You're probably starting to realize by now how much I love colors. It's no secret that I've always been a huge fan of any and all shades of pink (I can do a whole load of just pink laundry and I wouldn't exactly be disappointed if I accidentally slipped some pink in with the whites and all my whites turned pink, too). But I'm also loving the fun shades of greens and blue/greens that have started to pop up everywhere, especially this mint color (or "Toothpaste" as this shirt is called). So for today's Favorite Finds, I'm celebrating these two vibrant colors. Don't worry, if pink and/or mint aren't your thing, there are plenty of other choices!
lululemon Power Y Tank in Toothpaste
Obsessed. I don't think I need to go on any more about how spectacular this color is, so I'll go on about the tank itself. I have 2 more of these "Power Y" tanks in other colors because they are my favorite. The production is solid: the material is soft but sturdy and the top is comfortable enough to wear all day. The straps are also really comfortable and they don't pull on my neck like some of the other yoga tops I have. I find the cut very flattering on the upper arms/torso, too! The only potential issue is the level of support; it's listed under the "light support" for good reason. I've never had an issue with the top, but I do find myself glancing down after a few rounds of jump backs and jump ups to ensure that, um, the ladies are not popping out. So if you've got a little more going on up top, you may want to add a sports bra underneath. Either way, I think you'll love it.
Also want this and this (on sale-woohoo!).
Glyder Mantra Crop Legging in Mojave Dusk Space Dye
These crops are SO soft. They also stay put without cutting off circulation or creating a muffin top look. The yoga studio I practice and teach at (Tranquil Space) recently just got a new shipment of these Mantra Crop leggings, and I seriously had to stop myself from buying up every pair. I've washed them a bunch, too, and they still look just as new as when I got them last summer. No see-through issues, either, which is a necessity in my opinion, though I bet you'd agree.
Also crushing on these and these (on sale!)
lululemon Bang Buster Headband
I am normally not a fan of headbands. Well, I take that back. I LOVE headbands and how they look on others, but I HATE wearing them because I almost always get a headache. Whether it's a fashion headband or an athletic one, I can almost always guarantee that my head will be throbbing within an hour of putting it on. But I found this one on sale one day and it was so stinking cute that I just had to try it out. And let me tell you what: I am so happy with this purchase. It doesn't have those little grip things, but it still somehow doesn't slide off during practice, no matter how many times I look up or down or circle my neck. Must buy.
Also love this and this.
Target Yoga Direct Yoga Mat in pink (comparable)
The mat pictured above is my very first yoga mat, ever. I bought it in 2007 in Williamsburg at the local Target, I think for $12.99 at the time. I don't think the company that made it even exists anymore, but the one I've included in the link is the most comparable mat I can find (aside for the price increase - thanks for that, Inflation!). If you're just starting to explore yoga, no need to spend heaps of cash on a mat because this one will do just fine. It'll give you the cushion you need and it's not too heavy or slippery. I still use this mat during my home practice at times and it still works just fine! Yet another Target win.
