Fit Review Friday! Cates Tee, Adapted State Jogger, Wool Whenever Crew


Happy Friday! Are you guys done with your holiday shopping? I pretty much am. Shipping has slowed to a crawl as expected and I'm hoping everything arrives on time. Today I have a bunch of new reviews for you all. This is part one. Part two will be posted on Monday.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms.

Cates Tee Sublimado Pigment Dye Cadet Blue Size 4

The Cates Tee has always been on my radar but I never wanted to pay full price for a cotton tee - $48. Ouch, right? When this one hit WMTM for $29 I decided to give it a shot. I purchased my usual size 4. I like the casual boxy fit and the length hits right at the top of my hips. It's really not too short at all on my petite frame. I also bought this in the gray sage color as well. Interestingly enough, the gray sage feels much softer compared to the faded cadet blue. 

It's a very comfortable tee. The crew neck is generous and have no issues of it feeling tight. For $29, I still feel it's too high but at least I know I'll get use out of it. I really like the look, especially for summer as it is a very thin, light weight tee.

Next up, by special request I have the Adapted State Jogger in chambray. I'm wearing my usual size 4. I'm actually surprised the chambray is currently sold out. Makes no sense because to me, as this is a very spring color. I chose it because I figured it would photograph the best out of the colors available. 

Adapted State Jogger Chambray Size 4

My inseam measures 25 to 26 inches. I'm on the shorter end of the spectrum. The Adapted State Jogger measures 28 inches in the size 4. As you can see it is very bunchy at the bottom. The waistband is fairly tight on a size 4. There isn't that much stretch to it, which is surprising. Although, I didn't find it uncomfortable, so I would say it's true to size. Sizing up would definitely be too big. The waistband is also high rise and covers my belly button. 

There is a zippered pocket to keep your items safe guarded. There is also a zipper at the cuff. The fabric is soft and made of quick drying material. These are designed for running, which may explain the tight waistband? I would not consider these for lounging.

(I have the pant pulled up a little bit to show zipper detail.)

Last item for today is the Wool Whenever Crew in Savannah, also a fit request. I ordered my usual size 4, but I think I could have sized down in this top. The fit is quite boxy and slightly oversized. If you prefer this look stick to your usual size but I think this would have been more flattering in a size down. 

Wool Whenever Crew Savannah Size 4

(The zipper is a very long ribbon pull.)

There is a zipper on the back, which I didn't expect for this sweeter. This is a medium heavy sweater and it's also lined on the inside making this extra warm and thick. It's also very soft as well. This is a wool blend, fleece fabric. The length isn't too short on me either, I would say it hits around mid hip. It is slightly shorter in the front, longer in the back.

(Lined in soft cotton jersey.)

Full price is $128. I think this is a little steep and I do expect this to be marked down. I didn't find it very flattering, but it is a warm sweater. The savannah color is very festive for the holidays. That's it for me! Let me know what you think of these pieces. 

(Close up for texture.)

Have a great weekend!! 



  1. Oooh - thanks for the review of the jogger! I've been eyeing them in Regatta Blue, but the reviews didn't seem great. The cuff at the bottom reminds me of a cheap Walmart windsuit or something, too. I hope we get Regatta Blue Aligns.

    1. I'm just hoping for more holiday items but chances are slim at this point in time.

  2. Thanks for the review. What bottom were you pairing with the Wool Whenever Crew? Is the color Graphite Grey?

    1. Hah, it's actually black but because it's a close up the camera on my phone made it look lighter than it really is. But they're Werkshop!!! and I love them. They're my go to if I'm looking for a solid black. They don't pill which is a major plus.

    2. Lol! I get excited seeing anything grey! :D

  3. The Cates Tee looks flattering on you! Thanks for the review of the Adapted State jogger. It's definitely too long for petites!

    1. Thanks! I do like the fit of the Cates Tee, it's just a tad expensive for what it is. Agreed on the jogger. I have never found a pair from Lululemon that works for me.
