I’ll be watching the game , Spain vs. Netherlands (ok, just the football players ) and eating Paella and sipping Sangria today. I’ll get to my Lululemon reporting later today if there is anything new and intersting. For now, i’ll let you know about yesterdays Lululemon hunting trip.
I’ve been on the lookout now for the Do it All shorts or the Seek the Peek shorts for the last 3 or so weeks as it’s gotten very hot in these parts. I had the chance to buy the Do it All shorts and decided I wouldn’t need them and I would just make do with crops. Ha, that’s always the way isn’t it. Now that I decide I need them and am willing to pay $68 for a pair of shorts there gone, save for the Potion Purple Seek the Peek which I would never wear. I went to two Lululemons yesterday and squeezed myself into a size 8 and decided that it was a no go. Frustrated I tried on the Flashback Shorts ($19!) which I would have loved if they were just a little longer -say, mid thigh. too short for me anyways. Tried on the tracker shorts and they looked odd on me and were a tidge too short. The Knock out shorts did weird things to my legs because they seemed to flare out quite a bit on me for some reason, maybe they were small. And then I tried on the Still Short in Static Charcoal. I LOVED Them! perfect length for fuller thighs, nice pockets and LOVED the static charcoal material. Very cool for hot weather. I got the 10 but I think the 8 would have worked fine in these because there pretty loose. The Static charcoal looks great with Pig Pink so I plan on wearing them today with my Pig Pink IJWR tank for World Cup celebrations. I think I even like these more than the Do it All shorts and I’m not sure why I hadn’t ever tried these on before. Maybe because I have the Still Pants (used for C-Section recovery) and I was worried they would look like just cutoffs of those pants and because the waist is so high it would look odd. The high waist in these eliminates any muffin top but if you don’t like it high you can fold it down.
