Lululemon - My Favorite Things

 


Dressing for Success 


    

 "Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman" Coco Chanel


On a wintery day in the Pacific Northwest, I thought I would write about my favorite athletic wear - Lululemon.   I wear Lululemon 365 days a year.  Yes, I do!  Why you ask? Because the apparel is created of the highest quality fabrics, in an array of beautiful colors, styles and designs, super comfortable and made of dry-fit or sweat-wicking material.  They never pill, washes well, and keeps for years. Furthermore, these numbers remind me daily to work out and get moving! More importantly, Lululemon makes you look and feel great.  As Billy Crystal once said on SNL, "It is more important to look good than to feel good. "You look marvelous."  

My Daily Routine


  

"The joy of dressing is an art." John Galliano

When I wake up in the morning, I slip into a pair of Lululemon leggings, top and sweatshirt.  You will never find me wearing pajamas all day or even for an hour or two.  Instead, I eagerly get dressed for a new page to begin. It is just as important as making your bed in the morning in order to jump start your day with an accomplishment.    After all, my motto is "dress for success."  

If I am planning on playing tennis a few hours later, I switch into my favorite tennis apparel (future article) and out the door I go.  When I return home, I shower and reach for jeans and cashmere sweaters which are comfy and always classic.  You will never find me in Lululemon all day or in the evening.  I believe in dressing up a bit, putting my makeup on even if it is late in the day.  Makes me feel good, look polished and self-confident.   However, every morning begins with Lululemon

But First - Some Inspiration 


"Spread love wherever you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."  Mother Teresa

Before I ramble on about my favorite Lululemon pieces, I thought I would take a moment for a few words and share inspiration and love.  We all had a difficult 2020. My hope is that we can come together, spread cheer, and calm the turbulent seas in 2021. What we have lived through, what we have witnessed, what we have endured has been heartbreaking and gut wrenching.  Recently we were stunned to our knees.  We were shocked, livid, saddened for the loss of life and appalled. Yet, we continue to carry on with grace. 

What have we learned?  We have learned that family and true friends are everything.  We have learned that helping another person is the essence of human existence. We learned that connection was and is paramount.  The human condition is beautiful tapestry and finding peace, hope and love is the essence of everyone's life. 


Family & Friends 


"There are friends, there is family, and then there are friends that become family." 

Surrounding yourself with family and friends during the darkest days brings contentment to our lives.    The constant calls, texts and video chats help soothe the soul and refresh our energy.  Without, this element of connection we are lost. Additionally, I believe we are turning the corner and the new year will bring much joy and happiness to everyone.

While you are at it, make Lululemon your "go to" athletic wear.  You will not be disappointed. 


“Carry on beauties.  Enjoy your life. Embrace it. Spread love, joy, hope and peace.   Smile.  Make life memorable." 


Until Next Time,

Kim

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
