Fit Review- J.Crew Ribbed Cotton Cashmere Hoodie and Jogger Pant

  How is it already Monday again? The weekend went by way too fast for me. I know it's summer and everyone is wearing shorts and tank tops, but somehow I'm still wearing my joggers and hoodies. I guess it's become my "safety blanket" during the pandemic. Especially when I'm just hanging out at home. Plus, J.Crew's cotton-cashmere line has really impressed me so I wanted to try another matching set.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically wear size XXS in J.Crew. I'm usually a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms.  Ribbed Cotton-Cashmere Hoodie Navy Size XXS How cute is this set? Some may recall my Heather Gray cotton-cashmere set from a couple of months ago,  and I really loved wearing it so much I wanted to get another set in navy. The  Ribbed Cotton-Cashmere Hoodie  caught my eye. It's an oversized fit which is why I went with size XXS but I also think the XXXS would have worked too. The sleeves are long and very wide, there

Fit Review Friday! Athleta Easy Cozy Karma Jacket Petite

Happy Friday everyone! I've come down with a cough since I got back from NYC. Sherlock is sitting next to me as I type up this blog post. It's so funny the way he reacts to noises. I was watching The Walking Dead the other day and he's sitting there watching along with me. The walkers come on and started to growl in the weird hissing noise they kind of make and his ears flew back and his eyes got a bit wide. He's just so cute. This week I want to share my latest purchase from Athleta. I've been after something in a red burgundy color for a while and found the  Easy Cozy Karma Jacket in cassis. I've been wearing it non stop ever since I bought it. The name is spot on. It's super soft and soooooo cozy. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically wear a size 2 in Scuba Hoodies. Here I'm wearing a size PXS and it is a relaxed fit on me. Easy Cozy Karma Jacket in Cassis Size PXS  The front and the back both have a scoo

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
