Fit Review Friday! Athleta Girl Downplay Full Zip, Crazy Cozy Warm Up Hoodie

Happy Friday everyone! As a petite person, sometimes I will try on kids clothes. Most of the time it's not a good fit. My latest experience was amazing and makes me want to try on more kids clothes again!

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon tops. Size XXS or PXS in Athleta and size large in Athleta girls.

First, I loooove love love this hoodie. It fits like a glove. I really didn't think I would like the fit of girls clothing anymore, but Athleta has answered my hoodie prayers. It's lined with super soft french terry fabric. It feels like I'm petting my cats. It's not too tight anywhere and the sleeves actually are the right length for me. It's a miracle. I think I need to repeat that. The sleeves are the correct length on me! So this is a keeper. I can't say there's anything that I don't like. The color is a very soft pale pink with rose gold hardware. This actually reminds me a lot of Lululemon's coveted heathered bark berry Scuba but it's a much lighter and softer pink. 

This hits right at the hip, which means the back does not fully cover the bum. That's okay with me though, most of my jackets are long so this is actually a breath of fresh air. The hood fits nicely. There are thumbholes but since the sleeves are the correct length I don't find myself using the thumbholes at all. Overall I'm very pleased with this hoodie. It's also $78. Pricey for a girls hoodie? Yes, but a steal if you're an adult stuck in a petite body! 

Next up I am kinda obsessed with the color pink right now, so I wanted to also try on the girls version of their Responsible Down Jacket. I actually think the girls version fits me really nicely. Can you even tell it's for girls? 

The front panels on this jacket are insulated with 650-fill down. It's pretty warm when I wore it for these photos. The jacket is semi fitted with some room to layer. The sleeves are again the perfect length. My only slight complaint are the wrist cuffs. They feel a little bit on the stiff side and slightly cheap in quality. The two pockets have zippers which is nice. Should I keep the jacket? I can't seem to decide. Let me know what you think! 

That's all for me, I hope everyone has a great weekend! Sherlock says meow! He's getting bigger already. I can't believe we've had him for a month!
