New Essential Tank in Dusty Mauve! Athleta Try Ons!

I managed to get myself to a super busy mall yesterday.  Stopped by Athleta and Lululemon to check out new items.  Looks like dusty mauve in the Essential Tank is hitting the US stores.  This tank runs big, so I sized down in this.

Essential Tank in Dusty Mauve Size 2

As of now they only have 4 colors on the website.  Maybe we will see dusty mauve uploaded this coming Tuesday.  

I think this color is super pretty.  So yep, I took it home with me.  

Next up, I went to Athleta to check out the Stronger Hoodie and Downabout Vest.

Stronger Hoodie in Grey Heather Space Dye Size XXS

I tried on the XXS but I think I would need to try this in the XS.  The chest and shoulders felt a little too tight for my tastes.  Surprisingly I think I prefer this hoodie in the darker charcoal color more.  

The inside of the hoodie is lined in fleece.  The fuzzy fleece, which I personally am not crazy about.  The fabric felt soft but not super soft.  It's a light to medium weight hoodie.  Definitely very fitted throughout.  

Interestingly enough, the XXS in the charcoal color fit a little looser.  The chest and arms fit much better on me.    

I also liked that it covers the bum area.  It's a cute hoodie and on my wish list.  Last thing I tried on was the Downabout Vest.  The color is super pretty and the zipper is a nice gold color that goes very well with the pink.  

Unfortunately the fit is all wrong on this vest.  The hole for your arms is super small.  I tried on the XXS and the XS and both fit really tight.  It also poofs out a lot so it wasn't slimming at all.  I couldn't wear it with a hoodie underneath.  No way.  I was so disappointed this is the only photo I took.  LOL.

I hope everyone has having a great weekend so far!
