My Favorite lululemon Pattern + Color Combo: Slalom Green Bean & Inkwell

If you are a lululemon fan, there’s always that one color combo or pattern that you need to get all the pieces for. #gottacatchemall

My obsession is the Slalom Green Bean and Inkwell combo from lululemon circa 2013.

It came out when I first moved to Seattle towards the end of 2013. I looked at it and it reminded me of everything I liked about Seattle; the rain, the Evergreen trees, the dreary and cold winters. I absolutely love it.

I’ve collected enough pieces to be proud of my current collection. <3 Here’s a peek at my fave pieces.

  1. I love this color scheme too! I’m just starting to collect different items though. I only have the speed shorts, sports bra and the Asana jacket. So hard to find!

    1. It’s slowly getting harder to find! I have so-many-pieces in this color scheme. I barely wear them because I don’t want to ruin them. On, the pain of owning your unicorns! I will tuxedo up and add a photo to this post!
