Happy Wednesday, Y’all!
I’ve got more Vuori picks for y’all today, so get excited!! Not only do I have several women’s pieces I’m going to highlight, but I’m also going to share some pieces for the men in your lives that would be PERFECT for Father’s Day.
But before I get to the outfits, I want to share a couple of reader comments I received after my first post with Vuori. From the feedback I received, it appears that the majority of my readers weren’t previously familiar with the brand. It also became obvious that those readers that were already familiar were also loyal fans. See what Carla and Jessica had to say:
I discovered their stuff about 6 months ago. I’m obsessed and have lots of their pieces. I visited their store in LaJolla, California about a month ago. I’m a Lululemon fan also but I do think Vuori is better and more day to day versatile. Even hipper than some of the dated looking Lululemon. Try the Ripstop pants. I don’t have a jumpsuit yet, but I think I need one. Joggers are the best I’ve ever worn. – Carla
I was influenced by an instagrammer I follow about a year ago and bought my first Vuori item. I was hesitant because it was more than I had ever spent on athletic wear, so I started with just the joggers. I now own 2 joggers and 4 other items, my husband owns 4 pieces, and my teenage daughter just bought her first pair of joggers with babysitting money. I find that if I’m at home and not wearing Vuori, I’m annoyed, and this is coming from a skeptic. I didn’t think it was going to live up to the hype, but I was wrong. We are officially a Vuori family, and we all want to add to our Vuori wardrobes, so I love that we all have GO TO gifts for awhile too. – Jessica
WELL. Carla and Jessica need to be brand ambassadors, don’t ya think?
From all of the e-mails and comments I received, I basically think there are two types of people in this world: Those that are OBSESSED with Vuori, and those that haven’t tried Vuori yet. 😉
Y’all know I’m a newbie to the brand, but I already know that I’m a lifer.
Their pieces make me happy.
The Halo Essential Hoodie is created from their softest performance DreamKnit™ fabric. And I’m here to tell you, the fabric lives up to it’s name. IT IS DREAMY. This hoodie is so soft and so comfy, but it’s also got great style. It’s a cropped fit with little side slits, but not cropped enough that even comes close to showing skin on me. It skims right at my hips, and I like that it’s not fitted, but it’s not at all baggy either. Just a subtle relaxed fit. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the hoodie. If you want a more relaxed fit, you could size up, but the arms might be too long.
This hoodie has over 1,100 reviews, and a great majority of them are 5 star.
The Halo Performance Short is the summer version of the joggers. First came the joggers, then came these shorts.
Also made of the DreamKnit ™ fabric, you won’t find a comfier pair of athletic shorts. They are super flattering and just look good. Even the little drawstring is cute. And do you see how the drawstrings match on the hoodie and the shorts? The cord is a subtle stripe, but it’s a great design detail. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the shorts.
This is a great set.
The hoodie comes in 7 colors and the shorts come in 7 color options as well. Some of them are a perfect match, and some of them just coordinate well with each other. As you’ll see in this post, it’s super easy to mix and match the pieces with each other.

Chris has never been one that wants to model on the blog (boo!), but I did order him a couple of tees and a couple pairs of shorts because I wanted his thoughts on some of the men’s line.
The Rise Tee is a pima cotton jersey that has a vintage and well-loved look. It claims to have a “modern athletic fit”, which I think means that it’s not boxy, but it’s not fitted either. Chris really likes the fit. He wasn’t sure about the front pocket at first, but I think it looks great on him, and he’s come around!
The Sunday Performance Short was created in response to the company fielding requests for a short version of their famous joggers. I actually ordered these for Chris after seeing a commercial for these particular shorts. They feature moisture wicking technology, an elastic waistband, a leg zip pocket, a back zip stash pocket, and a reflective logo. The leg zip pocket is Chris’s second favorite feature right behind the elastic waistband. Haha! What can I say, he shares my love of an elastic waistband. Ha! And with the leg zip pocket (seen below), he does love that he can stash his phone in his pocket and not worry about it falling out because it zips up.
The Strato Tech Tee utilizes moisture wicking technology and boasts UPF 30+. I love a shirt with sun protection built in! In addition to the wow factors just mentioned, it’s soooo soft and soooo comfortable, which are actually the only real features that Chris cares about. CHRIS LOVES THIS TEE. He’ll wear it around the house, he’ll wear it doing errands and running around town, and he’d even wear it to a casual date night. The reviews left on this tee are numerous and excellent, so it’s not just us that love it.
The Kore Short has an athletic fit and will fall just above the knee for most. It does have a boxer brief liner (which Chris is unsure about), but he likes the elastic waist with the drawstring and the quick-dry material. I can see how somebody that’s always at the gym would appreciate the liner, but Chris much prefers the Sunday Performance Short above.
MORE OUTFITS FOR US LADIES…
Now that we’ve covered gift ideas for dad, let’s get back to some more pieces that I’ve been living in lately.
My Vuori pieces are absolutely made for the ranch.
The Feather tee is my idea of a perfect athletic tee. It’s a lightweight organic cotton with a relaxed (but not boxy) fit. It’s great layered, and great worn on it’s own too. This is a tee that I would love to own in countless colors, but sadly it’s low in stock right now. I’ll be sure to let you know after it gets a restock. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the tee.
The Sunnyside Short is made with 100% organic cotton and they are super soft and “effortless”. I tell you, you put them on, and you will barely even realize that you are wearing pants. They are THAT comfy.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. However, if I order another color, I’m going to try the smalls. They are very forgiving in the waist, so I actually think a small might be better on me in these particular shorts.
I’m not kidding when I tell you that after we got home from the ranch, I washed this outfit and then proceeded to wear it for 2 more days in a row. I had a couple of computer days at home, and it was the perfect outfit for working at home, going on several dog walks, and running a couple of errands.
And I somehow missed the Sunnyside Hoodie when placing my order, but I feel like it will be my next Vuori purchase, even though we’re in the throws of summer over her. I pretty much need it to make a matching set for lounging at home.
Here I am wearing the tee again with the zip up hoodie you saw in my first post with the brand.
I paired them both with the grey shorts I highlighted in the first outfit in this post.
Yep, I can mix and match all day.
The Halo Performance Hoodie is the exact same fabric as the Performance Jogger. Again, so soft, so comfy, and the perfect lightweight fabric with some give. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the hoodie and the tee.
And the shorts are the same as in Outfit #1. I have a medium in these, and I like the fit.
As long as we’re doing this Vuori tribute, I thought I would go ahead and link my first post in case you missed it. Just head to the post if you want to know anything about the next two outfits.
And here are some more of my favorites for us ladies…
