off the mat: i’m back!

Last January, I wore Wunder Unders for 31 days of street and sweat. I had so much fun figuring out all the different ways I could wear my lululemon bottoms that it got me thinking: what if I applied it to other styles of lululemon pants? Thus, Off the Mat was born!

what is off the mat?

For the next four weeks, I'll show you how I wore the Still Pant, Astro Pant, Groove Pant and (of course) the Wunder Under Pant to the office and then repurposed for yoga or the gym.

Meet the pants I'll be wearing during Off the Mat:

1. groove pants

2. still pants

3. wunder under pants

I am so excited to read this! I work in a place were dress clothes are required, and I’ve often wished I could pull off something with pants and a blouse that could quickly be changed to a running outfit!!! If you find a way, I will follow!!! What a great idea!

YAY! I love that this series is back. I learned so much after 31 days of Wunder Unders that I bought a pair and I too found a way to wear them at work (and I work in an office where you where really nice dress clothes), out and everywhere that isn’t just the gym!

Can’t wait to read the rest. Made my day Lulu. Made my day to see this.

YEAH! Elim I loved your Wunder Under posts so much it inspired me to go out and get both the crop and regular styles! I’m so looking forward to your new outfits! I love the idea of remixing basic pieces from your wardrobe for work and then transitioning them to the gym! Can’t wait to see your outfits :)

YES! So excited, I was a frequent commenter last season. I actually asked you what color your Hunter rain boots were and I’ll be getting my own navy pair soon, hope you pair your boots with lulu again this season! I love new ideas. :)

Where is the ‘love’ button!!?
Looking forward to this Elim, you are a wardrobe muse for us all. Thanks for sharing this.

Can’t wait to see what you come up with! Especially for the Still Pant since I think they usually come off looking frumpy but you always look chic!
