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

Store Try Ons! J.Crew Essential T-shirt & Linen Roll-cuff T-Shirt

Happy Friday everyone! J.Crew is having a really good sale right now. 40% off full price items and an extra 50% off sale items. I stocked up on a few staple pieces for work. J.Crew tees are pretty much all I wear to the office. I'm wearing a size XS which I find to be very comfortable and it is semi-fitted. They are the perfect mid-weight tee. I'm also a big fan of their vintage tees which are very light weight and perfect for hot summers. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon or size XXS/XS in J.Crew tops. Essential T-Shirt Heather Dolphine Size XS These two colors are currently excluded from the promo, but they have select colors on sale . Check back next week because I managed to get the black and gray for 30% off. J.Crew offers new deals every week. Essential T-shirt Black Size XS  also wearing On The Fly Crop Size 4 (currently on sale.) I also picked up their Linen Roll-cuff T-shirt in navy and blac

J.Crew Sophie Open Front Sweater Blazer

About a year ago I purchased the Sophie open-front sweater blazer in heather gray , and I wear it almost once a week. I thought the navy would make a great addition to my work wardrobe. This sweater blazer is made of mid to light weight cotton blend fabric and is perfect to wear all year round at the office.  Sophie open-front sweater blazer   I'm wearing my usual XXS in J.Crew. I would say this sweater blazer runs large. It's possible I could size down to XXXS, but since I don't really have any complaints wearing XXS, I stuck with it.  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon and size PXS in Athleta. The sleeves are 7/8 length and because I'm so petite, they're almost full length on me. Sometimes I'll roll them up a little bit to style it but most of the time I just leave it down at the office. The length of this sweater blazer covers the bum but it's not too long that it overwhelms my petit
