Daily Covet: Lululemon Run Skirts, I can’t get enough

Lululemon.  It’s true what they say about you.

My sons bought me a run skirt from Lululemon for mother’s day.  While I’ve worn it to golf and to walk (and maybe just to hang out in), I hadn’t yet used it to run, which is precisely why I wanted it in the first place.  I wanted something cooler than pants, but didn’t want the underneath shorts to ride up – shocker! there’s not space between my inner thighs.

Tonight I ran over three miles in the little skirt that could, and I’m hooked.  I want more and sadly, my lululemon store here stocks like 4 pieces and they are sold out online in every size but like 0 and 2!

I guess I’ll just have to visit Lululemon.com EVERY day until I find another skirt that is as utterly fantastic as the Pace Setter Skirt… and one that makes my butt look as good (so my husband has said!)

Trina Turk at Banana Republic

Trina Turk at Banana Republic (June 7) is one of the most exciting things I’ve heard this spring, as far as fashion goes.

I adore Trina Turk’s prints and bright colors for spring and especially summer.  And now these styles are a little more affordable at Banana Republic.  While I vowed not to shop at BR anymore because of their awful customer service here in my city, y’all can fill your closet with contemporary, poppy prints at BR!

Here is the complete lookbook.

Style Sleuth

Bloomers aren’t just for toddlers.

A good friend and I often spend a few minutes outside preschool every morning after dropping off our 5YOs.  The content of the conversation varies, but often times it’s about fashion, products or DIY.

A few times, another friend’s little girl has run from dropping off her older sister, in the cutest chambray bloomers ever.  Friend #1 comments on them every time.

So when I ran across these chambray bloomers for “big girls,” I couldn’t wait to send them to her.  And they were 1/2 off that day with a code from Lucky Magazine.  I convinced her that they would be awesome over bikini bottoms for the pool, or for playing in the back yard with her kiddos.  And after all, she does have great legs!

Get Into the Stripes of Things

There is notshortage of stripes this spring.

You will find them on throw pillows, dresses, wedge sandals, iphone cases and pretty much anything else you can think of.  So because I love them, and because there are so many to be found, here is a little bundling of some stripes I tracked down.  (Complete shopping info via Polyvore.com too.)

Daily Covet: Short on shorts

I need shorts.  It’s been hot here and my season of shorts, skirts and sundresses has commenced.

In a quick pick through my summer wardrobe, currently housed in roughneck tubs in my basement, there was a stunning lack of shorts.  And while shorts aren’t my favorite summer items, they are a necessary part of almost anyone’s summer wardrobe.

Since you can find shorts in any length, style and color from J. Crew this summer, it is probably my choice for a one-stop-short-shopping experience.
