Fit Review Friday! Athleta Retroplush Sweatshirt, Triumph Jogger, Balance Sweatshirt, Balance Jogger

  Happy Friday! I can't believe October is over in a couple of days. 😱 How is 2021 almost over? It boggles my mind. I only know what day of the week it is because of my fit review schedule and weekly Lululemon drops. Otherwise every day would be a blur.  Today I have my last Athleta fit review (for now). For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically wear size XXS/PXS in Athleta. I also wear size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. Retroplush Sweatshirt Charcoal Heather Size PXS I'm wearing size PXS in this hoodie and it has a loose fit but still petite friendly. It does look a little bit on the bulky side probably because it is lined with fleece. There are side slits and the asymmetrical zipper adds a little bit of flare to an otherwise basic hoodie.  The back skims over the body quite nicely. The front just looks a little bit off, I can't really put my finger on it. I think the body does flare out a little too much for my liking. Not too crazy about the bell sha

Fit Review Friday! Athleta Balance Jogger, Balance Sweatshirt, Organic Daily Camo Crew, Friends & Family Sale Starts Today!

Happy Friday! Athleta is having their Friends & Family sale right now until March 8th. It's card members only. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size PXS or XXS/XS in Athleta. I'm also a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. Balance Jogger Toasted Brown Heather Size PXXS I really love the Balance Sweatshirt , which I've reviewed  a couple of months ago, and decided I needed to try the matching jogger. The length of this jogger is 26.5 inches long on size PXXS and the cuffs measure 4 inches wide. They are not baggy at all and quite flattering. I was soooo close to keeping these, but I personally am not a fan of the wide waistband. To be honest I'm a little spoiled by the Vuori joggers . The Balance joggers feel super soft and very cozy on the inside, but that waistband is not for me. It's very wide and fairly snug on the waist. It's also fitted throughout the hip. The length is perfect for petites! Next up, I've had my eye on t

Fit Review! Athleta Cozy Sherpa Reversible Jacket, Balance Sweatshirt, Balance Pullover

  Since there was no upload yesterday and Christmas falls on Friday, I've bumped up this week's Fit Review Friday to Wednesday. 😁 Normally I would also write up a Christmas wishlist, but this year I kind of feel like I have everything I need, and I really don't want anything except to be able to see my friends and family again in NYC. I also want everyone to stay safe and healthy until we can all gather again.  So with that I'll continue on with my usual review. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size XXS/XS/PXS in Athleta. I'm also a size 4 in Lululemon tops.  Cozy Sherpa Reversible Jacket Navy XXS Last year I reviewed this jacket and passed on it. The cut was just slightly too boxy and wide, but I did like it. This year it looks like Athleta updated the fit and it is now less boxy and I do find it to be more flattering. It's also very petite friendly! I purchased this during their Black Friday sale and have worn it quite often already. I prefer
