Sunday Funday!

Wow I've had such a hectic weekend!  My mom came in town this weekend since she had some appointments in the area, and just now left.  I always get nothing done when people are here even if I don't really need to entertain them.  So I didn't get around to blogging until now!

So without further ado, here we go!

Monday 1/16
What I did:  Pilates class

What I wore:  Lululemon Cool Racerback in black embossed manifesto, with caribe Not So Deep V bra underneath.  And coal Groove pants.  And aruba Method Sock (not pictured).

Tuesday 1/17 - Rest day

Wednesday 1/18
What I did:  Lift weights at the gym.  Same as the last couple weeks, I continued doing the stage 1 of my workout program, workout A.

What I wore:  Lululemon Power Y tank in Three Print, and black Groove pants, with my New Balance Minimus Road shoes.

Thursday 1/19
What I did:  Work B of my weights program.

What I wore:  Lululemon Light Up tank in pig pink, and black denim slub Astro Wunder Under crop.  I wore my New Balance shoes again.

I think I wear these shoes during the week mostly because of how light they are even though they are not very good for weight lifting (no support). Since I carry my workout gear with me (in my LV bag) to work, I like to keep it as light as possible!

So I really like these textured tights from Lulu, since they look pretty decent with boots.  Not like workout wear at all.  I thought I'd take a pic of what they look like with boots over:

Here I am wearing my Michael Kors Fleur boots and a peacoat, and my free scarf from Victoria's Secret that I love.  It was below 60s, so very cold for me!

Friday 1/20 - Rest day

Saturday 1/21
What I did:  Interval workout with my husband.  I sprinted so hard on the treadmill, that I was wiped out after like 30 minutes!

What I wore:  Lululemon Cool Racerback in static very violet, with bright blue Flow Y bra under.  And heathered black / dewberry astro wunder under crops.  I wore my Nike Frees in blue glow, to tie in the bra!

I love wearing bright colors to workout.  I just can't bring myself to wear black and gray tops that often.  In fact, I sold all my black workout tops recently, even my Deep Breath tank that has tinted canvas print on it because I just don't wear black enough.

I wore my plum Turn Around LS and Seychelles True Story boots as to/from (I had to go run errands afterwards).  Yep yep, always using my LV bag as a purse/gym bag nowadays, it's great!

Sunday 1/22
What I did:  Circuit workout with my husband, we did like 15 different workout stations with lots of sprints and hills on the treadmill.  I had to workout hard to counteract the yummy food my mom made all weekend.

What I wore:  Lululemon Cool Racerback in aruba, with Chirp Flow Y bra under.  On the bottom I wore my coal/chirp Team Spirit crop.  And I wore my Adidas Adizero Adios 2 shoes that I love.  These shoes are really lightweight, but the support is amazing so I like to wear them when I know I'll be doing stuff like squads and lunges.

See, colorful again.  Lol.  Hey, I was born in the 80s!

As to/from, I wore my snorkel blue Ambition Pullover, and my Bear Paw boots.  The pull strings of this pullover is a lighter blue, kind of similar to aruba so I like wearing them together!

Alright, so that's about it for this week!  I have been happy with my workout routine lately, but I keep thinking to myself that I need to do yoga again.  The way my schedule works now I do not have time to take yoga classes.  It's such a shame because I can totally feel the difference in my body!  I am definitely tighter now.  Grrrrr... maybe I need to workout 6 days a week instead.


  1. I love the snorkel blue Ambition Pullover with the pull light blue!!

  2. We must have very similar tastes! I have every lulu outfit that you posted--except the ambition pullover :) Too funny! Even the old manifesto CRB and caribe deep v bra and the 3 print power y :) Love your blog!!

    1. Wow... Serious? That's wild! Great minds must think alike. LOL!

  3. Love your blog too! I am wondering what textured tight you are wearing in the photo above. I just bought the will pant in denim from lulu and can't decide if I should keep them. They are flattering and feel like compression tights but I am worried that the string will make it feel lumpy. I went back in and tried the denim wonder under but still thought the will pant was more flattering.

    1. I haven't tried the will pant... I was referring to my denim tights. I love the texture!

  4. I don't know why, but I LOVE seeing how other people put together workout outfits! I don't care that much about regular fashion, but gym fashion makes me happy :) I also love seeing the combinations of vintage Lulu that you put together :) These Sunday Funday posts make me happy.

    You're also making me wish I had gotten the Ambition pullover in snorkel instead of passion!

    1. Haha thanks!! That's so cute. I used to have a passion ambition pullover too but returned it for the snorkel one instead. I love it! Kinda wish I also kept the passion one...

  5. Love your blog! Can you please answer a question for me? I am wanting to purchase some groove pants (well, trying to decide between them and the recognition or tadasana ones actually) and am wondering if you have experienced pilling problems with yours? The reviews are so negative that I'm unsure if it would be a smart purchase. I'm also curious of why it's only the grooves that are experiencing the negative feedback and not the recognition or tadasana pants, considering that they are all made of luon. Thanks for your help :)

    1. Hi there! I don't really understand that either. I love my groove pants. Never have issues with any luon pants actually. Sure the inner thigh area feels a little rougher after a bit of wear but it's not noticeable at all and I wouldn't call it pilling. Maybe people are comparing to older luon. I have some older groove pants and crops that are softer, and thicker (like more dense kind of knit) and dont feel as rough in the inner thigh area even after all this time. So if you are used to that then I can see the negative reviews about newer ones. I don't really care though, I just love the fit.

    2. Oh yeah I tried on some tadasana pants and the luon feels the same as grooves. Those pants just fit more snug and have a narrower opening than grooves. Cute but I still prefer my grooves! Never tried the recognition pant. =)

  6. Thanks for your input! I agree....the fit of the Groove pants are amazing. I wouldn't mind trying the Tadasana pants for running though (since the Grooves can be a bit floppy for that). As far as the Recognition pants, they seem like the exact fit of the Tadasana with the exception of a cinchable waistband right? I've never tried the Wunder Unders or any tight fitting crop tight lulu sells but I may have to rethink that. They look awesome of you :)

    1. Thanks! I actually didn't buy any tights for a while when I first started shopping at Lululemon. Now I love them since they are really nice to workout in as there are so extra fabric and the compression is great too. So I'd definitely recommend you trying some! I find crops better to run in than grooves. Luxtreme is my fav fabric for running.
