Fit Review! J.Crew Cotton Cashmere Pullover Sweatshirt & Jogger Pant

  In case you missed my last post , I'm giving away a $200 Lululemon gift card to one lucky winner to celebrate my 5th anniversary of PetiteImpact. All entries must be in by noon, Friday the 22nd, Eastern time. I will randomly pick a name and announce the winner. Good luck to all!  After I saw Lululemon's Ribbed High-Rise Jogger in Heathered Copper Brown, I was obsessed with trying to find a dupe of this set since I know Lululemon isn't the most petite friendly. Teaser - I do have a review of the  Ribbed High-Rise Jogger  coming up in Heathered Black. The Heathered Copper Brown is sold out in most sizes already. Not surprised! Lululemon set I actually found a very similar set on J.Crew. 😍 I like this even more because it's cotton-cashmere and they offer size XXS which I knew would likely fit. Plus it's on sale! I actually am really excited about this matching set. This is the kind of brown I can pull off. I actually prefer the crewneck pullover over the turtleneck

Fit Review! J.Crew Jogger Pant, Pullover Sweatshirt in Cotton Cashmere

Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend. We finished up the bedroom renovation and I can't wait to share the before and after post! I think I should have that ready for you guys this week. Today I have a cotton cashmere lounge outfit that I really love from J.Crew. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and wear size XXS/XS in J.Crew.  Pullover Sweatshirt in Cotton Cashmere Heather Dove Size XS (The one I'm wearing is currently sold out but linked to a similar one.) I've been obsessed with cashmere ever since I tried Naked Cashmere . I tried J.Crew's cashmere and was disappointed with how rough it felt, but their cotton cashmere is amazingly soft. I'm wearing a pullover that's currently sold out but this one is very similar . In J.Crew I prefer a relaxed fit and I am wearing size XS. Apologies the top is very wrinkly, it looks worse in the photos than it did in person. The color heather dove is a very pretty gray. I love wearing this outfit at home on my work

Fit Review! J.Crew Petite Lodge Coat & 2021 Musings

I usually like to do New Year's resolutions but 2020 made all of that seem moot. I think being healthy, happy, and staying sane until we see Covid free days is all we can hope for. Be kind to yourself. Cut yourself some slack. Be nice to others. 2020 was a year where I was still able to exercise at home. I'll continue to do so and hopefully I'll get a little stronger this year.  My loungewear exploded. I replaced all of my bras which was pretty expensive. Looking at my spreadsheet I spent about $5,000 at Lululemon and probably close to $2,000 at Athleta in 2020. That's kind of nuts considering I spent $3000 total on both brands in 2019, which is a much more reasonable amount. I think for 2021, I want to be extremely selective on what I add to my closet this year. It has to be something I need, or needs to be replaced or just something very special.  I would also like to declutter just a little bit. I'll start donating/selling some of my things. I'll be going thr

J.Crew Review! Cropped Cardigan Sweater and Sophie Sweater Blazer Chevron

Another weekend over. I swear they go by so fast. It's almost the end of October. Normally I like to buy a few items during fall to refresh my wardrobe and more often than not, I turn to J.Crew. They always have pieces that can transition from the office to the weekend. Even though I'm no longer going into the office these days, I couldn't resist these two pieces.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a XXS/XS in J.Crew. I also wear a size 4 in Lululemon tops. Sophie Sweater Blazer Chevron  Size XXS I used to have a very similar chevron sweater from Anthropologie that I wore to death and got compliments every time I wore it. This sweater blazer kind of reminds me of that Anthropologie sweater I used to have. It's super soft and I was pleasantly surprised when I took it out of the bag at how much I liked it. The fabric is lightweight, yet cozy. This is something I would wear to the office but this is also a piece that can easily be worn on a weekend outing. Not
