Fit Review Friday! Moments Like These Tank, The Everyday Skirt, Easy Going Hoodie

May 9, 2019



Happy Friday everyone! Just a heads up- I'll be in New York all of next week, so my posts may be a bit erratic. I did end up placing an ordering from Athleta as they had another markdown today. I have a pair of Wander Slim Straight Crops coming my way. They might be something I can wear to work for summer. The Athleta sale is definitely worth checking out!

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms unless otherwise noted.


I was drawn to the graphite purple in the Moments Like These Tank from the instant I saw it uploaded. I am a fan of cupro because of how soft it is and the way it drapes. I found this tank to run true to size. The body of the tank is shapeless and billowy and the length is quite long. I do think this tank would look best tucked into a skirt or shorts for summer. Would also look great with jeans for fall. I think it would make a fantastic layering piece. This tank did arrive completely wrinkled out of the bag and I'm hoping I can get rid of the wrinkles after I wash and wear it. My other cupro tank did not have any wrinkling when it arrived so this is definitely careless packaging from Lululemon. Very unfortunate!

This tank goes well with a racerback bra which I recently bought from ThirdLove.


Next up I ordered The Everyday Skirt to try. I knew going in, this skirt would most likely be too long on my petite frame and of course I was right. I have zero skirts in my closet because of this!


I didn't find the smocking of the waistband to be flattering. It made my waist look wider and I also have hips so it really didn't do me any favors. I will say the skirt was comfortable and sometimes that is all that matters when it is brutally hot. Although, since it is black, maybe not so much, a lighter color would probably be best for summer. I also purchased this in the size 6 based on the reviews and I found the waistband to be comfortable. I didn't order my normal size 4 to compare, but since the 6 felt fine, I would have kept the size 6 if I liked it enough to keep. I think this skirt would look best on someone with a boyish figure and longer legs.


I always ask my husband for his opinion on purchases and he actually really liked this outfit on me. However, I showed it to my BFF and she said she thought the outfit looked frumpy and we had a good laugh about making #FrumpFashion a thing. What do you think of this outfit? Yay or Nay?


Last, we have the Easy Going Hoodie which just got uploaded to WMTM for $69. I returned this because I paid full price and didn't think it was worth $98. For $69, I would say while it's still on the expensive side, it's much easier to swallow.


I purchased this in a size 2, and I would say it's a size down item. The fit is very generous since the arm holes are huge. I loved the soft cotton textured feel of the fabric. It is medium weight and felt very cozy on. I think it is something that would be great to wear post workout. I did find the hood to be a little heavy and it would drag the neckline back and I felt like it was lightly choking me. 


I liked the kangaroo pockets a lot though!


Out of this haul, I ended up keeping the Moments Like These Tank  I do not have a tank like that for summer and I just love the graphite purple. If the black ever ends up on WMTM I would purchase that as well. Speaking of WMTM, Scuba Hoodie in Heathered Mink Berry is on sale for $79 and Catch A Moment Zip Hoodie is on sale for $89. If anyone has this hoodie, let me know what you think of it!

That's all for me this week, have a great weekend everybody!

  1. I think the tank and skirt outfit looks cute on you, even if the skirt is a little long. However, it just doesn't look like your "style", at least as you show on this blog.

  2. The skirt is super cute but maybe with a more fitted top or a top that tucks in better. The tank drapes really pretty! The sleeveless hoodie doesn't seem very unique to me. A lot of brands do the drop armhole hoodie.
