Fit Review! Anthropologie- Cambridge Knit Blazer & The Essential Cropped Flare Pant

How is everyone doing? Due to the coronavirus, the entire company I work for is working from home this week as a "test week". Chances are we will probably have to continue working from home for a longer period of time. My husband is going stir crazy. Meanwhile I'm fine with staying indoors. It's like a staycation to me. 

This shopping excursion took place a couple of weekends ago when everything wasn't so scary out in the world. I went to Anthropologie for some new work clothes. I wanted to pick up a new blazer and a pair of pants. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size XS in Anthropologie. I'm usually a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. By the way, the lighting in Anthropologie was very dark and yellow, so the photos look a little too warm. I tried to adjust some of them. Some came out okay, others are still too warm like the one below.

I was really surprised at how much I liked this blazer. The fabric is a very cozy knit. Very soft and super comfortable. The size XS is a tad big on me, but I feel like it still looks professional. I love the way it fits and the patch pockets are a plus. The color is green, but it really looks gray to me. 

The Essential Cropped Flare Pant are perfect for petites. I'm wearing size XS and the length is perfect with my booties. The length is 27 inches long. This is a pull on style that is very comfortable. The only caveat is no pockets at all. The plaid motif and the leg lengthening seam that runs down the pant is very flattering. They're also currently on sale! I can already tell these will be a favorite of mine and will get worn a lot. 

 Something random- I saw this sign and really got a good laugh.

In other news, Lululemon announced they are shutting their doors until March 27th. I think the entire world should just go on a mandatory shut down for two weeks and just get it over with. I hope things return to normal soon, but I have a feeling things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. 

I've been getting a lot of emails from all the brands I shopped at in the past. I understand they are trying to build brand loyalty with these emails. I always read them and see if they are going to compensate their workers during the time the stores are closed. So far I've seen this from Rothy's, Allbirds, Anthropologie, and Lululemon. Makes me love these brands even more. 

I will do my best to keep my blog up during this time. I like having some sort of normalcy in my life. I hope you're all staying indoors and being good! Stay safe everyone. 


  1. I prefer cabin fever over stir crazy.

  2. Those pants look good! Stay safe <3

  3. I love the whole outfit on you! Very chic indeed! I don’t usually like double breasted jacket but this one looks amazing. Love the color and texture, and it does look very cozy.

    Not a big fan of patterned pants but this pair looks amazing on you. Very flattering and makes you look taller! :D

    1. Thank you! Back in the day I used to only shop at Anthro. They used to post new items up for sale on Tuesdays, I think and I would check every week!

  4. Cute outfit! I like a lot of what Anthropologie carries.
