I hope this blog post finds you well.
It’s time for another edition of “Friday Favorites,” in which we forget about everything we’re supposed to be doing and just ramble about fluff for a few minutes.
I’d say I’m eager for the end of the workday, but I’ll be working the weekend, so it will all just flow together. The good thing is, Dave and I have social engagements planned for Friday and Saturday nights. It will be nice to have a few moments of fun time, since I’ve been go-go-go for the past couple of weeks.
Now let’s get to the favs …
My favorite sweatshirt and Dave’s too
True story: I didn’t know what Lululemon was until I moved to San Francisco. I’d heard the name thrown around, but I couldn’t recognize the logo or the style. Fast forward to today, when I’m completely surrounded by it. Both by passing the stores and by seeing the clothing.
In fact, when you walk around Equinox, nearly all of the men and women are fully decked out in Lululemon, which is just referred to as “Lulu” of course. It’s pretty chic stuff, and the stores are cool too.
The company started in Vancouver in a shared yoga studio, and today many of the stores host local yoga events for the community. I love that Lulu is backed by a mission of “Creating components for people to live longer, healthier, fun lives.”
But Lululemon isn’t for everyone. As much as I like it, I only have two Lululemon items, and that’s because it’s darn expensive. Although I’d like to suit up in full Lulu attire too, I just can’t wrap my head around the prices of some fairly simple stuff.
When it comes to gifts though …
For Christmas, Dave bought me a Lululemon jacket that didn’t quite fit me, so I exchanged it for the Scuba Hoodie, shown below. This hoodie is still available in the Scuba Hoodie II form, and there are tons of cute colors and patterns. It’s thick, comfortable and it just feels great on. I always get compliments when I wear it.
For our second anniversary, (which is the cotton anniversary, in case you were wondering), I bought Dave a blue-and-grey-striped Lululemon hoodie. He’s worn it no less than 10 times since then, so I think he likes it. It’s super soft. And it’s casual enough to be part of a workout ensemble, but cool enough to be worn as street-clothes. It’s the Rival Hoodie, and it’s still in stores.
How cute are those two sweatshirts together? We really should take a picture of us both in them. Stay tuned for that.
No, but seriously, I have no reason to recommend Lululemon to you, especially since it’s so expensive. But those are some high-quality hoodies up there. Trust me on this one.
And that’s that, friends. I’m writing this late on Thursday night, and will be at work early on Friday. I check my tablet between clients, so if you’re feeling friendly, send me some love in the comments to say hi.
