i wonder how many dudes just clicked "mark as read" on their blog feed when they saw "fashion finds"?
i've been getting awfully workout-focused on this here blog lately, so thought i'd inject a little flair (for the ladies...all the ladies...louder now...).
i popped by lululemon last night to buy a gift and ended up with a little treat for myself. i told myself i wasn't going to buy anything for myself and i lost that battle. but, its always a WIN when fashion meets function. and it's only one thing.
i have here the Totally-Tote-Tastic-Tote (that's what they named it, not me. i swear).
how could i say, "no"? it can be a beach bag, a gym bag, and its TOTALLY REVERSIBLE INTO NEOPRENE. (the crappy phone camera doesn't show the cute little lululemon "om"s embossed into the neoprene.
did you hear me? c'mon. it's $68 and easily justifiable since i know i've spent way more on a transition bag with too much going on (you know those bags that have a sleeve inside a pocket inside a pocket? they'd be great for a drug dealer, but as a triathlete sometimes i need to get the body glide out in hot second when the porto-potty line was too long and i am t-minus 3 minutes late for my swim wave). the tote does have glide pockets, but easy access on the outside (or inside depending which way you have it i guess).
but i digress. this bag has ANOTHER use. remember, it's neoprene inside, so fully washable and perfect to carry this:
you like her new t-shirt? it says "summer of love". since its been 60 degrees (farenheit, i don't speak canadian) and rainy here for a week i'm trying every avenue possible to channel some summer lovin'. and yes, i am turning into "that" dog owner.
so....doggie bag or wetsuit bag?
i'm thinking wetsuit bag so as to promote more open water swimming ...sort of like my best friend who used to keep all her "good" fancy shampoo (the bumble & bumble) and products in her gym bag and only allowed herself to use them at the gym as a reward for getting her butt there.
ok, swam 4500yds this morning, went to pure barre, washed the dog, did (or am doing laundry) and am now running out of excuses to delay my tempo run (9 miles with 3 at half ironman race pace). better get out there, i suppose! have a fabulous friday!
