Fit Review Friday! Athleta Essential Tank and Seasoft Mid Rise Straight Crop Plus WMTM Update

Happy Friday! There's a big Athleta sale happening this weekend. Lots of items are on markdown and there's an extra 10% off coupon available for Gap Inc card holders. I am in love with Athleta's Essential Tank that's on sale for $24.50. I am about to pick up another in black.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and wear size PXS in Athleta tops and bottoms. I also wear size 4 in Lululemon.

Extra 10% off with Gap Inc Credit Card - Code CARD10.

Essential Tank Granite Blue Size XS (on sale)


I've been looking for summer tanks that I can layer underneath a cardigan at work and also something I can throw on the weekends. I love a double duty top. Athleta's Essential Tank is super petite friendly. The cut is not too low in the neckline, it skims over the body and the length is perfection! I'm wearing size XS and it hits at the high hip. Not too long and not too short. 


Granite Blue is gorgeous and it's my new favorite tank. Already wore it out casually and to the office. It's very versatile. During the last sale I purchased this tank in Abalone Gray along with another pair of Seasoft Mid Rise Straight Crop in black. 


Abalone Gray is a light beige color with gray undertones. I think it's a fantastic neutral and will literally go with anything. This tank looks great tucked in or untucked. It's cut straight across at the hem. I definitely need this in black.

I also purchased my second pair of Seasoft Mid Rise Straight Crop. I wear these to the office all the time and needed a second pair while one is in the hamper. I am wearing the regular length in size XS and it is full length on me. I really wish Athleta would release these in more colors.Would love this in a graphite gray!

That's it for me! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and happy shopping!

  2. Hi Leslie,
    Granite Blue is gorgeous and I hope Athleta will release more items in this color.

    I love my Seasoft Mid Rise Straight Leg Crops. Got them in regular fit cos the rise is kind of short, giving me cameltoes. I must say they are a tad long for crops and wish they were long enough to be worn as pants for me. I really would love a couple pair of straight leg pants in buttery soft Seasoft material.

    1. Hi Andrea! Agree, Granite Blue is one of my favorite Athleta colors. Hope they release a hoodie and Seasoft pant in it.

      I am surprised Athleta doesn't have a full length version of the Seasoft Pants. =(
      Have you tried Lululemon's Softstreme version? The crotch may be a better fit for you.

    2. Hi Leslie, I don't like the seam running down the back of the legs on the LLL softstreme version. I prefer the simple design of the Seasoft Crops. :)

    3. Gotcha, I guess since I don't see or feel the seam, I never think about it. But I understand.

  3. Both Essential Tanks look so cute with the Seasoft pants! How is the Abalone color for sheerness? It looks pretty decent in your photos. I really love that color!

    1. Hi Lola! Good question, I forgot to mention it is not sheer at all in the Abalone Gray. The fabric is medium weight, and very opaque.

  4. The tank is perfection on you! I got the LLL pleated skirt is mis priced! It is $88 in my local store and was $78 online now it’s $68 so I got it in black!

    2. Hi Janessa! I always love how LLL's skirts look, but I never reach for them... Glad you got it for a good price!

  5. Cute tank top on you! Perfect length and nice color. I was wondering if it's possible for you to do a fit review on the Athleta Jet Set bomber and Run with it Jacket. Thank you so much.....Cindy

We tried HelloFresh for the past two months - Here's our review

Hi everyone! This post is written by my husband. Some of you may know he does all the cooking around here. 😅 We noticed we were spending a lot of money on food and eating out every month and wanted to see if a meal kit service would save us money and time. After looking at a few meal kit services we settled on HelloFresh. Without further ado, here's Jared's review. (Original post date Aug 2022). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As you may have seen from Leslie's Instagram stories for the past 2 months, we've been using HelloFresh for most of our meals. The main drivers for this were to better track what we eat and because on the advice of my doctor, I should be eating more home cooked meals. Before I go any further, it should be noted that my original career path was in culinary arts, but twists and turns in life changed that. So I do have formal cooking experience. A little background story. Over the years, I've developed

Review! Lululemon's Large Everywhere Belt Bag Size Comparison Plus Video!

  Happy Friday! I can't believe it's almost Halloween! I actually have a dentist appointment on Halloween. One of my molars chipped and needs to be filled in. It's a tiny chip that I didn't even notice until my dentist pointed it out to me during my last visit. I'm not looking forward to it at all since I will need local anesthesia. Anyway, today I have a belt bag size comparison review for you all! For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically wear size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms.

Review! Everywhere Belt Bag Extended Strap VS Everywhere Belt Bag Original

  Happy May! Can't believe summer is right around the corner. I'm looking forward to visiting my family later this month. It's been nearly a year since I've been back to NYC. I'm already thinking about all the dim sum I'm going to cram in the 10 days I'm there! 😆  Today I have a review of the new  Everywhere Belt Bag Extended Strap  compared to the original  Everywhere Belt Bag  that is slowly being phased out. 😢  **** Update - The original Everywhere Belt Bag has been phased out completely.
