right at my ankle. $118 -> $79

lululemon Markdown Lowdown (8/29/19)

Here are my top 5 must-haves from this week’s new markdowns:

Women’s

Muscle Love Crop Tank in Rustic Coral: I actually wore this tank in Grey Sage today! And funnily enough, that color just went on markdown today too. This is such a great basic cropped cotton tank; pairs perfectly with the high-rise of the Aligns and shows off just enough of your sports bra without being too revealing. $38 -> $29

In Movement 25″ in Plum Shadow: What a great Fall color. As usual, the model makes the 25″ inseam look so much shorter than it is on me! When I wear these, they fall right at the ankle and look like full-length pants rather than the 7/8 length they are intended to be. Everlux material is probably my third favorite material for pants (I’m too addicted to Nulu and Nulux; guess I like feeling naked). I will say the waistband on these is super supportive/comfortable and the sweat-wicking fabric dries much faster than you’d think given the hand-feel. $98 -> $69

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.
