Dip Dye Houndstooth Wunder Under Pant, Pique Think Fast Pullovers, and More

The new High Times Textured Stripe Pant in Black/Deep Coal. Shown with the Capilano Stripe Black White Free to Be Wild bra. I really love the pairing of these two stripe patterns.

lululemon think fast pullover
The Mini Check Pique White/ Heathered Slate Think Fast Pullover. I tried this on in the store today and really liked it. I returned the Ultra Violet Flurry Fighter Pullover (I decided I only need to own one of these in my climate and kept the black one) and got this but will keep the tags on until the black mini check pique Think Fast comes out. I already have the Think Fast Hoodie (took the tags off this weekend and really like) in the White/Slate and a Turn Around LS in a nearly identical color so don't really need three tops in the same color. There is also a finite amount of cozy tops that I can use.

lululemon parallel stripe speed tights
The Black Parallel Stripe Think Fast Hoodie and matching Parallel Stripe Speed Tights. Not loving the matchy matchiness of this combo.

Photos of the new Manifesto Daily Practice LS. I'm not sure which Vinyasa she has on in the last photo. I think it's the Ultra Violet Pique one but it's not as dark as that in real life. I have an older version of this in white called the Fresh Manifesto LS and, surprisingly, it's turned out to be one of the handiest tops I own. I often use it to layer over a Cool Racerback when I have to travel on a plane in the summer or when I'm going to be out all day and the night is a lot cooler than the daytime. The white lets the color or pattern of my CRB show through and it adds just the right amount of warmth. 

lululemon think fast tank
The rulu Think Fast Tank in Om Stripe Silver Spoon Multi. I did not like this at all on me. My chest is too big for it and it made the armpits gape at the top of my breasts. The First Base Tanks work a lot better for me.


herringbone comparisons
The Brown Giant Herringbone Wunder Under pant compared to my black Giant Herringbone Speed Tights. You can see the WUPs are definitely brown. However, the difference is very subtle between the two and I didn't feel the need to get them. As lots of people have reported the brown herringbone WUPS run very snug. 

On a side note, I wore these Speed Tights for a quick two mile run today and really liked them. I found them super comfortable and they didn't slip at all.  I love the thigh pocket - it was very handy for my phone and I didn't notice it at all in there - no jostling around or anything. They were a bit hot since it was in the low/mid sixties but I wanted to give them a try. The material is stretchier than fullux, so more comfortable, but a bit thicker than regular luxtreme. I read an online review where someone said they found them scratchy on their skin but I wore them nearly all day and found them very comfortable. I'm thinking I might want to wear them for one of my upcoming January races.

Have the herringbone WUPs shown up on the website yet? I can't find them anywhere - maybe they sold through?

LLA, did you have a problem with sweat showing through on your grey houndstooth speeds? I really like them but I'm afraid I'll look like I wet my pants once I start sweating in them? Thank you for all your awesome work!
