What I did: I had some appointments in the morning and really didn't feel like going to the gym afterwards on Memorial Day! But I did anyways because I have OCD. And also I wanted to wear my new pants. =) I did my lower body workout, followed by my 30 minutes of cardio!
What I wore: Lululemon swiftly racerback in paisley angel wing, with Lorna Jane Lustre bra in sparkle fluro orange. Splits59 Nova Capri tights in red! Nike Free 3.0s in gray/crimson. I know, this was a lot of orange! Hehe.
So I thought the sparkle orange bra would go really well with the metallic orange mesh on the leggings - but the damn bra bled onto my tank!! Ugh. This was the first time anything from Lorna Jane bled on me. I had worn and washed this bra already so that was rather unexpected. I only started soaking the tank in Oxyclean today - hope it comes out. :(
What I did: I did my tricep and shoulder weight session.
I kept the same color theme going for work lol. I wore the Express Slub Knit Two pocket shirt in bright salmon, with Ann Taylor icicle tweed pencil skirt and Ella Moss Evelyn wedge pumps.
I love these shoes - they are super comfy and I get compliments on them all the time!
What I did: It was my glute/back/bi day, which I think is the toughest day of the week!
What I wore: New Splits59 Ashby tank in navy (even though photo makes it look black), with Lululemon Wunder Under crops in milky way, and Nike Free Bionics.
White Lululemon Swiftly LS as to and from:
Thursday 5/29 - Rest day!
What I did: Lower body again.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Adrianna tank in jewel, with Lorna Jane Portia bra under it. Lululemon Pace Crop in fun baseball print (this is what they will forever be known as lol), and purple Nike Free Bionics.
Lorna Jane Willow LS Mesh Knit top as to and from:
What I did: Upper body supersets, followed by 45 minutes of cardio. Since it was only my second cardio session of the week, I decided to lengthen it a bit.
By the way, the swim material of this tank dries amazingly fast! I was pretty soaked from my 45 minutes of cardio and the tank dried within like 5 minutes afterwards! Very airy and lightweight - love it!!!
Last night happened to be date night! So I got to wear my new H&M lace skirt! I wanted to keep it simple, so I wore this old Express drape neck burnout tee in dark teal on top. The burnout is actually a snake print! But it's very subtle so whatev. Snake + lace is kind of unexpected. I wanted to keep it neutral down below, so I wore the Sam Edelman Novato slingbacks.
I used my Rebecca Minkoff Leo crossbody bag for the first time too and loved it! I think it's so pretty and the colorful print definitely pops!
What I did: Well it was supposed to be rest day, but I was also supposed to catch up on cardio sessions. I didn't really feel like going to spin class like I had originally wanted to. So I took a yoga class instead. I did sweat in yoga lol.
What I wore: Lululemon Hot Class tank in chirp with Beyond Yoga Gathered Legging in nutmeg. I wore my Zigi Kickin wedge sneakers as to and from.
After I put on my Beyond Yoga leggings, I realized how well low-rise leggings can work. These just have the most perfect fit. The rise is lower than all my Lululemon leggings, but they don't cut in on the sides or slide down at all. Just super comfortable and flattering! Lululemon should take note when they try to make low rise pants - the newest Run A Marathon II crop is a total fail.
After yoga, I went to return said crops to Lululemon. I put on something casual to do my shopping in - this old button down shirt I got from Greece (?) when I went there a couple years ago, with Express reversible denim skirt (the other side is camo!), and Madden Girl Coasterr wedges that I surprisingly like a lot - pretty comfortable for walking all day too!
I also broke my teapot yesterday, so I went to the newest Teavana store in Beverly Hills to look for a new one. That location has been open for about 2 weeks, and it's a "tea bar" store that Starbucks is starting to open up! If you didn't know, Starbucks bought Teavana in 2012. This place was like a Starbucks for tea based drinks. Like hot and iced teas, tea lattes, tea cocktails (not alcoholic), etc. They also had little sandwiches and snacks to go along with tea. I thought it was pretty cute, since I love tea! So even though I didn't find a teapot I liked, I got some yummy drinks. If you are interested in how the place looks, here's an article with pictures. They take Starbucks reward cards too! This totally works for me. I hope they open more locations.
