Fit Review Friday! Athleta Review Part 1 Mindset Vest, Sculptek Skinny Jean

Happy Friday everyone! I have a pretty long Athleta review but I will be breaking them up in two parts. Today I'm going over the Mindset Vest and Sculptek Skinny Denim in quartz wash.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. In Athleta I'm usually a size PXS in tops and 2 Petite for bottoms.

This entire outfit is new except for the booties. The J.Crew Scoopneck Tencel Tee is super soft. I am wearing a size XXS and it's a loose fit. The scoop neck is a little low and it is very see through but for a casual summer outfit it works fine. The Mindset Vest is also very soft and runs large. The neckline is adjustable and you can style it differently if you wish. More on the vest in a little bit.

Outfit details:
J.Crew Scoopneck Tencel Tee - on sale! I'm wearing size XXS
Athleta Mindset Vest- $24.99 I'm wearing size PXS
Athleta Sculptek Skinny Jean- I'm wearing size 2P

The Sculptek Skinny Jean are seriously my new favorite pair of jeans. I've been looking for a new pair of gray denim and I've found the perfect one. Not only are they really flattering on my petite legs, they are comfortable and the length is just right with some booties or cuffed with sneakers for a more casual look.

When I took them out of the packaging they looked a little small, but there is a lot of stretch and will mold to your body. I find them true to size. These jeans fit like a glove. Did I also mention how soft they are? Buy these, you will not regret it!

The Mindset Vest is only $24.99 right now. For the price it's a steal. I really like the gray but the navy blue is also very pretty. I normally do not like vests, but I think this one works well as a layering piece during the summer. 

I'm wearing size XXS and it runs large. The neckline is very interesting as you can shorten and tighten it up for different looks. There are two pockets in the front to stash your phone. The asymmetrical hem line draws the eyes down and has a lovely drape. 

The back of the vest is plain compare to the front. The material is made of very soft fabric that does get wrinkled easily. I made the mistake of leaving it draped on top of my chair and it turned into a wrinkled mess overnight as you can see in this picture below.

Super wrinkly! 

That said, I still love it anyway. For $24.99 why not? I think this piece has a lot of potential for versatile looks. If you're new to Athleta, you can receive 20% off your first full price item with my referral link. I would definitely use it for the Sculptek Skinny Jean!

That's it for me! I'll have part 2 coming up Monday for you all. Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  3. That whole outfit is rockin', and looks amazing together! Do you know if they changed the fit of the jeans recently (I thought I saw something about that). In the spring I tried a pair in size 0 but it was way too big. I'm about the same size as you, so I was curious when I saw that you have a size 2P.

    1. They did update the fit. This color in particular is smaller than the pair I bought last year (also size 2P). The pair I bought last year is loose fitting on me. I kept it anyway because of comfort, but it's not the most flattering. This new pair is way more fitted.
