The Perfect Bag for Daily Adventures // lululemon athletica

a strong desire to travel.
"a woman consumed by wanderlust"

Thanks to lululemon, I was lucky enough to satisfy my wanderlustiness, travelling to Marfa, Texas with an INCREDIBLE group of makers and shakers recently and I am still covered in goosebumps from the conversations, experiences, and connections. Upon arriving home, I wake up to a not-so-gentle knock on my front door to a too-cheery-for-7am Fedex man and he hands me this, a brand spankin' new Wanderlust diversity bag from lululemon athletica. It's like the Houston store manager just KNEW what I needed - I recently had an issue with a critter eating a hole through my favorite lululemon gym bag but we don't need to get into that here. Within minutes I had this beauty of a bag packed for a yoga class followed by some pool time and I'll be honest, the hang tag told me it was going to be big enough to hold everything I need yet small enough not to be a nuisance but I was still skeptical. It's smaller than my standard "duffel for the day" but somehow it holds everything. It must have some magical powers like Hermione Granger's purse or something (yes that was an HP reference). The pattern is perfect for summer and the deep shades of green mean it's going to transition into fall quite nicely. The fabric is waterproof and there are strategically sized pockets that I will use in an attempt to keep my bag organized. I am still waiting for the day when someone looks in my bag and thinks 'wow, she's really got her shit together'. I think this bag just might be the one to get me one step closer to my goal.

I wore my yoga outfit out of the house #duh (Align Crops + Black Swiftly tank *note, it took years for lululemon to be able to make a BLACK swiftly, so if you don't have one go get one, it's like owning a unicorn) so my post-class stuff is what made it's way into my new best friend - I mean bag: see la lista below.

What's in the bag?

Denim shorts are One Teaspoon - I have 4 pairs and I will honestly never buy another brand again. They are THE BEST denim shorts and they have a million styles so you're sure to find a fit you like.

The white bikini top (see below) is an off the shoulder number from Target. It's trendy, cute as hell and $25. You can't go wrong.

My headphones are Urbanears from Luke's Drug Mart in Calgary. They come in lots of great colors, you can also hit up this link for a couple of colors I'm coveting for fall or head to the Urbanears website directly to see all of the options!

The gorgeous mala is from my equally as gorgeous mom. You can find the details on my previous blog post.

Sunscreen is an SPF 50 spray from Shiseido that doesn't cause any skin issue so I love it.

Always bring a bandana with you to wipe of the sweat, yes it's true, girls sweat. You can also use it as a cold compress of sorts, pop it in icy water and then lay it across your chest, tie it around your neck, whatever you need.

PS Marfa post coming soon!
