Fit Review Friday Athleta Mantra Capri + July 4th Sales!

Happy Friday everyone! This weekend for those of us in the US, celebrate 4th of July! I'm lucky enough that I get a four day weekend. 😁 Sarah, one of my readers convinced me to buy these Mantra Capri's from Athleta.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms. This translates to a size PXS for Athleta. Mantra Capri Abyss Size PXS These are made of Powervita fabric. These are high-rise, but I found the waist to sit right underneath my belly button. The waistband is comfortable. I found these to be light in compression. The mesh detail on the calves provide extra ventilation.  As you can see these fit me almost perfectly throughout and even on my thin calves. The length on these are 19.5 inches. I find these leggings to be very flattering on my petite frame. I also found these to be fully opaque in the bend test.   I also took a photo of the color next to my Lululemon Alberta Lake Align crops for c

The Best of Athleta Sale!

Lots of sales are happening right now. I'll be posting the best of the sales over the next few days. Tonight we have hundreds of new items on markdown on Athleta . I picked out my favorites and some  others that I think have potential. Sizes tend to go fast, so if there's something you might be interested in, I would get it. Athleta also guarantees a workout and if it doesn't perform, return it for free. They seriously have one of the best return policies ever and Lulu can learn a thing or two from it! Just sayin'.

The only thing I'm interested in tonight is the Chase Me Onsie. I don't know whether to order my usual size 4 or to size down in this. I also can't decide what color to get! One second I'm thinking black all the way, but the jaded color looks so nice too... decisions decisions. Did you get anything this week?

Dior So Real! Pink Havana

So I loved my first pair so much, I went back and ordered a second pair in pink havana. I think I love these even more! For those of you who bought a pair, do you love them? Let me know what you think! I can't find the pink ones anywhere right now, but I did find my silver ones on sale at Bloomingdales . Blue Black Mirror

Ugg Islay Review!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I just want to post a quick review on these Ugg sneakers I bought. These sneakers are not for working out, just casual walking. What I really like about these sneakers is you can fold over the high tops. I normally prefer them up, but I like that you have the option for scrunching these down.  I've worn these with shorts and leggings. Even though they're high tops, they do not make my legs look short. The key is to wear short shorts though! Ugg Islay Sneakers Fit is true to size. I normally wear size 5 in Ugg boots and I fit a size 5 in these. They can feel a little bit on the narrow side so if you do have wider feet I would go up half a size. I got them in the classic black but I was seriously close to ordering them in quartz which is a really pretty pink. I'm still tempted to order them. I do find these to be really comfortable for casual walking. I've walked in them all day without any discomfort. The outsid
