Fit Review Friday! Athleta Sculptek Skinny Jean + What's New

Happy Friday everyone! I can't believe it's already September. I'm looking forward to the long weekend. For those not in the US the first weekend in September is Labor Day weekend. September for me marks the beginning of fall and this means I'll be breaking out my cute fall clothes. Today I have for you Athleta's Sculptek Skinny Jean in dark wash.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and wear a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms. In Athleta this translates to PXS or 2 petite.

I haven't bought a new pair of jeans in probably over a year. Honestly, I do not wear jeans because I just don't find them as comfortable as a pair of leggings. Seriously, nothing can beat the comfort of a pair of Align bottoms. When I saw Athleta's new Sculptek Jeans I decided to bite the bullet and try a pair. I ordered size 2P. The length on these is 27.5 inches. Since I'm only 4 feet 11, my inseam is 26 inches. I do have to cuff these or deal with a scrunched up bottom even though these are supposed to be ankle length. 

The waist sits right underneath my belly button. The material is stretchy and does not feel constricting like some other pairs of jeans I have. I really like the dark wash. As of right now it looks like the petite sizing is sold out on Athleta's website in dark wash, but they do have another pair that was just released in grey wash. All sizes are currently available. The website states they are online only with limited quantities.

There are three pockets in the front and two back pockets. The denim is midweight and super stretchy. If I'm going to wear a pair of jeans, these are pretty darn comfy. Athleta scores again! Definitely a keeper! I can't wait to break these out once it gets a little chillier in Atlanta. 


In other news, there are lots of new items on Athleta's website. Here are my picks!

(Okay so this isn't exactly new, I have this from last year and LOVE IT so much. Now it is being offered in petite sizes and I'm tempted to buy it in PXS just to see if I can possibly love it even more. Yes I know I'm a little crazy. If you want to check out my review of it here, please do!)

(I absolutely love this color and will be ordering this to try.) 

(I think I might need these too.) 

(If I had $350 laying around I would give these a shot)

(Definitely want to order this, I could wear this to work!)

(I'm really tempted to order this to try!)

(Good alternative to the $350 leather version)

(This is being offered in petite so I may  give this a try, I'm a sucker for pink)

My shopping ban ends in an hour and I'll be placing a few orders from Athleta and Lululemon. I apologize I have not had that many reviews up this month, but we'll be back to regular programming soon! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!

  1. Happy Friday from Canada! The jeans are super cute on you!

  2. YAY FALL!! Thanks for the jeans review - they look good! By go to for work is black jeggings + blouse/button up shirt. Can't wait to read your reviews from your Athleta and Lululemon haul!

    1. I wish I could wear jeggings to work, but I have to look a bit dressier since I'm the receptionist. Bah. It's not bad though, today I wore leggings since it was a half day!

  3. Hello! I ran across your blog because I was searching for pictures of Athleta's Luxe Stronger Hoodie in Oatmeal Heather (which I did end up buying today, thanks to your pictures and review.)
    On a completely different note, can I ask what color walls you have? (brand and color, if you don't mind.) Love them!

    1. Hi there!

      That's a great purchase! I love that hoodie so much and hope you do too! As for the color of the walls, it was there when we purchased the condo. However, I don't recommend this brand- it is Sherwood Williams - Agreeable Gray. The paint is flat and is hard to clean if it gets dirty. But maybe you can find something similar in a better brand in eggshell finish.
