Lulu Lemon

Within the last year and a half I have become obsessed with Lululemon, and that might be an understatement. I didn't even know what Lulu was before moving to Seattle, but I learned real quick after seeing it everywhere. Plus, all of my friends in Crossfit live and die by this workout designer, and it didn't take long for me to jump on the bandwagon for cute workout and casual attire. I thought it was all overpriced until I started shopping at the fabulous outlet, bought a few too many items, and now it's just history!!

Not only did I drive 45 minutes to get to the outlet, but I have spent the last hour going back and forth with these amazing hoodies below being indecisive on which one to purchase. Trust me, I would LOVE to buy them all, and it doesn't help that my amazing husband tells me to buy at least two even after he knows how much they cost. I wish he wasn't supportive of my shopping (weird right?) because it means I have to hold myself accountable.





I was a good girl and left with only one needed hoodie and a fun sports bra ..... Seattle has definitely cooled down to chilly evenings and my new gear will get some much needed use!

*** Thanks Verizon for handy picture text messaging!!!  Here is how the convo went like after sending my bestie in Texas all of these pictures ....

-Abby: Umm, do you workout in long sleeve stuff??

-Me: Ohhhh yes and wear it out on friday nights, too! This stuff is ridiculously cool here.

-Abby: Interesting

I don't think she is sold on it! Although, she was interested when I told her it keeps her "swass" from showing!!  Are there any Lulu lovers out there???

Abbie said...

I've never heard of Lulu Lemon before! Really cute stuff though! And you're right about one thing, if I had adorable work out gear like that, I'd definitely be wearing it out on Friday nights too!!

Thanks for sharing!

♥Aubrey said...

I can honestly say i've never even heard of it! I live in my North Face gear during our cool winter months :) I think the green is a pretty color. Hope you had fun shopping. Enjoy the rest of your weekend hun.

Abby Kreck said...

I just cracked up laughing!!!!! Thanks for the shout out :)
I do love them though!! And maybe Id buy them if I had your rockin bod :) smooch smooch xoxo

Arrie said...

I like the first and the third one. Which one did you get? If you come visit me I have a lulu store .2 seconds from the house!

Lindsay said...

ooo those are so cute!!!!

Carol said...

I love lululemon too but haven't made it up to the outlet yet! p.s. how amazing was that game yesterday!!

Elle said...

Lots of Canadians where I live and they love their Lulu. A friend of mine is opening a yoga studio/Lulu shop soon. I really love karma and it's priced a bit better than tonic or Lululemon. I also love pink lotus. I've been quite lazy of late though, so haven't been purchasing much :( I can see why it's popular in Seattle. Cute stuff! I love the first one. :)

Teresa said...

Okay Kelsey...I am going to have to click over and check out that sportswear! It looks too cute on you! So you guys on the EASTSIDE must really deck out if people in your Crossfit classes are wearing such stylish-hip things to workout! Which one did you get. Greg does me the same way about supporting my shopping habits...and I have to resist...especially now that I am not working. My big weakness is BODEN! Check out their coats...oh me! Do you get my responses to your comments on my blog? I hope so. Happy Night!

Tatiana said...

I have never heard of it, but they look really cute! The green one is my favorite :-) And your husband encourages your hobby??? Well, I guess you've got yourself a keeper lucky lady! You guys are cute :-)

Kelly said...

i LOVE lululemon!!! such cute stuff!!!

and all those hoodies are of course darling. good picks, girl!

Michelle said...

girl, i second abby (although she does as well)...i'd be buying it if i had a rockin body like yours!

love all your posts on so many fun topics!

~KS said...

Yeah... I don't work out as much as I should (I blame it on the obscene amount of reading we have to do...) but I love wearing comfy clothes to class. I think all of this would qualify!! And I might look a bit cuter than I do in my sweat pants and baggy sweatshirts!

whitney said...

I found you tonight and loved your blog...and of course loved that you were from Texas! Yay for new blog friends :)

Marian said...

I wish we had these on the East Coast. Love. It. I'm def one of those girls that will try to wear my workout girl out on Friday night...and then again Saturday morning;)

Big fan of the 3rd one. Which one did you pick?

xoxoxo

Classy Fab Sarah said...

We don't have any good Lulu stuff in the midwest.... so so depressing, especially after I see how long those hoodies are! Now I am dying to find the closest outlet...

Brittany and Charlie-Social Butterfly said...

I have never heard of it but I love the first one:)

Jenn said...

I've never heard of that store :(
I must check it out! All those are super cute, which one did you get?

Brittany Ann said...

I love love love Lulu! I drive two hours to get to my closest one! And it's well worth it! I wear about 10 different workout ensembles every week for my job (between all the sweaty changes) so I've worn my fair share of workout wear! And Lulu is. the. best!

Rachel said...

I've never heard of this place! Cute stuff, though :)

the tichenor family said...

These hoodies are ADORABLE! I want every one of them. Which one did you choose?!!

Allyson said...

I see why it was a hard decision! I love them all too!

A girl's gotta have cute workout gear. I'm right there with ya!

Katie said...

the 2nd one down is my favorite...and you are so lucky your husband supports your shopping habit...mine_totally_doesnt. ha.

Elizabeth said...

So cute! Love them! Hope your weekend went well!

MissJody said...

Very cute..I would have a hard time picking just one...I'm bad at that.

Brown Girl said...

I love there stuff although it's quite pricey, would love to find an outlet here for it the only one I know of is in the Galleria.

landlocked bride said...

I love Lululemon, but it doesn't love my wallet!

Jax said...

SO CUTE! I think I need one of those-I can justify buying pretttty much anything. I convince myself I'd work out more with cuter workout clothes. Yeah. You look adorable in all of them! Which one did you decide on?

Jacci said...

Ummm, LuLuLemon OUTLET? I have never heard of such a thing!! There's one right across from the only Anthropolgie in Houston down here and I was planning on going to both stores tomorrow...I really only wanted the 10 dollar reusable bag, but now I might reconsider...those hoodies are so, so cute!

kass09 said...

So this stuff is So cute! I would have had such a tough time cause they are all equally cute. With getting more and shape and after loosing all the weight its SO much fun to shop for cute workout clothes, I LOVE it! I just might have to check this stuff out myself! Thanks for sharing!

Cee said...

Cute stuff! I have never heard of Lulu before...however I don't buy much in workout wear haha

Sarah said...

I love love LULU too, but we don't have an outlet just the real store which like you said is completely overpriced

The Mrs. said...

I've never heard of it, but it looks cute! I'd probably NEVER wear long sleeve stuff in Florida though! :)

I've heard a lot about Crossfit... my brother is into it... I've never tried it. I've had success with my personal trainer though!

PinkSass said...

Love lululemon but it's a bit pricey. I always ask for it for my bday and xmas. DING!

High Heels and Huntin' Boots said...

I have not yet purchased any Lulu stuff, but my friend who was a buyer for a boutique in LA swore by it. It's way cute, though. What a great hubby you have! So which one did you pick?

katie + bret said...

so... were you trying to show us tops or your cute little figure?! Your figure... I knew it. Darn you!

haha, cute stuff!

Kristin said...

I've never heard of this brand. Just might inspire me to start working out harder. Ah ha

Annie said...

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I've not seen any in person, but it looks super cute! I love how long the tops are. Cute!

The New Black said...

I LOVE me some Lulu! I had NO idea that there was even an outlet. I was just thrilled that they finally started selling their stuff online! I will definitely check the outlet out!!

Ashley @ Ramirez Family said...

I love them, which one did you end up buying? You said you only bought one, but which one? I like the 3rd one the best I think...

Mrs. Potts said...

I've heard of it, but never found it. I tend to throw on workout clothes with a hooded sweatshirt on top.
Have you written posts about Crossfit before?

{lauryl} said...

I've never heard of Lulu, but those hoodies are supah-cute! They're really FLATTERING too, which is unusual for work-out clothes!
