Fit Review Friday! Athleta Down to Town Sweatshirt

Happy Friday everyone!  My parents are coming to visit me for the weekend.  I am hoping to get to a Lulu store tomorrow morning before I pick my parents up.  Will the Align Crop in alberta lake come home with me?  We shall see!   So the first time I saw this sweatshirt/hoodie/jacket on Athleta's website, I was pretty obsessed with it.  I went to the store and tried on the charcoal gray version .  They didn't have the black at the store in my size so I went home and ordered it.  I had rewards from my Banana Republic card so I got it for $98 + tax.  Not a bad deal.   For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon Define Jackets.  For Athleta I'm usually a XXS sometimes XS in tops.   Down To Town Sweatshirt For this jacket I decided to go with the XXS.  The fit is definitely slim.  I won't be wearing more than a t-shirt underneath this.  The fit is a little snug in the armpit for me, but I decided to deal with it.  If you

I've been eyeing this Down to Town Sweatshirt jacket from Athleta for a while.  I wanted to see which color I preferred in person and if I was a XXS or XS, sometimes I'm in-between the two in Athleta. Down To Town Sweatshirt in Shadow Grey Size XXS This jacket is very slim cut.  It was fine for me throughout the body.  When zipped up it was just a smidge tight in the armpit area for me.  Not quite enough for me to size up unless I wanted to wear sweaters underneath.  A little trivia about me, I only wear t-shirts even in the winter.  I own maybe 3 long sleeve shirts and no sweaters at

Athleta Wish List!

It's already October and fall is in full swing in the northeast already.  While it's not quite as chilly yet down in the south, I'm still looking at fall pieces to add to my wardrobe.  Here's my top 10 from Athleta.  If you're new to Atleta, use my referral link to receive $15 off your $100 purchase. I'm super curious about this, it's like a sweatshirt and down jacket with a hoodie.  The back looks more like a regular hoodie, while the front almost looks like a down vest layered over a sweatshirt.  It's kind of an interesting mix.  This comes in two colors, gray and black. Down To Town Sweatshirt I don't know why, but I'm already drawn to purple tights.  These look super pretty and the perfect medium dark purple color.  The best thing is they also come in petite sizes!  Hooray!   High Rise Quest Chaturanga to Town Tight If you're obsessed with wine colored bags like I am, this tote definitely caught my eye.  I can't
