Fit Review Friday! Athleta Haul- Outbound Tee, Urbanite Tank, Getaway Tee


Happy Friday! Ever since I landed on Monday, I've been eating my way through NYC. 😂 We're having a late Mother's Day dinner with the whole family tonight. Here are some food pics from this week. I had to get my dim sum fix asap! Dim sum is something I really miss about NY. It's good in Atlanta, but it's not great. New York definitely has some of the best dim sum. 

Egg tarts are my favorite pastry, it's so good when it comes out warm.

Soup dumplings! 😍

After all that, I needed to get my steps in. I'm planning on a few jogging sessions while I'm here. 😂

I've got an Athleta haul for you all today. Athleta often gives discounts and I ended up keeping a bunch of tops from their most recent sale. Let's get to the fit review! 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically size XS Petite in Athleta. I also wear size 4 in most Lululemon tops.

I absolutely love Athleta's Tawny Rose color and purchased the color in the Outbound Tee. This is a casual tee made of SuPima Cotton. The fabric feels very soft and smooth to the touch. It also has a little bit of stretch to it. The reviews mostly said this tee ran small, so I purchased this in a size up, small petite. 

This is a semi-fitted tee for casual days. I've even worn this to the office with a blazer or cardigan over it for a more polished look. The fabric is a light to medium weight and hits at low hip. I will be reaching for this top quite often.

When I saw the Urbanite Tank, I knew it would become one of my favorite tops. I love it so much I purchased it in black. I'm wearing my usual XS Petite and it is true to size. It's a light weight tank that feels very smooth and crisp. The Bright White is slightly sheer, but I've had no issues wearing it to the office with a sweater wrap or cardigan over it. This simple tank elevates any outfit.

Very nice drape from the back.

Here are examples of how I've worn this to the office. If you're not a fan of cardigans or wraps without a collar, this is the perfect solution! Since it's a tank, there are no sleeves to deal with and it's so comfortable. I highly recommend this piece, it's definitely become a staple in my closet.

Urbanite Tank Black Size XS Petite

Here are some photos in black. If I were to pick just one, I would probably go with the Bright White, but if you're worried about the white being slightly sheer, then I would say go for black. 

The arm opening is the perfect size. It's not too low and the coverage is great for hiding bra straps. My shoulders tend to slope down and my bra straps are always falling off which is why you can see a slip of it in these pics. This relaxed tank would also look great paired with leggings for a casual day out.

Here's another outfit I put together for my office job. The cardigan here is very old. It's about 10 years old from J.Crew. It's super soft and has held up so well. Luckily J.Crew always has cashmere cardigans in stock all year round. I highly recommend getting one!

Searching for a simple lightweight tee in white always marks the start of summer for me. White is always very difficult for me to keep clean, so every year I look for a white tee to replace my previous one. Athleta has some really nice tees that are lightweight, soft and comfortable. The Getaway Tee checks all the boxes for me. 

I'm wearing size XS and the fit is relaxed. I didn't want to size down to the XXS because I wanted it to fit similar to the model. Definitely size down if you want a more fitted look. The fabric is thin, which means it's slightly sheer. Overall, I'm very pleased with this Athleta haul, especially since I was able to snag them all on sale for 20% off.

That's it for me! Hope you all have an amazing weekend!



  1. Thanks for another great review, Leslie! I’ve been thinking of trying the Getaway Tee and your review is really helpful. Just need to wait for another sale! :)

    I’ve been distracted by the On The Fly Pant cos it’s my favorite LLL pant. :). I so wanted to get it in the same Heather Grey color but for some reason this color fitted bigger than other colors, and didn’t work for me. My three pairs of OTF all fit differently and one pair had a more straight rather than tapered leg.

    I hope LLL will bring back the OTF but I have a feeling that they will make some not-so-nice changes to the original design!

    Have a nice weekend in NYC and enjoy the good food!


    1. Hi Andrea! Athleta seems to like giving out 20% off coupons. I saw one come over in my emails, code is MAYATHLETA. Maybe give that one a try? Minimum amount has to be $150 though.

      Yessss the OTF is my favorite! I wear it all the time and wish Lulu would bring it back. I still have 3 pairs that get rotated for work.

      Still have 5 days to go in NY. Will be eating as much as I can take lol!

    2. THANK YOU, Leslie! The code works!!! Really appreciate it! :). Athleta is nicer to US customers!

    3. YAY! Glad it worked for you, I will pass along any other codes that I get!

  2. Hi Leslie! Your dimsum pics are making me hungry! Steamed rice rolls (cheung fun) are one of my favourites!

    I really like the Urbanite Tanks and the Getaway Tee on you! I like that the arm holes of the Urbanite Tank are not too big. And I love all the different looks you created with this tank--very versatile. The slight boatneck of the Getaway Tee looks flattering and comfortable. The fabric drapes well and doesn't look too sheer.

    Thank you for the great reviews! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Hi Karen! Hai cheung is one of my favorites. =D Sometimes I order two of them!

      Thanks! I am quite pleased with this Athleta haul. I'd say out of the three, the Urbanite Tank is the winner.

  3. That cropped cardigan is the perfect length on you! The food looks amazing!! I got a rulu 1/2 zip pullover second hand and it should arrive today! I wanted heathered raceway grey but mine is Canyon Orange. I hope I like that color!

    1. Thanks Janessa! I do love J.Crew, they have some really nice cardis and sweaters.

      Ohhhh Canyon Orange is close to Allbirds Buoyant Orange!

    2. Noo the package was delayed but I'll get it soon! OMG I looked up All Birds color and saw they have sandals! I want to try a pair of their sugar slides!

    3. Is there a link you have so I can give you credit/referral for allbirds?

    4. Yes I have a link you can use for Allbirds. If you click on the link and add a pair of Trino socks, you can get the socks for free. I'm not sure if there's a minimum requirement, but it's worth a try! My sister got a pair of the Sugar Slides and they're really comfortable. I'm actually thinking of getting a pair for myself too!

      Thanks for your support!! =D

    5. Yay I just got my first pair of allbirds for myself... though not a sneaker for now haha! And I got a pair of wheat crew socks! :D Yay thank you too!!

    6. Awesome! Let me know how you like the slides.

Review! Everywhere Belt Bag

Update! 5/2/2022 Read my comparison review of the Everywhere Belt Bag Extended Strap versus the original release. Happy Mother's Day to all those who celebrate it. Even fur moms deserve a little something on this holiday. I usually go back to New York for Mother's Day and this is the first year that I haven't been able to do so because of the pandemic. I did FaceTime my mom and grandma today, it's always nice to be able to "see" them. It's so much better than just talking on the phone.  Today I have a review of what I like to call my pandemic bag. I haven't used one of my high end designer bags since this whole thing began a couple of months ago. I am just a little concerned with everything coming in and out of the house these days and prefer to use something I can easily wipe down or throw in the washing machine. Which is why I purchased Lululemon's Everywhere Belt Bag .  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 on a good day. I'm usuall

Review! Lululemon Double Strap Face Mask

  Update- I have an another review for the Ear Loop Face Mask  version. Hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend. I have tons of reviews coming up, but first I need to cover the Lululemon Double Strap Face Mask. It's currently sold out, but I do expect them to restock at some point.  Before we get into it, let's take a look at the mask by itself.  First of all, this is a not a medical-grade mask and has only a single layer. There is no pocket for a filter, and it's not lined. The material feels like my In Alignment bra  to be honest. It's very soft and pliable. Instead of ear loops, which is what I've grown accustomed to for all my masks, this one has a double strap that you adjust to your head. They're very similar to adjustable bra straps.   The inside has a very thick seam running down the middle of the mask along with a nose piece. There is no wire for the nose. By the way, I bought two masks, one for me and one for my husband. It's too small for my husb

Fit Review! Aritzia TNA Super Puff Shorty & The Little Fuzzy Puff

  Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend! I loved doing nothing for a few days. I got to relax and spent quality time with my furkids and husband. I also took a ton of photos - so I guess not all of it was doing nothing! This year I wanted to replace a few of my winter jackets. It took me a long time to find new coats but I think I finally found two winners! Both jackets are TNA - which stands for Talula National Athletics which is a Aritzia clothing brand. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops. Here I am trying on size small and XS in TNA/Aritzia. This is the first time I'm trying this brand. The Little Fuzzy Puff  Stone Taupe Size Small What drew me to the Little Fuzzy Puff is the inside fleece lining. It is super soft and cozy. The fleece lining is only on the hood and body of the jacket. This jacket is water resistant and wind resistant. It's also very light weight and packable. The fabric on the outside is very soft, similar to the
