More Chilly Chill Puffy Vest, Awesoma Henley, Flip Your Dog Onesie

Are you tired of seeing lots of Chilly Chill Puffy Vests? I hope not because I'm not. I'm having trouble deciding on what color to keep. I was able to score a White/Inky Floral size 10 (the last in my size) at the Robson Lululemon which is the only store that has all the colors, so right now its between Inkwell and Ghost, or possibly the Black/Gigham although that would require hunting down again and I don't think I have the energy. 

Incidentally, the new Robson St. location is now so much more convenient. I used to avoid going there because the parking was pretty much only crowded meter street parking (try parallel parking downtown in a minivan). In the summer I'd sometime walk there from my Dr.'s appointments which where maybe a mile away but that was a treck with kids. The new location has a big parkcade 1/3 of the block down and it cost me $3 which wasn't too bad. 

Awesoma Henley

Flip Your Dog Onesie
This one is weird. I had to inspect it in store to see how the top attaches and it only attaches in the back. 

Herringbone Wunder Under Pants

The latest Herringbone Wunder Under Pants (due to upload on Tuesday), with the Chilly Chill Puffy Vest

Purple Fog 105F Singlet, Heathered Coal Inspire Crops, Bumble Berry Traveling Yogini Rucksack

Pretty 'Purple Fog' 105F Singlet 
I love this one but had to return it today along with a few other things to make room for the Chilly Chill Puffy Vest. Hopefully this doesn't sell out and I can get it later next month.

Traveling Yogini Rucksack in Bumble Berry

Crossfit WOD

I've been terrible at keeping up with this post but today I wore something a little 'flashy' that got some compliments at the box so I thought I'd share. Green Bean 105F Singlet, white energy bra, roll down wunder Under crops. 

After the warmup today (bunch of running drills) we did one armed dumbell snatches which are harder at a lower weight than regular snatches. I worked up to 35lbs and did 3 rounds of 8. 

The workout was DU/Snatch ascending ladder for  7 minutes:
20 Double Unders (or 40 Singles) and 1 Snatch @65lbs
20 Double Unders, 2 snatch
20 double unders, 3 snatch etc. etc.

I managed to just get in 7 rounds and at one point I had to run back and get a different jump rope because the one I got was slightly too short and I was getting calf pain from jumping up so high. I still don't have double unders (nor have I practiced them) so I did the 40 singles for the workout. Someday I'll care about double unders but for now I feel like its just a timing thing and I'd rather practice other skills.

Sneak Peek: Britt's Picks

Britt's Picks are up for the coming week and looky-looky! A Bumble Berry Cool Racerback Tank, definitely interested in that. Looks like all items are going to be uploaded to both US and Canada.  I'm liking the Flat Inky Floral Roll Down WU's and the Herringbone (too bad not Roll Down).

I wonder what jacket that is in the Om & Roam Untight Tight picture.
