Fit Review Friday! Athleta Haul! Release Tee, Brooklyn Jogger, Farallon Print Sweatshirt, Om Wrap in Powervita



Happy Friday! I'm going to get my first Pfizer shot today. I'm glad I scheduled it on a Friday in case I get any body aches or feel feverish I have the weekend to recover. I'm planning on wearing a tank top and a light hoodie. It'll be 80 degrees when I go. It's at a giant stadium. I bet it'll feel surreal. 

Today I have the second part of my Athleta haul up for review. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 0P, XXS, XS in Athleta. For Lululemon I'm usually a size 4 in tops and bottoms. 



When I first felt the Release Tee in my hands I was very surprised at how soft it was. It's made out of modal/polyester but it feels like linen. It's very thin and lightweight, which is perfect for Atlanta's summer heat. It's super oversized. I'm wearing size XXS and I'm still swimming in it. It drapes very nicely and looks flattering. I love the look of it with the front casually tucked in and the back long. The color Metropolis Gray is a very pretty steel blue. I decided to keep  this tee. I think I'll get a lot of use out of it. It does run large so I would recommend sizing down at least one size. It's also a bit sheer, but when it's hot, who cares, right? 



I am pairing this with Brooklyn Joggers in Mountain Olive.

Two pockets in the front and two pockets in the back.


I've been meaning to try these joggers for a long time. I kept putting them off because I didn't see a color I really liked. The Mountain Olive color reminds me of gray sage. It's a beautiful green/gray. I normally don't love green, but when I saw these in person I knew they were keepers. The one thing Athleta has on Lululemon are petite sizes. I have not found a pair of Lululemon joggers to fit my short legs. The Brooklyn Joggers measure 25.5 inches in length and they work well enough. If they were an inch shorter I think it would have been perfect but I realize I am on the shorter end of the spectrum. These are mid rise and the fit is casual. I'm wearing size 0P and the waist fits perfectly. I would like to see Athleta expand their petite sizing to add 00P /000P for those who may be sized out. The fabric is Featherweight Stretch and is very thin. These are perfect when the weather is still a little too cool to wear shorts, but too warm to wear your fleece joggers. I wore these out a few times already and love them. Looking forward to seeing these offered in more colors. 



This is one of the few items I received that I didn't love. The Farallon Print Sweatshirt is made of organic cotton/spandex. This is definitely a heavier cotton, it's soft but feels substantial. I am wearing size XS. The body is boxy which I didn't find too flattering on me. I could have went down a size to XXS but I prefer the more relaxed fit these days. I do think the print would have looked better in the Black Olive Camo

I also didn't love the seams that run down the length of the sleeve.


The back shows a wide band that is not on the front which is also why I think this looks better in the Black Olive Camo. It's more subtly in the darker color. This also comes in solid colors as well. Cypress green and black.



This Om Wrap in Powervita is really interesting. It doubles up as a vest! I can't tell you how many times I would take my scarf off because I would get too hot around my neck and wouldn't know what to do with it. Now I can throw it on like a vest! The armholes aren't very big, so it's best if you have average sized arms. The Powervita fabric is super soft, it reminds me of Align fabric. Very buttery and drapes nicely. The snaps are similar to the Vinyasa scarf, but the quality of the snaps could definitely be better. Overall, I definitely am keeping this one and have my eye on the pretty flora mauve color.

  2. I like the release tee and the om wrap (reminded me of Lulu's AYT with the back seams). Good luck with the shot! Make sure that you stay hydrated.

    1. Thanks Andrea! I got my first shot. Wasn't bad, but the arm is a little sore. Hopefully that's all it is.

  4. I like the release tee on you-looks so comfy. The Om wrap is a good idea, but the arm holes would bother me.

    Good luck with the Pfizer shot. I had my first moderna shot yesterday. My arm (shot area) was pretty sore the next day. I even rubbed it out right after the injection, but it was still sore. Difficult to raise my arm. I also had ‘brain fog’ and a headache for 24hrs. Most people I talked to said they had no problems after the first shot. So I was not expecting anything. Hopefully, my body will be less reactive with the second dose. Good luck.

    1. Thanks Sherry! So far my arm is a little sore. I hope it doesn't get worse tomorrow. I was very sleepy when I got home and took a 2 hour nap. =T

      Here's hoping your second shot is better!
