If you are a Lululemon fan, there’s always that one color combo or pattern that you need to collect. This pattern is like my Pokemon. #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 loved it.

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

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

  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!

    • 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!
